About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible sofa bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

CLINTON COTTAGE NEAR LONG SANDS BEACH AND FAMOUS NUBBLE LIGHTHOUSE- This spacious quaint cottage sits on 1/3 of an acre and is located only 4 houses in from Long Sands Beach, the main York beach destination in southern Maine. This short distance provides the traveler with a short walk to the beach added with a quiet, relaxing place to return to.The ocean is clearly visible as one enters the property from the spacious driveway area. BOOK DIRECT W THE OWNER AND SAVE!

The cottage living space is 800 square feet and consists of a great room concept (combined open LR, DR, kitchen areas), 2

large bedrooms (12’ x 15’ each), and one bathroom (w/ shower only). An additional 10' x 17' screened-in-porch and adjacent deck makes this the perfect spot for relaxing in the shade or sun. Entry to the cottage is celebrated through the screen room and an enclosed porch lined on 2 sides with windows, making this the perfect area for morning coffeee or evening happy hour. And the outdoor shower is perfect for washing off the beach sand and salt water.

The yard is landscaped with large attractive planting areas that attract birds and butterflies and a slate walkway leading to a front lower deck. The outside deck has ample seating for over 8 for entertaining. A large grill accompanies the deck and is ready to cook the perfect meal!

York is located near the Kittery shopping area with over 150 outlet stores, the historic York District, and the beach-boardwalk area (home-made salt water taffy is a must!). York is located in southern Maine off Highway 95 and is easily reached via the Boston MA airport (about a 60 min drive north) and the Manchester NH airport (about a 45 min drive east).

A perfect day could include a leisurely (or brisk!) walk or bike ride to the Nubble Lighthouse while enjoying the scenic views of the Coast of Maine, then lunch along the beach soaking in the sun and waves, followed by a little shopping at the outlets, closing with a nice dinner and show in Ogunquit or York Center!! Ahhh, vacation - this IS how life should be lived!

About Tracy Clinton

I was raised in Cumberland and Camden Maine through my grade school and high school, then college years and my career took me out of state and across country. I enjoy visiting my cottage in the spring and fall to open it for the summer and then close it after each season. While there, I go to the beach, take walks, visit family, do bike rides, eat and drink with friends and just enjoy life as a true hedonist - enjoying life's purest pleasures!! I hope you feel the same relaxing aura about my cottage as I do!

Tracy Clinton purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Tracy Clinton chose York Beach

Much of my rationale for buying in this location is being close to family, the beach, easy to get to and from (i.e. - airport access), and the area offers so much variety of life! It can be relaxing if you wish or full of activities!

What makes this cottage unique

Good food/drink/friends/music/shows/beach/sun and tons more! - such as shopping, boating, swimming, antiqueing, fall leaves, summer laughs, family gatherings, nice neighbors, etc, etc...

Another Perfect Summer

  • 5 of 5

We've rented this cottage for 2 years running and will continue to do so. The proximity to the beach is unbeatable at this price point, and while the cottage is quaint, it is in no way cramped. Great yard and gardens, outdoor dining on the decks, comfortable and large bedrooms.

Tracy is great and easy to deal with, we love coming to York!

Absolutely outstanding....quiet, quaint, CLEAN, comfortable....would go back 100 times over.

Short walk to the beach (5 minutes), quiet road and neighbors. Sleeps 4 comfortably but you can, we did, sleep 6 comfortably with the pull out sofa. New grill, plenty of room on 2 decks outside, meticulous garden/flower area(s). Long Sands beach is great, small at high tide but still great even then. High School track right across the street if interested in running. Health club 3 miles away that does 1 week memberships...Resteraunts all over the place...Needless to say, we had a blast.
