About the property

2 bedrooms, sleeps 4 - 7

Great cottage on a quiet dead end road, located between Short Sands and the Nubble Light. Five minute walk to Short Sands one way and Brown's ice cream the other! First floor has living room, dining room, sun room, kitchen, bathroom with tub/shower and laundry room with full size washer and dryer. There is a small porch off the back great for morning coffee in the sun! Upstairs has two bedrooms.

Large private yard, most of it on the side of the cottage; with enough room for a family cookout (gas grill in the back yard) and parking for 3 cars.

There's a gas heater on the main level for those chilly 'off season' nights.

The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, etc. We provide blankets and pillows but you must bring your own sheets and towels.

Free Wireless Internet and Long Distance Calls (within the US).

York's Wild Kingdom: Within walking distance is York's Wild Kingdom and amusement park.

Great Family Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage. The first thing you notice is how neat and clean it is. I loved the large grass area and the beautiful patio out back. It was so easy to walk or ride our bikes to the beach and town. This cottage has everything you need for a great vacation. It was well equipped for cooking meals. It had a nice living/family area. Sue was a pleasure to work with. We would love to rent this place again!!

Cozy summer cottage -- perfect for a get away

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying at this home. It is a lovely home with plenty of space for a family. There is a large yard that allows for some running around and plenty of opportunities to eat outside (there is a table inside too if the weather doesn't cooperate). The kitchen has just about anything you need and there is a grill outside to allow for some summertime grilling. This was the perfect set-up for our family. We used the little red wagon to get back and forth to the beach everyday and returned to the house for naptime. It's a lovely, family cottage which you can tell is full of family memories.

Great location for great beach week

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with my 7 year old daughter with family and friends visiting during week. Everyone thought this was a great find.

This home is truly a five minute walk to beach with Long sands very close too. The house was impressively clean. The owners thought of everything to make my beach vacation convenient. Including a wagon for transporting goods to and from beach or for giving wagon rides in yard.

This house is very homey and relaxing. The front and back porch are both great to hang out. Very nice grill and patio too.

I was able to park car and enjoy a peaceful week. Everthing needed in walking distance. Very close to beach and downtown shopping.

Enjoyed the arcade. Fun time for little and "big" kids. Had fun outing at the animal kingdom. Had a delicious meal at Lobster Cove at Long Sands. Right across from beach at high tide. Staff great.

Sue very quick at responding when making plans. Pleasurable to communicate with her. Made everything easy.

Would stay here again

Last Minute Deal

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute trip to celebrate the end of summer and my husband's birthday. The house is in a great location, has a lot of character and was very clean. It had everything we needed to make us feel right at home.

Great find.

I recently stayed for a couple nights in the cottage and I have to say it was just as advertised!!!! Being as this was my first experience using this site, I was a little "hesitant", but I cannot say enough good things about the owners Glenn and Sue! The whole process of securing the cottage couldnt have been more seemless! And talk about location!! A 10 minute walk (tops) to short sands and downtown York, which includes "Fun o Rama" and York Kingdom. And no more than a 10 minute walk to Nubble!!!! The cottage has every amenity you will need and then some!!!

If you are looking for a nice cottage in a prime location with great owners you are not going to do much better!!!!
