A guest recetly sent us this note:: We have been staying with you for several years now and always look forward to returning. The unmatched location, the comfortable accommodations with magnificent views, the very helpful and pleasant staff all are responsible for this. There is a lovely quality about the Dockside which reflects “old Maine” and we hope that never changes. It is comforting to return and find things as they were the last time we were there. So many places make drastic changes which often ruin their original true Maine character so we are always glad you haven’t done that. In this hectic and quickly changing world, it is nice to find some place upon which to depend. So as always, we had a great time and look forward to our next stay with you.

A Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Finding the perfect vacation spot for a family of 15 isn't easy, however, the Captain's Quarters at Dockside is the perfect solution. We have been renting the Captain's Quarters along with the adjoining suites for many years. The view is breathtaking, the accommodations are inviting, comfortable and clean. The privacy offered in that particular setting is unparalleled and the lawn and surrounding grounds offer so much for our children & grandchildren. The innkeepers are perfect hosts and are always available to answer questions and provide local information, as well as great stories about living on the coast of Maine. If you choose the breakfast package, the homemade muffins, quiche, fruit etc are delicious and eating on the grand porch of the main house offers phenomenal views of the York River and harbor. Eating in is easy as the kitchen has everything needed for preparing casual family dining including an outdoor grill. Enjoy falling asleep to the sound of the changing tides and awaken to a gorgeous sunrise! A perfect family vacation!

A Fabulous Place for Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Captains Quarters for an intergenerational vacation of grandparents, parents and children. What a Find! Ample space(3 bedrooms) with a stunningly gorgeous view of the river. The Quarters were nicely furnished with a full kitchen and cooking equipment and a washer dryer. No need to go out for meals unless you want to. Also an outdoor grill for cookouts.

We took advantage of their boat rental for a wonderful day. Eric was terrific suggesting where to go on the river and ocean. They also provided beach chairs. Badmitten and shuffleboard for the kids. Kayaking available in walking distance. Beach a short drive.

Our one week vacation last year was so successful that we reserved for two weeks this summer!

Travelling Texan

Dockside is a great place; its pictures don't do it justice. The setting, with its water views, is outstanding. The location is peaceful and quiet, yet it is close to many activities. The rooms are well appointed and clean, and the food at both the Inn breakfast and the onsite restaurant is excellent. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

My wife and I have stayed at Dockside the last two years (just the two of us) and were joined this year for part of the stay by our immediate family (all 19 of us). Dockside worked for us for both the large group and as a couple. The larger group enjoyed activities such as the nearby beaches, sightseeing, kayaking and especially some competitive shuffleboard games onsite. The Captain's Quarters served very well as a gathering spot for family dinners and games. The BBQ grill was a little rickety, but the staff quickly repaired it for our use. The Inn breakfast also served as an impromptu gathering place for family chats. My 7 year old granddaughter best summed up our feelings about Dockside when, on departure morning, she said to me " Papa, I don't want to leave this place".

Home away from home in gorgous waterside setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 enjoyed a wonderful week stay in this house two years in a row. Two large bedrooms are upstairs with a full bath in between; a huge master bedroom with sitting area and a full bath is downstairs. A half bath is off the entry way.

We loved sitting on the porch and watching the lobsterboats go by. A green lawn rolls down to the edge of the sea and gave our grandchildren a great place to play.

The Dockside also has a restaurant which offers seafood, steaks, and other selections - excellent cuisine and open for lunch and dinner on most days.

With the perfect setting, spacious house, and restaurant it provided us a perfect vacation. Highly recommended!

We are located on a private peninsula in York Harbor, Maine with unsurpassed

views of York Harbor and the ocean. Yet we are only 2 hours away from the White Mountains in NH, 1.5 hrs from Boston and 1 hr away from Portland, ME. This central location is ideal for taking advantage of all the areas offerings, yet there is plenty to do near by or on site. There are four beaches in York, antique shopping, nature walks, fishing, golf, lighthouses, whale watching and of course many fishing opportunities. The famous Kittery Outlets are nearby.

Truly in the center of a great area!
