Another good time in Wells. We enjoy your cottages and have stayed with you several times.Your staff is so pleasant. See you next October

Nice to be back

by Andrew on 10/10/2022
We were very happy to be back at Cabin 160 after our first visit in 2017. The cabin immediately felt like home. Love the king size memory foam mattress. The pool and hot tub were open on the warmer days which was a nice surprise. Can’t wait to to return. A few things we thought were worth mentioning: - cabin cleanliness was a little wanting (carpet has a stain, were not any paring knives or large knives, had to buy oven cleaner as the oven was quite dirty and were worried about smoke, the barbecue was quite dirty but not sure if cleaner would do that?? - No recycling containers other than for can/bottle returns. Please note that we have our own Airbnb and are just letting you know so you can address issues for future guests. You can post review without the issues listed with our permission. Thank you Andrew & Spencer

Home away from home

by Dominic on 10/10/2022
We have stayed at the Water Crest for a fall vacation for over 35 years. We brought our girls there from the the years they were born. Now they vacation there with their families . Water Crest is in a great place for taking day trips. There’s lots of wonderful restaurants close by and is minutes from the beach. The pool and spa are an added benefit. I’m looking forward to our next visit.

Cabin review

by Judy on 10/08/2022
Overall, the cabin was nice. The futons mattress was too large for the frame, it was hard to sit on it. I enjoyed my stay there.

Water Crest Guest Review.

by Louis on 09/20/2022
Our stay at 135 was an excellent experience with the accommodations as well with the staff help. However, there may be a need to improve communications between cottage owners, Water Crest info flyers and staff. Regardless, our experience was quite satisfying and would certainly stay at Water Crest Cottages again and would recommend Water Crest to our friends. 


by Brian on 09/20/2022
We enjoyed our stay and the cottages are very nice, we would come back

Cute cabin

by Cheryl on 09/20/2022
We loved our stay at the cabin. Very close to everything. Came complete with everything we could have needed.

Great place to stay in Wells Maine

by Gregory on 09/19/2022
We have vacation in Maine for many years and Water Crest Cottages is conveniently located and a great place. This is not our first time staying in cottage 117, it is clean and nicely decorated. We would recommend Water Crest Cottages. we are planning on Vacationing again next year in Wells Maine and staying at Water Crest Cottages.

Thank you for an amazing stay.


by Daniel on 09/12/2022
We have been vacationing in Maine for about 35 years. Water Crest is on the top of our list for places to stay. The cottage was everything we wanted, the pool and hot tub are fantastic, the location is perfect, and the staff is great.....especially the manager, Cheryl. We will be back.

Another great stay!

by Sarah on 08/30/2022
We had another wonderful stay at the WaterCrest — cottage 115 is a lovely, updated unit that is comfortable, gives my family (husband, son and pup) plenty of room, and the enclosed porch is a favorite spot for relaxing and enjoying the breeze. The pool, grounds, etc are all maintained well and we can walk to great restaurants and the beach! We can’t wait to book for next year!


by Joan on 08/28/2022
Been here many times. The people are great. Love the area and the home is a delight to stay in. Looking forward to the next visit!

Cottage 105

by Rebecca on 08/15/2022
Cottage was very nicely decorated and comfortable. When we arrived it was very clean. Upon arrival air conditioning was on so it was nice and cool. Great location near the playset and basketball hoop. Everything you would need to have a great week. Beds were on slightly soft, but still comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Pool was warm and very close by and assigned parking in front of each cottage was wonderful. Overall, we had a great week and will be back again!

Another successful week

by Michael on 08/15/2022
Another great week in cottage 135. Cottage was nice pool was great all we can ask for. See you next year.

Clean, good location, comfy

Very clean, easy check in and out, a.c. cooled off the cottage,convenient to route 1

Comfortable and clean

by Ocean on 08/14/2022
The cottage was very comfortable with all the amenities provided. Felt very "homey". Only one small issue was that there was no hot water coming from the kitchen faucet. But other than that it was wonderful and we will return.

Truly pleased

by Edward on 08/12/2022
Our cottage was very nice. The office personnel were very friendly and the registration process was quick and efficient. The manager, Cheryl is great to work with. The grounds are clean and well kept and the pool area was great!

Beautiful cottage with all the amenities

Great stay once again. Looking forward to next year and already submitted our reservation request.

Rating our stay at watercrest

by Terry on 08/09/2022
We have been coming to Watercrest for almost 45 yrs.! We have stayed in many of your cottages. We found cottage 104 to be very comfortable. Out 2 sons and 5 grandchildren have spend every summer vacation there. We can see that many improvements have been made since last year. Thank you for making it the place we always want to come back to!


by Angela on 08/08/2022
We had a wonderful stay in Cottage 154 at Water Crest. Very clean and cozy. We hope to be back again next year!

Maine Vacation

by Jean on 08/08/2022
I spent a week in unit #151 July 30-August 6th. I love the location of the unit and it was neat and clean upon arrival.Having the pool, playground,and laundry on site is a huge benefit. I love the family atmosphere and the quiet hours. I will be back next year.

Great time as always

by Laura on 08/08/2022
We love staying at watercrest. The only complaint is the bed in the single room was horribly uncomfortable. We didn't sleep well at all. If a new mattress was put in or a wonderful mattress topper put on our stay would have been perfection

comments on 146

by Paula on 08/07/2022
A great cabin and very well stocked. We will request this one again! This was our 29th year taking our children and now our great grandchildren to Watercrest cottages. The rest of our family comes along most years and rent many cabins every year. This year we had 5. 146,147,149,114 and 136. All cabins were spotless and ready as promised. The housekeeping staff does an awesome job!!.. We Love Cheryl!!! While experiencing a health scare, she called me FROM HER HOSPITAL ROOM to resolve a small issue that easily could of waited. I wish I could remember the other staff members names but the office girl (was there Sat when we checked in at 3:30)..was awesome..very pleasant and efficient. The Maintenace man, who maintained the pool area was awesome as well. One of my nephews left his sandles at the pool and he kindly put them aside so they could be retrieved the next morning. May seem like a little thing but, my nephew only brought 1 pair of shoes (dumb teenager lol), so that could of caused a real inconvenience! Thanks so much to your entire staff!! Great job to Cheryl for her leadership of her crew.

New vacation spot

by Doreen on 08/04/2022
My family stayed at # 162. And loved it. Everything was there that we needed. All mattresses including sleep sofa mattress were so comfortable. Having two bathrooms worked out well. Place was spotless. Plan on returning to that u it time and time again. Also, patty in the office was so friendly!!!

by Rosemary on 08/03/2022
All I can say is our children are very fortunate! This is the second year we've rented 101 and it's difficult to offer any comments or feedback to improve our stay. It's a great gathering place for the family when we're renting other cottages so we appreciate this cottage especially. For the record, we are very appreciative of the office team who are always helpful and available. Thanks....

by Phyllis on 08/01/2022
We loved our vacation week at Water Crest cottage #154. Everything we needed was there. It would have been great to have more space in the kitchen for our purchased food. The cottage was clean and the porch was wonderful. As always the office staff was excellent. Thank you for a great week.

Wonderful week

by Phyllis on 07/30/2022
What a grand week!! The weather was great, the cottage was perfect and the office personnel were super! We have vacationed at WaterCrest Cottages for over 20 years and never have been disappointed. Thank you for another wonderful vacation.

We have always enjoyed our stay at Water Crest. We have been coming to this establishment for 29 years and we appreciate the opportunity. Thank you. The Kelley Family

Another Fabulous Stay at The WaterCrest!

by Mary on 07/25/2022
Our Unit 154 is our favorite of all 30 years coming up. 154 has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. The porch is our favorite gathering place to be with family and friends. The pool and hot tub were a perfect way to end our days after being at the beach. As always, Cheryl and the office staff are the bomb! They go out of their way to welcome all, and help with any problems or concerns. Kudos to Kristie and her cleaning team. The cottage always looks and smells fabulous upon arrival. Thank you Watercrest for another relaxing and fabulous stay!

We loved our stay at Watercrest Cottages. Our unit was absolutely perfect for us. I have already asked for rebooking next year, that will be our third year at Watercrest. Everything was perfect and the ladies in the office were amazing. We brought our dog which is so important to us and this was one of our best vacations. Love Watercrest and Wells! Can't wait to come back next year! Thank you so much.

Can't Wait to Come Back

by Shauna on 07/24/2022
Everything about our stay was great. The cottage was clean and cool from the moment we arrived, during the hottest week of the summer. We didn't have a single issue. Location was great, our kids loved the pool and playground and we especially enjoyed the hot tub. My only gripe is that I think owners should either have the option to add a small fire pit to enjoy or have a central fire pit.


by Joyce on 07/19/2022
We have been coming to Watercrest for over 10 years and have stayed in at least 5 different cottages. The office staff is great to work with and cottages are always clean. Each one a little different in its own way. Love coming every year. Going to the beach, out to eat, going to the pool and just relaxing at the cottage. Will definitely be back next year.


by Douglas on 07/18/2022
Cabin 108 was very clean and well-kept. Loved the porch!

The Best

by Jess on 07/17/2022
Perfect cabin for my family of 3. My 10 year old loves it there! Very neat, clean and full of everything we could possibly need

Another Wonderful Stay

by Beatrice on 07/17/2022
The entire family enjoyed another wonderful week at WaterCrest. Altogether we rented 7 different cottages. All of them very different but exactly what each of us needed. The office staff were excellent ! Friendly, prompt and very helpful! The pool and hot tub were kept in beautiful condition! We will be back! I only wish the association could approve use of the propane outdoor Fire pits. Even if they were owned by them and centrally located. A place to gather families in the evening. They are as safe as the propane grills. Just a suggestion. Thanks for a wonderful week with family!


by Timothy on 07/06/2022
We’ve stayed at a lot of different units but this one was our absolute favorite, we found it extremely clean well equipped and most importantly comfortable beds. This will absolutely be my first choice for all furniture vacations.


by Tina on 07/04/2022
We always love staying at water crest. My kids have enjoyed 154 since they were very little. The cottage is very comfortable and room for all 6 of us. We always love our time there and never want to leave. Thank you for such a fabulous place to vacation with the family

Great to come back !

Only recommendation I can make is to list whether units have fans and keurig coffee makers...which this unit did! But we had brought our own fans, so would have made the loading easier! We love Watercrest Cottages abs have never been disappointed!

This cottage was clean and fully stocked with accessories, the only trouble I had was figuring out how the tv worked in the living room. Enjoyed our stay.

Great Stay

by Janice on 06/24/2022
Place was so quaint. Spacious all around. Only thing I would say is the 1/2 bath hot water takes a few minutes to get hot. However, we were having plumbing problems but maintenance fixed it immediately. Definitely would stay again. Also parking can be tough when backing up your vehicle when there are more cars in parking lot. I highly recommend this cottage.

by Cindy on 06/18/2022
The cottage was clean and quiet. The only suggestion would be to supply more towels when people are staying for a week. Two towels in total for two people is not adequate.


by Natina on 06/14/2022
Unit #140 was very comfortable. had all the amenities we needed to enjoy our stay. the only thing we had a problem with was the TV - was unable to get traditional channels where we can see the local news and weather, etc...

Awesome unit!

by Jessica on 06/14/2022
This is our second year at Water Crest. This year we stayed with our 3year old and 2 month old. This unit was exceptionally clean and had everything we needed. It was super quiet in that neck of the woods, PERFECT location for a 3 year old with that playground! The cottage is super cute, the enclosed porch was perfect for morning coffee and eating. The only thing is I wish there were curtains in the bedrooms because it was super bright to sleep, we're used to dark rooms at home, difficult to get kids to bed but next time we will pack our travel blackout curtains. Great location to the best donuts and a few restaurants. We drove to the beach and to other restaurants. Great location, great unit. Definitely will come back!

Great time with friends

by Patricia on 06/13/2022
My college friends and I go to Wells to reunite each year. This was our first time at cottage 135. It was roomy and bright with room to relax, chat, and play cards. The front office personnel were helpful and very pleasant. At Water Crest you are close to everything and scenic drives are minutes away. We'll be back next year!

Great place:-)

by Robert on 06/13/2022
First off I'd like to say thank you too Patty and Cheryl in the front office they were both very personable and helpful. As far as hours today we had a wonderful time the cottage was excellent only extra amenities were great the cottage was spotless the pool it was extremely clean as well as the jacuzzi and the grounds. We will definitely be coming back again. Thank you the wonderful day.

Quite Pleasant

by Dennis & Linda on 05/30/2022
Our unit was very nice. Clean, neat, beautifully decorted. A huge improvement from the unit we stayed in last year. We definately would book this cottage again! Thanks.

We had a great stay at the Watercrest. We spent the weekend of Oct 15-17 2021. The cottage was so adorable, we will definitely be back. Great location close to everything, very clean and very friendly staff.

Great Cottage!

by Jamie on 10/12/2021
My husband and I have been coming to Wells for 6 years now to celebrate our Anniversary. We were looking for a new place to stay and found it with Watercrest Cottages. We stayed in cottage 122 and it’s the perfect amount of space for the two of us! This cottage had everything we needed which was awesome! We will definitely be staying with this cottage every Columbus weekend as long as it’s available! Can’t wait to head back next year.

Great place to stay!!!

This is our second time staying and we will return again!!! We enjoy it very much!! Always super clean!!

Great place to stay.

by Dawn on 09/26/2021
The suite we stayed in was just right for two and so well decorated with a seaside theme. The king size bed was so very comfortable that we woke each morning feeling well rested. The heated pool and spa are wonderful! Cheryl is an excellent manager and is very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Kristie was also very friendly and helpful with information of the Wells area. We look forward to staying at Water Crest again soon.

Very nice stay

by Joanne on 09/24/2021
We have stayed many times at the Watercrest and in many of your different cottages Every time has been a great experience! We especially love the individual cottage features and that we can bring our dog w us. Very clean and well kept cottages.


by Michelle on 09/22/2021
The cottage was very nicely decorated and equipped with just about everything.It even had a lot of packaged food items and a lot of spices.More than enough dishes and glasses and etc.I like the 2 sofa,s too.The small frig The on the porch was very helpful too.We also loved the floats for the pool too.

Cottage 152

by Carole on 09/13/2021
Only drawback was the trash removal at 6:00am on Friday morning. The facility should try to have the pick-up done at a later hour. Very loud!!!


by Sheila on 09/04/2021
The cottage was immaculate upon our arrival and stocked with everything you could possibly need for your stay. The staff was super friendly and helpful and I will definitely stay again in the future.


by Rhodora on 08/30/2021
Hands down one of the best vacation cottages we have ever stayed in. Very clean and well organized. Everything you could ever need was there including some thoughtful extras. This cottage will not disappoint. Thank you so much to the owners!!!

Our Happy Place!

by Amanda on 08/30/2021
We had such an enjoyable stay in watercrest's unit 152! The space had everything needed to be completely comfortable during our stay. Our kids loved hanging out at the cottage just as much as they liked going to the beach. We hope to return next year!

Relaxed retreat close to everything!

by Sarah on 08/30/2021
We stayed in unit 138 and enjoyed all the comforts of home with our 2 young girls! The kids loved the swings (just outside or cottage) and playing at the pirate ship playground. We enjoyed the screened in porch at night. Quick drive to the beach, grocery store or other nearby needs. Laundry was convenient but wish they had a coin machine onsite. Only other request would be a recycle bin in each cabin. We look forward to coming back!!

Loved our unit and Watercrest

by Richard on 08/29/2021
This was our 10th visit to Watercrest. We have stayed in many units and loved all of them. Unit 154 had 1 1/2 baths which was great for our family of 5. We'll be back next year.

As always our stay at the Watercrest Cottages was amazing. It was our first time staying in cottage 146 but it met all our expectations!Truly one of the only places for a large family to enjoy an affordable vacation.

Another Fabulous Get Away at Watercrest.

by Edward And Mary K. on 08/24/2021
Our goal was to get up to Maine and stay at our favorite location WaterCrest, 3x this summer. We met our goal, with our final stay this weekend in Unit 140. This is such a cute studio for a get away. The unit has everything you want and need for a long or short stay. I have said this before, and I'll repeat myself again by saying the reason Water Crest is so enjoyable is because of the people who work, own, and stay there. Cheryl, the Office Manager is the bomb, and always willing to do whatever it takes to enjoy your stay. We have stayed for 30 years at the Crest and seen many Office Managers come and go. Cheryl is by far the best! We hope she isn't going anywhere! Her cleaning crew is fabulous as well. Unit 140 is great for a couple wanting to kick back and relax. Can't wait to be back next season, and to set our goal for more than 3 visits! Thank you for the memories Water Crest.

All the staff was friendly our cottage was clean and perfect (we couldn't get on the wifi ). Thank you again to your staff for another amazing vacation. Robin Mayo and family

Another amazing stay at watercrest!

by Dorothy on 08/21/2021
Another perfect vacation here, very relaxing. We love to take our 13 year old grandson here as there are lots of kids for him to play with in the pool or on the basketball court. I love the fact that we don't need to leave to find things for us to do together here. Our cottage was very clean and the kitchen had everything we needed for preparing meals.

Great week at Wells, Me

by Joanne on 08/20/2021
This is our second time staying at Watercress, we have been coming to this area of Maine since 2008, love it here we've stayed in Kennebunkport, York, and went to Bar Harbor, and for three years Well's was our destination. I have to say Watercress by far is the best place to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The cottages are immaculate, stocked and close to everything you need from a market to take out. Best of all Dunkins is across the street. Will be back again.


by John on 08/17/2021

Everything was great. Our only complaint was the shower. Did not drain at all and taking a shower was not pleasant due to this fact.

Summer Vacation

by Jean on 08/09/2021
I have just returned home from my annual summer week in Maine at Watercrest cottage. Unit 151 was perfect, as always. Everything in the unit was clean and neat. Cleaning supplies provided, as well as Toilet Paper and Paper towels. I love having the laundry on site and the pool as well. I would recommend the pool hours follow the times listed at check in. One evening, at 8:45 PM my so was told the pool and hot tub were closed. I am sure having to lock the pool gates is an additional chore later in the evening, but guests expect the pool and hot tub to be available until 9:00pm. I would highly recommend Watercrest to anyone looking for a stay in the Wells area. See you next year.


by Edward on 08/07/2021
We have very much enjoyed our stay. The cottage was very clean when we arrived. Tom, the maintenance man is friendly and courteous. The manager, Cheryl has been very helpful and professional.

Perfect for us!

The cottage was just the perfect size for my girlfriend and our two families. Clean and convenient location to the playground. Cute beach decor and a nice deck and screened porch to relax on. Will definitely be back next summer!

by Sarah on 08/04/2021
Only thing I would recommend for the cottage we stayed in is to have some storage where you can keep food. Kitchen cabinets were full. We ended up buying a laundry basket and keeping the dry storage in that. Other than that the cottage was perfect. Thank you for a much needed vacation.


by Rosemary on 08/04/2021
Although I wasn't initially pleased with the location, close to the road, it is an outstanding cabin and it accommodated our family nicely when we gathered as a group. We really enjoyed the assistance provided by the team in the office, they were great and knowledgeable.

We have been to Watercrest for over 15 years and have stayed in 13 different cottages. Each one is special. We love our time especially in number 103. We look toward to coming next year already. The staff is superb. Very accommodating and friendly. Very clean unit with everything you need. Thank you. Russ and Phyllis Clark

We reserved three cottages 106/109/101....106 was very pleasant and our family enjoyed their time there. All is good.

Our stay

by Peter on 07/31/2021
We have been coming to Watercrest Cottages for 27 years. We always enjoy our stay. We are hopeful that the cabin reservation process will be less confusing in 2022. We look forward to our next visit. We wish the laundry room would open at 7:00 as it did in the past. Again though, overall, a wonderful experience and we do look forward to our visit next year.


by Erin on 07/30/2021
Management went above and beyond we arrived early they made sure our cottage was cleaned first and contact us when the cottage was ready. The cottage was clean and when a concern came up it was taken care of immediately. In years past we were able to do laundry after arriving back to the cottage late to dry our beach gear and this year that wasn’t available which was disappointing but other wise an amazing stay.

Always a Fabulous stay at The WaterCrest

by Mary Kay on 07/28/2021
Over the past 30 years of staying at Watercrest this was one of the most memorable! We were placed in a new cabin( as our old cottages and many before that are no longer renting out due to the owners living/staying in them). Who would blame them they are all great cottages! We fell in love with our new cottage and hope to return to it next year, for the same week if allowed by the management. The new management is doing it differently from the past 29 years. In the past, if you had the cabin that you were in for the present year, the same week the following year you had first dibs on it. The management feels it should be first come first serve which isn't in my opinion the best policy because you potentially could be knocked out of your cabin every year! With this being said, I sat and had several, lengthy conversations with the Property manager, who is a gem, and heard where I was coming from. Regardless you can't go wrong with spending your days, weeks, or weeks at The Watercrest Cottages. The property is kid friendly, great pool and spa, on site laundry, and again the nicest office staff around. Thanks for another great year!

Excellent location, friendly staff and residents!

What a great place

by Dave on 07/26/2021
My family and I rented several cottages at watercrest & had a wonderful time. We got to bring our dogs & relax. The staff here is amazing, the cottages and grounds are super clean and everything was great. Thank you

Our vacation time at Watercrest

by Joyce on 07/23/2021
As always we had a terrific time this year. Cottage was very clean and comfortable. Pool area and pool were clean. The only complaint was the mosquitos were terrible and after speaking with someone at the office I learned they are having trouble getting service people to respond. This is understandable after the pandemic last year getting things back to normal and finding help. Still is my favorite place to be

Really Nice Large Unit

by Patricia on 07/21/2021
This cottage is really nice and has plenty of room and great open concept for living, dining rooms and kitchen. It has a very convenient 1/2 bath in addition to the full bath which serves both bedrooms. The porch is large, has plenty of windows which give a nice cross breeze from the front door of the cottage and we like the rocking chairs out there. The kitchen has plenty of utensils and cooking pans, with a dishwasher, toaster and coffee pot as well. It is also close to the office and the laundry room. This is the second time we have stayed in this cottage and we were very comfortable there yet again!

Another great vacation!!

by Ann on 07/21/2021
My daughter and 3 grandchildren have been vacationing at Water Crest Cottage's for the past 8 years.The last 4 years have been in cottage 104, which we love . It truly feels like home with all the comforts.The stove was not working when we arrived and the replacement stove was not able to be delivered until mid week. Cheryl ,the office manager ,was wonderful in making sure everything was taken care of and could not have been more understanding.The owner was so thoughtful she left us a gift certificate for the near by Steak House.. Cheryl is an amazing manager and it was great to know she is always there to help.

Review of cottage 151

by Richard & Linda on 07/18/2021
We loved the cottage.it was nice and spacious. Comfortable furniture and bed.we were thankful the air conditioning unit provided heat as well as air for those wet chilly days. We did have an issue with ants during our second week coming up between the stove and conter. The stove itself was clean but the over was not.we tried to use it but it smoked terribly. It needs a thorough cleaning. Everything else was great and we would definitely request this unit again.

Summer vacation

by Cathy on 07/17/2021
Cottage was very well decorated and roomy. Plenty of supplies. The kitchen was equipped with everything you need. Clean. There were a few items that needed repair which my husband brought to the of the office when we arrived. There was an issue with hot water running out but maintenance was able to fix. I would recommend a different mattress or topper for queen bed as it was too soft for my liking. It was a relaxing vacation despite all the rain and only 2 days of sun. I would rent it again

Above Average

by Beatrice on 07/13/2021
We loved our cottage. The front office was very pleasant and helpful! The pool temp was perfect. It could have used a little maintenance however. It was very cloudy and the kids found several large clumps of hair. Had the pool been shocked at night this would have been easy to see and rectify. We really enjoyed our stay.

by Denise on 07/10/2021
We have been coming for around 26 years - the start of the year I always call to verify that we are set for the new year - when I did this they confirmed all of our cabins and the date - Found out in Late February that cabin 135 was the only one that was still booked for our family - After many calls they were able to get cabins for all of my family members - this was very stressful - very glad to see that now it looks like your new manager has things more organized we again booked for next year and I again will call in January to verify cabins for LaFond (2) - Bruckerhoff (2)- Markowski - Stannard and hopefully Seely (from CO) Hope you have a wonderful Summer with bookings and look forward to coming again next year - I did hear you were looking at maybe a family spot with a fire pit that would be wonderful and all family's could join in


by Khristina on 07/08/2021
The grounds were great staff was fantastic but the unit we had was fair at best. The ac doesn't work, beds were terrible. We will return but definitely not to that unit. TY

Awesome Cottage

by Andrea on 07/06/2021
Our cottage and stay were both fantastic. Everything we needed was there for us. Our favorite part of our cottage was the sun room, it was a great place to hang out and dine. We had great neighbors and look forward to going back next year.

Wonderful cottage!

by Jennifer on 06/26/2021
We loved our stay at Water Crest! The cottage was roomy enough for us, and was well equipped, clean, and nicely decorated. We enjoyed the heated pool, shuffleboard, and playground equipment. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Great Time

by Chelsea on 06/26/2021
Our stay was great. We had an awesome time in 101! The check in/ check out process was quick and easy. The front desk ladies were very friendly and welcoming. The only big complaint we had was about the beds. They were very used and uncomfortable. Other than that we would love to book 101 for our next vacation!


by Shaun on 06/23/2021
This place is absolutely perfect. We stayed in unit 108. When we arrived the AC was on and was spotless. So clean! It had everything we needed and was extremely comfortable for our family. Really the perfect place if you have a small family. We will be back

Wonderful cottage!

by Trisha on 06/19/2021
Our stay was great! The cottage was very comfortable and had absolutely everything you would need for a comfortable vacation- all essential amenities were provided and whatever extras we needed were a short drive down the road to a variety of stores. The rented linen option was convenient. The cottage was extremely clean. We loved the sun porch and our close proximity to the pool, but we still had privacy. The staff was very friendly and accommodating also! Thanks so much for helping us enjoy a safe and fun visit- we really appreciated it!

by Lauren on 06/17/2021
Words can not describe this cottage. Absolutely beautiful and well stocked with everything you could possibly need. We had an issue with the tv and the office staff was excellent in handling the problem and the owner brought a brand new tv immediately. There were installation complications and we were compensated for our inconvience. I have been staying here for over 30 years and this is the best place in Wells in my opinion. Can't wait to return.

Once again, we enjoyed our stay at Water Crest. The cottage is warm and inviting and has begun to feel like home. When the hot water stopped, Shannon efficiently got the problem fixed. She is an exceptional customer service person; her smile and genuine concern were greatly appreciated. Thank you, Peggy, for the gift card. If the shower had more pressure and went into the middle of the tub, it would be perfect. Water Crest is a wonderful place to vacation. Thank you

Weekend stay

by Tabitha on 06/16/2021
This was a beautiful cottage. Very close to all things fun in Maine. The office staff was very friendly. Thank you to Kayla who carried to check on us and let us know that traffic was thick when we were traveling. We hope to stay with you again in 2022


by Erin on 06/10/2021
I would suggest that another portable heater for the master bedroom. We were able to borrow one from another owner. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed having the 2 large bedrooms with private baths!! We enjoyed grilling in the back as it was more private a picnic table back there would also be a great idea as it is private back there. We will back next year for sure!!! This cottage met all our needs more than we even imagined!!

by Mary on 10/18/2020
We enjoyed our stay once again. The staff are friendly and accommodating We recommend staying here to our friends.

Perfect place

by Dominic on 10/02/2020
I have been coming to the Wells area in September and October with my wife and children for the past 35 years. We have stayed in several different places before trying Water Crest Cottages. The Water Crest has been our vacation spot for the last 20 years. We stayed in many of the different cottages as our needs changed. The Water Crest is close to many terrific restaurants and allows for at home dining as well with kitchens and bbq grills. You are two minutes from the beautiful Wells Beach. For the dog lover, many cottages are pet friendly. We also enjoy the hot tub and heated pool. I can't see staying anywhere else.


by Rita on 09/29/2020
We love out cottage. Bright, cozy, clean and well stocked. We have been coming to Watercrest Cottages for a few years and have enjoyed our stay in Wells, Maine. We will be coming back every year. Thank you for a wonderful vacation.


by Stephanie on 09/13/2020
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at your cottage. The beds were very comfortable, kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to cook with and the living room was very comfortable with the furniture. We would definitely stay there again. Thank you.

Excellent Stay

by Jacqueline on 09/11/2020
Our most recent stay at Watercrest in Unit 122 was great! We also stayed in the same unit last year for several days & it was perfect. The cottage was very clean upon arrival & had all the amenities we needed. We really live that we can also bring our dogs, this is a huge plus for us! The pool & hot tub, and basketball court were great also. Very well maintained & will definitely be staying here again Jacqui & Dave , Boston , Ma

Wonderful stay!

by Mary Beth on 09/04/2020
Exceptionally clean. Staff were friendly and attentive. Great location. Highly recommended!

Perfect Experience

by Sarah on 09/02/2020
We are a family of four with a dog. We have never stayed at WaterCrest before and we were ended up having just the greatest time! The unit was super clean and it had a three seasons room, which was such a great sitting area. The unit had everything you needed, it was right next to the best eateries, and just minutes from the beach. It was quiet at night, which is a huge plus in my book when I have young children trying to sleep. The kids parks were a lot of fun, the pool was in excellent condition, and the grounds were clean. Most importantly, though, were the owners and staff. They all truly care about your experience and are super nice.

Water Crest cottages and motel

by Jill on 09/02/2020
We were there for 3 nights in Aug 2020. Very cute and clean cottage. Had everything we needed. Managers very responsible and helpful.would definitely go back!

2020 Mayo family vacation

by Robin on 09/01/2020
Cottage 133 was perfect for my family and you letting us have day visits. Our mom passed away May 6th from covid she loved Wells beach we have been going for at least 40 years. She loved lighthouse so 133 was perfect hopefully we will see you next year. Thank you for everything

Lovely cottage!

by Jessica on 08/27/2020
This is our second year staying here and it is wonderful! The cabin is roomy and fully furnished with all the kitchen equipment you need. The extra bathroom was appreciated and our youngest family member, age 3 ½, loved all the kid's games and books that were there as well as the pirate ship playhouse. It is clean, quiet and welcoming and the pool is just right. One of the best places we've stayed at. Our family is so grateful to be able to come despite the COVID and appreciate the safety measures that were in place. We hope to come back every year (our little girl is already asking to go back to the cabin!)


by Tina on 08/26/2020
We always have an amazing time at Watercrest. It's the perfect location for our family!

Just like home

by Ann on 08/14/2020
We have been coming to WaterCrest Cottages for the past six years for a week in August. The cottage is extremely comfortable ,clean with full amenities. The location Is convenient if you want to travel to Kennebunkport or Ogunquit . The beaches nearby are absolutely beautiful and if you just want to relax the pool and hot tub are fabulous!

Loved cottage 117

by Lisa on 08/13/2020
Stayed in Watercrest for over 20 years and I have got to say the improvements they have done in cottage 117 make it an adorable Maine beach vacation cottage. The little touches were really appreciated by and my family and I -from the Driftwood by the front door to the little buckets of seashells for doorstops this place really made you feel like you were on vacation! We will definitely return and when we do if at all possible we will stay at cottage 117, just adorable!!!

Another great vacation at WC

by Michael on 08/12/2020
Another great time at WC. Was a bit quiet with the pandemic and all but was a great time. Cottage super clean upon entering. Filled out our card to come next year already will be our 13 year. Thanks

Fun family vacation

by Kerri on 08/10/2020
Cottage was adorable! Fully equipped kitchen and an outdoor grill. Awesome screened porch to have your morning coffee or game night. The pool was nicely maintained and not crowded. We are already planning next summer's vacation at Watercrest!

cottage 152

by Janet on 08/09/2020
We've stayed as guests in this unit several times prior to this year. This year, as in the past, we found it to be very well maintained, perfect amenities, great colors and decorations. It provides for a very comfortable, relaxing place while vacationing.

Fabulous week...as always

by Jean on 08/07/2020
A fabulous week, as always, at Watercrest. Check in was easy, and our Cottage was spotless. Despite the Pandemic, it was one of our best vacations ever. All guests were great about social distance and the pool was very easy to access and use. See you next year!


by Phyllis And Russ on 08/05/2020
Cottage 103 was perfect for our family. It had everything we needed to enjoy another beautiful week. WatercRess has never failed us. We have rented many cottages there in the 12 years we have Been coming. Management is terrific. Thank you for a great week.


by Debra on 08/02/2020
I have stayed with you in past years while my family is vacationing with you. They rent a cottage every year at the same time for a week with you from out-of-state. I live here in Maine and come for a couple of nights to visit them while they're on vacation. I've stayed in Rooms 123 and 124, but this was the first time in your office bldg. at Studio 140. It was such a pleasantly beautiful and comfortable room. As always, I had a wonderful couple of days stay at your property. I will be back again sometime!!

A wonderful visit!

by Rachel on 07/31/2020
We had a great stay in Unit 149. This was our second time at Watercrest, first time in this unit. It was spacious, clean, well-stocked, and comfortable. So much better than staying in a standard motel. Staff were very nice and helpful. Because the trolleys were not running this year due to Covid we did drive to the beach, but parking was manageable. Guests in 2020 note you need to bring all your own bedding and towels - we didn't bring hand or bath towels and had to get creative! See you next summer!

Great Cottage

by Kim on 07/19/2020
Great cottage had a good time only thing I suggest is a fan in bathroom it gets very hot in there after showering Stayed at a few different cottages over the years all great and so is Water Crest staff See you next year

Fantastic Stay!

by Deborah on 07/08/2020
We had a great week except we could have used more sunny beach days! Cottage was perfect - comfy beds, comfy living room furniture. Enough space for the 6 of us. Nicely decorated without too many breakables. Could use a few hooks/ shelves to put extra towels/ toiletries. Plenty of nice utensils/pans/ dishes and nice sized porch. We will be back next year!


by Amy on 07/08/2020
We absolutely loved this cottage. It was perfect and had everything we needed! Our stay was wonderful as it is every year. Thank you!

Had a great time. Two daughters and their husbands also had two other accomodations couple units down. Beautiful bathroom, comfy chairs, well supplied. Pool and hot tub great as well and shoutout to the Maintenance people as well. This was our first time in Wells; plan on returning to Water Crest next year.

Another wonder week at the Water Crest

by Dominic on 10/02/2019
We have been staying at the Water Crest every fall since 1990. Now our daughters vacation there with their families. Friends of ours now vacation there also. We have stayed in many of the cabins over the years. The cabins are clean and comfortable. The staff is attentive and friendly. Having the hot tub and pool are a wonderful extra. We can't wait until our next stay.

Wonderful stay!

by Jessica on 10/01/2019
What a lovely cabin! Plenty of room for 4 people. Immaculately clean with all sorts of amenities including some surprise extras such as beach gear, games and toys (my toddler was overjoyed!) and lots of kitchen equipment. There was even a clothesline on the enclosed porch. I love the nice warm pool and hot tub! The only thing I would change is to be very clear on the web site that linens and towels are not included but can be rented for a fee. We were unaware of this after making reservations on line so the first night had to sleep on top of the duvet! Other than that, this is a quiet, family friendly place, we would happily stay here again! Thank you

Cottage 135

by Art on 09/27/2019
Cottage was clean and roomy while also including some unexpected provisions such as paper products, and trash bags. Location within the park lacks privacy as it is positioned off the exit road and adjacent to the pool area. Pool lighting and groups at the pool or hot tub can be distracting in the evening if quiet or private is your objective. Would recommend cottage 143 for this purpose. Grounds are well maintained and staff very kind and accommodating with approval of late check out.


by Todd on 09/25/2019
Always love the cottage


by Jeffrey on 09/23/2019
We have been staying at Watercrest for about 8 years and live it! Everyone is very friendly and helpful. The cottages are clean and well stocked.

Best cabin ever

by Robert & Wendy on 09/22/2019
Stayed in cabin 122. Enjoyed everything about it. Kitchen well stocked! We brought our own coffee pot and towels, not realizing they were with the cabin. We used our own! our little yorkie made herself right at home! i would recommend cabin 122 and look forward to returning again! Its small but big enough for my husband and yorkie! Enjoyed having coffee and breakfast on the porch! Will be returning! Thank you!!

I am happy that everything is explained for every procedure.

My Vaction 2019

by Cheryl on 09/17/2019
Had a wonderful time. Unit 137 is very cozy. The unit is very well kept up, clean. Everything we needed was in there a large pot for boiling corn, Frying pans, the outside grill was huge, and most important of all the blender for those frozen drinks. We attracted a small group of people one night as we were making homemade Italian gravy with meatballs , and the smell wafted outside the cottage , we now have a few fans lol asking if we are coming back next year. The only suggestion I have is for the bathroom. The tub and shower are great plenty of room, however its a big step in and out. Perhaps a bar on the wall to assist people who may not be so steady on their feet. My dog Bandit felt right at home here. He gives the Unit 4 paws up for a score!!. Hope to return next year. Thank you for everything. Cheryl 🙂

It was perfect!

by Rosanna on 09/11/2019
We truly enjoyed our stay at cottage 152. It was perfect for our needs. The cottage was clean, well appointed, and had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend. I'm sure we will be coming back again.

Très confortable et propre.

Short but Sweet

by Richard & Bonnie on 09/06/2019
We stayed in Cottage159 recently. The cottage was very sweet, clean and just the right size for the two of us. Our stay was supposed to be a week, however, we had something come up and could only stay for the end of the week. Christie was just great walking us through a very late arrival among other issues. We were able to rest and relax. We really enjoyed the porch/deck. Just to sit and chat and read was a blessing. I would definitely suggest Water Crest to family and friends. Excellent customer care and satisfaction, clean cottage, and overall lovely stay. Thank you Christie at the front desk, and Thank you Water Crest for a quiet and much needed peaceful holiday time.


by Karen on 09/06/2019
Everything was GREAT ~~~ MINUS (and this has NOTHING to do with WCC), our non animal lover in cottage 145 that came on August 28th!!! That man was MEAN. The rest of our stay was perfect. The cottage was perfect. The location of the cottage was perfect!! Just the owner of 145 was an issue (he did NOT like my "friendly" dog).


by Theresa on 09/04/2019
Great cottage; excellent shape. Will request next year


by Sarah on 09/03/2019
We loved the cottage and the grounds. We enjoyed our stay and will be back!

Best Stay in Maine Yet!

by Nancy on 09/01/2019
So glad the place down the road was rigid with their Saturday to Saturday policy! Not only did you accommodate our start and stop times, but the place was spacious, clean and so comfortable! The pool was a big hit with the family because it was so warm and clean! Needed to do a load of wash in your super clean laundry area. Now, if we could just find my husband's glasses. See you next year!

by Joseph F Jr on 08/24/2019
I knew it was going to be a pleasant stay when I was greeted by 2 wonderful people at the front desk in Maddie and Christie. These 2 professionals were both friendly and professional. They answered all questions and also gave me a great recommendation for dinner! I was on business and traveling alone but they treated me like I was a family of 5 on a weeks vacation.! My room was cool down when I checked in. It was very clean and had everything I needed. When business calls for me to be back in Southern Maine, you can bet I will stay here !

Our stay in 103

by Shirley on 08/21/2019
We had a very good time during our stay in 103 at Water Crest! It was very homey! We found that the beds were very comfortable, and we found that the kitchen had everything we needed~ Including a dishwasher! The gas grill, we think, is pretty tired and should be replaced. We were thankful that we didn’t plan to use it extensively! The pool and hot tub were awesome, and the ocean is a short drive away. We will definitely visit again!!)

Wonderful Cottage

by Katie on 08/20/2019
Had a great stay with my family in cottage 150. Loved the privacy in the back of the property and it was still only a 5 minute walk to the pool. The cottage itself was spacious due to the 3 season porch. It was great having a dining room table that all six of us could eat at. Kitchen is small but we had everything we needed and utilized the grille. Overall a wonderful vacation spot.

Unit 134

by Tracey on 08/18/2019
My family of 7 enjoyed our stay in cottage 134. It was large enough for all of us, clean and surprisingly quiet. We did some have some issues with the cable, and not knowing how to work the television in the bedrooms. Written instructions would be very helpful in that regard. Also, I feel like the unit could have new warm blankets. The ones that are there are very old, have holes in them and are scratchy. Aside from these 2 things, we would definitely return for another visit. In fact, we are already talking about visiting next year. I think we have found our new preferred vacation place. Thank you again.


by Jeff on 08/18/2019
We had a nice stay, I was hoping for more of an ocean view (as indicated in the ad for cabin 147) but otherwise everything was perfect..

Have stayed in this unit for the past 6 seasons. Always very clean and quiet, like the new front/back decks. Did leave a short list of items needing attention, nothing major but would make 159 even better. See you next August !


by Jean-Pierre on 08/17/2019
Everyone loved the cottage and the pool. Very quiet and clean. We also liked the decoration of the cottage and how personalized it was. The only thing missing was a pantry or a place to store our food. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.

This cottage is well-equipped, beautifully decorated, and located close to all amenities and many beaches. We also enjoyed the pool, hot tub, laundry facilities, and BBQ. Thanks for another super fun holiday stay!

Positive on 105

by Kim on 08/15/2019
Our visit was great from a rapid checkin to our checkout 2 weeks later. The cabin (#105) had been refurbished and was clean and as comfortable as home! We love it there. However, 1 big issue is that 1 of the weeks we always take was given to someone else without checking to see if we wanted it. We always use the 2 weeks and this is very upsetting and needs to be corrected!! We should have first right of refusal as it always has been. Please correct this issue as soon as possible so that we can have the 2 weeks we always have! Thank you!

We have been going to Watercrest for a few years and love it. The place we stayed this year was great, perfect for our family. We will definitely be back again next year.

by Lisa on 08/14/2019
This is the first time I have stayed in this unit. The one I usually stay with doesn't appear to being rented any longer. This cabin was perfect for me. It was very clean and had everything that I needed. I loved the rocking chair on the little porch. I spent a lot of time reading there. Everything worked great. I didn't realize that it was pet friendly but you would never know it at all, so I was relieved about that. I will definitely return to this cabin! My only complaint - and not related to this cabin in particular - is that the cancellation rules are way too strict compared to what I am used to at other rental locations.

Great vacations....

by Marc on 08/14/2019
Nice place to stay, we go every year at the Watercrest and it's always amazing. The sofa bed in thi unit need to be replaced tough,,,

Cottsge 108

by Christine on 08/13/2019
We stay at Water Crest every year! We love the cottages as our needs change with the Grandkids we have changed cottages each year. Cottage 108 was great to stay in. No problems except the fire alarm went off a couple of times while cooking. Staff is always friendly at check in and check out! !08 was clean and well stocked with what we would need during our stay!

Home away from Home

by Elizabeth on 08/11/2019
This cottage has everything that you could possibly need. I was able to use the free on demand on the TV’s. It has a dishwasher and a large screened in porch area with a clothes line. This made rinsing and hanging up bathing suits a breeze. Loved the location of the cottage, very private spot and close to the office as well if assistance were to be needed. The cottage was very clean upon arrival. It is also wheelchair accessible which makes it very roomy and very livable for an extended stay! Highly recommend this cottage!

Summer vacation

by Jean on 08/07/2019
Our annual summer vacation begins and ends at Watercrest Cottage #151. Cottage is ready and waiting for our arrival. Check in was a breeze. Cottage was clean and ice cubes in the freezer. Great location and the pool and laundry facilities make it perfect for us.

Once again, completely satisfied

by Melissa on 08/07/2019
We’ve been staying at The Watercrest for years. We love the location, the cottages are always extremely clean, as is the pool. This year we brought friends with us and they too were very impressed. Thanks Watercrest for another fabulous time!

Wonderful stay at #103

by Phyllis on 08/07/2019
What a great vacation in #103 cottage. Everything was so clean and ready. The door to the second bedroom was off track and wouldn't close properly but I reported it immediately. Staff is so accommodation, nice, and helpful. New management is great. Beautiful weather, cottage, and beach/pool. Russ and Phyllis Clark

Excellent Stay

by Mary on 08/06/2019
We enjoyed our stay at Water Crest. The cottage was clean and there was plenty of room for 3 adults and one small dog. The pool and hot tub were clean and we used them often. Water Crest is so close to everything. There is so much to do, we may have to book two weeks next year!


by Chloé on 08/05/2019
We have a verry nice stay at our cottage 152. The cottage is clean, great location on the site, we were with our 2 kids, we really enjoy it. Everything was perfect, except that we couldn't have firepit on the site.


by Erin on 08/04/2019
As always had a great time at the water crest. The cottage was clean and spacious and would rent again. The children enjoyed the smart tv and were able to watch Netflix, which was a blessing on our rainy day.

Above Average

by Karen on 08/04/2019
enjoyed stay. we had an ant problem but response was fast. cottage was in good shape when we got there

Best customer service

by Phyllis on 08/01/2019
Always very accommodating. Love our stay.

Formidable chalet

by Martin on 07/30/2019
Nous avons passé une formidable semaine dans le chalet 150. Il avait tout l'équipement nécessaire, un BBQ neuf, toute l'équipement pour nous faire du homard. La climatisation est excellente. Les lits étaient très confortable. Nous étions 8 et nous étions très bien. Personne ne se pilait sur les pieds. À notre arrivé, le chalet est propre. Pour ce qui est de l'emplacement, nous avions beaucoup de place pour nos voitures. Le seul point un peu négatif est la vue sur un pick de sable. La piscine est bien et les jeux d'enfants sont bien. Je vous le conseil!

Adorable Cottage

by Dawn on 07/29/2019
Loved this little cottage-especially the lovely porch. Perfect getaway to just sit and relax!!


by Jean on 07/24/2019
we spend a very nice week, the cottage was in excellent condition and what we appreciate the most being near the pool it was quiet most of the time .We are planning to rent the same cottage but we have to know the time of their vacation .See you next year if possible


by Suzanne on 07/24/2019
This was our second year staying in cottage 117. We have stayed in other cottages at Watercrest, but enjoy the location and the decor of cottage 117. On our second day, we had planned to grill our dinner, but the grill was not working. We informed the office and they tried to fix it, but instead, we were surprised with a brand new grill! That was impressive! Thank you, Watercrest, for helping us to have a wonderful vacation!

Vacation at Watercrest, Wells Maine

by Joyce on 07/24/2019
We have been coming to Watercrest for 8 years. It is the perfect place for a family vacation. Close to the beach, restaurants, shopping. Cottages are clean and have everything you need. The pool is a nice place to relax for a few hours.

great vacation

by Edward on 07/23/2019
we enjoyed our vacation with u the cottage was very clean and well stocked the grounds were well maintained and guests were respectfull the only thing that I wasn't crazy about was the large table on the porch I would prefer a small table and some chairs other wise it is a great place to stay

Quiet Retreat

by Robert on 07/23/2019
Very, very clean cottage; a comfortable and peaceful visit. Front office staff friendly and helpful. There is no phone in cottage - bring your cell phone if you have a need to be connected to the outside world. WiFi is available. For the elderly would like to see a safety grab bar in tub. We will definitely stay again.


by StéPhane on 07/23/2019
Nous avons adoré notre expérience. Nous aurions peut-être apprécié que la pelouse soit tondue en après-midi ou au moins après 10h00. Merci beaucoup et à la prochaine.

We loved our experience. We would have perhaps appreciated that the lawn was mowed in the afternoon or at least after 10:00. Thank you very much and see you next time


by David on 07/23/2019
We had a great time. The cottage was excellent, and the staff was first rate! Thanks so much!

Enjoyed our stay!

by Jill on 07/18/2019
The house is terrific, the office staff was very friendly, the kids loved the pool and basketball hoop. We're looking forward to another stay at WaterCrest!


by Stacey on 07/17/2019
Unit was very comfortable and well maintained, perfect for what my family needed! It was our first trip to Maine and we are already planning a trip next year and hope to rent the same cottage! The only update I would suggest is a newer microwave and toaster, but other than that we absolutely loved it!

Poppy Sea

by Joanne on 07/17/2019
We have stayed at cabin 104 the Poppy Sea several times and it never disappoints.


by Therese & Maurice Nadeau on 07/16/2019
Everything was perfect,unit #147 is very nice . Ann+Madison are very professional . Keep up the good work ! See you in September . Marc,Isabelle,Thérèse,Maurice

Fantastic Vacation

by Nicole on 07/16/2019
We knew the week was going to be great when on our first day we saw a double rainbow while swimming in the pool. Our cottage was perfect and had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable and we loved the fact that we could bring our dog. The linen package was great for the price and had plenty of everything. The location can't be beat it is so close to everything. We will be back!

Simple cottage with all the amenities.

by Tara on 07/13/2019
My family and I had a great stay here. The cottage was sweet but also spacious and we loved having a playground within view and a pool right near us, too. The trolley stop was conveniently located right at watercrest entrance sowe took it to dinner and once tothe beach. My only small complaint is that there were employees painting a picnic table next to us every day when we got home from the beach. The oil smelled really bad and we had to stay inside or go over to the pool. Also I kind of wish the two neighbors were blocked off with bushes or a nice fence ( the ugly warehouses and the dump trucks etc). But honestly I regret not booking a full week!

Wonderful cottage!

by Sarah on 07/12/2019
Cottage 115 was lovely - it was updated, bright and immaculately clean; the pictures online don't do it justice! It was the perfect space for our family of three and pup! The sunroom/porch area was our favorite place to relax and unwind - with the windows open it got a great breeze!


by Cylas on 07/10/2019
Great place to stay and pet friendly!


by Linda on 07/08/2019
The cottage was clean,well taken care of, we hope to be able to book again next year. My son and his family had this cabin and were very pleased with it.

Beautiful cottage

by Shawn on 07/03/2019
As usual, we had a fantastic time staying at Watercrest. This was our 1st time staying in Cottage 143 & we were thrilled with the cleanliness & vast amount of space this cottage offered. The enclosed porch basically doubles the size of the cottage & gave me a place to watch TV while the kids played their Xbox on the living room tv. I would definitely pick this cottage again if available for next year's family vacation.

Cottage 143 is for me!

by Debra on 06/27/2019
Cottage was clean and smelled great upon arrival. Everything you could want in a home away from home. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. Plenty of space and seating to entertain. We had 8 adults and 5 kids visiting one evening with no issues. Even has a stereo! Maine station 100.9 is great! Loved that the cottage had some little extras: 2 beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach blanket, 2 boogy boards, sand toys, clothes drying rack. If you choose to bring you own linens don’t forget hand towels and a sponge for dishes. Would love if the pool had a bathroom near it so you didn’t have to walk back to the cottage. Wish we remembered cooking spray, salt, pepper, sugar, coffee filters, paper plates. Most of which we were able to borrow from friends in other cottages. Definitely recommend this cottage set off in the back of the property. Very quiet!

Outstanding Cottage

by Greg on 06/26/2019
The cottage we stayed at was very clean and extremely well cared for. We have always had good experiences at Water Crest. Ann was more than helpful.


by Francois on 06/26/2019
The unit was very clean and comfortable. The staff was nice. The place is near groceries, restaurants, etc.

Thank you

by Sarah on 06/19/2019
We had a wonderful stay at watercrest. It was clean, quiet, a great location, and a beautiful stay. Can't sayx enough good things about our experience. Thank you!

Great escape

by Natina on 06/12/2019
beautiful cottage, with a nice decor (i love lighthouses ) very clean kitchen is full equipped and more. will surely return to this cottage if available in the near future


by Herbert on 06/10/2019
We had a wonderful 4 days

Another great week!

by Mary on 06/06/2019
We've lost track of how many years we've stayed at WC 101! We, as always, enjoyed our time in Maine. The cottage was clean and neat. The linens were wonderful! We are thankful for the no slip bathroom rug and tub liner. The HD TV was welcome. New beds and a recliner were very appreciated! Biggest on our wish list would be a new sleeper sofa. Next, a microwave that pops popcorn would be nice, and finally a different tablecloth!! We love our little cottage away from home and look forward to coming again next year.

Clean Cottage

by Casey on 07/05/2018
My family of 6 stayed in cottage 135. We found it to be very clean and spacious. This was our second time in this cottage and third time at the WaterCrest. The location is convenient to all beaches and attractions, and has a nice pool and playground for the kids. We will definitely be back again!

Above and Beyond!

by James on 07/04/2018
Although you are able to preview the cottage in advance to renting it the pictures do not do this little gem justice. It truly welcomes you to Maine. My husband and I have been to the area many times and this trip we took our daughter and her two small children. It was the grandkids first time experiencing the beach and ocean. Not only were we greeted by an immaculate cottage, but the thought that went in to all the extras put it over the top. Everything you would need for a Maine vacation, from beach chairs, an umbrella, cooler and even sand toys for the kids. They thought of everything. There was even a drying rack for all our towels at the end of the day. We could not have been happier. I would also like to mention that the office staff were so welcoming and friendly upon check in. The grounds and pool area were extremely clean and well kept. We can not wait till next year. Awesome vacation spot!

Perfect stay

by Daniel on 07/03/2018
The cottage is very clean, perfectly equipped and even nicer than the photos. The grounds are perfectly kept. Pool and spa very clean. Absolutely no negative. Loved our stay.


by Tom on 07/03/2018
Everything went well, a perfect vacation. The Cottage was amazing. Got to know a few other residents as well. It was a great time had by all. See you next year.


by Carol on 07/02/2018
Beautifully decorated and oh-so-clean. Equipped with everything needed but often forgotten to make a perfect vacation. Looking forward to another wonderful visit in 2019

Nice and clean

by Nathalie on 06/29/2018

Cabin 160

by Marybeth on 06/27/2018
My husband, daughter and I all agree that are stay at Watercress was a positive one. The cabin was quiet, very clean and fully equipped. We were comfortable and had a beautiful sea breeze. Birds sang in the tree by the cabin. Thank you for providing this excellent accommodation. Marybeth


by Rita on 06/26/2018
We love the cottage that we stay in. Cottage #137 is so pretty with lots of sunlight streaming in. We have been coming to Watercrest cottages for the past 3 years and most certainly will be back. Thank you for such a wonderful vacation and the weather was beautiful.

Always an excellant stay.

by Herbert on 06/26/2018
Poll was wonderful, Hot tub was wonderful, Room was perfect, Mattress excellent.Love it.

Very enjoyable 3 night

by Isabelle on 06/26/2018
Stayed 3 nights in cottage 111 with my daughter. Lovely, clean, beachy, well appointed and comfortable cottage. Double beds in large room were comfortable. We would stay here again without hesitation! Watercrest Resort is the best "bang for your buck" option in Wells! Isabelle from Montreal

Exceeded Expectations

by Glenn and Deborah on 06/25/2018
We were delighted with our accommodations. Joy's Cottage is very tastefully decorated, it has been updated since the photos were taken for the website. The kitchen is well equipped and the bed is comfortable. We especially liked the entrance at the rear and there's is a little back yard with chairs and the grill where one can relax away from the road and activities. It was perfect for traveling with our dog. Joy has planted flowers along the fence and cottage and obviously takes pride in her care of the grounds. We will be staying there again next year.


by Amy on 06/21/2018
We really loved the cottage especially the porch. Plenty of room for all of us. Nothing at all wrong with cottage. That was great. To bad the pool and hot tub weren't in operation though.


by Cari on 06/16/2018
We had some difficulty checking in but the manager was extremely accommodating and took care of this for the first night. Loved the location since it was easy to get to our events in other cities as well as explore the coast line. The cottage, #124, has a super low toilet which should be updated and some odd things about the kitchen... the oven blocks cupboards & drawers from opening so alot of the utensils are hanging on the side. But it has a great screened patio porch, comfortable bed and a nice livingroom to hang out and watch tv.


by Patricia on 06/13/2018
Had a great time! The cottage was well supplied which made it easy for us.

Another great vacation!

by Mary on 06/06/2018
We very much enjoyed our time in Cottage 101. We were thankful to see a new coffee pot and nice sheets and towels! We did purchase and donate a skid free bath mat to the cottage. Of course, nice new furniture and beds would be great. My elderly mother is used to a recliner so we managed!! This isn't your own home, but it feels like our home away from home for one week every year. See you next year!


by Jake on 06/04/2018
we were a little disappointed that the pool was closed during our stay. We tend to stay places with a pool and spend a little extra money so were disappointed that the kids could not swim during our stay.


by Calle on 06/03/2018
We have stayed in unit 122 in the spring for many years now. It is super clean, which is very important to us....nicely furnished and cared for....lots of amenities for the beach and fantastic bedding. Love the new small loveseat....kitchen is great for cooking.... Two small ideas for improvement: a full length mirror and a separate container to hold recyclables at the unit. Thank you!


by Karleen on 05/23/2018
Thank you for a nice stay. Just two considerations. It would be nice if the beds were made when we arrived. It would be nice if housekeeping stripped beds and did most of cleaning. Otherwise, it's not much of a vacation. Also, I have a confirmation that a cabin we rented in July was canceled. I asked for the cancellation as my sister is sick and we must go for treatments then (July4,4...her birthday 🙁 and 5). I have already paid half. I was given notice tha $50 is the penalty fee for canceling, but I did not receive a check for the money I had already sent, mor when I might receive the money.

Cute and cozy

by Kristin on 05/22/2018
It was my first time in this cottage, although I have stayed at Watercrest many times. The cottage information said that it had a sleep couch...not true. It has a recliner love seat, which was comfortable for sitting, but would have been uncomfortable for sleeping. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, etc.


by Conrad on 05/17/2018
This the second time we have stayed at Cottage #149 and we just love it. The unit is the perfect size for us, the big front porch is so nice and the inside has been decorated so well it gets you in the spirit of Maine immediately. Both times it's been very quiet and the grounds are kept up very well. We hope to come back in September for a few days after Labor Day.

Home away from Home

by James on 05/15/2018
We love staying in 140. It's our favorite room (although we haven't branched out much from the motel to be honest). The bed is super comfortable and the bathroom is a decent size. The plugs aren't in the best places and could be updated and the TV could also use an upgrade, but it's a fantastic room overall. I think the only other thing that would be nice (but this is personal preference) is if there were room darkening curtains on the sliding glass door. We look forward to coming back in August!


by Albert on 10/22/2017
Our stay My Sons and I was first rate as usual. We are looking forward to next year; after Labor Day. That time of year is best for Us. Again, thank You for the excellent service. Al

Maine Trip

by Thomas on 10/19/2017
We have stayed at WaterCrest for the past six years , This year we stayed in room 141. Had a very nice stay as always and the room was very nice. I would recommend it to everyone.


by Frank on 10/03/2017
Enjoy the cottage very much, liked the new couch. Decorated very nice and well equipped. Hope to rent it again.

Beachy Cottage

by Quick on 10/02/2017
The cottage was decorated nicely, comfortable, and very clean. We appreciated the television that was in the master bedroom. We have been vacationing in Maine for over 10 years. This was are 3rd year staying at Water Crest Cottages and this is nicest cottage we have stayed in. This is the 1st year we did not bring our dog with us do to have prior arraignments for our dog. We fill the pet fees are a bit excessive. We go to Florida for 2 months in the winter and pay less pet fees then we do at Water Crest for 2 weeks.


by Albert on 09/27/2017
As always our stay was very relaxing and incident free My sons and I are already looking forward to next year [ I would like to thank Claire for sending My cell phone charger so promptly. Al


by Michael on 09/27/2017
1 bedRoom was advertised as having a queen bed and it was only a full size Window in one of the bedrooms did not open


by Michael on 09/26/2017
The cottage lacked saucepans and there was no iron board or iron for use.

Unit 109

by Brenda on 09/24/2017
Was exactly what we wanted. Very cozy and home like. It was absolutely perfect. We are definitely coming back next year. Loved everything about the cottage and the pool and jacuzzi were great after a long day shopping and just site seeing.


by Robert on 09/24/2017
Perfect cottage for 2 people. We would love to stay there again.


by Robert on 09/24/2017
Unit 135 was properly prepared for our 1 week stay. The office staff were very professional and assisted us before and after taking occupancy. The shared laundry was immaculate and very convenient. I would recommend Watercrest to everyone.

Great cottage

by Todd on 09/20/2017
We really enjoyed the cottage, clean, bright & spacious.we had a great time on our vacation!!! See you next year!!!

Great place to stay

by Jeffrey on 09/16/2017
We have rented the same cottage several years in a row and have already reserved for next year . It is clean, well stocked with supplies including dishes, utensils, grill, coffee pot, etc. there is plenty of room. My only wish is that they would put a tv in the bedroom The employees are also very friendly and helpful.

Great vacation!!

by Margaret on 09/14/2017
Clean cottage. Solid amenities. Close to beaches. Enjoyed the week very much!


by Herbert & Barbara on 09/11/2017
Cabin 122 was perfect except the mattress was not perfect as she woke up with a back ache. Please replace the mattress with like in 140. thank you Herb Mattson. Room occupied Sept.05- thru the 08th. Thank you


by Rosemary on 09/11/2017
We enjoyed our stay at Watercrest very much; it was quiet, clean and comfortable! The pool and hot tub were kept clean, the staff was pleasant and helpful; check in and check out were quick and easy. I would definitely stay again!

Great place to stay

by Janice on 09/07/2017
First time staying and will plan again. Impressed with how clean it was and we liked the fact that it was away from the street and had privacy.


by Mike on 08/31/2017
Nice clean place to stay for 2 nights, check in was easy and pleasant with Claire.

August Trip

by Lisa on 08/31/2017
I usually come here in September but other plans got in the way so I came in August. My visit was wonderful as always. The cottage is perfect for one or two people. I especially love the screen porch. Look forward to returning again.


by Paul & Connie on 08/30/2017
Cottage was very nice. We enjoyed our stay very much.

We love this place

by Antonia on 08/30/2017
we have been staying at the watercrest now for 3 years and we can't wait to visit again next year! There are so many activities to be done on site, beautiful homes that make you feel as if you were home! I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking to travel to Maine!

Best Vacation Ever!

by Joseph on 08/30/2017
Lovely cottage. Pool and play areas are lots of fun. Friendly, knowledgeable, staff. Kid and pet friendly. A+


by Sophie on 08/30/2017
Very nice place. Clean, lots of space. We got all we needed. Great vacation. Would go back !

Great stay at Watercrest Cottages!

by Mary on 08/29/2017
We just came back from staying a week at Watercrest. We had unit 122, and it was perfect in many ways. Very clean, cozy, and comfortable. It was perfect for myself, my husband, and our little dog. The only complaint we have is that the grill was unusable. It's very old and rotting. The pool was clean, and nicely kept - we enjoyed it very much! The grounds are very pretty - maybe a couple of fire pits to enjoy in the evenings? Game of cornhole? Either way, we'll be back - We really loved the place! Thank you!

Thank you for your comments. I do apologize for the grill and wanted to let you know we have replaced it with a brand new one. Thank you for bringing that to our attention. Also not sure if you are aware we have a corn hole game for our guests to use. Thank You Rachel

Cottage 147

by Chris on 08/25/2017
Was expecting a little more from the kitchen area. There were no paper products. Towels TP plates etc... Napkins No plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Other units in the past have had more than enough. Been staying with watercrest for over 25 years.

Great kitchen

by Richard on 08/23/2017
Once again we had a great stay in unit 152. The unit is tastefully furnished with very comfortable beds. Love the kitchen layout especially the dishwasher and extra cupboard space gained by moving the refrigerator. We'll be back again next year.


by Jennifer/Mark on 08/22/2017
We had an excellent stay. Our cabin was very clean and tidy. The park was quiet and the people in the front office were very nice. We have stayed in a few different places in the past years, but now we have found the place we will stay at in the future. We will be staying at The Watercrest from now on! I would recommend this place to anyone looking to vacation in Wells Maine.


by Todd/Rachel on 08/22/2017
Very clean, convenient to to everything. Cottage had everything we needed. Pool and spa were great. Would definitely return.


by Richard & Linda on 08/22/2017
We enjoyed our stay. We had 4 adults and it was just right. A bit cramped to use the inside dining but we used the porch set for breakfast and card playing so it was perfect. Ceiling fans would make a great addition for sleeping. Less need for the air conditioner. Our dog was also quiet content. We would certainly enjoy a return visit.


by Williams on 08/17/2017
We first stayed at Watercrest 40 years ago on our honeymoon, now our children and grandchildren have happy memories of it too. It has been well maintained, always clean, good service and the grandchildren love the pool.


by Bonnie on 08/16/2017
Watercrest cottages are a great place to stay with your family. It's like a home away from home. The pool and hot tub are great if you need a day off from the beach. They are located within walking distance to some restaurants and the trolley stops out front! I highly recommend Watercrest Cottages.

Unit 133

by Joanne on 08/16/2017
The new carpet was a nice touch. The only improvement or upgrade that I can think of would be a recliner to the left of the sofa like you have in other E units. We are looking forward to coming back to 133 next year.


by John on 08/14/2017
All was good, enjoyed our time there. Would definitely stay again. Thank you


by Danielle on 08/11/2017
The cottage was very clean and we realy appreciated. A new shower please!And maybe more towels holders. It's a lovely cottage where life is good.Thank you. PS:My comments are shared by my family.

Home away from home

by Michael on 08/10/2017
As usual our stay in unit 152 was great.The weather for the was excellent and our family really enjoyed our stay.Hopefully we left the cabin as clean as we found it upon arrival.Thanks to the Watercrest folks who always are accomodating and make our stay that much more enjoyable.Looking forward to next year already.

Our getaway for a few days

by Normand on 08/09/2017
Wish we could've stayed longer. Convenient location; the cottage was clean & great place to stay. Hope to be back soon. Thak you.


by MéLanie on 08/09/2017
Great stay another time


by Jean on 08/09/2017
Another perfect week in Wells, Maine at our usual cottage. Loved every minute of it! See you in 2018.


by Carrie on 08/09/2017
Cottage was very well kept and clean. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely be coming back.

This unit had everything we wanted and more. Close to the pool and very friendly staff. The only comment I would make is let people know on the site that these units come fully furnished with towels, sheets etc. We brought everything with us because we were under the impression that you had to bring your own stuff. With that being said we had an amazing 4 days and because of those 4 days we will be back for a week or two next year.


by Rebecca on 08/05/2017
we have been stating at watercrest for sometime now, this beign the first time we rented a cabin(house). The unit we said in was great and done up very nicely. We will be staying there again next year as my family is growing with grandchildren. The staff and other guests are also very nice and pleasant. See you next year Rebecca


by Melissa on 08/05/2017
Another wonderful time with my family in Maine. I enjoy how my children always make new friends and the community feel of Watercrest.

Our Maine vacation

by Joyce on 08/02/2017
We had a wonderful week at Water Crest again this year. Weather was great and as always our cottage was clean and had everything we needed. Grandkids had great fun at the pool and playground and of course trips to the beach. We look forward to coming every year and are already signed up for next year. This is a great place for a family vacation.


by Bruce on 07/27/2017
We had a wonderful time celebrating our Anniversary at one of your cottages. We're hoping to come back again next summer with the whole family! We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the cottage and all of the amenities provided. A wonderful get away!!

Cottage 154

by Aannette on 07/27/2017
This cottage is remarkable! The owners are always adding something new ! We have been renting at Watercrest for years .......the best part is how quiet it is and the pride the staff takes in cleanliness!!!!


by Marie on 07/27/2017
As in previous years I enjoyed my stay immensely. Clean, quiet and personnel pleasant.

by Phyllis & Russ on 07/26/2017
As always, WaterCrest Cottages are the best in Maine. We are never disappointed and Rachel is such a wonderful person. She accommodates our every need and makes it such a pleasure to stay here. You are blessed to have her there. She is a keeper!!


by Sharmaine on 07/26/2017
We always have a great experience here thank you you all do a wonderful job

Great Vacation

by Andrew on 07/25/2017
We stayed at Watercrest from July 15 - 22, 2017. Everything was great! Staff were very helpful. The cottage was clean and bright with everything we needed. Centrally located. The only thing I would mention is that guests should be advised not to 'reserve' poolside tables and chairs unless they are actually at the pool. Other than that, a great stay. Thank you.


by Claire on 07/25/2017

Watercrest 149

by Aannette on 07/25/2017
This cottage is wonderful in so many ways....the porch is huge and furnished nicely....ample seating inside and out for a great family cookout......it is a peaceful place to hang your hat after a day at the beach .....or a day of shopping......I have been renting this cottage for years and hope to do so for many more..... The staff at the office are outstanding..... friendly and helpful.....the best thing is that it is a joy to walk into these cottages and have them clean clean clean

Pleasant Stay

by Tatyana on 07/25/2017
We like to stay in Watercrest. This is a great family place. Pool area could be larger, as it is very crowded during day time. It was okay with us as we prefer beach, still it is nice to get a dip in the pool once in a while.

Unit 103

by Ernie And Paula on 07/23/2017
We have stayed many years at Unit 103 and enjoyed the use of it. It is very clean and well cared for and we would stay here again. We also like the entire staff and have been for happy for years.Keep up the good work. Ernie Belletete

Well-Stocked Cottage Spacious and Clean

by Amy on 07/20/2017
The office staff is very friendly and informative. We appreciated that. The cottage was everything we expected, and more. Thank you for a fantastic stay.

Great Stay

by Casey on 07/20/2017
My family and I had a great stay in Water Crest Cottage #104. The cottage was very clean and had all of the essentials needed to enjoy a nice week away from home. The kids also enjoyed the pool and playground. We will definitely be back again!


by Mike on 07/20/2017
been going to W C for years we love it

Family reunion Week stay

by Curt on 07/20/2017
We liked the openness and light and brightness of the interiors and especially loved the screened-in the porch. Kitchen was a bit tiny, but we made do. Overall, the cottage felt clean and the finishes in the porch were wonderful. Carpet may need deep cleaning or replacement. Great place to stay and relatively easy access to attractions. Pool was nice and the hot tub was amazing.

A place to remember

by Nathalie on 07/11/2017
we had an excellent time at the cottage. There was plenty of space and the porch is soooo marvelous for eating or relaxing! We went to the beach by bike very easily. The pool and the spa were really a good thing to do at the end of the day. Everything is near, groceries, restaurants, mini golf, Ogunquit, Kenebunk, etc. Thank you for letting us rent your house, it is our fifth time in Wells and your place exceeded all our needs!!! Hope to go back soon


by Melanie on 07/11/2017
We had a very enjoyable stay in Cottage 153. The cottage was clean and had everything you would need and more. There was plenty of room for the four adults and 2 children without getting in each other's way. We would definitely go again. The management staff were friendly and helpful.

Wonderful family vacation!

by Angela on 07/06/2017
Our family of three thoroughly enjoyed our stay in cottage 103 at Water Crest and on the Southern Maine coast in general. Everything we needed was at our disposal in this cute little cottage. Our daughter loved having the pool on site. One suggestion is to replace the mattress in the master bedroom as it was quite uncomfortable. Overall however, we had a great time and would certainly return. Thank you!


by Arlene on 06/29/2017
Great little cottages , clean and comfortable this our third time staying here , we love it !!!!


by Rita on 06/27/2017
Beautiful cottage,loved staying there. Cottage is stocked with all the necessities. Will be back next year.

Great, well-appointed cottage

by James on 06/27/2017
This is our second year staying at this cottage and it was equally comfortable. The three TVs, massive array of kitchen supplies and pleasant decor continue to make this an ideal place for our family vacation. Additionally, this year a brand new grill was added, which made a great experience even better.

Wonderful Area

by Joseph on 06/26/2017
The room was great. Everything I needed was included. I enjoyed a quiet and relaxing week with great weather. I would recommend this room for 1 or 2 people. Lovely deck to sit out and enjoy your time when you are not sightseeing.


by Carol on 06/21/2017
We so love returning to our home-away-from-home cottage. It has become an annual tradition for my sisters, Mom, and I. The cottage is always clean and comfortable. The location is perfect. The "girls" in the office are friendly, helpful and professional. So glad to have you there.


by Carolyn on 05/12/2017
My sisters and I have stayed at 3 of your cottages over the past few years and have always enjoyed ourselves. Reserving the unit has been easy and the staff is always pleasant and very helpful.


by Norma on 10/21/2016
Everything worked fine. We enjoyed our stay and ,if we are still able, (we are 80 & 85 yrs old) we will be there next September. Regards, Norma and Ernie

A wonderful place to relax!

by Bethany on 10/19/2016
Watercrest has always been our favorite place in Wells, any time of the year! They are very accommodating! Even turned the heater on for us, as the night we were coming in, it was 30 degrees out. Thank you!


by Laurent on 10/15/2016
The cottage was very comfortable Had all the necessities required


by Jerry on 10/14/2016
Cottage #116 was very nice. Always a great time at Water Crest!!!


by Daniel on 10/11/2016
The cottage was absolutely perfect. We totally enjoyed our time there and plan on revisiting again. The best part of our trip was the smile in the office as all customer service people should be as polite and upbeat as yours was on all three trips into the office. The young lady there should start a training class for people as nothing makes a vacation better than a positive attitude as displayed by the receptionist. Thanks for making our stay pleasant.


by Greg D. on 10/11/2016
Loved it!!! First timer to Maine and I could not have got a better cottage, I believe it has one of the best views toward the ocean. We had a short drive to the brewery and great seafood all on mile road. Thumbs up to Claire for all the help Thank you


by Thomas on 10/10/2016
Had a very nice stay, room was great. Thank you

Great Cottage!

by Chris on 10/04/2016
My cousin, two friends, myself and my little terrier stayed at Cottage 117 and loved it. It was so bright and had a beachy feel to it. We loved the layout and had more than enough room. The beds were comfortable as well. We would not hesitate to rent this lovely cottage again. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to stay in this great cottage. Hoping to stay here next year. We had a great time! Thank you also to the girls in the office Clare and Rachel for all your help. I appreciate it.


by Marcia on 09/28/2016
Nice and clean place. Easy to reserve. have stayed in this cottage before and would return again.

Nice Cottages in the middle of everything.

by Quick on 09/27/2016
This was are second year staying at WaterCrest Cottages in Wells, Maine. There is several cottages to choose from studios to 3 bedrooms. Give Rachel or Claire a call and they can help you choose the right cottage. The unit we stayed in was clean and comfortable but could use TLC in the updating of the cottage. These cottages are approximately 1 mile from the beach and several of the cottages you can see the marsh or the beach. You are walking distance to some of the restaurants. There is a swimming pool, hot tub, updated laundry facility, and some of the cottages are pet friendly. I would recommend staying at WaterCrest Cottages in Wells Maine. We met several of the owners of the cottages on are stay and they are friendly and helpful.


by Sharon on 09/22/2016
Thanks to all of you, you made my stay at cottage 159 an easy one for me. As you know my husband had a severe heart attack while we were there. By letting me stay 3 extra weeks it made it possible for me to visit him every day. My accommodations were wonderful, and all the employees were super. I can't say enough for my stay. We will be back next year, if you will have us. Also it was a great stay at cottage 137. Sharon

Great Place!

by Lisa on 09/22/2016
This is my second visit to Water Crest and have already made reservations for next year. I love the cottage that I have - it is perfect for one or two people. It is very comfortable and spotless clean as well. Linens are included since it is a studio, and it has a full kitchen including plates, silverware and cooking utensils. The screen porch off the back is wonderful, with distant views to the ocean. The other great thing is that this is within walking distance to several great restaurants. I would highly recommend staying at Water Crest!

Sept 10 - Sept 17 stay

by Brian on 09/21/2016
Had a great time. Cottage #153 was just the right size. And for the time frame I don't think the weather could have been better. WC cottage hosts were the best. We hope Rachael made out well in Florida. Brian & Jane

Quiet, peaceful, great fun

by Janet on 09/20/2016
Our studio was clean, quiet and nicely appointed. We enjoyed our stay. A night at the Front Porch singing and a dinner at Joshua's enhanced our trip.


by Gary on 09/16/2016
My wife and I with our schnauzer stayed in cottage 110 It was clean and comfortable This is one of the smaller cottages, but was more than adequate for our needs The staff is very friendly and helpful. We plan on returning next year

Magnifique semaine dans le cottage 117

Nous avons passé une magnifique semaine dans votre charmant cottage 117. Tout est bien pensé et décoré avec goût. Au plaisir! Céline, Claude et Merlin


by Jeffrey on 09/15/2016
Great place to stay. Close to everything. Cabins are well stocked and clean. Already reserved cabin for next year.

Our stay in unit 155

by Barbara on 09/15/2016
We enjoyed our stay in Unit #155. It is a lovely, clean and well equipped cottage and Watercrest is a great complex to stay at while vacationing in Maine, especially with pets. We had a problem with the AC unit but it was fixed very promptly and the office staff was very helpful. Hope we get to stay at Watercrest and unit #155 in the future.


by Linda on 09/15/2016
Thank you for a great time at the cottages #160 was the best....the best time we had there in a long time....a rest that was greatly needed....thank you Claire for making a great weekend happen...,..can't wait to return next year.....and telling lots of friends about the cottages....thank you thank-you again....blessings Linda and Charlie and our friends Barb and Gary..♥

Another Great week

new review

by Herbert on 09/13/2016
best ever stay

Cottage 115

by Paul on 09/13/2016
The cottage was very nice, beds comfortable, clean and appeared newly renovated. Bath tub a bit slippery, needs soap dish or bar to hold on to. Kitchen well equipped, did not need anything. Never used the porch do to facing rear, yet sofa faced door to living room. Just my opinion seemed like cottage could have been faced toward common grounds. Staff very nice, helpful. I would stay here again.


by William on 09/11/2016
Nice cabins,


by Cara on 09/08/2016
The cabin was great. It had everything we needed and plenty of space. We would definitely stay again.


by Sharmaine on 09/08/2016
Best place in Wells the units are always clean and the employees top notch we have stayed here 3 times over the last year it's amazing and the prices are great can't wait to go back thank you for always treating us family while here on vacation

Just Perfect!

by Mary on 09/01/2016
First time staying at Watercrest and not my last - looking to book next year! The cottage we stayed in was unbelievably clean, not to mention adorable. Everything included except your food and clothing! The manager was great and the front desk help couldn't have been friendlier. Great place! We didn't have a chance to swim in the pool, although it looked quite inviting! My only wish is for a fire pit on the grounds. But I'm not complaining! Thank you!


by Mallory on 08/31/2016
Very clean. Everything was great

completely satisfied

by Beverly on 08/30/2016
Very nice place

Best vacation stay

by Joanne on 08/30/2016
We would like to thank the staff and Sue and Skip for making our first time at Watercress in Wells a most welcoming, comfortable, and relaxing vacation to date. The cottage we stayed at was beyond our expectations. We have stayed in other areas of southern coastal Maine and those cottages we rented were not as nice or comfortable as the cottage we had this year. We chose Wells because it has everything close and convenient. When choosing a place to stay we checked the website and yours was very informative with pictures of the cottages and the property. When we contacted the office the staff was very helpful which made the decision to book an easy choice. We look forward to coming back to Wells Maine and especially would like to stay at Watercress next summer. Thanks again Sincerely Joanne and Greta (mom)

yearly vacation

by Marilu on 08/29/2016
Another season has come and gone. The week was great always have a great time at Watercrest, this is your summer vacation place. And some get aways when we can. Thanks Again to all the staff.


by Deborah on 08/26/2016
Fantastic stay for just one night. Will def be back.


by Kurt J. on 08/25/2016
We loved the cottage #138 and hope to rent it again next year.

our stay at cottage 103

by Robert on 08/25/2016
my family and I stayed at cottage #103, and our stay was very nice. The only glitch was that the ice maker decided to leak and flood the kitchen area. The management got right on the situation and problem was solved quickly, to their credit. Overall we had a good time. thank you

Family Vacation

by Antonia on 08/24/2016
This is my second time staying at this location, happens to be that we rented the same home again! Great place to come with your family and friends! We love how friendly everyone is and most important how clean the homes are! We can't wait to visit again next year!


by Suzanne on 08/24/2016
Cozy cottage . Would certainly request this cozy well decorated cottage. Loved the privacy

Perfect Cottage

by Kelly on 08/23/2016
This was our second stay at Watercrest and I know we will be back. Unit 149 was absolutely perfect. We had a great vacation.

Cottage 109

by Claire on 08/18/2016
You can't go wrong with this cottage! Great location, convenient to beaches and shopping Peaceful setting open space, pool, and children's play areas.We loved it and will return.


by Ann on 08/17/2016
This is my,my daughter and 3 grandchildren's second summer @ WaterCrest Cottages. It always feels like home away from home during our stay. The cottage was immaculate, well stocked kitchen and comfortable living room and beds.The office staff is attentive,helpful and pleasant. Thank you Caroline and Mike for sharing your home ! Ann McCarthy and family

Great stay at Water Crest

by Nancy on 08/17/2016
We had another fabulous family vacation at Water Crest. The staff was super accommodating , attending to our needs promptly and efficiently. We look forward to returning next summer!

Awesome Cottage

by Christine on 08/16/2016
Our family had a wonderful time staying in cottage 112. Only problem we had was the wifi was not great but figured it was our phones and didnt complain about it.Kept everyone off their phones. LOL Would recommend staying in this cottage if you had children lots of extras. Tv in the bedroom with the queen size bed would be nice would be the one thing I would change. Thanks for offering a wonderful place to stay!


by Arthur on 08/12/2016
Enjoyed our stay there, as our daughter & family were there. We have stayed there before and enjoyed our stay. We will be back


by Williams on 08/10/2016
First time renting this unit, no issue's, nicely laid out.


by Williams on 08/10/2016
Excellent service, had an issue with the door lock, was there within the hour and fixed. Been in the same cottage for years, well maintained.

Watercrest Vacation Cottage

by Jean on 08/10/2016
We have been coming to Watercrest for years and it is a week we look forward to every year. Quick check in and "our" cottage is always a home away from home for a week. We literally unpack the car and kick back and enjoy the week in Maine. Cottage is always clean and ready for us. Laundry on site is wonderful and the pool and hot tub are used daily by all of us! A peaceful, quiet place to stay every year. Truly rejuvenating for my family! Keep up the good work! See you in 2017.


by Don on 08/10/2016
Great stay as always. See you again next year


by Jennifer on 08/09/2016
We loved this cottage, it was so clean! My family had a great vacation and would love to come back again. Thank you for letting us bring our dog as she is a big part of our family we had zero stress because we got to bring her with us! Special memories made 🙂 Thank you


by Jim on 08/09/2016
We enjoyed our stay very much. We particularly liked the large porch area. A large pot for boiling corn would be helpful. We could also have used a clothesline to hang wet bathing suits and towels. Joan and Jim Shearon


by Laura on 08/09/2016
Had fabulous time as always, cottage had everything we needed and staff pleasant and helpful. We will be back

great stay

by Chloe on 08/08/2016
It was my third stay at WaterCrest and, as alwalys, it was great. Our room was very clean and confortable. My kids and I enjoyed it. We will be back for sure.


by Phyllis on 08/03/2016
The cottage was as always perfect and Rachel is a gem! We thoroughly enjoyed our week with you. Expecting to return next year as always.


by Karine on 08/03/2016
Nous avons adoré notre séjour. Le site est vraiment génial pour les enfants. Le cottage était charmant et confortable. Petite suggestion : acheter une cafetière plus grosse! Merci!

Week in Vacationland Wells, Maine

by Tom on 08/02/2016
A great place to stay, many activities to do very close to dining,beaches,Kennebunkport and Ogunquit.The cottage was awesome, will be back next year.

Enjoyed our stay!

by Angela on 08/01/2016
Loved the place, very clean and well kept. No sketchy or shady guests, as I have found at other places like this. The staff was beyond friendly and helpful. The pool was warm, and not even crowded (a blessing for someone with two small kids). I would stay again in a heartbeat!


by Peter on 08/01/2016
Once again a wonderful week. We totally enjoyed our stay and we look forward to next year. We really appreciate the fact that we can bring our dog, Sadie with us. She appreciates it too. Keep it affordable, Please! Thank you!

One week July stay 2016

by Joyce on 07/29/2016
Unit #152 was a wonderful cottage to stay in. There is everything you would need for your stay. Tastefully decorated, clean and the staff at Watercrest is friendly and helpful. This was our 6th year of coming to Maine and staying at Watercrest and we look forward to next year. A great family vacation.


by Jean on 07/28/2016
We enjoyed our stay. Thé unit is well organized and the reception at the desk is excellent. We hope to return next year. Tank you.

Beautiful Cabin

by Kelly on 07/28/2016
We love staying in these cottages. This is our second time, and we will definitely do it again. Beautiful and relaxing places. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Beautiful Cabin

by Kelly on 07/28/2016
I love this place! This is the second time we have stayed in these cottages, and they never disappoint. A beautiful and relaxing place to stay! We will definitely stay again!

Best customer service

by Phyllis on 07/27/2016
Rachel is a dream come true when arriving at WaterCrest. She makes every effort to accommodate her visitors. What a joy. We enjoyed our night.


by Solange on 07/27/2016
We had a great time! The cottage was perfect for us. We met many very nice folks, dog friendly and kid friendly!


by Aannette on 07/26/2016
Cleanliness is very important to my family ......we rent two cottages every year and Rachel does an exceptional job of making sure both units are spotless and ready for us...we so appreciate all her hard work in making Watercrest such an enjoyable place stay For our annual family vacation.....


by Joe & Julianne on 07/21/2016
Always a wonderful time at WaterCrest! Thank you also to Rachel who is so very helpful and accommodating when she happily tries to find us a new cottage for the following year! Rachel goes above and beyond to show us various cottages and brainstorm for the next year! Always appreciate her helpfulness! Can't wait until summer of 2017!


by Stephen on 07/20/2016
Another wonderful vacation at WaterCrest. Cottage was super!!! Immaculately clean, comfortable and everything we needed. Hated to leave!!!

Nice cabin

by Heather on 07/20/2016
Cabin 136 is a nice cabin, very neat and clean. We are staying in a two bedroom next year as we need more room. Rachel was a big help taking us all around to pick a two bedroom.

Great Place to Vacation!

by Patricia on 07/19/2016
Our stay at Watercrest cottage #137 was wonderful. We had everything we needed at the cottage and Watercrest is located close to all the places we wanted to visit: Ogunquit, Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, all of the beaches nearby and plenty of restaurants where we could enjoy Maine lobster! The week flew by as we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation. Thank you for a great place to go!

Sad they are not renting anymore

by Jess on 07/19/2016
We have been very happy in cabin 119, especially since the make over. We were told that there would be no more renting due to the cabin being sold. Rachel was wonderful taking us around to all of the cabins that we could switch to....We did find one and hope we are as happy there as we were in 119!

Great time!

by Douglas on 07/19/2016
We always enjoy our stay at Watercrest. The staff (Rachel) is always friendly and ready to take care of any of our needs. My only complaint is the counter space (or lack of) in cabin 139. However, I don't think that there is a solution to the problem due to the set up of the cabin. The cabin is always neat and clean when we get there. Thank you!


by Christine on 07/17/2016
Thank you, great hospitality


by Gloria on 07/16/2016
We have been staying at Watercrest for 30 Years and have seen lots of changes. This year we stayed in 101 and as in previous years were very pleased with our stay. I am sure if we come to Maine next year we will most likely stay at Watercrest as it is central to lots of things to do.


by Jason on 07/15/2016
We would come again. Thanks

Great place !!!

by David on 07/13/2016
C'était notre 3ème fois au WaterCrest et c'était encore a la hauteur de nos attentes. Le chalet #117 est super confortable et très bien équipé. Merci à votre merveilleuse équipe !

Our stay Jul 01/2016 - Jul 09/2016

by Maurice on 07/13/2016
Everything was perfect, we like your cottage #133, it is very clean and well maintain. Have been going at the Water Crest for the last 15 years. Always a warm welcome when we arrive at the reception. Rachel and Claire are very professional. thank you Therese & Maurice.

Most enjoyable

by Carrie on 07/12/2016
The unit was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Really enjoyed going to the pool and hot tub after a day on the beach. Will definitely be coming back again!


by Andrea on 07/11/2016

Going back

by Jacqueline on 07/08/2016
Mary Lou's cottage #116 was beautiful and well stocked with supplies. Clean and very comfortable. Our dog Gracie loved it!!

Best Summer Vacation location!

by Bethany on 07/08/2016
We love Watercrest, and will continue to go there! Every year we think about going somewhere else on vacation, but end up back in Maine because we love this place! Its stress free, great for our family size (5) and convenient to all local places and the beach! Thank you for always making our summer vacation amazing!


by Glenda on 07/03/2016
We just loved it. This cottage was well stocked and furniture comfy. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Just a quick 1night stay!

by David on 07/01/2016
We pulled in late afternoon just before the "season" started and was able to grab a small cottage. It was exactly what she was looking for! We had passed on an ocean front room in Wells that would have been loud from foot traffic. Cottage had plenty of space and screened porch allowed breeze from salt marsh blow thru. We will be stopping by again- DJ

we had like the Watercrestcottage &motels

by Guy on 06/29/2016
excuse my english, me and my wife had visit for 3e year and we have project will go more year ago . We like the relax and clean place.It's a good spot for go to the beach ,the supermarket and the restaurant . We like the staff to ,they are very gentle and we had very good help.....


by Joan on 06/29/2016
The Cronin's place is wonderful and my family and I have enjoyed many a vacation here.


by Rita on 06/29/2016
We had a great time. The weather was great. The cottage was clean, bright, and very comfortable. The people are helpful and very pleasant. Would recommend it to anyone. Will keep coming back!


by Heather on 06/29/2016
Pleasantly surprised with size, was bigger then expecting. Bedroom different from photo which was another great surprise as all 4 of my kids could stay in one room! Favorite thing was the ability to rent for one night, we had a fantastic stay!

Great service and amenities!

by James on 06/24/2016
I stayed in this cabin with my family of four. We were impressed with the friendly, professional service of all the office staff, as well as the spaciousness of the cabin. The unit was fully equipped with all imaginable appliances, 3 TVs with VCR/DVD combos, and even sandwich bags and lobster crackers! It was more like a small apartment than a cabin and with laundry on site it was a very comfortable week for the four of us. I would definitely recommend Watercrest and this unit, particularly for families.

Allez-y sans hésiter !!

by Caroline on 06/22/2016
2 ans de suite, 2 cottages différents mais tout aussi confortables et entièrement équipé! Belle piscine, emplacement impeccable, tout est très bien entretenu. Très tranquille. Près des plages,pharmacie,épicerie... ! Les petits animaux sont les bienvenus ! Excellent accueil.


by Ray on 06/17/2016
I would say our stay was a high average, but the young lady that checked us in made the experience above average. I don't recall here name, but she worked part time and went to school to get her masters degree.

Our stay June 2016- WONDERFUL!!

by Isabella on 06/15/2016
Incredibly please with our site! The staff was so friendly and accommodating! The room (suite 140) was clean, quiet and extremely well equipped for a pleasant stay! We loved having the kitchen and full sized fridge and weres pleasantly surprised to find that we not only had a kitchen, but all the plates, flatware, etc (down to even aluminum foil &grill tools!) As well! & for the price we payed to stay there?! A STEAL! Thank you for being a wonderful place to get away, water crest!


by Cari on 06/10/2016
We really enjoyed our stay in the cottage #154. Very cute, clean and cozy! Thank you!

Home away from home

by Kaye on 06/10/2016
I've stayed a lot of places in Wells and Ogunquit and this is by far the best! The cottages were so cute and comfortable, the 'village' was quiet and peaceful and we found ourselves wanting to spend more time at the cottage rather than sightseeing! We traveled to Maine with a very large group and many of our group stayed at Watercrest and it was so nice to visit with everyone at their cottages and go 'home' when we were ready. Will definitely stay here again next year!


by Sharmaine on 06/09/2016
We love your place so warm and welcoming always clean and neat as a pin even the outside is perfect you can tell you take great pride in your business thank you for always accommodating my family and the price is awesome see you soon❤️


by Deborah on 06/01/2016
Very clean beautiful cottage ! Thank you we would love to come back !

Cottage #149

by Donna on 05/30/2016
We enjoyed a pleasant 'girls weekend away' in cottage 149. We were very surprised by the spaciousness of the unit! It was beautifully decorated in a nautical theme and very clean. The enormous sun porch quickly became our favorite hangout spot. The two women (sorry, I didn't get names) I dealt with during check-in and check-out were pleasant and most helpful. My friends and I will definitely be back!!!

Nice place

by Michael on 10/22/2015
Nice place to stay, quiet and everyone is friendly. Would definitely stay there again.


by Fred on 10/21/2015
we had a great time and have already told many people about your cottages!

by Sandra on 10/20/2015
This is the third time that I have stayed at Watercrest.It is never disappointing and always meets our expectations!The grounds are meticulous and well groomed.Staff is courteous and very accommodating. Above all, the cottages are beautiful, well stocked,ample furnishings and IMMACULATE. Thoroughly enjoyed our week, look forward to returning in the spring!

Nice little cottage

by Jerry on 10/19/2015
We stayed at this cottage in July & October of 2015. Both visits were great, they even included perfect weather for us! Cottage has everything you need and then some. We will be returning next year.

Watercrest A Great Place To Stay and Relax

by Kenneth on 10/09/2015
We have always loved coming to Maine and staying at Watercrest. We started coming over 20 years ago and have stayed in several different units and have enjoyed them all. Thanks so much!

The Way Life Should Be

by Frank on 10/06/2015
Great as always, had a wonderful stay, see you next year.

Perfest Weather - perfect place

by Sister Clare on 09/30/2015
Our stay at Water Crest was refreshing, the days were relaxing and the Cottage provided both with a comfortable space. And the weather on top of all this, was spectacular.

Great Place to Stay.

by Quick on 09/29/2015
Rachel, Claire, and Joe are great staff. While we was there the refrigerator was not working properly. So I stopped at the front office and seen Rachel and she sent Joe the maintenance guy down to look at it. The owner was contacted and a new refrigerator was delivered in a couple of days. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. The cottage we stayed in was clean and quiet. The cottage is at the back of Water Crest so you do not have any noise from the road. My wife and I had the chance to meet several of the owners and they were all very nice and helpful on telling us great places to eat. We are hoping to go back next year and stay at Water Crest Cottages. To all the staff and owners Connie and I hope you have a safe year and will see you next fall. Greg and Connie Quick

Love The WaterCrest!

by Ingrid on 09/29/2015
We more than enjoy our stay every time we visit the WaterCrest. The complex is well managed, quiet and tranquil too. We must say Claire and Rachel made us feel as though we were just "old" friends. They are the perfect front line to a perfect vacation. Hope to see you soon. Ingrid and Chip

Had the Best Week

by Cheryl on 09/24/2015
Second visit to this particular cottage, and already have booked again for next year. Everything went smoothly from checking in to (sigh) checking out. Did not want to leave. Clean and peaceful. A TV has been added to the porch which is a nice touch. The porch is our favorite spot for morning breakfast and dog treats. Again met some very nice people,and Bandit made some more nice doggie friends. Bandit gives this cottage *****5 WAGS***. Thank you Sue and Skip for once again sharing your cozy cottage with us. And remember if you need **cottage sitters*** we are available :). Cheryl and Lori Cowee and Bandit

Great place, great cottage!

by Lisa on 09/24/2015
This was my first visit to Watercrest. I can't wait to return. Cottage 158 was perfect for me. Everything was clean and in great condition. Loved the screen porch. Nice swimming pool and hot tub. The grounds are kept up very nicely. Walking distance to favorite restaurants and just a short ride to the ocean. I submitted a review to TripAdvisor as well.

Cottage 135 review

by Daniel on 09/23/2015
It's always a pleasure to be at the Watercrest Cottages. It's the third time we rented the unit 135 and we have rented a cottage at the Watercrest 8 times in the last 9 years I think. Your cottages are always clean and well equiped. Thanks

Good stay at Watercrest

by Jean on 09/23/2015
We always enjoy our stay in Cabin 124 - it has everything we need, is clean and quiet and staff are always attentive to any of our questions, etc. Thanks and sure hope to get there next Sept.

Nice Surprise

by Brian on 09/23/2015
Stopped in to stay Fri/Sat nights. Enjoyed the pool, hot tub and location. Comfortable stay and are own private deck off the slider was a nice surprise.

unit 152

by Deborah on 09/18/2015
loved the extra counter and storage space gained by moving the refrigerator. The pillows were wonderful, not the older pillows we've gotten elsewhere. It would've been nice to have had a second TV on the porch for when some wanted to watch football. Also a fan on the porch would've helped cool it off as the sun beats in. Overall, the best unit we've rented at Watercrest.


by Jeffrey on 09/17/2015
Our stay was fantastic as usual. The cabin was very clean and well maintained. The staff we encountered were pleasant. We even booked the cabin for next year! My only complaint is the fact that you have to either bring your own sheets and towels or rent them. This is a vacation and I feel this is an inconvenience and an unnecessary expense. Other than that we love it!

Thank you so much!

by William on 09/15/2015
We randomly picked your location for our trip from Maryland to visit Maine for the first time. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the cottage. If we visit Southern Maine again, we would definitely stay again. Thank you.

Cottage 152

by Krysta on 09/10/2015
This cottage was perfect! It was just the right fit! We will definitely be back next year. Thank you so much!!

Great place

by Annie on 09/10/2015
Again we enjoyed our stay at the Whater crest. The cottage was perfect for us and well maintain, it was very clean and we had everything that we need! The waether was perfecttttt. We will come back!

Can't wait to come back.....

by Christine on 09/09/2015
Thank you to everyone at the Water Crest for great stay. Our room was wonderful, spacious and bright. It was really much bigger than I was expecting even after looking at the pictures. The kitchenette was fantastic, very new and had everything we needed. I must add - our room was spotless, very clean. The pool was great and hot tub perfect. Also, great location. Thanks again we can't wait to come back.

Pleasantly surpised

by Dorothy on 08/29/2015
Was staying at an Inn in Kennebunk,and although the Inn was old It was clean. That was where the best ended. I called and was immedietly given a reservation. We arrived late which was no problem. It was quiet clean about twice the size of our room at the Inn. We had a very restful night, and I would recommend this place to anyone.

stylish cottage

by Nancy on 08/29/2015
Loved the cottage. It served all our needs. Looking forward to next year.

great place to stay!

by Kim on 08/26/2015
Thought it was a very nice cottage. It was clean. The amenities offered like all paper goods and cleaning supplies was above average. I enjoyed being closer to the pool. Finally, the girls in the office were helpful, polite and pleasant. Will be returning next year.

Great Family Vacation Home

by Antonia on 08/26/2015
I am so pleased with my stay at unit 106. My family and I had a great 4 days there. We felt right at home so much, that my husband is looking into buying a cottage at the water crest cottage and motel area. We can't wait to come back again next year and create more family memories.

Cottage 109 review

by Anne-Andree on 08/25/2015
We loved the cottage - the front porch and the fact that the dog seemed welcomed (and I already made publicity here in Quebec for this!). The owners are friendly and seem to care about the comments people give them to make improvements - this is great ! One small thing - fleece blankets and dog hair don't go well together ! 😉 Reception personnel is very friendly. We will definitely come back !

Nice place and nice time

by Denise on 08/24/2015
Over 7 years at water Crest and two in unit 143 D. Very special place the décor is very nice. the only thing did not work is the knives are not sharp and the sharpener they have is to finish after they been sharp... I am a cook. Love the place .A big thank you to Rachel and Claire.

water crest-unit 160

by Marie Claude on 08/20/2015
We loved the time we spent at the water crest. We were welcomed in french (our language) by a nice lady, the unit was clean and well furnished and the pool was heated. I hope we get to come back!

Great Vacation!!

by Terri-Lynn on 08/20/2015
We stayed there with our three kids ages 18 & two 14 year old girls. We had a great time. Its centrally located, not far from the beach we go to. The cottage was clean & comfortable. Both us and the kids had plenty to do while on site as well. Horseshoes, basketball court, pool & hot tub all got used! Looking to book for a week next year!

Our stay at Waterrest!!

by Paula on 08/20/2015
We have stayed at Watercrest cottages with our Grandchildren and Families for many years...We stayed at several of the units over the years..We are never disappointed with the staff or cleanliness of the cottages!! See you next year!!

Best Cottage Ever!

by Doreen on 08/19/2015
My family loved Unit 133! It could not have been more perfect for us! It was clean and spacious! We love the location too! Thank you very much!


by Annette on 08/19/2015
Cottage 102 was beautiful and spacious. It felt like home. The beach decor was beautiful. Upon check in the cottage was spotless. The pool and laundry room was clean. The grounds were beautiful. I have no complaints, only praise. Thank you for a wonderful experience.


by Hugh on 08/18/2015
Great unit, clean roomy well kept quiet and breezy. Best $$$$$ we spend every year, will be back next August for more of the same !

Not Your Father's WaterCrest

by Kenneth on 08/17/2015
I had been to the WaterCrest about ten years ago with my mother and father and had un unsatisfactory experience. The cottage was not all that clean when we got there, and the office was not very responsive to different requests. I had written detailed feedback to a review request back then, and got no response. This year, with my sister, all that was different. I was loth to rent again from WaterCrest, but decided to give you another chance. I'm so glad I did. I discovered that, literally, you are no longer my father's WaterCrest; you are much improved since he stayed there. Thank you for everything.

August 2015

by Katie on 08/17/2015
The unit was very cute, had a comfortable set up. Would definitely stay again.

comment on the service.

by Lucie on 08/15/2015
Good service. We will reserve for the next summer.

Love the cottage..

by Williams on 08/12/2015
We have had the same cottage for several years, each year upgrades are done, like the new TV in the main cottage. Since we won't have the same cottage next year, concerned the other 2 will live up to the same standards.

Unit 102

by Daniel on 08/12/2015
J'ai été tres satisfait du service,de l'hospitalité du site et de la propreté des lieux. L'unité 102 était parfaite pour nous 7 personnes, toutes les facilités y étaient en plus du wifi, ce quia plu aux enfants. Je recommande très fortement ce site a tous, à proximité de la plage, épicerie, pharmacie,... Merci à Claire pour son français, et ses recommandations de restos. 🙂

Fun with kids

by Christine on 08/12/2015
Loved our stay. It was very clean and comfortable and very reasonably priced. Would love to come back.

Nice little cottage

by Jerry on 08/07/2015
This cottage is fine for 2 people, any more then that it would be tight. The only draw back is there is no living room. The front porch does have a TV which is very nice in the evening. It sits 3 people the furniture could be a bit more comfortable. Both mattress's are new and very comfortable. Bathroom is all updated and clean. Kitchen is somewhat over stocked, but better that way then the opposite. Two thumbs up!

enjoyed our stay!

by John on 08/06/2015
We loved the cottage and the over all place. We stayed for 4 nights and the cottage fit all 5 of us no problem. The kids loved the pool. ~John

Review of hotel room over the office

by Evan on 08/05/2015
We loved it. Very clean and comfortable. Really liked the outdoor deck! Can't wait to come back! Also, we played shuffleboard and we appreciated the complete discs for the game! Yeah! Hope to see you soon, Karen, Evan and Maggie (the dog) Golann

Another great week!

by Todd & Katherine on 08/05/2015
The cabin we stayed in was beautiful! We had a great time! All the comforts of home. 🙂 Thank you

Cottage 116

by Isabelle on 08/04/2015
We really enjoyed our stay at your cottage. Everything was perfect and clean. We loved the veranda and the Wi-Fi for each cottages. Have a nice day !


by Maya on 08/04/2015
We have been coming to wells every summer for 15 years in what is now a group of at least 11. After stumbling upon this gem a few years ago it's the only place we stay now! It's clean and friendly while still feeling 'homey' enough to bring all the kids. The owners are so nice and always accommodating for our rather large group. Our families absolutely love watercrest!

great vacations!

by Delorme on 08/01/2015
Very cool place with The kids, nice park and pool 🙂 Laudromat and everything was very usefull! Great family vacation!


by Debbie on 07/30/2015
as always our cottage was immaculate which is the most important thing to me. everyone that we dealt with was kind, helpful and professional. can't wait until next year

Cabin 117

by Peter on 07/30/2015
The cabin is under new ownership. They have made quite a few changes. The colors are bright and cheerful. We always enjoy cabin 117 and we have been for 22 years. Our children have spent their vacation-life in that cabin and our dog has been coming on vacation with us for all of her life. We are sad that we will not be going back to cabin 117 because the new owners have decided that it is no longer a pet friendly cabin. We cannot leave this family member behind. We are looking forward to vacationing in a different cabin next year. We will happily give our money to anyone who welcomes us and our four-legged family member.

Guest review

by Debbie on 07/29/2015
Guest reviewVery accommodating staff who were very helpful. They greeted us with a smile and an attitude of being welcomed

great vacation in Maine

by Joyce on 07/29/2015
The folks at WaterCrest are great and always their to help. The cottages are clean and well equipped. We are looking forward to our next trip to Maine and WaterCrest.

Perfect stay in Cottage 102!

by Edward And Mary K. on 07/29/2015
As always we love staying in the Sullivan Cottage. From the moment of our arrival till the time our departure Life is good!!!!We were so pleased to book yet another year with Rachel in the office.We must acknowledge Rachel as another key piece to why we love Water crest. Last year we were heartbroken to think we would lose the cottage( yet happy for the Sullivan's if they wanted to retire). Over the next 5 months Rachel worked with us to find another cottage, and then by chance 102 became our slice of paradise again! Can't wait for 2016. Don't change a thing with customer service or the cottage. Everything is perfect!

Very nice vacation spot.

by Mark on 07/29/2015
We were very happy of our stay at your facility. All of the service we need at a good rate. The only note is the mattress in main bedroom has soft spots. Thanks!

cottage unit #122

by Allan And Kendra on 07/29/2015
We really enjoyed our stay at Water Crest. It is our third time staying there. We have stayed at three different cottages other years. It is very accommodating due to some of the cottages being pet friendly which is very important to us. The gas grills supplied at the cottages is also a plus to be able to use throughout the week. We will look forward to staying there again.

Great week in Wells, ME

by Patricia on 07/28/2015
Our stay at Watercrest Cottages was lovely. The grounds were clean, the cottage was well stocked and we felt like we were in a little home away from home. We loved having a full kitchen to cook when we wanted. And Watercrest was close to everything we wanted to visit--beaches, restaurants, grocery store, etc.

Cottage 145

by Joan on 07/28/2015
I absolutely look forward to my week at cottage 145 each year. The owner makes the cottage so welcoming, paying attention to every detail. My only problem is the Sunday to Sunday rental. Saturday to Saturday would be much preferred! Sincerely, Joan Treiber

Great Time

by Joe & Julianne on 07/22/2015
Our cabin was wonderful, as always. We had a problem with a leaky dishwasher, which was fixed right away after we reported it. Grounds and pool area are well-kept and very enjoyable. Office staff very friendly and helpful! Can't wait to come back!

Cottage Review

by Bill on 07/21/2015
Once again my family and I enjoyed another fabulous stay at Water crest cottages.We stayed in cottage 153 and I highly recommend this site.Spotless,it is ideally situated. Water Crest staff are extremely well organized,helpful and friendly. My only complaint,and this really has nothing to do with Water Crest,is the new trolley system.It takes forever to get from the cottages to Ogunquit.

Perfect for 2

by Douglas on 07/21/2015
Cabin is comfortable for 2 people. Great location for pool.

The owners did a wonderful job updating this cabin. It was a pleasure to stay there.

Good place to stay

by Alain on 07/19/2015
Beautiful cottage, beautiful clean site. Only one thing: recycling papers, plastics, etc is not well indicated.


by Barbara on 07/18/2015
We had a wonderful time during are stay . We plan on making many more visits and staying there also we will be letting are friends and family know what a nice clean place it was. Thank you

Great long weekend in Wells Maine

by Kathleen on 07/16/2015
We had a great time once again staying at the Watercrest Cottages.. Our cottage exceeded our needs. The kids enjoyed the pool each day and the location of the cottages is convenient to many area attractions. Thank you and we will see you next year.

I enjoyed my stay very much. Cottage was clean , neat. Couldn't ask for better. GIRL WORKING FRONT DESK ALL STAFF EXTREMELY PLEASANT. THANK SO MUCH.

Wonderful Unit

by Laurie on 07/14/2015
We have been staying here for over 7 years, and this is by far our favorite unit. The pool area is always very clean and well kept....wonderful place!

Pleasant Stay

by Irene on 07/11/2015
We have been to Maine 3 times and always stay in Watercrest Cottages and this is the best cottage we have stayed in. It feels homey and like the big bathroom. The whole complex is clean and quiet. Although my friend said that the supposedly Queen bed does not feel like it's Queen. The Ladies in the office are very friendly and helpful. Inspite of the electrical issue on July 5 (good it didnt last long) overall we enjoyed our stay.

Unit 103

by Ernie And Paula on 07/11/2015
We were very happy with the clean condition and well cared for cabin 103. We have been coming to Maine for years and its nice to have a unit that is cared for by it's owners. We have registered for next year in this cabin already. Again, thank you and we were very impressed with the overall excellent condition of this unit.


by Laurent on 07/09/2015
We rented unit #140 To our surprise it was more than what we expected. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen had everything you can ask for. And a nice gallery, with table for four... Highly recommended

Had a great time

by Clavelle on 07/08/2015
Everything was perfect. Had a great time! Cottage is very well equipped and the location is good.

We will be back.

by Coleen on 07/08/2015
What a fun place thank you

Girls' Week

by Carol on 07/07/2015
Watercrest Cottages is a wonderful place to stay. Cottage 104 is clean and tastefully decorated. Rachel is an exceptional customer service gal; her help has made every visit special. Location is excellent. Each time we visit we feel as if we are coming home. My Mom is 92 and we (her 4 daughters) delight in bringing her to Watercrest each year. Thank you!

Review of cottage 109 and Water Crest

by Evan on 07/07/2015
We had an awesome time in Sue and Skip's cottage and at the resort. We loved everything. We played a lot of shuffle board but the game itself is missing one puck. Other than that, it was a spectacular week! Karen and Evan Golann

cottage 134

by Betty on 07/04/2015
cottage is clean and comfortable,staff always around and helpful,pool and hot tub very clean and water temperature around 80. Very nice! Would definitely come back.

Perfect vacation

by Tina on 07/01/2015
We had the best vacation at the watercrest in cottage 145. The cottage was the perfect size for our family. It was very clean when we arrived. Our kids loved it there and slept awesome in their room. Loved the fully equipped kitchen. Cant wait to vacation in this unit again next year. Thank you for the perfect place for our family to vacation.

Unit 116

by Stephen on 07/01/2015
Very clean and comfortable!!! I would suggest the layout of the furniture on the front porch be changed so guests can sit and look out at the grounds---not have your backs to them.

Family Vacation

by Peggy on 07/01/2015
My family and I as well as extended family members very much enjoyed our Maine vacation at Water Crest. This year we brought with us 3 new babies,who are part of the 5th generation to enjoy your beautiful state. We all plan on continuing this tradition for years to come. We love Water Crest for it's clean,family friendly accomodations.

Another Year

by Gary on 07/01/2015
We have been staying at the Watercrest for a number of years now for our family's annual Maine vacation. My wife's family has been coming to the Wells area for over 60 years and the tradition continues. Rachel Morton has always been friendly,responsive, and professional in responding to our needs and requests in putting our vacation week together and we are already reserved for 2016.

Family Reunion

by Stacey on 06/30/2015
This Cottage and Watercrest in general exceeded all expectations. The cottage was represented well and everything was as stated on the website, the kitchen was amazingly stocked and didn't lack for anything. The bathroom was re-tiled and beautiful. We could not have been happier and look forward to our next visit.

We like our time at the cottage

by Sylvain on 06/30/2015
The place was nice and clean, the supplies were over what we were expecting. We had a great time, the pool was nice and the size of the cottage was enough for 2 adult and a kid. The porch is really the best aspect of the cottage, I really was great to pass some time their with the brezze. Thank you.

enjoyable stay

by Lois on 06/29/2015
It is well kept up and clean. We enjoyed our stay. It is near everything. Would not hesitate to go back again. The grounds are very nice and have play areas for children.

Cozy and Comfortable

by Kerry on 06/28/2015
Kitchen supplies could be better; not one mixing bowl or baking pan in cupboard to make Strawberry Shortcakes in pick-your-own season.


by Kerry on 06/28/2015
Nice airy layout


by Lisa on 06/24/2015
This was are third time staying there, we loved it. This was are favorite room. The only thing the room needed was a room darkening drape because that sun come's up real early this time of year! Can't wait to go back! Thank you.

Another great year

by Penny on 06/24/2015
we had a great time. The cottage was well equipped and clean. Our requests for small maintenance repairs were dealt with quickly. Thanks again and we will see you next year. Penny, Devon and May

We were very impressed with our lovely room.The bed, sofa and chair were very comfortable. Also we enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi.

Cottage Stay

by Dena on 05/29/2015
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay at Water Crest in unit 116. The cottage was perfect for the two of us. It was cozy and well decorated. I loved sitting out on the sun porch in the mornings. We traveled with our pup and enjoyed using the dog leash stake that was there! We were able to grill and attach her to the leash with no worries of her wondering too far. It was perfect! I would definitely recommend this cottage for couples or small families and those traveling with their four legged friends.

one week stay

by James on 05/22/2015
Rachel and Claire were both excellent hosts ! Look forward to staying with you again in the fall.

Spring Sisters Weekend

by Carolyn on 05/11/2015

Maine Trip

by Thomas on 10/16/2014
We loved the Studio Unit 140....better than a Hotel room, very quiet and comfortable , Very Clean , Thank You for a great stay. Hope to see you next year...

Beautiful Autumn Trip

by Tammy on 10/13/2014
We rented the cabin on short notice, an impromptu trip to celebrate my husband's birthday. The cabin was perfect as a launch spot to visit the lighthouses, beach and Portland. We really enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and the year-round residents were friendly. The cabin was very comfortable and was furnished with everything we needed. We had a great time and will definitely go back!

Outstanding Weekend

by Rodney on 10/09/2014
Always enjoy staying at Water Crest Cottages. The thoughtfulness and care of the staff for our weekend being a great one was - again - outstanding. Thank you.

A+ Vacation

by Dominic on 10/02/2014
Our stay at WaterCrest Cottages was perfect. The cottage was very clean and well supplied. Having a well stocked kitchen and a clean and working grill made it a pleasure to to have a few family meals in what felt like home. The heated pool and spa make WaterCrest Cottages a easy choice.

peaceful visit

by Alice on 10/02/2014
We had a wonderful week at Water Crest. Appreciate that the place is dog friendly. Cottage clean, everything we needed was there. We will definitely keep in mind for our next trip to Maine to eat lobster~~

Perfect Home for a Perfect Weekend

by Susan on 10/01/2014
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful cottage. The tile floors and beautiful beach decor made us feel like we were truly "away". It was comfortable for 4 adults to share the space. The shower was AMAZING after a day at the beach. Our only trick was trying to prepare meals on the limited counterspace. The pool was still warm this late in the season and the spa was a great temperature. I would definitely return for another great stay.

Watercrest September 2014 stay review The Barton's

by Pamela on 09/27/2014
This is not the first time we have been to Water Crest, but it is the first time in several years and it was great. Just as we remembered. We brought our little dog, Emily, which was very important to us. It is great to see that there are so many units now that are pet friendly. We had a great time and our unit worked perfectly for us. Thank you very much. PS the woman who works at the reception desk is just wonderful. So friendly and welcoming.

Looking forward to our next stay

by Cheryl on 09/24/2014
Had a wonderful stay. Met some very nice people including a few who owned a couple of the cottages there. Very quiet, clean, loved the fact that people picked up after their dogs, mine included. Bandit made a lot of new doggie friends he was completely at home in 109. I would like to thank Sue and Skip for sharing their home with us for that most wonderful week. Any time you need a sitter for the cottage let us know !!. Had the pool and hot tub all to myself one day wow amazing, grounds, pool area all looked great. It was so relaxing I wished i been staying for another week. Already have sent a request in for next year. Very cozy cottage, so loved the porch to. Thank you again Sue and Skip for sharing your home with us. Bandit gives this cottage a high 5 Paw rating!! Sincerely, Cheryl, Lori and Bandit (woof)

Our Vacation

by Norma on 09/20/2014
We spent an enjoyable week in our cottage and hope to return agin next year. This cottage has a couch and 2 lounge chairs. For just the 2 of us, it would be ok without the couch. Just a suggestion....No complaints - Every thing was fine. Regards, Norma & Ernie

Unit 153

by Michelle on 09/16/2014
The cottage was very nice,and loved the gas stove.The staff in the office are so nice and very helful.This is our 2nd time staying at Watercrest and would stay again in the future.One of the pluses are that T.V.s in the bedrooms.We usually have a few family members come with us,so we always need more than 1 T.V.

Comments on Unit 109

by Linda on 09/11/2014
My husband and I stayed in Unit 109 for a week and were totally satisfied. This was our first, but definitely not our last, trip to Watercrest. We have already reserved this cottage for next year. Everything we needed was there, including treats and accessories for our dog. It was a perfect vacation.

The best vacation with my family is at Watercrest, we have been coming there for many years. I have unit 140 which is the best ever, I have stayed at other units and this one by far is it. love the new bed and furniture. It is always very neat and clean. I look forward to it every year. I told Rachel to book me for the rest of my years here. Rachel is the best, always helpful and smiling no matter what is going on, and she always goes out of her way. The only thing that needs to be done is a ceiling on the porch. You can't sit there when it rains. Last year we had bubbles in our food which the kids were doing upstairs. This year we had crumbs falling down on the table. Other than that its the best. My family takes two other cottages and they love it also.

Cabin 151

by Cheryl on 09/03/2014
It was a great stay for myself and my family. Very quiet. Kitchen was fully equipped. The only thing we could think of were a few chairs for outdoor seating. Thank you so much for your help I. Making it a great time. Cheryl

4 night stay

by Michelle on 09/02/2014
There really isn't anything to complain about with this cottage. For my family (2 adults, a 2 year old and 4 year old), there was plenty of room. Also the owners have done a great job of stocking the necessities: pots, pans, dishes, etc. my husband an I enjoyed sitting on the porch at night after the kids went to bed. We hope to come up again next year and stay in the same cottage.

Great time

by Debbie on 09/01/2014
Hello, We had a wonderful time as always. We have enjoyed returning every year. I are looking foreword to the 2015 season.

UNIT 112

by Rosemary on 08/27/2014
Very cozy. loved the porch and deck. well kept and clean. perfect for children. plenty of room to play. being on a little cul de sac was a plus.

Extremely happy with our stay here.

by Arlene on 08/27/2014
My fiancé and I just returned from a week here. We couldn't be happier with the friendly, helpful staff. Our cottage was very neat and clean and met our needs perfectly. We loved being able to save money by eating some of our meals here and not having to go out all the time. The proximity to towns and beaches completed our enjoyable experience. We would definitely return.

Clean, well-located, friendly staff, excellent amenities

by Carol on 08/26/2014
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Every year you continue to update and improve the grounds and cottages to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable stay. See you next year 🙂

Cottage was immaculate we had everything we needed. Pool was great as was the hot tub. Really enjoyed our visit and will be back again. Thank you.


by Jean on 08/25/2014
"Our" Cottage is our perfect summer vacation spot! Cottage is always clean and ready for us. Excellent staff on site and we love the pool,central laundry facility, and location of our unit.

Love this place!

by Damien on 08/20/2014
This was our second year staying at Watercrest and it just keeps getting better. The cottage we stayed in is well maintained and has the perfect mixture modern amenities and rustic cottage life. The staff is very family friendly and make it a priority to provide the best vacation experience possible. Even if you spend a day in the cottage there's plenty to do with the pool, hot tub, shuffle board and playground. I foresee Watercrest being a yearly destination and I highly recommend it.

Great Place to Staky

by Sarah on 08/20/2014

Our stay at the Watercrest Cottages

by Daniel on 08/19/2014
We are very satisfied about our last stay at the Watercrest Cottages. The unit was clean and beautiful and we had enough place in the cottage for our group. It's always a pleasure to stay at the Watercrest.

Great stay

A little small but we had a great time there!

See you next year

by Williams on 08/17/2014
As like every, the cottage was great, first time as a second one, liked the layout. Will see you next year. Cheers

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at Water Crest. Very Clean!!! The pool was wonderful and the kids enjoyed playing on the pirate ship and the swing set. Friendly staff!

Room 114 Aug 2-9/14

by Gary & Arlene on 08/13/2014
Gary & I just want to say thank you for a lovely week in Maine with our dog Cooper, If you will have us,we would love to come back as usual the same time next year if all goes well. I am still visiting my Mom with Alzeihmer every day so it was a great break to go to the ocean and restaurants every day and night.We loved the new 50" TV. The garden was very nicely designed and the smaller table in the sunporch gave us more room. Maybe it was done last year,but we could not come as our older dog was not well.Thanks again and see you in 2015. Arlene & Gary & Cooper Marsh

Wonderful Time at WaterCrest

by Elizabeth on 08/13/2014
We had a wonderful time at WaterCrest. We had extended family in three cottages for the week, and it was a great family vacation spot. Everyone could have their own space but also get together any time. The pool and hot tub were awesome, and there were plenty of games and activities for adults and kids alike. The cottages and the entire complex were very clean. Also, there is a lot to do in the area and WaterCrest is conveniently located. There's whale watching, great seafood restaurants, a beautiful beach, and cute towns like Kennebunkport all minutes away! I would definitely recommend WaterCrest to anyone!

À very pleasant stay!

by Philippe on 08/12/2014
Good day, As mentioned during our Check out, we were quite impressed by the level of commodities that were offered in the cottage (unit #136). The kitchen was well equiped and we didn't miss anything, a fair amount of towels was available for the whole family and everything was very clean. We had friends staying nearby and we have to say that our cottage, while being smaller, had more commodities. Ex: microwave, toaster, video, etc... We really enjoyed our vacation in Wells, Watercrest Cottages will definitely be somewhere we will look for availability next time we return. Thank you, have a great day. P. Le Sage

Great experience!

by Kristine on 08/08/2014
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Watercrest. The cottage was very nice and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful, including during phone interactions prior to the visit. We also felt as though the community was safe and quiet. Thank you!

Our 2014 Visit

by Beth on 08/07/2014
We continue to be very happy! We were pleasantly surprised to find new mattresses on the beds and new lighting! The Pirate Ship added to the playground is amazing! It kept my grandchildren entertained for hours! Very family friendly atmosphere and the staff were great!

Cottage 154

by Kimberly on 08/06/2014
Fabulous! We love that Mike and Carolyn take the time and effort to constantly upgrade our cottage - this year we came back to all new appliances! It makes vacation even better, when you arrive knowing that you will be just as comfortable there, as you are at home...thank you for many happy vacation years!

A Mile Away cottage

by Patty on 08/06/2014
We have stayed in this cottage for several years now. The kitchen is well stocked to meet your needs and the cottage is roomy and can easily accommodate a family. The morning sun on the enclosed porch with a cup of coffee is a great way to start your day and the beach is just a short drive away!

Cottage 124

by Kelly on 08/05/2014
We stayed in Cottage 124 for a week and had the best vacation ever! The cottage was perfect and close to the pool and picnic tables. We will definitely be going back and will not stay anywhere else!! Thank you for a great vacation!

Cabin 117

by Peter on 08/01/2014
We love the cabin and think of it as our second home for one week in the summer. Thank you for the wonderful experience. We appreciate that the Morses' take such good care of us! And that we are treated so well by the Water Crest staff when we are there. We are looking forward to next year. Thank you!

July 2014

by Marilyn on 07/30/2014
Have stayed here before. Fabulous vacation cottage directly across from the playground which has great space for volleyball, soccer, badmitten, frisbee, etc. Loved that it had basketball, horse shoes,and shuffleboard as well. The new pirate ship playground was a nice surprise and really enjoyed by my son. Heated pool and hot tub were awesome and clean. My only suggestion would be that cottage owners need to invest in better mattresses (queen in 103 and queen in 105). Otherwise, loved it! We will return! Marilyn Pearson

Unit 152

by Michele on 07/30/2014
Beautiful cabin! The owners obviously take great pride in this unit and it shows. Very cozy and welcoming. I hope that visitors take care of it in the future. We had a great time.

Loved it!

by Valerie on 07/28/2014
Very pleasant this "sunflower" unit! Everything was lovely. This was our second stay and really loved it! Our fisrt stay was in 2012 in cottage 150, we prefered #137. A lot of furniture included (pots and pans, dish soap, toilet paper, saran wrap, disposable tableware, etc.) really appreciated. Nice pool, nice new playground area. They pick up the garbage every day. Small things : The AC was not that cool. I would remove the carpet in the bedroom and living room. Wi-fi in the unit was not working well. Thanks for all!

I had an excellent time in Wells. The customer service was helpful when you have not been to Wells before. When you are traveling alone you need that customer service to have a good time.

Best family vacation so far!

by Cheryl on 07/24/2014
We rented 8 units for a family vacation ... all units were very, very clean, well equipped and roomy....the entire property is well maintained. The staff was very nice to work with (thank you, Rachel) Best vacation so far!

Great Family Vacation!

by Kelly on 07/19/2014
This was our first time in Wells Maine. Myself, my husband, my mother and two of my children (plus our two four legged children!) had a wonderful time. The pool and hot tub were perfect, the cottage was exactly what we expected and fit our needs perfectly. The central location to all surrounding towns and activities cannot be beat! People were friendly the staff were kind and responsive which can be hard to find these days. I value good customer service above all. We will return next year and we will recommend Watercrest cottages to all our friends.

Back for the 4th time!

by Ellen on 07/16/2014
As usual I thoroughly enjoyed my vacation at Water Crest. I loved the big porch in unit 148. I enjoy the peace and quiet there which allows me so much relaxation. Also so happy with the gas grill that was in very good shape. Was a little disappointed in that I had to buy a few things, dish soap, toilet paper, measuring spoons and cups, but that is really minor. Was also very happy to see the addition of a lift in the pool to allow access by someone with disabilities. The office staff is very helpful, coming to our rescue when we couldn't figure out the shower! I am sure we will be back for a 5th visit!

Sunshine, beach and lobster!

by Jennie on 07/14/2014
We had a delightful 2 nights at Water Crest. Our cottage was homey, clean, comfortable and private; the perfect base from which we could wander out to the beach, book stores and restaurants. Especially nice was the fact that we could cook a lobster and clam feast for ourselves at a fraction of what it would have cost to enjoy it in a restaurant, and then not have to drive home! We will definitely be back.

Propre, bien équipé

by Alayn on 07/09/2014
Convient très bien pour 4 adultes, les lits étaient très confortables, cuisine bien equipée. Le screen porch est de bonne dimension et permet d'y manger facilement et ainsi profiter de l'extérieur. Petit bémol, le bain s'écoulait difficilement, c'est ce qui amène l'évaluation a la baisse. Le cottage est bien situé (profitez de Mike's market juste en face pour vous procurer des homards cuits ou non a emporter, absolument délicieux.

Lovely place!

by Bethany on 07/09/2014
We LOVE Watercrest Cottages! Always have an amazing stay there. Great for kids and adults. Always able to find something to do, and the staff are awesome! We will always stay there when we go to Maine!

Rich and Paula Parker's review....

by Paula And Rich on 07/09/2014
Excellent time as usual! We love Water Crest, and have come to love #154 as well. We have been coming to you for many years, and will continue to do so...same week every year. See you next year 4th July week(even though the 4th falls on a Saturday).

Fun, Friendly Family Atmosphere

by Darlene on 07/09/2014
It was a great first visit and we were welcomed warmly and had a very pleasant stay over the holiday weekend. The unit was lovely and every person we met, whether they worked there or were also guests was wonderful. Thank you for a fun holiday weekend.

Cottage 149

by Nancy on 07/01/2014
We stayed in this cottage for one week and found it to have more than enough room , it is in a great location a short drive to the beach, shops , restaurants and ogunquit and the marginal way. You can tell the inside was recently renovated and loved the large closed in porch, which included books and games.


by Bourgault on 06/26/2014
It was very clean and appropriate for adults ans childs. We has a lot of fun. The only negative thing is that there is no sheets on the beds and we didn't know before we arrived.

Wonderful trip

by Tim on 06/25/2014
Everything was great for our week with you. We had a lot of family in other cottages and there were no complaints. Thank you for helping us have a wonderful reunion

family reunion

by Mike on 06/25/2014
We had a great time. All the office staff was so amazing and helpful. The cottages were a delight and the handicapped resources were wonderful. Rachel has been very helpful over the last several months leading up to our trip. She is amazing, friendly, a problem solver and very detailed oriented. We hope to return again. Thanks for a great week.

Beautiful property!

by Mary on 06/24/2014
My family and I really enjoyed our stay. Unit was very clean and beds were comfortable. The grounds were impeccable! The favorite for my grandchildren was the beautiful pool. I will definitely be back!

June 8 - June 15, 2014

by Scott on 06/18/2014
Our stay from June 8 - June 15 was great! We had a great time while we stayed at Watercrest and will be back next year for sure in the same two bedroom cottage which is 101.

Always love to stay at Watercrest. Bedrooms in this cottage were difficult for someone like Mom who's handicapped but other than that everything was great!!! Thanks, Judy

Great weekend getaway

by Elizabeth on 10/17/2013
The unit was simple but certainly functional, and it was perfect for our weekend needs. The kids enjoyed the playground and the heated pool. The cottages were convenient to the Highway and to the beach.

Great Place to stay

by Dominic on 10/17/2013
Been bringing my family to Wells to celebrate Columbus weekend for25 years. Have stayed in many of the local motels and cottages in the area. Water Crest has been our choice for the past 5 years. It's clean, friendly, quiet, reasonable, and located close to the beach and some of the best eateries in the area. The outdoor heated pool and new spa are a wonderful addition. We absolutely love the place.?

Great place to stay

by Thomas on 10/17/2013
We were just driving by and thought we might see if you had a vacancy. So glad we did. This is the nicest, cleanest place with such friendly, accommodating staff! We will be sure to reserve a room at your place on our next annual trek to Maine. We have told all our friends in NY how great your place is.


by Gayle on 10/14/2013
My mother and I were thrilled to find the cottage we selected was beyond our expectations. It is beautifully decorated, spotless clean, and has all the ammenities. We were so delighted with everything. Thank you for making our visit one to remember.

Great Mini Vacation

by Pamela on 10/14/2013
A very quaint cottage. Every thing we needed for our stay. It was very conveniently located for our plans. We would stay here again, especially in the off season.

Midweek Getaway

by Stella on 10/10/2013
My husband and I recently stayed here with our dog Jingles. The cottage was cozy and peaceful. We loved sitting out on the porch having our morning coffee. Jingles loved the treats left by the owner, and made a couple of new doggie friends while we were there. We had a wonderful time and we will definitely come back soon.

Adorable Cottage

Our stay was great. The weather was perfect. We were alittle disappointed in the view toward Atlantic Ave and the Marsh. Unless you were standing you could not see the view. Everything else was great.

Water Crest Cottage No 109

by Denise on 09/24/2013
We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. We hope to visit the area again and would definitely stay here again.

Had a very good experience at Watercrest

by Geralynn on 09/21/2013
I really enjoyed the pool and the hot tub. I will rent from Patrick again if I am in the area. If I was to come back with family and my dog I would rent a cottage. I like the fact you have a kitchenette in your room. So much better than staying at a hotel. Everyone was very friendly and I liked the location.

new review

by Jean on 09/18/2013
Hi - recently stayed in cabin #124 for 1-1/2 weeks - we really enjoy that little cabin - well equipped, clean and bright and quiet in early Sept. Just love Maine - especially that area and sure hope to get back (have been visiting this area for many, many years)

Nice and comfortable unit

by Denise on 09/14/2013
Well kept and clean cottage. Pleasant little porch to enjoy morning coffee. Well equipped kitchen. Would highly recommend the place. Watercrest Cottages is well located,a short ride to anything you might need. Friendly and helpful staff. Special thanks to Barbara who gave us excellent suggestions on places to visit and where to go out for dinner. She has been very nice and friendly and made our stay even more enjoyable.


by Sandra on 09/11/2013
Enjoyed our short stay and staff was very helpful! I have rented for some years now and LOVE IT!

Very Comfortable

by Natina on 09/11/2013
Party of 5 - the cottage was very comfortable and spacious.

Clean and comfy cabin

by Vanessa on 09/11/2013
We stayed in 155, our two full grown Labradors were with us. My concern renting site unseen was cleanliness, I feared bringing two flea infested pets home. My fears were squashed entering the cabin. It was well maintained, clean and cozy. My only suggestion is a purchase.... garbage can with lid for kitchen, especially for a pet friendly cabin. We will be back... great stay:)


by Pierre on 09/10/2013
Everything was clean. The pool and jacuzi was great

great place

by James on 09/10/2013
We had a great time and the room was very clean and had everything we needed. Plenty of room and good amenities.

Best place yet

by Laura on 09/09/2013
This is the 3rd year that we have stayed at Watercrest, and every year we have had a wonderful time. Cabins are always clean and well stocked. Staff is friendly!. Very quiet, yet at the same time close to everything. The only thing I would change/add is some kind of pay-to-view movie service.

We love Maine

by Annie on 09/07/2013
The place was very clean and had everything we need. It was quiet and everything was convenient. We had a wondeful weekend!!! We love Maine!!!!!

Nice cottage everything we needed

by Eric on 09/05/2013
Niçe cottage, big enough, comfortable, etc.. the things i would add is : some hooks to hang sweaters , coats etc, also, fan on the ceiling in each bedrooms ( like the one in the porch ) . The cottage is near the pool, we liked that.

Great way to end the summer!

by Diane on 09/04/2013
We've been staying at Watercrest cottages now for 3yrs, each year we've had a different cottage. Our favorite of all has been #152. Everything was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. We have made some nice memories. We noticed what a lovely job of resurfacing the pool & hot tub was made. We've noticed that whether it's night or day coming onto the grounds of Watercrest has been peaceful & quiet. A great place to relax & enjoy the coast of Maine! Your friends from NJ.

Clean, friendly, great location !

by Isabelle on 09/03/2013
Very friendly staff, great location off RTE 1. Would highly recommend.(Cottage 107 of course, we did not see the interiors of the other cottages.)

Home away from home

by Karen on 09/01/2013
As always our stay was excellent. We feel right at home in unit 145 and that's why we keep coming back year after year. Hope to see you again next year.

Unit 104

by Lucy on 08/31/2013
We enjoyed our stay at Water Crest Cottage #104. Very neat, clean and set up nicely for children and adults. Our grandchildren enjoyed the many books and games. Hope to back next year.

Everything was above what we expected. Equipment is A1, geographical location is good. Thank you very much


by Elizabeth on 08/29/2013
Loved the cottage. The staff was excellent.Have already asked for a week next year in the same unit. The updates to the porch were great we spent a lot of time sitting out there. Thanks for a great vacation!!!!!!!

Unit 103

by Robert on 08/28/2013
me and my family had a very good time in maine this year and our stay at watercrest was a pleasant one. we had car trouble upon our arrival and the management of watercrest was awesome in that they allowed us to check in early so we could unload or vehicles, and get the problem car fixed!!!


by Marilu on 08/28/2013
We have a great time at watercrest during our vacation time. Anything that may come up is taken care of fast and pleasantly. Thank You All Again for a great week. Hope to see you soon.thinking of a fall getaway.

Thank you all

by Beverly on 08/28/2013
(this is a repeat of the e-mail I'd already sent, the family and extended family had a total of 6 units, each one was unique and clean. Everyone had a great stay) Cheryl, just a note to let you know what a wonderful, albeit short, stay we had at the cottages. Was very impressed when my daughter said they had some "plumbing issues" that were graciously and promptly taken care of! Kudos to you all for helping to make my granddaughter's wedding even more joyful. With thanks from the whole family! Bev

Guest feedback questionaire

by Annette on 08/26/2013
The only problem we encountered was that some people staying there were under the impression that the hot tub was a "kiddie pool". No matter what time we went, except for after 8pm the tub was full of kids. other than that our stay was wonderful. Thank you.

Great Stay!

by Jane on 08/26/2013
We had a great time at Watercrest Cottages. Our cottage was spacious and clean. The amenities were great; we played shuffleboard every night and enjoyed the pool as well. We plan to go back next summer!

Great place for families to stay

by Katie on 08/22/2013
We will be back next year! Very happy with our visit!

great time and great weather

by Edward & Beth on 08/21/2013
we loved our stay with you. the cottage was very clean and we did appreciate the trash being picked up daily= one place we stayed they only picked up once a week- It was quiet and the children seemed to have a good time but were not overbearing thanks for the great vacation the Albee's

Coming back next year

by Kym on 08/21/2013
This is our 2nd consecutive year and has become an annual vacation for us !!! The kids love having the freedom to play with the activities provided and we feel safe that they can. We look forward all year to coming back. There was a positive, noticeable difference that there is new management....always very pleasant and helpful !! The only thing we would like to recommend is keeping the pool hours open for adults (only) past 9pm when the pool closed. It would have been nice to relax in the hot tub but by the time we could pool access was closed.

Unit 153

by Jaimie on 08/20/2013
Everything was great again this year- no issues at all. We had a wonderful stay.

A pleasant place

by Diane on 08/20/2013
As last year, we have enjoyed very much to stay at Water Crest. Everything in the cottage was perfect,clean and well equiped. The entire site is pleasant and well maintained.

Comments on our stay

by Roslyn on 08/20/2013
We have been staying at the Watercrest for many years and have never been disappointed. Thank you for the great service. Unit 126 was just perfect for us, very clean and had everything we needed to make our holiday enjoyable. Thank you once again and hope to see you next summer. Best regards, Roslyn

great stay!

by Jessica on 08/16/2013
It was awesome...we enjoyed our stay a lot

Casavant's Review of #154

by John on 08/14/2013
We had a great stay and loved our cottage! It was clean and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes/pans etc. We loved the porch and spent a lot of family time there. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub as well. Thank you.

Cottage #145

by Michael on 08/14/2013
The owners of cottage #145 are the very best hosts. Their cottage is bright, well decorated, and extremely clean. My wife and I always look forward to our time in Maine, but especially at the Cronins. Michael Phelps

Almost Perfect!

by Holly on 08/14/2013
Almost everything about our stay was perfection. The cottage was cute, clean, comfortable and affordable. My husband and I particularly enjoyed our second-floor deck, with a table, chairs and view of the pool. We even had a little peak of the ocean! The location was convenient - we were in town for a wedding in Kennebunkport. The staff was super friendly, making the place feel more like a bed-and-breakfast than a typical motel. My only complaint (and it's minor) is that when we checked in, the unit had been stocked with only a quarter-roll of toilet paper. That wasn't even enough to last the night, and I ended up taking two trips to the office for more (they'd only give me a roll at a time). The unit came with plenty of other essentials (towels, wash cloths, dishes, etc) so I expected there to be toilet paper, as well. If this is an issue for some reason, guests should be asked ahead-of-time to bring their own toilet paper so we're not taking daily trips to the office for more.

First time in this unit

by Williams on 08/14/2013
We had stayed in the unit next door but enjoyed unit 105 better, reason, had WiFi and the second flat screen in the porch area. Brighter atmosphere as well.

Great time

by Debbie on 08/13/2013
We had a wonderful time and look forward to going back. This was not the first time we stayed and it won't be our last. I know it is the place to be when my 8 year old grandson meets up with friends he met at Water Crest the first time we stayed. Plus he gains new friends each time.

Great Vacation Week

by Greg on 08/13/2013
This unit was very clean and in great shape. The kitchen and bathroom are totally redone. The living room and bedrooms are cozy and had everything our two little children needed. The complex does a nice job of keeping up the grounds as well. We love the location as it is a short ride to 3 or 4 different beaches.


by Chantal on 08/12/2013
It was very nice. We love our stay. It was very clean. Thank you,

summer vacation

by Alice on 08/12/2013
I have been staying at Watercrest for many years. As usual, my stay was very pleasant, the setting is very family oriented, friendly atmosphere. I will be back next year.


by Donna on 08/11/2013
We truly enjoyed our stay at Water Crest. The only complaint I have is that lawn chemicals were applied around the pool area while we were there. I feel this should be done either early morning or later in the day. Other than that we look forward to staying there again. Thank you for everything.

great vacation stay

by June on 08/11/2013
We truly enjoyed our stay. Everything was great. This is a very family friendly place, and the grounds are very clean.

I will definitely be back...

by Lee on 08/11/2013
I really enjoyed my stay. My sister, Debbie Gibbs, has stayed with you a couple of times and has always raved about the place. I came this year to visit with them and truly enjoyed your property! I will definitely be back. Sincerely, Lee Pearce

You made our vacation enjoyable.

by Sandra on 08/10/2013
We love staying at Watercress. It is in a great location and we enjoy being able to eat dinner at the cottage. We look forward to going again next year!

one week vacation in Wells, Maine

by Vicki & Thomas on 08/10/2013
Really liked the decor very neat and clean. Loved the renovated kitchen and front porch. Cottage had everything we needed. Even though we were near the highway it was very quiet.

We enjoy our stay in Unit 145

by Francis on 08/08/2013
The cottage is always immaculate when we arrive. We keep coming back to this one because we like it. Every year the owners make some improvements to the cottage that add to the enjoyment of staying there.

Better than before.

by Glyn on 08/08/2013
As always we enjoyed the time at the Watercrest with the rest of our family. We have been vacationing there for 30+ years with only one hitch when someone confused our name with another party and cancelled out reservation. The new crew at Watercrest is great. Our thanks to the owners of #135 for allowing our aging dog who is blind as has Diabetes to join us. He thanks you also and he had a great time.

first class

by William on 08/07/2013
The room was wonderful. We never heard any Loud anything, though there were.people.. Everywhere. I have recommended your motel Already and will continue to do so. Thank you for the best room we have had in Maine.

Watercrest review

by Patty on 08/07/2013
This is a very good unit for the price and the location is very convenient to the beach, dining and shops. It is comfortable and spacious with all the kitchen equipment we need. We typically bring our own linens and towels so I can't comment on the quality of those provided by the Watercrest. The unit is always clean upon our arrival. We have stayed at the Watercrest for almost 25 years and hope to continue to do so for many more years! It is a great place for family reunions!

good place

by Louis on 08/07/2013
we had a nice stay.

Great week in Wells

by Timothy on 08/07/2013
We had a wonderful week in Wells while staying at the Water Crest Cottages. Our unit was very quiet and comfy. The cottage had everything we needed. The linen bag was well worth the expense. Location was great very close to the beach and stores. Coming home after a long day at the beach and cooking a BBQ was just awesome. We enjoyed our week very much and will definitely come back.

great days

by Daniel on 08/06/2013
nous avons adoré notre sejour chez-vous a l'année prochaine merci.

Unit 159

by Raquel on 08/06/2013
The room was very clean and we liked the layout of this cottage better than unit 160. It would have been nice if the unit had a second TV in the bedroom. Our daughter takes the TV over with Nickelodeon at night and in the mornings. It's a nice deck to sit out on while grilling or watching our daughter play out back. The playground area could stand an upgrade though.

Thank you!

by Denis on 08/05/2013
We have a great stay a the watercrest cottages. Everything was just right and just what we need.

We'll be back!!

by Christina on 08/05/2013
We arrived at Wells with no reservations and I was a little panicky. We ended up staying at WaterCrest for 4 nights - 2 nights in a cottage and 2 nights in a motel unit. We were so thrilled that we will definitely be back next year (this time reserving in advance lol). The grounds are spotless, the cabins are gorgeous and even the motel room was great. The staff is super friendly! Just an overall great experience. See you next year!!


by Phyllis on 08/05/2013

Awesome Place

by Tina on 08/03/2013
We had a great time at your facility. This will be the place we stay every time we visit. Thank you for everything. The Coates Family


by Debra on 08/02/2013
Had a nice stay. It was clean and pretty quiet.


by Marilyn on 07/31/2013
We filled out one of these reviews and left it on the kitchen table in our cottage the day we left.

Unit #117 (type D)

by Sandra on 07/31/2013
This was our 5th year in Unit #117 and my family always enjoy the stay. I have reserved 3 weeks next year because we love the location and the staff is so helpful. I want to thank Mr. Morse for the porch upgrade of furniture and hope that he will continue making improvements.

Great week again.

by Jean Patrick on 07/31/2013
For the second year in a row we absolutlely loved staying in this unit. A lot of amenities and we really enjoyed the new tv in the porch area with a great selection of channel. We hope to be back soon. As for the resort, the internet service is really slow... Needs to be boosted...

Great stay, wonderful time.

by Jean Patrick on 07/31/2013
Wonderful unit, we had a great stay. Just a few pointer: we would have like to have more extra blankets as some night were a bit cold, not a lot of storage space for food, and not much cutlery and some of poor quality ( knives not very sharp). As for the resort, Internet service is really slow... Need to be boosted.

Unit 154

by Aannette on 07/31/2013
Our unit was very clean and well organized...the new carpeting and added furniture were a great addition to 154 . We plan on returning next year!!!!

Unit 101

by Robert on 07/28/2013
My wife and I have stayed here many years now and have noticed improvements made by the owner to the cottage specific to my wife's and my needs. Very thoughtful. Mostly this year staff changes are better and the overall running of Watercrest seems to be better. Please consider a handicap lift for pool/jaccuzzi as my wife is in a wheelchair. This would be a nice addition not only for us but in general since both units 101 and 102 are handicap accessible units. Overall we had a great vacation, we just returned home a little early to relax and stay cool. ps thank you very much for unit owner letting me use his basement for my motorcycle, this was above and beyond!

Very nice unit

by Martin on 07/22/2013
Very nice unit. Convenient. Great!

Wonderful Time

by Mary Lou on 07/19/2013
Very pleased with our stay. Property manager was excellent. The grounds are nice, pool and spa wonderful

Absolutely wonderful

by Andrea on 07/17/2013
We had such a great time. The cottage was beautiful and exactly as shown online - clean, comfortable, well-equipped for everything and just delightful. Staff was friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautifully kept. The pool is very nice and the laundry facilities are clean and convenient. We took advantage of the trolley to get around and since the stop is right in front of Water Crest, it was so easy. Lots to do in Wells for teenagers. We have started planning to go back next year and are looking forward to it. Cannot say enough good things and there were absolutely no drawbacks. Can't wait for next year.


by Robert And Rosemarie on 07/13/2013
We were happy with the motel unit and will request the same one next year. We found the unit to be very clean.

Great Place To Stay!

by Mary Jo on 07/03/2013
Thank you....it was a great place to stay! We had family who rented across from us so it was nice to be close enough and to be able to enjoy the weekend together. Would definitely stay again!

Excellent 3 night stay!

by Isabelle on 06/29/2013
This was our first stay at WaterCrest Cottages. Stayed in Wells before in many different resorts. We really enjoyed your resort. It was very quiet which we appreciated. The cottage (135) was spotless when we arrived! I usually do a little cleaning when arriving in a rental....The cottage has had some nice upgrades, it was really cute and quaint. Kitchen is a little old but it was functional (old stove worked great!), and so clean! It had a bunch of utensils and pots and pans we usually miss in other rentals. Everything was in good working order. Did I mention it was clean?! We enjoyed the screened porch and our girls appreciated the huge room they shared. What a plus to each have our own bathrooms! We will definitely try to be back next summer. We took advantage of the early summer special. Wow what a good deal! To think I almost paid double for the same or even smaller accommodations.... Keep up the good work and thank you for an short but enjoyable stay. See you next summer I hope! Isabelle and family

Nice venue, fairly comfortable

by Nicolas on 06/27/2013
My friends and I spent 3 days in the #128, and we enjoyed it as the venue is clean and comfortable, the staff is nice and friendly, and the pool and spa are really appreciated. There's nothing bad to say. I will definitely consider coming back in your place.

Above average.

by Richard on 06/19/2013
We had a wonderful time with you folks. We did find a small problem with the room. It appeared to have some water damage. Very minor. A large spot on the bathroom ceiling and the floor in the kitchen was heaved a little and the bathroom door shut with a drag. Our stay was great and we are looking forward to next year already. The room was nice a clean and fresh smelling. Richard

Enjoyable Stay

by Robert on 06/09/2013
We were very happy with our stay at cottage 122. It was very clean and decorated in a very homey way. Also it was very nice that she had towels sheets and etc. for us. You don't find this service very often. We have also stayed at other cottages at Watercrest in the past and have always enjpoyed our stay, and never had any problems.
