Description of the Wells vacation home rental
HAD A 2 WEEK CANCELLATION AT THE END OF JULY/BEGINNING OF AUGUST! GRAB IT BEFORE ANYONE ELSE DOES!
This is a beautiful home in the woods. It must be seen to be truly appreciated. We have been finished ourremodel/rehab finally and are ordering all new furniture and mattresses, bedding, towels, kitchen equipment and so on. I AM and WILL BE POSTING MORE PHOTOS of the furniture as we choose it. The map has it pinpointed incorrectly so if you're looking, it's at the corner of Nottingham Drive and Loop Road. Actually, the 2.6 acres takes up that entire "corner."
The breezeway/LR has a cathedral ceiling, lots of windows looking into the woods but with lots of light.in addition to the usual LR furniture, it will have a full size fold out comfy couch, leather club chair, and a wardrobe for a large party that will need a "bedroom" for two more adults.There's a door between it and the kitchen. It will also have a 50" flat screen TV on a console with a DVD player. All TVs will have streaming video capabilities and include Netflix, Amazon, Hulu with Showtime, and CBS All Access.
Next to that is the large almost new kitchen and a peninsula counter that separates it from the coffee/reading room with lounge chairs and tray tables. Books and games are on the bookcase.
The dining room will have a table large enough to seat 8 with a buffet and 3 windows, 2 that look out onto the raised bed garden and brick paths.
The main floor bedroom will have a queen bed, white nightstands and dresser and 32" TV.
Across from it is the large bath with 4' vanity, tub/shower, and the washer/dryer. Above these are the cupboards for linens and towels and cleaning supplies.
Upstairs there is also a large bathroom which is quite lovely and has a linen closet.
Two adult guests can enjoy the king-size bed in the MBR, with a low profile window AC, ceiling fan with its own remote, 32" flat screen TV and a large walk-in closet.
Across the wood floor hall is the 3rd bedroom accommodating 3 persons which is long and has both a full bed and twin bed each with its own night stand and chest. There is a closet here as well.
All bedrooms have a ceiling fan and window air conditioners; the breezeway and breakfast room have AC units and the DR has a ceiling fan.
If you have a boat or ATVs on a trailer, there is plenty of room to park or if there are more than two cars in a large party, don't worry!
Pause for a moment and prioritize your play time. York County Coast has plenty to offer for the best taste of summer. Drink it in!
Guests may want to try the great local restaurants, especially for anything lobster!
Payment methods: G-Wallet, Money Order, Cashier's Check, Cash on arrival.
The back yard has seating and tables, a 4 burner propane grill, and a natural stone fire pit with plenty of wood to light and enjoy a bug free evening or warm you up if the evening is cool.
The front yard is for the owner's flower and vegetable garden and ripe vegetables and herbs may be purchased as well.
MOVE QUICKLY ON RESERVATIONS. BOOK NOW!!! Already received multiple inquiries (including former guests when it was only the town house) through AUGUST 27th. IT'S A GREAT PLACE TO RELAX AND ENJOY and it's a DEAL/STEAL compared to other places of similar size. It's only February and seven of the thirteen weeks are booked. Forgot to mention: I allow small fireworks in the driveway of the property, but I have to stand by and be your personal firefighter. ONLY ONE WEEK IS LEFT IN JULY, 2 WEEKS IN AUGUST AND 3 WEEKS IN JUNE. That means more than half the summer has been booked. GET YOUR INQUIRIES IN ASAP! Come on up!
Sorry, but NO SMOKING and NO PETS.
Area Information
This is the quiet part of Wells a couple of miles away from the beach in the woods, but an easy bike ride or drive to get to the beach on off hours if you're like the owner and don't like crowds.
It's easy to learn your way around from here and find lovely places to ride bikes or go for hikes or just kick back here by the firepit in the back yard in the evening.
There is plenty of room to park and go in your own two front entrances in the front of the house. The 900sqft garage holds two large cars or SUVs.
Wells is right next to Ogunquit with Perkins Cove, only a few miles to York with Nubble Lighthouse, and fun Portsmouth, NH is only a 25 minute drive. I could go on, there are many lovely beaches, lighthouses, and other places, including great restaurants, and scenes to enjoy.
Nearby Restaurants
You can't miss Billy's Chowder House for the fun, the great menu and the great location.
There are also haute cuisine restaurants, some in historic buildings, to tempt your palate.
Transportation
Try the trolley if you want to go to Ogunquit and not fight traffic or parking. If you want a day trip to Boston, take the Downeaster from the Wells Amtrak station. I will show you the back ways to York and Ogunquit and Kennebunk to avoid Highway 1 congestion.
Best Time of the Year to Travel
I love the summers here and the beauty of New England coasts cannot be beat. Surf, boogie board, deep sea fish, learn about lobstermen on a tour out of Perkins Cove, bike, hike, enjoy!

Other Vacation Rental Amenities
Fantastic gourmet restaurants abound in southern York along the coast from York itself up to Kennebunkport. Or you can get takeout for what you'd like to eat in your own place. A fire in the evening is relaxing in the natural granite fire pit in the back yard. This is a real "get away from it all" type of rental.
You may request daily maid service for an added fee depending on that you wish to have done.

The owner was very nice and has my same values by this I mean clean and pleasant surrounds both in and outside the rental......The sad part about this is the home is up for sale....Hope she sales so she can move on with her life ... But will rent if she is still in the area next year......

Owner Supplied Testimonials
Guestbook

From Steve: I stayed for two weeks at this place and wanted to help Anna work in her garden and mow and take care of the it all. She really makes sure it looks beautiful and peaceful and is very protective of guests. She also taught me the back ways to navigate south as it gets very crowded from the end of June through Labor Day. You couldn't find a better place at a better rate with a better host than here.

From Carli, the traveling nurse from Kentucky: Anna is a kind, thoughtful, helpful hardworking Swedish woman who guarded my rest and sleep as I filled in for nurses on vacation at nearby York Hospital. She took me to have my very first lobsters at Billy's and took me to listen to a fantastic band. We also made one dinner in the kitchen and sat on the breezeway porch to chat and laugh and enjoy. The price for such a large lovely quiet home was so reasonable. I needed the quiet for me to get enough sleep as my shifts had to change according to what the hospital needed. Oh, I almost forgot, Anna taught me how to boogie board!

From Ginger in New Jersey: Spent 10 days in early July as a "guest" of Anna in her beautiful vacation house and property. She took me to an outside by the sea dance and sat on the porch in the morning while I had my coffee. We made dinner together in the kitchen one night and ate outside while a fire kept the bugs away. It's a beautiful area from Kennebunk to Portsmouth and this is right in between. The beaches there are mixed. The best with soft sand and good waves is Drakes Island just at the northeast end of Wells. I would recommend this as a GREAT deal and the onsite owner/caretaker as a wonderful helpful person.
