STUNNING NUBBLE LIGHTHOUSE & OCEAN VIEWS, 3891 SQ. FT. 267' OF ROCKY COAST!

York House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths: 1 full, w/jetted tub, 2 - 3/4's, 1 - 1/2 bath, sleeps 10

Have the winter of your discontent made summer by this house in York. Take postcard photos from a 2010-13 remodeled 5 bedroom oceanfront home about 1500 feet from Nubble Lighthouse; a mile to the nearest beach. All of the rooms have ocean views; half of the rooms have a view of the Nubble Light House. From the deck, lower level sunroom, or sunny dining room there are panoramic views from Long Sands Beach to the Nubble Light. On a clear night, you can see four lighthouses(from left to right): Nubble or Cape Neddick Light, Boone Island Lighthouse, the Isle of Shoals, and Whaleback Light. No bedroom is more than 7 steps from a bathroom. There are four queen bedrooms, and one with two twin beds. Watch the dawn strike the Nubble Lighthouse; the rhythmic waves crashing against the rocks; the sea birds, the pleasure, lobster and fishing boats, and kayakers. Explore rocky pools at low tide. The perfect place to relax or to walk. Enjoy the cries of the seagulls and the salt air. There are a 42' and a 46'' HDTV, an Xbox360 Kinect, and 5 Sonos wireless speaker units (for hooking up to Internet radio or sync your music with your smart phone, iPad, or iPod). Enjoy WiFi, and a multifunction printer to print your boarding passes. Free long distance to U.S. and Canada.

Why stay here? My wife and I bought this place as it has one of the most stunning locations that we have ever found. For a family gathering or retreat, there are five levels and a .61 acre yard allowing places to be apart or together. There is a separate game/family room for the children, just out of earshot from most of the rest of our home, another living room right by the kitchen and dining area, a deck off of the dining area, and a first floor sunroom for a get away. The Nubble is magical for us at any time of day or year. The leaves in York were stunning again this fall. My sister says that the Christmas lights on the Nubble makes it even more enchanting, as you can see from the picture Michael Blanchette took. Here is a link to a video shot by guest, Beth Dow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ddeAXykUX0 The storms can be majestic showing the awesome power of the waves as they roar and spray on the rocks. Each dawn seems different, the dawn mist, the red in the morning, or the break of any day on the Nubble. No matter what you are doing you can enjoy the incredible light as it changes through the day. Some of the sunsets are spectacular, too. On moonlit nights, gazing on the shimmering waves, sometimes I hear 'Clair de Lune' other times, 'Moonlight Sonata' or 'La Mer.' For a great example of the local birds see: http://nubblebirder.wordpress.com/ We love the sound and smell of the ocean, and the cries of the seagulls, even as they drop shell fish on the rocks. We hope that you will, too. No weddings or large parties. First booking priority is given to returning guests for the same week(s) in the next year. There are reduced rates from September to May, and three day weekends are available from late October until the end of April.

Things to do: Here are a few links to give you some ideas about what you could do:

http://excursionsinmaine.com/trips.htm

for surfing or stand up paddle boarding:

http://attractions.uptake.com/maine/york/liquid_dreams_surf_shop_29261661.html

We have seen stand up paddle boarders on calm days go out toward the lighthouse. On anything but a really calm day, I wouldn't want to try it. :-)

You can rent kayaks:

http://excursionsinmaine.com/trips.htm or

kayaks and bikes:

http://excursionsinmaine.com/trips.htm

and kayak in the ocean or up the York or Cape Neddick rivers and time your trip with the incoming or outgoing tide.

In the summer, there is some live entertainment here:

http://www.innontheblues.com/Home.html

The food at the York Harbor Inn is very good. I recall them having some live music, too. Their website lists some additional attractions, as well as some cooking schools by Stonewall Kitchens.

More things to do: Stonewall Kitchens, which is just about opposite the I-95 exit for York, and it is a lovely place to shop for delicious goodies, have lunch, or just sample and browse until you make up your mind.

Some people fish off our rocks, or go on a boat to sightsee or to fish.

For history buffs, there is an old wharf owned by John Hancock, An Old Gaol (jail) which is also a museum, Inns and other historic things such as an old cemetery with death angels on some of the grave stones.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This property probably has the most spectacular view of the Nubble light house, and the nicest property on the peninsula. It has a large, flat yard in the back and sides and plenty of parking for family and friends, which most of the other homes don’t seem to have. This house is literally right on the ocean. Listening to the waves is so soothing and the kids love to walk and explore the rocks. We rarely left the property because it is so beautiful.







More importantly, the interior of the house is top notch. The layout of the rooms, the quality of the furnishings and décor makes staying there a dream vacation. I got a few ideas for my own home! Everything one could want or need is supplied.







Mike is very attentive and concerned for our comfort and enjoyment. His hospitality is exceptional. We would not hesitate to come back and we have told all our friends what a perfect place this is to have a family vacation.







I also love the Friday to Friday week. It’s the first time we’ve been offered this schedule. It makes the vacation seem longer, and it gives our family members that can’t stay the full week, an entire weekend of enjoyment, instead of 1 day.







Thank you, Mike for making our family vacation the most memorable time in our lives.

My family went to York Beach for summers for over 50 years. I grew up in Worcester, MA. I went to college in Philadelphia, and law school in Omaha. My wife, Delinda Mercer, a psychologist, moved to from Philadelphia to Scottsbluff (where I practice law) for me. The next moving choice is her choice -- that next move will eventually be to York. Our blended family has 4 children. The oldest, Sara, went to Bates College in Lewiston, ME. Our other three children are teenagers, who love the beach.

Mike Javoronok purchased this house in 2010

My family started going to York when I was 4 years old. I spent many a summer in York, surfing, and working at the Oceanside Store. What surprised me is that my wife, Delinda, wanted us to return there, eventually to retire. I have a photo of Nubble Light and a rainbow that I took from the deck. Everytime I look at that photo, I think of Wordsworth:

MY heart leaps up when I behold

A rainbow in the sky:

So was it when my life began,

So is it now I am a man,

So be it when I shall grow old 5

Or let me die!

The child is father of the man:

And I could wish my days to be

Bound each to each by natural piety.

Above you can see a rainbow that Alyssa DiRubbo took that was even better than mine!

Edward Weston described his career in photography as his love affair with light. Every time I go back, Weston, also, comes to mind. Each time, I see something different, sometimes new. Even as I do my DIY homeowner things, sometimes, I will just stop to take in the wonders around me. The changing light, weather, sights, smells, and sounds make our home on the Nubble a multi-sensory delight for those who take the time to partake of them. We hope that you will feel that way, too.

We bought this home as it has one of the most spectacular views that I have ever seen! We and some our guests who shared their photos have tried to capture some of that sense of wonder and place. The views are remarkable all year, not just in the summer. We enjoy the fall colors; the Christmas lights on the Nubble; the clean starkness of the snow, the rebirth that is Spring, and the ocean smells and sounds of summer when we open the windows more. To see what a very talented professional photographer can do check out: http://www.michaelblanchette.com Mike took some of the shots for our website. What will you shoot?

As mentioned, every room has an ocean view, half the rooms have a lighthouse view. There are five levels to allow space together or away. For example, the living room, dining room, and kitchen are open to each other. The dining room has a panoramic ocean view, with the lighthouse on the left. The kitchen has black granite countertops, cherry cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and it is well outfitted to suit most needs of those who cook. There is a five burner gas stove. The appliances are mostly Breville or Cuisinart.

There is a separate game/living room with an Xbox 360 Kinect. The first floor sunroom and the deck are other away spaces. In good weather or bad, it is a place to relax and enjoy.

JUST INCREDIBLE EVEN IN OFF SEASON

  • 5 of 5
This was a special treat for my birthday. The pictures did not do justice to this beautiful home. I am just sorry my adult children were not able to join us, because the house is perfect for an extended family gathering. The several levels provide a little bit of separation so couples can have their own bedroom and bathroom. The home is exquisitely appointed, beautiful tile bathrooms, lovely hardwood floors, an elegant kitchen and comfortable, quality furniture. The owner had provided some extra amenities in the cupboards so we didn't have to buy everything from scratch. Being off season, we stayed in for meals, but I think we would have in any case, because the view from the dining room was just amazing. I fell in love with the Nubble when I lived in Massachusetts for a year and to see it everyday was just magical.
The owner was attentive and responsive to our settling in needs. The Wi-Fi was great and there is an awesome computer in the kitchen that was very up to date.
We would highly recommend the local Hanneford store. It was every bit as good as Whole Foods, great veggies, a good bakery and a complete seafood counter. We also fell in love with the local bakery When Pigs Fly which makes great sourdough bread. They also ship and my brother has taken to ordering it on line.
I would highly recommend this property and we hope we can return soon.

Owner's Response: Hi Cindy,
Thanks for the lovely review, and for spending your Birthday at our place in Maine! I'm so glad that you enjoyed it so much! You made me laugh as I've said before that there seem to be two schools of thought with regard to the photos of and from our home: those that say the place is just like in the photos, and those, like you, who say that the photos do not do it justice. At one time, I had taken most of the photos! After several comments similar to yours, I had a highly skilled professional photographer, Mike Blanchette, take some more pictures. One of his photos looks like as one guest said, "Like it was out of "The Polar Express." Yet, the same response! Too funny! We are blessed to have a place that can foment such a complimentary discussion! We also love it when folks enjoy all of what we offer as much as you and your brother! One note of clarification, there are five levels and 3 1/2 baths. The first floor has two bedrooms which share a 3/4 bath, 2-3 steps from their doors. The second floor has the kitchen, dining room and a living room, but no bedrooms, and it has a powder room. The third floor has two bedrooms. One bedroom on that floor has an adjoining door into the full bath with a separate two headed shower, and a jetted tub for two. The other bedroom on that floor has a hallway entrance to the same bath, again about 2-3 steps from that bedroom. In between the fourth and fifth floors is another 3/4 bath with views of the lighthouse from the shower. That bathroom is about 7 steps from the top or fifth floor bedroom. The fourth floor has the second living room.

I'm also glad that you caught the magic of "The Nubble." It's hard to explain to folks who haven't seen or caught it. Parts of it for me are: walking in the mist, seeing the lighthouse go in and out of view, while listening to the fog horn, or the cries of the gulls. Other days, it is the smell of the salt air and the sounds of the ocean from gentle lapping to the pounding and soaring of the surf, while the water changes color and plays with the light. Please come back!
Best,
Mike

GLORIOUS AND SUPERB

  • 5 of 5
What a GLORIOUS 10 days spent in your beautiful home. I have read many wonderful reviews from previous renters who came before us and don't know if we can add anything new other than express sincere thank you's for sharing your home.

When my husband and I landed at Portland Jetport on May 6th we had no idea as to what lie ahead for us for his 2 day stay and my 10 days. As we meandered toward the Nubble Lighthouse we both looked at each other and said "I think we made the right choice". When we walked into your super clean home, we were embraced with the most spectacular ocean views. We again looked at each other and voiced "we DEFINATELY made the right choice". For me, it felt as if the entire house wrapped it's loving arms around me and whispered, welcome home, even if it's only for 10 days. It didn't take but one day for my hard-working hubby to pose the question "do you want to come back next year"? One word: ABSOLUTELY!!! As you know, Mike, we immediately got in touch with you and rented for 2 weeks in '2015'.

You, Mike, have been the most gracious and kindhearted host making sure that all was going well and that we were comfortable. As you know, I hosted my one and only sister, 3 of her daughters, my 2 daughters from Georgia for a Mother's Day weekend. You hooked us up with the best catering service (The Kitchen Chics) for the most memorable Mother's Day gathering I can remember. The food, the bright sunshine and ocean views in the background was short of HEAVEN.

I could go on forever praising your home, and what it offers, but your regular renters are aware of what I speak of and your future renters will have to experience it on their own. As I sit on your porch enjoying the last few days of my stay, please know that you are not only creating memories for your own family, here in your York, Maine Oasis, but allowing others to create memories with their own families for many, many years to come.

Thanks again and see you next year!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Roger and Joan,
Thank you for your kind words, sharing your stories, and welcome to our family of guests! Actions can speak louder than words, and coupled with your words of praise was your desire to return next year! We usually give current year guests first chance to book for the next year, and you are staying even longer then! Thanks also for being such good sports, for during your stay we had some freshening of our home, and some fairly extensive plantings of native flowers, grasses, and shrubs. Thomas Berger of Green Art is another artist who has made our place better! With any luck, the plantings will be in bloom for your return next year. We have tried to improve our home and grounds each year, and you felt that sense of welcome that our home can bring. The size and layout allow time alone, or with others. Also, under separate cover you shared how busy hubby, Roger, got to sense the respite the sights, sounds, and Maine ocean air from the deck can bring. I'm so glad you enjoyed the Kitchen Chicks, for their staff is talented, friendly, and their food and presentation most tasteful, especially when coupled with the dining room's panoramic ocean views. We love it when families can make and share their memories as you did. See you next year!
Best regards,
Mike and Delinda

JUST PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Where to start! This home is just beautiful!! We have rented homes up and down the East coast for many years, and this one tops them all. The views from every window were wonderful. The home itself, included every possible amenity. It was super clean and every aspect of the home was the highest of quality. The location was perfect - between Kittery, York Beach(es), Ogunquit and the Marginal Way - there was lots to do! I must say, that we did venture out to explore, but enjoyed the house itself so much, that we stayed put a great deal of the time. I would also be remiss if I did not mention how great it was to work with the homeowners. From the moment we contacted them about the rental, until our departure, they were wonderful, friendly and helpful. I most certainly am looking forward to returning!

Owner's Response: Dear Kate,
Thanks for the kind words and the thoughtful review! A lot of our lives are lived in a "Compared to what?" world. As an experienced consumer, your opinion means a lot because of your favorable comparison of our home to other homes where you have stayed. Also, we are most fortunate to have such wonderful views right out the windows! Those views are spectacular all year, not just in the summer, and we are so grateful when others can take advantage of them in the other seasons. Vivaldi did not just score, "Summer." I think that the photos of Mike Blanchette, who is truly an artist, show what can be done year round with the views from our home and just down the street. Thanks for the kind words about us, too. We try to keep up and freshen our home as best we can, so that others may feel the same way that you do. We try to make sure that everything is okay for your stay, and to fix anything that is not, as soon as we can. Some things can be a little complicated, and we try to offer help if needed. It's nice to have our efforts appreciated! We hope that you and yours please do return!
Best regards,
Mike and Delinda

CHRISTMASTIME AT NUBBLE LIGHT

  • 5 of 5
If you believe in Magic, this is the place for you. My four days in your wonderful home were, indeed, Magic. My every need was anticipated. From the 4 different coffee makers, to a two-sided fireplace, to music throughout the entire house, to my choice of 5 bedrooms, I felt catered to.

I drew a chair up to the dining room window and watched the tide’s powerful energy create magnificent sprays upon the rocks. One of the December days held temps at 57 degrees so I sat out on the deck! (Did you use some of your own magic, Michael, to arrange that?) Upstairs in my bedroom I was able to pull a bench up to a window and watch the water some more.

Morning, noon, and night I simply drew the energy of the pounding surf deep into my soul so as to sustain myself when I would need to pull away from my beloved Maine coast and return to Michigan. I thought I would write, or maybe plan my next workshop, but instead I grew quiet, contemplative and stronger with each movement of the ocean.

The final enchantment each night was the splendid display of the Christmas lights on Nubble Lighthouse! If you don’t believe in Magic, this is still the place for you---you will become a believer.

Owner's Response: If you believe in magic, then it is real! Thank you so much for all the kind words and thoughts! Many only think of the beach in the summer, yet the sights are wonderful all year! The lines come to mind:
"The whole world
became my garden!
But the sea
which no one tends
is also a garden
when the sun strikes it
and the waves
are wakened.
I have seen it
and so have you
when it puts all flowers
to shame."
Please come back.
Best,
Mike

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this property was an awesome experience. The views at sunrise are breathtaking, especially with the lighthouse. We visited this property in late October and the foliage was so colorful. Our group was especially pleased with the layout of this house. There were several levels so people had their own spaces/bathrooms to use, and the main level was very spacious to do all of our socializing as a large group. The homeowner Mike was especially accommodating to make sure our stay was enjoyable. This property is more beautiful than the pictures. Already planning our next trip. Can't wait

Owner's Response: Hi Cindy,
Thanks for the wonderful review! I'm so glad that the weather and the leaves cooperated to give you such a colorful stay. We are most fortunate that there seems to be something different to see and relish all year. I'm also glad that you could take advantage of the layout, which allows for groups, whether friends or multi-generationals, to gather, or to have a more private space. On the photos, at some other places, some people complain that the photos are way better than what you see. I've done the best I can with my photos, and I've been told repeatedly as you did that the sights are more beautiful than my photos. While sometimes, it just depends on the weather, I'm hiring a professional to see what he comes up with - they should be up soon. Please do come back! We will try to accomodate you and yours, once again, as well as we can!

THE BEST

  • 5 of 5
This house has everything to make for a wonderful vacation. Anyone who loves the Maine coast will be more than happy with the views that the house provides. In addition to the picturesque lighthouse, the windows also look out on the ocean where the dawning sun can be seen as lights a path over the water to the freshly washed rocks. Throughout the day to sunset, I found my attention continually drawn to the views of the waves and the boulders. I must have taken several hundred pictures of the lighthouse, the rough sea one day, and even the clusters of lichen growing on the rocky outcrop outside the house.
The home itself has everything one could want on a vacation -- spacious bedrooms, several living areas in which to hang out, first-class bathrooms, and a well-equipped kitchen.
All of my praises for this lovely home are echoed by my family. We had one of the best holidays ever there and hope to come back again some time.

Owner's Response: Dear Elizabeth,
Thank you for your thoughtful and well written review! We have been so fortunate to have such a lovely location with excellent year round views as you described from your Thanksgiving stay! Thank you, also, for sharing your shot of the golden morning light on the water and rocks! With your permission, I posted it on the website. My daughter, Sara, says that part of the benefit of an off season stay is that you don't have to get up as early for sunrise shots. Also, I sense your ability to celebrate even, "(T)he sweep Of easy wind and downy flake." that is so much a part of enjoying winter in New England. Regardless of the time of day, the light on the waves and the rocks is often fascinating, sometimes scintillating. I'm glad that you could enjoy it so! As you know, we have tried to outfit our home in Maine so that our guests could feel as at home as your family did. As you said, with two living rooms and a sunroom, there are lots of spaces to be together, split into groups, or to have some solitude. We hope that all our guests will bring their own "joie de vivre" as you and yours did! Please come back!
Best,
Mike and Delinda

Notes Friday is changover day for weekly rentals. From late October through April, we have a weekday as changeover day -- we can only get a cleaning crew in Monday through Friday. Because of the size of our home, the cleaning crew charges $260.00 to clean, which is additional. The above is subject to a 8% state sales tax. Also, we have a high rate of returning guests for June through September.

Notes:
The larger appliances are GE profile or energy efficient Cabrio. The smaller appliances are mostly Breville or Cuisinart. Our home also affords much privacy on its five levels, but to do so, it does have stairs. We have five Sonos wireless units for use individually, or synched together by a separate controller, or by your smartphone, IPad, or iPod, to play your favorites, or for Internet radio listening. We connected the second HDTV in December. All three TV's have DVD players, and a large number of Time Warner channels. There are WiFi and wired internet at the fastest speed we could get from Time Warner. One 46' Samsung TV has a soundbar with Blu Ray, and it can stream from the internet; the other 42. There is currently an HP touchscreen and multi function printer on site. We love the Nubble in good weather and bad, but there is a full house back up generator to insure no power outages in ice storms
