Overview

York Harbor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1bath, sleeps 5

Quaint, refurbished 19-th century cottage in spectacular York Harbor. Easy stroll to gorgeous beach, the inner harbor, ocean cliff walk, nature trails along scenic York river. Walk to fine restaurants. Short drive to Long Sands beach and local attractions. Queen-size bed in master BR; 2 twins in second BR; 1 twin in third BR. Well equipped kitchen with place settings for six. All bedding provided. Free wireless internet and cable TV. No cleaning fee or other hidden fees.

Down East Magazine listed Harbor Beach as a 'local treasure', highlighting the secret pleasures of this special place, and correctly noting that 'there's a lot to gawk at, and a lot to do.' This gem of a beach is only a few minutes walk from your private cottage!! This is the beach that the locals use. It is not unusual to have the beach entirely to yourself for an early morning walk with coffee or a late evening stroll.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Barry or Kim Waddell

My family purchased this property in 1958. Kim and I took over in 2007. Fisherman's Cottage is the only property that we rent. It's a true 'Mom & Pop' business. The cottage is immediately adjacent to our home, so we have a vested interest in keeping the property in great shape. We can often be of immediate assistance if required. We are your neighbors as well as being the owners!

Why Barry or Kim Waddell chose Southern Coast of Maine

We love York Harbor and southern Maine. We live here year 'round and we enjoy sharing all that this area has to offer with our guests.

What makes this cottage unique

Quiet, off the main road, but still an easy stroll to beach, river, restaurants. Perfect for couples or families with small children.

Wonderful, Comfortable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed a week's stay. The location is excellent: very short walk and you are on the beach; you are on a quiet side street (we had friends that rented a house very close to this cottage and complained about the noise, but you don't have to worry about that here!); near many of the local attractions (but not in the middle of a busy tourist strip). Our two children (10 and 13) enjoyed playing in the outdoor area. We would definitely recommend this location, whether you are looking for a comfortable place to sit back and take it easy for a week or if you are wanting to enjoy meaning of the sites Maine has to offer. We would definitely stay here again.

Very Relaxing, perfect for a romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very relaxing two days. We enjoyed walking down to the beach, having a paddle in sea, walking the cliff path and the walk to the Wiggely Bridge. We had a nice day at The Nubble Lighthouse and the ice creams at Dunnes were huge! It was also nice just sitting outside the cottage watching the wildlife. It was a very peaceful location. The cottage had everything we needed with a bonus of a reclining couch. Barry and Kim, the owners live next door and are very friendly and helpful. We would love to go back some day soon.

Charming!

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a weekend stay at Fisherman's Cottage. Kim and Barry are wonderful and have made this cottage inviting and cozy. You'll have everything you need when you stay here. There are many local attractions within walking distance - we loved the Cliff Walk, the Wiggly Bridge, and the Ship's Cellar Pub!

What a Beautiful Place!

  • 5 of 5

We will never stay anywhere else! The owners were fabulous and attended to our every need in addition to giving us some great tips as to what to do locally. The cottage was cozy, well-equipped, and the perfect blend of character with modern amenities like high speed Internet. We loved sitting on the porch and picnic tables. I promise you will love this place and not be disappointed.

excellent place to stay in york harbor

  • 5 of 5

Barry and Kim are excellent hosts. They thought of everything including providing a detailed book on the area and making sure we had beach toys and beach chairs. The house is just a five minute walk to the beach. It's a smaller beach than some of the others but it is more than big enough for a week especially if you have little kids and appreciate not having to put everyone into the car and look for parking. The house is small and the bathroom is on the first level but we found it totally comfortable for a week with three small kids and having a nice yard out front with a picnic table really helped.
