Given that report and the low cost of a non-amplified indoor antenna, I'd certainly give it a try, expecting pretty good results... Provided there is little if any metal foil in your wall insulation and you don't have wire reinforced stucco or masonry on the exterior.

For an indoor antenna, there are few if any VHF signals strong enough to receive reliably, so I'd consider using an Antennas Direct SR-8 which will provide a bit of directionality and gain in the direction it's pointed. Factors that will improve your received signal quality.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
