In 1732, York Harbor Inn’s proprietor sent visitors to bed with two rules: no more than five can sleep in one bed, and no boots. After guests turned in, the host would tend to their horses. From those humble beginnings, the inn has expanded into a campus of five colonial-style mansions along the Atlantic coast.
Dig in!: A free continental breakfast featuring homemade pastries is served each morning.
Seaside restaurant: Helmed by chef Gerald Bonsey, the gourmet 1637 Restaurant serves fresh Maine seafood and other New England specialties.
Grab a drink and listen to live music in the Ship’s Cellar Pub, where intricate woodwork resembles a yacht’s hull.
Luxury guest rooms are located in Harbor Crest or Chapman Cottage. Some come with a fireplace or spa tub. Country Inn guest rooms—on the second floor of the main inn—come with their own private baths and a queen-size bed.
York Harbor, Maine: Oceanfront Village with Rich Colonial History
Located on Maine’s Atlantic coast, less than 10 miles north of the New Hampshire border, York Harbor combines four historical communities into one picturesque town. The Old York Historical Society promotes the area’s rich history, showcasing colonial exhibits and landmarks. A one-room schoolhouse from 1745, a tavern dating to 1750, and the 1719 Old Gaol prison are among the sites you can visit.
Spend your day strolling along the beach, or take a drive down Route 1 to see more than 20 antique shops stocked with furniture, fine china, and the occasional wooden nickel. Set out on foot, bicycle, or horseback to explore 10,000 acres of untouched coastal forest at Mount Agamenticus Conservation Region; another nearby attraction is Wiggly Bridge, believed by many to be the smallest suspension bridge in the world.
