This is a quiet, relaxing inn. Located right on the beach. Ask for a beachfront room so you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Walking distance to downtown with lots of shopping and dining. Rooms were very clean and quaint. Important notes: the rooms share bathrooms. They are very nice and kept clean. I was uncomfortable with...

Right on the water at Short Sands Beach and across the street from the boardwalk. My room was lovely and overlooked the ocean. At night I could hear the waves slapping the shore. I stayed an extra day and even then, I hated to leave. It was so peaceful and so welcoming. The front porch is a great place for...

My boyfriend booked us a room here for one night of our last minute, two night getaway. He had stayed here many years ago and recalled fond memories of the owners, family and fun times. I was pleased to find our room quaint, clean, a comfy bed, and having a similar coverlet as my grandmother's bed once had. We were...

My husband and I have stayed at the Katahdin Inn for many years in the summer when I have a concert at the gazebo in Ellis Park. The inn is like a home away from home, with comfortable rooms, most with views of the beach. The inn is extremely clean, and the shared baths are conveniently located and very modern....

The Kathadin Inn is a homey guest house right at the beach -- at Short Sands in York Beach, Maine. There are nine guest rooms -- some with bath and shower; some with a sink and the second & third floors have two bathrooms down the hall -- two with showers. Fresh coffee is brewed each morning, beach chairs are...

Immaculate Guest house on the water. Front room view of the bay and sounds of the ocean at night make this an annual must. Sitting on the porch people watching or walking around town makes life slow and easy! Rae and Bob take great care of their guests and are always on top of everything. Best deal in town.

My husband and I have stayed at this inn many times over the years, and we feel like the inn keepers are now good friends. Bob and Rae are friendly, caring owners who treat their guests like family. The inn is so homey and comfortable, with a beautiful living room area and a wonderful porch on the front with a...

I first chanced on this lovely sunny colored inn decades ago while making a scenic ocean drive. The warmth and charm of the both the Inn and the Inn keepers over time has brought me back there for mini vacations all four seasons of the year. I have gone to other inns and motels along the coast of Mane, but...

As far as I am convinced, this is the best place on earth! Imagine laying in your bed, your head on a super comfortable pillow, gazing out your window, watching the ocean waves lapping at the shore. Exceptionally clean, charmingly decorated, gracious generous hosts, reasonable prices...what's not to love. This was my second stay, but it will certainly not be...

“Ask for one of the two front rooms on the second floor -- if they are still available...you'll be able to hear the waves of the ocean ... which will lull you to sleep.”

“Ask for ocean front!”

“A few rooms have a private bath, but most have a shared bath. With two bathrooms on each floor (a full bath and a half bath), there are enough to accommodate the number of guests. The rooms are all fairly quiet, especially the ones in the back and on the third floor. The sound of the surf in the front rooms lulls one to sleep!”
