Selkie 166 BEACH DREAMS~beautiful cottage, great location!
average rating of 5.0 based on 6 reviews

Perfect. Our favorite getaway.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th visit to this cottage and we LOVE IT. If we could rent this unit every June, we would. Perfect for a family vacation. May not be ideal for more than 4 adults, but with the pullout sofa, it could work.

Owners have maintained this unit well. Upgraded Wifi, HD cable, and a DVD player for relaxing in the evenings. Clean, well maintained with plenty of on-site amenities. Washer/Dryer and fully equipped kitchen make eating in and cleaning up very convenient. A very nice tennis court is right in front of your unit with recently added pickleball nets for a variety of activities. Main clubhouse has workout center, hot tub/spa, and large pool area with plenty of chairs to soak up the sun. Very nice.

The main attraction for this particular unit is the "sun porch," our favorite feature of this unit. This is one of the only units that has the porch facing AWAY from the other units for better privacy. You are looking out at beautiful trees and landscaping instead of your neighbors window. A HUGE PLUS as we spent a lot of our time lounging on the porch in the cool breeze eating our meals or just reading and working from your laptop.

Great location between the center of Wells and Ogunquit. 45 minutes from Portland and 1 1/2 hours from Manchester. Easy to get to and easy to get to other destinations. Boston is only 1 1/2 hours away and makes for an easy day trip.

We absolutely love this place and hope that we can continue to enjoy trips to Beach Dreams in the future.

What a treat!

  • 5 of 5

My two boys and me arrived early afternoon and found the registration process as simple as could be. The cottage is immaculate, well stocked and exceeded our expectations in every way. The grounds are well kept, the facilities first class and the good folks holidaying and living there are as friendly as your neighbors back home. Susan Carlow (owner) was extremely helpful and an integral part of our decision making for this holiday and as Arnold once said "wee'lll bee baack"

Thank you for the warm welcome....Fred Fizet

Loved this comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, comfortable beach cottage with every amenity we could want. It was superbly maintained, clean, and charmingly decorated. The owner, Susan, saw to every detail to ensure our satisfaction, and she is very easy to work with . Following some of her suggestions, we enjoyed local shops, restaurants, and the playhouse... but we loved being able to come home to the peace of the cottage. We would absolutely recommend to friends, and hope to return next year. Thank you, Susan!

Wonderfull stay at the 166 Selkie Beach Dreams

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is located in the very quiet Beach Dreams cottage resort. It about 3km away from Ogunquit downtown. In particular the 166 Selkie, is located one km away from the road 1, at the far end of the resort, in front of the tennis court, and very near the 2nd pool. The cottage is not big but very functional and can well accomodate a family of 4 plus 2 additional person. It is all furnished properly, very clean and well decorated and even included tennis raquet and some beach toys for the kids. We did not have to bring anything other than our own personal clothing. We also appreciated the veranda which has a view on a small wood and was always cool during the day. We also appreciated the large pool of the resort and in the afternoon.

The resort is well maintained, very clean and the people we met were wonderful.

The beach dream resort is located near the famous The Steak House which we tried and really enjoy a good meal, the one hour wait was well worthed. Just at the exit of the resort, there is a really nice restaurant for breakfast and snack. Nearby, there is also many attractions for families.

To go to the beach we went once at Ogunquit beach with our bicycles and then we took our car to the Wells beach which is approximately 3 km from the cottage - within 5 km there are 2 other really nice beaches.

The owner Susan was very pleasant, honest, alwasy replied rapidly. She properly described the cottage and provided goog hints to have a good stay in the area.

In conclusion, our family of 4 from Quebec, really enjoyed the week in the area and our stay at the 166 Selkie.

We recommend this cottage to our friends and family.

Peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is the one I recommend when our units are full. It is in a quiet, low traffic area in the back of Beach Dreams, but near the tennis court and smaller pool. New owners have made many upgrades ... adding a washer/dryer and beautiful new living room furniture. The porch is delightful ... a wonderful spot for dining, games, conversation, or reading.

Owner's Response: Thank you! The 3-season porch is one of my favorite rooms as well. What's better than picking up a lobster dinner to-go at Fisherman's Catch, then sitting and enjoying a glass of wine or some card or board games with family?!

My family and I spent columbus day weekend at this cottage and had a great time! The cottage was beautiful and had everything we needed right there. The owners were very accommodating. In fact, the owner helped us to plan and sign up for activities that were going on within beach dreams that weekend. The cottage also had a fireplace which was lovely this time of year. We will definitely be back next year!
