Description from owner
Our cottage is located just off Route 1 in Wells. The Water Crest complex has multiple cottages. Each one is individually owned and decorated. Ours (we think) is very special & we try hard to make it like home for our guest. It was built in 1940 and we have totally renovated but tried to keep the look of the 40's & 50's. It has one large bedroom with 2 double beds(new box & mattresses). The kitchen dining area is one room with all replaced appliances. Stove and hot water are gas. We have a large bath (Handicapped safety bars) with constant hot water on demand a hairdryer & curling iron. The front porch is glass/screen enclosed for sitting out in the evening there is a flat screen TV on the wall.. All dishes, pots,pans & lobster pot provided. New windows, floors, AC/Heat unit, new microwave, toaster coffeemaker, etc. Cable, New Flat Screen TV/New & VCR/DVD player, movies, games & books. There is a gas grill & table out front & a play/sports area in the field. We do not provide sheets & towels or beach towels. The service is available at the office for a small fee.
The heated pool is over on the front row of cottages with a nice Hot Relaxing New Spa. We picked this cottage because it is on a corner lot & is quiet. Free Laptop hook up. Library, washers & dryers are under the office. We also have free WIFI in our cottage.
Check in is Saturday 4:00 PM & check out is next Sat 10:00AM so the cottage can be cleaned. Our association will require a credit card imprint for security deposit against loss or damage. Maine State Tax has gone up to 9%.

About the owner
We have this cottage because my husband would not leave New England & move to Florida without a way to come back each year. The cottage was built in 1940 as a motel (we think). We got her 14 years ago & each year gave her something new. She is all done. I am a retired nurse & we live i...View owner's full profile

“A wonderful Place! and a great vacation!”
My daughter, grandson, boyfriend and I stayed at the 109 cottage for the 2nd week in August. We could not have been happier. We didn't use our car at all unless to run to the very close IGA....we used the trolley to get back and forth to the beach...so never did have to use a gas station!!! Wells Beach is so beautiful...along with Ogunquit beach...Although we have lived in Maine for 15 years this is the first vacation we took going South....We met so many fun people that had all been to the Watercrest Cottages many times before...the pool was awesome, although we wished it stayed open a little longer the 9pm but...really was not an issue!!! the play area for the kids was perfect..my grandson loved being there and also made lots of friends...the whole area was clean, kid friendly and we felt very safe After exchanging emails, and FB info with our new friends...we are all going to try to go again, the same week!! and the owners of Watercrest could not have been nicer then we had there...(not meaning this to be an after thought!!) I would absolutely recommend these cottages to anyone wanting a nice place in Wells to vacation!! mlb
Owner's reply: Hi Marylou, First off Thank You for such a nice review. I always tell people about the trolley and this is the first time I have excellent feed back from your use. It is great! In July & August route 1 and parking at the beaches is crazy! I also think this is a safer way to vacation. The reunion sounds fun and I hope it happens. You may end up with long term friends for life. I did! I met a person in Tampa she was from MA & we have shared a room at our psych. nursing conference for 17 yrs.
“Nice little cottage”
For 2 adults, this is a nice little cottage for the price. We stayed 1 week in July and had great weather. Beach's are within 5 minutes by car. You can walk down the street to either the Steak House (awesome steaks) pricey, but well worth it. Mike's clam shack is walk able too. The owners Sue & Skip have done a very nice job keeping this little cottage up. I would go back again.
Owner's reply: Hi Jerry, Thank you! The food around the cottage is definitely one of the good points. We miss clams & Lobster (Florida just doesn't have that special taste). I looked and I think you will be using the little cottage in October for a long weekend. Hope the weather is nice and the trees have beautiful color. I will give you a quick call to see if there is anything you need. Take care, Sue
Cottage # 109 is just so cozy. Plenty of room for 2 people with a dog. Bandit made some new doggie friends, we met some great people who were staying there as well. Nice and quiet, clean pool area was nice and clean, even had it to myself one day amazing. Close to all kinds of beaches and attractions and one of my favorites Veranos Italian restaurant. Had asked for an early check in was advised fine , check in was smooth , check out was smooth all in all a great vaction cant wait to go back next year. Bandit gives this cottage a high 5 paw rating !! Cheryl, Lori and Bandit
Owner's reply: Thank you for the picture of Bandit! Any special dog treats that he might like for next year.
“Great Place To Stay”
A very quaint set up. Our cottage had everything we needed. It was conveniently located for our plans. We would stay here again, especially in the off season and it was dog friendly.
Owner's reply: Thank you both! Also, thank you for the suggestion. I will talk with the man who has done most of the remodeling for us. Much as I hate to say it ......we are all getting older & safety is a priority. Please come again any time. Sue
My husband and I recently stayed at the Water crest Cottages. We brought our dog Jingles with us. The cottage was very cozy and it was evident that the owners tried to provide all the comforts of home. The complex is peaceful and convenient to stores and beaches. The beds were comfortable and clean. The kitchen was well stocked with everything that we needed. We will definitely come again. We would highly recommend this as a place to come for a relaxing vacation.
Owner's reply: Hi Stella! Thank you so much for your nice thoughts. Our cottage (we hoped) would be your home away from home. I am glad we are getting there! We have a guest book on the kitchen table & our guest leave suggestions that have helped a lot. Our guest are our priority.....including guest dogs. Thankx again, Sue
We stayed at the Cottage Unit 109 in September of this year. The cottage was very clean, the kitchen was well equipped and had everything you would need. It is a beautiful area to visit and we would rent the cottage again. Although we did not use the pool it look very clean and well maintained.
We very much enjoyed our stay,and would stay there again.We love Maine's coastline.Nice restaurants,and nice people too.Love pooll being heated and open in Sept.,and jacuzzi too.Staff very helpful and nice.Nice gas grills too,and reception for internet is terrific too.
Owner's reply: Michelle, The Cottage Condo Association just totally reconditioned our Pool & put in a new Jacuzzi, I am really glad you like it!! As for Maine food I agree it is outstanding. We only come up to our cottage once in the spring to open it. So we have to wait a year to get our "Food Fix" Clam Chowder, Lobster, Fried Clams, etc, etc. wonderful. Sue
“very clean and comfortable”
perfect size for 2 people since has a large kitchen, bedroom and screened porch but no living room area. The cottage was very clean and well supplied. Perfect location. Pet-friendly. Relaxing vacation.
Owner's reply: Hi Nancy, Thank you! We picked and bought this cottage because it was a corner lot & we could sit on the porch & see the Ocean in the distance. We also wanted a cottage for 4 people because we believed that our Guest would take care of it as if it were their own. In 13 years of Guest we have been fortunate that this is true. So we do not miss having a living room, we love our cottage and wouldn't trade for a bigger one. As you said all our rooms are large. Again, thankx for writing. Sue
“Very nice cottage!”
We found this cottage while seeking out a pet friendly place to stay. Sue responded immediately and was very helpful with a lot of useful information about the cottage, local tips for eating, cottage, etc. This family resort is in a great location that is very close to the shore (short drive) and to restaurants and shops. It was perfect for us since the place is truly pet friendly and we saw quite a few other families traveling with their furry family members too. When we got there Sue had left the cottage very clean and has stocked the cottage with positively everything that you will need for your stay...and more! Both my hubby and I thought the cottage was bigger than the pictures reflect. All three rooms were a nice size and did not have that crampt feeling we have felt in other cottages. This cottage is cozy, clean and we will definitely recommend to our friends and family that are planning a trip to Wells. Thanks so much to Sue and Skip for letting us stay in their lovely cottage!! We will be back again some day!
Owner's reply: Vicky & Hrayr, Thank you so much for this great review! We enjoy sharing our cottage with guest & I am always looking around for little things that will help make the stay comfortable. This year we added a local telephone because many of our guest are Canadian & if they use their cell phone it is a out of country call. Now all local calls are free. Vicky please come back any time, furry guest are special & always welcome too. Sue & Skip
“Water Crest Wells Maine”
Very comfortable homey charmIng cottage with very comfortable beds. Not noisy when we were there. Good neighbors. Air conditioner heater combination perfect for hot days and cool mornings . Well equipped cook in kitchen and lots of great food to eat out nearby. Bathroom with shower and tub and all the rest with lots of room. My dog, Oscar, also felt welcome and ar home. Shopping, beach, relaxation, friendly people. What more could a girl ask?
Owner's reply: Hi Margaret and Oscar, Thank you! I hope Oscar found his dog biscuits and the Blue Water Crest tags. The little dog tag has on it Cottage 109, Water Crest and the office phone number. I like my guest dogs to wear it so they can be returned immediately if something happens. Then they can leave the tag for the next guest. I am glad you like our cottage. Sue
