    Welcome to Wells

    It’s no surprise to locals that Wells is known as “The Friendliest Town in Maine”—this seaside resort has been in the hospitality game for decades and has mastered the art of the warm welcome. Stretched along 7 miles of coastline, with 4 miles of golden beaches tailor-made for families, water-sports enthusiasts, and sunbathers, Wells’ location has gifted it with year-round popularity. The inviting waters aren’t the only thing that draw visitors to Wells vacation rentals, though. From apple-picking on local farms to hikes through the Wells Reserve, the town’s land-based activities are another surefire recipe for holiday bliss.

    Wells—the antique capital of the world

    History’s all around in Wells, the 3rd oldest town in the state of Maine. Wells vacation rentals make the perfect base for antiquarians hoping to browse through the 25 antique stores in the town’s picturesque center. A walk around these establishments will unearth a treasure trove of goods, so bargain hunters will be in their element. Artwork and sculptures from local masters share space with exquisite colonial furniture, while keen readers can pick up rare volumes of classic favorites. After a day of vintage retail therapy, visitors are sure to understand why Wells is considered one of the antique capitals of the world.

    Preserving Wells’ wonders

    A National Estuarine Research Reserve that’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Wells Reserve at Laudholm offers a fascinating family day out for all ages. Trails are open daily and lead you through the stunning wilderness of this region, past rivers, through forests, and around saltwater marshes. The Maine Coastal Ecology Center is housed within the reserve and gives an extensive insight into the facility’s pioneering research on estuarine environments. Hours of operation for the visitor’s center are seasonal, so check online before you go.

    Wells weather

    Wells vacation rentals are at their most popular in the summer months, when temperatures peak in the 80s. Refreshing breezes off the Atlantic Ocean keep things comfortable during this balmy season, while cooler nights make after-dinner strolls particularly pleasant. The fall is one of the most enticing times to visit the area. Early- to mid-fall temperatures average in the high 60s and low 70s, so hiking, biking, and other outdoor activities are still on the itinerary, while the bursting autumnal hues offer breathtaking views to be enjoyed from the patio of your vacation rental in Wells.

    What’s rare is wonderful in Wells

    Lying along 50 miles of Maine coastline, the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge aims to protect valuable saltwater marshes and the migratory birds that inhabit them. Within the grounds, you’ll see a variety of rare and state-endangered specimens, such as cottontail rabbits, saltmarsh sparrows, and the piping plover. The state’s enviable arboreal diversity is also on display, with dogwood, speckled alder, and meadowsweet dotting the reserve. A number of trails lead visitors past creeks, rivers, and the marshes themselves, with more native wildlife visible en route.
