My husband and I have been visiting York Beach for over 30 years. We love the old-fashioned charm of the place -- no huge hotels to destroy the peace. And nothing beats a morning or moonlight stroll on Long Beach. Since Lighthouse Inn got excellent reviews, offered a great price and is a short walk from Long Beach, we decided... More

Overall, our experience was very good at the Lighthouse Inn. Overall, I would probably lean toward rating the Inn at four stars, but the excellent service from Maria really caused me to round this rating higher. Positives: - Good rate - Convenient location - Ample continental breakfast (with a few nits below) - Comfortable bed - Nice pool (though was... More

After staying in New Hampshire for a few days with my two teen girls, I thought that it would be really lovely to spend a night near the beach. After reading many positive reviews on Tripadvisor, I decided to book a night at the Lighthouse Inn and Carriage House. We arrived in the mid afternoon and were warmly greeted by... More

We spent two fabulous nights at the Lighthouse Inn in one of the updated rooms that was utterly charming. We felt as if we were staying at a friend's large vacation home on the coast of Maine. We had a private entrance, sitting porch, access to pool and hot tub, yummy breakfast, wifi......what else could we need? The location is... More

Our two day stay at this 30 room B&B turned out to be the perfect choice for us. The location was less than 5min walking distance to long sands beach and .9 miles from the scenic nubble light house. The rooms were comfortable and clean with cheery decor. The main carriage space was charmingly decorated, with exposed beams and hardwood... More

I have been going to this Inn for over 20 yrs and Randy is one of the nicest folks anyone will ever meet. I remember one year a pompous customer walked in and ask for the best room in the place, Randy tried to tell him about cost, the customer interrupted and said money was no object and to give...

Hi, my name is Diane Pace, owner of The Lighthouse Inn & Carriage House. I bought the Inn from Randy 18 months ago, and have since heard many great stories about the winter weekend dinners he hosted. I'm glad you have those memories and are continuing your tradition of annual visits with us. We have redone every room on the... More

I stayed her for one night just for a mini get away. The Inn was very nice and centrally located to the beach and Nubble lighthouse. There is a great ice cream place just a short distance down on the way to Nubble light. The inn was very clean. Pool area was clean and in a cozy spot. The only... More

Hi there...my name is Diane Pace, owner of The Lighthouse Inn & Carriage House. First of all, thank you for staying with us. While it is rare that we host large corporate groups, this particular company stayed with us last year, and they are a very respectful and courteous crowd. But I can understand how it may have felt a... More

We stayed at the Lighthouse Inn several times prior to 2013. The owner was repulsive and offensive. Dianne bought the property two years ago and we are now "repeat offenders." Love this property! Love.

This was a great find. I came up here with a couple of friends to get away for a few days, and this was the perfect place. The staff was extremely friendly and hospitable and provided us with snacks and breakfast each day, and recommendations on local sites and restaurants. The Inn has the uniqueness and charm of a small... More

I've been going to York Beach over 60 years, often staying with friends, but I have now found my York Beach home away from home. This property is a great combination of newly redone small, boutique-like motel and a Carriage House dating back to the 1800s where each room is unique. It came under new ownership just 18 months ago,... More
