About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Now booking for the 2015 season.

Enjoy all that Maine's South Coast has to offer while you stay in charming 'Salt & Light' cottage located at the beginning of the Nubble. It is just minutes from Long and Short Sands Beaches, Ellis Park gazebo concerts, playground overlooking the ocean and quaint York Beach Center & Zoo (all less than a 10 min walk). Three bedrooms include 2 with queens and one with a full and twin.

Gourmet kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, 5 burner gas range, island that converts into a table for 8, separate bar area and skylights. This home has hardwood floors throughout (except Master has a wool carpet), lots of light, wonderful ocean breezes and is meticulously maintained. Outside the deck has a dining table and the patio is furnished with relaxing patio furniture and an oversized stainless steel gas grill.

'Foodies' will enjoy being a 15 minute drive to the famous and delicious restaurants in Ogunquit/Perkin's Cove including the James Beard award winning 'Arrow's' Restaurant (make your reservations well in advance). York is also the headquarters of 'Stonewall Kitchen' which offers fun cooking classes, shopping and a cafe.

Kids will enjoy watching salt water taffy being made at Goldenrod's Kisses and all will enjoy delicious Maine lobster and seafood at the many area restaurants. Take a scenic walk around the Nubble and enjoy Brown's ice cream, voted one of the USA's top 10 ice cream shops by USA Today.

Outlet shopping is 20 minutes south on Rt. 1 in Kittery and antiquing is in Cape Neddick on Route 1 North. Essex, MA, the antiquing capital of the East Coast, is also only 45 minutes away. Essex is also the home of 'Woodman's' where the fried clam was created. They are the best and gluten free.

Drive up scenic Rt. 1A to view Maine's majestic coast, tour historic Portsmouth, NH, take a day trip to Boston, feed animals at York's Wild Animal Kingdom, take an early morning run along Long Sands Beach, enjoy an evening concert at the Ellis Park Gazebo, attend a play at the Ogunquit Play House, walk along York Harbour's Cliff Walk or Ogunquit's Marginal Way or just relax on the beach or in the back yard - Salt & Light provide's the perfect vacation for your family & friends.

Linens can be provided for an extra fee ($100). Linens include bath towels, beach towels, sheets, bath mat and dish towels. Beach chairs are provided. Backyard has a patio, deck and large gas grill.

Enjoyable Family Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week vacationing at this home. It is located in a nice neighborhood and easily accessable

to both beaches and downtown. The home is small, yet feels spacious with the open vaulted kitchen. Plenty of room for our young adult children. The 1/2 bath is a plus! No washer and dryer was a little inconvenient, but not a problem. The yard and deck are nice and the patio area had very comfy seating!

The owner Bonnie was very easy to communicate with. We recommend this home for your vacation.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time vacationing here in York Beach, ME. The house is within walking distance of both beaches, restaurants, the zoo and the historic downtown of York. It has everything you need and more in the kitchen for cooking and entertaining and what a cool table! The house is updated and very clean. The backyard is spacious with lots of room for the kids to play outside and there is an outside dining area with a grill. We can't wait to go back!

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Salt & Light each summer for the past few years and just love it. The location is excellent. You can walk to everything yet it is on a quiet street so you don't have to deal with beach traffic. The kitchen is wonderful to cook in (if you want to cook on vacation). We enjoyed grilling out and eating on the deck. It does not have laundry but we did not find this to be an issue since we were only there for a week and there is a laundromat very close by in the little town center. Our grandkids loved the back yard and being able to walk easily to the beach.
