Spend your vacation in our comfortable Moody Point beach home. Our Sunshine Shack is located just steps away from the Atlantic Ocean at the end of a safe and quiet dead end street with only three other houses on the road. We have lovingly updated this cottage and this is the first season that we are offering this as a rental. We hope the details and effort will show how excited we are to share our cottage and beautiful Moody, Maine with other families and friends. Come see what is so special about the Wells, Moody, Ogunquit and Kennebunk beaches, restaurants and activities.
Our two story Sunshine Shack is filled with sun and is appointed with comfort and pleasant coastal colors and textures. We have 3 bedrooms and can sleep up to 9-10 comfortably (Bedroom one has 1 Queen, Bedroom two has 1 Queen and 1 Twin, Bedroom three a true family suite has 1 Full, 1 Twin daybed, and 1 Twin Bunk Bed. Linens are provided to guests who wish to book a one week stay or longer. Cottage Linens is a local linen rental company that is available if you wish to rent linens for those who book for less than a week stay.
( There are two bathrooms (one full and one 3/4) and a full custom kitchen with bar seating for four. The kitchen seamlessly flows into a sitting area which then gives way to the dining area. The dining table seats 6 and is positioned in order to enjoy the ocean views out of the eight foot slider that opens to the deck. The upstairs is very open and makes for an excellent entertaining area. Open the newly installed oversized sliding door and let the sight, sound, and smell of the ocean fill the cottage and your heart.
Our air conditioned, beach cottage includes a 46” Flat Screen TV which is mounted above a gas fireplace. We have WiFi and an office space downstairs for someone who was unable to completely leave work behind and a Play Station for the occasional and sometimes welcomed rainy day. Our kitchen has a combination of granite counter tops and warm butcher block surfaces, stainless steel appliances, and all the cooking and dining items you may need. We also have a beautiful large gas fire pit that sits off our deck where you can have a glass of your favorite summer beverage in the glow of fire light all while listening to the waves crash the shore just 50 yards away. Outdoors we have a patio table on the deck and a small conversation patio set. A good sized yard, some hammock chairs, lawn games and plenty of areas and activities to enjoy outside of the cottage.
We do have some beach chairs and 2 beach cruisers bikes but we suggest you might bring your own beach chairs, boogie boards and bikes to ensure that you have enough.
Some of the places we really enjoy in the Wells/Ogunquit area include:
Wells Harbor where they have restaurants, a free concert every Saturday evening (in season) in the gazebo, a great playground, and a working dock where you can watch the lobstermen come and go, take a fishing charter, catch crabs, or rent kayaks and paddle boards.
Wells Beaches are made up of miles of sandy and salty goodness. They include Moody Beach, the Main Beach (trolley stop) Crescent Beach and Drakes Island Beach. These are all great places to fly kites, discover sea life in tide pools and jump over or run from waves.
Laudholm Farm and the Rachel Carson Preserve are both in Wells and are excellent nature centers where one can Bird watch and walk along trails and see the beautiful transition from Maine woodlands to freshwater estuaries to saltwater marsh life.
In Ogunquit we enjoy going to Perkins Cove (trolley stop). This is either the start or the finish of Marginal Way, a coastline walking path with perhaps the most picturesque and bold views of the Atlantic ocean that you will ever find. Ogunquit has many great restaurants, a nationally recognized beach, a good nightlife and a world renowned Play House. The best part is that it is the next town over and only a short drive or trolley ride from our cottage.
We have provided internet links in our online guest book to some of our favorite places in the area and have also included a few “secret spots” in a booklet in the cottage. We live and work in the area and will always try to be available for questions regarding the cottage and things to do. We truly want whoever rents our Sunshine Shack to have the best time and feel like they got to know our coastal community and love the whole experience as much as we do.
This year we are including a $100 gift certificate to the Fisherman's Catch Restaurant if you book at least a one week stay.
