About the owner: Barbara has been vacationing in Wells since childhood. She lived here through her high school years and would live here year round if she could. Through Barbara Jim discovered Wells and loves it, too. Four generations of the family have been traveling to Wells to enjoy the quaint town and lovely quiet lake for over 50 years. We invite you to come see for yourselves!
Why the Owner Chose Wells: We purchased Longview in 2005 and gutted it to the studs.
Our aim was to make it into a home that we would want to stay in. All the comforts of home including a gas insert in the fireplace and a fully stocked kitchen. The screened porch is a big plus and a favorite of our guests. Lots of wild life going by on the lake year round.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The house has a much used fire pit in the yard for gathering under star filled skies.
In case of stormy weather the house is stocked w/ books, cds, dvds, board games, puzzles and even children's books and movies.
We own another home 'down the road a piece' so are nearby most of the time should you need anything during your stay.
