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 town has so much to offer: beaches, shopping, restaurants, live theatre, etc. We loved the house – it’s located in a residential area that feels very safe, and it’s an easy walk to town. (Although within walking distance, we drove to the beach each day as we had a lot of beach gear to carry.) The home has a large back deck that gets plenty of sunshine, and also a front porch that offers shade and a nice breeze on hot days. The home was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and we appreciated having air conditioners both upstairs and down. It was also very nice to have two bathrooms – both with showers. The dishwasher and washer/dryer were an added bonus (not always available in rental properties) as well as two TVs equipped with cable. Andrea, the owner, was extremely responsive and pleasant, and we would not hesitate to rent this property again.

However, here are a few comments/suggestions that need consideration: Monday to Monday rental is not practical when some family members come from the Midwest. We hope you consider going back to the Sunday to Sunday schedule. The air conditioning units needed cleaning. The mattress in the sleep sofa in first level bedroom was uncomfortable. Some of the springs have given. The carpet at the top of the stairs between 1st and 2nd level needs to be secured. Though not yet crucial, someone could trip on It if not nailed down or stapled. There were a few sheets missing on 2 beds, no dish towels in the kitchen, which were readily supplied by housekeeping upon request. Service was excellent, house was spotless, with the exception of the air conditioners. It would be nice to have a fan for the porch dining area. There appears to be a humidity problem in the first level bedroom. Some windows need washing in the house. I do hope that these comments are helpful in your attempt to maintain the high quality to which you pride yourselves. We do hope to return in the future.

The kitchen and the bathrooms are modern and attractive. The AC units work well. The building is an old Victorian hotel perched on a hill a short walk from the village center and the Marginal Way. Almost every morning, we walked down to one of the tidal beaches to see the sun rise- spectacular! We enjoyed the pool and the grounds. Kathy was very nice to deal with and always responded to emails quickly. It was very difficult to leave this beautiful place!
