“Shorelands a great experience.”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2016

We went to Shorelands for 2 days out of our week long vacation. Someone in our party missed our Whale watch tour out of NH. I contacted the office to inquire about an early check-in and left the name of the person who missed the boat. He was allowed to check in and meet up with us later. The cabin/cottage had many amenities and was well kept. I would not hesitate to stay here again. They have bikes for guest to use, a pool, play ground, fire pit, BBQ and utensils. It is also a short jaunt to the beach. Thanks to Shorelands we have a great vacation experience.

“Anniversary getaway”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2016

We had a great stay at the Shorelands to celebrate our anniversary. Cottage was clean, beds comfortable and all the staff eager to help with whatever we needed. Everything we needed was available. Bathroom is a wee bit small but we survived!

“Our Anniversary Stay at Shorelands”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2014

Had an awesome stay here. Rented a "G" unit that was perfect for my wife, me and our Beagle. Small, but plenty big enough for us and very clean. It was a great value too-the location was perfect as it was far enough out of town to be very peaceful and quiet but less than a 10 min. drive to Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, or Wells and a 10 min. walk to Parson's beach which was also peaceful, secluded and beautiful. We also enjoyed the outdoor hot tub so much we never used our jaccuzzi tub in the room. After a lobster dinner in the room one night we had smores at the outdoor fireplace which we had to ourselves. Overall a great stay-I really hope to make it back here!

Owner's reply: thank you so much Tom. you have captured what we strive to be. we looking forward to your return. all the best, Sonja

“Clean chalet”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2014

This place was very clean and service was excellent. Close to a lovely beach (10 minutes walk). A few miles from Wells and Kennybunk. Did not use the facilities (pool, games) due to weather.

Owner's reply: Thank you, Michel, we appreciate you tasking the time to leave us your comments. Please come back in the summer during a sunny day!

“Impromptu weekend with the dogs!”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2014

The cottage was perfect. Casual & Cozy were the key words, but a great place to hang for the weekend. Two adults & two medium sized dogs, though sometimes underfoot, it had everything we needed. Full-sized fridge with it's own TV (who doesn't watch TV in the kitchen??), stove & microwave. A/C and fairly comfy beds too. Gas grill & picnic table right outside - arrive with a cooler of food and you'll never need to leave. Enclosed porch w/ chairs great for watching the morning sun. Access to common area with pool & firepit. And a LARGE field out back where the dogs could run like the wind when no one else was around. Perfect weekend.

Owner's reply: Thank you soo much for taking your time to write about us. You have certainly captured what we try hard to 'sell' here. so glad you found the field for your dogs. all the best, Sonja
