Wonderful getaway

This was a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of New York City. The lake was beautiful and the neighborhood was calm, quiet and peaceful. We loved kayaking around the lake, making fires at night, and grilling. Barbara and Jim were lovely. The house is very cute, clean and comfy. We would definitely come back!!!

THE BEST!!!

I've been dragging my feet about writing this review ... The reason for that is that we want to keep this place "our secret" but that's not fair to our hosts so here it is...
Longview is the BEST!
We've been vacationing in the Adirondacks for 28 years and this has been the best spot of all!
It's on a friendly, quiet street with a great lake view from the enclosed porch. The porch has new windows and flooring. It's very comfy with antique quilts on the rockers, making it a great place to read and watch the hummingbirds. (I have never seen so many!!). There is cable TV and Internet but the outdoors is always calling. The lake is nice and calm for kayaking and the five mile hike around the lake gives you such beautiful views of the lake and mountains!
The cottage is clean and comfortable, the kitchen well equipped.
Barb and Jim are very accomodating if there is something that you might need. This year there was a new outdoor grill, last year- a new dishwasher (a dishwasher on vacation is one of my favorite things). You will be very happy in this cottage!
It was, as always, a wonderful trip. Thanks Barb and Jim!

Peaceful spot, comfortable cottage

Six of us (three generations) enjoyed a week in August at Barbara and Jim's cottage on Lake Algonquin. It's a cozy, comfortable, cottage in a lovely, peaceful spot. The location was convenient for getting to the Adirondack Museum and Saratoga Springs. We enjoyed canoeing and kayaking on the lake, biking in the area, and swimming at the beach. We loved browsing at Crock Room Books, just over the bridge and up Route 8 a short distance. The hike to Auger Falls is a short drive up Rt. 30 and is quite beautiful. We enjoyed roasting s'mores on the fire pit at night and watching the endless stream of hummingbirds coming to the feeder all day. All-in-all, a fun and relaxing week for a group that ranged in age from 9 months to 84 years.

Peaceful and Unplugged

We truly enjoyed Wells. The home was very clean and it met all of our needs. The Lake is wonderful and relaxing. The kayaks and canoe were great complements to our kayaks - we were all on the lake at the same time. Auger Falls is a must do hike. Mountain Memories for breakfast - great. The State Park in Wells (Day Use facility) was a lot of fun. The people were very friendly and the river and small waterfall was perfect for our boys to swim and have fun. The Town beach is great -no need to bring a car, just a quick walk or kayak over as there is a small boat landing. Visit the Wood Place in Wells, visit the villages of Northville and Speculator. Or do nothing at all. My husband spent many hours fishing (catch and release) in the lake, on the rivers and by the dam. Our vacation was really wonderful and exactly what we needed to unwind from the hustle and bustle. Thanks to Barbara and Jim for sharing their delightful home. It is truly a special place.
