Beautiful Rental Houses for Your York Beach Visit

York Beach is a lovely beach town on the east coast of Maine. You can get extra enjoyment out of a vacation in York Beach by staying in a rental house, cottage, or condo. These lovely properties include many facilities to make you feel more comfortable. Perks such as free parking, washing machines, pools, and outdoor grills are often included.

The Beach Is the Place to Be

The beach is divided into two areas by a peninsula that is home to a lighthouse. The Long Sands Beach is to the south and Short Sands is to the north. As their names imply, the Long Sands Beach is larger than the Short Sands Beach though both have their advantages. Long Sands beach has a designated area for surfing. Both beaches have metered parking areas, but it is harder to find a spot at Long Sands Beach. Both beaches also have their own bathhouses and lifeguards on duty from late June to Memorial Day. Long Sands Beach is located near houses and hotels which is nice for those staying at those properties. Short Sands Beach is located in walking distance to the downtown area, which is convenient if you want to grab lunch, play in the arcade, or stroll through the beach shops.

Visit Nubble Lighthouse

This lighthouse is accessible by driving or via a short walk. While you cannot go inside the lighthouse, it is still fun to look at, paint, or photograph. Parking is available near the lighthouse. You can walk around Nubble or walk on the trail on the south side to the shore. The adventurous may enjoy climbing on the giant rocks on the shore. You can bring a picnic lunch and go fishing if you choose to. In addition, a gift shop and restroom facilities are available.

Wild Kingdom Is Fun for All

York’s Wild Kingdom is part zoo and part amusement park. With many animals from all over the world, the zoo is known for its exotic species, including a White Bengal Tiger. This venue also has a variety of family rides, a haunted house, paddleboats, miniature golf, and a picnic area.

Weather in York Beach

The weather at York Beach is pleasantly warm in the summer and cold in the winter. The average winter temperatures are in the low 30s but can dip below 0F at times. Additionally, the area gets up to 49 inches of snow each year. The summer, however, is much warmer. The average summer temperatures are in the mid to upper 70s with highs in the 80s and 90s on some days. Spring and fall are moderate with temperatures in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. The best time to visit York Beach is in the summer when all of the attractions are open and the weather is warm. If you do not like the crowds, you may choose to visit in the shoulder seasons of late spring or early fall.

How to Get to York Beach

York Beach is easily located off of U.S. Route 1, on the coast of Maine. It is easily accessible by car though the road can get a little backed up at peak times. Rental cars are ideal for those who wish to pack extra items for their vacation and do not have a sufficiently sized vehicle of their own. If you wish to fly into the area, the Portsmouth International Airport in New Hampshire is the closest. It is only about 15 miles from York Beach. Train travelers can get off of the train in Wells, Maine, only 11 miles from York Beach. This is a fun beach town to visit.

Excellent Host

4 of 5
We ran into a snag for this trip when there were frozen pipes at the home due to the extreme cold during the weekend we had planned. Lance went out of his way to accommodate our large group of 8 adults and 9 children by offering his personal vacation home a few doors down. He checked in continuously to see how we were faring and although the weekend was not as expected and we cannot review the home we intended to rent, I would highly recommend working with Lance.

Charming and beautiful home

5 of 5
My six-member family and dog stayed here for a week, and could not be happier. The home is beautiful, comfortable, and immaculate. It has so much charm, and the layout with the master bedroom and bathroom on the main floor worked perfectly for my parents. Kevin was extremely helpful and communicative. We loved the house and neighborhood and hope to return!
