Guestbook comments from the owner

Paula & Evelyn~ This cottage is so reflective of both of your amazing styles...and so special. We feel so lucky to have stayed here this week. We admired the views from all areas of the cottage, but especially the porch. We loved walking to the beach (it is such a pretty walk), visiting the stores...and eating lots of taffy! We also went to Kittery, Portsmouth & Ogunquit! We can not wait to come back next year to make even more memories.

Our family and another stayed at The Bird's Nest for our family wedding and vacation we took to York. The house is beautiful- the ocean views from the rooms, the screened porch for morning coffee or a light snooze, the full kitchen and double bathrooms, it was truly gorgeous. Half a mile from beach and town fun, it's the prime spot! Paula was so helpful during the process- we planned our wedding right on Short Sands Beach, and Paula was so patient and kind with my millions of questions. She was attentive and informative, and very easy to work with. We can't wait for our next opportunity to go!

A Dream come true!

  • 5 of 5

This place was a dream come true! It had everything we were looking for, comfort, quite, relaxation and close to things to do! My husband and I stayed last September for our Honeymoon! After a long 18 months of preparing for our wedding this was the perfect place to continue the magic of getting married and relax after it all! My husband caught a striped bass off the beach our first night in! We ate on the screened porch for every meal, overlooking the beautiful ocean! There was fresh cut mint on the table and a little welcome gift of jam (which my husband loved) and was such a sweat gesture! We felt so comfortable and at home! Lots of things to do and see close by! I can't wait to return and continue returning with family and friends, such a lovely place we look forward to sharing!

The house was fully stocked with everything we could ask for and more! Beach chairs, outside shower, etc. We felt so at home, the place is so charming and we LOVED the big screened porch for sipping our morning coffee & tea and flipping through a magazine! Surly a place to enjoy and unwind!
