Charming and crazy clean, the Guest House is 2 bedroom with 2 queen beds, sleeps 4. Great base for hiking, downill and xcountry skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and water sports. Great waterfalls in this area. 

NO PETS and no exceptions, sorry. 


Very pretty 3.5 mile walk (or bring bikes) around Lake Algonquin. We supply a complete list of fun outdoor activities for all levels. Kayak and snowmobile rentals nearby. SNOWSHOES provided! 

Within a one hour drive you can visit Lake George, Blue Mountain Lake, Great Sacandaga Lake, Piseco Lake, Lake Pleasant, Indian Lake and Saratoga Springs. Beautiful drives near here, we are directly off of the designated scenic drive Rt 30 that winds through the southern adirondacks.

UPSTAIRS: 2 queen bedrooms, full bath with tub and shower.

DOWNSTAIRS: open floor plan. Sliding glass doors open to a large screened in porch. Fill kitchen, living and dining areas with large flat screen TV and cute faux fireplace for atmosphere. 

OUTSIDE: charcoal grill, large screened in porch, a couple Adirondack chairs.  

We supply LOTS of extras (napkins, foil, plastic wrap, spices, sugar...) so you can just pack a bag and go! 

NEIGHBORHOOD: The Guest House is in the town of Wells, within walking distance to the lake, town beach, convenience store, ice cream shop, churches, tennis, basketball courts and an outdoor skating rink. Very easy to get to. If you are looking for secluded, this is not it. If you are looking for convenience and comfort, you will be happy here. 

WINTER: Check out Lapland Lake (world class xcountry skiing!), Oak Mt (family friendly, cheap and fun downhill ski mt) and Gore (amazing downhill skiing). Snowmobile rentals in Speculator. We supply 4 sets of snowshoes and a full list of great winter hikes. The lake is one block away, has ice car races on occasion, GREAT fun to watch!  

SUMMER: kayaking, hiking, bbqing, antiqueing, walking, waterfalls, swimming in the lake, walking to ice cream and the beach, exploring surrounding towns are all a part of the summer fun here.
