About Lynn Fichtel

My husband and I have loved Maine since we vacationed there as children with our respective families. I am an elementary school administrator and Bill is a builder. Our daughter is married and lives in CT with her husband, toddler, and black lab. Our son lives in CO with his wife and a rabbit named George. We all love Maine!

Lynn Fichtel purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Lynn Fichtel chose Southern Coast of Maine

Bill and I lived in Maine when we were first married. We moved home to CT before our second child was born, but were determined to return at some point in our lives. This cottage presented a perfect opportunity for us to spend some quality time in ME without having a lot of property maintenance. It is only a 3 1/2 hour drive from our home, making weekend trips feasible for us. We fell in love with the thoughtful design of this unit. It is small, but very comfortable and has every update available. I can have a flower garden which is important to me.

What makes this cottage unique

The location offers a multitude of recreational opportunities. My husband is an avid fisherman. He is up before dawn each morning heading to one of the many beaches for surf casting. He has caught some large stripers in the area. River and lake fishing are also available. Many harbors offer deep sea fishing or boat rentals.

I love sitting at the beach with a good book, taking walks looking for shells, and browsing in cute shops. I will never exhaust the many places I can explore in the Wells area.

Our whole family enjoys kayaking In the ocean, rivers, and lakes of the surrounding area. The kids are bikers who find sea coast rides very enjoyable. The rest of my family loves to golf, and this too is readily available in this area. We all love to cook seafood dinners at the cottage and then take a dip in one of the refreshing pools or relax in the hot tub. Area restaurants are well known for quality menus and extraordinary views of the sea. The summer theater groups provide an array of plays over the summer. Sometimes well known stars participate in summer stock. The area towns rely on summer visitors so they offer local art fairs, church suppers, and lectures through the season.

An hour drive north provides access to the shops and up and coming restaurants in Portland, or a trip to the outlets and LLBean in Freeport. In the fall this trip is gorgeous as the leaves turn colors.

We can go out or just stay in the Beach Dreams complex depending on our moods. We find everything near at hand and always a lot of fun for all ages. We have been blessed with the addition of a baby granddaughter to our family this winter. We look forward to introducing her to the Wells area in the summer! We have always thought Beach Dreams would be a great place to vacation with young children. Our family will soon find out it that is true!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Beach Dreams cottage 263! The location is perfect: both of Beach Dreams in general and this cottage in particular. It's an easy walk to the pool and clubhouse while also having the privacy of a small "village." We will return every year to enjoy the amenities of Beach Dreams as well as discover all of the wonders of Southern Maine. We love walking to Moody Beach each morning, biking to Wells Beach, relaxing at the pool, and driving to Kittery to outlet shop if there happens to be a cloudy day. Cottage 263 is clean, welcoming and comfortable. We love having a glass of wine on the front porch or cooking dinner in the well equipt kitchen. Can't wait to come back in 2013!
