Why Patrick Wheatley chose Southern Coast of Maine

In 1950, my grandmother bought a cottage from Littlefield's Village just down the road on Route 1. She had it moved to this location and gathered family and friends for meals throughout the summer. She was a waitress in Somerville and whenever she had some extra money she put it into the cottage.

In the mid-1990s my parents retired and renovated it into a four-season home. My sister and I now own the house. While keeping it in the family we're happy to offer it for others' enjoyment.

What makes this house unique

We love the location! A quiet spot, at the end of dead-end street, close to the beach, with lovely views of the Rachel Carson preserve. Three sets of sliding glass doors on the ground floor overlook the Ogunquit river and let the sunshine in. Owner-occupied houses on either side of ours.

A wonderful house, with a great view and a short walk to a beautiful beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this house over NYE. It was a perfect place for family and we enjoyed being close to the beach. We went for good winter walks along the beach. There are also many good restaurants close by. The house itself is very spacious, clean and well equipped. It was also efficiently heated, with a wood fire. So it worked well in winter but would be a perfect spot in summer. Kristin was a highly responsive host and made it all very easy. We hope to be back, so many thanks!

Our stay in this Ogunquit house was fabulous! We can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

My parents, husband and I stayed here 2 nights during our New England trip. The house was perfect. It started with great communication with Kristin and Pat when making the reservation and throughout the stay. The house was immaculate and well-equipped and in the perfect location. We had a fantastic time at the house, Ogunquit and Kennebunkport. We can't wait to come back!!!

So grateful to special hosts

While our trip had to have a few revisions- due to a critical, unexpected illness in the family, Kristin was more than understanding and generous. We look forward to the stabilization of our lives and to hopefully having the opportunity to recuperate at this lovely home!!!!!!!!

Ocean View with Short walk to Footbridge Beach

  • 5 of 5

Four girls in their forty's went away for a long weekend. We loved the clean house we stayed in! The kitchen was well equipped because we ate 2 out of 3 meals at the house. We loved having 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms! My kind of vacation home! The upper deck was perfect and faced the beach. The walk to the beach was perfect! We all loved our walks on the beach and the Marginal Way! Recommend this rental!

Beautiful home in a perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed Memorial Day weekend...This property is in a perfect location where it is very quiet, but still well within walking distance to a beautiful beach. The ocean water in Maine can't be expected to be warm...especially so early in the season...but during low tide hours, the very gently sloped beach is filled with little pools of water that warm up on sunny days and are perfect for little kids to splash around in.

My group was 4 small kids and 3 adults. We all had an amazing time. Plenty of room in the house and the 3 full baths were very nice to have. The upstairs king bed and bath offer a place for Mom and Dad to "get away" just enough...without actually leaving to house. The deck up there is also extremely nice. Sunrises are unbelievable from there or even from inside the upstairs bedroom with its large windows. The sunrise reflects off the water in the adjacent preserve area and makes for a very memorable experience.

I would definitely return. My only suggestion for improvement would be an improved outdoor eating area...maybe a deck off the back or an improved patio in the existing spot. Laundry on the first floor would also be great I suppose.

Great place!
