Description from owner

Delightful year-round cottage on the 'Nubble' in York, Maine. Perfectly situated in a friendly and safe neighborhood - far enough from the waterfront hustle and bustle but close enough to hear the ocean roaring and feel the cooling breezes. A perfect getaway for families.

The house is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Dining table seats 6-8; U-shaped kitchen with island seating for three. Any extras can spill out onto the adjacent deck which gets the morning sun. Large and comfortable living area. Downstairs back bedroom is great for kids...sleeps three in beds plus has a pull-out sofa bed. Additional first-floor bedroom with double bed and large upstairs master bedroom with a king-size bed. Large bathroom with tub/shower, washer/dryer and great over-sized outdoor shower area.

Beds: 1 King Bed, 1 Double Bed, 2 Twin Beds, 1 Sofa Bed

Hidden Gem near the Ocean
This is a cottage that feels like a second home in such a beautiful area of Maine. I love the location, the proximity to the ocean and the overall distribution of the space, because everyone can be doing their own thing without being on top of each other. My favorite spot in the whole house is the outdoor shower and the outside deck. The house is well kept, impeccable conditions and the nearby activities, attractions and restaurants provide multiple options for all tastes. I appreciate the fact this cottage provides all you will need to have a fun and relaxing time at the beach. Enjoy!

Stunning Maine Vacation
This home is not only well appointed, but well located with a short walk to gorgeous Long Sands Beach & historic Nubble Light House. It truly felt like more than a rental house, our home-away- from home . Tasteful and immaculate furnishings & amenities, big yard and wonderful deck which was another great plus. Perfect location to take in all that is within walking distance but also to easily explore the the many things to see and do in the area and beyond. The owners were incredibly responsive and caring, we couldn't ask for a nicer family vacation. Thank you!

Perfect York Cottage
York Beach is a family favorite vacation spot of ours. The area is very family friendly and there's always something to do. However, over the years our family has grown and we were in need of a larger cottage. Thankfully we found this gem! The owner Chris was very nice and accommodating. She was available even during the week when our toddler had a miner mishap! She was very understanding and made us feel so much better, even insisting we come back again! The cottage was everything we had hoped for and more. Hoping to return very soon! Thanks Chris and family for the great time!

Worth Coming Back To!
We stayed at this cottage for our 20th anniversary back in 2006 and with only a couple of exceptions due to family emergencies we have come back for our anniversary ever since. This year we are hoping to spend our 28th anniversary at the cottage! Located a block and a half from the famous Nubble Point Light House and only minutes from either long or short sands beaches this is the PERFECT cottage for a getaway or week's vacation. Jim and Chris have been awesome hosts and have treated us very, very well over the years. Give the cottage a try, you won't be disappointed!

Our Little Ocean Gem - Five Stars for sure!!
We rented the cottage last June arriving to find it well equipped, so clean and spotless. We enjoyed being so close to the many beaches and to the very famous Nubble and enjoyed all the amenities to York, the downtown, its many beaches and yes, the shopping. In the cottage everything worked flawlessly and most of our meals were enjoyed on the deck. Caring for my family was a breeze as my children took advantage of the many amenities and things were so close by. We had one rainy day, and we were able to enjoy movies, and going to see the sites. Chris, the owner left all information on nearby attractions and restaurants that were close by. I'm looking forward to another stay this summer as we were so able to have a wonderful mix of excitement and quiet nights so near the ocean.

Best Beach House Ever!
What a fabulous little gem on the Nubble! The owners have put a lot of love into this house, and take great care to make sure you find comfort, clean, and all the basics you need to have the vacation you hope for. The sun and shade deck and backyard are perfect for grilling and relaxing after a day at the beach. A three minute walk to gorgeous Nubble Light, an ice cream or dinner at Fox's. Just a short drive to places like Kittery, Ogunquit or Portsmouth are just a few places to visit. A special treat for us is then falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks. Even a little bit of rain allows you to relax on the sweetest little covered porch with rockers to read or just take in the beauty and sounds that surround you. For 10 years my family has returned to vacation here at our home away from home, and we continue to look forward to many more. I can't recommend it enough! Thank you for continuing to open up your home to us!

Just doesn't get any better...
This is the second time we have rented this vacation home & is it far above a cottage. Large, airy & spacious so if you do catch a rainy day you do not feel confined. Just the kitchen and dinning area alone is twice the size of a motel room (hint: grab the back kids bedroom first, you'll see why). The full time neighbors are fantastic, one baked us muffins and another offer us a car when I had a problem with mine. A short walk to Nubble Light, Foxes restaurant and Browns ice cream. 3-5 minute drive to Long & Short Sand beach or the village (hint: take "rolls" of quarters for the meters as parking tickets are and industry there), 15 minutes to Kittery Outlets. We have vacationed in Maine for 28 years, 23 @ York Beach as it is very family friendly and safe. The stays at Chris's home; well "it just doesn't get any better".
