Wonderful vacation home!
How very pleased we were when we arrived to find this exceptionally clean, comfortable, very spacious, and fully equipped vacation home. The location is great, in a lovely quiet neighbourhood. The main and first attraction for us was being allowed to bring not one, but two, doggies!!! Zoey and Millie enjoyed their very first ever trip to the oceanside! They also relaxed in the fantastic sun room and also, ran around in the fenced back yard. A cute little chipmunk has taken up residence back there, and can be spotted frequently. Check the plastic tubing, coming down from the downspout!
We were very lucky to have a full week of sunny weather, so we did alot of exploring both by foot and by car. We went to Perkins Cove, the beach at Drake's Island, the Harbour, the Rachel Carson Wildlife Conservatory, Kennebunk Port, Ogunquit, etc.etc. And of course, Moody BEACH!!! Ah, the beach....love it~ Peaceful, uncrowded, breathtakingly gorgeous! One of our discovers was a small trailer set up on a little incline right on the main road where a guy has just recently opened a little "LOBSTER ROLL" restaurant. Absolutely FANTASTIC, for $13 you get the most delicious, fully loaded, FRESH lobster roll, we've ever tasted! When he is open, he has colorful flags flapping in the wind. Worth the price and the stop.
Tom and Kate are excellent hosts, ensuring that all needs and wants are met. There is information galore displayed on the dining room table, and they are always just a phone call away, if need should arise. I absolutely would recommended this vacation home.
Our experience there was nothing but pleasant, relaxing, enjoyable and as another "reviewer" mentioned, the only time we were moody....was when our time was up!!!
One final comment: Thank you Tom and Kate, for having the insight to welcome dogs into your home. I am sure that many folks have experienced the frustration of trying to find suitable "pet-friendly" accommodations, and also, of finding a place that will let you leave your dogs behind for a while. Some places let you bring your dog, but don't want you to leave them "home alone". How silly is that?! Doggies simply CANNOT always come with!!!! On that note, Zoey and Millie say a big, sincere thank you, as well!
To anyone remotely considering this vacation home in the future, go for it, you will not regret it~

Owner's Response: We could not have said it better ourselves! Our goal has always been to provide a place where our guests can rest and relax at the house and local beaches, or enjoy and explore all Wells, Ogunquit and Kennebunkport has to offer. These guests did a lot of both! The best part of course is to have the whole family along because we believe your dogs are part of the family. Hope to see you folks next year!
