Candleshop Inn Bed and Breakfast and Holistic Retreat Center
44 Freeman Street PO Box 1216
York Beach, Maine

Candleshop Inn Bed and Breakfast and Holistic Retreat Center is a beautiful three-story inn built circa 1896 in York Beach, Maine. With its serene atmosphere and beautiful ocean views, this ten guestroom inn is the perfect setting for replenishing the body, mind and spirit from the stresses of everyday life. We offer daily Yoga classes, massage therapy, an all you can eat vegetarian breakfast, and we welcome children. The owners take pride in creating an environment that is both unpretentious and nourishing. Guests begin to reconnect to a sense of inner peace with the sounds of nature and the aromas of home cooking, while enjoying sunsets on the deck, strolling along the beach,  relaxing in a rocking chair on the spacious front porch, or spending time in our meditation garden. In cooler weather, enjoy curling up in front of the wood stove with a book and hot tea. For the comfort of all guests, especially children, hosts Barbara and Michael Sheff maintain a smoke-free environment. Most of the guest bedrooms have spectacular ocean views, bringing in the healing sounds of the ocean and the clean, fresh smell of the sea. A variety of accommodations is available from full to king-size beds, or rooms with a combination. Accommodation bathrooms range from private ensuite, to private full baths and shared baths. All guest rooms have a light, airy ambience with clean uncluttered lines, muted pastels and plenty of natural light. Charming activities abound in this gorgeous area of Maine starting with nearby Short Sands Beach, Nubble Light, the historic lighthouse just off Cape Neddick, sailing, deep sea fishing or a romantic cruise. Children will love York's Wild Animal Kingdom Zoo and Amusement Park which is only a five minute walk away while dedicated shoppers can enjoy the famous Kittery Factory Outlet Mall with over 120 outlet stores. Catch a performance at Ogunquit Playhouse, one of Southern Maine's most important cultural landmarks.
