                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: This is our first year owning a summer cottage in Maine and we are thrilled. We live outside of Boston and have found Maine to be the perfect vacation spot. Only a short drive to relax on the beach yet feels thousands of miles away from home.

                          Why the Owner Chose Wells:
                          I grew up going to Drakes Island for the summer months and am so happy that my children will do the same. This property is directly on a very special beach with all the amenities you need to be comfortable.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Drakes Island is located between many tourist towns such as Kennebunkport, York and Ogunquit. You can enjoy all the restaurants, shopping and activities that these towns have to offer and then escape the crowds to Drakes Island. There are quaint antique shops lining the streets of Maine as well as restaurants, the famous Maine Diner is a mile down the road. The Kittery Outlets are 3 exits away. Drakes Island has one of the most perfect beaches for all ages. There are dozens of rocks clusters with star fish and crabs for kids to explore as well as hard, wet sand for castle-building and playing games.
