Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, outdoor hot water shower, sleeps 4

Quintessential Southern Maine cottage in the center of Cape Neddick harbor with a BOLD view of two lighthouses. Great frontage and private location less than 100 feet from the ocean. Two bedrooms downstairs. Ceiling fans in all downstairs rooms. Fall asleep listening to the sound of the ocean less than 100 feet away at high tide. Fireplace, TV, VCR, high speed cable internet, DVD, washer and dryer. Deck has round table with umbrella. Large parking lot in back. During low tides children will have fun exploring the numerous tidal pools. A local beach is only 200 yards away. THE TOWN OF YORK BEACH AND SURROUNDING LARGE PUBLIC BEACHES ARE LESS THAN A MILE AWAY. Many fine restaurants in the area including one a short walk across the street. Canoe available for use. This cottage offers the best ocean view in Maine!

Beach locations: There is a small private beach several hundred yards away on the north side of the cottage. The campground behind the cottage uses this beach. 1/2 mile away is the center of York Beach and Short Sands Beach. The gorgeous one and a half mile long Long Sands Beach is only 1.5 miles away. All these beaches are within walking distance or metered parking is available at the later two.

Stores: There is a large Hannefords food store with great selection only 4 miles south on route 1. A little further along are the Kittery Outlets - virtually all name brands at discounted prices. Numerous fine restaurants are within a short drive. These include famous hamburg joints to really upscale places like the Cliff House. I keep a number of menus of places I recommend in a folder in the cottage. The center of York Beach is only a half mile away and has a Funarama, Animal Forest Park, The famous Golden Rod restaurant and candy store. There is also a candlepin bowling alley in town. On the other side of long sands Beach you will find all the town offices along with a Public library. There are free tennis courts open to the public at the high school. There is a private golf course only 2 miles north of the cottage. York Harbor and Ogunquit are about 5 miles away. Deep sea fishing and ocean cruises can be lined up at either place.

History: This cottage was purchased by my great grandfather back in the 1930's. It has been a family treasure ever since. My family and I use it when it is not rented out. It is the most beautiful spot in Maine! Most other coastal property has been renovated with large houses and mansions since the price of the property is so very expensive. This is one of the few small original cottages left in the area. It has all the charm! Notice from the coastal view that it has a comparatively large frontage affording a lot of privacy. The tidal pools in front are a joy to anyone under 12 years old - and an equal joy for you to share with the youngster! We hope that you enjoy your stay at this property as much as we do.

Great 4th of July at Cape Neddick

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was great. Large living area with beautiful view! Spent most of our time relaxing and entertaining on front deck. Went to local beaches twice,but was very content to stay right at cottage. WIFI worked great and it was nice at the end of the day go inside and watch the ball game. Thanks Bruce and Meg . Hope to be back.

Charming, cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We felt comfortable from the moment we walked in. Cozy and comfortable, with many little extras. Comfortable beds, living room seating, and great kitchen. Homegrown tomatoes on vines right outside the door, and blueberry bushes brimming with the largest berries we'd ever seen. Beautiful view of the tide coming in, right from the porch. Very close to York beaches, Nubble Lighthouse and only a 45 minute ride up I-95 to Fortunes Rocks beach where family was staying the same week.

I'd highly recommend this cottage for a very nice beach vacation.

A glorious retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this wonderful rustic cottage for 4 years now. It was our luckiest find ever. The cottage looks out over a cove where the vista includes 2 lighthouses. You can go to sleep and wake up with the sound of the ocean. Our time there has been the most peaceful and restful vacations we have ever had. We go in, unpack and mostly never see another soul for the entire time, except for the occasional lobsterboat. If you want to eat out, there are several fine restaurants nearby. The cottage is always clean and we have even brought our cats twice. And the landlords are very easy to work with. If you want a getaway where you can relax and spend endless hours reading and gazing out on the ocean, this is the place.

Ocean Front Cottage

  • 5 of 5

A very lovely cottage in a private area right at the ocean, it is as good as it gets. A very nice kitchen ,a washer and dryer ,everything you need to be comfortable . The view is to die for! The owners are wonderful. We will go back .The cottage is very close to The Lobster Pound Restaurant, not far from the Union Bluff hotel and restaurant . Nubble Light one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world. Side trips to Boston, Cape Cod, Portland, and New Hampshire were on our agenda.

But the Star of the trip was the View.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I found the cottage the perfect vacation for our multi-generational family. It's close to York for the younger family members and the cottage is quiet for the older generation that just enjoys watching the ocean views. The cottage is exactly as described and well maintained. The owner couldn't be more nice or helpful and sent many recommendations for local restaurants as well as a book kept in the cottage with sightseeing information. The Lobster Pound Restaurant is a short walk from the cottage and worth the trip. My grandson found the tidal pools to be endlessly fascinating, finding small snails and crabs to observe then release every day. He couldn't wait for the tide to go out! I would recommend this property to families with school age children but smaller children would have difficulty with the steep staircase to the second floor. My family is all ready planning another trip to the cottage for next year.
