There is also plenty of room outside to play and relax. The view out the front door is York Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean. You might be tempted to prepare all of your meals in the large, fully equipped kitchen, but you don’t have too as the Dockside Restaurant is only a short walk away.

•Large fully equipped kitchen with center island, granite counter tops, new appliances, dishes, pots, pans, utensils and cutlery.

•Master bedroom – full bath, king bed and water view.


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.

Quite and private, great location, great views.

  • 5 of 5

We did a four week rental at the Dockside-Captain's Quarters and had a truly enjoyable time. The house is quiet and private and has great views of the ocean and harbor entrance. Dockside is a great location for exploring the south coast of Maine. York Harbor is a lovely village with beautiful homes, great restaurants and bars, and Ogunquit and Kennebunkport are a short drive away. This is a large, three bedroom house suitable for a family or a couple of close friends. The innkeepers, Eric and Carol, and their staff, are all very friendly and accommodating. Dockside provides a really nice marina and a very good restaurant. While the Captain's Quarters has a wonderful, large deck, I would recommend taking the time to go up to the Maine House and sit out on the front porch. I have found few things more relaxing and enjoyable than sitting on this porch in the afternoon [with a tall rum drink] and watching the boats coming and going from the harbor. If you are looking for a large house on coast of Maine with a great location and great views, then this is the place.

Perfect for Extend Family Escapes

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I discovered the Dockside in the late 90's and enjoyed escaping there even in the late fall, for some rooms not only have great views but fireplaces as well. Once my wife passed, my family started sharing the Dockside and the Captain's Quarters, which has room enough for our nine. With three sleeping quarters, my two children's families each have a room of their own, and I get to escape to a wonderful master bedroom. We love the place so much that this year my daughter's family flew in from Texas and my son's drove in from Western New York. Eric, Carol, and their staff make the Dockside a perfect family escape, and you couldn't ask for more family friendly accommodations than the Captain's Quarters. We only wish we could come more often.

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!

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".

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!
