I live and work here with my partner sculptor Caroline who is originally from Austria and speaks English, German, French and Italian. We are both international recognized sculptors (please Google our names: John Van Alstine, Caroline Ramersdorfer). We would be delighted to share our garden, studios and large indoor gallery and all that the wonderful Adirondacks have to offer with our guests.

John and Caroline purchased this apartment in 1987

This historic property, with its 6 independent buildings, nestled on the banks of a mountain river is an artist's dream. To live, create and exhibit our work in such a beautiful part of the world is an extraordinary and wonderful privilege and something we would love to share it with our guests!

Beyond all the wonderful things the Adirondacks offer - our unique space affords our guests a chance to live within our 9 acre sculpture garden, and if they wish, stroll in our huge indoor galleries, visit our studios, see us at work and come away with memorable insights into how our enchanted location has a strong and positive effect on our creative process.

Studio C exceeded our expectations. The studio sits in the midst of a beautiful and inspiring sculpture garden created by John and Caroline, the owners, from their own work. The room itself is spacious, modern, and elegant. John and Caroline were quite helpful. We hiked, kayaked and swam. This is a perfect getaway for a couple.

Fantastic unique hideaway in the Adirondacks

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in this unbelievably beautiful apartment located in a converted mill building on idyllic riverside property - the perfect August getaway from NYC. John and Caroline were gracious and friendly hosts, and one of the highlights of our stay was a personal tour John gave of his studio and workspaces. The apartment itself is exactly as pictured in the photos, if not even a little more grand in person. We made constant use of the gas grill, located right by the front door on a new wooden patio. Note that there aren't many restaurants nearby, but the kitchen is well equipped for cooking; just be sure to stock up on groceries before you arrive if you can. Make sure to take a walk through the sculpture garden and visit the river where you can sit in chairs on a little rock island and watch the Sacandaga slowly bubble by. Wells itself is a quiet town, but Lake Algonquin is beautiful and we found great hikes (Crane Mountain, ~35 min) and sightseeing (Adirondack Museum, ~60 min) nearby. Cell service is spotty at best, nothing via ATT, but there is wifi in the apartment. Overall, a fantastic one-of-a-kind place to stay and a extremely pleasant experience all around.

Upscale Camping

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time and John and Carolyn were very friendly and helpful, but never annoying or intrusive. He even let me use his computer to print out our passes to Six Flags Great Escape which is less than an hour away. My mother in law ended up going into the hospital the day we were supposed to leave and they were very flexible and let us move everything back a couple days. We even changed from 4 weekday nights to 2 weekday and 2 weekend nights and they didn't change us extra for the weekend nights which are generally more expensive. Our son had a blast throwing rocks in the water at the "relaxation center" where you can swim if you want(I know I did). It had a ton of great amenities while still keeping you in a nice secluded area! Oh yea beautifully decorated with their art as well. Very impressed for the price and would love to return. I have AT&T and did not have cell service however...besides that it was great, and they do have wifi that you are able to connect up to.

Beautiful get away!

  • 5 of 5
John and Caroline were gracious hosts who welcomed us into their gorgeous guest studio for the weekend. The place was spotless, with coffee and their own maple syrup as a welcome gift, and they made sure we were comfortable and oriented before leaving us to settle in. It was still very much winter during our stay, and John was so nice to loan us snow shoes and print off a few options for some really gorgeous hiking in the area. We were just there for two days as an escape from NYC, and I can easily see myself visiting again in the fall. The wood burning furnace in the pictures is reason enough to visit in the winter. Overall, I can't say enough good things about John and Caroline's studio and the beautiful surroundings!

Owner's Response: Sean was a super guest. Very thoughtful and easy to communicate with prior to his visit. He was respectful of the property and left it spotless! We would most certainly have him back and would recommend him to any Home Away host. 5 stars!
