Holiday Rental House
Renovated 1800's Farmhouse with stunning views of Lake Algonquin and the mountains beyond. We are now following CDC recommendations for cleaning, and must limit our guests to 4 at this time. 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 around the lake (3.5 miles), take a hike, venture up a mountain, then relax in the...Renovated 1800's Farmhouse with stunning views of Lake Algonquin and the mountains beyond. We are now following CDC recommendations for cleaning, and must limit our guests to 4 at this time. 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 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 pit, roasting marshmallows and stargazing. We supply a detailed list of local hikes, waterfalls, antiquing, museums, restaurants and other local attractions so you will have access to those special Adirondack places, some that took us years to find. Winters are beautiful here with skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiilng and great winter hikes and fishing nearby. Amenities include 2 kayaks, a canoe, 1 stand up paddle board, 4 sets snowshoes, fireplace, fire pit, washer/dryer, high speed internet, local and long distance phone, great farmhouse kitchen with dishwasher, micro, double farm sink, 5 burner stove. This is an exceptionally comfortable home. Guests favorite room tends to be the kitchen, which is part of an open floor plan with dining and sitting room with fireplace, all with great views of the lake. There is a separate living room with 40' flat screen for movie viewing through Net Flix. No cable here. Upstairs Master Bedroom has queen bed, cathedral ceilings and beautiful views of the lake and mountains. Private master bath with extra deep soaking tub (great after day of hiking or skiing), nice lake views from master bath too. Upstairs Guest Bedrooms each have one double bed and use of the 1/2 bath upstairs. Another full bath is downstairs. SPRING, SUMMER and FALL The lake is quiet, clean and perfect for a refreshing swim or kayak. The local sand beach is nearby, free tennis and basketball courts in town. WINTER In winter we supply 4 sets snowshoes. This home is a convenient and comfortable base for winter activities - try snow shoeing, hiking, ice fishing, snowmobiling, cross country or downhill skiing. There are occasional winter race car tournaments on the lake, great views of it from inside or go out and watch up close and personal, very exciting to see! The house is across the street (not a busy one) from the lake. MORE ABOUT THE HOUSE This is not your typical rental house - plenty of love, attention and resources have gone into the renovation of this home, which was a working farm for 90 years and is one of the oldest houses in Wells. We are sharing with our guests all of the stuff that we enjoy on our holidays here - terrific beds with nice linens, top notch grill, antique wood floors throughout, good furnishings, kayaks, snowshoes - all very nice things. So we are looking for responsible, considerate guests who appreciate this and will pay attention to some of the nuances....such as our beautiful wood counters throughout the kitchen will stain permanently if you get red wine on them - so please don't - that sort of thing. This is a NO SMOKING, and NO PETS (sorry no exceptions) household - is an allergy sensitive home. Kept immaculately clean, so please only very well behaved children. Watercraft is available for use May 1-Oct 30. Holidays rates may be higher with longer minimum stays, please inquire. Rates are for 2 guests, additional person per day fee including children. No more than 4 guests now, sorry! Midweek dates offer some great rates. We have many return guests, so if you like it here and want to come back, we offer reduced rates during our non peak dates to our repeat guests. More

About the neighbourhood
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.
