Property description

This cottage offers guests a combination of quiet and convenience, located just under one mile from one of Southern Maine's most quiet beaches.

Owner info

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.
