This colorful Victorian in York, Maine isn’t just a quirky beach house—it’s a piece of history. Known as the Conant-Sawyer Cottage, the place was once the summer home of New Hampshire’s 41st governor, Charles Henry Sawyer. It was built in 1877, and maintains a wealth of original features including a hand-carved wooden staircase, arched double doors, and a sizable fireplace.

A wrap-around front porch boasts unobstructed views of the Atlantic, as do the floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room. There are a whopping five vibrant bedrooms on the second floor, and above them, there’s a third-floor tower. An outdoor shower makes the house the ideal post-beach day hangout—it’s located a few blocks from Short Sands Beach, York Beach Pavilion, and the oft-photographed Nubble Lighthouse.
