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.

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!

Multi-family perfection

  • 5 of 5

The "Towers" provided an amazing atmosphere in itself. Add in the gorgeous ocean views, perfect view of the York fireworks on our last night, and convenient walk to Short Sands beach and town, and you have the makings of a great family vacation.

The house is stocked with interesting antiques as well as all of the modern appliances needed for a family that likes to cook and eat meals together. We even had a cookout one night.

Initially, I thought that having only one indoor shower all of us would be a problem. I soon discovered that the outdoor shower provided a great place for us to rinse off after the beach or take a full hot shower with out having to worry about getting water on the floor.

I would recommend the "Towers" to any large family group.
