Cutty Sark Motel

Reviewed 21 September 2013

This motel is truly a touch of heaven. The location is the best in the town of York. I could lay in bed at night and watch Boon Island light flash and see the full moons reflection on the sea. The beautiful sound of the waves splashing on the beach was such a perfect way to fall asleep each night. Waking up to a beautiful sunrise each morning was just heavenly. Room was newly done over and very clean. The staff was very friendly and you were made to feel like family. I dropped my cell phone in the ocean one evening and I went to the office and the staff lent me a hair dryer to help dry the phone out, and yes the phone is fine. :) The only thing was the Wi-Fi didn't work the whole week but owner was actively working on it to get the issue resolved. I truly enjoyed my stay here so much. I am planning on coming back next Fall. Fall is a nice quiet time of year to come to Maine. We had perfect weather the whole week. I highly recommend the Cutter Sark.

What a breath of fresh air, literally. Spectacular ocean views( we prefer the 3rd floor lower building) with gentle breezes blowing in our open windows making the night's sleep totally restful. We taped the sounds of the surf and plan to bring it home with us to allow us an extended vacation feeling even after we have departed. The location of Cutty Sark is wonderful. Long Sands just in front of us, Nubble Light along the road behind us and Short Sands a walkable distance as well. No excuses not to enjoy all of the local attractions. We make York Beach and the Cutty Sark an annual escape and renewal experience.

Room Tip: Plan a few extra minutes at both ends of your stay to enjoy the comfortable grassy area in front of...

Nice located motel, directly at the beach. Every room has a great ocean view. The hotel ist simple, but clean. Close to the Nubble Lighthouse, where nearby is a very nice restaurant called the Fox's Lobster House.

Just a simple motel but every room looks out over Long Sands beach, York Maine. Around the corner is The Nubble point Light house. about 10 miles to Ogunquit Maine, a small art town with another beautiful beach...very Gay friendly. Lots of great restaurants.

Room Tip: All rooms have ocean view.....Air conditioning not worth the upgrade in price, unless you are there...

We had a wonderful stay at the Cutty Sark! We had a room on the 3rd Floor with A/C. It was clean and in good shape. It looked like it had been refurbished recently. The view was spectacular. It is very close (less than 5 Min drive) to the Nubble lighthouse. They have a stairway that goes right down to the beach. If you have little children, you may want to take a short walk (less than 5 min) to the nearest public stairway because the stairway from the Cutty Sark leads to a rocky area. If you can hack a short walk over the rocks, you will end up right on the sand. Plenty of beach during low tide. We loved it and really have no complaints....Oh wait, my wife was a bit upset because there was no hair drier in the room. I told her to dry her hair with the fan in the bathroom...It worked...lol...Thank you Cutty Sark...We'll be back!!!

It's ever-so- special when you find a piece of heaven on earth that a family such as the Hughes brothers (and their Father before them) willingly share with us through the Cutty Sark. I've been going since the 70's and appreciate it each and every time I go (which avaerages at least once a month :) This is a wonderful and simply clean cut motel that is managed in a special, caring way. Peter and Patrick care in ways many may not see such as:
allowing those of us with little dog buddies visit in off season,
showing up at the hospital when one of their guests unexpectedly needed to go,
making a ramp to ease the efforts of a patron with mobility challenges,
taking out the beautiful bushes to make it easier to come and go from the 1st floor rooms,
lining up assistence for their help to come and go safely, and
stopping by to say "Hi" to those of us who come (just to mention a few).
I am always inviting and enjoy sharing this wonderful vacation home with my family and friends. We love it!
So come and enjoy this beautiful place on the ocean. Listen to the waves rolling up right under your window with the greatest views...Sleep like a baby. It is so worth it!!!

Room Tip: All rooms have incredible ocean views and excellent water pressure.

After coming here for 15 years(twice a summer), we were very disappointed by the corporate retreat (CTP-Boston) who had an open bar and started drinking at 1 in the afternoon, and dropping "F" bombs around the children. Complaints to management were answered with "it' s the daytime...we put on functions all the time, I don't know what to tell you" Other guests were driven from the grass terrace by the boorish alcohol driven mess. We have kept coming back because it was peaceful and relaxing, as well as family friendly, no where was it ever mentioned that they have functions like this. It is a beautiful view and the rooms are ok, but check with management prior to booking for any functions that will keep you from enjoying their advertised peaceful and relaxing place to stay.
