History

York Beach, ME
1898

In 2014, Kearsarge House owners Elaine and Michael Morgillo began testing interest in opening the York Beach Residence Club, the Short Sands Beach landmark, prior to renovating the 1898 structure. The vision was ambitious: develop an affordable higher-end option for people to enjoy the beauties of York Beach without having to spend half a million. They loved the concept of allowing visitors to be able to spend more than just the summer in York. The vision benefited potential owners, guests, and the community. Next came the work.

Owners and guests are literally just footsteps away from the beach. Reservation inquiries and ownership continues to increase. The York Beach Residence Club will sell its remaining units, and then it will focus on resort reservations and club owner experience.

Breaking Ground

Development

By the end of 2016, York Beach Residence Club’s beauty and charm was evident. Prior to opening, all three of the retail spaces were sold including the one restaurant space. People noticing the potential and luxury jumped on the opportunity to become an owner. Eighty percent of all the fractional share condominiums were sold.  The Morgillos’ goal of changing the tenor of York Beach to more of a year-round community appeared to be coming to fruition.

Restaurants
As a Mainer, we are proud of our seafood with York Beach has many options. Beyond lobster our beach town offers culture, including our favorite restaurant 1652 Italian restaurant located on the main floor of the resort.
Nubble Lighthouse
The most popular Maine coast attraction on the planet, Nubble Lighthouse located on the point of Cape Neddick, is a 1.3 mile journey from the resort. We recommend walking. Start on a beach walk on Short Sands, and then a walk along the coast. Do not forget your camera, fishing pole, and food for a picnic. For an adventure, you can join a group to go scuba diving for treasure along the lighthouse.
Day Trips
Take a short road trip up the coast, experiencing all the charm of the local townships: Ogunquit, Wells, Kennebunkport, Saco, Old Orchard Beach, Cape Elizabeth, and spend the day in Portland, Maine. Want to see leaves change colors in the fall, a drive near Moosehead Lake is amazing. Go on a ghost adventure in York Beach. Do not limit yourself. Maine is one large natural theme park for families.
