LAKEFRONT HOME WITH PANORAMIC MOUNTAIN VIEWS

Lake Algonquin - Wells House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 16

Scenic, year-round, 4 bedroom home nestled on quaint lake cove. Great for vacationing with multiple families or groups. Conveniences close by without sacrificing peaceful relaxation. Located on quiet lake with outdoor fire pit, dock, wrap around deck and screened in porch.

Ideal setting for family reunions with small motel only a short walk away. Children's playground, tennis courts, and pavilion with picnic tables across the street. Public boat launch nearby. Sandy beach a 10 minute walk down the road. 3 min. walk to General Store for all your last minute needs (includes take out pizza, movie rentals, beer, soda, gifts...) and an ice cream stand for keeping the kids happy.

Nothing compares to autumn in the Adirondacks. Beautiful colors from the surrounding mountains reflect perfectly off the glass-like lake. Canoe lovers will marvel at the wildlife in the connecting river as their paddles cut gracefully through tranquil waters.

Enjoy a cozy outdoor fire while star gazing and roasting marshmallows. Take a peaceful walk or bike ride around the lake to enjoy the foliage. Ambitious bikers ride the bike route to other scenic lakes in the Adirondacks.

In the winter enjoy the many outdoor activities in the area. And, after a day of skiing, snowmobiling, sledding or a simple walk come into the warmth of our indoor fireplace. You and your guests will enjoy our large living room, social kitchen/dining room great for both meals and games, and cozy sun room with incredible views of the lake and mountains. The boot room keeps all your belongings out of the way yet dry and ready for your next winter adventure.

Wells is approximately 1.25 hours northwest of Albany, NY.

Really Great Views

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 28, 2011
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
This was a very nice home right on the lake. We really enjoyed the proximity to the beach, the wonderful lake and mountain views, and the screened porch which was great for dining. The deck and the terrace offer great views.

Ryan provided a very comprehensive information packet that literally walks you through the house and answers any questions you might have.

The home was very comfortable and well stocked with books and games with many for younger children. The linens were clean and folded for each of the beds. The upstairs shower was especially nice. The kitchen pantry has ample storage for your items.

We brought our own kayaks, but there were three boats provided complete with life jackets and the necessary paddles / oars. The lake itself is very suitable for small boats with many places to explore where the river comes into it.

We had a great time and would recommend this rental to anyone.

Lakeside Pines

Our family enjoyed a wonderful week at Lakeside Pines. It was roomy and well equiped for our first family vacation with the grandsons ages 7, 3, 4, and 1. The older ones learned to fish with Daddy and Grandpa while the baby explored the playroom. The close proximity to the lake and the raft and paddle boat were especially appreciated due to the oppressive heat wave we experienced.
We would recommend the camp to any family that wants to experience a real Adirondack vacation.

Great Week at Wells

My family and I had a wonderful week at the lakefront home this July. We had a group of 11 and had lots of space for everyone. The kids really enjoyed the lake right out the back as well as the local beach. We also found a nice gift shop just down the road which had some very nice items.

We found the house to be very clean and I'd even like to comment on the nice linens they have. We also loved the screen in porches which was a great place to have your meals. Our family has rented many homes over the years and this one is certainly a keeper! I would highly recommend.

We have the greatest time @ the McGrath's. The lake view is beautiful and the lake is very clean. My friends and I just hang out in the porch all day and night. Some of us never left the home.
