Property description

Relax in our private, romantic Cape Neddick cottage, overlooking a two-acre meadow and woodland, and comfortably close—by foot, bike, or car—to the amenities of York, Ogunquit, Kittery, and Portsmouth.

Though close to amenities, this cottage is off the beaten path on a quiet private way, near the Cape Neddick River. It offers great natural light, lovely views of the surrounding landscape... and abundant tranquility.

An open Dining area forms the cottage’s center. Its white vaulted wood ceiling and walls give the adjacent open-concept Kitchen and Living spaces an airy, relaxed feel. A gas fireplace-stove warms you up on the occasional chilly evening. A four-person Italian flip top dining table with comfortable chairs opens to accommodate eight persons when needed. The Living Room has a comfy leather sofa and flat screen TV. The Kitchen is fully furnished with stove/oven, microwave, and all necessary cooking and serving ware. The Deck, overlooking the meadow and woodland, has a dining table with chairs with umbrella. Two Bedrooms and a small Loft provide among them a king, a queen, and a double bed (all comfortable), and privacy, along with linen and towels.

Amenities nearby include beaches, kayaking, paddle boarding, canoeing, boating and sailing, whale-watching and fishing, hiking and nature centers, as well as historic and cultural activities including live music and theater. There is a rich assortment of farm-and-sea-to-table dining, both fine and casual. For a more detailed list of what you will find nearby, see, York Maine.

Our cottage provides you with comfort, quiet, and closeness to a rich slice of Southern Maine.
About us:

My wife and I are architects, reside in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and purchased our cottage in the late summer of 2014.

We have vacationed in the York area for years and found ourselves spending more time in Southern Maine. We chose our cottage in part because its location is convenient, but also because its park-like two-acre site gives us privacy and quiet in a genuinely beautiful location. We love having beaches so close, and the fact that after years of exploring, we continue to discover more here in Southern Maine.

We hope you decide to vacation with us and find our cottage as charming as we do!

James Mayeux and Gina Ford
