Winter Visits

We’d be happy to schedule a guided winter visit

Please note: During the off-season our entrance is not at its summer best; snow piles up, boats are stored in the parking lot. Please imagine… full green trees, manicured lawns, warm summer breezes.

Call 207-363-2722 or email for more information or to start planning your ceremony, at our award-winning York Maine wedding venue today.

Southern Maine wedding ceremonies are very special events at Dockside Guest Quarters. Our lovely coastal York Maine wedding venue has the most beautiful view of York Harbor and all its nautical activities; gleaming yachts and colorful lobster boats are just the beginning.

We have everything onsite at our Maine resort to make your special day memorable — chair rentals for your ocean front wedding ceremony, a beautiful dining room perched on the shore of York harbor, large dance floor, exquisite lodging for your out of town guests and wonderful, wonderful food.



Ceremonies are held on front lawn of the historic Inn facing the Atlantic Ocean. Delicious house made hors d’ oeuvres and cocktails follow the ceremony on the same ocean front lawn.


The food, simply delicious! We are here for you; menus are custom crafted to reflect your taste and budget. The choice is up to you — elegant served meals, station buffets, lobster bakes — they each are presented with style. Mix in family, friends and music and you have all the ingredients for an exceptionally fun reception experience to remember.


Large Receptions: You may reserve the exclusive use of our grounds and restaurant with a minimum reservation of 100 guests, however we can accommodate up to160 guests.

Intimate Receptions: If your party calls for a more intimate setting (25-60 guests) we offer you our Deck Room with sweeping view of York Harbor.

Rehearsal Dinners & Private Dining

Rehearsal Dinners & Private Dining

The approach to Dockside Restaurant brings you over the York River Bridge, to the west you will see Sewall’s Bridge, a treasured colonial land mark and to the east; York Harbor. Magnificent “summer cottages” dot the coast while lobster boats, bottom draggers, tuna rigged harpoon boats and private yachts of every description ply the harbor’s waters.

Your guests can be entertained with hors d oeuvres and drinks on the restaurant’s lawn overlooking York Harbor. Following your gathering, your guests will make their way past our lovely gardens on their way to the Deckroom in the Dockside Restaurant.

The Deckroom has a maximum seating capacity of 64 guests, seated at 6 linen draped round tables. The view from the Deckroom is quintessential Maine, boats, docks, wildlife and people just enjoying the boating life. The Deckroom is intimate and therefore not suitable for DJ’s or bands, background music is played through our house system while you enjoy your guests company.

We also have a second area for a semi-private gathering with a maximum of 24 guests, seated at 2 rectangular tables overlooking York Harbor.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or to schedule an appointment to see these dining options and discuss all your parties’ details.
