Lake Algonquin - Wells House Rental Photos and Description

Martin Luther King Weekend is Available due to a cancellation! 3 nights for $425. This immaculate and fully equipped cabin has a knotty pine interior, fireplace, cathedral ceilings, large screened in porch and lake rights to private association beach. This is a great getaway for a romantic couple, small family looking to enjoy the mountains and lake or good friends who want to catch up and enjoy time together. Everything is here that you will need~your home away from home! Master bedroom has a queen bed, 2nd room has a custom built-in bunk bed with a double on bottom and single on top & small loft that sleeps one. Large screened in porch adds 340 sq ft. of outdoor living space in the warmer months & has a comfy patio sectional couch to watch the hummingbirds and wildlife, ADK chairs and a dining table. We are situated in a quiet hamlet that has a private assoc. beach that is just a short walk away, 20 minutes to X-country and 1/2 hr to Gore Mnt.. Scenic hikes to waterfalls, great fishing, fire pit, grill, wifi, netflix, free tennis and basketball courts in town and 2 kayaks and 2 sets of snowshoes.

Master Bedroom: The master has a queen bed, ceiling fan, antiques, Adirondack furnishings and a sliding glass door that leads out to the screened in porch.

All quilts, blankets, mattress and pillow covers are washed on a regular basis.

Bunk Room: The bunk room has custom built in bunk beds with a double on the bottom and a single on the top. They were built with more space between them so they are comfortable, extremely sturdy and have plenty of head room for teenagers and adults.

Treehouse Loft: The loft is for one older child or young adult. We call it the 'Treehouse' because it is like sleeping in one! You cannot stand in it and do have to go up a sturdy set of stairs.

Screened in Porch: The screened in porch is 340 sq ft. of extra outdoor living space and overlooks the gardens and beautiful pines. It has a special screen to keep out the Adirondack 'no see-ums' . There is a patio sectional couch that can be separated into 4 seats for your comfort, 2 Adirondack chairs, dining room table and hutch. We also have an outside patio table with umbrella. There are lots of hummingbirds in the spring and summer and birds who make their homes in our birdhouses.

This house is professionally cleaned after each guest.

About Jean Barbara

I have been vacationing in Wells at my grandfathers cottage for my entire life. When I married my husband, he also loved vacationing in the town and we decided to purchased our own place and make it our own. I fell in love with Wells and the friendly people who live in this town. Lake Algonquin is clean and stunningly beautiful!

Jean Barbara purchased this house in 2005

Why Jean Barbara chose Lake Algonquin - Wells

We completely gutted this 1930's cabin and added on an addition. It took 4 years of weekends and vacations to finish but we had a blast doing it and just love the results! Frank did all the craftsmanship himself and also made many pieces of the furniture throughout the cabin.

Wells is a quiet and peaceful town and is a great break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This cabin is in a hamlet called the Jolie Montaigne Beach Association which gives us access to the lake. The beach is never overcrowded and has a stunning view of lake.

What makes this house unique

Lake Algonquin is a smaller lake so we don't get the high speed boats and lake traffic that many of the larger lakes get. Motor boats are allowed but it is also great for kayaking, fishing and swimming.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful break from our busy lives! It's unanimous....the screened in porch is the best, firepit came in a close second. But, our 7 year old son LOVED the loft the most - he wished he could sty up there all day! We may build one in our barn. thanks for the inspiration!

Beautiful cabin in perfect location!

The cabin was absolutely beautiful! We had everything we could have possibly needed and more. It was the perfect location for nearby hiking, fishing, and sightseeing locations and we could not have had a better time on our first family vacation! We will be back and thank you so much!

My husband and I have been renting from HomeAway for over 6 years and this cabin was one of our favorite rentals. Jean, the owner, was prompt in responding to emails and returned our security deposit within a day of our departure. The cabin itself is spotlessly clean, and a beautiful, peaceful retreat. The kitchen is well equipped, the furnishings are handcrafted, and the bedrooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated. Our favorite part of the house was the screened in porch, where we spent most of our time at the cabin, enjoying the serenity of the surroundings. We also enjoyed having the 2 kayaks, and the carriers, to use on the lake. We highly recommend the cabin and are looking forward to making a return visit. Thank you Jean for providing such a beautiful getaway!

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was amazing! Jean provided for every comfort. We loved breakfasts on the sunporch and evenings at the fire. The cabin was comfortable and beautiful. We enjoyed seeing the sites, including The Adirondack Museum. My girls appreciated the WII FI and netflix. We spent a lot of time at the local beach as well as the private beach. I would absolutely recommend this cabin to anyone looking for rest and relaxation.

Adorably Decorated Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Loved this property. Decorated so nice. Very cozy. My 10 year old loved the loft bed area while my 16 year old enjoy nights on the screened in patio. My 19 year old was happy with the wifi. We all are happy which doesn't happen too often! This is a great place to stay. All the amenities are there for you. Pack your clothes and relax! Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your cabin!!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is beautiful and in a very peaceful location. Did some hiking, kayaking, and of course made a campfire! Alpine diner is close and has great food if you want a night out or else make sure to bring your food because there's only small convenient stores close by. The cabin supplies every utensil and appliance you would ever need which is great! Very comfortable place as our first night we stayed in and watched Netflix due to rainy weather. Can't thank the owner's enough for the wonderful place to stay and hope to visit again!

Honeymoon Haven

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Barbara Cabin for three nights following our wedding and we could not have been more pleased. The cabin was clean, superbly stocked, romantic and idyllic. We brought our bikes and rode around the town, kayaked (for the first time) on the beautiful, peaceful lake, and snuggled on the couch to watch a movie from the fine selection in the hutch, and enjoyed nearly perfect weather....we were able to use fireplace and yet still sit out on the screen porch to enjoy the scenery! Thank you Jean for helping to make our short but sweet honeymoon so memorable! Can we come back for our first anniversary? :-)

Owner's Response: Frank and I are so happy you enjoyed your stay and had a memorable honeymoon! We would love to have you return to the cabin and do offer a 10% discount if you choose to vacation with us again. The cabin, Lake Algonquin and the town of Wells offer a different Adirondack experience with each of the 4 seasons....we still can't decide which season is our favorite ^_^ We look forward to hearing from you again!

Wells is a quiet town with very few tourists. Everything in the town is within walking distance. The fishing pier and boat launch for motor boats is only 1/4 mile away. Lake Algonquin is a smaller lake (4 miles around) that allows motor boats and is great for kayaking, canoeing, fishing and swimming. Our private association beach is never crowded and has stunning views of the lake and mountains. We provide all the local happenings and directions to hikes, stores, dining and fun things to do in the area.
