Overview

Lake Algonquin - Wells Cabin Rental Photos and Description

One bedroom with loft with two twin beds and one futon chair. Sleeps 5.

Newly constructed log sided cabin with all new appliances and furnishings. Private dock on Lake Algonquin with kayaks and a canoe for your use and a three minute walk to the Town Beach (we'll even supply a wagon to transport those beach chairs, cooler and beach toys). One mile from the boat launch.

One bathroom with tub and shower and washer/dryer. Fully furnished modern kitchen with stainless electric stove, microwave and refrigerator. Living room with 32' flat screen TV with built in DVD player, Dish Network, WiFi and furnished with unique Adirondack style furniture.

A full size screened in porch is perfect for reading, relaxing (or maybe napping) in the afternoon or a peaceful dinner in the evening. The kids will probably want to sleep out there so don't forget the air mattress and sleeping bags.

Take a short walk to Torts Ice Cream Shop or the Community Hall for tennis, basketball or the playground. Enjoy dinner at the Alpine Restaurant and don't miss the experience (and great food) of stepping back forty years into an authentic, friendly Adirondack family owned diner at the Hope Diner just five miles south of town.

We are about a 1 hour scenic drive to Lake George and The Great Escape Theme Park and the Adirondack Museum at Blue Mountain Lake so you can take a day trip and still return to the peace and quiet of your cabin in the woods.

We are located in the heart of the Southern Adirondacks. Providing lakes to swim, fish and boat in, mountain ranges and water falls to photograph, back roads to explore, the freshest air that you ever breathed and on a clear night an array of stars that challenge the imagination.

We provide an ideal cabin for the family that wants to experience an Adirondack vacation in the woods with the convenience of nearby lake access, hiking, boating or just exploring. An experience that will keep you coming back year after year.

My Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay at Ruby Hill Cabins and I hope to return. It is great.. year round, 4 seasons. I stayed previously end of Autumn and mid-Winter. Each season is magical there. It is very comfortable and suitably appointed. Gerry and Susan are exceptional hosts and ensure your stay goes without a hitch. The cabin is off the shore of Lake Algonquin and the vistas are beautiful. Wild game can easily be seen including deer, wild Turkey and numerous birds. The lake and the feeding river can be paddled with canoe or kayak. I paddled in Autumn, skied in Winter. Lapland Lakes is a 20 minute drive away, for some of the best Cross Country skiing in the Nation and another 25 minute drive in the opposite direction, lies Gore Mountain for some of the best downhill skiing in the East. There are decent restaurants and shops nearby in Speculator and last minute groceries can be found in the town of Wells. I'd recommend that if you plan to cook, buy all groceries before hand as much as possible. There are great Grocery choices in Amsterdam NY on the way up, including a Hanniford's which is a deluxe Grocery chain. There are wine and liquor stores in Speculator for those "last minute" provisions should the need arise. Don't miss Old Country Pizza in Speculator for some of the best Pizza and Subs you have ever tasted. Great pastry as well.. especially the homemade Apple Strudel. Once you visit this area...you will be hooked. Peace, quiet and beautiful surround despite being adjacent to a State highway. About 1 1/2 hours from Albany and Albany airport. One minor negative point, which has a work-around. There is NO cell, and I mean NO cell service at the cabin nor in the surrounding area... However there is a Land-line in the cabin for your use, and Wi-Fi (signal stronger at some times than others, mornings are best). Plan accordingly if connectedness is a critical issue for you during vacation time. This issue was not a major problem for me personally, but needs may differ, and I plan to return. Love this place. It is well kept, clean and will give you the complete Adirondack experience. I'm tempted to move there...seriously.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the very positive review of our cabins and the surrounding area. There is, however , some need for clarification. There is good cell service in and around Wells. It is provided by Verizon. There are also locations around town where other carriers' signals can be accessed. We also provide a land line telephone in the cabin for our guests use. The Wi-Fi service in the cabin is provided via DSL. Admittedly, it is not as fast as cable or fiber optic service that is available in more populated areas but it does usually meet the computing needs of our guests. Occasionally, our router or signal booster will need to be rebooted and that can be accomplished within minutes of our being advised that there is an issue.

A True Gem

  • 5 of 5

Not only was the cabin beautifully equipped, the hospitality of Gerry and Susan was truly exceptional. They truly rose above and beyond to make sure that our stay went as smoothly as possible. Though the weather was ferocious, we spent the weekend nice and toasty in the comfort of this beautiful little retreat. The area holds the potential for so many adventures - we can't wait to come back in the summer! The accommodations made our weekend the best experience possible! I'd whole-heartedly recommend Ruby Hill Cabins to anyone.

Wonderful little getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough nice things about this cabin. It is perfect for couples, newlyweds, or people who want to act like them. We are 68 and 66 years old! The attention to decor and details is just charming. Owners Gerry and Susan are warm and welcoming and very helpful in suggesting activities, and dining in the area. I highly recommend this rental, and will plan on returning.

Amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This little cabin in the woods was everything we could have hoped for! Quiet, romantic, peaceful, clean, comfortable... I could go on and on! Lots of sightseeing, nature walks and hiking nearby! We even went on early morning drives looking for deer to take photos and sure enough!!! I would recommend this cabin to anyone, families or couples. We will definitely be going back!

Wonderful log cabin for peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

This, as the other reviewers have said, is a wonderful place to stay. The cabin is immaculate, and has all the amenities you would want: firepit, barbecue, access to the lake, kayaks, and cooking facilities. It is a peaceful location set on the edge of a pine forest, with easy access to a lot of trails a short drive away. The Lake House Grill in town serves great food and beer and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there when not cooking/barbecuing at the cabin. I would highly recommend this to anyone seeking a relaxing retreat that is truly an Adirondack experience, and we will definitely be back.

Beautiful, peaceful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cabin for a week. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we ever spent. We have never been to the Adirondacks so we enjoyed just simply exploring the area. We brought our tandem bike and rode into neighboring towns. The main roads are on a bike route so there is plenty of shoulder to ride on. We enjoyed a refreshing dip in the lake after the ride. We cooked on the grill or in the kitchen most nights but there are resturants in the area. The cabin kitchen has everything you need for cooking basic meals. There is a great firepit for evening relaxing or marshmellow roasting and a lovely screened porch. The owners provide kayaks and a canoe. Of course we took out the tandem kayak and paddled for about 3 hrs along the perimeter of the lake. There are two cabins side by side so great for families and friends traveling together but enough room for privacy if you rent only one. We drove up to Lake Placid for the day to see the Olympic Park and passed through some nice towns with shopping. There are plenty of hikes in the immediate area or just a quick drive away. We also traveled to a neighboring town and enjoyed walking through the local farmers market. We found the people to be very welcoming and friendly. There is a lot more to see so we would definately go back. Gerry and Susan are wonderful hosts.
