I stayed here on the 4th of July weekend. It costs close to 200.00 for 2 people including tax and you are allowed 1 vehicle. I had 2 queen size beds, a shower with a bathtub in a large bathroom, an iron board & iron, a 1 cup coffer maker, small frig, hairdryer, air conditioning mounted fan but no microwave. It is clean. Cleaning staff is friendly. Pretty window boxes with red and white geraniums.
Great things about this place: It is 3 minutes to the beach on foot.
Convenience to the Rollover Cafe right next door for wraps, muffins, iced coffees and treats, an arcade across the street, a small gift store. a convenience store a few steps up the street that has trinkets and things you want to take to the ocean and some milk, beer, kites and such. A candy store is across the street where you can buy real nice chocolate $$, "penny candy for $10.49 per lb. and fancy loli pops, a boutique, tee shirt store, and an arcade which the teens love. There is a snack bar right at the ocean and a public bathroom, too. Billy Chowder House is a skip up the street and Hannaford's Market is too.
You can take the trolley which stops up the street- 2 minutes- to just about anywhere in the area.
Because the Ox Cart is part of Layfayette's Oceanfronts, you can use the pool in their main building up the street as well as anything else they offer there.
Great security on foot, on bikes and cruisers.
So, if you just don't want to drive all over the place; because Wells has alot to offer, but just want to chill out, this location offers everything you need. Just bring a cooler with some food and drinks and fill in the rest with your surroundings.
Wells Beach is lovely. Lots of family & children here. Looks pretty clean cut.

We stayed in the Ox Cart last week (July, 2014) and enjoyed it very much. The room was very clean, and the location to the beach was wonderful. We were within walking distance of the beach, but not ON the beach and paid a much lower price. Beautiful landscaping. The office staff could not have been more helpful.
