The Sand and Surf -- For more than a century, the Sand and Surf in York, Maine has welcomed summer guests to a magnificent setting. This newly renovated turn-of-the-century home sits majestically above the ocean. Go back to those gentler times of summers on the rugged coast of Maine: relaxing afternoons on the porch, strolling the beach or savoring the local attractions.

You'll enjoy spectacular views from the enclosed and open porches. The comfortable rooms, many with ocean or beach views, are quaintly appointed with charming antiques. Drift off to sleep while listening to the sounds of the ocean. Relax in the front parlor by the fireplace to read a good book. The Inn is being offered for large group rental and sleeps 25. Whether a family reunion, retreat, or wedding-- the amenities plus the location makes the Sand and Surf a perfect place to have your event.

York, Maine is one of Maine's premier vacation spots!

A Good time for All Ages

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Sand & Surf. The house was in great condition and very clean. Our favorite spot is the front porch, the views and sunsets are beautiful. They were 16 in our group and everyone had their own space. We will be back next year. Thank you to Ed & Barbara.

Another great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a terrific week at Sand & Surf. It is a wonderful house for a large group. We had our children, spouses, grandchildren (16 total). The house just lends itself to large groups, so much room. Our favorite is probably the front porch. We eat dinner there every night. The sunsets are beautiful. We will be back again. Thank you Ed & Barbara for taking such good care of your house. Grammy & Grampy of Topsfield, Ma.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided that we wanted to have our wedding in York. After searching for homes we decided that this house would be perfect. After looking through the pictures for months, the day finally arrived when we got to check in. We met with Ed and he gave us a full tour of the house. He was SO helpful and accommodating. The house is stunning. Every room is beautifully decorated and SOO clean. The entire house was immaculate. We had 20 guests staying with us any there was plenty of room. Everyone slept great and there were plenty of bathrooms for all guests to use. The location of the house is within walking distance to downtown, Nubble Light and Brown's Ice Cream. I honestly don't think we could have found a better location if we tried. I highly recommend this house to anyone who wants a perfect retreat.

I can't say enough about how perfect this was!!

  • 5 of 5

We hosted 23 of our family members in this house for our wedding and we wished we could have stayed longer--the accommodations and location were just PERFECT! Ed and Barbara were excellent to work with--we could tell just how much they care about their property as it is clearly kept in tip-top shape. My parents visited it during the winter months and thought maybe the upstairs seemed "cramped"...well, it was absolutely fine! Plenty of bathrooms and space for everyone to feel comfortable. We didn't even get to use every space in the house since there were so many common areas to choose from (and the weather made it hard not to spend most of our time out on the beautiful porch or across the street on the yard next to the ocean!) Finally, a note on the kitchen--fully stocked with every utensil we needed, two fridges AND 2 dishwashers!) I really can't say enough about how perfect our time was at the house. Thank you, Ed and Barbara!

Work Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have used the Sand and Surf House for a work retreat, once in November and most recently in March. York off season is very quiet, but the house is lovely and warm and is the perfect location. There are enough bedrooms and bathrooms to offer privacy for co workers and the dinning area made for a great meeting space. We love the house and Ed was wonderful to work with. We will be back again.
