    Awesome Location

    This place was amazing! It’s located just a couple minutes away from amazing and delicious restaurants and cute shops. Judy and her son were helpful in answering all our questions regarding pet friendly beaches and what their recommendations for popular food spots. They are taking all necessary precautions due to covid. My husband and I and our pooch will definitely be back! If you want to feel at home away from home, while traveling with your furry companion, this is the place to go!

    Repeat Happy Dog

    I've been taking my dog Lani to the Beached Motel & Cottage for 3 yrs. Lani loves the cottage, it is clean and super accessible to all the dog friendly activities Wells has to offer. We go the same week each year and so do many of the other repeat customers who Lani has now gotten to know as vacation neighbors !

    Private and Friendly

    If you don't have to be on the beach and you like the played back non-corporate lodging, this is the place to stay. We are two big humans so the bed in our room made sleep a bit cozier than we like. However, who goes to the beach to spend a lot of time in their room. Late evening on your semi private porch, owner and mom are fantastic, and the pool was inviting. Within seconds of checking in the owners beautiful and sweet mom was giving me detailed directions of points of interest that was also pet friendly. She was so helpful! We look forward to staying longer and getting one of the cottages. Saxon our dog had his best sleep there.

    Perfect place for dog lovers

    We have stayed here 3x's now. The owners are the nicest people and remember our dogs. We have 2 and stay in the standard rooms off the main building. They also have small cottages if you need more space. The grounds are perfect for sitting/playing with your dogs. If you are looking for a dog friendly place close to the beach you can;t beat here.
