Tom has lived in the southern Adirondack area his whole life and Loretta has always lived on Long Island. Despite the difference in miles, we both share a love of the outdoors and nature.

This property has been in Tom's family for many, many years. It has been completely renovated. Our goal is to provide a memorable getaway for all of our guests. We are very attentive to special requests and provide a 'Welcome Book' that is full of information on 'things to do' in the area. We are meticulous when it comes to the cleanliness of the cabin and we believe there is everything there that our guests would expect for a stay.

The property gets plenty of sunshine throughout the day. The property has lake rights and access is very close.

EXCELLENT CABIN

  • 4 of 5
The Lazy Bear Cabin was beautifully decorated and perfect for our weekend. So comfortable, you will feel like you are at home, and great location to access all that the Adirondacks has. Wonderful owners. We definitely will be coming back to the Adirondacks and look forward to staying at the Lazy Bear Cabin.

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!

The cabin in extremely clean and comfortable. From the moment we entered the property, we couldn't help notice how spotless the place was. The property is not far from great hiking trails. Tom and Loretta did a great job of welcoming my family. They had everything we needed at the cabin ready for us. They helped start a new family tradition for us. See you next Fall Tom and Loretta.

GREAT VACATION SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the lazy bear cabin was perfect! The cabin was incredibly clean and comfortable. The owners are very helpful and ensure you have everything you need to make the most of your get away. The cabin is cozy and beautiful. It was exactly what I was looking for, a private get away that wasn't too far from things to do, kayaking, horseback riding, plenty of restaurants, shopping, and even go carting and mini golf. I would recommend it to anyone. We will definitely be back!
