Plenty of availability in June & September with huge discounts on weekly rates! We just discounted the week of 8/25 to off peak pricing, this is a steal for Labor Day weekend and the weather is usually great!

New for the 2018 season we've done a ton of work updating our home over this offseason and are so excited for both our existing renters and new renters to experience our home. This year we've added a "bump out" extension to our first floor providing about 100 extra square feet of living space. We updated our kitchen with a new electric range, refrigerator, countertops, and hardwood floors. Even our bathrooms have been updated with new fixtures, tub and shower!

This lovely beach house sits directly across the street from the beach with beautiful views of the Ocean and sunsets over the marsh. Moody Beach is a private beach, with only 4 public access paths covering 1.5 miles of beach - our home is located a little under 100 feet from one of those paths making it one of the most conveniently located rental homes on Moody. It was designed for a large family to enjoy each other or find solitude to read a book or maybe take a nap. A deck at the rear overlooks a well manicured lawn, surrounded by bushes and plantings providing a very private place to relax on one of our chairs or enjoy lunch; perhaps dinner on our table. Two floors boast views of the Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge, Tidal Plain, Moody Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. Five bedrooms, each with accommodations for two. First floor: master bedroom; full bath, washer/dryer; family and dining areas ; breakfast bar, cable TV & and combination VCR/CD player; wireless, custom-designed kitchen includes all the comforts of home including a stove/ oven, refrigerator, microwave, garbage disposal and dishwasher. Complete table settings, glassware, pots and pans are all provided. The entire area overlooks the deck and secluded yard with lawn, sea grass and bushes; beyond to the wildlife refuge and marsh. Outside shower with Hot & Cold water (no privacy). Second floor features beautiful views and includes: a bath with shower and 4 bedrooms. 1 double, 2 twins and 1 set of bunk beds

Please note that while our property is 3 floors, we are only renting out the first and second floor. We use the third floor for storage of personal items. In the past we used our private entrance to the third floor as an owners apartment, but since retirement we do not spend as much time in Moody and have not stayed overnight in over 2 years.

About Vinny Dolan

We fell in love with Moody Beach after spending years renting with our own children, my brother and my mother. During a fall trip to attend a first communion in Maine, our youngest son insisted on driving past Moody to see the beach and see if his "summer friends" were around. As fate would have it, the home that was directly across the street from where we used to rent was for sale! We had recently lost my mother who just loved Moody Beach, using the money we got from selling her house we were able to scrape enough together for the down payment and the rest is history. The name, Ellie Mac, comes from my Mother - she's not only my guardian angel but we consider her the guardian angel of our home.

Vinny Dolan purchased this House in 2000

                                                                The Columbus Day Weekend was our second visit to this comfortable well maintained beach house. The home offers enough space so a family of 8 could easily chat in the cozy living room or play games at the large table overlooking the deck. For people who enjoy walking the beach, exploring the shops in Ogunquit or sampling area seafood restaurants this is the place to be. And if there are any questions about the rental, the owners respond within hours of your email. Would recommend this as a great getaway!

                                                                Fantastic! Loved the house and the location.

                                                                the house is well equipped and comfortable. Our family of 10 really enjoyed our stay. Great location, across from the beach. Owner provided everything we needed and was very friendly. Would certainly recommend it!

                                                                Great family vacation

The location, right across the street from Moody Beach, could not have been better. We definitely hope to come and stay here again.

                                                                Our group of eight Mothers and Daughters spent a weekend in this beautiful home. It was clean, spacious, comfortable and an easy walk to the ocean. There was plenty of room for preparing meals and a large backyard with tables for those wishing to eat outside. The location is handy to Ogunquit Beach where you can explore shops, enjoy a ride on the trolley, feast on Maine seafood or sing karaoke at Maxwell's Pub. It is also a perfect jumping off place for those cycling enthusiasts looking to ride along the Maine coast. Any emails to the landlord were answered quickly and we all agreed it wasa 5 star rental.

                                                                Superb!

                                                                This house was perfect for our family, lots of rooms, and very convinient.

                                                                Only few steps away to the great beach a nice garden where we had our lunches.

                                                                The nearby lobster pound is a real gem, everything we need is very close to, awesome!

                                                                First wonderful trip to Maine

                                                                On arrival we were blessed with fresh cut flowers when we walked in the door. Vinny & Susan were very nice. They let us know that if there was anything we needed to let them know. The house was very close to the beach which we enjoyed walking. My grandson & myself were blessed with a very warm day and was able to get in the ocean. There was a total of 7 staying in the house and there was still room for three more. The living room was a little small but it was fine because we were on the go most of the time. Our ages ranged from 70 down to 14. Would not hesitate to rent again. Thank you Vinny & Susan
