Lovely long weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Moonbeam Manor was lovely. There was more than enough space for the 10 of us. While the weather was rainy and chilly, we had an incredible time. When the rain subsided, we made good use of the outdoor fire pit making s'mores. We most certainly will return!

We really enjoyed the property

  • 5 of 5

Easy access from BOS or MHT airports - close enough to Portsmouth / Portland and places in between. Groceries near by, plenty of restaurants to fit all tastes. The area is walk-able. The property itself fit our needs entirely, spacious and well appointed. We were not able to use the pool but I am pretty sure that when it is open it would be an added bonus to staying here. The reservation process was smooth.

There is ample parking if you are to have more than one vehicle.

We did not use the grill area, but did burn a lot of the provided firewood. The evenings outside were pleasant.

There are two covered porches which are comfortable.

This is an older home so there is a lack of closet space and places to hang clothes - did suggest to Alexandra that coat racks and/or hooks on the walls would be helpful her response was favorable. Some rooms do have luggage racks.

The only wish list I had was a bigger TV in the family room - only for football :)

We would stay again without hesitation.

Wonderful Week at York

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Moonbeam Manor. We had two small children and six adults. The pool was a big hit as were the beaches. It is easy walking to delightful beaches with stretches of sand and rock outcroppings. We collected crabs and shells with the children and also went to the zoo.

The house was comfortable and the kitchen roomy enough so that multiple meals could be prepared at the same time. There is an outdoor porch that over looks the pool plus a patio right by the pool.

A lovely spot.

We are happy we selected Moonbeam Manor and would return in a heart beat.

WONDERFUL FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults and 5 children had a wonderful stay at Moonbeam Manor. The home is beautiful, very comfortable, and clean, with a well equipped gourmet kitchen. Porch, patio, fire pit, and pool are great for entertaining, and the grounds are nicely kept and private. We appreciated having long and short beaches, York Harbor, a grocery store, and restaurants in close proximity. Ogunquit, Kennebunkport, and Portsmouth are short drives. Alexandra was great, and made the reservation process easy. We hope to return soon.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Moonbeam Manor. The house was great for a large group and family summer vacation. Close to York harbor and long and short sands beaches. Short drive to golf, Ogunquit, Portland and Portsmouth NH and other fun things to do. The pool and patio were great and the grounds were very private. We will be back!
