Gorgeous lake views, peace and serenity found in this exceptionally comfortable 1880's farmhouse.
Lake Algonquin is stunning, and The Farmhouse has just about the nicest view of it. Enjoy a leisurely walk around the lake, swim, kayak or hike to local waterfalls.
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.
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 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, toasting marshmallows and BBQ'ing. There is a local road between our house and the lake, but we are above it and it is somewhat obscured.
SPRING, SUMMER and FALL
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.

About the OwnerMaura'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!
