York House Rental Photos and Description

6 bedroom, 4 bath waterfront home

The banks of the Cape Neddick river invite you to sit back, relax and watch the sunset over the water. Located on beautiful Shore Road, our property, once a B&B, offers a large recently updated home with plenty of room for everyone, making it the perfect place for a summer vacation, family reunion, or wedding party. Enjoy morning coffee, a cocktail, lobster bake or an evening bonfire in the spacious back yard with private dock overlooking the harbor.

Our house offers six bedrooms, four of which have water views. It boasts two master bedrooms, one on the first floor with a private deck and one on the second floor with a two person Jacuzzi. The four other bedrooms are on the second floor and share two additional baths. The modern fully appliance kitchen features granite countertops, breakfast bar, views of the river and is open to the living and dinning rooms. The living room has views of the water, flat screen TV, stereo with surround sound, built in bookshelves, and a wall of windows. The dinning room features seating for all and a wood burning stove/fireplace. A second living area or den with games, puzzles, another flat screen TV. and WII game system is available at the other end of the house for all to enjoy.

Tidewatch is located close to everything yet outside of the hustle and bustle of the beach. Just walk down the street and you can stop at the Cape Neddick Lobster Pound, a great place overlooking the harbor, for a meal, cocktail or evening entertainment. A little further will bring you to the Cape Neddick Beach, a quiet and safe haven perfect for families with young children, with tide pools, shallow calm water, and an uncrowded of beach. A fifteen minute walk in the other direction will bring you to Short Sands Beach with its larger crowds, amusement park, shops, restaurants and pubs, wild kingdom, funorama, bowling alley and gazebo with summertime concerts. For those more adventurous Long Sands Beach with its designated surfing areas is about one mile down the road while York Harbor and the village are about five miles away

Fabulous house and great location!

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect - very well laid out for a large group (there were 11 adults plus a baby and a toddler) and very soundproof. The grounds were lovely and a hammock overlooking a small bay was a huge bonus. My only complaint is that there was no kettle - we are tea drinkers and it really is much easier to boil water in a kettle than a pot. Other than that, we had everything we wanted - the kitchen and bathrooms were fantastic and the beds were super comfortable. We would definitely return, perhaps even next year.

Great stay over Labor Day Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay here over Labor Day weekend. Close to a small beach that wasn't private, but appeared to only be populated by those who were local. We were able to walk (aprx 4 minutes) to the beach that was just perfect for our little ones. There were lots of areas for them to explore and the water was so clean and beautiful. The house was great, lots of bedrooms, nice kitchen, two living areas, large dining table. We were also very close to the more popular beach areas as well as York's Wild Kingdom. The backyard was perfect for the kids as well, nice and flat for them to run around in, a tree swing that the kids loved, and the dock where we caught crabs. I would definitely come back! My 3 year old even said the next day, mom, I really miss that vacation.

The perfect property for a family get-away!

  • 5 of 5
Our recent stay at Tidewatch was sure to be viewed as one of our most memorable family vacations. I found this home most welcoming and comfortable for our party of 14! There is ample space to spread out... but we enjoyed a few nights gathered around the large dining table for a meal and conversation at the end of our relaxing days. We enjoyed time at Short Sands, the beach at Cape Neddick - within walking distance, and thoroughly took advantage to tie our tubes to the dock in the backyard at high tide. And speaking of the backyard... we were able to use the gas grill to cook out on warmer evenings; we also used the outdoor lobster cooker one night; everyone took turns lying in the hammock... the kids used the tree swing endlessly! I don't think we could find a better property in the beach area.- especially with 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, laundry, and a full amazing kitchen. Craig was always available to us and very accommodating. We will definitely be looking to return next year.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a great 14 night stay at Tidewatch. The location is perfect. The adults felt far enough away from the more crowded areas of Short Sands, while the teenagers felt close enough to it to walk or ride bikes. We kept our 5 kayaks in the backyard which got used just about every day. The home was just as described on the site. The bedrooms were all comfortable and the home was large enough that we never felt crowded. The kitchen was large enough to prepare for all of us. We often used the outdoor grill. Craig was very helpful and pleasant during our stay.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My family & friends, which consisted of 9-15 people visiting at various times, had a wonderful week at Tidewatch. In fact, it was so quiet and scenic there that we rarely left and never even went to the beach! We enjoyed sitting out in the backyard, kayaking, and utilized the fire pit at night. The house was just as beautiful as the pictures on the site and there was ample room for everyone to congregate at the dining room table, yet we were able to get away if we wanted - from the game room to the patio to the backyard. We were easily able to prepare meals for the group in the kitchen, and also used the grill a couple of times. Craig was very nice, pleasant and helpful to us! We enjoyed talking and visiting with him. We hope to return next year!

Lovely family vacation home

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely vacation with our extended family in this large, comfortable home. The newly renovated house was clean and bright with a great layout. The open concept first floor and multitude of bedrooms and bathrooms easily accommodated our large family. The large back yard provided plenty of green space for our young children to play and we all loved watching the tide come in and out each day. The well-equipped kitchen and large expandable dining table made it easy to share family dinners together each night. The beach was just a short walk away and provided hours of fun for our family each day. Craig was easy to reach and helpful whenever we needed anything. We had a wonderful vacation here and will return again next summer.
