About Diane Carrier

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

Why Diane Carrier chose Wells

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!

What makes this house unique

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.

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful Wells Beach, oceanfront home last week. The first thing that stood out was the house was actually even more beautiful than the pictures represented. The home was well equipped, fresh, clean, inviting with beautiful views of the marsh and the oceanfront. The porches are great places to read, have coffee, relax with a beer or glass of wine. There are two parking spots in front of the house and one spot in the driveway. We brought bikes and a kayak. We rode the bikes, into town, to the beach, to church, to the grocery store. It was very convenient and fun! We launched the kayaks from the Wells public boat launch (~1 mile) which had parking and a public bathroom. We saw lots of birds and paddles all the way to the back of the Wells house (~2 hrs, high tide round trip). At the house we grilled, played games, took lots of photographs. During our stay, the super moon was flicking off the water. The sunrises and sunsets were spectacular. We went to the beach across the street, Moody Beach, Old Orchard and Ogunquit Beaches. Our family entered the Moody Beach sand castle contest and one a 1st place trophy and blue ribbons! Moody Beach is technically private (sections near the houses) so it can get crowded. Ogunquit beach (~1 mile) has a public bathroom and parking was my favorite beach. We also ate dinner and breakfast at various local town restaurants. We ate dinner at Mabels in Kennebunkport, which was fantastic (make reservations). The Bush compound is right down the road; it's a beautiful area. We went to Portland, shopped and went on a lobster boat (Lucky Catch), make reservations. Very fun and educational. You can buy the lobsters off the boat for $5-$10 and we took them back to the house and cooked them (the house has a lobster pot). The layout of the house is fantastic, the property was clean, well-maintained, fresh and welcoming. Diane, the owner answered every email and question quickly and clearly. I would recommend this property to a friend or relative. Thanks for a great time!

Stunning Ocean and Marsh Views

  • 5 of 5
This is our 2nd year staying in this lovely home. If you enjoy views this home has them from every room. You can wake up to the sunrise over the ocean and watch the sunsets over the marsh in the evening. Our family loves it here because there is plenty of space for everyone. The kids love the 3rd floor and the adults love to sit out on the porches. This year it rained a bit and we were all so content to stay inside because of the amazing views. If I could cook dinner every night with views like this I would probably cook more often. We also love being so close to the tide pools at crescent beach.
The home is exceptionally clean and well kept. The kitchen is fully stocked and the owners are easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for stunning ocean views in Wells Beach area.

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!
