Gaze at the iconic shores of Southern Maine at this delightful two-bedroom cottage, a stunningly situated oceanfront home with a rooftop terrace, expansive ocean and lighthouse views, and an unbeatable location within walking distance of York's most beloved beaches.
Quaint and picturesque, this two-level home sits right on the coast of Cape Neddick at the entrance to Sohier Park and Nubble Point. You'll be just across the water from the Nubble Light, one mile from Long Sands Beach to the south and Short Sands Beach to the north, and only four miles east of central York.
Stylishly decorated and well-equipped for couples and small families, the living space is bright, open, and comfortable. Come home from a day on the sand to read a novel on the love seat, cool off in the window unit air conditioning, set up a board game by the gas fireplace, or use the WiFi to keep track of the tides.
Walk a few steps down the road to sample the local catch at Fox's Lobster House, or prepare your own seafood in the beautiful kitchen. This lovely space features stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and bonus culinary tools that include a blender, a dishwasher, and a stock pot for lobsters and steamers fresh from the ocean.
Gather the provided beach chairs and toys and spend your mornings in the cool ocean waves at Long Sands or Short Sands Beach. When you've had your fill of summer sunshine, you can rinse off in the outdoor shower, light the gas grill for a lunchtime barbecue, and feast on fresh haddock at the shaded patio table.
Throw your bathing suits and towels in the private washer/dryer and take an afternoon walk to glimpse the Nubble Light in beautiful Sohier Park. And there's no better place for cocktails, dessert, and spectacular sunsets than the rooftop deck overlooking the ocean (but please note that this deck is accessed by a ladder-style staircase).
With two bedrooms and one full bathroom with a stall shower, the Little Sea Star Castle will accommodate as many as four guests. The bedroom on the main floor features a queen-size bed and a window unit air conditioner, while the upstairs bedroom offers a queen-size bed, a flatscreen cable TV, and a DVD player in an open, window-lined space. Both bedrooms are outfitted with luxurious Egyptian cotton linens, and a Pack 'N Play is provided for your little ones.
Thanks to its incredible location on the shores of Cape Neddick, this home is an ideal introduction to a quintessential summer in York. Spend sunny days collecting treasures on the beach, swimming and sunbathing at Long Sands or Short Sands, and visiting the zoo animals and amusement park rides at York's Wild Kingdom one mile west.
Bring along a kayak to drop into York Harbor or spend a leisurely day driving the coast of Southern Maine. Catch a glimpse of Ogunquit Beach eight miles north, the tranquil landscapes of the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge 15 miles north, or the legendary summer escape of Kennebunkport only 19 miles north.
