Dog-Friendly Home w/Spacious Lawn, Gas Grill, Central AC, and Wood Fireplace

Find a quiet seaside getaway at this dog-friendly home near Short Sands Beach! This home is conveniently located at the end of a gravel cul-de-sac on a private road, so you can easily retreat, relax, and recharge. The lush lawn will be a great place to be if you wish to enjoy the outdoors and simply relax. There are a handful of colorful Adirondack chairs near a private gas grill, perfect for family barbecues. Inside, the living room offers unlimited comfort with a cozy sofa and an armchair near a sizable wood-burning fireplace and a flatscreen TV. The eat-in kitchen comes equipped with all the small and major appliances you'll need to cook up a delicious meal for friends and family.

The main bedroom's window overlooks an undeveloped marsh, home to orioles and cardinals. Awake each morning to the sound of birds chirping. A nice space for work and relaxation, the second bedroom comes with a desk, a chair, and plenty of shelves for your books or papers. The full bathroom in the hallway offers a tub/shower combo.

Short Sands Beach (and all shops and restaurants in that area) are all within walking distance. Dunne's Ice Cream and Fox's Lobster House are great destinations on your way to or back from a walk or drive to the Nubble Lighthouse. York's Wild Kingdom is within walking distance and a great destination for children. For adults, York Beach Beer Company (featuring outdoor seating and a rotation of local food trucks) and the Wiggly Bridge Distillery tasting room are also within walking distance. If you’re in the mood for something a bit more upscale, the Union Bluff hotel offers both a pub and a dining room and is just a short jaunt across the picturesque beach. For countless additional dining, entertainment, and shopping options, it’s just a short drive to either Portsmouth or Ogunquit.

Loved walking in this beautiful neighborhood. Walkable to restaurants and gorgeous scenic views. House is clean and stocked with everything you need. Good value.

As a family of 3 2 adults and our 2 year old corgi mix Ali the setting couldn't have been better. 2 specious bedrooms with comfy cozy pillows and comforter that would please any snob. The living area was suited with a leather couch sitting chair/ottoman fireplace. It also has a large picture window, we saw early morning deer passing through. That was priceless. I dont want to fail to mention the Red Fox that skumpered by. We enjoyed cooking a steak one evening on the grill,kitchen was well equipped to put your meals together. I enjoyed sitting in the yard bird watching, so peaceful. The beach Long or Short Sands mile away. I enjoyed myself, great host.

Enjoyed our stay at sweet little cottage by the sea. It was a great location, dog friendly and quiet. Quick and easy walk to Short Sands....a bit further to Nubble but still doable. Thank you...we will be back!

The house was adorable! Perfect for the 3 of us for our long weekend get away. Walking distance to the Nubble Lighthouse, lots of shops, restaurants, two beaches, and of course Dunne's ice cream. Freshly cleaned smell when we walked in. The beds were very comfortable. The neighborhood was very quiet and the neighbors we did see were very friendly.
We enjoyed our much needed vacation! We'd love to stay again. Thank you!

We really loved this location. It was tucked away and felt very private but was close to everything. Walking distance to the beach. Short drive to other great day trip destinations
