If you don't have to be right on the beach, and you desire to be in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood, yet very close to everything, this property is the perfect choice. Betsy is a wonderful host and provided excellent communication! Her home is spotless, and you will be hard pressed to not find everything you need. Even the twin bed was comfortable for an adult. I lost count of how many windows are in this home, letting in sunlight and fresh air! The house has a unique set-up that provides three, separate living rooms (including the closed-in porch) allowing both children and adults to have ample space of their own, if desired. Probably the best ice cream in Wells is at Scoopdeck's right up the street. Having grown up in Southern Maine, it was nice to discover a new beautiful beach, Drake's Island Beach, about a 5 minute drive from the house. We brought bikes, easily peddling to Wells beach and all around the area. We enjoyed exploring many of the antique shops and art galleries close by. To us, summer in Maine is not complete without a night at the Saco Drive-In, the second oldest in the US (celebrating their 75th year). Route 1 can be very congested with summer traffic, crawling along a good deal of the time. It was quite nice that the house is located not far from I-95 Exit 19 to Route 1 via Chapel Rd, making further exploration of other areas of Maine an easy commute.
