About Rosanne McManus

We are a family who has rented a vacation home in Wells for nearly 30 years and with college finished for the kids we bit the bullet and bought our own beach place! We both work so hard that we love nothing more than coming to Maine each summer, spending our days at the beach with the occasional night out in either Ogunquit or Kennebunkport. We love to have long walks early in the morning so we can get in some exercise before we spend our days sitting at the beach. We read, we play in the water, my mother is the family bocci ball champion and of course the kids love to play baseball, lacrosse and football for hours on end.

Rosanne McManus purchased this house in 2014

Why Rosanne McManus chose Wells

We bought our place because I wanted to be close to the water. I want guests to be able to come and go when they please, no planning necessary when you can walk over to the beach at any time. You also realize after spending each summer vacation at the beach that you need enough space in the house for those rainy afternoons when everyone curls up with a good book or sits down to watch their favorite movie. But more importantly, there is no place better than Moody beach.

Car: necessary

Perfectly located between Kennebunkport and Ogunquit, there are too many restaurants to try and lots of shopping to keep you busy after the beach. If golfing is a must, there are dozens of courses within a short drive to try during your stay. The Ogunquit Playhouse offers a wonderful lineup of summer theater or drive to Portsmouth, NH to try theater in the park for the entire family. Miniature golf or a trip to the water park are also choices for the kids when you want to take a break from the beach, or drive to Portland for a trip to the museums and a walk around the harbor.
