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 15-20 minute walk to Long Sands Beach. Long Sands also has metered parking. York Beach (Short Sands) is 2 1/2 miles away with more metered parking.
For your morning walk, The “Cliff Path” is just steps away from our home and links up to the “Fisherman’s Walk”.

Agamenticus is only a 15 minute drive and encompasses 30,000 acres of beautiful hiking and recreation.
