A Great Place For A Large Family To Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay at Whiting Cottage! The "cottage" was huge and had more than enough beds and bathrooms to accommodate the ten of us. Jeannie was very welcoming and showed us where everything was located in the house and she also recommended some fine restaurants. Having five full bathrooms and five showers made getting ready for the day very easy. The bedrooms were comfortable for sleeping even without air conditioning. Ceiling fans and cool night breezes from the nearby ocean worked very well for us. The house has a huge front porch where we spent a lot of time during early evening hours and most mornings before going to the beach. And the large yard provided plenty of room for the kids to play. Our family highly recommends a stay at Whiting Cottage.

Great Spot for our extended Family

  • 5 of 5

A week in York Harbor with our extended family provided perfect weather and the perfect house for us! The popular long sands and short sands beaches are minutes away but we enjoyed the short walk along the cliff walk to York Harbor beach. It's a real hidden gem, just as nice as the other two without the crowds. The house with all it's bedrooms and bathrooms allowed everyone plenty of individual space and with the windows open and fans going at night we had very comfortable evenings. We had all our family time and meals on the amazing front porch. I can't imagine how the week would have been without our favorite gathering place. If you have a large group that is not looking to be right on the water, this house is the perfect alternative. No issues with the deposit refund, the house was clean and the kitchen and outdoor grill fit our needs for the week. The pictures on this site accurately portray the property and the large front and side yards allow for plenty of kid space. Thank you to Jeanne and David from our entire family group!!

Amazing house in an amazing location.

  • 5 of 5

My entire family- 10 adults, 3 teenagers and 4 kids under 6 stayed in this beautiful home for a week. One would think 17 people under one roof would be a bit overcrowded but this was not the case. There was ample sleeping space, eating space and relaxation space. The house had everything we needed and more. There were lots of extra touches like a garden, lawn games and videos for the entire family. We walked to York Harbor Beach every day (we put the little ones in a wagon although they could handle the walk as well) and drove to York Beach or the village. Rarely did we eat out because the kitchen and house were so nice that we all enjoyed having our meals at the house, usually on the porch. The bedrooms were all quiet and those who went to bed early were not kept up by the night owls. The owners were extremely helpful, friendly and welcoming and did a great job at making the house feel like our own. This house is beautiful and had everything we needed to make our extended family vacation extremely memorable. The porch alone makes renting the house worth it! We would go back every year if we could!

Perfect house for family summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house could not have been more perfect for my family's vacation. We were five adults and three kids (ages 9, 4, and 2) and had room to spare in this clean, homey, well-kept "cottage". Every detail was considered by the owner...well supplied kitchen, tissues in every bathroom, towels in abundance, immaculately clean, videos and indoor and outdoor games for the entire family. Ten minute walk to a beautiful beach that wasn't nearly as crowded as most of the other beaches we saw. Charming historic York right down the street. Big yard for the kids to run around in. The photos barely do it justice, the home is even more beautiful and spacious than the pictures can show and the owner was easy to get in touch with and work with. It was just perfect...thank you for a wonderful vacation!!

Family Reunion, 13 of us! Fantastic rental.

  • 5 of 5

We had a glorious July week at this amazing home minutes from the beach in York Harbar. Ours is a family of serious cooks and we found the roomy kitchen perfectly appointed. The lawn is large enough for a long game of all-terrain bacci or cut-throat croquet, (both sets provided). Every room, bathroom, porch, nook and corner of this spacious house is deeply considered and beautifully decorated. The couple who own it are both friendly and gracious. It was a delight all the way around. Martha would give it a twinkling wink. I give it 5 stars.

Wedding Week Success!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I rented this cottage for our wedding party last week. It was spacious, lovely, clean, and had everything we could need for a week of wedding fun! We were able to have a lovely bbq that had about 30 people in the house. We had people coming and going the whole week, enjoying the giant porch, playing croquet and bocce ball on the lawn, and chatting in the living room. It was the perfect spot for the 13 of us that were sleeping there. Everyone had privacy and each room had its own bathroom which is exactly what we all needed when getting ready the morning of the wedding. Our parents stayed at a hotel in Ogunquit but somehow always ended up at the cottage, saying that they loved it so much they couldn't stay away.

We absolutely recommend this house to anyone that needs lots of space. It was a short walk to the beach and a short drive to Fun-O-Rama (our favorite place).

Jeanne and David were so sweet and did such an awesome job of making us feel at home in their home.
