Perfect home in a perfect location. Home was very clean and had all amenities for staying an extended period of time. Less than .5 mile walk to Short Sands Beach and York Beach area restaurants and shopping. Very dog friendly area. We look forward to staying again at the Irish Mist.

Very Pleased, loved the location

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised with the great open floor plan and set up of this vacation cottage. Perfect amount of space for six of us and two boxers. The wrap around porch was a wonderful place to relax (both humans and pups) with a distant view of the ocean. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need, even had a Keurig (super big bonus) Very comfortable and clean, with plenty of pillows, blankets, ceiling fans and window fans. Books to read, games to play and a huge grill. Great neighbors and quiet side street, easy walk to short sands, long sands, downtown and the nubble! We will be recommending to family and we will stay again our next trip to York Beach! Thank you to the owners of The Irish Mist

Review from Cumming, Georgia

  • 5 of 5

Great Place for a family. It is wide open for entertaining, a great porch for enjoying the outdoors (always a nice breeze), and comfortable chairs to sit in. The owner is great and very hospitable. She loves animals so our dog was happy there. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. The grill is brand new and has all the options you need to cook. The beds are comfortable and the house has been updated. The lower level has all you will need for the beach. All in all this is a great place to go and relax on a vacation. You are only minutes from the village and the beach. We look forward to going again in 2014.

We found this property to be all that the ad promised. It is very neat and clean, with a very well equipped kitchen. The dining area, living room, and bedrooms are comfortable, with a homey feeling. The owners, Charlene and Tom, met us when we arrived, and answered all of our questions; they also told us to call if we needed any assistance.

In short, we would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a great, pet friendly vacation spot in southern Maine. It is an easy walk to the beach, shops, and restaurants, and the outlets in Kittery are a fifteen minute drive. Ogunquit, to the north, is also a short drive, with lots of shops and restaurants.

Take a trip and enjoy this cottage!
