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!!!

We had heard about VBTS from my cousin and decided to give it a try. We were very happy we did!! Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. We were so impressed with the accommodations. Our unit had a complete full-sized kitchen, beautiful large living room and dining room, and large bedroom and bathroom. All were very nicely decorated and extremely comfortable. You will never get that in a regular hotel room.

They are also located close to many activities. Of course, the beach is very close. There is also the Kittery, Me outlet shopping, many restaurants and tourist attractions are right out your door.

My mother, sisters, nieces, great nephew, and I recently stayed in two units at VBTS. The accommodations were clean and well appointed. I dreaded the idea of staying in a hotel room with my very active, fourteen month old great nephew so I investigated other options. I am so glad I did! We had a wonderful time. In the evening, the kids decided to bake cookies, we ordered in food, and whole family lounged and talked in the living room. My sister and nephew went to the pool and loved it. We encountered one snag (the bathroom door locked from the outside) and maintenance came and quickly fixed the problem. Everyone was very happy with the resort and we definitely plan to come back again next year.

Room Tip: We enjoyed having a balcony off the living room.
