Enjoy relaxing to the view and sound of the ocean with the surf crashing onto the rocks below you. There are 8 window boxes and a flower garden with four beaches only 1/2 mile away (15-20 minute walk). Enjoy fishing and swimming right in front of the house. Come and view coastal Maine in a fully restored, custom designed and decorated Victorian New England home.

This was the eighth year that my husband and I, our four kids, and my parents stayed at the Ocean Rose. The home is absolutely gorgeous, very charming with its older-home details and yet very modern with a modern kitchen & appliances, modern bathrooms, etc.. A favorite spot is the screened porch, where we eat all our meals overlooking the ocean. It is fun for the kids to climb around down on the rocks too. There is plenty of room for our family in this home and the kids adore the attic bedrooms (three twin beds total in two adjacent rooms), where you can lie under the eaves & hear the ocean waves. The bedding is excellent, very soft sheets & excellent pillows, always important! I can't say enough about the house, which is obvious since we're on year eight. There is not much yard to play in, however, when in York Beach there is so much to do that it has not been a problem for us. The only fault of the home is that it is walking distance to Brown's Ice Cream. This has not helped anyone's waistline! :) Highly recommend this home.
