CHARMING MAINE COTTAGE. WALK TO BEAUTIFUL HARBOR BEACH.

York Harbor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1bath, sleeps 5

Quaint 'fisherman's cottage' in wonderful York Harbor. Easy stroll to gorgeous beach, the inner harbor, spectacular ocean cliff walk, nature trails along scenic York river. Walk to fine restaurants. Short drive to Long Sands beach and local attractions. Queen-size bed in master BR; 2 twins in second BR; 1 twin in third BR. Fully equipped kitchen with place settings for six. All bedding provided. Free wireless internet and cable TV.

Harbor Beach declared 'local treasure'!! Down East Magazine listed Harbor Beach as a 'local treasure,' and one of a dozen 'hidden beaches' in the state of Maine. The magazine highlights the secret pleasures of this special place and correctly notes that 'there's a lot to gawk at, and a lot to do.' The only problem is the lack of parking, says Down East, but it won't be a problem for you, since it is only a few minutes walk to this beautiful, 'hidden' spot from your private cottage!! This is the beach that the locals use. It is not unusual to have the beach entirely to yourself for an early morning walk with coffee or a late evening stroll.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • pets not allowed

My family purchased this property in 1958. Kim and I took over in 2007. Fisherman's Cottage is the only property that we rent. It's a true 'Mom & Pop' business. The cottage is immediately adjacent to our home, so we have a vested interest in keeping the property in great shape. We can often be of immediate assistance if required. We are your neighbors as well as being the owners!

We love York Harbor and southern Maine. We enjoy sharing all that this area has to offer with our guests. You won't find a better deal near the ocean.

Off the main road, but still an easy stroll to beach, river, restaurants. Perfect for couples or families with small children.

WONDERFUL, COMFORTABLE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Our family thoroughly enjoyed a week's stay. The location is excellent: very short walk and you are on the beach; you are on a quiet side street (we had friends that rented a house very close to this cottage and complained about the noise, but you don't have to worry about that here!); near many of the local attractions (but not in the middle of a busy tourist strip). Our two children (10 and 13) enjoyed playing in the outdoor area. We would definitely recommend this location, whether you are looking for a comfortable place to sit back and take it easy for a week or if you are wanting to enjoy meaning of the sites Maine has to offer. We would definitely stay here again.

WE LOVE THIS COTTAGE AND ITS LOCATION IN YORK!

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time we've stayed at Fisherman's Cottage and hope to return for many years to come. The cottage is in a great location--less than a 5 minute walk to Harbor Beach. Kim and Barry are wonderful people to get to know and they always have great suggestions for things to do nearby and local restaurants to visit. The cottage is quite cozy with lots of room for the 5 of us. It is well stocked with everyone you could need. One of our best vacations two years in a row!

VERY COMFORTABLE, FAMILY FRIENDLY COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 4 nights with our 2 year old daughter, and this cottage was a wonderful find. It is clean, cozy, well-stocked. and very comfortable. We appreciated that there were some toys for our daughter to play with. The kitchen was not only well-stocked, but had high-quality pots/pans/utensils. The location was great, walking distance to the beach, as well as to good restaurants. The owner was friendly and helpful; the cottage has a notebook full of good recommendations for places to see and good restaurants in the area. If we come to the area again, we'll definitely stay here again. Thanks for a great getaway!

GREAT STAY IN MAINE

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at Fisherman's Cottage. The proximity to Harbor Beach could not have been better (5 minute walk at most). Kim and Barry have thought of everything for your vacation from beach toys for the kids to anything you may need in the kitchen. They are incredibly friendly, helpful, and available. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this house for your next stay in Maine.

EVERYTHING WE NEEDED

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 4 nights with 4 children 4, 4, 8, and 9. The home was very clean and honestly had everything we needed. More than enough towels for showers and the beach. The beach chairs and beach cart which was invaluable. Made packing much lighter. Kim, the owner was terrific. Both Bill and Kim went out of their way to contact us to make sure we were all set for our trip.

Thank you and we hope to return soon.

GREAT WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
The Fisherman's Cottage was a great place to stay. My boyfriend and I were looking to getaway for just a long weekend, and this cottage was perfect. It's in the perfect location of southern Maine where everything is close by, even the beach! Everything is provided for you, from places to eat and places to go, to the essential lobster plates and bibs (which we used!). The cottage is situated on a quiet street near York Village, and everything we did was within 15-20 minutes of the house. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and it was in part because of this house. I can safely say we'll be back here in the future. I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation.
