We stayed here the last week of June in 2016 and now are returning. Beautiful little family run place. Jessica and Joe could not be better hosts. Our cottage was clean and accommodated the four adults plus two yorkies. This is close to so many places in the area. Like I said we are going back this year.

We stayed at The Beaches over Labor Day weekend. We loved that we could bring our dog! The room was very clean, and was a decent size. Perfect for us who are in and out all day. Our kids loved the pool! Swam day and night! Pool was clean and there were a few pool toys for them to play...

The Beaches is a 60's motel with a wonderful personality. From the minute you arrive to the time you leave you and your family and dog are emeshed in a warm and comfortable embrace provided by the owners. The rooms and cottages are nicely appointed, very clean and take you back to a time when life was simpler. Wells is...

We just spent a week at The Beaches, we stayed in a Cottage and it was super clean with every thing we needed. We had a very relaxing week, used the pool and did some barbequing on the supplied grill and charcoal. Great place to bring your dog as they are dog friendly. Look forward to going back again next...

Wife and I stayed here last week with our pet Pembroke Welsh Corgi dog for our first visit to Maine. We have wanted to visit this state for a long time and so glad we did. We researched pet friendly cabins back in the winter and this place was one of the top results. Made reservations in January with the...

Owners had great dog rules and trust in owners being the experts of their pets. Room was very nicely decorated. Hardwood floors so Fido messes are more easily cleaned. They do not want to upset Fido so room service has to be requested. Close to beach and all other amenities. Would definitely stay here again.

Very nice place to stay. The location is a short drive to the beaches in Wells. Hardest part is to find parking at the beach lots. Pay to park all day 15-20 dollars. Ogunquit is also a short drive..well worth with it for dinner. The motel is a little older property but they keep it very clean and tidy. Rooms...

This place has come a long way forward. The new owners are young with 2 dogs themselves. I must say 1st off that the beds are out of this world. Most comfortable I have ever slept in. 1st impression was over the phone, very responsive and extremely friendly. Upon arrival the grounds are beautifully landscaped and still being improved.
