Property description

4 bedroom, 2 full bath cottage. Large kitchen with 2 dining tables (seats 12+), open to the living room. Living room has 2 couches with Smart TV (internet capable to access your Netflix or other gaming accounts) & DVD. The sunroom porch has a full size pull out couch and serves as a second Smart TV/DVD room. Master bedroom has a queen size bed, Smart TV and has a full bath attached. 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds, 3rd bedroom has a twin bed plus a twin bunk bed. 3rd bedroom has a single twin. All bedrooms have mattresses that have been very recently replaced.

There is a very large yard for the kids. There are two decks for lounging. The back deck has a table & chairs for outdoor meals or just relaxing. There is an outdoor grill. We keep the mosquitoes under control, so the out doors areas are very usable!

Drakes Island is a great family location with only residential properties and a long sandy beach. An easy 5 minute walk to the beach means no parking fees, the flexibility to easily come and go to the beach and lots of choices that do not require a car.

The Drakes Island Association clubhouse, playground and tennis courts offer many organized activities for kids of all ages.

Visitor Memberships may be obtained by tenants who are renting a Drakes Island property. The price is VERY reasonable (in 2014 a family membership is $30 for 1 week or $40 for 2 weeks). This membership carries the same privileges as a permanent resident membership and allows you to reserve the tennis courts and have your kids participate in the Kids Day Camps.

Please go to the Drakes Island Associations website at DIIA.org for details and the membership forms.

Bring your bikes to ride along the quiet residential streets. A permanent land bridge from Drakes Island makes for easy access to shopping, restaurants, and movies on the main land.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: My father's family started vacationing on Drakes Island in 1913 and fell in love with it. So far, 5 generations of our family have come every summer since then. No matter how far away parts of our family have moved, we all come 'home' every summer to recharge and commune with nature.

Why the Owner Chose Wells, ME, USA:
This is the original cottage my parents started out with in 1956 and where I grew up when I lived on Drakes Island every summer. My brother owned the cottage after my parents passed away and we have now purchased the cottage from my brother.
