“Great Place To Stay!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2009

My wife and I had a wonderful time at the New Harbor View Cottages! It is a wonderful family owned business with fantastic views of the marsh. The friendly first class service we recieved was amazing, and really made us feel at home! It is conveniently located on route one near shops, restaurants, and is within walking distance to the beach. Also, the beautiful New Hampshire Seacoast is a short drive and offers tax free shopping! The cottages have everything you need for your vacation, including grills, cable TV, and kitchens. One of the many great things about this location is their pet friendly cottages! It was wonderful to be able to travel with our pets, and not have to put them in a kennel for the summer! The animals loved the screened porches!

We look forward to returning for many summers to come!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2009

This stay was easily the worst we have experienced in over 55 years of travel. When I called to ask about the accomodations, the owner assured me that all the cottages had been remodeled and new mattresses were purchased. We rented a one bedroom with a queen size bed. The owner said we would be pleasantly surprised. She was half right.
The bed was smaller than a double, the mattress was old, the floor was tilted and there was a curtain hiding a very small commode. I would guess the cottage had not been painted in 10 years. My daughter and her husband also rented a cottage and we could not believe it was in worse condition than ours.
The pool is listed as heated. It was not heated and extremely cold. When my daughter asked the owner how the pool was heated......he actually pointed to the sun. The owner said it cost $350 a day to heat the pool and they didn't want to spend the money.
Wells is beautiful with great beaches and restaurants. We highly recommend the area, but not New Harbor View Cottages.

DSFWellsME, owner at New Harbor View Cottages, responded to this review, October 1, 2009
We were very upset and surprised, when we read this review. We make every effort to provide a great place to vacation for all our guests. If any issue occurs, we respond quickly to correct it. Our cottages were re-painted in 2008. In 2007, we replaced all the double beds in the 1 and 2 bedroom cottages with queen-size Sealy posture-pedic plush top beds. It is true that we do not find it necessary to heat the pool during the summer months, since our pool is in the sun all day long. We feel horrible that this guest did not have a great time at New Harbor View. We do pride ourselves on the number of repeat guests that choose to join us year after year.
