About Wells

Wells, Maine is the third-oldest town in the state, sandwiched between Kennebunkport and Ogunquit. Visitors are reminded of its rich history each time they pass the charming saltbox-style homes in this coastal town in southern Maine. Wells vacation rentals offer breathtaking views and provide an ideal way to enjoy Wells Beach and the surrounding areas.

Things to Do

The soft, powdery beaches are different from Maine's northern rocky outcroppings, but the water is still refreshingly crisp, even in August. Boating is a popular pastime, and there's plenty of water to enjoy from the Atlantic Ocean to the Webhannet River. Others stay on the fishing docks and wait for a catch or watch surfers and boogie-boarders ride the waves. In the summertime, free concerts are held at Wells Harbor Park.

Wells is a nature lover's paradise with seven miles of salt marshes and bird estuaries to explore at the Wells Reserve at Laudholm Farms. Stroll the trails at the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve, attend the Nature and Crafts Festival held each September, or check out the exhibits at the Maine Coastal Ecology Center and in the historic Laudholm farmhouse. There you'll enjoy a look back at Maine's rugged farming past.

The area also offers historic sites, antique shops, lighthouses, specialty shops, and more. Other places worth visiting include the Johnson Hall Museum, the Wells Auto Museum, and Wonder Mountain Fun Park. 

Transit

While staying in Wells vacation rentals, you'll want a car. The town is easily accessible from the Portland International Jetport in Maine or Portsmouth International Airport at Pease. Both are about 30 miles away. Once in Wells, walking and riding a bike provide a much more leisurely pace by which to explore the beautiful coastal landscape. Kayaking provides a relaxing way to appreciate the charming town from a new perspective and get close to its abundant sea life.

Climate

Wells weather operates in the extreme. Rolling thunderheads off the ocean and blustering winds are not uncommon. Harsh winters are the norm. But these extremes are breathtaking. Summer daytime highs are in the 80s and nights dip down in the 50s, providing perfect sleeping temps. During the fall, Maine puts on a glorious show with temperatures in the 60s and 70s and spectacular foliage.
