About the area

Just minutes to the seaside amenities, we live in a neighborhood setting, on the end of a quiet cul-de-sac joined by four other homes. Our property abuts conservation land with over 1.5 miles of marked nature trails. Perfect for hikers and nature enthusiasts. Our backyard is peaceful and serene overlooking protected woodlands, a pond and nature trails. Just jump in the car and go to any one of the four great beaches here in York. (Beaches are about 5 minutes from here.) Enjoy a morning or late afternoon walk, run, bike or stroll on the 3+ miles of safe sidewalks in the development, complete with ocean views at the top of the hill. Our deck is totally private for sun bathing and we are SO close to lots of picturesque New England destinations...the perfect spot for day-tripping guests. And let us take a moment to introduce Ogunquit village. Ogunquit village is about a minute drive from our house, and there is a lot to do there including the Ogunquit Playhouse; Broadway on the Beach! Ogunquit is known for its fine beaches, great restaurants, sailing and boating in Perkins Cove, unsurpassed summer theatre of the stars, museums and gift shops. Ogunquit is also a renowned seaside artist community. The town of York has many beaches that cater to different interests; busy, quiet and kid-friendly. York also has some fine restaurants, lovely places to visit and Southern Maine's only Zoo/amusement park! Research both York and Ogunquit's Chambers of Commerce to get a taste of what is in the area. The famous Kittery Outlets are right down the road, so shopping is a decadent pleasure just a few minutes from our home.! For those who like to explore our nearby New England neighboring towns, the historical allure of Portsmouth, NH, is only 15 minutes from the house. There we find a myriad of fine restaurants, theatres, parks, boutiques, museums and seaside history. Like to hike? Just up the road, York also has a little mountain. Once a ski slope, Mount Agamenticus now has hiking and horse trails, and a magnificent view of the whole area. Great place for a picnic! Center for Wildlife is not far, either, for a visit to our friendly neighborhood wildlife rehab center. We are a short hour + away from historic Boston, Portland and the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. With an easy 1 hour drive from 3 major airports (Portland, ME, Boston, MA and Manchester, NH), the beauty of the Southern Maine's rocky coastline, sandy beaches and legendary Lighthouses are within your grasp. Make sure to bring your camera!!

“Our Home Away From Home!”

Reviewed 25 Nov 2015

This amazing home has been my family's "home away from home" for the past 3 summers. Our entire family spends the week in this fabulous home and location to "get away from it all" and enjoy the nearby ocean and area. The family that rents this home is just as wonderful as the home itself. We have created some amazing memories staying at this wonderful residential York property. We have privacy while at the same time, we are not far away from all of the restaurants and activities in town and nearby towns. This is our PERFECT paradise. We book the following summer the week after we leave! It is truly a hidden treasure. It is comfortable, relaxing and has all of the benefits of being able to stay in for the night or go out for the night. It is spacious so that everyone has their own space when needed. There is a large living room and dining room for the family to gather together. I cannot say enough about this magical home. Absolutely amazing!

“Beautiful Vacation House”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2014

My family of 5 stayed at this house for a week in July and we all had plenty of room to sprawl out. We loved the giant back deck at night, sat on the front porch and watched our daughter play in the yard and had complete privacy from neighbors. The zoo is across the street as is the Bagel Shack for morning breakfast- mmmm. The beaches are a super short drive and kittery outlets were SO close by we went more than once during the week. We all liked having AC in the house- watched tv together on comfy couches and the beds are comfortable too! Wireless internet, books and toys for kids was a plus ! Thank you Jen and family for a wonderful, relaxing stay! Amy- and Family

“friendly and clean!”
