York Harbor cottage description

Quaint 'fisherman's cottage' in wonderful York Harbor. Easy stroll to gorgeous beach, the inner harbor, spectacular ocean cliff walk, nature trails along scenic York river. Walk to fine restaurants. Short drive to Long Sands beach and local attractions. Queen-size bed in master BR; 2 twins in second BR; 1 twin in third BR. Fully equipped kitchen with place settings for six. All bedding provided. Free wireless internet and cable TV.


Harbor Beach declared 'local treasure'!! Down East Magazine listed Harbor Beach as a 'local treasure,' and one of a dozen 'hidden beaches' in the state of Maine. The magazine highlights the secret pleasures of this special place and correctly notes that 'there's a lot to gawk at, and a lot to do.' The only problem is the lack of parking, says Down East, but it won't be a problem for you, since it is only a few minutes walk to this beautiful, 'hidden' spot from your private cottage!! This is the beach that the locals use. It is not unusual to have the beach entirely to yourself for an early morning walk with coffee or a late evening stroll.

              Car: Recommended

              Located on the rocky coast of beautiful southern Maine, next to historic York Village. Close to ocean, river, woods and the hiking trails of Mount Agamenticus. Walk to quiet Harbor Beach or take a short ride to visit the attractions of Long Sands Beach and the world-famous Cape Neddick Nubble light house. Fifteen minutes to Kittery Mall outlet shops and Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1958

              About the owner: My family purchased this property in 1958. Kim and I took over in 2007. Fisherman's Cottage is the only property that we rent. It's a true 'Mom & Pop' business. The cottage is immediately adjacent to our home, so we have a vested interest in keeping the property in great shape. We can often be of immediate assistance if required. We are your neighbors as well as being the owners!

              Why the Owner Chose York Harbor:
              We love York Harbor and southern Maine. We enjoy sharing all that this area has to offer with our guests. You won't find a better deal near the ocean.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Off the main road, but still an easy stroll to beach, river, restaurants. Perfect for couples or families with small children.
