About the property

4+ Bedrooms. 3 baths. Sleeps 11.

B'Tween the Beaches - a lovely expanded Cape that sits on almost an acre of land is the perfect home away from home. It's conveniently located within walking distance of Long Sands Beach and within minutes of Short Sands, Harbor, and Cape Neddick Beaches. Several tennis courts, an outdoor track, a school playground, and the quaint Village of York are all within walking distance of this beautiful home as well.

The open concept first floor has an inviting custom kitchen with cherry cabinets, quartz counter tops, and stainless steel appliances. The large center island is the perfect gathering place for family and friends.

The kitchen opens to a welcoming fire-placed living room and an informal dining room that overlooks the deck and backyard. Retreat to the family room for more privacy as it's separate from the rest of the first floor living space and is just the right place for reading, watching TV, or or just relaxing.

The second floor has 4+ bedrooms including a large Private Master Suite with a queen-size Select Comfort Bed, full bath with double sinks, and a sliding glass door that opens to a mahogany cantilever deck. The second bedroom is spacious and has a queen-size bed; the third bedroom sleeps 3 with a trundle bed and the the cozy fourth bedroom has two twin beds. There is an additional room off the Master Suite that sleeps 2.

Enjoy coffee in the morning on the quaint farmer's porch while you watch vacationers head down the street to Long Sands Beach. After a sun-filled day at the beach, come home and relax on the deck or engage in a fun game of Bocci Ball while the children play in the large yard.

There is much to enjoy along the majestic York coastline. The Nubble Lighthouse, Wiggly Bridge, Fisherman's Walk ,and Mount Agamenticus are just a few of the sites you'll discover during your stay. We invite you to make our home yours as you explore the unique treasures of this wonderful seacoast town.

About Diane and Drew Binger

I grew up in the small town of Scotia, NY. I've had the opportunity to live in Lake George, NY, North Carolina, South Carolina, and California. Out family finally settled in York Maine in 1998. I currently work as a middle school guidance counselor in the beautiful town of Kennebunk, Maine. Both of my children work in York during the summer and attend college throughout the school year, I enjoy hiking, kayaking, walking, biking,, relaxing at the beach, and spending time with family and friends. It's an honor to be able to share our home with others so they can experience the beautiful Maine Coast in a house that makes them feel at home.

Diane and Drew Binger purchased this house in 1998

Why Diane and Drew Binger chose York Harbor

Our family purchased this property because of the location. Our children were ages 2 and 5 when we arrived in York in 1998. The house is 1/2 mile from the beach and walking distance to town and two schools, the location was perfect. The yard was equally appealing - large enough for kids to run and play and have adventured. In 2005 we added a beautiful addition that allowed us to build an incredible kitchen to accommodate our friends and extended family who often come to visit. We also took this opportunity to add a mud room, Master bedroom suite with a full bath, extend our deck and add a farmer's porch. All of these additions have truly enriched our lives throughout the years.

What makes this house unique

This house has many unique benefits. The location of the property is number one. The sidewalks lead you where ever you want to go - Long Sands Beach or the quaint town of York. The flow of the house is designed for entertaining family and friends and the kitchen provides the perfect gathering place for all to enjoy. The large deck extends the house to the outdoors and the yard is a wonderful place for children to play. The outdoor fireplace provides family and friends hours of enjoyment. In addition, the 4 plus bedrooms allow for all to sleep comfortably after hours of summer fun.

Fabulous! Great accommodations for all 9 of us spanning 3 generations. Clean and neat!

  • 5 of 5

Diane was wonderful to work with! The house was great and well suited to all our needs. The back yard was an added bonus for energetic young ones. We really enjoyed the layout of the house; the well supplied kitchen and the outdoor deck and eating area. The fire pit proved a favorite as well. Close to all 3 beaches too!!

We had a fabulous time! Many thanks, Diane!

What a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Between the Beaches. This house was perfect for us, our children and grandchildren. Three bathrooms (very helpful), and the nice big back yard, which our grandchildren enjoyed immensely; a great deck in the back for relaxing, visiting, eating, and keeping an eye on the children's play. The house was very spacious and accommodated meals and games for not just the 11 of us who stayed there, but for 20 of us (the extended family that was in the area at the same time). We were able to walk to the beach and avoid the parking problem at Long Sands. Diane very graciously helped us from start to finish. Thank you Diane, for letting our family enjoy you home.

Beautiful property, very comfortable & inviting. Very good location.

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing for 20+ years and by far, this was the most inviting property we have had the pleasure to stay at. The Owners were extremely welcoming and so gracious to provide their beautiful and well equipped home to us. The accessibility to all of the area beaches and attractions was a great bonus. We would not hesitate to recommend this property to our friends and family. Thanks.

A wonderful stay in this beautifully kept home

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautifully kept and was the perfect house for our family vacation this year in York. Diane was great to work with and was very gracious! We especially loved the large kitchen and open area, which is great for cooking and enjoying meals together. Close proximity to ocean and a large, quiet hard. There is a large deck and fire pit as well for hanging outdoors. I highly recommend the house and Diane... our family will definitely stay here again when our travel plans call for York Beach!
