"When summertime's here and the skies are clear and you wonder where to go...
And long for the clime of the wintertime with all its ice and snow...just take a run over to dear old York Beach where the wild waves are sighing for you...."

A Maine stay for generations
The Union Bluff Hotel has been keeping a watchful eye over the shores of Short Sands Beach since 1868. Back then, guests arrived by horse drawn carriage and steam train with their trunks packed for a month long stay. The feeling of the Bluff's old-world charm remains just as strong today. Learn more about our rich history, fantastic lodging and delicious food.
A Little Bit of History...
The recent storm surge uncovered a bit of history at Short Sands Beach. This 51-foot long ship is believed to be a late colonial or early post-colonial single-masted sloop dating between 1750-1850. Such vessels were common along Maine's coast and were used for fishing cod and hauling cargo. This shipwreck is among 1595 known shipwrecks along Maine's coast. The last time this ship appeared in the sand was after the Patriot's Day storm in 2007. To read more information about this bit of our history check out the following link:
