“Relaxing getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

We haven't ever had a bad experience at VBS. The units are pretty well maintained and always very clean.Some are decorated better than others.When booking they really try to go out of their way to get you into a unit that suits you.Out of the many times we have stayed there was only once that we asked to change a unit .I like that you get a small discount when you do repeat bookings.We love the indoor pool in the winter it's beautifully designed. many times we go there as family groups and take up multiple units and they try to get us all together .The units are always well stocked and comfortable! The staff are some of the most friendly and helpful i have ever encountered. we've been there during bad storms and they check on you to be sure your okay.Now who does that? VBS thats who.The wedding venue is BEAUTIFUL!

Room Tip: Check the web site to see which unit is right for you,different buildings have different types of ac...

Everyone was so welcoming from the greeting upon our arrival to the John the Maintenance man at the indoor pool.. John went out of his way to get my husband a pair of googles so he could do his laps in the pool. Restaurant selection was outstanding from the Irish Pub to Jake's for Breakfast.
The accomodation were just what we were looking for. A place to relax, read, and do nothing.
We can't wait to go back.

I stay here every November for an annual girls shopping weekend. The location is great, the staff are always very friendly and helpful. This time around we stayed in 11E. The unit was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Furniture was tasteful and comfortable, unit was very clean. Can't wait to come back next year!

Every year for Thanksgiving our small family of three travel to our favorite place in Wells, VBTS. This resort is a fabulous value. The units are clean, private, comfortable and well maintained. The pool and hot tub are a real treat and beautifully cared for. They have everything a person could want in the workout room.
The staff, management and housekeeping/groundskeeping crews are all friendly and very good at their jobs. They are caring and responsive.
This is your best choice in Wells. Relaxed, but upscale, friendly, but private and Very well run.

Room Tip: Buildings 1,2,3,4,5,and 6 in Chicadee building have the best marsh views especially top floor!

Village by the Sea is an absolutely perfect spot for a family or romantic get away. The fireplace in the room added an extra special feel to the atmosphere of the room. Full kitchen gives you the option to eat in and save a little bit of money if you choose. It has a great view, balconies for every room and close to many attractions and shopping experiences.

Our family of four stayed here and it was very nice from the tip of the driveway all the way through the room. Nice facility, reasonable price, clean and well decorated, friendly staff. Wish we could have stayed longer and will the next time!!!
