About Jeff Kuhn

We have brought our children to Wells each summer to enjoy the gorgeous beaches, ocean, Marginal Way, mini-golf courses, shops and the entire area. We purchased our beach home in 2015 and extensively renovated the home inside and out. We invite you to be our guests at Ocean Lure.

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.

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!

This was our third summer at Jeff and Daryl's house and it was perfect!! The house has everything you need; is centrally located and a pleasure to stay at. You just need to bring your clothes. Jeff and Daryl have thought of everything else. You can enjoy all of York, Ogunquit, Wells and beyond from their prime location. We highly recommend their property!

Great location, well maintained, owners pleasant and easy to work with. Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Very cleann tidy and comfortable. New appliances, central air a plus. Delightful and well maintained fenced in back yard with patio and patio set with large gas grill that worked well. Owners provide all essentials and more. No need to bring sheets, towels of any kind, beach chairs, rolling cooler, beach caddy, beach umbrellas, sand toys, bicycles and helmets, window fans, laundry detergent, fabric softener, dryer sheets, wooden drying rack, dish soap, sponges, tin foil, dishwasher detergent, night lights, paper towel, boxes of tissues and TP all provided! Everything in great condition-like new beach chairs and umbrellas. Kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, silverware, Keurig coffee maker, full refrigerator, microwave, small stove and oven. Kitchen is small and compact but has everything you need. Even chip bag clips and a flash light is provided. House sleeps 6 but is ideal for 2 to 4 people. We had 6 and because some had to sleep on tbe pull out sofa in the livingroom all had to go to bed at the same time. Also with a one cup coffee maker the kitchen was a traffic jam in the mornings.

Neighborhood is quiet and a quick bike ride to the beach. Beach is a half mile from house. Public beach access is a mile from house. We were very comfortable in the house and enjoyed all the extras that were provided. So nice to have a washer and dryer right there along with a dishwasher and range top with a built in griddle. We were very pleased with all Ocean Lure has to offer and can't wait to return.

Relax and enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

This rental house was accessible to many activities in the area, making our vacation in Maine relaxing and fun. The accommodations were comfortable for our 5 adults and two babies. It had enough sleeping area and the washer and dryer was essential with two babies! We enjoyed the backyard eating homemade sandwiches in the sun. This rental offers the ability to eat inside or out. They also provide activities if you wanted to just stay at the rental - like croquet or grilling a homemade meal - as well as many things for an easy trip to the beach -bikes to get you there, sand toys to play with, and chairs to sit and relax on the beach! This is an exceptional rental - I would highly recommend it!
