The cottage is a 'stone's throw' to a rocky beach for tide pooling, swimming at high tide, star gazing, and views of Shorts Sands Beach! Hear the waves from the cottage! A short walk the other way is another small tidal beach in the bay, scramble over the rocks to get there.
Popular Short Sands Beach is a pleasant 1/2 mile walk on a tree-lined side street. Shops, restaurants (including great local seafood). You'll find York's Wild Kingdom, The Goldenrod (world famous for salt water taffy made the same way 100 years), Funarama with games including skee ball, a wonderful beach side playground and the Gazebo for summer concerts. Walk on another 20 minutes to Dunne's ice cream and on to the Nubble Lighthouse, enjoying the rocky Maine coastline, and fabulous ocean views. Long Sands beach is another little walk or drive away.
Short drives open a world of sightseeing, shopping, hiking, boating, etc. Portland is 30 minutes away with ferries to the Maine islands; driving up or down the coast leads you to outlet shopping at Freeport, one hour away, or Kittery, 15 minutes away; a burst of driving to the heart of the New Hampshire White Mountains for a days junket is one and one-half hours away.
