Gorgeous lake views from this exceptionally comfortable home. Sleeps 6.

Lake Algonquin is one of the prettiest lakes in the southern Adirondacks. Enjoy the 3.5 mile walk around it, swim, kayak or hike to numerous local waterfalls. Wells is a bit of a throwback in time, expect a relatively quiet, peaceful and relaxing retreat.  

Please note: this is a NO ANIMALS, smoking or entertaining property.

The downstairs is an open floor plan, with beautiful lake views, an easy propane fireplace and sitting area so the cook can converse with everyone. Great farmhouse sink, 5 burner gas stove, dishwasher, expansive wood counter space with breakfast bar. Very nice pots, pans, dishes, glassware, spices and other amenities provided. There is a separate living area with sofa and 40" flat screen for watching Netflix movies. We have no cable TV here, we come here to get away from the news!

Upstairs master bedroom has cathedral ceilings, queen bed, private bath with deep soaking tub and great lake views. Two guest bedrooms each have one double bed and use of 1/2 bath in upstairs hallway, another full bath is downstairs.

This house is decorated with antiques, original artwork and exceptionally comfortable furnishings. We go out of our way to supply amenities that will enhance our guests experience. We share detailed directions to fun waterfalls, hikes and places that you might not find otherwise. You will have binoculars, snowshoes, kayaks, canoe, Sonos music, grill and lots of other fun things. 

The yard out by the lake is where we spend our time, soaking in the sun, the view and BBQ'ing. There is a local road between our house and the lake, but we are above it and it is somewhat obscured. We have Adirondack chairs for lounging and enjoying the view, a fire pit and large Weber gas grill.

Favorite activities include daily walks around the lake, hikes and swimming in waterfalls, kayaking out front (you drag the kayaks across the road, launch them there). Public fishing dock is out front. Swimming access is across the road, It is a bit rocky, bring water shoes, or public sand beach is one mile away. 2 kayaks and canoe provided. Rent more in town. Free tennis and basketball courts within walking distance.

FALL FOLIAGE is SPECTACULAR from the farmhouse. We have unobstructed views of the color filled mountains, doubled by the reflection of these mountains on the lake, really is a sight to see!

Winter is magical! Cozy and warm inside, great sporting opportunities right out your front door. Snowshoe or cross country ski across the lake or on one of many local trails. Lapland Lake is a world class cross country resort with authentic Finnish food. Downhill ski at family friendly Oak Mt. or fabulous Gore Mt. Ice fishing, snowmobiling, and winter hiking to local waterfalls are favorite activities. There are ice car races on the lake on occassional Sundays that can be viewed from the sofa, or go out and watch them up close and personal, very exciting to see! 

4 sets of snowshoes provided.

This is snowmobile country, you can sled from here to Canada on groomed trails. Rentals and guided tours available. Experiencing the Adirondack woods in winter, riding over lakes and stopping in at different Pubs for a pint and a stew can be great fun. Highly recommended.

This is one of the oldest homes in town. Was a working farm for 100+ years. Truly gorgeous view.

DISCLOSURE: there is a security camera on the front and back exterior.

No smoking, no animals (no exceptions, sorry!) and no candles please, this is an allergy sensitive home. We like to offer lower rates if you are just 2 persons, so rates listed are for two. There are additional fees for each additional guest, including children.

Watercraft is available for use May-Oct. Guests must be 25 years unless with parent. 

Maura's family has had a camp in Wells since 1950's. We started our rentals by renovating a little trailer overlooking the lake. It came out so cute and rented all the time, so we continued to purchase/renovate, for a total of 7 properties now!
