Perfect Fall Get Away Rental

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our three day stay at The Lazy Bear Cabin. The property was welcoming and cozy, spotless, and well stocked. The small guidebook that the owners put together was very helpful, as it explained not only the amenities of the cabin, but of the area as well. My wife especially appreciated the stocked woodpile, and we enjoyed two campfires during our stay. We also used one of the two kayaks provided with the rental. The town of Wells and those surrounding offered many beautiful hiking and kayaking opportunities, since the fall leaves were near peaking. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would love to visit again. Thanks for a relaxing getaway spot!!

AN AMAZING VACATION SPOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I wish that I could formulate better words for how incredibly happy we were staying in this rental spot for 5 days and 4 nights. The house was incredibly clean (like hotel impossible's Anthony would of loved it!). They just added a hammock to the back yard which was a great surprise. We had a fire every night (with the firewood provided to us), their charcoal grill was the best for cooking freshly caught fish out of the lake that is walking distance from the house. We utilized the Kayaks, bikes, croquet and Frisbee that were all in the garage just asking us to use them. The owners, Tom and Loretta, were amazing, we traveled up to the house in a storm, they called to make sure we got in alright and provided us with multiple hikes in the area. They were more than accommodating and very quick to answer emails back and forth before arrival and after departure. We all were there celebrating a friends 30th birthday and had an absolutely amazing time, exploring the area etc. Even did a recommended whitewater rafting experience that we will always remember. All 4 of us are planning our trip back now and we have only been home for 4 days. THANK YOU TOM AND LORETTA for making this a truly memorable experience. I would recommend this property to ANYBODY!!!! The only thing you need is your clothes, your food, your charcoal and a smile on your face, everything else was basically taken care of!!!!! Thanks Again!!! Laura & Group!

Owner's Response: Thank you Laura for your feedback. It certainly put a smile on our face! The most rewarding part of the cabin rental for us is ensuring all our guests have a great Adirondack experience and go home with wonderful memories. We look forward to having you back - and glad you liked the hammock...nothing like it on a lazy summer day.

A Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This property was perfect in every way. We were most impressed by the cleanliness and pleased with the location. We were able to walk to the beach, kayak nearby and take day trips to other lakes and towns. There were also several restaurants nearby.The cabin was well stocked with everything we needed and several extras like bikes, tennis rackets, wood for a bonfire, Wi-Fi, etc.. It was peaceful and quiet during the week. We hope to return in the future.

Our Favorite Cabin Ever- THANK YOU

  • 5 of 5
We first stayed at the Lazy Bear cabin in November, initially for 3 nights and ended up staying and extra night because we loved it so much! And because we loved it so much, we decided to go again last week for our 2 year anniversary.
Tom and loretta are amazing, so nice, and even left a bottle for us in the kitchen to celebrate!
Wells is a really small town, but the scenery is so beautiful and we really enjoyed going around for walks. The closest big town is like 35 minutes away but we LOVED going there for our daily trips, shopping groceries and just exploring around.
The house is super clean, they have everything you need like spices, coffee filter, i mean even a hair dryer.
I recommend this property to anyone looking to get away from the city for a nice quiet weekend, we will definitely be here again. I think we have decided to make this a yearly thing.

Thank you so much Tom and Loretta we ABSOLUTELY LOVE the cabin!!
Love,
Ale and Ergi

Owner's Response: We are so glad you love our cabin. Wells is truly a quaint and quiet area, and as mentioned, not too far from a large town. The scenery is spectacular all year round with the beautiful Adirondack mountains surrounding the town with the many hiking trails and Lake Algonquin accessible to our guests to enjoy during the warmer weather. Thanks Ale and Ergi...we look forward to having you back!
