About the property

Duplex Cottage 4 bdrm, 2 bath, sleeps 8.

The cottage is located on South Tibbetts Ave, Moody Beach, Wells, Maine. A short walk to much sought after, beautiful Moody Beach. This cottage has two units that feel like separate cottages. A very versatile home where you feel like you have your own individual cottage. The cottage is in a quiet neighborhood setting one street back from busy Ocean Ave. Moody Beach, a short 400 yd. walk away is connected to Oqunquit beach and offers a scenic 5 mile round trip walk. This West unit has a balcony that overlooks the Rachel Carson Sanctuary and has gorgeous sunset views, great foliage viewing, wonderful bird watching. It also has a small backyard complete with gas grill. It has 4 bedrooms- 3 upstairs and 1 down and 2 baths one on each floor. It has a total of 6 beds, 4 twins, 1 Queen and one full. It has a hot tub that is just for your unit and shared use of an outdoor shower. The salt water marsh behind the cottage is fun to explore in the 2 kayaks that we provide and are shared usage with the other unit. In order to access the Marsh with the kayaks you will need to shuttle them to Furbish Rd. where the river crosses under the road. Moody Beach is a family oriented community comprised of just a few streets lined with cottages tucked off of Route 1 in Wells, Maine. Within a 5 minute drive you have access to nearby restaurants, shops, movie theaters, Ogunquit Playhouse, grocery store(Hannaford and others), drug stores, Laundromats, Ogunquit Village, Ogunquit Playhouse, Perkins Cove, Wells beaches, The reserve at Laudholm, Mt. Agamenticus for hiking, and even a Dunkin Donuts right up the street on Rt. 1. Let's also not forget the amazing famous Scoop Deck which is not to be missed for it's crazy varieties of ice cream on a warm summer night! In the off season the cottage has cozy radiant heat and of course the hot tub!!

The pictures on this site are only of the West unit. Please see listing #226615 for information about our 3 bedroom, 7 person East unit.

About Becky

Hi there. We are Neal & Becky. We love calling Maine our home. Along with our four sons we have enjoyed this cottage since 1998. We enjoy everything outdoors especially those long walks on Moody Beach and boogie boarding/body surfing in the surf.

Becky purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Becky chose Wells

We just love where the cottage is located because it is a quiet residential street with wonderful neighbors and a quick short walk to the public beach access point on Moody Beach near the end of Furbish Rd. You are tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Rt. 1 yet so very close to the Hannaford grocery store and all the great restaurants of Wells, Ogunquit and Kennebunkport. We especially love lunch at David's Boathouse in Kennebunkport. The wedge salad is amazing and very reasonable! And let's not forget Scoop Deck and all the great ice cream choices!! The view from the upstairs deck that looks out across the Rachel Carson Sanctuary just can't be beat. The fall foliage is astounding. You have an overhang roof which keeps you feeling like you are in your own little world and of course you have the wonderful sunset views from that deck. Just love having my morning tea/coffee up there. Favorite place in this world. The hot tub is the perfect evening activity after a day at the beach. We hope you will come and enjoy our little slice of heaven.

First time, had a BLAST!

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting family in the area and it worked out that our plans fell though. The day before we wanted the house, we contacted the owners who were available and flexible. They went the extra mile to make sure we had what we needed, the house was well taken care of, had a lot of room, the hot-tub was wonderful and even with lunch and chairs it was only an 7 minute walk to the beach. The outdoor shower was nice, it made getting clean easy. We would recommend this house, considering we were looking at B&B's, the cost was less than those, plus we had parking and a bathroom, if we needed it, close. We will be back and after experiences like this, my wife said "why haven't we done this (vacation rentals) sooner?"

Thanks for taking good care us with your home.

Wonderful End of Season Vacation !

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, well organized cottage with much thought put into detail of renters needs. Very nice appliances made cooking in quite painless! Becky is very helpful and cooperative to her vacationers.

The location is ideal, convenient to all other vacation spots for tourists.

There was just a short walk to the beach where the waves were great fun.

The deck off the second floor master bedroom provided a quiet, pleasant spot to view the marsh wildlife (white egrets, and deer being my favorite) and to read a summer novel.

The hot tub added to what proved to be a very pleasant end of summer celebration for our family.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at our cottage so much. We agree with you the upper deck looking over the marsh is like a little personal hideaway. We are so thankful to you for treating our home with such respect and leaving it in such perfect condition when you left. We try so hard to make this a home away from home for our guests and it sounds like you were very pleased with our efforts. Thank you for taking your precious time to write this kind review!!. We sure hope you can come back another year and have another end of summer magical vacation with your wonderful family!!

Where do you live?

Just what we needed. Wonderful week in Maine.

  • 5 of 5

Becky was GREAT to work with from start to finish. The house is very clean, comfortable space, with all the amenities anyone would need - and more! Comfortable beds - truly sleeps 8 adults well. New appliances. Clean, new fixture, nice bathrooms. The wagon made the short walk to the beach easy going and coming. Bikes and kayaks also available. The dishwasher was a luxury that gave us time to soak in the hot tub.

In addition, well located central to York, Cape Neddick, Ogunquit and Kennebunkport.

We have come to Maine for many years.This is one of the best places we have rented.

PS: To regulars visitors, Brown's Ice Cream is closed (permanently) - but try Dunne's just across from Nubble Lighthouse. Same great ice cream - better view.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

Becky and Neal have thought of everything, even a little sewing kit. Great kitchen with microwave, coffee maker, blender, trash compactor, dish washer, disposal, nice oven, fridge/freezer, toaster AND toaster ove and evrything you would want in a kitchen. I think there is even an electric mixer. It just goes on with all sorts of board games, cards, videos etc... Beds are very comfortable and the house stays quite cool with opening sky lights and window fans. The Hot Tub is great and so is the balcony above it from the Master Bedroom. The bikes made it easy for me to drop off the family at the beach, avoiding the $20 parking, then drive back to the house and pedal my way back to the beach. End of day I went and fetched the car in just a few minutes. We probably would have walked but my Mum was with us and it would be too far for her. Really great place. Oh yeah, very clean, as described and pictured.
