About the property

This is not your typical vacation rental. This newly remodeled and divided farmhouse built in the 1600s, is a must stay if vacationing in York, (which is the second oldest town in Maine). Located in upscale York Harbor, it is one of the 10 oldest homes in York, known as the “Milbury House”. It boasts both a newly renovated kitchen and baths, but the old charm still lives on with wide plank floors and original wood beams. There are sidewalks stretching from York Village past the house, all the way to Long Sands Beach.

No hassles with beach stickers or parking here. It is an 8 minute walk to Harbor Beach and Long Sands Beach is 15-20 minutes. For your morning walk, The “Cliff Path” is just steps away and links up to the “Fisherman’s Walk”. You can walk for approximately 4 miles round-trip on the ocean and the York River, passing through Harbor Beach, York Harbor, the Wiggly Bridge and Steedman Woods. Mt. Agamenticus is only a 15 minute drive and encompasses 30,000 acres of beautiful hiking and recreation. York is a popular destination for biking with miles of picturesque roads along the ocean as well as quick access to the more challenging back country roads on the west side of I-95

Experience the rich history of York and visit the Old York museum or take a drive for ice cream to Shorts Sands or out on the Nubble and see the Nubble Lighthouse. Bring your appetite for lobstah, chowdah, scallops, fried clams, and all the culinary goodness the Maine seacoast has to offer…...

The York Harbor Inn is an 8 minute walk with views of Harbor Beach, and serves up elegant food in the Main Dining Room and pub fair in the Ship’s Cellar Pub. The Deck at Dockside on York Harbor is a must. The Stones Throw is steps away from Long Sands Beach and has an upbeat atmosphere for drinks after a day at the beach or wonderful food for breakfast, lunch or dinner The Chauncey Creek Lobster Pier in Kittery offers lobsters in the rough at picnic tables overlooking the water and is BYOB. A book, full of suggestions, of places to go and things to do will be waiting for you.

Ogunquit is our neighbor to the north and Kittery and the Kittery outlets are to the south. Boston is 60 minutes, Portland is 50 minutes.

Portsmouth, New Hampshire is a short 20 minute drive with over 170 eateries and many boutiques, shops and attractions for you to enjoy. Prescott Park Arts Festival has a summer long schedule of outdoor plays, concerts, and movies.

Fishing and sightseeing charters are abundant from Portsmouth to Kennebunkport as well as kayak tours and biking

Bring your appetite, beach chairs, bikes, kayaks, golf clubs, and your love for the coast of Maine. ENJOY YOUR STAY IN OUR SLICE OF HISTORY!

Beautiful, Convenient, Historical - It has everything!

My family loved our recent stay at this home in York Harbor! The home has historical character, yet is practical, cozy and thoughtfully decorated. It's close proximity to beaches, restaurants and historical sites make it the perfect place to explore, as well as kick back and relax. Teresa is also extremely responsive and eager to make your stay enjoyable. Highly recommend!

Beautiful Milbury House!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, clean and comfortable house, lovely and convenient location. I vacationed with my family and we had more than enough space inside and out to be very comfortable. Teresa always answered the questions on time and Greg gave us a very friendly welcome, we definitely stay here again.............My only concern is about more light in the out door grill area, is too dark there.

What a lovely house. Perfect location. My family and I had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend this property. It was a walk to the harbor beach which was nice. Also close to the village.

Lovely home, accommodating owners and beautiful area of southern Maine!

  • 5 of 5

Would thoroughly recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in or around York! The house is super cool, lots of interesting features of a home that’s over 300 years old, with all the modern amenities and coveniences you’ll need. Easy access to multiple beaches, restaurants and shops. Teresa and Greg were fantastic to work with. We had one minor issue one day with the hot water, Teresa got back to me within a few minutes and Greg had it fixed in under an hour with a nice bottle of wine in hand with his apologies. Next time we stay in the area, we’ll certainly be checking the availability of this house 1st, as we really enjoyed out stay. Thanks for having us Greg and Teresa!
