About Laura M. MaGocsi-Wilson

I am a single widowed woman. My home is located behind the Front House Cape. I purchased the two homes with the intent of having the Front House income to help pay the mortgage. I have lived in the 2 unit home and on the property since 1989. The Front House Cape was built in 1939 and my back home was built in 1960. When I bought the two houses in 2004, there were some major renovations done on the Front House Cape. New electrical, new boiler, new roof, all new appliances. I also had the Cape insulated and freshly painted.

I am originally from Albion and Waterville Maine. I have lived in the Wells area since 1983. I had worked in several restaurants, motels and worked at Hannaford Brothers for 15 years.

The Cape is ideal for families of 8 or less. There is a small yard out back with two peach trees and a raspberry patch. Not large enough for yard games, yet quaint enough to relax on the back porch for a small barbaque. The driveway is shared with both houses and enough parking for up to maximum 3 cars for the Front House.

Laura M. MaGocsi-Wilson purchased this house in 2004

Why Laura M. MaGocsi-Wilson chose Southern Coast of Maine

My father-in-law owned this property prior to myself. Upon my husbands passing I choose to purchase it from my mother-in-law. I have lived on the property longer than anywhere during my young life. It has history all around it. I hope to gain enough repeat guests who appreciate it's value and age, so as I can keep renting it for a long time to come.

What makes this house unique

The Front House Cape is simple. 4 bedrooms with enough space so it is like a home away from home. I am slowly making adjustments on the landscape to make it private, and easy to take care of.

All the comforts of home...

  • 5 of 5

I have probably stayed at every place on Rt 1 over the last 50 years. This is the first time we decided to rent a full house. We relied on past reviews, and were not disappointed. The house is very well maintained and stocked. All the creature comforts you would need are available. We decided to rent with my parents and filled the house, yet there was plenty of room. Laura was always available if needed and extremely friendly. You can walk to the beach, or hop a trolley very easily. If you want a well kept fully stocked house to rent at a very reasonable rate, this is it! We have already booked next year's stay.

Great Location at an Affordable Price

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 nights in January while on a house hunting trip in the area. The house was clean, well supplied, and very affordable for our needs. Laura is a very kind and gracious hostess, even getting out the snowblower to make sure we could get in the driveway safely.

Owner's Response: It is always a joy to have young couples with well behaved children. I am happy when they can appreciate the upkeep of an old home. I do my best to make sure the property is "safely" maintained.

Clean Home, Accommodating Owner, Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I rented this home as a quick getaway to celebrate our birthdays and the overall experience was extremely pleasant. The owner provided great customer service by welcoming us upon arrival, giving us a quick tour of the home, and told us to let her know if we needed anything else. The home was warm and inviting and made for a cozy few days for my girlfriend and I. The listing descriptions was accurate, the house was clean, and I would absolutely recommend this home to my friends and family. I've been renting properties using Homeaway for the past several years, and this was by far one of the most pleasant experiences I've encountered with a rental. We will most definitely be returning again.

Great place that is convenient to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house that is very close to the beach and convenient to all area attractions. It's a very well cared for and clean property and looks just like the pictures except that the exterior has been repainted and looks even better than in the picture. Four of us stayed here during Fall foliage season and couldn't have been more pleased with all the space and privacy. We toured around Maine and New Hampshire and found it to be an ideal location. It's well worth the money for what you get compared to other houses and hotels in the area. Laura (the owner) lives on the same property just behind the house and is very friendly and willing to help with anything that may be needed, but the house already has everything you could possibly need. I definitely recommend this place for your Maine vacation and I hope to stay there again sometime in the future. Thanks again, Laura! :-)

comfortable place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This review is very over due!! I have stayed at Laura's home several times for girls weekends. We were so happy the very first time we stayed there that we keep coming back. Like all the other reviews, we found the house to be clean, comfortable and homey. Laura is very accommodating and friendly. The house is within walking distance to the beach and I am a runner so being able to go for a beautiful run along the beach in the morning is wonderful. The house is not full of fancy or expensive things so it is relaxing. I am afraid that if too many people find out about this house I will not be able to get my weekends away so easily!! I'm almost afraid to tell more people! I will be going there soon. It feels like my second home! Patty M

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in this area for many years and decided to make it a family affair this year by inviting our two oldest daughter's and our grandchildren. The places we have stayed in the past couldn't accommodate all of us staying together so we decided to look for a house.

We found Laura's place and it was absolutely perfect in every way! It's close to the beach (within walking distance) & all the area attractions, restaurants, shopping and our favorite quaint little village of Ogunquit with all of it's lovely little shops.

The house was immaculate and very family friendly for those with little ones. It was very comfortable with the a/c and had enough space for everyone.

We had all the comforts of home! All we needed to bring was our personal belongings and beach towels. Everything else, linens etc were provided and the washer & dryer was a huge plus.

I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a location close to Moody and Ogunquit Beach and area attractions. My only regret is that I wish we could have stayed longer. The week flew by so quickly!

Next year we intend to stay for two weeks if possible.

Many thanks to Laura for her wonderful rental and helpfulness. See you next year!
