We have stayed at the Dockside many times dating back over 20 years now and have never been disappointed with our stay. The staff is always courteous, friendly and helpful and the rooms are spotless with views that are amazing. The breakfasts are delicious and the dining area is wonderful. Sitting on the front porch to watch the boats head...

Dockside quarters is off the beaten path tucked in a quiet cove with a wonderful view of the channel as it flows in and out of the harbor to the ocean. If you are looking for luxury accommodations this is not the place; but if you would like a quiet peaceful setting with friendly service and utilitarian furnishings then you...

Service was very good; breakfast was the same each day and this was disappointing; the view of the water was nice and the room was as advertised. The only issue was that a wedding was going on that weekend and most guests were in the wedding party; the restaurant was not open to the rest of the guests. This should...

I am truly glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Dockside, especially our wonderful view! Our breakfast buffet offers a wide array of items including home baked goods, artisan baked breads, bagels, several cold cereals, fresh fruit, juice, sausage and baked eggs in a ramekin. We also rotate between egg casseroles and baked french toast to add additional variety....

Restful, comfortable, close to town & a great walking path. Good restaurant for lunch & dinner on premises; healthy options for in-house breakfast. Private deck with great view of bay for each unit. Will definitely return if in York Harbor area.

My wife Jennifer and I just returned home to Columbus, OH after spending a wonderful week here. The owners Eric & Patty made sure that we, as well as all of the other guests, were treated like family. The location is ideal for making side trips to the White Mountains, Boston and points North up the coast of Maine. Highly...

My wife and I spent the most amazing time at Dockside. The location, the Owners, and if that wasn't enough.. a miracle happened. My wife of 32 years lost my Grandmothers tiny tiny diamond ring from her engagement ring. We were heartbroken. We told Patty about it and she could not have been kinder. During this week, I was getting...

First impressions go a long way! Upon arrival after a long road trip the woman that checked us in was cold, kurt, dismissive and just very unfriendly. It seemed like we were bothering her by checking in. She showed us our room which was in the main lodge just above the breakfast room. The room was clean, comfortable and charming....

Dear Erin, I was most distressed that you felt one of our staff was not providing a high level of hospitality. This is especially surprising as we all work very hard to make sure that guests have a truly great time and want to return. Unfortunately with large groups such as yours it can become a bit less orderly and...

We have been stopping here either on our way further north or for a long weekend for almost 20 years. It has never disappointed. Sitting in a wonderful spot with either an inner harbor or outer harbor and ocean view depending on where you stay, the rooms, atmosphere and sense of Maine place never fails to make the trip worthwhile....

This short trip was packed with beautiful views, great meals and even a short trip along the river and out to see the beautiful shores of York, Maine. But even more were the incredible people who work here. Each were so pleasant and eager to help make our stay just what we wanted - and needed.

We stayed at the Dockside just after Labor Day for three days. This is an outstanding find. It is located on the water next to a marina. If you want a beach, you had better ask because I am not sure if you can go in the water but it may be possible; we didn't explore the entire property. We...
