History
The summer residents of York Harbor founded the York Harbor Reading Room in 1897, renting a cottage on Mason’s Hill in which they could gather while spending time there in the warmer weather. Twelve years later the space was too small to accommodate the growing group of members, and the clubhouse as it stands today was opened in 1910. This venue is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    I cannot speak highly enough of the York Harbor Reading Room. From the very beginning, their wedding coordinator Mary was so helpful. We had our ceremony on the deck overlooking the water, the cocktail hour on the deck and lower level, and the reception in the main dining and dance area. We loved having the entire place to ourselves, and that they took care of all linens, chairs, setup, bar and catering. There were many servers so everything went very smoothly. And the food was AMAZING. We live in the city and tend to be picky foodies, but this far exceeded our expectations. The Reading Room was a bit expensive, but so worth it for everything we received.
