Great place to stay. Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

We picked the perfect week. Extremely hot and humid in New Hampshire. Cozy, quite and comfortable. Well equipped. Would rent it again in a heartbeat.

It was passable but very disappointing.

  • 3 of 5

Overall it was ok.

The oven looked like it had not been cleaned in years which set the tone for the cleanliness. The carpet & sofa were extremely dirty. No bare foot walking around for us. The screen above the stove was full of grease.

The bathroom was clean.

I washed every dish & utensil before using any.

We were disappointed, unfortunately.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you were disappointed and we will address your concerns. I have scheduled a carpet and upholstery cleaner for the rug and sofa and will insure the oven, surrounding area and dishes are cleaned. Offering a clean vacation home is important to us. Thank you for the information.

Quiet Neighbourhood, Close to everyting

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!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had a good time. Thank you for the feedback on the mattress - I will see about an upgrade! I hope you'll visit again.

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.
