In early November we spent the weekend in York, Maine at the Anchorage Inn. This is a family-friendly hotel, with ocean views, and it truly offers something for everyone. We loved our stay in the Ocean Suites, but you cannot go wrong with any of the rooms at this hotel!
Here’s a quick guide to a weekend away at the Anchorage Inn:
- Once you check in grab a coffee right in the lobby!
- Grab dinner at the hotel’s restaurant — Sun & Surf Restaurant, right on the beach, directly across the street from the hotel — they have a great menu with many seafood options, as well as a beer menu and wine menu. (There’s also have a great kid’s menu with all the favorites). Check the seasonal menu before you head over!
- Enjoy coffee and Sunday Brunch at the Sun & Surf Restaurant – they have such delicious food and coffee – we tried the egg breakfast and the pancakes – the kid’s pancake was made into an animal shape (I won’t ruin the surprise). The best part about Sun & Surf besides the food and drinks, are the beach views (and the view of the Nubble Lighthouse in the distance). Make sure to check the website (or call) for seasonal hours.
- Take a walk/drive to the town center which includes an arcade and candlepin bowling, local shops, coffee shops and restaurants. Check for seasonal hours, but there is plenty to do when visiting during the offseason.
Highlights: Three onsite pools and an onsite fitness center, kid-friendly hotel, onsite restaurant, and a poolside café, and beautiful Ocean Suites (private parking and entrance, fitness room, concierge level with continental breakfast and happy hour, and rooms with a fireplace, balcony, and views of the ocean).
I highly recommend staying at the Anchorage Inn when you visiting York, Maine. We plan on going back during the summer, as well. This spot is great for family getaways and family reunions, a romantic weekend, or for a group of friends. It’s the perfect hotel to return to again and again — we are already planning our next getaway!
