York Beach house description

Seagulls Nest is a family friendly home in a quiet residential neighborhood. Located at the beginning of the Nubble, it is just minutes to Long and Short Sands beaches. Park the cars and put the keys away! There is a master bedroom and a full bath on the 1st floor, along with a large family room, eat-in kitchen and screened 3 season porch. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 3/4 bathrooms on the 2nd floor. The house is spotless, and offers all the conveniences and amenities a large or extended family needs to enjoy a memorable vacation.

Start your day with a run on the beach or early morning coffee in the screened 3 season porch. Less than a 10 minute walk to either Short Sands or Long Sands beaches, enjoy all the activities and excitement both beach areas offer including an expanded playground at Short Sands your little ones will love. Spend the day at the York Wild Kingdom amusement park and zoo. Play croquet or horeshoes with your family in the private, spacious back yard. Take advantage of the eat-in kitchen, grill and large picnic table or walk to area restaurants.

In the evenings, take the family for a walk to the bandstand to enjoy live music, the arcade, watch salt water taffy being made or get ice-cream at the Golden Rod, or shop in the quaint village. Play a game in the screened porch. Watch a ball game or movie in the large family room.

If you want to venture out, Stonewall Kitchen, Mount Agamenticus, Ogunquit Playhouse, Perkins Cove, Marginal Way, Kittery Outlet Mall, Kennebunkport and historic Portsmouth, NH are all close by. Boston and Portland are less than 90 minutes away by car or commuter bus. Those tempted by golf, hiking or antiquing will find plenty to entice them.

Whether you are looking to relax or play, Seagulls Nest will help your family re-unite and re-charge.

Linens can be provided for an additional fee. Linens include bath towels, beach towels, sheets, bath mat and dish towels.

Owner info

About the owner: We have been visiting the York Beach area for years and waiting to find just the right house to enjoy with our family. We finally found it in our 'Seagulls Nest'.

Why the Owner Chose York Beach:
York is a quaint beach community within 90 minutes of Boston, Manchester, NH and Portland, ME. It has 3 well maintained beaches, a world famous lighthouse, cliff walk overlooking the ocean, museums, historical sites, shopping, dining and several in-town recreational options. While there is plenty to see and do, York is not over-developed or congested.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house has become a gathering place for our extended family and friends. We can walk to either Long or Short Sands beaches in less than 10 minutes. Our family really enjoys the screened 3 season porch and playing in the large private backyard. It’s large enough so we can play and hang out together when we want to, but also provides us privacy and the flexibility to do our own thing. As we get older, we wanted a house that offers '1st floor' living. The floor plan eliminates the need to deal with stairs if we don't want to.
