A beautiful chalet and quiet surroundings. Nicely furnished with all the amenities of home. Very well kept. You can see the ocean below, and walk the beach when the tide is out. We had a great stay! (2017)

We went back to Wells Watch for the second year for the last weekend in June. The chalet is absolutely beautiful, it's quiet, peaceful. Our teen son and his friend fished, played catch, chopped wood, and played cards. We bbq'd as a family and spend some quality time together away from reality. We've decided to make 

Wells Watch a yearly vacation spot it's so serene, peaceful and enjoyable"

"Absolutely in love with this place! It's perfect! Its raining which just adds to the charm! Thank you thank you thank you for sharing this treasure!

A  v e r y  p r e t t y  t r a n q u i l  p l a c e

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Well's Watch Chalet in Glovertown. It's a beautifully built log home, in a gorgeous setting, surrounded by tall birch trees overlooking the water. It's very private, even though you have neighbors nearby, you feel you have full privacy. The home is tastefully and comfortably equipped. The surrounding area is stunningly beautiful. We enjoyed golfing in Terra Nova National Park and hiking and picnicking in the old fishing village of Salvage. We would recommend it to anyone visiting the area and would like to return another time.
