Charming 2 bedroom cottage In a wooded Wells neighborhood very near the beach

Bedrooms 2
Space 850 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, sun porch with trundle bed, 1 large bathroom, sleeps 6. Free WiFi!

Air-Conditioned, Pet-friendly, charming, quiet cottage sleeps six with two bedrooms and a trundle bed on the spacious sun porch, which is also a great breakfast area and excellent for relaxing enjoying those summer nights with all the windows open.

Newly installed air-conditioning cools the entire house.

The great kitchen space, which includes a microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator, and 4 burner stove, also has a side door for easy access to vehicles and a large, beautiful backyard for those summer cookouts. Gas grill/BBQ and utensils available for your use.

Being on the ocean side of Rte 1 (and far away enough to enjoy this quiet neighborhood) you are less than a mile from great ocean views and 1.8 miles from Wells beach, accessible along a pleasant, scenic coastal road. The house provides a great central location for access to coastal drives, restaurants, sites, and great Wells antique and specialty shops as well as shopping for all your general needs. You are minutes away from Ogunquit and Kennebunk Port in this central location, and the best ice cream shop in the entire area is located on Eldridge road, right off of Batchelder lane.

My home is very pet friendly and there is an entertainment center with a flat screen TV, DVD, Cable, CD, and digital music capability. Movies, books, and games are also available.

Prime summer weeks are now available!

Thanks for the memories!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location of this property. Close walk to a lovely beach. Short drive to many points of interest. Quiet street. Perfect for families. Sunny front room with lots of windows and space made for a perfect gathering place to dine, play games, do crafts and puzzles. Great memories were made this vacation!

Adorable, clean, in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this charming, quiet, relaxing home. We'd love to stay here again. It's close to everything, yet just far enough off the main road that you don't even know there's traffic. Beaches are close enough to walk to if you're up to it. And it's easy to get hooked on the ice cream shop just up the street.

All in all a great place to stay!

cozy pet friendly cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is close to all your favorite places: Wells, Ogunquit, Drakes Island, York, Kennebunk Port, etc! We loved that we could bring our little rescue dog because she is not ready for a kennel stay. All beaches except Ogunquit allow dogs on leashes after hours and before prime hours in the a.m. AC worked great and we were able to do our wash in the cottage and hang on the line without going to a laundromat! We cooked a few meals on the grill outside but enjoyed the great seafood establishments in the area. At night we walked to the beach which was only about 15 minutes away. Quiet area at night and friendly neighbors added to our wonderful stay! Thank you Shawn.

Really cute and great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in Wells and it was wonderful. The house is close to the beach, shopping, mini golf/arcades, and the Wells Harbor. The Trolley stop was just up road so that you could go to Ogunquit or Kittery without having to drive yourself, and the Scoop Deck Ice Cream shop is right up the road (GREAT ice cream - amazing flavors). The Lobster Pound is also within walking distance and the food was great. The house was extremely clean and well kept. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen, while a bit small for our family, was well stocked. Central air had been added, which helped immensely as the weather was very warm. The neighborhood is very quiet and the neighbors are welcoming. We were able to ride our bikes nightly and we took the dog for long walks on the back streets to the beach. Overall a great time.

Home Away From Home

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely, stress- free week in this charming quiet neighborhood. The cottage had all that was promised and more. Clean, well maintained and had plenty of room for us and our dog. 15 minute walk to the beach. Close to restaurants and shopping. Owner was very receptive and answered any questions or needs promptly. Would recommend staying at "Marys Maine" for a relaxing vacation anytime.

Lovely cottage near shore, ice cream, restaurants

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a week of peace and joy when we and our children stayed in this quaint cottage in late July. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom good sized and the yard spacious. Most of all, we loved the screened in porch and ate every meal at the table there. The breeze was constantly refreshing as we shared meals and played games around the table. Fans were available but we found we didn't need them in coastal southern Maine. It was a welcome, cool and comfortable break from Texas July heat. When we left, we suggested a small microwave would be convenient for heating coffee or simple meals and Shaun was very responsive to our request. We highly recommend this cottage for a peaceful, active stay away from home. We loved it.
