About the property

Duplex Cottage, 3 bedrooms 1 bath, sleeps 7

The cottage is located on South Tibbetts Ave, Moody Beach, Wells, Maine. A short 400 yd. walk to much sought after, beautiful Moody Beach. This cottage has two units that feel like separate cottages. This unit has 1 bedroom downstairs along with a 3/4 bath. Upstairs are the other 2 bedrooms. The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed, one upstairs bedroom has a queen bed and the other upstairs bedroom has 1 full bed and two twin beds. There are two decks with this unit. One with a picnic table. Moody Beach is a family oriented community tucked on the ocean side of Route 1. You are close to Oqunquit and Wells shopping without the commercial aspects. So it is the best of both worlds. The Hannaford grocery store is just 5 mins. away. The beach is amazing. At low tide it provides lots of room to play those beach games, build sandcastles, take long walks all the way to Ogunquit or just hang out. The waves provide hours of entertainment for body surfers and boogie boarders. If you are a hardy walker you can even walk from our cottage to the cliff walk in Ogunquit. Moody is a private beach. The closest access point to this unit is Public access # 2. This public access area and space on it in the summer is at a premium. So be sure to get there early if it is not low tide! There are many other public beaches as well in the area including the beach at Laudholm Farm. Usually a daily fee is connected with usage at these other public beaches. The salt water marsh behind the cottage is fun to explore in the 2 kayaks that we provide and are shared 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 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 and drug stores, Dunkin Donuts, Laundromats, Ogunquit Village, Qgunquit Playhouse, Perkins Cove, Wells beaches, Wells Reserve at Laudholm , Mt Agamenticus, etc. Let's not forget about the famous Scoop Deck for ice cream on those warm summer nights. In the off season the cottage has cozy radiant heat.

The pictures on this site are only of the East unit. Please see listing #151625 for information about our 4 bedroom, 8 person West unit.There is parking for 2 cars with this 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 Southern Coast

We just love the Moody Beach experience. It feels to us the best of all worlds. Close enough to great restaurants, grocery stores, ice cream shops, kittery outlets yet tuck into a quiet residential area on the beach side of Route 1. It is a quick short walk to the beach. Our favorite months are June and September and October. It is a little calmer time of year. In June you have the longest days and in Sept. & Oct. you have the fall foliage! We have loved working on and updating the cottage over the years of owning it and stay very involved in the rental of the cottage even cleaning it ourselves on the changeover days. The new granite counters and custom cabinets in this unit make it even more enjoyable. We hope you will come and try out our little peace of heaven.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here at 'Connections' again ! It's well located , a short walk from the beach . The cottage and grounds are extremely well maintained , it's like a home away ( no pun intended ) from home for us ! The listing is accurate in all respects . The owners are just an email away and respond quickly . We would definitely recommend this cottage to our friends and family . The grocery store ( Hannaford's ) is just a few minutes away as are several restaurants ( Billy's Chowder House , The Bull and Claw , The Weathervane ) . We're close to Kennebunkport , Ogunquit and about 30 minutes away from the outlets in Kittery .

We can't wait to arrive once again. Love it!

  • 5 of 5

We found the perfect annual vacation location! The distants to and from the beach is perfect, not too far but yet a pleasant walk or ride on the bikes.

A wonderfully comfortable house. I love sitting on the front porch after a nice long night time walk on the beach.

I never want to leave but I know the excitement will return next year...

Great place to stay, walk to beach, very clean

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting this cottage for 15 years, LOVE IT. Very comfortable and relaxing. Clean rooms and good sized. Fully equipped kitchen, shower, all amenities of home; cable tv, dvd player, books and a grill for cookouts. Quiet street.5 minute walk to beach and 5 minute drive to grocery stores, ice cream shops, gift shops, miniature golf, Ogunquit beach, Perkins Cove, Marginal Way, including restaurants; Mike's Clam Shack and The Steak House which we visit every year. Walk on Moody beach in Wells down to Ogunquit beach with beautiful views including sightings of deer, cranes and geese on the marsh in back of the cottage. Enjoyed biking on side streets and fishing on the beach. Owners are very accommodating and always updating the cottage. Can't wait to come back for our 16th year and would and have highly recommended this cottage to family and friends.

We had a great stay here in 2013!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and kids along with myself have been coming to Moody Beach for a July vacation for 7 years now and must say that our stay here at Connections was one of the best. We were greated by the owner upon arrival and she quickly explained everything we needed to know about the place. The girls loved their bedroom and there is plenty of room downstairs to sit and relax after a day at the beach. It sits perfectly on Tibbets Road and the girls loved riding their bikes up and down the street. I was able to ride with them as the rental comes with bikes for adults to use. We grilled, used the kitchen and felt right at home for the entire week. My only wish is that we could return in 2014 but because of work commitments this summer we are unable to make it up to Moody this year but we can assure you we will be contacting them in 2015 to see what week we can get. Truly a great place to stay!
