My husband and I bought the house with the intention of enjoying Maine more in our retirement years and to share with friends and family along the way.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2000
We love the ocean views, the scenic walks along the shore, being surrounded with quaint, turn of the century homes and the local food and sundries that we can walk to.
Our first family vacation with both kids, their spouses, and our grandkids. The house was roomy (for 8 of us) and perfectly outfitted from sheets and towels, to pots and pans, and beach chairs. The view is unparalleled and it would have been easy to sit in the rocker and look at the ocean for 2 weeks. It is a quick walk to Short Sands Beach, a small family beach, and the beach shops and restaurants. It is also close to the Nubble Lighthouse. May I recommend taking a thermos of coffee and enjoying sunrise at the lighthouse?
I guess the best way I can end this is that my full family is coming back next year.
This was our second time renting this wonderful house. The light and airiness of the whole place make even the cloudiest days bright. And, as a cook, the kitchen can't be beat. Standing at the professional stove and looking out over the Atlantic is a joy.
We found the house immaculately clean and well maintained. And the ability to walk in five minutes to the Short Sands beach or the Nubble Lighthouse is a big plus. You're away from the traffic and noise and can listen only to the surf crashing outside the windows and then head off for the fun the rest of York offers.
Note: Although the house has five bedrooms there is only room for 2 cars to park in the driveway.
Looking forward to our next time renting on Ocean Avenue Extension!
My Family and I really enjoyed our stay. The location and its view are incredible. Well worth the money. We are saving up to return again!
We loved our stay at this house. Our family continues to talk about our week there as a slice of heaven. Although the house isn't directly on a beach, the water views outside the dining and living room give you the feel that you're out at sea. It was wonderful.
This is the most wonderful Maine vacation home! Everything you could possible want is in this house. We loved the view and spent many hours in the rocking chairs. The house was very clean and the kitchen provided everything needed for
cooking and serving meals, although we also took advantage of the many local restaurants. I love the town of Portsmouth and visited Strawberry Banke, went on the Isle of Shoals harbor cruise and did lots of shopping. It is worth your while to have lunch at Stonewall Kitchen. We also enjoyed the antique shops on Rt 1 and the Kittery Outlets.We have already booked the house for next year and look forward to doing a whale watch out of Portland.
The owner is the best to work with and we would highly recommend this property!
This house has great space for a group of people. We used it for a family reunion and the main level with kitchen, dining and sitting rooms was fabulous - comfortable and has a great view. The bedrooms are a little small but the beds were very comfortable and we spent most of our time on the main level anyway.
Antiques, historic places, local art, outlet shopping, quaint shops, fine food, taffy, fudge, ice cream, arcade, zoo, walk the cliff paths, the Nubble Lighthouse and hiking or biking Mt. Agamenticus.
