My husband and I were looking for a quaint New England venue with a ton of charm and character. We did not want the sterile, one size fits all hotel venue. We found the York Harbor Inn. Not only does this Inn explode with New England charm and rustic character, it is also extremely well kept, clean and updated. It's 100% New England gorgeous. Plus the view of the ocean right out the windows made for absolutely stunning pictures. And that is only the venue!Sent on 03/24/2017
The staff is outstanding!!!! You work with Cheyenne to plan all the details for your day and she is wonderful. Paul will provide you with the venue tour and constant pampering the day of. And Greg will make sure you and your guests will eat the most amazing New England food they've ever had. All three of them are amazing and extremely good at their jobs but above that, I couldn't believe how they made us feel like we were unique and like we were the only couple getting married there. I know there are hundreds of weddings there every year but they made us feel like we were the ONLY one. They were truly happy for us and you can easily tell that they love their jobs.
Also one last comment - the food really is outstanding. Many weddings I've been to were gorgeous with sub par food - not here. Get the chicken stuffed lobster, you'll know what I'm talking about. Also do a tasting, it's a very nice romantic dinner and you get to taste all your food!

We had our wedding a few weeks ago at the York Harbor Inn and cannot say enough great things about the venue and the incredible staff. Paul, Greg and Cheyenne are the A-team. Our friends and family were so impressed with them. Their support goes way above and beyond the norm for a wedding venue. They were incredibly responsive and helpful through the entire planning process and once we arrived the day before our wedding, they took literally everything off of our plates. We were able to thoroughly enjoy the entire weekend without worrying about a single vendor or detail!Sent on 06/20/2017
In addition to the YHI's amazing staff, this venue is just absolutely stunning. We fell in love with it the moment we saw it. It's everything we hoped for when we dreamed of our wedding day! The food is AMAZING. At least half of our guests commented specifically that this was the best wedding food they had ever had. Several went above that praise and said it was the best steak they had ever had anywhere!
Finally, we had a small wedding of about 30 guests. While it is abundantly clear that the YHI would do an incredible job with larger weddings (they have a ballroom with capacity for a much larger wedding than ours!) it meant so much to us that they gave us the same care and attention for our intimate wedding. They really made our vision come to life and we are so thankful that we chose this venue for our special day.

The Best Choice in the York Area
On July 12, 2019 we had our reception at the York Harbor Inn, after having our ceremony across the street, overlooking the ocean at the Hartley-Mason Reservation. Cheyenne Wright was our wedding planner/coordinator, and she was amazing. She took us through every step of the process with patience and a treasure trove of information. All of the decisions were ours, of course, but made through her gentle guidance. She became a dear friend through the process.Sent on 09/04/2019
The room where we had the reception was elegant, while not stuffy. We had a smaller wedding (about 40), but they handle larger weddings as well. They worked with us to decorate the facility in just the way we had dreamed. The food was wonderful--everything from the appetizers to the salads, side dishes and amazing entrees.
Every one of our guests raved about the York Harbor Inn. Beyond Cheyenne, Paul Gagnon the Guest Services Manager and Greg Silva who oversaw the food and restaurant aspects, were wonderful.
I cannot praise the York Harbor Inn enough! Please do not book your wedding in the York/Kittery area without first speaking with Cheyenne!
Paul and Cheyenne are one of the elite teams to handle your wedding reception in the state of Maine. They absolutely make sure everything runs smoothly throughout the day and pay close attention to detail. You can't go wrong working with them and you will have a lot of fun as well!
Charming, New England elegance! YHI has friendly and approachable staff (Cheyenne is so kind and down-to-earth!) and multiple rooms for various wedding sizes on a beautiful property just across from the beach. A very unique and comfortable venue with great views and wonderful decorating/landscaping.
Friendly, professional staff, check. Great town, check. Walk to the beach, check. Maine to Boston Photo Booth Rental loves bringing our booth to the York Harbor Inn! I've also had the pleasure of staying in their rooms. Very cozy. Maine at its best.
