This is not a five stars hotel.But for familly vacation it is excellent for the price. Each cottage are different inside so choose wisely. Nice location, but don't expect a view. Close to everything, The trolley is a good option if you want to go to the Beach.

4 adult siblings and spouses surprised a 5th sibling and family by reserving cottages for part of their vacation. Cottages were all nice but we especially liked the larger #150 cottage. Staff was excellent, accommodations clean and welcoming and can't beat a Wells, ME location in the summertime!

We spent a week at the Watercress Cottages. It was clean and well cared for. The pool was a great place to relax, there was a playground for the kids, and it was a short drive to the beach, and other activities. I would definitely stay there again.
