                                                            This was our 3rd or 4th year at this property. Great home! Excellent location! And really good owner!

                                                            Love walking to Long Sands, Short Sands and the Nubble Lighthouse.

                                                            Property is well furnished with everything you need. Thanks for another great year!

                                                            Charlene T.

                                                            This home was very cute. It was very clean and the kitchen is fabulous. Bonnie is very nice to deal with. I had a few emails, and phone calls with Bonnie and she returned my emails and phone calls promptly. I would recommend this home as a beach rental in York. It is perfectly located to Short Sands Beach and as well to Long Sands. We enjoyed our stay.

                                                            Charlene T.

                                                            Perfect Location in a Beautiful House

                                                            J E.Albany, NY

                                                            My family and I loved the house. The location was perfect, right between long and short sands on a quite side street. The house was well kept with good size bedrooms and a beautiful kitchen with all the cookware provided. We spent several nights on the deck in the evening enjoying the ocean air. We also made alot use out of the well maintained grill, grilling up burgers, chicken, and pizzas. The only drawback to the house was no washer and dryer however a local laundromat provides full service cleaning and folding of your laundry so that you dont have to spend your vacation cleaning clothes. I would highly recommend this house to other interested families. The owner is always quick to answer any questions as well.

                                                            Gail C.

                                                            This was our third year at the 'Nubble Cottage' and we've never been disappointed. It's so easy to get down to either beach in York and a comfortable walk to Nubble Lighthouse. The cottage itself is equipped with everything you need and is quite comfortable. We love having our meals outside on the deck.

                                                            Enjoyable Family Vacation Rental

                                                            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.

                                                            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!
