About Cheryl

After owning and operating a 27 unit Motel in Vermont for 14 1/2 years we purchased Barefoot Cottage. Vacationing at Wells Beach with family for years and the dream of having our own beach house finally came true.

Cheryl purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Cheryl chose Wells

Barefoot, Oceanside with direct access and steps to the beach is a perfect spot. You'll find our cottage exceptionally clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you need for your vacation.

What makes this cottage unique

We continue to make improvements and upgrades on this cottage.

Barefoot Cottage Northside

  • 5 of 5

The Northside Cottage was beautiful, clean and there was more than enough room for the four of us. Loved that it was steps from the beach and had a great view. We are definitely interested in visiting again and would highly recommend this cottage to other families.

Wonderful stay on Wells Beach.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the north cottage for the week with my family, wife, daughter 21, son. daughter-in-law in their mid 30's and 3 year old granddaughter . Owner Cheryl was very easy to work with. Cottage was very clean with all necessary amenities. Well equipped kitchen with all that you need for making breakfast, lunch or dinner. Views and 30 second walk to ocean beach. Very good value. Will be staying again soon and telling all my friends this is a must stay location.

Another Wonderful Experience in Barefoot!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been visiting Wells Beach every summer for 12 years, the last two of which were spent at Barefoot. As a lifelong Mainer, the greatest compliment I can give is that Barefoot epitomizes what a cottage on the Maine coast is supposed to be. Warm, cozy, welcoming and of course, just steps away from one of the best beaches in the state. There's plenty of room for the four of us, it is spotlessly clean and well-equipped. The seaside bedroom upstairs offers a wonderful view of the sunrise and we fall asleep at night listening to the pounding of the surf. As our boys get older — they're now 12 and 9 — my wife and I appreciate and treasure more and more the time we spend with them at the beach. Finding Barefoot was a great stroke of luck. We'll be back again next summer. I recommend it without reservation, especially for families with young children (but you can't have our week).

Everything is Better at the Beach...including this cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week in Barefoot Northside and it was perfect. The cottage was half of a duplex and was the perfect size for us. The house was exactly as it is pictured (which we have learned isn't always the case) and was spotlessly clean and decorated adorably. It was so well equipped and the cookware and appliances were in such good shape you actually wanted to use them. We would definitely rent either side of this property again and even looked at their larger property across the street. Owner was a pleasure to work with also. Thanks for a fantastic place!
