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 Wells
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.

Very nice place to stay. Very clean and very peaceful. Would like to go back and stay again in the future.
Very well appointed cottage. Has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Close to the beach and all activities.
Cute and clean!
We enjoyed our time at the cottage. We were impressed with how clean it was. The beach was only a short drive away. Unfortunately, the mattresses were rock hard.
The cottage was comfortable and clean. We had everything we needed for the weekend. Very nice!
I would definitely stay here again!
Drake Island Stay
We enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage was clean and the location was lovely. Can't beat the price. Hope to return soon. The only suggestions I would make would be to place hooks on the back of the bedroom doors so there would be a place to hang towels.
Charming, cozy and quiet. Enjoyed that it was close to the beach. Would not hesitate to book again. We had a great stay!
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.
