Our love for the beaches of Maine goes
back to the 1920’s when Phil with his family and Muriel with hers
vacationed at York Beach and Wells Beach respectively. Together Muriel
and Phil and their children continued the tradition for the next 50
years. Then in 1971 we made the big leap and bought a cottage on Moody
Beach not as a summer cottage but as our year-round home. We
transplanted our entire family of six kids from Sudbury, Mass. to Wells,
Maine. There were major adjustments to be made but, however difficult
they were, the great joy of living right on one of the most beautiful
beaches in the world was worth it.
Over the next decade we were able to
purchase several other beach properties which quickly put us in the
beach rental business. The pleasure of sharing our beautiful beach
with others made the hard work involved worth while. The majority of
our renters have been returning for many years, some for as long as 30
years. We have watched their children grow from babies to mothers
True to the prediction of our daughter,
Dawn, 17 at the time, that this move to the beach would certainly keep
our family together – it certainly has! They spend weekends and
vacations with us and we surely love it!
Our love of people and, yes, of animals
too – we welcome pets – and our relaxed lifestyle have made this the
ideal business for us even now in our senior years.
