About Nanette Higgins

I bought the cottage in 2005! It is my little piece of paradise. I want to share my love for the beach and my cozy cottage with families so they will be able to have these precious memories with their children for years to come! I am so blessed to be so close to the beach (literally steps away) with a magnificent view of the rocky coast and the famous Nubble Lighthouse!

Why Nanette Higgins chose York Beach

I chose this property because I did not want to sit in traffic on my vacation. There are several restaurants very close by as well as the Trolley right around the corner. We have a lovely grass area for the children to play on. We are within walking distance of many amenities.

What makes this cottage unique

On our property there are 2 designated parking spots included with the rental. This area is a safe family oriented community where people come back year after year. There are many things to do: Kittery Outlets, kayaking, boating, walking the beach, fishing, Ogunquit Playhouse, Wild Kingdom Zoo, or just lounging around. It's your vacation and your choice as to what you'd like to do or not do.York Beach is one of the best hidden secrets I know! Come join us and become a part of The Maiden Voyage family!

Cozy cottage with all you need.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was quaint and cozy. Everything you need is there and literally steps to the beach. We enjoyed our stay. The neighbors were friendly too. The beach was amazing. Got a three mile run in each morning. You can plan to visit Wells Harbor for kayaking, ogunquit for food and shops, Kittery Outlets, and Kennebunkport for more shopping and food. Portsmouth (downtown) also great for foodies and shops. We will be back.

There are special events such as fireworks, The Lighting of Nubble Lighthouse, York Days with sidewalk sales, a bonfire cookout at the beach to benefit the local open pantry and much more.
