A Spectacular Escape to Maine!

Beachfront vacation home with calming spa services
During this difficult Covid time, The Cottage is the perfect spot to get away from it all. Situated between the beaches of York and Ogunquit, summer activities are endless. Sun, surf, lobster, tennis and golf, are all at your fingertips. The Fall brings cool nights and fabulous foliage and long walks on the beaches. Holiday season brings cold, crisp days with peaceful evenings by the fire. Holiday events in the local towns bring tourists for the Maine holiday ambiance. Enjoy the wonderfully clean, refreshing ocean air while sipping a hot mulled wine with family and friends. The house is flooded with beautiful light and is warm and welcoming. It’s here where you, your family and friends can enjoy the perfect vacation . Enjoy all the comforts of home with comfy beds, lush towels, in an architecturally fabulous vacation home. It is a wonderful vacation destination for children with beaches of every kind. York Beach has a quaint arcade, gift shops, beach playground, and animal park, as well as the The Goldenrod, where taffy has been made for over 100 years. Water sports abound from surfing, paddleboarding, kayaking, and canoeing can all be arranged with equipment rentals readily available. Ogunquit offers whale watching, fishing, and sailboat cruises. We can provide you with information and arrangements. . Set on a bluff overlooking the Bay of Maine and the Pint Cove private beach, the Cottage is a spectacular and private setting, second to none on the coast of Maine. The entry level offers two complete suites with sleeping for 12 people while the main level has a master suite for 2 and wide open living spaces. The walkout entertainment level includes a theater, and gym for exercise and private yoga, and indoor basketball. The newly resurfaced tennis court, gardens and patio as well as the pathway to the private beach at Pint Cove are accessed on this level. There is something for everyone here, - covered wrap around porches with chairs and rockers for catching the breezes from the ocean and listening to the fountain in the fish pond, to dining or sunning on the decks above, or catching a few minutes to read on the screened in porch. Playing tennis on our court and showering in the double outdoor shower or playing outdoor games with the kids make for a fun filled day. The Spa at the Cliff House, a world class resort right here in Cape Neddick , is available for the ultimate pampering experience. Walking along the ocean to the Cape Neddick Beach a few minutes away, or using our pathway to our private pebble beach for some quiet time at the ocean, are all available. The living level has dining for 14 inside and on the deck which is off the dining room. The deck has tables and chairs and a gas grill for outdoor eating with ocean view. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with all that you need to prepare fine food. The living room has a wood burning fireplace, comfortable seating and ocean views. Our propane lobster pot makes the perfect lobster. The master suite has French limestone surround in the bathroom, spacious dressing room, four- poster bed, wet bar and French doors leading to the screened-in porch which is ideal for relaxing, listening to the ocean, and reading that summer novel. If shopping is your thing, the Kittery outlets is a ten minute drive away and Portsmouth, NH is only fifteen minutes away and is a beautiful port city with shops and many dining options. Strawberry Bank which is a restored colonial community is located here. Portsmouth is an operating port with lots of oceangoing vessels along with fishing boats and tugs. Going north to Kennebunkport is also a place that offers many opportunities for sightseeing and shopping and is only half an hour away. Upon your arrival, we will greet you and give you a tour of the house and property and we are nearby for extra assistance and to answer any questions you may have.

5/5 Excellent

Could not have been happier at our resort like stay.
We planned for months for a big holiday with our entire family. The "cottage" is everything you want it to be; from the perfect layout, to the views, to the theater and basketball court. We are very thankful to Nancy and David for being great hosts on a wonderful compound.

5/5 Excellent

5/5 Excellent

Views, beautiful grounds and plenty of space.
What a treat to get away from it all and stay and this beautiful property. We wanted a place that we could go to and still socially distance and get like we had our own private bit of paradise. So much to do. Awesome location, stunning views and wonderful hosts. The house has everything and was perfect! Loved the hammock even on a rainy day!

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing Getaway
This home served as a wonderful getaway for our family during this unusual COVID summer. It's roomy, with nice indoor and outdoor spaces, has a nice tennis court which sealed the deal for us, is within 10-15 minutes walk of two casual lobster restaurants, less than 10 minutes walk from a small sandy public beach and a 5 minute walk to a beautiful private rock beach. The house had everything we needed, and Nancy and Dave were easy to work with and very responsive. Just what the doctor ordered!

5/5 Excellent

Superb for a family vacation!
Wonderful space and awesome location for a family get away!
