About the Property
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
This friendly, comfortable Maine cottage with knotty pine paneling has been recently tastefully and carefully updated.
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.
We have a full sized washer and dryer new in 2015!
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, outdoor chairs and table. 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.
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.
Please leave the cottage as your found it when you leave, a cleaning fee is not included. Please supply your own linens, towels, beach towels. We come to the cottage in between every guest, to make sure every thing is ready for your arrival.
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!!
Please note, on rare occasion we accept a pet on a limited basis. If you have allergies to pets, please find other accommodations.
We have cable TV and high speed internet. Keywords: Tastefully Updated Cottage Near the Beach

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 a flight attendant. I love the cottage as our whole family does! We find York so interesting and has 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.
