Inn & About

The Inn 

The Lighthouse Inn & Carriage House is made up of two types of rooms…our 23 spacious guest rooms with either two double beds, one queen bed or one king bed (king bedrooms include a pullout couch)…and our 6 carriage house rooms that are our more luxurious offerings.  The property also offers a number of amenities to help you enjoy your stay. In addition to our 29 rooms, pool, hot tub, outdoor showers, relaxing grounds, beach wagons, and ample parking, we offer a light continental breakfast to help get you started in the morning.

And we are located in the heart of everything! We are a 100 yards from the tip of Long Sands Beach, and 1/2 a mile from Short Sands Beach and York Beach Center, where you’ll find plenty of restaurants, shops, the Arcade and more.

Consider Hosting Your Event With Us

Our reception lounge is located in the main building (The Carriage House) and is a great place to spend time over coffee in the morning or to relax later in the day.  The contemporary, beachy feel, comfortable couches and chairs and large dining table also make this a terrific space to consider when planning a family reunion or other group event.  We’ve hosted business retreats and wedding receptions for over 70 people…Foster’s Clambake catered a delicious New England Clambake dinner for these occasions and the guests used the lawn, courtyard and spacious pool area for outdoor gathering. And more recently we hosted an engagement party for 50, catered by Mei Mei of Boston…the food was amazing!  We also have great space right next to the pool for a food truck (yes, we’ve done that too!)…so the possibilities are endless.  The best time to consider an event with us is in May, June, September or October.  Give us a call today and we’ll be happy to share ideas on how to make your gathering a memorable one.

We love the ocean…anything near it, on it, in it!

Growing up on Long Island Sound was about one thing… babysitting and mowing lawns so we had money to put gas in the boat and go…fishing, swimming, catching horseshoe crabs, water skiing, exploring uncharted beaches and magical finds. There was nothing better then…and there’s nothing better now. So we are in our element here at The Lighthouse Inn and Carriage House, where we can share with our guests all the wonderful things York Beach has to offer, and ensure you get a great night sleep, to boot!
