Great house

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect. Very big, and only a short walk to the beach. However, there was the major inconvenience of the house not supplying bed sheets or towels. This night be a small issue for some people, however I was traveling by plane with 3 small children. Packing towels and sheets for a week long beach trip was no small task! Additionally, we had to purchase king size sheets for this trip (as two beds were king sized, and we didn't have that size sheet). This maybe less of an issue for some families, but definitely something to keep in mind when choosing a house. That being said, the house would definitely have been five stars without that!

wonderful family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our annual family escape. It was spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was perfect for family members to share in preparing meals. Beach access was within walking distance or a short drive. With a family that enjoys physical exercise there were lots of places to walk or run. Very clean and tastefully decorated I would recommend to anyone looking for comfort as well as above average style.

Superior Guest House to fit 12 for any occasion!

  • 5 of 5

We hosted a birthday party celebration week having friends and family come and stay - the house is ideal and perfectly setup! As the description states it can hold 12 people - the owners did a fantastic job of designing the space and bedrooms, everyone was able to fit and be comfortable; there is plenty of room so people were not on top of each other and everyone was very impressed with the house.

This rental included a lot of great amenities, often times other rentals you have to bring pots/pans/bedding/towels but the owners provided everything and then some! We thoroughly enjoyed boiled lobster in the lobster pot (there's a great place down the road to get it fresh and cheap!) and there were tons of platters and bowls to lay out food for many guests and we never ran out of clean silverware and plates - they really outfitted the place well!

The other huge plus is the location - people who are familiar with York know York Beach Long and short Sands beach - while it's about a mile away you have to pay to park and deal with traffic during peak season - but this rental house location could not be more perfect! You can take a 6 min walk from the house and arrive at a public beach that is quiet and easy and beautiful - once we showed the guests where it was, everyone could do their own thing and meet up so it was very convenient and easy to coordinate. You know how it is wrangling 8+ people to get packed, in the car and go to the beach; you never leave on time, people are waiting for the stragglers and you bring everything but the kitchen sink - with the beach so nearby - everyone could go at their own choosing and it's an easy walk back to the house - huge bonus there!!

Finally the other plus, the owners were super sweet and gracious and helpful and attentive to any questions we had; I had looked at other rentals and those owners were not as courteous or friendly -it makes a difference!

While we rented this in the summer, hands down this house would be ideal for any occasion - 5 stars all the way!! thank you again!! :)

York, England

Ideal September Venue

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully presented rental with modern fittings and, in fact, everything you need for a quiet vacation. Even a late date change was readily accommodated. The location above York Harbor was ideal, in walking distance of our wedding venue (although we chose to drive!). Just walking around the area, we encountered friendly and helpful locals eager to describe the history of their town. There are lots of places to stretch your legs in coastal walks, just a short drive away. York Harbor, perhaps in contrast to nearby York Beach, was particularly peaceful and this spacious accommodation allowed the whole (adult) family to stretch out and enjoy the beautiful late summer weather. The large kitchen and barbecue accommodated several cooks, and our extended family barbecue was a big success. Local amenities were excellent (once we found the supermarket whose turn sign was hidden behind a garage sign and tree). The view (and food) in the York Harbor Inn is highly recommended.

The only problem we encountered was in guiding late arrivals to the house after dark.

Party of 10

  • 5 of 5

Nice spacious home with plenty of rooms for our party of 10. Jennifer & Eric were very prompt with their reply to any questions. Close to several restaurants, grocery store, vegetable stands, and the beach. Very quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this rental to anyone.

Vacation/wedding bliss

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home to house the wedding party of my daughter and her fiance for their wedding weekend. It was a perfect fit....the rooms are so comfortable, anything and everything you could possibly desire is here! Huge kitchen, wonderful common areas and a large back yard...neat, tidy and so welcoming. My highest recommendation is cheerfully given....thank you for an unforgettable experience!

Carriage Barn is a 5 plus bedroom vacation home nestled in the middle of scenic York Harbor, Maine. Located just outside of the Stage Neck Harbor and the Harbor Beach. The house sleeps 12 very comfortably. Carriage Barn offers the widest variety of options for a vacation in this ocean side community. Take a few minute walk -- or a one minute drive -- to the well-protected Harbor Beach, a perfect spot for young and old alike, or to York River walk, which features the famed 'Wiggly Bridge' and its adjacent nature preserve. Stroll down to watch the sailboats docked off the Agamenticus yacht club and to buy your fresh lobster for the evening's feast. Rent a Kayak or book a fishing excursion there as well. Plenty of excellent restaurants are within walking distance including the Stage Neck Inn, the York Harbor Inn, and Foster's Clambake.

If you don't mind a ten minute drive, all the amenities of York are available to you. Head out to Nubble Light House, perhaps the most photographed light house in the US, and then have a sumptuous seafood feast at Fox's Lobster House*. Short Sands Beach and Long Sands Beach offer huge expanses of beachfront and great surfing. Downtown York, with its multitude of shop fronts, arcades, and the candy and taffy of 'Goldrenrod Kisses'* is also about a ten minute drive. The York amusement park and zoo* are also right in downtown.

York Harbor is a golfer's paradise. Local public courses 'The Ledges' (15 minutes) and 'The Links at Outlook' (25 minutes) are great tracks. Semi private courses like Cape Neddick Country Club and Portsmouth Country Club (the back 9 is the nearest thing to a South Carolina low country course in the Northeast) have tee times for the public after 11:00 a.m.

Interested in spending a day at the spa? The Cliff House and Stage Neck Inn have beautiful spas with many different spa packages available. You can indulge in the popular Spa manicure/pedicure, very rejuvenating! They also offer various massages that will surely put you in a relaxed state of body and mind.

Of course, no trip to York would be complete without a day (or more!) of shopping at the Kittery outlets. The Kittery Trading Post is a MUST-SEE.

If you enjoy treasure hunting, as we do, you will be excited to experience the antique auctions offered in York and it's surrounding towns.

You can take a 20 minute drive up to Ogunquit and take a whale watching tour or half day fishing trip. If you enjoy taking in a play, the Ogunquit Playhouse offers very entertaining theatre.

Take a scenic 15 minute drive up Shore Road to Perkins Cove. You can shop, eat and experience the Cliff Walk. This walk takes you along the ocean and you can enjoy breathtaking views with every step.

Downtown Portsmouth, NH is a 15 minute drive. Excellent fine dining, shopping, and sightseeing abound. You must treat yourself to the fresh catches of the day at Jumpin' Jay's fish cafe or to the unique organic pizzas of Flatbread Pizza Co.
