Great place, almost don't want to tell people about it. Small, quiet, perfect.

The cottages and rooms have all been renovated. We normally just get a motel room since we aren't around too much but, have also rented out a cottage for a week long stay.

Remember your own hair dryer.... and they don't have daily room cleaning but, how dirty do you have to be to have that anyway? Just bring your towels down and exchange them for new and you're good to go!

The pool is fun and everyone shares everything. Bob & Shelli are awesome hosts that's for sure!

Check it out, you will go back!

Room Tip: if you stick around the resort..... get a cottage - the rooms are very small. Sometimes too close f...

Drakes Island is an adorable property centrally located between Kennebunkport and Ogunquit, ME. We came across this "resort" a few years ago by pure chance... we decided last minute to go away to Maine for Labor Day weekend, no plans, no reservations. We played all day moving up the coast to Portland and decided to start looking for a room in the evening. Everything said, "Sorry" or "No Vacncy". We were driving down the road and saw, "VACANCY"... and drove in. Shelly, (the owner), was talking to a family telling them they only had a one bedroom cabin left and unfortunately their family of 7 would not be comfortable as that cabin would not sleep everyone and she wants all her guests to have a nice experience. We were next in line and first thing my boyfriend said, "we will take it!". She was so cute when she said don't you want to see it and do you want to know how much? My BF said, "all I want is a bed"... and Shelly insisted that she take us in to make sure we liked the cabin. We loved it... and not because it was available... we loved it so much, we go back every year and ask for the same cabin.
Shelly and Bob are so incredibly friendly, the cabins are neat and clean. They are very accommodating, if you need anything. They even have a cute vintage VW Bus to take you to and from the beach, so you do not have to park.
We will stay here again and again and again... we love it!!!!!
PS... they are extremely pet friendly, as well.

They have cabins, studio, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom and motel rooms, as well. We just love the cabins. They have kitchenette's, sitting areas, and have all been recently remodeled. The pool area is quite nice and is equip[t with a grill that can be used... each year there is something new...
