York Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

We are booking fast for summer 2013! Please check the calendar, and please note we rent weekly in season and off season! Currently available are the 4 weeks of June and 24-31 August. This friendly, 3 season, Maine cottage with some knotty pine paneling has been tastefully and carefully updated. All new kitchen and windows for 2012!

Remember us for your Fall get away, whether for enjoying fall foliage, antiquing, shopping in Kittery. 2 bedrooms, one with Queen bed, closet and air conditioner, the second bedroom has 2 twin beds on the porch, (kids love it!) Kitchen has Refrigerator/Freezer, Stove/Oven, and eat in Dining area. Bathroom with Tub/shower. Living room with 2 couches, cable TV and sky light. Combination locks on the doors, no keys to lose! Outside there are 2 parking places, Charcoal BBQ, Picnic table, Chairs to sit outside and enjoy the quiet family neighborhood. The cottage is a 'stone's throw' to a rocky beach for tide pooling, star gazing, and views of Shorts Sands Beach! Hear the waves from the cottage! A short walk the other way is another small tidal beach in the bay, scramble over the rocks to get there.

Popular Short Sands Beach is a pleasant 1/2 mile walk on a tree-lined side street. Shops, restaurants (including great local seafood). You'll find York's Wild Kingdom, The Goldenrod (world famous for salt water taffy made the same way for over 50 years), Funarama with games including skee ball, a wonderful beach side playground and the Gazebo for summer concerts. Walk on another 20 minutes to Brown's Ice Cream and on to the Nubble Lighthouse, enjoying the rocky Maine coastline, and fabulous ocean views. Long Sands beach is another little walk or drive away.

Short drives open a world of sightseeing, shopping, hiking, boating, etc. Portland is 30 minutes away with ferries to the Maine islands; driving up or down the coast leads you to outlet shopping at Freeport, one hour away, or Kittery, 15 minutes away; a burst of driving to the heart of the New Hampshire White Mountains for a days junket is one and one-half hours away.

We come to the cottage in between every guest, to make sure every thing is ready for your arrival. NEW for 2013, linens are included as is cleaning at the end of your stay. We also do not charge the 7% Maine tax.

The cottage has been in our family for 40 years, we love it and hope you will love it too and return year after year like some of our guests do!!

We have cable TV and high speed internet!

About The Owner

Gary's family picked family oriented York for their vacation spot from their home in Keene. I'm Gary's wife, Marion, I'm from Bermuda, and I'm a flight attendant. I love the cottage as our whole family does! We find York so interesting and kept the old fashioned family oriented way, it is fascinating and charming. A great place to vacation year after year. We love it there. we just live 30 minutes away.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1972

Why The Owner chose York Beach

Family friendly, close to beaches. Several miles from Highway, but easy to find. York is a year round town, there are reasons to come here any time of the year!

What makes this cottage unique

This family friendly area, suitable for all ages. The beach, town, playground. Areas to explore, the White Mountains a few hours beautiful drive away. Shopping outlets in Kittery and Freeport. The Maine coast with spectacular scenery. Fall Foliage and the coast line are a wonderful combination for the walker, painter, photographer, or just want to see what it's all about!

the beautiful southern coast of Maine

  • 5 of 5
We were able to explore many sand beaches (and enjoy picnics prepared in the nicely appointed kitchen at the cottage), light houses, and historic landmarks, including military forts, within easy driving distance of Memories Cottage every day AND still have time to enjoy the scenes of surfers, boogie boarders, and joyous dogs and their humans romping on the beach at Long Sands. Sunsets at near by Nubble Light were the perfect way to end the days before returning to the comfort of the cottage. There were sufficient reasonably priced restaurants nearby when we wanted to eat out and a market that carried a "fish chowder" selection of fish the night I wanted to make my annual Maine chowder and corn muffins. The cottage neighborhood was neat, quiet, and respectful of the privacy of all. Memories cottage provided us with more than we expected in the way of amenity's and comfort and made our 30th year of traveling and staying on the Maine coast a most excellent memory

Fabulous cottage and wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5
Hear the sound of the buoy clanging and the waves rolling in, smell the salt air mingled with wonderful fragrant flowers while you relax in this charming, comfortable cottage. The owners, Marion and Gary, make your stay memorable with their thoughtful touches ... beach chairs, boogie boards, beach umbrella, a small grill and a readily appointed kitchen help to make your stay enjoyable. You are minutes away from downtown York Beach with it's quaint shopping, historic Goldenrod Kisses restaurant/candy shop and Short Sands Beach. Travel just a tad further south and you come upon the lovely Cape Neddick lighthouse, beautiful Long Sands Beach and then the historic area of York, Maine. Travel a bit further down picturesque Route 1A and you reach terrific outlet shopping in Kittery, Maine and then more fabulous history and shopping in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. If you travel North on Route 1A instead, you will pass through Ogonquit and Wells before reaching gorgeous Kennebunk and Kennebunkport, Maine where shopping and restaurants abound, but don't stop there ... travel along the coast through Old Orchard Beach, Scarborough and then see the historic Portland Head lighthouse in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. Go a bit further and spend the day in Portland, Maine for more shopping, history and restaurants. This cottage is close to so much, yet still a quiet and peaceful retreat from the world. We have stayed here often over the past 10+ years and have loved every visit. The only downside is having to leave!

A perfect escape to the beach!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is very comfortable, warm, and inviting. We only stayed a couple of days but felt right at home and hope to return next year as well for a longer stay. When we arrived, the cottage was immaculate and we were greeted with a personal note from the owners. It is located in a quiet and quaint residential neighborhood yet just close enough to all of the local attractions. A perfect combination for a beach vacation!

We stayed a week and enjoyed every second! The owners, Marion and Gary were gracious and caring and had completed some marvelous upgrades just before our arrival. My family felt as though we had been living here forever. the owners were just a phone call away and responded quickly when a smoke alarm battery failed. The property and cottage were immaculate and we would not hesitate to recommend to anyone..
