Overview

About the property

Charming Ocean Front Home on 4 mile Private Beach

The Elizabeth Grace Cottage was built by our great grandfather and lovingly cared for by our family ever since. It is perched directly on the ocean with steps from the petite lawn lined with beach roses down to a gorgeous four-mile semi-private beach. Spend your perfect summer days swimming, kayaking, taking a morning run or just lounging on the sand and when the day is done, rinse the sand away under the outdoor faucet. Updates have been made with thoughtful attention to detail focused on maintaining the integrity of the original cottage yet equipped with the conveniences necessary for todays modern family.

On the first floor is the ocean front living room, anchored by a beautiful natural fireplace. The fully equipped open concept kitchen/dining is a great spot for a quick lunch or breakfast. Adjacent to the kitchen is a screened in back porch; it’s table for ten is a favorite for ‘al fresco’ dining with easy access to the gas BBQ. There is also a half bath.

Second floor has three bedrooms, one with direct ocean views and the other two have peeks of the ocean. All have full size beds and share a full bath. Up the stairs to the third floor is a converted attic named The Bunkhouse, perfect for kids! Fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves from any bed in the house.

Amenities include: plenty of beach towels, washer/dryer, Keurig coffee maker and hair dryer.

You are one mile away from our family favorite, Wells Beach Lobster Pound where they "cook the lobsters" for your take-out lobster bake at home! Approximately five miles away you can enjoy Perkins Cove, and quaint down town Ogunquit for shopping and dining. Visit the Marginal Way for coastal walks and don’t miss famous Kennebunkport. We welcome you to the magic of the Elizabeth Grace!

A Special spot in the world!

  • 5 of 5

The Elizabeth Grace has been a special place for family celebrations over the years. The screened-in porch is perfect for lobster bake dinners of 10 or 12! There are a few steps down a strong and sturdy walk way right to the beautiful beach and tide pools. All the amenities you want in a beach camp- from the bunk room on the top floor where all the cousins can have a sleep over and listen to the waves as you fall asleep (in every room actually) to the perfectly appointed bedrooms and updated bathroom on the second floor. A fireplace and Tv in the family room are great for cooler nights but we found the table in the family room is the perfect place to play cards with a plate glass view of the ocean. You get the benefit of a small manicured green grass backyard for sunning and bocce ball and the throw back farmers porch around the whole house. We had access to shops and restaurants a 5 minute drive from the house. The owners have taken great care of " Elizabeth Grace" . We had access to the shops and restaurants of nearby Ogunquit and Perkins Cove with in 10-15 minutes. The perfect back drop of charm and comfort for memory making.

Family Memory Maker!

  • 5 of 5

The Elizabeth-Grace is a family memory maker. Four generations of our extended family have enjoyed Moody Beach and the South Coast of Maine from the welcoming arms of this quintessential Maine beach home.

Members of two very geographically diverse lines of my family come together under the roof of the Elizabeth-Grace 2 weeks each year. Family bonds are renewed as we fill the dining room and back porch for Crustacean Night and board games, walk the beach to Ogunquit for brunch, relax on the lawn ocean side and read while taking in the unmatched ocean panorama from the very private north end of the sand crescent that forms Moody Beach, explore the tide pools that magically appear and disappear with each shift of the tide, kayak, bicycle, and watch the sunsets over the marsh. At night, we watch the moon rise over the ocean and stargaze from the comfort of the wrap around porch or the warmth of a crackling beach bonfire, and fall asleep lulled by the ocean. And through it all, we talk and talk…and listen and listen.

Each year we explore the wonderful dining opportunities from Cape Porpoise to the north down to York. The mix of old favorites and newcomers is fun to follow. Few days pass without enjoying lobster in some shape or form. Picking our favorite lobster roll of the year is a much-anticipated rite of our visits to the Elizabeth-Grace.

The owners appreciate the memory making magic of the Elizabeth-Grace, and go out of their way to enhance our stays. From year to year, improvements are made to the cottage. Suggestions are given for new activities. Milestones from our families and theirs are shared. Always a delight, the owners have become fast friends.

Time slows down at the Elizabeth-Grace. Families blossom. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience all this magical place has to offer.

This is a happy place with the best views on Moody Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family has loved staying at the Elizabeth-Grace for two weeks every summer for many years. (From Minnesota yet!) It's a step back to a simpler time, in a very GOOD way (think "The Bobbsey Twins at the Seashore") The owners are delightful. They've always been very responsive and committed to making our stay pleasant and memorable. The house is cheery and well maintained. We always arrive to find some significant addition or improvement from year to year. Because of it's location on the curve in the shoreline, the Elizabeth-Grace has the best views on Moody Beach.

Things we like:

Convenient access to Hannaford grocery store...short drive or bike ride away.

Large open wrap-around porch

Enclosed back porch with very large dining table

Outdoor shower

Grass yard with lots of Adirondack chairs

Ample parking

Quieter north end of beach. No crowds

Some things we like to do:

Walk the beach to the village of Ogunquit (it's about an hour), have breakfast at Cove Cafe then wander around the shops of Perkins Cove.

Bike in the hills west of Route 1 (bike rental is a 15 minute walk from the house)

Kayak to the rocks off Wells Beach to play with the seals (30-40 minutes away by kayak) or to Perkins Cove (longer...)

Throw the frisbee or a baseball, body surf, fly a kite, play Bocce,

Hunt for critters in the tidal pools at low tide.

Bring steamed lobsters home from Wells Lobster Pound for dinner on the large enclosed back porch.

Experience the Scoop Deck for ice cream. (This IS an experience!)

Shop for taffy at the Goldenrod in York.

We highly recommend The Elizabeth-Grace and plan to return.

Elizabeth Grace - exactly as advertised!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our time at the Elizabeth Grace. The property is exactly as advertised on VRBO and through our conversations with the owner before our trip, we were well prepared for our stay in all aspects. From the warm welcome we received to the tips on things to do in the area. The house is rustic (no a/c) but well maintained and perfectly situated at the quiet end of the beach (before the rocks start).
