Another Amazing Week at York Beach, ME

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this oceanfront getaway and it was as perfect as our first!

Elizabeth & Norman, the owners, live next door. They are gracious hosts who there for anything you need while totally respect your privacy.

The cottage is clean & cozy and has most everything you need. Norman even delivers the Boston Globe every morning! The ocean view is spectacular, the grounds are well maintained and the location is quiet and private. Most days and evenings you can have the doors and windows open to enjoy the sea breeze while listening to the surf and the buoy bell. And, if it gets too hot simply turn on the air conditioning.

There are also plenty of great restaurants and shopping close by.

Thanks Elizabeth & Norman for another 'wicked awesome' vacation!

Ahhhh, Just Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This is, without a doubt, the most relaxing place and most beautiful property where I could hope to have stayed. Autumn on the southern coast of Maine is my favorite time. We had warm and sunny days to watch the gentle waves and sound of the bell buoy from the adirondack chairs or while being lulled to sleep. A couple of stormy days provided us with quite a show put on by the ocean, while we watched out of the picture window while all snuggled up. It was just so nice. I really hope to come back and do it again next year! Thank you so much! Nancy and Mike

Perfect location

  • 3 of 5

If you want a waterfront location semi close to town but away from the crowds then this cottage is perfect. Beautiful ocean view. Quite neighborhood. Walking distance to town and beach. Easy access to route 1. Yard is well maintained. Owner has done renovations to exterior and house is actually cuter than pictures show. Home is perfect for one couple or one couple and one child. Cottage would be a little small for 4 people. Furniture and beds could stand to be upgraded. Cottage worked great for us because we were out and about all day. Internet and cable TV a big plus.

Owner's Response: Cottage has been adequate for 4 people for over 35 years and has a consistent rental record, often to returning visitors. It is 600 square feet inside. There are two separate bedrooms.. In one, there is a queen bed- the bed and mattress are only 3-4 years old and used only 3 months a year seasonally. In the other bedroom, the 2 twin beds have down mattress pad cushions. The furniture is as pictured in the Homeaway advertisement and upgraded annually - this year new dining table with 4 newly finished hard pine chairs, re-painted wicker furniture, new living room floor lamp. Suggestions from visitors invited. Owners
