About Kevin Breen

Our family has spent summers in York Harbor since 1948, spending endless days on one the most beautiful in Maine. We are lucky enough to live in York and hope you too will enjoy what York has to offer.

Kevin Breen purchased this house in 2014

Why Kevin Breen chose York Harbor

We are excited to have purchased this historic property in 2014. We are busy updating the interior to provide the coastal feel it deserves. The highly sought after location of the house is at the top of the hill that runs down to the beach, allowing you to easily go back and forth without the bother of loading a car. It is also a 2 minute walk to the York Harbor Inn and Stage Neck Inn which host many weddings and have restaurants on site. A unique house in a unique location.

Great family gathering

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 family members, three generations spent a comfortable three days at the Woodbridge cottage. We happened to pick the first cold weekend of the year but the home was warm ,clean and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. There was enough space for the football watcher to enjoy the game without disturbing the folks that were otherwise engaged.

There were plenty of local attractions, beach walking and seafood eating. We really enjoyed the Cliff Walk.

Kevin answered our questions promptly and provided a great written description of the local history and attractions.

We were able to park four cars in the yard and there was also alternate parking available a short distance away. The curve just past the driveway did make it tricky to get out of the driveway but the passing cars were very curtious when our "lookouts" motioned for them to slow down.

Thanks Kevin for providing us with a gathering place for or memorable family gathering.

Great Location for a "Girls" Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This house was the perfect place for our 60 year old "girls" getaway! We loved the spaciousness and the location! It was great to be able to walk to the beach and nearby restaurants. It is conveniently located to many other restaurants, beaches, shops and the theater, too. The roomy front porch was enjoyed morning, afternoon and evening, whether relaxing or sipping our favorite beverage! The only drawback was that our time there was too short!

The awesome house in York, Maine.

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome and we could see the ocean/beach from our front porch. We could walk to the beach in 2 minutes or less. We had a welcome package sent to my email that provided all the information on the house, places to eat, locations to visit, events to attend. Was a great weekend get-away.

Outstanding Family Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a tremendous time in Kevin's beautiful home. It was exactly as advertised with a great location, plenty of sleeping room (14, but we only had 10 + our dog) and very close to the beach. It was also a stone's throw to shopping outlets in Kittery and great restaurants in Wells and Ogonquit. Kevin was a great source of information and accommodating to any small issue that we had reason to reach out. Well worth the cost to rent this beautiful and well maintained home. We hope to come back again with the family next year!
