Property description

Please check the calendar, and please note we rent weekly, or monthly. We have availability in September, 2016.
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.
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 Dunne'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.
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

Car: Recommended

Two large sandy beaches near by, Short Sands, half mile and Long Sands, one mile. Tide pooling at the Rocky Beach just across the road and down a small road. Antiquing abounds from Route One in York, all the way along Route One through Ogunquit, Wells and Kennebunkport. York's Wild Kingdom is in York Beach village about half mile from the cottage. York village has the old fashioned and fun arcade for hours of enjoyment. The historic Golden Rod restaurant and candy shop, where you can watch them making salt water taffy.

Nubble Light is a good walk away, or drive and enjoy ice creams up by there at Fox's or Dunne's. Various festivals during the year in York Beach Village. Kittery Outlet Shops, just a 10 minute drive down Route One.

 

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 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.

Why the Owner Chose Cape Neddick, York, ME, USA:
Family friendly, close to beaches. Several miles from Highway, easy to find. York is a year round town, there are reasons to come here any time of the year! The beaches, antiquing, proximity to Portland, Boston, mountains, ocean, etc!

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!
