Super duper :)
Super duper :)
We truly had a wonderful time at Dawn's, we felt like home straight away. The house is very comfortable, fully equiped and very eady to get around. The garden is huge, plenty of space for kids to run about without worrying about cars as the lane is far enough from the main road. There is a very comfortable dining area outside, the place is really ideal for a family & friends vacation. The location is great too, close to the grocery shop, outlets, mini-golf, ice cream place and restaurants. It's not located to a walking distance from the beach though, but you can easily get to it via car within 5 minutes and there are 2 near by parking lots. I would definitely recommend staying at Dawn's, it really is a perfect holiday home.

Home by the beach
Home by the beach
We had a wonderful family filled vacation at this great home for less money!! We wanted to stay by the beach but this great home(that feels like home) was a quarter of a mile from the beach for way less than beachfront money. Lots of room for the whole family to come stay at once. Cute rooms with nice beds to sleep and everything you need to live, all the while only packing your clothes. Shopping, beach and a huge yard to BBQ or picnic in. This was a fantastic choice!!!!

Year Purchased: 1986
About the owner: This is the fantastic family that enjoyed the fun and warmth of this terrific home for the last 25 years. This home was lovingly rebuilt from the foundation up during the WWII by the family of the owner we bought it from while he was serving in the war and his bride and infant son awaited his return. They took amazing care of this home and their loving touches are everywhere. For instance the entire kitchen and dining room is knotty pine. We moved into this home with 3 small children, brought another into the fold, and welcomed several 'strays' over the years. Other children that were relatives of friends of our children that needed a home. It was a little cramped sometimes, but no one ever complained and many a memorable 'movie night' was enjoyed even from the view from the floor propped up against the couches which were crowded. Before renting this home we repaired any unfit thing and upgraded a few things that probably should have been done before. 4 brand new beds is just one example of the choices we made to ensure that your stay would be the first of many. There's parking enough for your extended to family be here for any sort of party you like. We've hosted 2 weddings and too many parties to count and never had to park a car on a neighbor's property. There's over 2 acres here including driveway, parking lot, buildings, gardens and trees, and lawn, lawn, lawn.
Why the Owner Chose Wells:
When I met the man of my dreams he was moving to Wells Maine where his mother had owned a home right on the beach for several years. When he knew it was time for a change it seemed like a great place to make a new beginning. Since his entire family had spent many a summer in Wells, but never lived here year round he had no idea what a wonderful place Wells Maine is to live and raise children It's easy to get to know people around here because everyone is to friendly and welcoming. The entire school system holds only about 1,500 children! This community is so safe - we've never locked the cars in our yard, and when we decided to rent we had to get new door handles because we didn't have a key - we've never locked the door to our house for as long as we've lived here! That's safe and trustworthy right?
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is 'that' house where you feel comfortable walking in. Since we always had an open door policy, ours was the house where some beverage or other was always readily available for 1 or 50 people. You can comfortably have up to 30 people in the ground floor rooms of Kitchen, Dining Room, and Living Room. This is definitely the house that's appropriate for adult siblings to rent together now that you all have kids of your own. Lots of outdoor space to play, there's even a tree swing or two.
