York Village is home to a lot of history (first settled in 1624) including very old houses to be toured, town hall and churches. There are shops for ice cream, bagels, pizza, sandwiches.
York Harbor and the York River that feeds it still include a working waterfront alongside the mansions (called “cottages”). Fishing and lobster vessels are active there. The Harbor and some very fine dining is just over a mile from our B&B.
York Beach has its own history and is very family oriented. There are lots of true cottages, camping areas and smaller restaurants to be explored. During the high season, York Beach is packed with folks who have been coming here for generations.
Cape Neddick is primarily a residential area just north of York Beach. However, there is a great lobster pound and a tavern with good food. Enjoy the views of open ocean and seaside homes as you travel Shore Road to Ogunquit. There is a very small rocky beach.
Portsmouth, NH is just 8 miles south of us and is a mecca for creative dining. New restaurants and pubs are opening all the time. The city is very influenced by UNH and has a young vibe. There are lot’s of shops. We suggest simply pulling into the parking garage and touring on foot from there. Parking on the street is challenging. Portsmouth is a very walkable town and is a foodie heaven.
