The Southern Maine Coast: A Vacationer’s Paradise


The Cottages at Summer Village’s location in Wells puts it at the heart of the Southern Maine Coast. Miles and miles of sandy beaches, preserved coastal marshes and wetlands, hiking and biking trails and plenty of golf courses make the area a favorite with outdoor enthusiasts.

When in-town attractions beckon, residents and visitors can head right down Route 1 in Wells or Oqunquit to shop, dine, tour historic sites or enjoy a cultural event. The historic coastal towns of Kittery, The Yorks, Wells, Oqunquit, The Kennebunks and Old Orchard Beach offer a wide variety of shops, ranging from Kittery’s famous outlet malls to the more than 50 antique and rare book stores sprinkled throughout Wells.

The historic and cultural attractions of Portland, Maine and Portsmouth, New Hampshire are within easy reach for a casual trip. Guests who want to take longer adventures are ideally located for a day or overnight trip to New Hampshire’s White Mountains or Lakes Region, or Maine’s Acadia National Park.
