About Mark and Debby Hodgkins

We live in Charlton, NY but we have our lake house on the other end Lake Algonquin also!

Mark is an avid water skiier! There is a AWSA demensioned slalom course at the south end of the lake!

Mark and Debby Hodgkins purchased this house in 2014

Why Mark and Debby Hodgkins chose Lake Algonquin - Wells

We have enjoyed this lake for over 20yrs and decided to invest in this wonderful property when it became available because of the quality of the building and setting.

What makes this house unique

We love lake Algonquin because of the mountain views and the experience of the quaint town. It is not commercialized like other lakes in the Adirondacks. The lake is calm and easy to kayak and canoe on. There are beautiful eagles flying over head and tiny humming birds at the feeders. It is close enough to attractions for day trips but we can also come back to the peace and tranquility we love! The building is well done with wood floors and great windows, the bathrooms and kitchen are clean and up to date. We even have central air and a backup generator so you are always comfortable and at ease.

A wonderful winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything that was promised. It was nice and clean with a cozy wood stove and we didn't have to worry about anything except relaxing; there was even a fenced in area to let our dogs out. The big window in the living room framed a picturesque winter wonderland overlooking the lake. It was especially beautiful at night when the stars shone through the clouds. It is very close to several trails and we were able to take a few snowy hikes where we saw deer, birds and even a mink. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway!

Everything we expected and more

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely fell in love with this little house, the views and the area. Deborah and her family added wonderful touches to make our Thanksgiving week with our family a very memorable one. Although there was an abundance of snow, they checked on us and even offered to bring us pizza as roads were icing.

The house stayed warm and comfortable and we found ourselves lulled into a very relaxing atmosphere of beauty and fellowship. It was a perfect get away house for our family to meet. I've never experienced a white Thanksgiving before.

Beautiful Home, Accomodating Owners

  • 5 of 5

Deb and Mark were very accommodating to our last minute booking. I booked within 2 days of arriving. We showed up late Friday night and were able to let ourselves in. The home was beautiful and well-kept. The weather was in the low 30s when we arrived, and the heater kept the house very warm during our stay.

The property was well-groomed and our pup Oscar had a wonderful time exploring the property and the surrounding area. We even took a couple of short walks to the beach.

We didn't do too much else because the weather wasn't favorable for our stay, but the house was quite a comfortable place to be holed up. We aim to return in the warmer months! :D

A Great Weeks Vacation Was Had

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a great weeks vacation at Debby and Mark's vacation house. The house is all of what it is stated to be and then some. The house is very neat and clean with all up to date amenities. We were fortunate to have our morning coffee several days in the big easy chairs by the picture window and watch the sun come up over the lake. We used the dock numerous times to relax and watch the wild life. We had three Mallard ducks stop by several times times to provide entertainment. I could go on and on, it's a great place, we plan on returning as soon as possible.

Beautiful pet-friendly lakefront cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just needed a little getaway to relax and do some leaf peeping. Our mid October stay was just about perfect and so nice that we were able to include our dog Maks. The Cottage is immaculate with everything we could possibly need including a great view of the lake and a nice welcome call from Deb and Mark shortly after we arrived to make sure we were comfortable. We can't wait to return. we realize the cottage and area has so much to offer and hope we can take advantage of it again this summer and would definitely recommend the cottage to friends and family so they could enjoy it as much as we did. To our hosts Deb and Mark thank you very much
