My entire family- 10 adults, 3 teenagers and 4 kids under 6 stayed in this beautiful home for a week. One would think 17 people under one roof would be a bit overcrowded but this was not the case. There was ample sleeping space, eating space and relaxation space. The house had everything we needed and more. There were lots of extra touches like a garden, lawn games and videos for the entire family. We walked to York Harbor Beach every day (we put the little ones in a wagon although they could handle the walk as well) and drove to York Beach or the village. Rarely did we eat out because the kitchen and house were so nice that we all enjoyed having our meals at the house, usually on the porch. The bedrooms were all quiet and those who went to bed early were not kept up by the night owls. The owners were extremely helpful, friendly and welcoming and did a great job at making the house feel like our own. This house is beautiful and had everything we needed to make our extended family vacation extremely memorable. The porch alone makes renting the house worth it! We would go back every year if we could!
This house could not have been more perfect for my family's vacation. We were five adults and three kids (ages 9, 4, and 2) and had room to spare in this clean, homey, well-kept "cottage". Every detail was considered by the owner...well supplied kitchen, tissues in every bathroom, towels in abundance, immaculately clean, videos and indoor and outdoor games for the entire family. Ten minute walk to a beautiful beach that wasn't nearly as crowded as most of the other beaches we saw. Charming historic York right down the street. Big yard for the kids to run around in. The photos barely do it justice, the home is even more beautiful and spacious than the pictures can show and the owner was easy to get in touch with and work with. It was just perfect...thank you for a wonderful vacation!!
We had a glorious July week at this amazing home minutes from the beach in York Harbar. Ours is a family of serious cooks and we found the roomy kitchen perfectly appointed. The lawn is large enough for a long game of all-terrain bacci or cut-throat croquet, (both sets provided). Every room, bathroom, porch, nook and corner of this spacious house is deeply considered and beautifully decorated. The couple who own it are both friendly and gracious. It was a delight all the way around. Martha would give it a twinkling wink. I give it 5 stars.
My fiance and I rented this cottage for our wedding party last week. It was spacious, lovely, clean, and had everything we could need for a week of wedding fun! We were able to have a lovely bbq that had about 30 people in the house. We had people coming and going the whole week, enjoying the giant porch, playing croquet and bocce ball on the lawn, and chatting in the living room. It was the perfect spot for the 13 of us that were sleeping there. Everyone had privacy and each room had its own bathroom which is exactly what we all needed when getting ready the morning of the wedding. Our parents stayed at a hotel in Ogunquit but somehow always ended up at the cottage, saying that they loved it so much they couldn't stay away.
We absolutely recommend this house to anyone that needs lots of space. It was a short walk to the beach and a short drive to Fun-O-Rama (our favorite place).
Jeanne and David were so sweet and did such an awesome job of making us feel at home in their home.
Our extended family - parents, children, grandchildren - had a wonderful week at this spacious and nicely-maintainted home. Plenty of room, inside and out. The adjoining apartment was real bonus for grandparents not used to being with grandchildren 24/7. Although not directly on the water, two beaches were within reasonable distance. York Harbor and the surrounding region provides great seafood and plenty to do for all ages. The owners were friendly and helpful.
Prestigious York Harbor is located in southern Maine, 70 miles north of Boston, 7 miles north of Portsmouth. Three international airports are within an hours drive. If you enjoy the ocean, you can walk to Long Sands Beach or Harbor Beach or stroll the Cliff Walk overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and York Harbor, one of the most beautiful and protected harbors on the East coast.
There is also a trolley stop across the street. Ride the Ferris Wheel at York Beach, take a boat tour out of Ogunquit, or visit the historic port of Portsmouth NH; there's something for everyone. You'll find shopping, antique shops; art galleries and boutiques all around The Yorks and the famous Kittery Outlet Malls are only six miles away.
