York Beach spacious cottage with knotty pine throughout 4 bedrooms, dining area, living room, full bath and kitchen which includes coffee pot, lobster pot, blender, microwave - large outdoor deck for sunning and grilling - fire pit for roasting marshmallows - horseshoe pit - outdoor hot/cold shower - minutes from both long and short sand beaches with camping atmosphere (best of both worlds).
Every tenant is given contact info.No contact to us during this rental regarding issues.Property is in wooded area & raised 3 kids without incident.The layout is as listed in rental. Fans are provided for every bedroom & living area. Full bath, to code. Professionally cleaned weekley. Not sure of the reference to staying drunk, perhaps this "family" cottage is not right for you.
We had wonderful weather and a great experience at this property. We have a 17 year old and an 8 year old and this was a great location for both age groups! House was large enough for each kid to bring a cousin along for the week. Close enough for teenagers to head into town for the evening. Yard was great for the 8 year old's to play. LOVED the fire pit - don't forget to bring wood! Deck was relaxing for eating dinner out side. Highly recommend this property and the owners were easy to reach with questions.
My family and friends thoroughly enjoyed our stay last summer, so we're coming back. Our group included kids from age 10 through my 81 year old mother. The cottage is well outfitted and there was plenty of room for the eight of us. No problems at all. The walk to Long Sands is very manageable and the outdoor firepit and shower were nice amenities. We're all looking forward to this year's stay.
My family, including two children, have stayed here for the past 4 years. I have never written a review but feel inclined to after seeing the negative post. The cottage has a kitchen equipped with everything you would need. The owners are super responsive and easy to contact. The house has always been clean upon arrival (with the exception of one year - the cleaning crew arrived late and the owners were mortified and sent us out to a nice dinner, on them, while they finished cleaning). The yard is great - many evenings were spent outside on the wonderful deck. Short drive or walk to the beach. Couldn't be a better place for family!! You will definitely enjoy it if you go!
We stayed for a week this summer with 7 ppl. 5 minutes after we arrive my 5yo is running around the yard and trips and falls over a small stump sticking out of the ground in front of the house and skins his knee and hands. I'm like wtf? I managed to hack up the mostly rotted stump with a pair of fencing pliers I had in the truck and buried it so my 69 yo father in law wouldn't be the next to fall! so great start..otherwise things seemed ok but once we're settled inside you noticed things. So that father in law; he's trying to get in through the houses' side door and gets caught between the door and a beam that is the jamb to the door. he scraps the heck out of his forearm against the jamb. Excellent we've been here a half hour! He tripped trying to negotiate the step up from outside because the step is about 14" high (vs. 7" on a normal step). not exactly to code DIY. All the owner would have to do is put a small concrete pad/step on the ground outside the door and it'd be ok! Right, so, anyway, it's an 'A' frame house with 2 bdrms on 2nd flr but no ceiling fans or great venitlaion up there- read: hot. at least there are fans. Also no bathroom on the 2nd flr. speaking of bathrooms- the one downstairs is pathetically small like 6x5 maybe~ not great for bathing 2 toddlers. Also, I was not impressed with the cleanliness of the place (don't move anything or you'll be shocked) and to boot the place had ants (the small ones)- like on the kitchen counter of all places. I guess what really was difficult to take was the fact the owners have a big place next door- real nice dormered cape, landscaped with a pool and a lexus suv out front. you realize quickly where all the profit goes (hint: not into the rental). Otherwise, if you don't mind dirt and stay drunk or outside most of the time you may find the place ok. the deck was nice and the fire pit too.
