A Cape Neddick Show House

The Old York Historical Society is hosting its 17th Annual Decorator Show House at the 19th-century Hillside Cottage through August 12.
Located in the prestigious York Cliffs section of Cape Neddick on Agamenticus Avenue, offering seasonal views of the Atlantic, Hillside Cottage has undergone a total decorating re-thinking by skilled New England-based designers who have refurbished it with contemporary ideas while respecting its 1899 structure. Antiques mingle with the latest designs in kitchen appliances, woodstoves, fabrics, furniture, carpeting - both outdoors and indoors. Additionally, many of the furnishings come from locally-based vendors, tempting visitors to come away in a buying mood that they can exercise, for most contents are for sale. [Link]
There is a hefty cover charge, but proceeds do benefit the museums of Old York. For a sneak peek at the rooms, visit
