This has become our northern home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Jeff and Daryl have thought of everything (they are just really thoughtful people!) when it comes to comfort in this cute cottage near the beach! We come to see family nearby in York, Manchester, and Boston several times a year and this is our third time here. This time, however, Winter Storm Riley had different plans for us; we couldn't see our son and daughter-in-law in Boston due to the storm surge, so had to spend an extra night here in Wells so Jeff and Daryl were so accommodating in arranging us to stay an extra night (or as long as needed!) with no question. They were so worried about our family down there; wanted to make sure they knew they were welcome here, too, since their place had flooded from the storm. So sweet of them! But our kids had to stay there and keep an eye on the water pumps.... Very caring people. And the area here in Wells/Ogunquit/Moody is such a pleasant place to "be stuck". Love the restaurants, beaches (even in the winter!), shopping, walking, people, it's just a pleasant area. The cottage is so well-appointed and comfortable with everything you could possibly want. We are never disappointed when we "come home" to Ocean Lure. Thank you again, Jeff and Daryl!! Spring is on its way!

Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second Christmas stay at Ocean Lure. Jeff and Daryl are always so accommodating (including a sweet Christmas tree again!) to our needs with everything you could ever want in a comfortable, lovely stay in a great location for us near family. With the weather so crazy with snow and ice this year, they always arranged for the steps and driveway cleared for us which was such a huge help! We will continue to stay at this beautiful beach house close to our family and beach area that we love in winter and other times of the year when we are able! A great location, wonderfully appointed home, and delightful people who care for it! Thank you once again, Jeff and Daryl!

perfect spot for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

Upon arriving Jeff was at the house to greet us and gave us a detailed tour of the house and garden and everything for a comfortable stay. The house is all remodeled in the perfect beach theme decor. The kitchen is well equipped to feed a family of six even though it was just my wife and I. There was a nice place to sit in the garden and use the BBQ. The towels were soft and the shower was refreshing. After our long travels we were running out of clean cloths so the washer and dryer were much needed. The beds worked perfect since my wife likes a soft bed, she got the queen bed, and I like a firm bed, so I slept on the double. There were bicycles to ride, anything you needed for a day at the beach which is only a short beautiful walk down the road. We even walked all the way to Ogunquit along the beach and had a nice lunch at a restaurant called Oarweed.

A short walk to the corner of the street are a couple places to eat and get your lobster roll, and banana split, or a delicious meal and cocktail or beer at the sports bar.

Wells was well located for our day trip to Portland, and Freeport (only 45 minute drive) to get to the many outlets and of course the LL Bean store. We had lunch in Portland at RiRa, a pub located along the wharf. The cuban sandwich and the fish and chips were really really good.

All in all if we were to visit the coast of Maine again we would definitely be stopping at Jeff's place again. Our four nights stay was very peaceful. Thanks for all your hospitality Jeff.

Owner's Response: David, it was a pleasure having you and your wife as our guests at Ocean Lure. I enjoyed meeting both of you and your insight about our apple trees. Daryl and I are pleased to hear you enjoyed walking on the beach, visiting Portland and Freeport, and savoring some of the wonderful restaurants in the area. We sincerely appreciate your kindness and the way you cared for our home. Glad your first New England visit was such a success. We hope to see you again and appreciate your business.

Darling Cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Lure is the perfect place to stay! Jeff and Daryl have done such a great job with the

cottage. It truly felt like home. I was here on a girl's trip and we all absolutely loved it. The

cottage is meticulously maintained and all of the amenities you could ask for. Also,

the owners are very responsive to any questions you may have. I really can't say enough good things about Ocean Lure! Rent it! You will not be disappointed! We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Thanks again, Jeff and Daryl for your graciousness!

Owner's Response: Hi Starla, Cindy, Carol and Trudy.Thank you for the words of praise. Daryl and I were honored to have you as our first guests from the Lone Star state! Your kindness certainly showed throughout the house! Glad you got to see so much of the area! The Hurricane Harvey Gals certainly have a 'can do' attitude weathering the massive storm and still able to travel north to visit the Pine Tree state. We look forward to having you as our guests the next time you visit Maine. Thank you again for choosing Ocean Lure for your vacation!
