About Betsy DiCapua
This property has a long and loving history. In 1928 my great aunt and uncle, Fred and Jessie Bennett bought the property, built their home and one small beach cottage. They named their business Sunrise Cottages. Every year after, my Uncle Fred built another cottage to a total of nine in all. He and my aunt rented for many decades. My parents, Harry and Peg Margeson took over as the next generation. Upon my dads death, my mom rented until 2005 when she became ill. With mixed emotions Sunrise Cottages closed its business after decades and generations of family visits. Literally grandparents brought their grandchildren to the cottage they stayed in as a child. My husband Sam and I decided to buy the property from my mom and in 2006 we moved into our beautiful home. My mom passed away on June 30, 2016 and had lived out her remaining 12 years in the house that had once been a cottage (my parents renovated one in 1991). We have taken her home, done some renovations and proudly and with love named it Sunrise Cottage. We have made a complete circle. For almost a century, many people enjoyed our beautiful spot on Mile Road in Wells. We are now sharing it again.

October in Maine
Our week stay in Maine was wonderful! The beach house was spacious and clean, and could accomodate our friends who came to visit with us. We will be back to stay at Betsy's again!
D&M from Montana
Loved the cottage and the town of Wells.
Beautiful quiet location
We stayed at this lovely Wells location for 5 nights. The price and size of location was well worth it! I would certainly stay here again. The fact that it is two separate apartments makes it ideal for a larger group. I also enjoyed that the location was perfect for quiet nights, but still close to Ogunquit and other places to visit. Betsy gave us some excellent tips on places to eat and visit. She was also very quick to reply to texts and answer any questions or concerns that we had. Thank you!
Beach fun in sun
We really enjoyed our stay in Wells and Betsy was a magnificent host, she made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our summer stay. The lodge has a lock our loft where our adult kids slept and our loft fit my wife and I as well as our 2 grandkids and niece comfortably. The trolly stopped right outside the property giving us access to many beaches as well as fun activities. We all really enjoyed our stay, two thumbs up!
We had a great week at this lovely beach home. We were so close to the beach that we could stop multiple times throughout the week. We traveled for a week with my brother in law and his family and this house was the perfect size to fit everyone comfortably!
Vacation in Maine
Property exceeds our expectations in every way possible. Extremely clean and accommodates 8 very comfortable. Betsy was very helpful with her knowledge of the area. Saved us lots of time trying to find things to do, and places to dine. Will definitely be back if we ever decide to visit this area again. Tina
