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

Bedrooms 2
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!

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.

I agree with the reviewer who wrote "Buyer Beware"

  • 2 of 5

The owner is pleasant but the cottage was different than advertised. It says that it sleeps 6 - not. It says that there is a queen size bed - actually it's not a queen, it's a full. You think you'll have TV, no. But there is a TV that you can use if you rent DVD's, but you won't have access to television. The place was boiling hot, no A/C and we couldn't open windows because there were holes in screens and mosquitoes were coming in. Heat was coming through heater during the heat wave - it was cooler outside! Pretty little cottage but I wouldn't recommend it.

Owner's Response: My cottage does sleep 6. There is a full bed advertised as a full bed that sleeps 2. There are two twin beds that sleep one person each, and there is a trundle bed that sleeps two stepped or pulls out to full that sleeps two people side by side. That equals 6. There is no air conditioning and I do not advertise that I have air conditioning, so you do get what is advertised. As for TV, there is TV, but no cable, and I do not advertise that I have cable. I do provide free WiFi and a connection cord for USB to the TV; you can stream movies or watch Netflix or whatever you want through your laptop or other device. I often watch TV through the flat screen TV using my smartphone, but I try to limit my TV watching when I'm there vacationing near the beach in beautiful Maine. I can usually watch TV at my regular home. There is a Redbox close by where you can rent movies to use in the provided DVD player. I do provide fans and with the open windows there can be quite a nice breeze, but yes, it is hot in the summer. That is true. It is hot during the summer. As for holes in the screens, there are holes to let the air into the house as screens do. Other than that, I'm not sure what to say. The windows are not new, but they are in good condition. So, obviously, there is wear. I do provide three fans (two standing and one floor). That should cover it as far as a short response. I won't go on with the problems I experienced with this renter, but the list is quite long. I bent over backwards and I'm dismayed to see that my good nature and attention to customer service ended with this review.

Quiet, pleasant stay...

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay at this cottage. Not far from the beach. Located in a quiet setting, the cottage provided me with what I was looking for. Interior clean and cozy; amenities provided were exactly as advertised; owner easy to deal with and pleasant; nice relaxing experience. I look forward to my next stay! Thanks!
