Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Cape Neddick

Two Bedroom Cottage In Tranquil Setting Close Walk To The Beach

Relax in our private, romantic Cape Neddick cottage, overlooking a two-acre meadow and woodland, and comfortably close—by foot, bike, or car—to the amenities of York, Ogunquit, Kittery, and Portsmouth.

Though close to amenities, this cottage is off the beaten path on a quiet private way, near the Cape Neddick River. It offers great natural light, lovely views of the surrounding landscape... and abundant tranquility.

An open Dining area forms the cottage’s center. Its white vaulted wood ceiling and walls give the adjacent open-concept Kitchen and Living spaces an airy, relaxed feel. A gas fireplace-stove warms you up on the occasional chilly evening. A four-person Italian flip top dining table with comfortable chairs opens to accommodate eight persons when needed. The Living Room has a comfy leather sofa and flat screen TV. The Kitchen is fully furnished with stove/oven, microwave, and all necessary cooking and serving ware. The Deck, overlooking the meadow and woodland, has a dining table with chairs with umbrella. Two Bedrooms and a small Loft provide among them a king, a queen, and a double bed (all comfortable), and privacy, along with linen and towels.

Amenities nearby include beaches, kayaking, paddle boarding, canoeing, boating and sailing, whale-watching and fishing, hiking and nature centers, as well as historic and cultural activities including live music and theater. There is a rich assortment of farm-and-sea-to-table dining, both fine and casual. For a more detailed list of what you will find nearby, see, York Maine.

Our cottage provides you with comfort, quiet, and closeness to a rich slice of Southern Maine.

About us:

My wife and I are architects, reside in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and purchased our cottage in the late summer of 2014.

We have vacationed in the York area for years and found ourselves spending more time in Southern Maine. We chose our cottage in part because its location is convenient, but also because its park-like two-acre site gives us privacy and quiet in a genuinely beautiful location. We love having beaches so close, and the fact that after years of exploring, we continue to discover more here in Southern Maine.

We hope you decide to vacation with us and find our cottage as charming as we do!

James Mayeux and Gina Ford

Every bit as adorable as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I spent a week in May and it was so pleasant. The cottage was well appointed and so comfortable. Even the beds and bedding were comfortable, not always the case in vacation rentals. The location was beautiful, relaxing and only a few minutes from the beach by car. We wouldn't hesitate to rent this cottage again. The owner was a pleasure to work with!

Our new home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is just lovely. It is minimalist and crisp white and lends itself to making it your own during your stay. We live just outside Boston and do not have a large yard so our children and dog really enjoyed the large yard. We saw deer daily and enjoyed roasting smores around the fire pit in the evening. The property is a 5 minute drive to Long Sands and during the week we never had a problem parking any time of day, on the weekends an early start secured parking. We dined nearby at Stones Throw several times a week. The staff were friendly and remembered our preferences... Some of the best salads we've ever enjoyed.

We only had two neighbors on the private lane and they were both friendly and welcoming. The location is in a very private wooded area that is just minutes from route 1 and we enjoyed everyplace from Portsmouth, NH- Kennebunkport, ME along this road.

The owner was very considerate and flexible. He addressed any of the minor concerns or questions that came up immediately. He visited us at the cottage and shared very some of the activities that his family enjoys nearby. We felt very welcome and look forward to making this an annual tradition.

First Renters!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this sweet cottage just last week. We were the first vacation renters for the new owners. Jim and Gina were attentive and kind, they went out of their way to ensure that we had what we needed to have an enjoyable week. The cottage is located in a very private, quiet area. The lawn is lovely and our dogs enjoyed playing in the yard and on nearby long sands beach. Comfortable beds, quiet space...was a very restful trip. Already looking forward to my next stay at this special place, I feel lucky to have to found it.
