About the Property

3 bedrooms, 1bath, sleeps 5

Quaint, refurbished 19-th century cottage in spectacular York Harbor. Easy stroll to gorgeous beach, the inner harbor, ocean cliff walk, nature trails along scenic York river. Walk to fine restaurants. Short drive to Long Sands beach and local attractions. Queen-size bed in master BR; 2 twins in second BR; 1 twin in third BR. Well equipped kitchen with place settings for six. All bedding provided. Free wireless internet and cable TV. No cleaning fee or other hidden fees.

Down East Magazine listed Harbor Beach as a 'local treasure', highlighting the secret pleasures of this special place, and correctly noting that 'there's a lot to gawk at, and a lot to do.' This gem of a beach is only a few minutes walk from your private cottage!! This is the beach that the locals use. It is not unusual to have the beach entirely to yourself for an early morning walk with coffee or a late evening stroll.

Located on the rocky coast of beautiful southern Maine, next to historic York Village. Close to ocean, river, woods and the hiking trails of Mount Agamenticus.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1958

About the owner: My family purchased this property in 1958. Kim and I took over in 2007. Fisherman's Cottage is the only property that we rent. It's a true 'Mom & Pop' business. The cottage is immediately adjacent to our home, so we have a vested interest in keeping the property in great shape. We can often be of immediate assistance if required. We are your neighbors as well as being the owners!

Why the Owner Chose York Harbor, York, ME, USA:
We love York Harbor and southern Maine. We live here year 'round and we enjoy sharing all that this area has to offer with our guests.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Quiet, off the main road, but still an easy stroll to beach, river, restaurants. Perfect for couples or families with small children.
