About Jeff Kuhn

My wife and I have been vacationing in Maine for years. We have brought our children to Wells each summer to enjoy the gorgeous beaches, ocean, Marginal Way, mini-golf courses, shops and the entire area. We purchased our beach home in 2015 and extensively renovated the home inside and out. We invite you to be our guests at Ocean Lure.

Perfect rental house

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week at Ocean Lure and absolutely loved it. When we arrived at the house Jeff was there to welcome us, gave us a tour of the property, and several recommendations of things to see and do in the area. We could not believe all of the extras that were provided in the house, we truly didn't need to bring anything other than our clothes. We made use of the beach equipment, bikes, grill, kitchen supplies and the other amenities provided. We felt so at home, welcomed, and like we were important to Jeff. We couldn't have asked for a better stay and hope to stay at Ocean Lure again. Thanks for everything Jeff!!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you and your family stay at Ocean Lure. We are thrilled you explored the area and enjoyed some of our favorite restaurants. What a treat to spend part of Easter on the beach with 85 degree weather! It was wonderful that you enjoyed Maine and our home. You certainly took outstanding care of our home. Glad you had the opportunity to use our bikes to explore Wells and Ogunquit. We look forward to having you return to Ocean Lure for your next vacation! Thanks for all you did for us.

Ocean get aways in February are great.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was top notch and we didn't want for anything. Weather was crisp but sunny and we were still able to walk on the beach, enjoy the ocean and fine dining and shopping in the area.

Best beach cottage, best owners!!

  • 5 of 5

This adorable beach house, impeccably decorated and provisioned, was the perfect place for our family Christmas dinner! Seven of us were here opening presents, chatting, eating, and just enjoying each other. Three generations together (and a fourth on its way in May!!)

From the moment we met Jeff in person at the front door, we felt truly welcomed. He had everything here we could possibly want to be comfortable. Look forward to being here in warmer weather to enjoy the yard and all the beach toys!

Thank you again. Jeff and his wife, Daryl, have done a great job with this wonderful place!

Glad you found we had everything you needed.

All you need is a tooth brush...

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Lure is a pristine cottage, in a charming village, on a perfect shoreline that is lush with natural beauty, and dotted with soul stirring vistas. We were delightfully comfortable here among the melding themes of sea turtles, sea horses and the Atlantic Ocean itself. We'd come back in an instant if that is what the future brings. There was so much to see and do; and yet there is so much more to experience and enjoy. And great eateries at every turn.This is a fabulous part of the world.

Perfect home, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The Ocean Lure is a perfect getaway for a couple looking to relax or a family. Everything you need is there, the location is central to everywhere and the light at the end of the road is a blessing. We ate every meal in, used the grill one day for lunch and dinner. There are many restaurants within walking and driving distance. And there are wonderful beaches, our favorite being Foot Bridge beach. We met Jeff upon our arrival and he was extremely helpful.

We are planing another trip to the Ocean Lure in the near future. Thanks again for a great home, that felt like our home.

Located just east of Route 1, within walking distance to the beach, restaurants and trolleys. Enjoy the white sand beaches of the Southern Maine coast. Walk the Marginal Way or visit the Rachel Carson Refuge to take in some local bird watching. Relax at the beach, at a local restaurant or in the peaceful private backyard. If shopping is more your style, the outlets in Kittery and Freeport are just a short drive away. Local bars and theaters provide night time entertainment.
