Fantastic Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for the Columbus Day weekend, for my son's wedding, and the house was PERFECT! Neat, clean and ready to go. The beds and pillows were very comfortable, more than enough towels were provided. Flat screen TVs in all of the rooms so everyone had a choice. I wish we had more time to use the amazing kitchen and BBQ area, but it was too busy a weekend. The house was easy to get to and close to all of the wedding events in town. We are already trying to find a time to return for another visit.

A Real "Home Away From Home"

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented for a week with our oldest two daughters, their husbands and our three young grandchildren. Tate and Erin have made this house feel like home. More than enough room , equipped with everything we needed, well decorated , great location and only short drive to the beach. The pool at house was GREAT for relaxing after mornings at the beach and fire pit at night for S'mores and stories!!! Tate and Erin were more than accommodating.

The York Street Retreat has an incredible "getting around" location. Not only is it easy to find after you get off of exit 7 in York, but its drivable and/or walkable to ALL that York Maine, York Beach, York Harbor, York Corner and York Village have to offer. Its an 8 minute drive to the Kittery Shopping Outlets, which you simply must do. Its a 10 minute walk to heart of the village or a 20 minute walk to York Harbor. You could be at either within a 2-4 minute drive. It only takes 5 minutes to drive to Long Sands Beach and 7 minutes to drive to Short Sands Beach where the Sands by the Sea Motel will welcome you with open arms! Down on Short Sands Beach we offer lots of shops and great restaurants, cafes, candy shops, wedding venues, bowling, arcades, miniature golf and even York's Wild Animal Kingdom and amusement park! Ogunquit is about a 15 minute drive north up route one and the new SoMe Brewing company is a 5 minute walk down York St, if breweries are something you like to experience. There is an amazing walk from here down to the beautiful York River, past the York Golf and Tennis Club that includes a number of historical sites such as the John Hancock Wharf. You can literally walk to "Off the Boat Lobsters" there and get fresh York Maine Lobster almost anytime you want it. The boats are literally coming in all day, it's awesome! There truly is no end to what can be experienced from this location. Trust me, I've lived in this house for 5 years and I own the largest motel in York Beach. You will love it here.
