The Barbara Weller Windmill has been incorporated into an adjoining building and the combination forms a bed and breakfast for one family. This exterior photograph depicts the cottage, mill and the view of the ocean. The day I took this photograph was overcast and really doesn't show just what a spectacular location and view this mill has. The exterior of the mill is perfect. It's octaganal structure is covered with weathered, wooden shingles. The mast is in place as well as the tail pole.

The millstone display in the yard is enormous.
The above mill stone is the large object displayed in this photograph.in front of the cottage. Isn't it unbelievable just how large it is? This perspective of the mill is nice because you can see the pitch of the cap (roof) and the mast and windshaft. This windmill has been restored and maintained. Some windows have been added to make the area inside the mill part of the cottage.
