It's beach-going season here at Stage Neck Inn. Did you know that powder makes removing beach sand from your skin easier? Pack your favorite un-sented powder in your beach bag. We also offer our guests a complimentary outdoor shower.
The beach next to the Inn is named "Harbor Beach". This tumbled-rock lined sandy beach and Stage Neck Inn were recently listed in "9 Underrated Beach Destinations". Harbor Beach's beautiful sand transitions gently into the ocean on a gradual incline, making it ideal for wading. The tides vary throughout the day and are documented (search "York Harbor tides"). You'll enjoy the sound of the waves on the sand as well as on the rocky peninsula upon which the Inn is situated. The crannies and nooks of the cliffs are an excellent spot for beach combing for shells and for other treasures.
Beyond the beach is a scenic cliffwalk which takes you past the "summer cottages" of York Harbor. About a mile from the Inn is Long Sands Beach which offers a long expanse of sandy beach with views of the Nubble Lighthouse. York is also home to Short Sands beach which offers a beach-resort atmosphere with an arcade, band stand, playground as well as restaurants and shops.
Stage Neck Inn also offers a large outdoor pool overlooking the beach. It is great for those guests wishing to take a swim but not wanting to venture into the ocean.
