Dog-friendly cottage w/ amazing sunset views, across the street from the beach!

Bask in the breezy, beachy atmosphere of this dog-friendly Wells cottage, a lovely Maine escape with a simple, charming interior, beautiful sunset views of a tidal marsh, and easy walking access to the beach and ocean one block away!

This tidy, single-level cottage sits on the eastern edge of the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve, just across Atlantic Avenue from the sand and surf of Wells Beach. Take morning walks to watch the lobster boats come and go from Wells Harbor three-quarters of a mile north, spend your afternoons boogie boarding and sunbathing on the ocean beach, and search for hidden treasures in the dozens of antique shops that line Wells' stretch of Route 1 three miles west.

Wake up to the sounds of coastal birds nesting in the neighboring wetlands and brew a fresh pot of coffee in the cozy kitchen. Assemble a homemade fruit salad for breakfast using local Maine blueberries, toss your flip-flops and beach towels in your bag, and spend the morning building sandcastles on Wells Beach. Come home at lunchtime to prepare a New England clambake on the charcoal grill while the free WiFi streams some tunes. Indulge in a peaceful afternoon nap in the sitting room, and catch an unforgettable sunset over the marsh with a cocktail or a local microbrew in hand. One dog is welcome to come along, though please note our nightly pet fee.

I just loved staying in the marsh. It was so relaxing watching the tide come in through the beautiful windows. The beach is only a 5 minute walk. I can’t wait to come back

I came here for 6 days in July with my husband and 1 year old son for a family vacation. The house is in a great location with the marsh directly behind the house and just a short 2 minute walk (basically across the street) to the beach. This was a perfect spot for us to come back to from the beach for naps and meals. If you are considering bringing a baby/small child just know there is only a stand up shower, but we made it work! The living room area has panoramic views of the marsh and it’s absolutely gorgeous to watch the sunset from.

If you enjoy kayaking or paddleboarding the marsh is a beautiful and calm place to paddle. My husband and I brought our paddleboards and we were able to launch them right from the backyard during high tide! My husband and I would definitely rebook this house next year!

Booked the place for a couple of weeks to “escape” during pandemic (Maine resident and live 30 mins inland from cottage). It was absolutely perfect! From sunrises on the beach to sunsets over the marsh nightly, it was a magical place and I would go again in a heartbeat...
It was more than enough space for my medium sized pup and myself and my husband came and stayed on weekends with plenty of room for the three of us.
The beach is a three minute walk from the cottage and the bird life on the marsh was amazing during down time relaxing in the cottage.

This small cottage, right on the tidal marsh, has great views and is only a 5 minute walk to the beach. Bedrooms are small but adequate and the kitchen has everything you need. The living area and dinning room are roomy and comfortable. The bathroom is tiny and could use some TLC. We experienced a "cyclone-bomb" storm while we were there. While the winds and rain were ferocious and the tidal surge came up almost to our door, we were snug and dry inside! We enjoyed our stay very much and the dog thought it was great!
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Judi! We are glad that overall you enjoyed your stay at this location. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we’ll pass your helpful comments regarding the bathroom onto our management team to evaluate. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

Cute cottage with comfy furnishings. Great views, lots of birds.
Water comes within 6 feet or so of the blue picnic table, very neat at night with full moon. Inside room with windows great for viewing and hanging out or taking naps. Heat was great this time of year. Bathroom small, but water was hot. No complaints. Would stay here again without a 2nd thought. Walk to Wells beach in less than 5 minutes. Great for 2 people.

This place is wonderful to see the most magnificent sunsets!
A short walk will take you to the ocean, though you also have a wonderful view of beautiful birds on the Marsh side!

The 5 of us girls had a wonderful weekend together. This house is close to water and quick walk to the beach. It was clean, but for us the house a bit too small for the 5 of us adults.
Leah Y. Sep 2019
extremely cute old fashioned cottage with an incredible view of the tidal estuary _ which high tide was under the living room & flooded the picnic area. comfortable for 3 adults. less than 5 minute walk to beach & you can hear it at night. our stay was after Labor day so can't imagine the traffic jam during high season- clean, no odors & well equipped kitchen. This one stays on our list!!!!!

This location is so up my wife’s & my alley. When we’re on vacation, we enjoy alone time without much confusion at all. This cottage on marsh side(sunsets right over marsh), 2nd from the end of dead end road & 2 minute walk from beachside is heaven. Our 2nd year in same location. Only thing that stopped us from rebooking same week next year for same weekend was very steep price increase. We were so sad, but absolutely sure some family will love-love it here at this awesome spot!

Beautiful marsh views and very peaceful street. Very close walk to the beach. Technically it can sleep 5, but 5 adults would be tight, especially since the bunk bed room is very small. Other than that, I would highly recommend.
Maxime C. May 2019
Very well located and plenty of windows to enjoy the view.
Donna c. May 2019
I was surprised How nice the cottage was. it was everything I thought an more.
Fibiger R. Oct 2018
The Eastern Avenue cottage was cute and cozy, neat and clean. It was in the perfect location to sit and watch the birds on the marshland or walk to the beach - 200 steps! We enjoyed out stay there and appreciated having a dog friendly property to rent that was on our favorite stretch of beach in southern Maine. Will definitely rent again when we vacation there the next time.

Right on Wildlife estuary. High tide comes right up to within a few feet of the house.
Narissa L. Aug 2018
Loved this cute little house! Perfect for the 3 of us. 4 would have fit comfortably. Wish there was a washer/dryer, had a hard time drying things out. View was incredible and the short walk to the beach was perfect. Would definitely stay again.
Sam S. Jul 2018
How beautiful and quiet the marsh was for one. Sunsets right out over the marsh and watching from our sitting room. The short 4 minute walk to a great sandy beach with loads of space to enjoy.
Also the upkeep & A/C at cottage was tremendous as well. Loved the fact that besides loads of places to dine out, my wife and I like to keep it simple and eat in. We not only had a great seafood store at the Lobster Pound, but also a Hannaford supermarket both right up the road. We booked for next year before we left.
Scott M. Jun 2018
