Our First Stay -- We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a vary pleasant stay the last week of May this year! We've visited Wells, Maine at least once a year for many years now, but this was our first time renting a Cottage. This cottage was clean and well equipped which made us feel at home immediately; comfortable beds and living room furniture, cable TV, very good internet reception, nice kitchen with everything in it. The complex is very well maintained and the people were friendly and helpful. Also contributing to the enjoyable stay is that the owner was very thorough and caring about making sure we were informed as to the check-in/out procedures and property use. I'd say we enjoyed our Maine vacation more this time, than any previous stays. We would definitely stay here again.

I can't say enough good things about this place!

  • 5 of 5

I really can't say enough good things about this place. I stayed here for 3 weeks last fall and 2 weeks again this summer. I would live here year round if I could. The cottage is beautiful, clean, well maintained, and has everything you need including a fully stocked kitchen, cable, wireless internet, and air conditioning. It's in the back of the complex, very quiet. The clubhouse, gym, pool, and hot tub are pristine. Less than 1 mile from Wells Beach. Easy drive to great restaurants, grocery store, and the greatest donut shop ever (Congdon's Doughnuts - try the maple frosted, cream filled)And the owner is absolutely fantastic. Friendly, approachable, and really cares about providing you with everything you need to have the best time. Thanks for everything John!!!!

Second year in a row. Awesome...

  • 5 of 5

John has been a great host. The cottage is exactly as pictured and has all the furnishings of home. John also put in a WIFI in 181 which was great to look up spots on the fly. The tennis court and pool are both in walking distance. Eateries are within a few minutes drive. Facilities are clean. Last year we rented both.. Very quiet during the day and night. Another great stay and security deposit returned promptly. Thanks again John, your guests Deb and Spencer

Excellent séjour !

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions 4 adultes et nous avons passé une semaine au cottage. Nous avons apprécié le site où est situé le cottage et le cottage lui-même. La cuisine est pratique, car nous n'avons pas à aller au restaurant tout le temps. Avec l'air climatisé, la télévision et le réseau internet sans fil, on se sent comme chez soi !

Bref, un endroit propre, sécuritaire et près de tout !

Seul petit point qui pourrait être négatif pour certains... on doit prendre l'auto pour aller à la plage.

Bon séjour !!

Owner's Response: Marilyn, merci pour vos commentaires, j'ai vraiment aimé ce que vous avez dit et je tiens à ajouter que, au lieu de conduire l'une miles et demi directement à la plage, vous pouvez garer votre voiture dans le centre de transport Wells et prendre le chariot. Merci de prendre le temps d'écrire votre recomendation et je me réjouis de votre prochaine visite. John Cempellin

Really nice family vacation

  • 5 of 5

I just recommended this cottage to a friend and I am recommending it to you.

My partner, my sister and I wanted to spend a really nice vacation, we went to see one of the most beautiful places in Maine. We found this beautiful and charming cottage just one mile to the ocean.

The kitchen has everything to cook with. The bedrooms have good size and are comfortable. The cottage is nicely furnished with all that you need and more, a lot of light, relaxing and well decorated.

The owner was so nice with us, the cottages are located in a quiet wooded area of the complex, making it peaceful and relaxing. There are plenty of amenities so we had a lot to do and have fun, pools, hot tub, tennis court, clubhouse, fully equipped gym and arcade.

We went in July and went again in October to see the Autumn Foliage. It was spectacular and we had another really nice time.
