Overview

York Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom (Sleeps 6)

This newly remodeled vacation home is a quaint expanded cape with peekaboo views of Barrells Mill Pond. It is in a quiet neighborhood, a stones throw from the Wiggly Bridge and a short walk to the York Harbor Beach, historic York Village, the town docks and marina. The house has just been remodeled with a relaxing modern beach theme, complete with a new kitchen and master bedroom with en suite bathroom (2013). There is plenty of room for 6 people with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room, family room, and kitchen. There is a shady backyard with newly installed patio with views to Wiggly Bridge and a small front porch that comfortably seats 4 people. The master bedroom has a queen bed with two twins in each of the other bedrooms.

York is a popular beach community with history, charm and accessibility. First settled in 1624 and the first incorporated city in America, the area offers a myriad of fun things to do including relaxing on the beach, fishing, sightseeing and shopping. It is home to the John Hancock Wharf and Mark Twain's Summer home and is an area which still has architectural examples from the Gilded Age, particularly the Shingle style.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • limited accessibility
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

Quintessential New England Charm

  • 5 of 5
Cute as a button, clean as a whistle. Four of us enjoyed this charming Cape Cod house for 4 nights. Working with Kevin was a breeze; he was so responsive to all of my e-mails; gaining entry to the house was effortless. Quiet neighborhood with a view of a cove; walkable to restaurants and beach. We enjoyed dinners at the York Harbor Pub, Dockside Restaurant, went to Nubble Lighthouse, walked on the Cliff Walk, toured the Old Gaol in York Village, enjoyed ice cream at the local ice cream parlor, enjoyed shopping at the Kittery Outlets on the one rainy day; also enjoyed dinner at When Pigs Fly. A great time was had by all. We would definitely recommend staying here.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed with family for a wedding that was held at Foster's Clambake across the street and had a blast. The house is adorable - recently renovated with lot of nice touches. It was the perfect setup for the weekend. Kevin was a terrific host and I'd absolutely stay here again next time I'm in southern Maine.

Home for the holidays!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing cottage! Kevin went out of his way to ensure that everything was in order and ready for our arrival prior to our 12 night stay for Christmas and New Years. The home included everything we needed and more. The kitchen is perfectly stocked to prepare any meal you wish, showers have plenty of hot water and great pressure, and we wish we could have stayed even longer. Everything was just as described, nicely decorated, and well maintained.

Situated on a quiet street, this home is beautifully decorated and is so welcoming and warm. While venturing out, we took in the local sights such as Wiggly Bridge/Steedman Woods and interacted with some of the neighbors all of which were so kind and friendly.

We were perfectly located for daily trips to Portsmouth, Manchester, and Nashua, NH as well as Portland, ME. We were caught up in a winter storm, but kept nice and warm inside with plenty of space to spread out and relax. The roads were paved daily, which made venturing out a piece of cake.

I can't say enough wonderful things about this home and it's owners who made our Christmas stay perfect!

Charming and Quaint!

  • 5 of 5
We came up from Virginia to attend a wedding. The house was beautifully decorated and had everything you could need right at your finger tips. I felt like I stepped right into an episode of HGTV, The house is close to everything and there is plenty to do, whether is shopping, sight seeing, dining, or ust relaxing. The people in the area were so friendly and inviting. You felt right at home.
I plan to come back next year for a longer stay and will rent here again!!
Thanks,
Cerise Chappelle

A little slice of heaven off the beaten path

  • 4 of 5
Our family stayed at this very charming cape house the second week of August and had a wonderful time. The weather was perfect, which really was the icing on our vacation. First off, the house was clean, beautiful, and had (almost) everything we could ask for (linens, beach towels, beach chairs/umbrella...) We would have loved an outdoor shower, but used the hose and a gas grill (we are just bad getting steak done to our liking with charcoal). Other than that the cottage was perfect with plenty of room for our family of four (8 and 6 year old children).

We could walk to Wiggley Bridge, and kayaking in the Harbor. It was about a mile walk to Harbor Beach...and only two miles to Long Sands.

We were married at the Dockside 11 years ago and we walked there for a wonderful dinner on the porch one night.

Great proximity to stores and restaurants...and only a few miles down the road from Marginal Way/Perkins Cove.

We appreciated the quiet and quaintness of our location and look forwarding to staying here again. Thanks so much for a fantastic week in our favorite location!
