Hear the sound of the buoy clanging and the waves rolling in, smell the salt air mingled with wonderful fragrant flowers while you relax in this charming, comfortable cottage. The owners, Marion and Gary, make your stay memorable with their thoughtful touches ... beach chairs, boogie boards, beach umbrella, a small grill and a readily appointed kitchen help to make your stay enjoyable. You are minutes away from downtown York Beach with it's quaint shopping, historic Goldenrod Kisses restaurant/candy shop and Short Sands Beach. Travel just a tad further south and you come upon the lovely Cape Neddick lighthouse, beautiful Long Sands Beach and then the historic area of York, Maine. Travel a bit further down picturesque Route 1A and you reach terrific outlet shopping in Kittery, Maine and then more fabulous history and shopping in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. If you travel North on Route 1A instead, you will pass through Ogonquit and Wells before reaching gorgeous Kennebunk and Kennebunkport, Maine where shopping and restaurants abound, but don't stop there ... travel along the coast through Old Orchard Beach, Scarborough and then see the historic Portland Head lighthouse in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. Go a bit further and spend the day in Portland, Maine for more shopping, history and restaurants. This cottage is close to so much, yet still a quiet and peaceful retreat from the world. We have stayed here often over the past 10+ years and have loved every visit. The only downside is having to leave!
