Kates Cottage was purchased in 2000 by a retiring couple whose life long dream was to live near the ocean. The structure needed everything. It's been a labor of love to rebuild the entire house with the final and most major renovation over 2007-8. The owner lost her spouse in 2009 and rents in summer to pay down the huge construction loan and keep this loved property .
Kathryn Diggs purchased this house in 2000
As former residents of both Massachusetts and New Hampshire our weekends were spent driving to the coast to dine or stay in Hampton, NH, and Ogunquit, Maine. We knew immediately this was the house. Walking distance to the water and beaches, great restaurants everywhere, endless activities, the friendliest people in the shops and town hall, and we happen to go to the church that is across the street.
The floor plan allow for guests to have group and private space.
The three bedrooms are each separate from one another with easy access to bathrooms. There are 4 decks each furnished differently, the master suite has a chair and a half for reading or TV watching. The kitchen table has large cushioned chairs suitable for leisurely meals and long game nights. The rear faces a woodsy private view. Out front is a path on the side of the road for walking to the ocean and beaches.
My family and I loved staying at Kate's Cottage! The house was beautiful, with a very nice layout. The house was very clean which is a big thing for us. All 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms provided my parents, husband and I, daughter, and my step-daughter and her friend plenty of room. The location was great since it was very close to everything Wells, Ogunquit, and Kennebunk has to offer. We liked being able to walk a short 10 minutes from the house to the ocean, we then walk another 5 and were on the beach. The owner made everything very easy beginning from booking and left us plenty of detailed information before and upon our arrival which was helpful. We enjoyed BBQing and having dinner on the back deck. The clothes line was handy for hanging up wet towels and suits after a day at the beach. Having a washer and dryer to use also came in handy as well. Overall we had a great experience in a very modern home with lovely furnishings. We hope to visit again!
We stayed in this home a few weeks ago and wow were we surprised! Bigger than it looks in the pictures, plenty of space for 6 people, wide open bright kitchen and the perfect location. I've stayed in plenty of places in Wells and have never been happier. Walking distance to the rocky coast (good for crab exploring!) and to Scoop Deck for delicious ice cream. The description was right on point, every amenity we could have asked for and very clean. I agree with the review before me though, small backyard and slightly busy street not great for children, but perfect for adults. One floor living provided more space than i was expecting, especially with two bathrooms.The kitchen was perfect even with a few people cooking at once. Huge fridge with ample space for food. The beds were incredibly comfortable, so much that we didn't want to go home. Having a washer and dryer was very helpful as well. I would recommend this property to everyone. Really hoping that we can return next year! Love love love this house!!!
We stayed at this beautiful home last summer and are sorry we cannot return this year. Kate is wonderful to deal with and the pictures accurately reflect this modern home. We found the home very clean, which has been a problem for us with other rentals. The kitchen is fully stocked and was very comfortable for our nightly cards and games. The larger Wells beaches were a five minute drive away and smaller beaches were walkable. The street is rather busy but there are sidewalks for walking and we enjoyed early morning walks daily. The only drawback of the house was that there was not much of a yard. We highly recommend this property and would return in a heartbeat.
