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, Perkins Cove, Wells beaches, Wells Reserve at Laudholm , Mt Agamenticus, Old Marsh Golf Course, 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 and a Rinnai heater. There is parking for 2 cars. Living room area is seating for 6 only. Dining table is for 6 maybe seven seating. Picnic table outside should handle 8 people.

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 Wells
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.

Best place to spend a week with family
We decided to go big for my mother's 60th birthday and chose the Connections house in Wells, Maine. One of the owners, Becky, was immediately communicative and supportive of our gift. She even sent pictures of the beach to give to my mother to help her get excited. Good start!
Becky provided comprehensive information before hand through HomeAway to prepare us for what we'd need, and they provided a lot of nice homey things it was nice to not have to pack.
The unit was well-appointed and clean when we arrived. It is 0.5 miles from the beach; a short walk that we took often! Becky was always responsive by text message and we saw her frequently. At one point during a heat wave we mentioned buying an A/C unit and she said don't worry about it! She came over and installed three for us so we could keep us and our three kids cool. Everything else we needed she was immediately responsive and helpful. She also provided local information and beach info to make it easier for us to stay there.
This was a beautiful unit close to the beach at a reasonable price when compared to similar offerings. Becky went out of her way to be available and helpful to us when needed. I would highly recommend staying here!
Perfect week in Moody beach
We had great week at Connections in Moody beach. The cottage is very clean with a really nice kitchen area and is very close to the beach, which was ideal for the family. The owners were easy to reach for any questions that we had during our stay. Overall I recommend this rental for anyone looking for a great vacation in Moody beach!
I'm so glad you had such a great week. Thanks so much for the kind review. It was a pleasure having you. Hopefully we will see you again!
Super property, small but cozy
We enjoy the fact that it's close from the beach.
The kitchen is wonderfull to have nice talks
The house is clean and lovely
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 are so happy you had another great vacation and enjoy the cottage as much as we do!! See you next year!
Great getaway......home away from home!!!
Super renovations with all of the amenities of home....gorgeous , spacious kitchen with beautiful island makes it very family friendly. Very comfortable sleeping arrangements.

Thanks so much for the kind words!! We are so glad you like the renovations!! We hope to see you again in 2016!!
We can't wait to arrive once again. Love it!
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...
