About Susan O'Connell

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.

Susan O'Connell purchased this cottage in 1979

Why Susan O'Connell 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.

What makes this cottage unique

We are small and quiet. We have decided to retain our green space and not over develop the property.
