Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom (Sleeps 6)

This newly remodeled vacation home is a quaint expanded cape with peekaboo views of Barrells Mill Pond. It is in a quiet neighborhood, a stones throw from the Wiggly Bridge and a short walk to the York Harbor Beach, historic York Village, the town docks and marina. The house was recently remodeled with a relaxing modern beach theme, complete with a new kitchen and master bedroom with en suite bathroom. The second floor bathroom has been remodeled for 2016. The large front deck has also just been completed. There is plenty of room for 6 people with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room, family room, and kitchen. There is a shady backyard with newly installed patio with views to Wiggly Bridge and a small front porch that comfortably seats 4 people. The master bedroom has a queen bed with two twins in each of the other bedrooms.

York is a popular beach community with history, charm and accessibility. First settled in 1624 and the first incorporated city in America, the area offers a myriad of fun things to do including relaxing on the beach, fishing, sightseeing and shopping. It is home to the John Hancock Wharf and Mark Twain's Summer home and is an area which still has architectural examples from the Gilded Age, particularly the Shingle style.

A perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely home. The location can't be beat, we walked everywhere, and the house has everything you could possibly need; washer & dryer, dishwasher, fans and air-conditioning units, etc. Plus this home is comfortable and every room is tastefully decorated; charming! York Harbor has so much to offer but it's also very convenient to other locations such as Kennebunkport and Portsmouth. We would come back here in a heart beat!

Lovely home

  • 4 of 5

We had a really nice vacation in York. The house was lovely, very clean and the quiet location was great. All 6 adults were very comfortable. The slight improvement I would recommend is better quality bed sheets and towels. Everything was clean but rather on the thin side. Also, having a couple extra bath towels would have been nice.

Lovely house in a great location! Perfect layout for our group. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here - close to the beach and restaurants but with a quiet atmosphere. We just may be back next year! :)
