Clean, Comfortble and great owner

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed here for two years and counting, The house is always very clean and well kept. It is in a nice quiet neighborhood away from the busy route 1, It has everything you could possible need to have a nice relaxed vacation, the washer and dryer is a huge plus seeing how you can pack a lot lighter. The owner Betsy is extremely accommodating if there is any issue at all with a phone call text or email to Betsy and it will be taking care of asap. All of the beaches and stores and dinning are all in a short drive away. Our kids absolutely love the place and feel right at home when we leave they are asking right away when are we coming back. Would recommend this to anybody looking for a nice relaxing vacation in Maine.

Monica and family

This cottage has accommodations that are superb! It's in a quiet neighborhood and the property is shaded by trees that provide relief from the hot sun, so we were able to sit outside and enjoy the outdoors. Inside, every room has many windows, and it was bright and cheerful. The sun porch was a bonus room, in our opinion. The cottage is super clean and neat, and every amenity that we could possible need was provided....even the linens, towels, basic condiments in the kitchen, etc. Each bedroom had ample room for dressers as well as large closets. The kitchen was fully equipped, right down to the dishwasher! We found that it was very close to the beaches, shopping, and restaurants. Betsy, the owner, was very kind and maintained close communication throughout the rental process. When we finally arrived, we felt that if anything was questionable, she would have no problem addressing the problem immediately. Of course, everything was great - no surprises - it was all as it was described to be on the VRBO site. My family and I would highly recommend this cottage to others.

Beautiful, Clean and Close to Everything!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation renting this cottage. It is super clean and comfortable. We felt at home as soon as we pulled in the drive way. The location is perfect as it is close to many popular Wells, ME attractions. The cottage is located on a very nice and quiet street. We were able to ride our bikes to the beach and the Scoop Deck for ice cream. We loved renting this cottage and recommend it to others!

Super clean, spacious, close to everything

  • 5 of 5

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.

Conveniently located between Ogunquit and Kennebunkport. Wells offers a nice public beach area and has a cinema, grocery shopping and antique shops within the town. Closeby Ogunquit has a theatre, downtown shops and restaurants, while York offers another beach area with its own flavor.
