Property description

We are booking fast for summer 2015! Please check the calendar, and please note we rent weekly in season! Currently available are 2 weeks in June and 18-25th July!! Also, spring and fall is available! This friendly, 3 season, Maine cottage with knotty pine paneling has been tastefully and carefully updated. All new kitchen and windows from 2012.
Remember us for your Fall get away, whether for enjoying fall foliage, antiquing, shopping in Kittery. 2 bedrooms, one with Queen bed, closet and air conditioner, the second bedroom has 2 twin beds on the porch. We have travel pack and play, and booster seat. Kitchen has Refrigerator/Freezer, Stove/Oven, and eat in Dining area. Bathroom with Tub/shower. Living room with 2 couches, cable TV and sky light. Combination locks on the doors, no keys to lose! Outside there are 2 parking places, Charcoal BBQ, outdoor chairs and table, Chairs to sit outside and enjoy the quiet family neighborhood. The cottage is a 'stone's throw' to a rocky beach for tide pooling, star gazing, and views of Shorts Sands Beach! Hear the waves from the cottage! A short walk the other way is another small tidal beach in the bay, scramble over the rocks to get there.
Popular Short Sands Beach is a pleasant 1/2 mile walk on a tree-lined side street. Shops, restaurants (including great local seafood). You'll find York's Wild Kingdom, The Goldenrod (world famous for salt water taffy made the same way 100 years), Funarama with games including skee ball, a wonderful beach side playground and the Gazebo for summer concerts. Walk on another 20 minutes to Brown's Ice Cream and on to the Nubble Lighthouse, enjoying the rocky Maine coastline, and fabulous ocean views. Long Sands beach is another little walk or drive away.

Short drives open a world of sightseeing, shopping, hiking, boating, etc. Portland is 30 minutes away with ferries to the Maine islands; driving up or down the coast leads you to outlet shopping at Freeport, one hour away, or Kittery, 15 minutes away; a burst of driving to the heart of the New Hampshire White Mountains for a days junket is one and one-half hours away.
We come to the cottage in between every guest, to make sure every thing is ready for your arrival. We provide linens and cleaning at the end of your stay. We also do not charge the 7% Maine tax.
The cottage has been in our family for 40 years, we love it and hope you will love it too and return year after year like some of our guests do!!
We have cable TV and high speed internet!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1972

About the owner: Gary's family picked family oriented York for their vacation spot from their home in Keene. I'm Gary's wife, Marion, I'm from Bermuda, and I'm a flight attendant. I love the cottage as our whole family does! We find York so interesting and kept the old fashioned family oriented way, it is fascinating and charming. A great place to vacation year after year. We love it there. we just live 30 minutes away.

Why the Owner Chose York Beach:
Family friendly, close to beaches. Several miles from Highway, but easy to find. York is a year round town, there are reasons to come here any time of the year!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This family friendly area, suitable for all ages. The beach, town, playground. Areas to explore, the White Mountains a few hours beautiful drive away. Shopping outlets in Kittery and Freeport. The Maine coast with spectacular scenery. Fall Foliage and the coast line are a wonderful combination for the walker, painter, photographer, or just want to see what it's all about!
