Perfect little get away

  • 5 of 5

If you don't need a lot of space and want to spend your time exploring York Beach and the surrounding area I would definitely recommend. If you are looking to spend a lot of time in and cooking gourmet meals then this is not for you. The cottage is clean and has everything you need to feel comfortable. The owners are very friendly, available and accommodating.

Perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were so fortunate to have friends recommend this cottage to us. It is perfect for a summer getaway. It is super close to the beach and very clean. Even though it is compact in size, it has everything that you need for a week's stay. We will definitely be back again. Thank you for letting us enjoy your cottage. We had an amazing vacation.

Another fantastic week in York!

  • 5 of 5

We can't express how incredible this rental was for our family! It had everything we needed, was very clean and the owners could not be more accommodating. We had dinners on the deck, easy walks to the beach and shops and had everything that we needed for our week away. This is our second year renting and can't wait to rent again next year!

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful vacation here! The house was very, very clean, and had everything you would need. The location was great. I had a 1 year old and a 4 year old, and the walk to the beach was short (maybe 1 or 2 minutes). My daughter loved the boardwalk, the playground, and the zoo/rides, all within easy walking distance for a 4 year old. Deb was available for questions and very nice and pleasant to deal with. Thanks so much for a great stay!

Excellent location, very clean and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

The home has a great view of the beach. You can time high tide before heading to the beach. We were able to walk to the town even with a three year old. It's a compact home And offers three season porch and a nice large deck outside. We didn't grill but wish we had brought food and not a lot of grocery options. There are a lot of eating out options in a 3 minute walk. They have fine dinning to pizza and clam shacks.

We also walked to the animal kingdom. The kids loved the petting zoo and the rides. It was reasonably priced. The adult played some video games and batting cages.

The home owner came to meet us and was flexible and welcoming. She was honest and easy to work with. We got our deposit back quickly and there was no surprises.

This charming cottage is a minute walk from Short Sands Beach. The town is filled with many dining selections ranging from Mexican to seafood to pizza to breakfast specialties to the famous Golden Rod! (don't forget the taffy)! Within a short walk is the York Wild Kingdom Zoo and Long Sands Beach. The most photographed lighthouse in the world (The Nubble) is just around the corner. The family will love searching for sea creatures, boogie boarding and the free nightly concerts at the bandstand. There is abundant shopping with the Kittery Outlets and the many quaint little shops in the village to the artist's flare of Ogunquit just 15 minutes north.
