Our spacious (1200 sf) and historic (c. 1670) one bedroom apartment for two guests has exposed beams, wide pine floors, full bath, kitchenette, and is just a short walk to Long Sands Beach or a short drive to York Beach, York Harbor, or York Village.
The Preble House is one of the oldest houses in America and our guests are welcome to guess its true age. It has been completely restored with a large "barn" addition where we live. Our guests have exclusive of the dining room with kitchenette, featuring a fridge, two burner electric cooktop, and microwave and all the cookware and service ware and condiments you'll need. The kitchenette is great for breakfast and lunch but it will not satisfy a gourmet chef! We will make sure the fridge is stocked with OJ, Milk, and soft drinks. And the pantry will have cereals, and bread for toast.
There's a 50" plasma TV with Roku enabled access to Netflix, Time-Warner's channel lineup, HBO, etc. Switch to cable for major networks and more. We also supply an HDMI cable if you want to hook up your laptop. You'll have your own secured wifi.
We've got lots of beach chairs so just ask if you want them. There's a bridge at the end of Bayview for a short cut to the ocean and we'll give you our secret spots when high tide forces everyone off the beach.
We do charge a pretty hefty cleaning fee, not just because it's a big space, but also to encourage multiple night stays. We do have a roll-out bed if our TWO guests do not want to share the queen bed. And sorry, we are NOT childproofed and unfortunately must decline to host guests with small children.
Our guests have exclusive use of the apartment. Entry is through the front door to the house. There is a connecting door to our kitchen and living space which we generally keep locked. The house is definitely not child proof - or pet proof.....Sorry.

We live in the attached house and work mostly from our home. We're friendly and helpful folks but we expect our guests can enjoy their experience without our intrusion.... we are a mere text message away. But we love to share our knowledge of the area and are most happy to help you plan your itinerary - just ask! Check out the Guidebook to get a quick overview of our favorite places in the area.

My wife and I are frequent travelers who like to "do it our own way". We plan our own adventures and, these days, rely mostly on TripAdvisor as our resource. We like to mix music, art museums, historic houses, and lots of walking into our trips. We prefer dining with the locals and like to meet folks along the way (but never travel with other people). We think of ourselves as great hosts and hope we are equally good guests: respectful of time, privacy, and noise as well as good conversation and helpful information.
