I know, I know - you've been holding your breath - but now you made it! The first entry is here. I arrived last Thursday night in Boston, after a boring, exhausting flight via Washington. When exactly did traveling stop being fun? Well, probably once the flights got so "cheap" and the airlines had to put in additional rows ...
... and take some pics, and take in the view, which is unbelievable.....the Atlantic Ocean in one direction and Portland Harbor in the other. A lighthouse on land next to me and another on a small island right off shore. Sailboats and other boats sailing by. And the blue of the water and the blue of the sky could not have been any more beautiful. But I gave in to my exhaustion, and headed back to the car. The man at the hotel had also told me about ...
- Should be a drive of about 2-3 hours but it takes us 8. In that drive it rains about 4-6 INCHES and at times is very hard to see but no problem cause we are stuck in long weekend traffic and are going 5kph on the hwy. Get to a campground that advertised on their website ...
this area of main (the souther tip) is called "the beaches". so far we have been to the north woods, downeast, midcoast, and the beaches, we missed the lakes region. so i guess we will have to come back and see the lakes!!! but while we visit the lakes, we'd like to go back to all the other regions as well.
ogunquit, is another one of those charming,fun, great restaurants, cool shops, great beaches kind of town, ...
... for the roads again.
Pretty country from Mystic Harbor to South Hampton, New Hampshire. But a tiring day. Met new folks in campgrounds that gave us ideas of where we wanted to tour. Boston was one, Lighthouses was another, finding Lobster or good clam chowder was another. We took that remainder of the day easy, because as you can all guess it was still warm.

Historical Traveler Reviews York Harbor Inn
My daughter's wedding reception was held at the York Harbor Inn Aug, 2004. We had many out of town guests who stayed at the Inn. The day of the wedding was the hottest, most humid day of the entire summer. The A/C in our room was okay but still a bit warm. Didn't complain. The A/C in the function room was nearly non-existent! We complained several times to no avail. After the wedding I contacted the person in charge of functions & lodged a complaint. She never got back to me. A couple of months later I wrote a letter to the Innkeeper. He finally replied after 6 wks and gave me a long explanation of how he knew it was a problem & what he did to fix it. Considering that upwards of $25,000 was spent that weekend from the wedding and our guests it was a rather limp response to a very real problem. So if you ever think you might want to stay at this Inn AND have an expensive function there don't expect much satisfaction if something goes wrong.
I stayed in a luxury room at York Harbor Inn in June 2005. The grounds around the inn are well manicured, and you generally get the "Maine" feeling when you pull in. There's a nice view of the ocean, but unfortunately you have to look across route 1A to see it.
On a trip to Boston at Easter 2004 husband and myself decided to explore further afield to Maine. On the way we stumbled across the Kittery Outlet Centres and stopped for a browse. If you can put aside the strange layout of the outlet centres which are spread out on either side of the busy main road for about a mile and a half you should enjoy some excellent bargain hunting. Don't even attempt to cross the road from one side to the other, just drive across and in and out of each individual outlet, the road is far too busy for pedestrians!. The usual suspects are represented there, RL, Tommy Hilfiger, OskKosh, Etienne Aigner, Old Navy, Timberland, etc. The best bargains to be had were in the OshKosh shop (if you have kids although they do have some good bargains in the adult section), Timberland and the Coach shop if you have a penchant for expensive purses or wallets (like me!).
A wonderful time at York Harbor Inn
My sister and I just came back from our trip to York Beach, Maine and stayed at a wonderful inn - York Harbor Inn. We loved the attention to every request, the cleanliness of the inn, the friendliness of the staff and the absolutely fabulous meals in the dining room. We enjoyed our evenings in our lovely room with our private fireplace and the sound of the ocean. A very nice continental breakfast was available each morning and when we said we had to leave before breakfast was served, we were offered a packaged breakfast to take with us. A very lovely place to stay.
Stayed here after a busy week exploring new york and boston. It was the perfect place to relax - a romantic inn set across from the beach in the small sleepy town of york harbor. We were lucky to have explored the hotels website before visiting and got amazing value with $99 internet special room rate (midweek) including breakfast. Our room was charming with four poster bed and ensuite. The best thing about this place is the atmosphere - staff are very friendly and drinking and eating in the cellar pub (which by the way serves excellent food) made us feel almost like locals. The hot tub on site was a bonus - especially as the ocean was too cold for swimming (in june!). Shopaholics watch out as you are only 5-10 mins drive from kittery outlet village and also near fox run mall, newington (NH - therefore tax free shopping).
We love it...
We have been going to the York Harbor Inn for 15 years and love the Inn, its staff and its amenities! If you're looking for a hotel, this is not it. If you're looking for charm, friendliness and great service, I don't know of any place better.
Our large "superior" room with a water view turned out to be a small converted attic space. The view was of route 1a and a tree filled park, beyond which we were able to "hear" the ocean. We were staying in the Harbor Cliffs House of the York Harbor Inn. With a name like that you might expect the hotel to be right on the water. On the website and in the brochure there are photos taken from this building that clearly show the ocean, but they were taken in the winter when the trees are bare.
Loved the York Harbor Motel
We Loved the York Harbor Motel. We stayed in Building A, had private balconies! They also allowed smoking although the room did NOT smell like they did! We spent most of the weekend on "our" balcony watching the waves roll in. We chose the third floor because nobody would be walking over our heads, and the view was Fantastic! Beds were comfortable, the room seemed clean, and we will be back!
We spent two night at the York Harbor Inn, in a beautiful suite with a seperate living room, bedroom, indoor jacuzzi, kitchen facilities, and private outdoor deck. We also had full use of the big outdoor jacuzzi.
Nicely appointed rooms. We stayed in the crowe's nest which was a bit of a challenge to get too. A bit disappointed that the Inn is seperated from the ocean by Route 1. A great little pub and had an overall nice time.
