Our waterfront cottage provides the best of both worlds. We are situated directly on the Wells Harbor beach where wave action is minimal and you may walk out for 100' before going over your head at high tide. A great place for canoes, kayaks, windsurfing, SUP's and striper fishing. It is very clean and quiet and we get to witness extraordinary sunsets every evening. We are in a very quiet neighborhood. As you can see on the map, we are near then end of the peninsula with water all around.
If you like the waves, the ocean beach is right across the street. When the surf is up, there are few better places in the area to surf and boogie board.
The cottage is midway between Ogunquit & Kennebunkport. Each is about 10 minutes away. It is 30 minutes from Portsmouth, NH, Portland, ME and outlet shopping in Kittery and Freeport. It is a little over an hour's drive to Boston or you can take Amtrak directly from Wells to Boston.
The Ogunquit Playhouse is 10 minutes away and the Hackmatack and Arundel Barn playhouses are 15 minutes away.
The cottage has new siding, windows and doors and flooring as well as interior paint. The mattresses are new Serta Perfect Sleepers. In 2016 we added a new washer & dryer. In 2017 we added a split system air conditioner/ heat pump.
The rental includes a gas grill and accessories, washer & dryer, boogie boards, beach chairs, skim boards and a cooler for the beach. There is an outdoor shower to get the beach sand off. There is a picnic table and Adirondack chairs to sit out and toast the sunset. Inside enjoy a 55” HDTV and free, private, dedicated wifi. The cottage is fully equipped including one complete set of bed and bath linens.
Parking is provided for 2 cars, saving you $16/day per car in parking fees, if you get up in time to get a spot. It is not "minutes" from the beach.
This is a private cottage. It is not a condo or apartment with, Lord knows who, sharing the your vacation with you. It is not located in a development of 200-400 identical cottages where you can hear your next door neighbor crunching his corn flakes in the morning.. The cottage has a great yard, a beach and a beautiful view. It is quiet and clean.
