About Gregg & Cheryl Martinez

I grew up here in Wells from the age of 10 and still reside here. I left Maine for New Hampshire after graduating from St. Anselm College and had a 7 year career in Law Enforcement, though only living outside of Wells for three years. I have been in the hospitality business with my family as a child and right up to today.

Gregg & Cheryl Martinez purchased this cottage in 1976

Why Gregg & Cheryl Martinez chose Wells

This property has been in our family since 1976. I was raised in the hospitality business and have been involved in the local tourist trade most of my life. I grew up on the Webhannet River that lies about 75 yards to the south of the cottage and caught many a brook trout there and have numerous fond memories of growing up in this beach community.

What makes this cottage unique

I have spent several years myself living in this cottage and enjoyed the quiet and the occasional sightings of deer, turkey, partridge, pheasant, fox, coyotes and even a moose one time that stumbled up from the salt marsh on the east side of US 1. This place offers the best of so many worlds and your world is determined by which way you choose to walk from the front yard.

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

Owner was extremely friendly and very helpful with making our stay amazing. The weather was 50/50 with sun and rain so when we were inside it was still great. The house felt comfortable and had a great location. Overall would recommend to any couple or small family and would rent again!

So clean and quiet. No noise at all!!!!

Perfect for small families. Close to everything you might need.

Nice swiming pool.

We went to the beach by car, but you can go easily with the trolley.

We want to come back next year!

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

This rental is beautiful. Very, very clean and comfortable. It has everything you could need plus. The location is great! Close to everything but far enough from the main road so that it is quiet & relaxing. Having the option to use the pool rather than go to the beach was a bonus for my kids.

Wonderfully relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying in this cottage and we enjoyed it just as much the 2nd time around! We have two young boys and it was perfect for our family of 4! Clean and had everything we needed for the week! Great location, close to beaches and shops.

Highly recommend! Thanks again!

The Gulls Nest was absolutely amazing! Extremely clean when we arrived (which is always a plus). The kitchen had everything you would need for your getaway. We loved how centerally located it was...there is so many things to do we didn't have enough time for everything! We will definitely be going back. Thank you for such an amazing weekend!
