Overview

Lake Algonquin - Wells Cottage Rental Photos and Description

It's all windows, all about the view and rugged outdoors, sleeps 2

Cute home for two with gorgeous lake and mountain views.

This is a great area for outdoor activities. Enjoy a small town atmosphere with big time Adirondack adventures.

We call her 'Trailer Liscious'. She's a 1960's mobile home that has been transformed to an open, modern space with oversized windows that bring the outside in. Has a cozy interior fireplace, outside fire pit, weber grill, kayaks and nice bikes. Snowshoes in winter.

Great year round spot to enjoy hikes to our local waterfalls, kayak, swim or x country ski and snowshoe out front, bike around the lake, or take drives to the many other lakes nearby. We have land line phone for local and long distance phone calls (Verizon cell service only up here), wifi internet, microwave, full kitchen, Netflix on our flat screen TV, lots of great books and DVD's and games. No cable though, we come here to get away from the news!

Sleeps two in comfortable West Elm double bed with nice linens. Flat screen TV, full kitchen, Weber grill, indoor fireplace, outdoor fire pit, tons windows to drink in the great lake and mountain views!

We supply all the local scoop for hikes, waterfalls, antiquing and restaurants. Nearby there is golf, horseback riding and whitewater rafting. Skiing in winter is terrific - both x country and downhill are nearby, this is snowmobile country, local rentals available.

There is a small road between us and the lake, easy swimming or kayaking access.

The lake and mountain views from inside (and out!) are unobstructed and lined by pine trees, creating a feeling of privacy rarely found on property so close to the lake.

Rachel Ray Endorsement!: Trailer Liscious was featured in Rachel Rays Magazine as one of her recommended romantic, cheap getaways in her Valentines Day edition!

No smoking, no pets please. Sleeps 2 persons max.

About Maura

Maura has been coming to Lake Algonquin her entire life, and knew as a small child she would have her own home here. Now she and her husband David own two houses in addition to the family camp. We enjoy all the year round outdoor fun - we ski, swim, kayak, paddle board, snowmobile, hike, antique, bbq and sometimes do absolutely nothing.

We use both, we rent both. It's been a great experience sharing what we love so much with others.

Maura purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Maura chose Lake Algonquin - Wells

The Trailer Liscious Experience: This trailer was purchased for the location - one of the best views on this very picturesque and quaint lake.

The original plan was to use it for a few years for extra sleeping room, then tear it down and build a house. However, after staying here a couple of seasons and putting a little (OK a Lot!) of elbow grease into brightening her up, we recognized the efficiency and practicality of keeping the trailer. It is solid as a rock, local craftsmen have enhanced her with an abundance of picture windows to capture the view, we now have a fireplace, efficient heat and winter plumbing. She's clean, modern, warm and here to stay! We love her and so do our guests!

What makes this cottage unique

It is unique to find a cozy, clean, comfy and yet affordable get away home for just two people.

The views are fabulous. This is a small town on a beautiful lake that never gets very crowded, that is hard to find these days.

We do our best to supply NICE things for a NICE experience for all our guests. You will have access to very good kayaks, bikes, snowshoes, linens, towels, lots of spices, paper towels, napkins, tin foil - things you may not think to bring and most vacation rentals do not supply. We try to make it easy and breezy for you!

In winter deer and wild turkeys surround the house (our neighbors feed them).

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had such a wonderful time relaxing and slowing down from big city living. We rested, walked and enjoyed the BBQ. Hours on the couch drinking in the lake view and letting time slowly pass. A place to fill the heart and empty the mind.



Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Excellent, relaxing and accommodating

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I needed to get away for New Year's and we wanted to go somewhere close to skiing/snowboarding and that was secluded. This property was wonderful for that. The view of Lake Algonquin was amazing, and the frigid walks were perfect for us. The quiet was a welcome change as well, and it was nice just reading in front of the fire.

Maura and David were excellent hosts. They were responsive, accommodating and overall very professional and understanding. We cannot speak more highly of them and this place, it was the refreshing break we needed to get back into the swing of the things for 2015. We would definitely go back.

Wonderful, Relaxing.

  • 4 of 5
What a great place to stay! We loved everything about Trailer-licious—especially the fireplace and the unexpected surprise of Roku. The recycling situation was a bit confusing for us lackadaisical city dwellers, but otherwise, it was a wonderfully pleasant time for my wife and I to rewind and to relax.

By the way, there is a great selection of books and movies. I’m an English teacher, so I was pleasantly surprised by the book collection. We ended up reading The Catcher in the Rye again, just for fun.

Two things that we not what I expected. First, the recycling situation was a more elaborate than I've seen before, though it seems to be the fault of the town of Wells. You have to wash the trash (ahem . . . "recycling") and separate it into various bins (in many of the cities I've lived, recycling is neither washed nor separated).

Second, the trailer is not as rural as the pictures make it seem. Granted, it is still extremely private, and I only saw the neighbor walking his dog once from the main window during our entire stay.

Other than those two unexpected bumps, I would undoubtedly do it all over again. This is a wonderful place to spend some down time. Well worth it!

Beautiful Views from Cosy Cabin.

  • 5 of 5
We loved the cabin/trailer from the moment we arrived. In a lovely position overlooking the mountains and lake. Beautifully decorated, very cosy, warm and clean, with everything you could need. Great stock of videos and books. Had fun riding the bikes round the lake. We really wished we could have stayed longer.

Cozy mountain getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely time at trailer-liscous. Such a gorgeous home in a beautiful location. We checked out the Lakeside Grill on Saturday; fabulous music! We also hiked up to a few waterfalls and just basked in the sunshine. What a wonderful and relaxing oasis!

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL/PEACEFUL GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I went for a mini-vacation to this wonderful home. The pictures of the inside are just as clean and nice in real person. The bed was so comfortable!!! We have stayed at 5 star hotels before but none were as comfy as this. The place was fully loaded with anything you could need/want for your vacation plus some. The thing we loved best (that the pictures do NOT do justice) was the LAKE! wow. What views! It was a nice, quiet, and peaceful place to be. The town is quaint and the best breakfast we have ever ate was down the road in a log cabin called Mountain Memories. Praline French Toast in a skillet...YUM! We appreciated how clean everything was. Although you cant see in the pictures, there are a few houses surrounding this property, but there was definitely enough privacy. The summer weather was perfect as it was a hot day and cool night. We look forward to returning!!! Maybe we will try the winter-time however, the 2 kayaks were most def a treat (spent one whole day out on the lake/picnic in the kayaks). Lots of nearby hiking.The views are outstanding! Thanks for such an easy process and wonderful rental, Maura! Look forward to visiting again. -Collin and River

Map

Car: necessary

Lake Algonquin is located in Wells, New York, southern Adirondack Mountains. Quiet town, not a lot of tourists (there are no hotels!) so you may have the lake all to yourselves, especially midweek.

The area is stunningly beautiful...with mountain hikes, waterfalls and lots of lakes. We will share all the local remote spots, most of which you would never find without local assistance!

In warmer weather we supply kayaks for exploring the lake and bikes for exploring around it. Great fishing on Lake Algonquin, free tennis and basketball courts in town. We supply a list of antique shops, recommended local restaurants, hikes and other things to do. Nearby there is golf, horseback riding and whitewater rafting.

It is a winter wonderland here during the snow season! We supply 2 sets of snowshoes, skiing is terrific - both x country and downhill. Small ice skating rink in town, ice fishing abounds, and there are car and snowmobile races on this lake that are thrilling to watch, and can be seen from the comfort of indoors. Rent snowmobiles - hundreds of miles of groomed trails!

Golf: Public golf 15 minutes away in Speculator, NY

Ski Gore - fabulous, never a long line - reasonable rates - spectacular views we LOVE Gore!

Ski Oak Mt - 12 minutes away, small but beautiful views of local lake and mountains, great for beginners and kids.

Cross Country Ski at Lapland Lake - Finnish flavor, tons of trails, lake, reindeer, nice restaurant, very down home feel to it, this is our favorite.

Cross Country Ski at Garnett Hill - very nice - near Gore

Cross Country Ski out front across our lake - bring your own skis!

Snowmobile trails are famous up here - rent in Speculator, they have guides as well.

Snowshoe: we provide 2 sets, go anywhere in woods near house, across lake or on the many trails around - we recommend hiking to the waterfalls which are gorgeous in winter with all the ice.
