YORK HARBOR - QUIET STREET, 5 MIN WALK TO OCEAN, ALL TAXES/FEES INCLUDED IN RATE

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in York Harbor - Norwood Farms Road

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

The house on Norwood Farms Road is on a ½ acre corner lot at the intersection of Eastern Point Road. This is a quiet neighborhood located between Route 1A and the mansions on the ocean. There are great ocean views in the winter, but the leaves on the trees limit the summer ocean views.

There is a large master bedroom with bathroom with shower stall. The guest bedroom has twin beds which can be put together to form a king size bed. The den has a couch that converts to a comfortable queen size bed. The large living room opens to the dining room. The kitchen is on the ocean side of the house, with a door leading to a stone patio equipped with lawn chairs and a charcoal grill. The house is surrounded by a large yard with huge oak trees providing plenty of shade in the summer. There is central air conditioning, which is rarely needed because of the ocean breezes and shade provided by the trees.

The Cliff Walk, a scenic footpath along the rocky coast, is a 5-minute walk from the front door. There are many opportunities for hiking and biking in the area. Long Sands Beach is a short drive or a 20-minute walk along Roaring Rock Road. York Beach is filled with small shops, restaurants, and the York Wild Kingdom & Amusement Park. The Cape Neddick Lighthouse (Nubble Light) is on a peninsula between Long Sands and Short Sands, and a beautiful spot to visit on a sunny day.

Perkins Cove, a charming ocean side collection of small shops and restaurants, is a 20-minute drive to the north. Marginal Way is another scenic ocean side cliff walk between Perkins Cove and Ogunquit Beach.

The Kittery Outlets are a major attraction for shoppers. When Pig Fly is a fantastic bakery on Route 1 between York and Kittery with free samples of dozens of types of bread. There is also a great produce stand on the east side of the road just south of York.

On Route 1, just off the highway, is Stonewall Kitchen with specialty foods, gifts and kitchenware that are sold all over the US. Even Eldridge Lumber is an attraction with the Atlantic Design Center. If you are thinking of doing home remodeling and looking for ideas this is a great place to visit.

Karen and I are retired teachers. We enjoy traveling, and have always enjoyed exploring all parts of Maine.

We have two children, both still in college.

Stephen Bittner purchased this house in 2010

Karen grew up in Portland Maine and spent summers in the York Beach area. We were married in Kennebunkport Maine. This house was built for her Aunt and Uncle in the 1960s, and we are excited to have taken ownership of the house.

We have limited time to spend at the house each year, but enjoy sharing this amazing location with others.

We begin each visit to the house by going on the Cliff Path walk, a beautiful rocky trail along the ocean that ends at York Harbor Beach. Everyone will enjoy climbing down the cliffs to the ocean, or walking along the beach.

Continue walking to the right of the Stage Neck Inn on a path along the harbor to the Wiggly Bridge. On the far side of the bridge is Steedman Woods with more trails to hike and explore.

Walk north along Route 1A to Long Sands where you will find a mile and a half of scenic beach front, ice cream stands, restaurants and shops. If you choose to drive there is plenty of meter parking.

There are many great restaurants in the area featuring the seafood of Maine. Make sure to enjoy at least one breakfast at the Bagel Basket in York. The York Harbor Inn is within walking distance and offers fine dining, evening activities and a great Sunday brunch.

Quiet family vacation

  • 5 out of 5
This property met our needs perfectly. As advertised, the house is a bit older, but very cozy and comfortable - like visiting your grandparents. Everything is clean and functional, and there was plenty of room for our family of 4. The neighborhood is quiet, but close to all the York-area highlights, and was a great place to "come home to" after a busy day at the beach or exploring further along the coast. I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of a typical beach vacation, while having everything close by. Be sure to visit the Cliff Walk, especially just before sunset.

Family vacation and wedding

  • 5 out of 5
Our son was getting married in the area and this home was the perfect location and size to meet our family's needs. The home is older, but well equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The area is very quiet and peaceful. The town of York is lovely with some nice little shops to visit. There is a lot of sightseeing in the area and outlet shopping close by in Kittery. The home is so close to the ocean you can hear the ringing of the bell from the buoy. Karen and Stephen were highly accommodating to our schedule. We would not hesitate to stay there again if visiting the area.

Nice vacation property

  • 5 out of 5
We found the house to be well-maintained and spacious enough for six people (a set of grandparents, a set of parents, and two children). Although you can't really see the ocean from the property, it is actually very close - just one row of houses away. We enjoyed the delicious seawater smell and the gong-like sounds of a buoy in the evening hours. The location is a walking distance (or a short drive) to York Harbor Beach and Long Sands Beach, both equally beautiful though very different. The kitchen appears to be well-stocked, but most appliances are old (though working fine). Same goes about the bathrooms. The owners were very social and helpful with everything. This stretch of the Maine coast is extremely picturesque and well worth a visit.

House Review

  • 4 out of 5
We found this house to be clean and in a great location. You could walk to York Harbor Beach as well as Long/Short Sands which was convenient. The neighborhood was nice and very quiet. The house is exactly as described, and we would recommend this property to friends.

5 minutes to ocean yet 15 minute walk to beach

  • 5 out of 5
The house is very well maintained, comfortable and clean. We were a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children). We had plenty of space, inside and outside. It has a nice deck with garden furniture and a barbecue. We really enjoyed the location of the house. It is in a beautiful area, surrounded by beautiful homes and mature trees. We loved York Harbor beach. It is quiet and not bombarded by tourists. It takes approximately 15 minutes to walk and about 5 minutes to drive to the beach. I would highly recommend this property to my friends and family. The owners are very helpful and accommodating. We plan on returning again next summer.

Peace and Tranquility

  • 5 out of 5
This home is the most perfect place to stay if you would like to experience southern Maine from a base of peace and ease. The home is lovely, sparkling clean, uncluttered, well-maintained and peaceful. Breakfast is on the patio off the kitchen, under the tall and graceful trees in a very quiet and beautiful neighborhood through which you can see the ocean. Up and out for a morning walk with a cliff walk nearby wrapping around the gorgeous York Harbor. It is a simple drive through a charming town to the highways that lead to the busy tourist attractions. The owners are really caring and helpful. We stayed with 5 people quite comfortably. The bagel shop in the middle of town is bustling with great people and delicious bagels, coffee, etc. This is an easy, graceful place to stay and venture out from while exploring Maine. I would definitely recommend this home to family and friends! Enjoy!
