About the Property

2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, outdoor hot water shower, sleeps 4

Quintessential Southern Maine cottage in the center of Cape Neddick harbor with a BOLD view of two lighthouses. Great frontage and private location less than 100 feet from the ocean. Two bedrooms downstairs. Ceiling fans in all downstairs rooms. Fall asleep listening to the sound of the ocean less than 100 feet away at high tide. Fireplace, TV, VCR, high speed cable internet, DVD, washer and dryer. Deck has round table with umbrella. Large parking lot in back. During low tides children will have fun exploring the numerous tidal pools. A local beach is only 200 yards away. THE TOWN OF YORK BEACH AND SURROUNDING LARGE PUBLIC BEACHES ARE LESS THAN A MILE AWAY. Many fine restaurants in the area including one a short walk across the street. Canoe available for use. This cottage offers the best ocean view in Maine!


Beach locations: There is a small private beach several hundred yards away on the north side of the cottage. The campground behind the cottage uses this beach. 1/2 mile away is the center of York Beach and Short Sands Beach. The gorgeous one and a half mile long Long Sands Beach is only 1.5 miles away. All these beaches are within walking distance or metered parking is available at the later two.


Stores: There is a large Hannefords food store with great selection only 4 miles south on route 1. A little further along are the Kittery Outlets - virtually all name brands at discounted prices. Numerous fine restaurants are within a short drive. These include famous hamburg joints to really upscale places like the Cliff House. I keep a number of menus of places I recommend in a folder in the cottage. The center of York Beach is only a half mile away and has a Funarama, Animal Forest Park, The famous Golden Rod restaurant and candy store. There is also a candlepin bowling alley in town. On the other side of long sands Beach you will find all the town offices along with a Public library. There are free tennis courts open to the public at the high school. There is a private golf course only 2 miles north of the cottage. York Harbor and Ogunquit are about 5 miles away. Deep sea fishing and ocean cruises can be lined up at either place.

History: This cottage was purchased by my great grandfather back in the 1930's. It has been a family treasure ever since. My family and I use it when it is not rented out. It is the most beautiful spot in Maine! Most other coastal property has been renovated with large houses and mansions since the price of the property is so very expensive. This is one of the few small original cottages left in the area. It has all the charm! Notice from the coastal view that it has a comparatively large frontage affording a lot of privacy. The tidal pools in front are a joy to anyone under 12 years old - and an equal joy for you to share with the youngster! We hope that you enjoy your stay at this property as much as we do.
