About Cindy and Ted Palmer

Cindy and Ted Palmer purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Cindy and Ted Palmer chose Summer Village
Our family loves Summer Village, and use it more and more, but we continue to offer our cottage for rental most weeks. Every year we are so pleased to have it fully rented, and many people return year after year. People request to stay in our cottage as it is a bit off the main road circumventing the resort, yet close to the activities and amenities. The bunk beds are a great convenience.
What makes this Cottage unique
We emphasize that Summer Village is a family friendly destination with many activities within the resort. Yet, the location is also close to the rich Maine Coastal activities, shopping, restaurants, and sites and a very short drive to the fabulous beaches in Wells and Ogunquit.

Perfect amount of room for a family of 5.
This was our first time staying in Summer Village. My family of 5 ( 2 adults, 3 kids ages 11, and 6 year old twins ) absolutely loved this cottage! It was very clean and decorated in nice warm colors. We did not expect them to have it stocked with a lot of supplies, (i.e. dish soap, hand soap laundry det. toilet paper....) it was very nice to find. Cindy was always very prompt in getting back to me with any questions. We had a little trouble with the washer, but she sent someone over that day and it all worked out. Plenty of glasses and dishes, and especially some plastic cups if you have younger kids. The WiFi was great to have also. The pools where the kids favorite! We found that the family pool at the front of the resort was the least crowded.
....We did have a couple little snags that have nothing to do with the cottage itself. The " Game Room " at the barn which was somewhere we retreated to one rainy day, we found most of the games did not work. Nor did the TV, or Wii, or the pool tables....We did ask the attendant at the desk , but she said she knew nothing about electronics, and we should find some "young person to help us out." The only other thing was their is a pretty large mosquito population. We would get eaten alive whenever we went outside. Probably due to being surrounded by vegetation. Nothing the Cottage owner can do about that, but we did find a can of "OFF" in the bathroom cabinet which we where very grateful for.
Overall the cottage was great and Palmer's where fantastic to deal with. Thank you Cindy!
Very clean, great cottage !
We are so happy we chose this cottage ! It was very clean and had a lot of extra amenities. Cindy and Ted were wonderful to work and so helpful. They sent us a list of contents available in the cottage and that really helped with our packing and we didn't have to pack as much !
The location of the cottage was great, an easy walk to pools and barn and playground. The kids loved taking the trolley even though we didn't need to. It was great to have WiFi in the cottage.
It was a great vacation in the perfect cottage. We were all so comfortable here that when we were packing to leave the kids asked when we were coming back to " our " cottage again. We will be back !
Thanks Cindy and Ted for sharing your cottage with us.
We loved having you stay at our cottage. Thanks, Nicki.
The good life
My wife and I stayed here and had a wonderful time. After a day at the beautiful nearby beach it was a true pleasure to return to this first-rate cottage to open a bottle of wine, cook a delicious meal and relax. Everything we needed was there and we slept the sleep of the truly content in the luxurious bed. We arose early to explore the towns, sights and restaurants of the surrounding area. This is the way to experience the good life on the Maine coast.
Thanks for this review, friend. Very helpful.
Very comfy, pleasant place at a good price! Immaculate, stylishly decorated, well supplied with games, linens, kitchenware, etc. Convenient to lovely Wells Beach, restaurants, kayaking, hiking at Laudholm Farm, Audubon site, mountain trails in nearby Oqunquit. Children love the little trolley, pools, playground. But as an older couple we loved the peace and quiet, playing board games, walking on the beach, great seafood. Hope to go back again soon.
And we look forward to having you return. Thanks for this lovely review.
Perfect spot for an easy family vacation
We stayed in the cottage over July 4th 2014 and couldn't have asked for a better space for us and our 3 young kids! Located right int the middle of the grounds, it is an easy walk to both pools, the playground and clubhouse. The kids loved swimming in the pool, riding the trolley and being able to play outside the cottage while we barbequed. We love summer village and this cottage was very clean and well appointed with toys and other necessities. There is a cute bakery just outside of the summer village complex that made for a great morning walk. It was a very fun week and this cottage provided everything we needed.
The best of the beaches of southern Maine.

Courtesy bath and dish towels are available though we ask guests to wash, dry, fold and return the towels to the drawer if they use them. We stock some cleaning supplies, toilet paper, napkins and paper towels twice over the season, but if the supply runs out the traveler might need to replenish. The Wifi password is posted in many places within the cottage. The gas grill requires that each burner is lit separately, somewhat different than most grills. The kitchen is fully stocked for all types of food preparation. We ask that guests remove all food items, even if unopened, upon departure. All guests are asked to treat our cottage with the care they would show to their own home and to honor the family resort spirit of Summer Village.
