|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
This charming, quiet cottage sleeps six with two bedrooms and a trundle bed on the spacious sun porch, which is also a great breakfast area and excellent for relaxing enjoying those summer nights with all the windows open.
The great kitchen space also has a side door for easy access to vehicles and a large, beautiful backyard for those summer cookouts. Gas grill/BBQ available for your use.
Being on the ocean side of Rte 1 (and far away enough to enjoy this quiet neighborhood) you are less than a mile from great ocean views and 1.8 miles from Wells beach, accessible along a pleasant coastal road. The house provides a great central location for access to coastal drives, restaurants, sites, and great Wells antique and specialty shops as well as shopping for all your general needs. You are minutes away from Ogunquit and Kennebunk Port in this central location, and the best ice cream shop in the entire area is located on Eldridge road, right off of Batchelder lane.
My home is very pet friendly and there is an entertainment center with a flat screen TV, DVD, Cable, CD, and digital music capability.
Prime summer weeks are now available!
We enjoyed a week of peace and joy when we and our children stayed in this quaint cottage in late July. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom good sized and the yard spacious. Most of all, we loved the screened in porch and ate every meal at the table there. The breeze was constantly refreshing as we shared meals and played games around the table. Fans were available but we found we didn't need them in coastal southern Maine. It was a welcome, cool and comfortable break from Texas July heat. When we left, we suggested a small microwave would be convenient for heating coffee or simple meals and Shaun was very responsive to our request. We highly recommend this cottage for a peaceful, active stay away from home. We loved it.
The owner is pleasant but the cottage was different than advertised. It says that it sleeps 6 - not. It says that there is a queen size bed - actually it's not a queen, it's a full. You think you'll have TV, no. But there is a TV that you can use if you rent DVD's, but you won't have access to television. The place was boiling hot, no A/C and we couldn't open windows because there were holes in screens and mosquitoes were coming in. Heat was coming through heater during the heat wave - it was cooler outside! Pretty little cottage but I wouldn't recommend it.
I enjoyed my stay at this cottage. Not far from the beach. Located in a quiet setting, the cottage provided me with what I was looking for. Interior clean and cozy; amenities provided were exactly as advertised; owner easy to deal with and pleasant; nice relaxing experience. I look forward to my next stay! Thanks!
We had a great time staying in this charming cozy cottage.The amenities were more than enough for us.The place was clean,nice back yard. It was nice sitting on the front porch at night.Very convenient being close to rt 1 with great stores and restaurants! The beach was closer than we thought and was beautiful..We were very happy with our stay,and would rent again. L & C Jones
My husband and I stayed at this cottage this past summer. The cottage was adequate for our needs. It is centrally located in a quiet neighborhood, yet close to Route 1 and about a mile from the ocean. We did find some issues with the property, such as there was no microwave, no toaster, no air conditioning, a television - but no cable. When we arrived on Saturday, the lawn looked like it hadn't been mowed for a few weeks and the house had a stale, musty odor. We also encountered some problems with the property owner, both before and during our stay. He never sent receipts for the deposit or the remaining balance, and since his only accepted method of payment was by bank check, we didn't know whether or not he had received our checks. He also did not provide us with a signed copy of the rental agreement. We had to continuously contact him by email or phone to get any information from him. When we spoke with him, his attitude was rude and condescending.
We called him when we arrived to complain about the condition of the lawn and to ask what was wrong with the TV. That was when he told us that there was no cable service, but there was a DVD player and we could rent movies at Redbox. He spoke rudely at this time also.
After our stay, we had to contact him once again to request that our security deposit be returned to us, and at that time he accused us of causing damage to the cottage, and threatened to withhold some of the deposit. When we advised him that we had not caused the damage, and that, in fact, we had left the cottage in better condition than it was when we arrived and had pictures to prove it, he returned the full security deposit to us.
We would not rent this property again, nor would we recommend it to a friend or relative as we would not want anyone to be subjected to the owner's poor customer service skills.
We did make the most of our week in Wells, and enjoyed the beach and the many area attractions. We will definitely return to the area, but will find another place to stay.
Cute little cottage on quiet street, loved sitting out on the porch. Very close to beaches, restaurants and of course the famous Ice Cream, the Scoop Deck. Was allowed to bring my dog and she loved going to the beach at night because dogs are allowed on Wells beaches after 6pm.
