3 Br cottage sleeps 6 offers an open concept kitchen, eating area, and living room with TV, spacious enclosed, screened front porch to nestle after a long day at the beach, perfect for reading a book, relaxing with family and friends, or just to sit and daydream, 1 bath, driveway parking for 3 tandem cars, back patio, BBQ propane grill, and a yard in which to play. Scant 1/3 mile to Short Sands Beach, local attractions, restaurants, and shopping.
If you like the beach and York Beach, this is the cottage for you. Our family spent a week at this cottage and had a great experience. The cottage has 3 decent (cottage) sized bedrooms and a combined living-kitchen-dining area. It is a short walk to Short Sands beach and to York Beach center. Easy coming and going. Ideal for families and couples. Loved the screened-in front porch. We spent a lot of time there before and after the beach. Cottage was very clean on arrival. It has a 'shared' grill but that worked out fine. We used it each night and did not have any scheduling conflicts. Owner was very responsive to emails and correspondence.

My siblings and I grew up in Arlington, Massachusetts and spend part of every summer vacation at our cottage in York Beach. We all still live in the New England area. We love York Beach and enjoy seeing the next generations become enthralled with it as well.
My family and I have spent every summer up at our cottage by the sea since we were young children. My father's family had been coming up to York Beach for generations to enjoy the beaches and the other myriad of things one can experience when spending summer vacations in a beach town. In fact, many of our cousins also own homes in the area.
There's nothing like walking down to the beach everyday of summer vacation and not returning home until the day was over. We swam and surfed, got 'treats' on the beach, played at the playground right at the edge of the beach and dug in the sand. Oh, the sandcastles we built!
When we got older, we all worked at The Goldenrod, a local ice cream, candy store, and restaurant in 'downtown' York Beach. Now, the next generation enjoys their time at our sweet little family cottage.
We hope you have a fun and relaxing vacation here as well!
Early on, we made the decision to enclose and screen in the 24 x 8 front porch. It was a good decision as we spent a huge amount of time on that porch outside but screened-in, eating dinner, talking, laughing, reading, playing board games, making up our own games, and people watching, of course! Since our cottage is located within walking distance of the beach and the town, we would greet our neighbors from the end of the street as they made their way down to town.
Located a brief walk to Short Sands Beach for beach combing, sunbathing, or splashing in the waves. Many other activities include Animal Forest Park, Bowling, Penny Arcade, Ellis Park Playground, shopping, churches, and several local restaurants. No need for a car once you arrive!
