About the Inn

You are cordialBuilt in 1887ly invited to take a step back in time and experience The Sea Rose Inn. Built in 1857, this historic home was a stagecoach stop and inn for travelers prior to crossing the York River on their way north. The home was also a stop along the Underground Railroad, pre-civil war.

“Architecturally, York is a surviving late 17th and 18th century town. Its buildings are not great mansions but are the homes of the pioneers of this country. These homes and also the public buildings are in a remarkable state of preservation because of the work of local people who realize their proud history and contributions of their ancestors to the history of this country.” (1776-1976 Commemorative Publication of the York, Maine Bicentennial Committee)
