About the property

3 Bedroom two bath home across from the sandy beach

Our newly renovated beach house is the perfect place to spend your family vacation. We have spent the last year renovating and getting it ready for you! Two Brand new bedrooms and a new full bath with a giant family room for everyone to gather. The kitchen seats 6+ and the deck offers extended dining. The newly renovated kitchen has stainless appliances and is stocked with everything you need. Tons of parking and a huge lawn for outdoor games. The view of the sunsets from the deck is spectacular.

About Erin Beardsley

My husband and I have been vacationing in Wells with our families since we were kids. We were lucky enough to have a compatible vacation destination as a married couple. For the past 13 years we have been managing and renting beach property. We have loved sharing our places with our four sons, our extended family and our tenants. It is our favorite beach in the world!

Erin Beardsley purchased this house in 2015

Why Erin Beardsley chose Southern Coast of Maine

When we were lucky enough to find this home for sale my husband jumped at the opportunity. He loves the gorgeous sunsets from the back deck and the unobstructed river and marsh views. We are just a few doors down from the public way to the beach and to all the shops and activities at the top of the street.

What makes this house unique

The spacious parking and enormous yard are a unique feature on Atlantic Ave. You will feel the serenity and privacy and also enjoy as much activity as you desire.

Clean and conveniently located

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We stayed at the Atlantic Avenue cottage in Wells, Maine. We were impressed with the quality of the amenities , the cleanliness, the look and lay out of the cottage. We were a family of 8 and we very much enjoyed staying this close to the beach. We contacted the owner by phone prior to making our reservation and the whole process was informative, easy and clear. The Beardley's have clear rules and guidelines for accessing/exiting the cottage. We do recommend this house/cottage for groups wanting to be near the beach. A beach retreat just like you imagine, a very good choice!

Great location and beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Hi Erin,

Sorry for the delay in getting this back to you. You cottage was beautiful and fit all of us perfectly. We all spent alot of time there during our stay. After dinner we would all go back and play cards where as other places we have rented we would basically just sleep and shower. Very comfortable place to stay and convenient to the beach. Thank you for renting your cottage to us.

Great house by the ocean

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We rented this house for a girls getaway weekend, and this house was perfect! There was plenty of room for everyone to have some privacy, and also large gathering spaces that accommodated us getting together. It is also a quick walk to the beach, and you have great views of the marsh (and a little ocean view in some rooms).

Wonderful family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property during the summer of 2015 and was thrilled with the absolute beauty of this home both inside and out. Inside, the rooms were spacious, extremely clean and beautifully decorated. Outside we had plenty of parking, a great backyard and most importantly, we were steps away from the beach. The views every day were stunning from the marsh to the birds from the back deck. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice home away from home.

Beautiful views, great location, charming

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved this cottage. Located across street from public access way to beach, the back deck and its views are beautiful. The house is spacious very clean and had a lot of character. You can tell they (owners) put a lot of care and detail into this place. My two girls and I are already looking forward to going back next year
