Stunning old home!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent the weekend after Thanksgiving here. The home is beautiful. The location was perfect for walks along the beach and Ogunquit is only a 15 min ride away. We had dinner at the Cape Neddick Inn on Saturday night. We just enjoyed being together. The Turkey Trot k 5 and lighting of the Nubble were great ways to kick off the holiday season. Marge the neighbor was wonderful and so helpful. Tim and Carol were so accommodating and made the whole process so easy!! Thank you for the welcome note and bottle of wine!! We loved it!

Excellent; experience could not be better!

  • 5 of 5

We walked into an absolutely beautiful home decorated with a tasteful attention to detail. We are a group of five women who have been friends since we met in college over 25 years ago. We have been renting a home for one weekend each fall.

This home by far exceeded our expectations and is also our favorite out of all the homes we have stayed in. It was very inviting and cozy, with an interesting antique or a modern piece of decor to admire everywhere we looked. The house was in pristine condition and immaculately clean. All five of us slept well in the comfortable beds. We also enjoyed cooking in the well equipped kitchen.

We would love to stay here again next year and recommend it to any family or group looking for a comfortable, beautiful home with plenty of room that is close to beaches and restaurants and shops.

A wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The property was extremely clean, well decorated and inviting. A great deal of thought went into the decorating, and it was a wonderful place to stay.

With just a short walk to everything, you didn't have to drive anywhere and was truly a "home away from home."

Bachelorette Party!

  • 5 of 5

I can not thank Tim and Carol enough for their amazing rental! To start, the location was outstanding, a close walk to the beach and an easy walk home from a night out in downtown York! Each morning we enjoyed breakfast on the porch and a nice walk to Nubble lighthouse, each night the hot tub was perfect for relaxation after dinner. The theme's for every room were beautiful, and we had not one complaint. We were welcomed to the home with a bottle of bubbly on the counter (we will save that for the wedding week) and a very sweet card. We also enjoyed reading on the history of the house and the history of York (plenty of books to look at). Tim and Carol also left pamphlets for different recommendations close by (we took their advice for a dinner location and loved the live music and food at Inn on the Blues). As for Tim and Carol themselves, they made the process of beach house renting so easy, they were quick to respond and helped in every singly way, very accommodating to a group of women's needs! . I would recommend this house to anyone, it is family friendly, plenty of space, VERY CLEAN and just perfect for any occasion!

Wonderful Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic house for our annual girls weekend! 7 women in our early 50's and we could not have had a better time. The location was perfect for going to the beach and also walking into the town of York. We noticed right away how clean it was and the handwritten note and bottle of wine with the personalized label on it was such a thoughtful touch. The rooms were all decorated so beautifully and every time we went into a room, we'd notice another charming detail that we hadn't seen before. Tim and Carol were so easy to work with and we hope to return next fall!
