Cozy cottage w/ private deck - walk to Short Sands Beach, 2 dogs welcome!
Take leisurely walks to Short Sands Beach from this one-bedroom York cottage, a cozy Southern Maine escape with a dog-friendly interior, a lovely front deck, and an ideal location close to shops, eateries, and the Nubble Light.
You'll find this single-level home just north of Cape Neddick, and three miles from the center of downtown York. Walk half a mile south (only eight minutes on foot) to sunbathe and swim at Short Sands Beach, stroll two miles south to check out the surf at Long Sands Beach, and head two miles southeast to admire the iconic Nubble Light at the tip of Cape Neddick. Traveling with kids? Be sure to take them to nearby York Animal Kingdom for rides and zoo animals!
With exposed beam ceilings, an open floor plan, and plentiful seating, this cottage is full of casual charm. Wake up each morning to check the tides on the free WiFi, prepare breakfast in the well-equipped kitchen, and take your dogs for a walk to the nearby lighthouse (please note that a 20 lb., two-dog limit and a small nightly pet fee apply).
Grab your bathing suits, towels, and picnic fixings and walk down to Short Sands Beach for a sun-splashed day of swimming and sandcastle-building. Come home to sip cold drinks on the deck, light the gas grill for a barbecue dinner, and dine on a feast of lobster and haddock. End the evening back inside, where two cable TVs and a DVD player await for fun-filled movie nights.
Come and experience a summer break in one of Maine's most beloved beach towns - book your stay in York today!

This home rental is all you need, comfortable, clean, nice location, quiet except for campground traffic. ..Nice short walk into town, even our dog liked it. Would stay again.. Didn't use any kitchen amenities we bring our own, but they had all you needed.. Thanks for renting your home to us.

I loved how clean the place was and the location was really good too
Meredith W.Jul 2021
I loved their communication! they were very accessible with any questions! The house had everything we needed (including dog bowls and mess bags!!). The beds were suuuuuper soft. The house was so cute inside and out! Great location - about 1/4 mile walk to short sands beach and all the shops!
Denise D.Jul 2021
My husband and I love this house! Immaculate and everything you could possibly need or want. Our mini Schnauzer loves it too! Short walk to Short Sands and all the shops . We’ll be back at The Sea Rose soon!
Donna G.May 2021
I searched and searched and searched for the right place for me and my older dog to have some mother-daughter time together. The cottage is absolutely perfect, immaculate and well equipped.
The location is terrific. You can walk right into downtown Yorke and be to the beach in 5 minutes..short drives to Kittery and Ogunquit. I would stay here again!

All you need in a cottage. Close to beach and good food, or cook on your own. Fully stocked and clean.
Andrew K.Oct 2020
Close to shorts sands, nice accommodations. Beds could be a little more comfortable was the only concern.
Heather P.Oct 2020
The place was the perfect size for two, was clean, and was a very quick walk or bike ride to Short Sands Beach and restaurants. The beds were very uncomfortable, but all in all it was a great stay!
Mary P.Sep 2020
immaculately clean, bath and kitchen well appointed. Nice outdoor space where dogs are welcome!
Denise D.Jul 2020
Loved this place! It was spotless and great for my husband and our Mini Schnauzer. Great location. Near Short Sands and all the shops. Just a walk away! We will be back!
William B.Jul 2020
Great little cottage, everything is clean and neat. Nice location, quiet and good neighbors. Easy walk to shott sands, only 7 minutes. We will definitely be coming back again!
Lynn L.Oct 2019
Loved the location, and we brought our little dogs. That was nice. Neighbors are miserable and unfriendly. We stayed out of their way.
This space needs some attention. Lots of mold on the bottom of the shower curtain. Bathroom mat filthy. The beds were both cupped inward, making sleeping very uncomfortable. I can typically sleep anywhere, but struggled with comfort and had pain I don’t typically have.
Each of us got one towel, washcloth, hand towel each for the week. One roll of toilet paper. Grocery store close by.
Garbage hut is in the back. One bag provided for garbage. Had to buy those too.
Good selection of dishes. I booked this through Airbnb, it’s my first Vacasa trip.
Thank you for your review, Lynn. A new shower curtain and bathmat have been purchased, and the owner is replacing the mattresses. We hope to have another opportunity to host you in the future!
Cathy M.Oct 2019
This nice cottage is in a great location. Cute as can be outside, inside has beautiful wood trim and ceilings in the living area and a large bathroom. The couches and beds are not as comfortable as we like and are noisy with squeaking upon any movement. Otherwise it has great potential.
Hi Cathy, thank you for your feedback. We'll be looking into making updates to our beds. We hope to host you again soon!

Great location, Property Manager was very nice address our concerns. Would definitely recomend to anyone wishing for a place to in York.
Kristen E.Jul 2019
I tired writing a review before but it doesn’t look like it posted... sorry if this is a duplicate. Our stay was great. We took advantage of the grill and were so pleased that the air conditioners and ceiling fans kept the place cool😊 Our dog came up for half of the week and it was so nice to have her with us. Things were clean and the kitchen had the cooking utensils we needed. The beds are not for folks that need a hard mattress but they were better than others we have tried. The walk to short sands is fast! Having the extra parking was great for day visitors. The neighbors we met were very friendly. All together this was awesome!

Karen H.May 2019
Quiet- private- so clean!
James H.Nov 2018
Good location, comfortable and with all the amenities. Sticky thermostat and a backed up toilet that was quickly remedied. Could not get the key box to re-lock. Left two lobster pots in the place and hope to return some day...
Anne D.Oct 2018
Great little cottage. Accessible to everything. Very quiet area.
Heidi S.Sep 2018
We had a good time getting away on a long weekend and for my birthday. The house was ready for us and conveniently located to beaches, shops, restaurants and surrounding area. I would recommend this location and we are already talking about when we can come back.
Laura S.Sep 2018
I have stayed at 5 star hotels that were not as plush, clean and equipped with anything you could possibly need for a great vacation. I would recommend this cottage to all my friends and family. It is certainly *The perfect Home away from Home*
Daniel L.Jul 2018
Our family of 6 enjoyed our stay at sea rose. Perfect little walk to short sands and all the shops. Def a cozy little well cared for cottage! Would def stay here again!
Rachael A.Jul 2018
Close walk to short sands-less than 10 minutes. Needed to reach the property manager (just lost key code) and was able to get ahold of him right away. Stocked kitchen, lots of towels and supplies. Defiantly will plan to stay again!
vicki c.Jun 2018

Close to Short and Long Sand beaches. Cute town of York walking distance - shops and restaurants.

Cozy little house that accepts dogs. Very clean and comfortable, has A/C and heat. Walking distance to beach, but no view from the house.
Kathryn W. M.Oct 2017
Close to lots of key spots, extremely clean and well appointed.
Robin P.Sep 2017
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the six days we spent here with our 2 small dogs. Great area to walk the dogs across Main Street towards the ocean, less than 1/4 mile and very safe. Convenient to lighthouse and "downtown".
Christopher B.Sep 2017
House was clean, quite and cozy. It was also within walking distance to the beach and downtown York.
Jeffrey S.Sep 2017
Very nice cottage in a wonderful location near the beach in York. It was the perfect size for our small family of 3. I'd definitely recommend to others and stay here again.
