Year Purchased: 1979
About the owner: I bought this property from my parents in 1979. I enjoy operating a small family business. Some of our returning quests are in the 4th generation of the family, since coming to stay with us.
Why the Owner Chose Wells: It is 'Off the beaten path'. It has beautiful, uncrowded, peaceful green areas and yet is just up the street from the ocean.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: We are small and quiet. We have decided to retain our green space and not over develop the property.
