Great place for a family gathering! Ocean views were a plus we didn’t expect. Close, beautiful walk to cute, quaint York Beach.
Great house for a large group but could use a few improvements
Lovely rooms and enough bathrooms for a large group! The porch and deck were more than adequate for our group of 19. Linens and towels were nicely appointed and having 2 washers and two dryers was great. The small backup refrigerator was a blessing!! Just a short walk to the beach and town was very convenient. I would recommend this for a large group/family.
The house had plenty of room for our large family reunion. So comfortable and so close to the beach!
We had a wonderful time at York Beach. The house was perfect for our large family reunion. The kitchen was small but well stocked and had all the conveniences. The back deck fit all of our family so we usually eat outside. So nice! There was still plenty of room inside as well including a small TV room that was enjoyed by the children. The front covered porch with the rocking chairs was perfect for rocking the babies to sleep on and there was still plenty of room for frisbee, blowing bubbles and bike riding. We mostly got carry out meals from the local restaurants in walking distance. Woodys has great pizza, Gaskins had awesome barbecue and There were plenty of other places to grab food. We had a wonderful time and certainly would recommend this house for any large gathering.
Perfect place for a large family gathering. Very clean and comfortable. Loved it!n
We all had an amazing week at this beautiful inn. There were 19 of us and this place accommodated all of us perfectly. Everyone had their own rooms which were very clean and comfortable.
We enjoyed morning walks to the lighthouse and downtown. Everyone did their own thing during the day and we had dinner together at the inn most evenings. York is so beautiful and has so much to offer. We hope to come back next year. This place is perfect for a large family gathering.
Rooms were great, space for everyone, the place was clean , internet worked great. Absolutely no complaints. We'll probably book again next year! Already looking forward to it!
There were 20 of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house provided plenty of rooms for privacy, games and conversation. We even managed a sit down dinner both nights. It's just what we needed. The early risers headed to the beach for a walk or run so as not to disturb others. Even with guests playing cards in the parlor the bedrooms were very quiet and enough removed from the noise. A bonus was the weather could have not been any better.
While you are visiting the Candleshop Inn, be sure to visit the Union Bluff for a great meal and a beer at the bar. Also within walking distance is the famous Goldenrod Candy Shop. You can stand on the sidewalk and watch how this historic restaurant makes homemade salt water taffy. Take the kids inside to visit an old fashion penny candy counter, or sit at the soda fountain and have a sundae made with the Goldenrod's homemade ice cream!
There are great souvenir shops, choose Mexican, Chinese, wood grilled pizza or fresh seafood from one of the many restaurants located within a quick walk. Many nights a week, stroll over to the gazebo to hear local bands playing in the evening. Of course, there is York Wild Kingdom which features a very nice zoo and rides for the kids. Wrist bands are good for the day so go for the zoo in the afternoon, walk back to the Inn for dinner and head back for rides in the evening. Take a morning or afternoon to head to the Nubble Light House. This is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the country.
We are so lucky in York. We have 4 beautiful public beaches to choose from, and if that is not enough, take a quick ride to Ogunquit and enjoy that public beach as well. While you are in Ogunquit, enjoy the shopping and dining there as well. Or make a day of it and jump on board a whale watching boat or deep sea fishing vessel in Perkins Cove.
There is so much to do in our area we just can't cover it. Of course, a Maine vacation is all about relaxing so leave yourself plenty of time to sit and enjoy the ocean. Maine really is the way life should be.
