DAY LILY COTTAGE NEAR LONG SANDS BEACH AND FAMOUS NUBBLE LIGHTHOUSE- This spacious quaint cottage sits on 1/3 of an acre and is located only 4 houses in from Long Sands Beach, the main York beach destination in southern Maine. This short distance provides the traveler with a short walk to the beach added with a quiet, relaxing place to return to.The ocean is clearly visible as one enters the property from the spacious driveway area. BOOK DIRECT W THE OWNER AND SAVE!
The cottage living space is 800 square feet and consists of a great room concept (combined open LR, DR, kitchen areas), 2
large bedrooms (12’ x 15’ each), and one bathroom (w/ shower only). An additional 10' x 17' screened-in-porch and adjacent deck makes this the perfect spot for relaxing in the shade or sun. Entry to the cottage is celebrated through the screen room and an interior sunny area lined on 2 sides with windows, making this the perfect area for morning coffeee or evening happy hour. And the outdoor shower is perfect for washing off the beach sand and salt water.
The yard is landscaped with large attractive planting areas that attract birds and butterflies and a slate walkway leading to a front lower deck. The outside deck has ample seating for over 8 for entertaining. A large grill accompanies the deck and is ready to cook the perfect meal!
York is located near the Kittery shopping area with over 150 outlet stores, the historic York District, and the beach-boardwalk area (home-made salt water taffy is a must!). York is located in southern Maine off Highway 95 and is easily reached via the Boston MA airport (about a 60 min drive north) and the Manchester NH airport (about a 45 min drive east).
A perfect day could include a leisurely (or brisk!) walk or bike ride to the Nubble Lighthouse while enjoying the scenic views of the Coast of Maine, then lunch along the beach soaking in the sun and waves, followed by a little shopping at the outlets, closing with a nice dinner and show in Ogunquit or York Center!! Ahhh, vacation - this IS how life should be lived!
