**Unbelievable rate for this size home!!! A very rare rental opportunity is now presenting itself in York Beach, Maine! You can now reserve the entire Candleshop Inn, once our area's premier Bed and Breakfast, for your private group. The current owners have made the hard decision not to operate this historic inn as a Bed and Breakfast, but rather are now interested in offering the entire home exclusively for weekly rental. This beautiful inn features 10 bedrooms (many with private baths) and 7 baths. There are gorgeous ocean views from many of the bedrooms, as well as the front porch. The large deck is tucked privately in the back with seating for 25 people.
The Candleshop Inn is just a short walk to Short Sands Beach in York Beach, Maine. Each of our 10 guest rooms is unique and comfortably decorated, accommodating one to five people in twin, double and/or king beds. Five of our guest rooms offer stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. In addition to a range of bedding options, we offer rooms with private full baths, 3/4 baths or half baths. In total, the house can comfortably sleep 27 people.

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.
