Escape to Your Beautiful Wells Beach House

If you are ready to enjoy a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life and are looking for an idyllic destination on the beautiful coast of Maine, Wells is the perfect spot to consider. With its incredible recreational opportunities paired with its scenic beauty, you cannot help but have a fabulous time when you vacation in Wells. You could choose to stay in a small hotel room in Wells, but a better idea is to treat yourself to a spacious Wells vacation home. Your vacation home may have amenities that include a thoughtfully-appointed kitchen, spacious bedrooms, large living areas, patios or balconies overlooking the beach and other amenities.

Shopping

Shopping is one of the most popular pastimes for those who visit the southern coast of Maine, and there is good reason for this. Across the coast, you will find many great shopping spots where you will love searching for gifts for yourself and loved ones. For example, in Wells, you can find gifts in the beautiful Lighthouse Depot retail center. In South Portland, you can shop at 135 stores in the Maine Mall. There are also 120 shops at the Kittery Outlets in Ogunquit and 158 stores at Old Port in Portland. Plus, many of the small towns have mom-and-pop shops that line the main city streets that add to your shopping fun.

Golfing

The weather is idyllic for spending a day on the golf course many months of the year, and this means that you will want to bring your golf clubs along with you when you head out for your vacation in Kennebunkport and the Wells area. Serious golfers will delight in golfing at the Old Marsh Golf Course, the Cape Arundel Golf Course, the Webhannet Golf Club, the Dutch Elm Golf Course, the Cape Neddick Course, The Ledges, the Sanford Golf Course and Merriland Farms Golf Course. If you only dabble in golf and are looking for a short, family experience, mini-golf may be the answer. Wells is home to the Wells Branch Mini-Golf Course and the Wonder Mountain Golf Course.

Outdoor Recreation

Golfing is not the only form of outdoor recreation in the area, and you will be thrilled with all of the other possibilities in Wells. The Moody Beach swim area is ideal for those hot summer days, and you can also take schooner tours, lobster tours, whale watching tours or lighthouse tours on boats across the coast. In addition, biking, kayaking, canoeing and fishing are also common outdoor activities that visitors will love on a getaway to beautiful Wells.

Weather

Many who travel to the area will do so in the spring, summer or fall months, and this is because the winter season can be extremely snowy and frigid. In fact, the average low during the winter may be in the teens or single digits. However, the fall and spring months are undeniably gorgeous as the winter transitions into summer and then back to winter. Summers can be warm and humid, and many days, the high temperature during the summer season is in the 80s or 90s. Because of the location along the coast and in the northeastern region of the United States, this area of Maine receives ample rain from the coast and ample snowfall from nor'easters.

How to Get There

Wells may not be located close to a major metropolitan area, but it is relatively easy to reach nonetheless. Many who drive or fly into the area will travel to Portland, Maine. If you fly, you can rent a car to travel the rest of the way to Wells. From Portland, you will take Interstate 95 or Highway 1 southward, and these roads take you directly into Wells.

The view is exceptionnal, the appartment is very confortable, wonderfully clean with everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. We cooked a bit, using the BBQ's outside, but we mostly ate in town. Ogunquit has great restaurants and they are easily accessible as the place is well situated. Kathy was very easy to deal with, always responding quickly to my emails. We will definetely go back, and it can't be soon enough!

The very large kitchen/dining room with an attached deck just next to it made it so as the cook for the weekend I could still be involved in all the fun. Cooking for a large group is great in that space! We loved the picnic table and fire pit. The house is in great shape, and felt very much like home! Thanks for making it available to us!

The place was clean, and well stocked for cooking, if you desired to save a bit on meals. It was a short walk to anyplace....shops, restaurants, beach, and Marginal Way. I would highly recommend it. But if you are over 6' tall, you would hit your head on the ceiling, and not fit into the shower. But for us shorter people, it was great!
