Wells, New York
Renovated 1800's Farmhouse with STUNNING views of Lake Algonquin and the mountains beyond. Kept in immaculate condition.

Enjoy the comforts of a modern home on a serene lakeside setting in a classic old farmhouse. Furnished with mixture of antiques, 100 yr old wood floors and modern amenities. This is a great experience for couch potatoes and adventurers alike. Luxury and views found inside, rugged Adirondacks found outside.

The house sits on a hill across the road (not a busy one) from the lake, there is a fishing pier there and you can launch kayaks and swim, or if you prefer a sand beach, there is one in town.

Enjoy a daily walk or bike around the lake (3.5 miles), take a hike, venture up a mountain, then relax in the Adirondack chairs while barbecuing up dinner and drinking in the view. Late nights can be spent by the fire p...

The location was outstanding with a fantastic view over the lake with the mountains in the background. The house itself is old, so it had that cosy feel to it. We were a little taken aback by the many rules concerning our conduct in ensuring we did not introduce any dirt into the building. It's a pity the owners did...

We enjoyed the farm house very much, just what the doctor ordered. Very relaxing and laid back. It was nice to enjoy having the lake view both inside and out. We used both the couch and Adirondack chairs in the yard to take full advantage of the pleasant view. Having both the gas grill outside and the full kitchen was...

I surprised my girlfriend with a weekend trip for her birthday and she was completely thrilled when we got there. Everything was perfect and we enjoyed the exact relaxing weekend we were looking for. The house is so nicely decorated and put together, and my interior designer girlfriend thought the very same. We made very good use of the enormous...

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Holiday rates are higher and may have a longer minimum stay, please inquire.

The beds can sleep up to 6, but during peak dates (summer and holidays) we may have a 4 person maximum - we are doing all we can to keep the plumbing and house in great shape - limiting occupancy is the best way to do this.

No parties, family reunions, entertaining in this home, sorry!

About the neighborhood
Located in picturesque southern Adirondack Mountains, Wells is a classic small, quiet town with very few tourists. The lake is rarely busy, you may be the only ones on it, especially midweek! Lake Algonquin is surrounded by mountains, it is a very pretty, clean lake. Great for swimming, kayaking, waterskiing (bring a boat) and fishing.

Southern Adirondacks is lake country, so take a drive to the many lakes surrounding us. Antiquing, hiking, white water rafting, kayaking, snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing are all very popular activities. Wells has 3 waterfalls that we provide specific directions to that are very fun to visit.
