Planning to join us for a class in Maine?
We have some close freinds who own some of the best accomodatations in the area, most of which have an amazing ocean view right from their doorstep. Check them out below and let us know what other information we can provide.
ON LONG SANDS BEACH...
STONE'S THROW INN & BAR/RESTAURANT
As the name implies, Stone's Throw is pretty much spitting distance from the high tide line overlooking about a mile of Long Sands beach break that's a regular destination for us. The inn has sixteen quaint rooms each with large decks and a view of the ocean. Very relaxing and great for checking surf without lifting your head from the pillow. The downstairs bar and restaurant serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is a easy-going and comfy place to call home during your time at Grain, with quick access to the beach and waves, and spectacular views of the sunrise.

York Beach Surf Club
The York Beach Surf Club is a brand new resort hotel looking over the Atlantic at the south end of Long Sands Beach. Run by the legendary local surfer and good freind Sonny Perkins and his son, this hotel is a throwback to the 1960's surfing scene here in Maine. Sonny was one of the first to surf the cold water waves here in Maine back before wetsuits were a thing. The Surf Club features beautiful grounds, motel rooms and suites, an on-site pool, food and beverage options, and is a short walk to a local lobster restaurant. If you see Sonny, tell him we sent you.

The Sea Latch Motel
Owned by the same family that owns the York Beach Surf Club, The Sea Latch Inn is about the closest motel to our shop, less then a mile away and right on Long Sands Beach. With several restaurants within walking distance, this may be the most convenient place to stay if your looking to save a few bucks by not renting a car.

CAMPING CLOSE BY
Camping more your style? There are a few campgrounds (RV and Tent sites) all within a short walk or bike ride to our shop.
- Check out Libbys Oceanside Camp which is right on Long Sands Beach. Mark, who runs the place, took a class with us in 2021 and would love to share his experiences.
- Practically accross the street from our shop is Flaggs RV Resort.
- A few miles away on Route One (convenient for larger RV's) is the quieter more wooded Dixons Campground.
- Down the road a bit, a bit more rustic but still on the water is the Cape Neddick Oceanside Campground.
