1800's Lakefront Farmhouse with Gorgeous Views overlooking Lake Algonquin. Old World Charm mixed with New World Amenities.
Great base for hikes, kayaking, swimming, visits to waterfalls, skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, antiquing or simply chilling. Comfort and luxury found inside, the wild and woolly Adirondacks found outside. Has an inspiring lake and mountain view, close proximity to the lake and fun year round adventures.
3 bedroom, 2.5 bath. Sleeps up to 3 couples or 3 singles.
Furnished with antiques and gorgeous 100 yr old reclaimed wood floors.
Warmer weather is great for swimming, kayaking, hiking, lots of remote waterfalls to explore...we will share all the scoop on how to get to them all. Antiquing is great up here, Saratoga is one hour away, Blue Mountain Lake Museum one hour in other direction. Two kayaks, 2 bikes and a stand up paddle board provided.
Daily walks or biking around the lake (3.5 miles) is a favorite activity. The local waterfall hikes are numerous and of varied degrees of difficulty. Remote lakes (for a swim), high peaks (for a view) or just a simple long walk through the forest all very popular here. Quite likely you will run into noone on your hikes.
FALL is stunningly beautiful foliage up here, especially from this farmhouse!
House has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, cozy propane fireplace. We have a washer/dryer, high speed internet, 40" flat screen, Amazon Echo for music, local and long distance phone, full and fabulous farmhouse kitchen with dishwasher and an outdoor Weber grill.
Downstairs kitchen, dining and sitting room with fireplace in an open floor plan - with great views of the lake. Separate living area with large sectional sofa and 40" flat screen for unlimited movie viewing through Net Flix. No cable though, we come here to get away from the news!
Upstairs Master Bedroom has queen four poster bed, cathedral ceilings and amazing views of the lake and mountains. The master has a private bath and extra deep soaking tub, great after a long hike or day of skiing.
Two upstairs Guest Bedrooms - each has one double bed. Both have use of a 1/2 bath in upstairs hallway. Another full bath with tub and shower is downstairs.
WINTER activities include:
Downhill ski Gore - 35 minutes away
Downhill ski Oak - 15 minutes with tubing and very cheap skiing - great for beginners
X country Lapland Lake - 25 minutes - world class cross country resort with dining, skating, tubing, reindeer!
X country Garnett Hill - 35 minutes
X country across our lake - 1 minute away :)
Snowmobile - rent 15 minutes away - thousands of trails - the best snowmobiling in the east - can go all the way to Canada
Snowshoe - all over - we supply 4 sets
Car Races are on lake out front on occasion, very exciting to watch
The house is across the street (not a busy one) from the lake. You can swim out front, fish from the public fishing dock or fish at the river which is nearby. We have a large flat grassy lawn with Adirondack chairs, fire pit and large picnic table for reading, outdoor dining, marshmallow roasting and star gazing. Local beach in town, free tennis and basketball courts too.
Wells is a sleepy town in the southern Adirondacks on the very scenic and relatively small Lake Algonquin. There is a very large lake, The Great Sacandaga, just south of us and Lake Pleasant is just north of us - both get much more action than we do - we like it that way! Very quiet here - you might be the only ones on the lake, even mid summer.

The 5 (soon to be 6!) Adirondack properties you find on our AirBnB listings are our privately owned rentals, but my husband David and I use them a ton as well.
My family has owned a cottage in this area since the 1950's. I've know since I was a small child that I wanted to spend more time here, so ten years ago I took my life into my own hands and started buying, renovating and renting properties in this gorgeous area. They have been so successful and so fun for us that we keep adding properties. We LOVE sharing these unique and fun homes with our guests.
Dave and I ski, hike, swim, antique (you'll see lots in our houses!), kayak, cross country ski, snowshoe and snowmobile here. If you are interested in these types of activities you will have access to all our special spots. If you prefer to sit and vegetate on the sofa, the interiors are comfy enough that you will be happy doing nothing too!
