About Holly Fidrych

Holly is a speech/language pathologist, author, and artist. She enjoys nature, beautiful architecture, decorating, gardening, and most of all-Ogunquit beach where she loves to take 8:00 am yoga classes, walk the white sand beach, ride down the river, boogie board in the long, rolling surf, and watch the ocean change colors as the sun sets and the Finest-kind sail boat glides out of sight as it heads to Perkins Cove for the night.

Why Holly Fidrych chose Southern Coast of Maine

Wander Hill is magical!

What makes this house unique

Relaxation and tranquility among nature's beauty.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved this home and surprised by quality of construction and furnishing ­

best rental house we have ever stayed in. Our family was in town due to son

having lead role in Billy Elliot at Ogunquit Playhouse and could not have

felt more at home. Wonderful open kitchen for entertaining accompanied by

spacious and covered patio with very nice and comfortable outdoor furniture

spent much time in this area. We appreciated private setting of home,

tucked away in wooded area. Over the course of 6 weeks, we stayed in 3

different homes, this one was by far the best. Would have preferred to have

stayed there the entire time but did not book early enough (hint).

Amazing property just minutes from several towns, shops, and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing, just as pictured. The property is tucked back into the woods so you feel very secluded even though you're actually very close to several small towns. This was perfect for an adults only get-away. More than enough room for the 6 of us. I definitely recommend this property.

Luxurious Maine Escape!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a last minute getaway to Ogunquit and was unable to take an entire week off from work. This rental was available nightly and did not require a 6 night stay like most rentals. The owner, Holly, had a quick response time and was very open to questions and phone calls. She also allowed our friends to bring their dog to her beautiful home which was a very nice surprise! An instruction packet for the house was provided which was neatly typed and highlighted in the areas which are important. This is also included online when you book the house. It was nice to know the expectations of the owner beforehand so that there are no surprises with the security deposit at the end of your stay.

The house itself is magnificent with a large gourmet dream kitchen, open floor plan, and very very clean. The porch was our favorite place to relax and have drinks. The location is great as it sits between York and Ogunquit so we were able to get to both them quite quickly.

Overall, I am very happy with the rental and would definitely recommend this house to other renters.

Spectacular home in the woods

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this gorgeous home for a week in early June for our destination wedding. We had looked at properties on the water but were won over by the peaceful, private setting in the woods, the classic architecture and the first-class amenities of this house. The decor is elegant yet relaxed and every detail is curated with obvious care, from the art (some pieces by the owner of the house), to the eclectic assortment of rugs, and the furniture - a perfect mix of antique and new. For such a grand home, there is nothing fussy about it. We were at ease right away, and yet felt utterly pampered. The house and grounds were ideally suited for our event due to their size and layout. We had our wedding in the side yard, our reception on the veranda, and cake in the great room. The owners were friendly and responsive, and seemed to genuinely care that our stay in their home be memorable. We also rented the guest house for most of our stay and highly recommend it as well. We can also recommend our florist (Calluna, a recommendation from our host) caterer (Harvest and Plate, affiliated with Village Food Market), photographer (Amy Donle) and officiant (Frances Reed), all of whom helped make our wedding perfect in every way. Standout restaurants were Roost and Clay Hill Farm. We wish we could have stayed another week in Cape Neddick and Ogunquit... we'll be back!

A wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Wander hill is the place I knew would be perfect for my wedding. When we decided to get married I thought about doing something different, I wanted to have a very intimate party and cerimony, something that would make the people who were invited to feel special to be there and have a good time with us. I began to browse for houses and this marvelous place crossed my path, as soon as we saw it, me and my husband fell in love with it.

The three days we spend there were great, the space is unbelievable. The grounds were nicely done and taken care of. We hold our party outside, the way I dreamed about. The day was gorgeous and perfect.

Holly is a very nice person to deal with, she thought about details to make everything neat and was very supportive every time I had a question.

I'm sure I want to go back and stay over again. I had a great time, and this place now is part of our history, a special piece of land that will always remind us of the day and where our family began.

Luxury Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

It's not possible to say enough good things about our stay at Holly's rental home. Beautiful both inside and out, this home exceeded our expectations and was an extremely comfortable home in which to stay. The inside is spacious and tastefully decorated. The outside grounds are well maintained and immaculate. Whether you enjoy being inside or out, this property makes it easy enjoy both with a great open patio and also covered veranda. The home is convenient to all of the area's local attractions, or large enough to spend a day at-home should the weather not cooperate, or you find you'd like a day at home. We'll absolutely return to this rental the next-time we visit Maine.

Gracious Living at Its Finest !

  • 5 of 5

Be prepared to walk into the pages of Architectural Digest when you enter this magnificent home. The picture cannot do justice to the house and its grounds. The home is tastefully furnished with the highest quality materials and offers a spa-like getaway from your regular life. The kitchen is a chef's delight and fully equipped with every utensil you would ever need, plus the spices to make a real gourmet meal. The panelled den overlooks the woods and lets you read in peace and quiet. The master bath has a double whirlpool tub plus glass enclosed shower. All of the appliances including the washer/dryer and high-end European models. Based upon the forest location, totally surrounded by woods, I suggest that this be considered an adults only resort. But if you are looking for a romantic getaway, then this is the place to rent!

Be one with nature as you bask in this wonderful home where floor to ceiling windows bring the outside in. Experience privacy looking out at a wall of rock ledge as you shower in the 6 ft by 6 ft glass shower or soak in the Jacuzzi tub. Read on the viranda as the humming birds fly through during the day and dine alfresco under the moon and stars well into the night in this mosquito free, very romantic environment.

If you choose to stay in, call Perkins Cove Lobster pound who will deliver cooked lobsters to your door.

Grab the beach chairs, beach towels, and boogie boards as you head out to Ogunquit beach where you can ride down the Ogunquit River and out into the surf, or walk the 3 mile, white sand beach.

Return home to the peacefulness of Wander Hill for refreshing cocktails on the veranda where there is always a breeze.

If you choose to go out, then head down to Perkins Cove where you can walk the Marginal Way cliff walk back to the beach, take a sight seeing cruise, and watch the boats and footbridge from the upper deck at Barnacle Billy's while sipping on their signature 'Hurricane'. Then head over to MC's for a delightful dinner.

While at Perkins Cove,you may wish to eat outside by the boats or take food home. The lobster specials are a must at The Footbridge take out. Their fried oysters, fried claims, butter filled lobster rolls, or swordfish sandwiches can not be beat.

If sailing interests you, go to the Finest Kind at Perkins Cove where your neighbor, Goat (Grant Hubbard), will take you out for a late afternoon sail followed by choosing lobsters from his creates called 'cars' right there in the water at the dock. Take the lobsters back to Ledgewood where you can cook the fresh crustaceans and enjoy your feast on your private deck listening to music of your choice.

Travel south down Shore Rd to enjoy the crashing waves on the rocky coast line. Shore Rd brings you to Victorian York beach where you can play in the arcade, watch taffy being pulled, purchase souvenirs, and visit York's Wild Kingdom. Continue on Rt 1-A to Nubble light and York Beach.

Enjoy shopping for antiques or bargains at the Kittery Outlets or travel north to the outlets at Freeport. If historical cities interest you, travel 20 minutes south to Portsmouth, 1 hour south to Boston, or 45 minutes north to Portland.

Whatever is your pleasure, we have it here to enjoy in southern Maine at the top of Wander Hill.

Please inquire about pets.
