About Jean Barbara
I have been vacationing in Wells at my grandfathers cottage for my entire life. When I married my husband, he also loved vacationing in the town and we decided to purchased our own place and make it our own. I fell in love with Wells and the friendly people who live in this town. Lake Algonquin is clean and stunningly beautiful!
Jean Barbara purchased this house in 2005
Why Jean Barbara chose Lake Algonquin - Wells
We completely gutted this 1930's cabin and added on an addition. It took 4 years of weekends and vacations to finish but we had a blast doing it and just love the results! Frank did all the craftsmanship himself and also made many pieces of the furniture throughout the cabin.
Wells is a quiet and peaceful town and is a great break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This cabin is in a hamlet called the Jolie Montaigne Beach Association which gives us access to the lake. The beach is never overcrowded and has a stunning view of lake.
What makes this house unique
Lake Algonquin is a smaller lake so we don't get the high speed boats and lake traffic that many of the larger lakes get. Motor boats are allowed but it is also great for kayaking, fishing and swimming.
Guestbook comments from the owner
What a wonderful break from our busy lives! It's unanimous....the screened in porch is the best, firepit came in a close second. But, our 7 year old son LOVED the loft the most - he wished he could sty up there all day! We may build one in our barn. thanks for the inspiration!
