The owners of Stage Neck Inn are dedicated to providing a top-notch experience for their guests; this is evidenced Stage Neck Inn's being one of only a few properties in the entire US to have earned AAA's Four Diamond Award for Excellence consistently since the rating system began in 1976. While we cannot expand beyond the physical structure's original footprint, we can and do can improve what is contained therein.
Typically, the Inn is closed for the first two weeks of January so that renovations and cosmetic touches can be made without disturbing guests. In the winter 2013/2014 we created three luxury king guest rooms in our corner HARBORVIEW rooms. Three more rooms followed in winter 2014/2015. These new retreats became prototypes for the Luxury Guest Rooms we soon will offer throughout our Harborview and Oceanfront locations. During the past two years, we have considered your feedback on these rooms and are moving forward with a massive renovation.
This winter, we will be renovating ALL of our Oceanfront Guest Rooms and the remaining Harborview Guest Rooms. These new Luxury Guest Rooms will offer built-in wall units housing a flat screen television and a wall-mounted heating ambient fireplace plus more direct views of what you're here to enjoy ... the Atlantic Ocean and York River. Furnishings and decor will compliment the beautiful coastal vistas.
Our Beachside Guest Rooms will also be updated with new furnishings. Plus, we will be adding wall-mounted 40-inch flat screened televisions above a console area. This granite surface will provide a great space in which to set your belongings, with lots of electrical outlets for your electronic device playback and/or charging.
Our guest room security system is improving to a tap-card entry system which will require all new doors. As you can likely realize, considering that we did 3 rooms in 2014 and 3 rooms in 2015, we need more than our usual 2-week or 1-month winter closing to get this work done.
Add to these improvements the common-area renovations and our new restaurant Sandpipers. This space will combine the best aspects of our Harbor Porches and Sandpiper Bar & Grille restaurants. Our focus is on creating the perfect oceanfront gathering place for friends and family right here at Stage Neck Inn! Our plan includes a raised bar area, comfy booths and a fireplace. Of course layout of all spaces will enhance the great views of the Atlantic Ocean, our clifftop setting, and the comings and goings of fishing and pleasure craft of York Harbor. When guests re-enter Stage Neck in 2016, it will be like discovering a new getaway destination on the coast of southern Maine!
