Well equipped cottage...good size for couple.

Short walk to Wells Beach.

Of course having beautiful weather is a perk.

Great value for short weekend

  • 4 of 5

We found the cabin to be just the right size, however, the pull out couch bed is really uncomfortable - we should have brought the air mattress. The queen bed was comfy though. The cabin is completely open concept, so if you're staying with another couple (like we were), be prepared to share everything (snores, flatulence, etc.)! It's super close to the beach - but the access is non existent around high tides (we were OK with this). Also very easy walking distance to Main Street in Wells and it's beach access. It was great value for the short stay - there is only a stand up shower (for those who are curious with kids still only taking baths). Super clean accommodations (and yes, I checked for bed bugs in the mattress cracks and hairs behind the toilet - NONE to be found hooray!). There is no AC if you are looking to book in high-heat seasons, but with the windows open and fans running, it was perfect temperature!

Owners were excellent at communication and feedback! We would return here again for another impromptu beach retreat!

Great retreat cottage!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful getaway in a cute cottage. I met the owners briefly, but they allowed for privacy. Easy access to the beach was wonderful at such an economical rate.

Septembre at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year renting this cozy cottage and we were not disappointed in our decision. As in the past year the cottage was very clean and the bed comfortable. It has all your basic needs. The cottage is in a quiet neighbourhood which is steps away from the beach. September is a great month to vacation at Wells Beach. The weather is hot and sunny, the ocean is warm, beautiful sunsets, NO crowds and everything is on sale. The owners Calla & Arthur are wonderful people, they truly care about their guests. We feel very much at home here. I would definitely recommend this cottage.

A Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage for one week in August/September 2013. A cute, open concept cottage. It was clean and comfortable. The owners are nice & accommodating. .Location, location, location, it is truly steps away from the beach. It was perfect for morning coffee by the ocean! You are a short walk to Wells Center, where you can hop the Trolley, eat Chowder and browse a gift shop. You are a very short drive into the town of Wells, where you will find a Hannaford, an IGA and local fish markets. Go to Mikes Clam Shack, they have the best chowder and our new discovery the Scoop Deck for ice cream. You are about 20 minutes to Kennebunkport and the Kittery Outlets.

I would definitely recommend this property.
