Reviews for this vacation cottage rental in Wells, Maine
Lewiston, Me USA
A wonderful Place! and a great vacation!
August 17, 2015
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
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
August 7, 2015
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.
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
WOW Cheryl! Bandit gave our Cottage 5 Paws!! I will have to go into the Guest Dog box and add something. May be some special treats made in The Villages, FL doggie store.....yes even even the dogs are spoiled in this big retirement community. We think you came at the right time because it is a little crazy in July & August. Glad things went well & appreciate your nice note. Take Care & good health to you all & of course Bandit too! Sue
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.

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.
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.
Thank you - Thank you! We try to make the cottage your home. I do the first total cleaning & stocking around May1st. Then I have this wonderful lady named Linda & she is a treasure. She keeps our cottage clean & comfortable till we close in October. We hope your little dog got to use some of the things in the "Dog Guest" Box & had a good stay. September is a nice quiet time to come. Take care, Sue
September 24, 2013
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.
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
August 25, 2013
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.
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
Watercrest crest cottage and the living is easy!
August 12, 2013
Me and my sister went there with my 2 childrens.We enjoy a lot this place !Was very charming,all the tings we needed was there.It is peaceful and quiet all the time,the pool and the spa was very cool to!Even the rainy days was great to stay there.We will surely come back!Marie
Thank you so much! Our pool on the property has just been up dated this June with beautiful tile & deep blue interior. We have a new Spa with a special stone layer around the edge for ease of access when in a wheelchair. Glad you got to use them both. I see the movies came in handy, sorry about the rain. Your review is much appreciated, Sue
Very nice cottage!
July 6, 2013
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!
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

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?
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
Awesome for kids
August 31, 2012
Our first time renting a cottage. Very clean with everything we needed for our stay. Nice pool, friendly staff! We stayed in a handicap accessible cottage due to my grandma and her walker and it was perfect! Every morning we ran to wells beach and back, right next to a grocery store and Dunkin donuts too!! We stay here again!
Thank you for the very nice review but I must let you know you and your Grandmother stayed in Cottage #101. Cottages #101 and #102 are special Handicapped access Units. My cottage #109 has two steps at the entrance. I am really happy you liked Water Crest because we all are individual owners in a Association. We work to keep everything looking nice.
Again, Thank You! Sue

My vacation started with a rainbow and ended with a beautiful sunrise. Best of all the week in between was perfect. The cottage was clean,comfortable and quiet. The location makes it easy to access area sights or you can just hang out at the beautiful pool. I will definitely return.

Nice quiet cottage
July 17, 2012
Fully equipped. Extremely quiet and clean. The trolley stops right in front of the resort. Great way to go to the beach. I would recommend this cottage to anyone that loves a quiet and comfortable spot.

Best stay in Wells
August 26, 2011
It was a very quiet place. You can sleep until 8:00 am whithout earing any noise. Everything is there make your stay confortable : pool, SPA,BBQ, picinic table... The cottage is full equiped; you can cook everything you want to. All equipments work approparly. The only negative thing is that the air conditionning don't refresh enough the bedroom. Instead, there's a fan that can brings you fresh air. We recommand this place and surely come back a second time.

the cottage was very clean and well kept everything was provided for except a few items. The place did not have a living area, had to watch TV in the bedroom. the weather was hot so the bedroom was warm too, we could have used a window fan, the screened porch was very comfortable, we did enjoy our stay as it was only 3 nights
vacation at its best

We took our first family trip to Maine last week, my husband, myself, and our 17 month old son. The cottage was quaint, cozy and quite homey. It was the perfect size to keep a close eye on our little guy, who is very active. Cottage and all property were well maintained and clean. Location was great, close to everything, very easy to find. Everything from booking to check out was great, nice and easy.

My daughter had 2 upcoming doctor appointments and we both needed some time to get away and relax and that's just what we were able to do. We stayed in cottage #109 for 4 days and when we left we felt like we were leaving "our" home. We have never done this before but we will definately come back

Very Relaxing Time!
September 12, 2008
My husband and I stayed in a one bedroom cottage (#136) at the beginning of September 2008. The cottage was very clean, quaint with nice furnishings. The amenities were great especially the kitchenette, gas grill, laundry on site, full bath with shower/tub, cable TV, etc. It was a quite place to stay while being close to restaurants, beaches, churches and other local interests. The price was great for an off-season rental. We really enjoyed our stay here.

We had a great experience at Water Crest Cottages. Irene and Paulette in the office were very friendly and the cottage was spotless and comfortable. We've stayed in several different places around the area over the years and this was by far at the top of our list. We hope to stay there next summer. Thanks for everything. Beth
Dear Sue & Skip we are from Montreal, Canada and usually stay around York or Wells area. This is the first time at Water Crest. We love your place, it is so clean and you leave nice things for people. This does show you care. Thank you,
