VACATION ON THE OCEAN IN THIS PERFECT GETAWAY RETREAT!

York Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Oceanfront with 7 BR's, 3 Baths, Sleeps 14 with ocean view & sound

For a bold and inspiring vacation, you are invited to experience this breathtaking seaside get-a-away and community for its fun, relaxation and rich history. During your stay at 'Sea Dreams', enjoy sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean from the house and deck perched high on a rocky ledge above the water. Unlike other cottages, this exquisite destination is situated along a re-entrant of the shore without structures either side to provide an open air feel with full view of York Bay and the Atlantic sunrise. Relax to the sights and sounds on 'The Nubble' in the community of York. Experience the ever changing seascape and fill your senses with the smell of fresh ocean air and the hint of seaweed in the morning mist. Get close to nature with a bird's eye view off the deck of gulls flying at eye level along the shore and watching everyday life on the water with lobstermen pulling traps, people sailing, kayakers in one with nature navigating rock exposures and people just having fun.

Under new ownership the property is newly inspired to please and fulfill your dreams of a complete oceanside experience. With 15 rooms (11 with clear view of the water), this three story structure offers plenty of retreats with something for everyone who stays here. With full amenities for cooking and entertainment, sun room, deck and large family gathering and entertainment room, you will never need to leave the cottage to experience the vacation you desire. Any time of day, settle back with a book from the library in tranquility on the garden patio overlooking the ocean. The entire cottage is fashionably decorated in coastal style with both new and antique furnishings. Bedspreads are of quality linen to make rooms both comfortable and tasteful. Drift off to sleep in comfort to the peaceful sounds of the ocean.

Historically, Sea Dreams is located in the hamlet of 'Concordville' in the community of York. This location offers a wonderful spot central to everything you want to do away from the cottage. One only has to venture out on foot to experience the colonial charm and idyllic ocean setting which transformed this once historic fishing village into a premier vacation spot since the early 1800's. A short walk from the cottage leads you to Short Sands Beach and the York Beach Town Center. The town offers leisure and adventure in the form of shopping, dining and seaside activities. Local proprietors add to the cultural experience with something for everyone from unique gifts, clothing, jewelry, home décor and beach accessories to the delight of homemade taffy, fudge and ice cream. Enjoy family fun at the Wild Kingdom Amusement Park and Children's Zoo. At the beach enjoy the uniqueness of Bowl-a-Rama and the open air arcade a step off the sand. For pure relaxation enjoy sun bathing and a stroll on the Boardwalk to partake in the sights and sounds of timeless fun. During the summer months be entertained by free weekend evening concerts at the Gazebo on the Green. For the explorer beach comb the shore for sea life, sea glass and interesting rocks.

Heading in the other direction takes you to the Cape Neddick Lighthouse. Once named 'Savage Rock', you will experience the everlasting 'first light' dating back to 1879. Or take a short cut across The Nubble to Long Sands Beach. This mile long beach offers more fun and beach related activities where you can rent paddle boards, surf boards and kayaks to take your own excursions on the water.

To venture out further hop in your car and tour the scenic countryside and surrounding communities. A short drive north along scenic Shore Road leads you to Ogunquit, a quaint little town with lots to do including a summer playhouse and picturesque Perkin's Cove with shops, marina and a walk on The Marginal Way. Head south to historic York Village. Visit the museums and churches of Old Yorke. Then, on to Kittery to visit outlet stores and Yummies for a taste of old fashion candies. On your way home, stop in York Harbor stop to purchase live lobsters right off the boat. Then back at Sea Dreams, with lobsters in tow and fresh vegetables, berries and pies purchased from the local farmers, gaze off the rocks while you wait for the dinner bell to ring.

Let Sea Dreams take you to simpler times and be your vacation destination of choice on 'The Nubble'. Guests are encouraged to sign the guest book and share their experience with others and help to improve their next stay.

We had a wonderful time during our recent stay in this lovey ocean front "cottage" that sits right on a rocky point overlooking the Atlantic Ocean with gorgeous panoramic views overlooking Atlantic Ocean, rocky shoreline and the historic town of York, Maine. The cottage is located within walking distance of the famous Nubble Light House & York’s famous sand beach. There were only the 2 couples on our recent trip, but with seven bedrooms located on 3 floors and multiple sitting areas, this house will make a great place for an extended family or multi-family vacation. Lots to sites and attractions to check out within a short drive or you can just relax on the deck or sun room and enjoy the great views and the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks.

The house & amenities were just as described by the owner and the property manager made sure to contact us after we arrived to check to see if we had any questions or if there was anything else that we needed.

Car: not necessary

While you are visiting the York Beach, be sure to visit the Union Bluff for a great meal and a beer at the bar. Also within walking distance is the famous Goldenrod Candy Shop. You can stand on the sidewalk and watch how this historic restaurant makes homemade salt water taffy. Take the kids inside to visit an old fashion penny candy counter, or sit at the soda fountain and have a sundae made with the Goldenrod's homemade ice cream!

There are great souvenir shops, choose Mexican, Chinese, wood grilled pizza or fresh seafood from one of the many restaurants located within a quick walk. Many nights a week, stroll over to the gazebo to hear local bands playing in the evening. Of course, there is York's Wild Kingdom which features a very nice zoo and rides for the kids. Wrist bands are good for the day so go for the zoo in the afternoon, walk back to the house for dinner and head back for rides in the evening. Take a morning or afternoon to head to the Nubble Light House. This is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the country.

We are so lucky in York. We have 4 beautiful public beaches to choose from, and if that is not enough, take a quick ride to Ogunquit and enjoy that public beach as well. While you are in Ogunquit, enjoy the shopping and dining there as well. Or make a day of it and jump on board a whale watching boat or deep sea fishing vessel in Perkins Cove.

There is so much to do in our area we just can't cover it. Of course, a Maine vacation is all about relaxing so leave yourself plenty of time to sit and enjoy the ocean. Maine really is the way life should be.
