Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
Delightful year-round cottage on the 'Nubble' in York, Maine. Perfectly situated in a friendly and safe neighborhood - far enough from the waterfront hustle and bustle but close enough to hear the ocean roaring and feel the cooling breezes. A perfect getaway for families.

Any extras can spill out onto the adjacent deck which gets the morning sun. Large and comfortable living area. Downstairs back bedroom is great for kids...sleeps three in beds plus has a pull-out sofa bed. Additional first-floor bedroom with double bed and large upstairs master bedroom with a king-size bed. Large bathroom with tub/shower, washer/dryer and great over-sized outdoor shower area.
Two-minute stroll to Maine's most-famed Nubble Lighthouse; One-mile walk to beautiful Long Sands Beach. Minutes from area attractions including York Wild Animal Kingdom (just down the road), Water Country (20 minutes away), ' Kittery Outlet shopping (15 minutes), picturesque seaside villages of Ogunquit and Wells and fantastic antiquing possibilities and fall adventures.
Enjoy all that coastal Maine has to offer...Fill your days with a multitude of activities from fall foliage expeditions to lobstering trips, to whale watching, championship golf, and great shopping or foliage expeditions. Or, head to the beach for some sun, surf and shelling. When the day is through, relax on deck with a cool libation and watch the kids play a round of badminton or head to one of the area's great restaurants. It's up to you.

About Chris Haley
Jim and I purchased the cottage when our youngest child was just a toddler. We had fallen in love with York and wanted to make it our summer home. We did that for many years while the kids (3) were growing. When our oldest entered high school, getting to Maine for an extended stay became more difficult. We started renting. Many of our "renters" became friends that returned year-to-year. They too had young families and appreciated all that York had to offer.
Chris Haley purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Chris Haley chose York Beach
We fell in love with this cottage right away - it had everything we were looking for! It was simple and comfortable, on a great quiet street with a nice backyard and kitchen perfect for entertaining!

Stunning Maine Vacation
This home is not only well appointed, but well located with a short walk to gorgeous Long Sands Beach & historic Nubble Light House. It truly felt like more than a rental house, our home-away- from home . Tasteful and immaculate furnishings & amenities, big yard and wonderful deck which was another great plus. Perfect location to take in all that is within walking distance but also to easily explore the the many things to see and do in the area and beyond. The owners were incredibly responsive and caring, we couldn't ask for a nicer family vacation. Thank you!
Hidden Gem near the Ocean
This is a cottage that feels like a second home in such a beautiful area of Maine. I love the location, the proximity to the ocean and the overall distribution of the space, because everyone can be doing their own thing without being on top of each other. My favorite spot in the whole house is the outdoor shower and the outside deck. The house is well kept, impeccable conditions and the nearby activities, attractions and restaurants provide multiple options for all tastes. I appreciate the fact this cottage provides all you will need to have a fun and relaxing time at the beach. Enjoy!
Perfect York Cottage
York Beach is a family favorite vacation spot of ours. The area is very family friendly and there's always something to do. However, over the years our family has grown and we were in need of a larger cottage. Thankfully we found this gem! The owner Chris was very nice and accommodating. She was available even during the week when our toddler had a miner mishap! She was very understanding and made us feel so much better, even insisting we come back again! The cottage was everything we had hoped for and more. Hoping to return very soon! Thanks Chris and family for the great time!
Wonderful long weekend!
This is the most perfect little cottage!
Just a short walk to Nubble light and in a sweet neighborhood.
The house is fully equipped and very tastefully decorated. We love to cook and
Found everything that we needed to create delicious meals.
We can,t wait to return!
Worth Coming Back To!
We stayed at this cottage for our 20th anniversary back in 2006 and with only a couple of exceptions due to family emergencies we have come back for our anniversary ever since. This year we are hoping to spend our 28th anniversary at the cottage!
Located a block and a half from the famous Nubble Point Light House and only minutes from either long or short sands beaches this is the PERFECT cottage for a getaway or week's vacation.
Jim and Chris have been awesome hosts and have treated us very, very well over the years. Give the cottage a try, you won't be disappointed!
Just doesn't get any better...
This is the second time we have rented this vacation home & is it far above a cottage. Large, airy & spacious so if you do catch a rainy day you do not feel confined. Just the kitchen and dinning area alone is twice the size of a motel room (hint: grab the back kids bedroom first, you'll see why). The full time neighbors are fantastic, one baked us muffins and another offer us a car when I had a problem with mine. A short walk to Nubble Light, Foxes restaurant and Browns ice cream. 3-5 minute drive to Long & Short Sand beach or the village (hint: take "rolls" of quarters for the meters as parking tickets are and industry there), 15 minutes to Kittery Outlets. We have vacationed in Maine for 28 years, 23 @ York Beach as it is very family friendly and safe. The stays at Chris's home; well "it just doesn't get any better".
