Wells cottage description

This cottage offers guests a combination of quiet and convenience, located just under one mile from one of Southern Maine's most quiet beaches. Drakes Island Beach itself has no commercial establishments on it, yet within a few miles, you can enjoy shopping, cinemas, fine dining, and the quaint fishing villages of Ogunquit and Kennebunkport.

The property borders the beautiful Rachel Carson and Laudholm Farm wildlife preserves. You will enjoy the peaceful surroundings of your cottage. The expansive lawn stretches down to the salt marsh. Enjoy the large, heated, swimming pool, picnic tables, and grills, or a leisurely walk around the grounds.

The cottage is comfortable, clean, and well supplied. Layout includes two bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, living room, and screened-in porch.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1979

                      About the owner: I bought this property from my parents in 1979. I enjoy operating a small family business. Some of our returning quests are in the 4th generation of the family, since coming to stay with us.

                      Why the Owner Chose Wells:
                      It is 'Off the beaten path'. It has beautiful, uncrowded, peaceful green areas and yet is just up the street from the ocean.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      We are small and quiet. We have decided to retain our green space and not over develop the property.
