While taking a chance on a recent escape to Maine we found ourselves in Wells, Maine after an all night drive from Moncton, NB. Coming out of the parking lot of Cogdon's Donuts after having the best breakfast imaginable we saw the view from the Garrison Suites ...it looked like heaven! The owner showed us a two bed efficiency close to the breathtaking view of the salt marshes ringing the beaches that was clean, fresh and only $150.00 per night in a very pricey area of Maine. He even went so far as to let us check in at 9 am after our all night drive, which is saying something.
The room was comfortable and spacious, and the bathroom was nice and clean. The kitchen area had a small table and sink/fridge unit that was great for soft drinks and washing up our travel mugs. The pool in the center of the property is clean, clean and then some. We spent two days lying in the sun on new chaise loungers enjoying the view. The only oddity was they don't supply pool towels so we went down the road to the Cannon Towel Outlet and bought plush bathsheets for $3.99.
The property is fronted by a beautiful historic yellow house and the property is inviting and open. We really found it to be a great home base as we spent our time shopping in Portland (only 10 minutes away) and Boston (only 1 hour away) in the evenings. Kittery is just under 10 minutes down the road and beautiful Wells/Ogunquit has shops, restaurants and beaches that envy any we have seen. Don't forget Funtown/Splashtown is under 10 minutes away also!
Can't wait to go back! This time we will try to extend our trip by several days. Thanks again to the owner for taking us in so early in the morning. You have earned our business for years to come.
