Incredible house. Perfect for large groups.

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect house for a large group. We had 17 people and found it incredibly spacious, with great common areas and more than enough sleeping spots. The best parts of the house are its decks. They provide beautiful views of the ocean and the perfect place to hang out and have meals. The property owner is extremely accommodating and very responsive. I knew it was going to be a great weekend when I got there and chatted with him for a bit. We would definitely return for another stay.

Outstanding for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a long weekend wedding. Three generations of my family stayed together, with plenty of room to accommodate everyone. The teenagers thought the top deck was the bomb. The large outdoor deck on the second floor accommodated our young adults, and the little ones were safe and could run around on the first floor porch.

My sons in law were delighted with TiVo on every television, and a central charging station for our electronics. The large number of tables and couches on the porch easily accommodated our visiting guests for a family meal.

The kitchen is modern and well appointed. With three full baths, we easily handled getting ready for the wedding festivities. Also we could walk to the beach and playground, and it was a very short drive to the charming little town.

The house worked well for us on so many levels. Would highly recommend to future renters who need this type of space.

Better then ever

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been going to York Beach for over 20 years, and before that my wife spent her summers there as a child. We have rented the Rockmont, or should I say the OLD Rockmont many times because of the location to short sands and downtown. But the NEW Rockmont is magnificent. Peter kept the great porch and made everything else better. When my Sister In-law heard about the renovation from my wife, she went right out and rented it and enjoyed there stay as well.

I would recommend any large family that wants a great place to rent they can't beat the Rockmont.
