The Farmhouse Scenic Lake Views from this Adirondack Farmhouse
Size –3 Bedrooms • 3 Bathrooms (2 full, 1 half) 3 Baths (2 full, 1 half) • Sleeps 3-6
This Farmhouse is an exceptionally comfortable 3 bed, 3 bath home. Renovated to capture the stunning lake and mountain view, and decorated with antiques and local artwork, it feels like your funky Aunts really cool vacation home, rather than a rental.
Great base for hiking, kayaking, exploring local waterfalls. We supply a full list of fun things to do, including hidden gems that took us years to find! Comes with 2 kayaks and a canoe. Sleeps up to 6.
Located close to town, walking distance to ice cream, tennis, basketball and playground. The yard overlooking the lake is for soaking in the sun and the view, campfires and BBQ'ing. There is a local road between our house and the lake, but we are above it and it is somewhat obscured.
No animals here, no exceptions, sorry. Check out our pet friendly Lake Pleasant Log Cabin if you have a dog.
The downstairs is an open floor plan with 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 50" flat screen for watching Netflix movies. No cable here.
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.
We provide binoculars, snowshoes, kayaks, canoe, Sonos music, grill and lots of other fun things.
SPRING, SUMMER and FALL
Favorite activities include daily walks around the lake, hikes and swimming in waterfalls, kayaking out front (carry the kayaks across the road to launch). Swimming access is across the road, It is a bit rocky, bring water shoes, or public sand beach is one mile away. Rent more kayaks in town. Free tennis and basketball courts within walking distance.
FALL FOLIAGE is SPECTACULAR here! We have unobstructed views of the mountains, doubled by the reflection of their colors 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 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!
