About Peter

I grew up going to York Beach, every summer, as a child. I have vivid memories of enjoying York with family and friends. It's a great, well rounded beach and offers something for everyone.

Peter purchased this house in 2014

Why Peter chose Southern Coast of Maine

A couple of years ago, I attended a wedding at the Bluff, and while sitting across the way, this house stood out to me. I wondered what it was- it intrigued me. When we were looking for our own place in York, I stumbled upon this property... I remembered it well. And while it was a labor of love, this is such a unique place, that our own family with enjoy, and we are delighted to share it with others too.

What makes this house unique

This property has many unique features... from the enormous great room/sunroom... to the many decks, and views that are unmatched. It's truly a special place.

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.

Beautiful home by the beach

  • 5 of 5

I needed a property for a large group for my wife's birthday and this place was the perfect fit. The owner was very attentive and helpful and the property was fully renovated and had every amenity you could want. The views from the house's decks are amazing and it is only a three minute walk to short sands beach. I would recommend this house to anyone with a big group looking to have a great time near the ocean.
