My husband and I have been spending summer vacations in Wells for almost 30 years. We have created wonderful family memories here and have always dreamed of owning a vacation home in the area. This dream came true in 2010 when my husband spotted this house and decided this was going to become our beach house.

Diane Carrier purchased this house in 2010

I had my reservations about this house! This house was built in the late 1800's by a sea captain. The people we purchased the home from had owned it since the mid 50's and made very little improvements over the years. Let's just say it was a true 'fixer upper' and if my husband wasn't a General Contractor I would have never agreed to the purchase of this house.

It took over a year to obtain approval from the Environmental Protection Agency to start renovations. This meant the house needed to remain true to the original footprint. It was very challenging to add modern day amenities within the existing layout. Meanwhile the house needed to be raised and moved so the existing basement could be filled in and a slab poured for the renovated house to sit. Overall, it was a daunting and amazing process! The renovations were finally completed in the spring of 2012 and we couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome. This very old and neglected house had come to life again!

The views from this house are spectacular! You can sit on the porch and watch sail boats pass and seals at play. From the side porch you can watch the various birds and wildlife in the marshland and the researchers tracking them. There is something to see from every room in the house!

Crescent Beach is a just a brief walk from the house. Moody Beach is approximately a 15 minute walk. On occasion, we've taken the trolley into Ogunquit to have dinner and then walked from Ogunguit Beach to Moody Beach back to the house.

A PERFECT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
I second the first review without hesitation. The house is absolutely immaculate and extremely well supplied. The breeze off the ocean is delightful, and we loved watching seals pop their heads out of the water. The marsh behind the home is gorgeous and full of birds. Beach roses scent the air. The sunset is breathtaking and the screened porch is the perfect place to enjoy every minute of it. Wells is a quiet, family-oriented town. Great rocky areas for tide pooling and close to excellent beaches. I couldn't recommend this home more.

We had a lovely family vacation at this waterfront home. We awoke to lovely views of the water and at night had beautiful sunsets in the opposite direction. The home is well equipped with plenty of plates, flatware, glasses, including those for wine. The only thing we saw as drawback was not having bathroom on third floor. We had the young people with good bladders sleep there. It was our CA. son-in-law's first visit to ME. So we did a lot of sightseeing. We walked the scenic Marginal Way in Ogunquit, went to Wells Beach in afternoon, and toured Kennebunkport. We ate at Mabel's Lobster Claw in Kennebunkport, purported to be one of the 1,000 places you must see before you die and well worth the trip. Lobster macaroni and cheese seemed to be the favorite dish. The lobster pound is within walking distance of the cottage so we took advantage of that. The weather was a little cool one day so that's when we went to Kennebunkport. A good time was had by all; it just wasn't long enough!
