Family bought beach cottage in 1965. Property now managed by siblings one living in California and one living in New Hampshire. Cottage is a family treasure. Many fond memories of the beautiful Maine coast

One of the original cottages built on Moody Beach in the early 1900's. It was built by the same family as it's twin house next door.
There are less and less of the original beach cottages remaining now.
This is a seasonal cottage open only from June to October
Private beach. Wonderful beach view. Can sit on the oceanfront lawn or front porch and watch the ocean all day. Beach access with stairs and if there is seaweed or too many rocks, the public way access is only 4 cottages to the south. The tide goes out pretty far allowing for beach activities like Bocci Ball and building sand castles. High tide now comes right to the bottom of the beach access stairs.
Cottage is very rustic and casual. The outside after beach hot/cold shower helps you rinse off the salt water and beach sand.
Surfing is good right in front of the cottage if the surf is "up" If the ocean is flat then kayaking maybe in order. Both can be rented at local surf and bike shop on Route !
My family and I had the best Maine vacation ever in this roomy, comfortable cottage with its amazing view of the ocean right living room! The spacious front porch was perfect for relaxing with morning coffee and a glass of wine after dinner. Plenty of parking and the owner was friendly and wonderful to deal with. We definitely plan to return next year!
Just returned from a week at the Arline and we enjoyed our vacation in Maine! The house has every item that you might need for comfort and a view that is breathtaking. The sunset and sunrise as well as the oceanview from the lawn provide such serenity. The beach is eight or ten steps away from the lawn. The outdoor shower is available to cut down on sand coming into the house and the bedrooms have enough windows for great ocean breezes at night. The livingroom and kitchen are quite spacious and twice we dined outside with candles so we could view the ocean during dinner. It was a beautiful, serene, relaxing week!
Usually York Beach vacationers but wanted to try something different. This was a pleasant surprise from start to finish. The owner(s) were friendly and informal and gave you a means to contact them but did not interfere with your stay. The house is layed out perfectly and has plenty of personality - its an oldie but a goodie. Everything that was suppose to be there was and all in good working condition. The house and property were clean and well taken care of. Its a perect location as far as the beach goes and the view doesn't get any better. The neighbors were great and full of useful information. Not only would I recommend this rental but I really hope to return again next year. My entire family loved this place and have raved about it to anyone that might be interested in Moody Beach. Can't miss on this one and the price was right as well. I've fallen in love with maine all over again!
