Reviewed September 1, 2012

My elderly Mom and I travel to Maine every year for our summer vacation but this was our first stay at The Beaches. Jessica and Joe at could not have been more wonderful! Our cottage was cozy and our stay was delightful; every effort was made to be sure that we were happy. We will be staying at The Beaches every for vacation from now on!

We've been looking for a nice place to stay for our wedding Anniversary and we finally found it. We rented cottage #1 and it was like no place we had ever been before. The owners were so nice and helpful, they made me feel like I had known them for along time. The inside of our cottage was extremely clean and nice and cozy. There was even a quilt on the bed. Most of the places around Wells have the same pine board and same bedspreads and the same curtains. Our little cabin was decorated so nice it made you love the feel of the place. We had our own little barbeque grill and they even provided the briquettes. The pool was really nice and clean and I really liked the gas fire pit that was pool side. The owners really work hard to keep the place nice and they took the time to show they cared. This place is such a change from other Hotels we've been at, we'll keep coming back!

Room Tip: Cottage # 3 is larger than the first two.

Joe and Jessica are the owners of this delightful property. They are wonderful, helpful, and caring people who take pride in everything they do.

My wife and I stayed in cottage two. It was sparkling clean, the beds were amazing (and I have a Tempurpedic at home!), and the screen-porch was nearly worth the price of admission - all by itself.

Joe and Jessica are very knowledgeable re: the attractions that Wells and the surrounding environs have to offer. They were almost a concierge service! For all of these reasons, and so much more, I urge you to stay in their wonderful facilities the next time you are in Wells, Maine.

We are travelers who like a comfortable bed, a clean room and quiet. Although we stayed only 1 night we were very satisfied and would definitely stay here again. The date we choose to stay all the rooms were booked. The only available lodging was a cabin. It was exceptionally clean and we slept very well. Next time we will try to reserve a room. Just one thing, no breakfast is offered. Owners are on premises and are welcoming.

We rented cottage #7 for a week. The cottage was very clean and comfortable.
The kitchenette and the BBQ was perfect to prepare our meals. Joe and Jessica were friendly and helpfull and the location was great!
The least: the pool open at 10:00 in the morning...it's little bit late. But we really enjoyed our stay and we are already trying to book our next visit en 2013!

We chose to stay at the Beaches for our wedding weekend, after checking out many local options. Joe and Jess are just fantastic! They were so kind and accommodating of all of our requests, and even went above and beyond and did all kinds of little "extra"things for us that made our weekend all the more special! My new husband and I (and the test of our friends/family that stayed there with us) agree that we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay! they have fine a wonderful job starting to update the Beaches since they took over ownership. They are very family and pet friendly too, which is an added bonus! We will definitely be back and highly recommend to anyone!

On a last minute whim I decided to come to Wells for the long Memorial Day weekend. I've stayed in Ogunquit/Wells countless times, but never with my dog. After researching pet friendly places to stay, we decided on The Beaches. We rented cottage 7, a two room cottage with a kitchenette. Upon arrival we realized that Jess and Joe are incredibly welcoming, and happy people. They honestly made us feel like we had chosen the perfect place to stay, within the first 15 minutes!

The owners have obviously gone through so much trouble to update the property in the year that they have owned it. The rooms were all incredibly clean and welcoming. Jess even mentioned that they are replacing all of their mattresses. (Ours was SO comfy) They have gone out of their way to try and think of everything that you may need for your stay. It was a welcome surprise to find a kitchenette complete with every utensil you could possibly need to cook a perfect meal.

Our first night we planned on going out to eat after spending the day at the beach. However, we ended up grilling our own burgers, and opening a glass of wine (they have wine glasses in the cabinets). We enjoyed every moment of it!

The property is also very dog friendly. Actually, most of the other guests there had one or two dogs. Since it's such a short trip to Wells beach, we brought our pup with us. She had a blast swimming and digging.

To say the least, we really enjoyed our stay. I'm already trying to book my next visit!
