Great home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend at the Towers was everything we had hoped and more. If you like antiques and a walk down memory lane, you will love it too. Spectacular ocean front Victorian with a porch where you can sit and read all day long or just sit and “people watch” or just enjoy the sounds of the ocean. Would definitely return for another stay.

A nice view and good access

  • 4 of 5

This was a great location!

One ce parked our cars, there was no need to get back in. We walked to the beach, restaurants, bars, etc.

I'll go back.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the Towers was wonderful! Fred and Janet welcomed me and my family upon arrival and made us feel right at home.

The house had everything we needed. I thought having one full bathroom would be a problem--but it was never an issue and the outdoor shower was perfect for the kids or people wanting to rinse off after the beach.

I vacationed with 4 adult couples (raning in age from 30's to 60's) and 4 kids (2-6 in age). The house was very spacious and we never felt crowded. We spent most of our days on the Short Sands beach and walking around the quaint town of York Beach (which is short 3-5 minute walk from the house). When we weren't on the beach, we were sitting on the huge wrap around porch enjoying the fabulous views of the ocean. We also walked to the Nubble Light house most mornings and occasionally would drive to Long Sands Beach (about 3-4 minute drive). For the most part, you do not need a car when you're staying at the Towers. Everything you need is within short walking distances (even the Trolleys that will take you to other areas nearby).

York Beach was a wonderful place to vacation and the Towers is the perfect place to stay! I would recommend this vacation home to anyone spending time in the York Beach area; the Knox's have provided a truly great retreat for those looking for a fun, relaxing and unique vacation experience. Thank you for making my family vacation so memorable!
