Diane Cottage, York Manor, Short Sands Beach

Beachfront Cottage in York with kitchen
You can't get any closer to the beach than the Diane cottage as part of the York Manor. Come stay at our cozy York Beach cottage located on Short Sands Beach. At the rear of the property is a charming Victorian-era one bedroom cottage. This is the only free-standing cottage on Short Sands Beach! Sleeps four, with a full-sized bed in the bedroom and two day beds in the living room. The 'Diane' has its own porch for a quiet evening or join the other guests on the front porch of the Manor in one of our classic wooden rockers. Enjoy the beautiful ocean view, spend your days in the sun at the beach only steps away, or walk to the quaint down town.

Short Sands Beach was recently named one of the 10 best beaches for a family vacation and you are on its doorstep! Relax on your front porch in one of our traditional wooden rockers as you watch the waves roll in or take in the nightly band concert at the gazebo. Park your car and put the keys away. Everything you could want to do is right outside your front door. No need to walk a long way or drive to the beach, step out the door and feel the sand between your toes.

Historic York Manor is a unique vacation complex, situated directly on Short Sands Beach, with dramatic ocean views of the open ocean. York Manor is one of the last vestiges of a time gone by. This is the perfect place to put your feet up and relax. This is Maine, “The Way Life Should Be”!
Air-conditioned accommodation at this cottage offers coffee/tea makers and a hairdryer. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils. Bathrooms include a shower.

Probably the cleanest rental I have ever experienced. The location is great and the bed was super comfy.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect beach cottage!
Very cute clean cottage. The bed was extremely comfortable! Great location, 2 minute walk to the beach & downtown. Added bonus that we could hear the bands at the gazebo from the front porch.
