About Susan L O'Connell

I purchased 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.

My husband maintains the property, offers charters on our lobster boat 'Susie-Q', and is the assistant harbor master.

Why Susan L O'Connell chose Southern Coast

It is 'Off the beaten path'. It has beautiful, uncrowded, peaceful green areas and yet is just one mile up the street from the ocean.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Our property borders 2 wildlife preserves (Laudholm Farm and Rachel Carson) with walking trails and delightful bird watching. Kayaking in the salt marsh is a popular activity, with rentals nearby.

Drakes Island Beach is just under one mile from our property. A lovely white sand beach, with nothing commercial, just a beach to enjoy sunbathing, swimming, beach combing, and strolling aside the surf.

Wells Harbor is just a mile and a half away. There you can enjoy the beautiful scenery, go fishing, rent kayaks, paddle boards and jet skis, or charter a fishing boat. A marina and a few seafood restaurants are located at the harbor, and seasonal outdoor concerts are held at the harbor park.

The town of Wells offers many excellent restaurants, shops, antique shops, golf course, miniature golf, movie theatre, as well as grocery stores, department stores, and pharmacies

The picturesque villages of Ogunquit and Kennebunkport border the town of Wells, and we have a train station where you can board the Down Easter and travel north to Freeport, and south to Boston.
