Village by the sea - Holiday Celebrations

Christmas santa

Make Village by the Sea your holiday headquarters. Two of Maine’s most popular seaside Christmas celebrations take place just minutes from our resort. You can have the best of both worlds; spacious lodging at great savings, and just a quick 10 minute drive to Kennebunkport’s world famous Christmas Prelude or Ogunquit’s Christmas by the Sea.

Village by the Sea is ideally situated between these two popular holiday events, both of which tend to sell out at premium lodging rates. Here at Village by the Sea you can enjoy spacious suite accommodations and resort amenities without the prime time price tag. It’s like a home away from home, where you can relax at our resort, do some holiday shopping in Wells and nearby outlet shops of Kittery and Freeport, and enjoy the sights and sounds of two great holiday celebrations in our neighboring towns of Kennebunkport and Ogunquit.

Stay with us and save money, while enjoying the comforts of a one or two bedroom suite with a full kitchen for cooking convenient and affordable meals. Village by the Sea offers year round resort amenities including an indoor heated pool. Bring the whole family for the pre-holiday fun.

Just 10 minutes north of Village by the Sea is the famous town of Kennebunkport which hosts a world-renowned Christmas Prelude. The postcard perfect village is decked in lights and boughs to welcome the holiday season. Kennebunkport’s Prelude has garnered national attention the likes of the Today Show and The Travel Channel. Just last year, HGTV featured it as “#2 Christmas Town in America”.

Only five minutes to our South is the beautiful village of Ogunquit where the holidays are celebrated in style. Ogunquit has long been a community of art and Christmas by the Sea is yet another display of the local artistry. Enjoy craft fairs, splendid holiday decorations throughout the seaside town and fun events like the Christmas parade, Hay rides through town and a Chocolatefest and Chowderfest where local chefs show off their talent.

As a bonus, staying here at Village by the Sea in Wells, you are perfectly positioned to enjoy the famous Southern Maine Christmas Parade, taking place right along our resort on Route 1, Sunday at 2pm.

Village by the Sea is your best place to stay during these extraordinary Maine holiday celebrations. You can relax and unwind in your spacious suite lodging after a day of holiday shopping and cheer. Why pay top dollar for a hotel room amid the hustle and bustle, when you can escape to a fully equipped two bedroom suite just minutes away from these popular holiday festivals.
