Honeymoon in Maine

Dockside Guest Quarters, York, Maine

When you’re planning a wedding, it’s easy to get so wrapped up in the details that you forget about the honeymoon! If you need ideas, may we suggest planning a honeymoon in Maine?

We might be a little biased, but we believe York, Maine, has it all. Are you seeking luxury accommodations? We have it. Do you love to try new restaurants? We have plenty! Do you love exploring beautiful places? York, Maine has some of the most incredible settings on the East Coast.

Accommodations for Your Honeymoon in Maine

You can put your mind at ease when you book a honeymoon with Dockside Guest Quarters. Dockside captures the essence of Maine: natural beauty, genuine hospitality and plenty of things to do and see. We’re located on a private peninsula, which affords incredible views of York Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean.

We offer several different options for your stay. The Maine House features charming rooms with large porches and sweeping water views. The Crow’s Nest, Quarterdeck and Lookout buildings feature suites. Each suite has its own kitchen and private deck.

If you’d like something more secluded, consider staying in the Captain’s Quarters. This three-bedroom seaside home offers a living room, dining room and a full kitchen.

Relaxing Honeymoon in Maine

After months of planning, take a deep breath and let go of all your worries during your honeymoon in Maine. You can relax as much (or as little) as you please. If you want to stick close to “home,” play a classic game of croquet on our lawn overlooking the ocean or a game of badminton by the garden. If you overdo it, feel free to relax in one of our Adirondack chairs and enjoy the sights and sounds of the harbor.

Borrow one of our bicycles for a tour along the beach. If you’d like to venture out a little further, rent our small outboard boat for an afternoon. Or hop on our Harbor/River Cruise offered only to Dockside Guests.

If you’d prefer to get out and about, there are a few things that should definitely be on your To Do list. Popular water-based activities include whale watching, boat tours, fishing charters and boat/kayak rentals.

Rather stay on dry land? Many of our guests enjoy scenic walks through the nature preserve or wildlife refuge. Want to find out more? Check out our blog on 5 Things to do in York, Maine for more suggestions.
