Overview

Overview

Lake Algonquin - Wells House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms plus loft bed, bath and a half, sleeps 5 adults, Wi-Fi, Cable

Welcome to Whispering Pines Wells with its own private association beach that is just a three minute walk away.

This is a four season getaway retreat that was outfitted and furnished with the vacationer in mind. The first floor has a fully equipped modern kitchen and dining area, a living room with flat screen tv and a freestanding gas fireplace, a bedroom with a new Queen size bed and a bathroom with a tub and a shower, as well as a washer and dryer.

The upper level has a loft area with a twin bed and a desk, and a master bedroom that features a queen size bed. There is also a half bath.

A large front deck and a screen porch adds outdoor living space in the warmer months & has a porch glider, adirondack chairs and a patio table.

There is a fire pit for your evening enjoyment. A gas grill is also available for you to use.

Why drive for hours when a great vacation is so close? Whispering Pines Wells is a short drive from most anywhere.

In the winter months, it is only 20 minutes to Lapland Lakes cross-country skiing and 40 minutes to Gore Mountain. In the summer and fall, there are many hikes in the area to waterfalls, mountain tops and the Northville-Lake Placid Trail. A great bike ride is the 3.5 mile loop around the lake and through the town. In the spring, you can go fishing in the lake or one of many nearby rivers.

Inside Whispering Pines you will find wifi, cable, a blu-ray player with Netflix and Pandora, books, games and puzzles and an iPod speaker. There is a fully outfitted kitchen with a k-cup coffee maker, crock pot and a blender. Outside there is a large flat yard, hammock and chairs, two kayaks, a 15' canoe and a Sunfish sailboat, with all the accessories. There are carts for transporting the watercraft the short two minute trip to the launching area.

We enjoy the Southern Adirondacks and have been vacationing in this area since we were children. For a long time, it has been a dream of ours to own a home on a lake and in the mountains. Our hope is to share our good fortune with families like you, who want to enjoy the fun and excitement of Lake Algonquin and all the magic that this region offers, but then want to retreat to the whispering pines, to reflect on the day, and dream about tomorrow.

Let us be your hosts for your next vacation.

Beautiful Cabin

  • 4 of 5
This cabin was absolutely perfect. Appliances were top of the line. Roomy and warm. Looks exactly like the photos. We stayed four days in October. The weather was a little cooler and the gas fired stove was great in the living room. Just enough to take the cool off. Used the Netflix streaming, flat screen television and Amazon Prime Video. Everyone was happy with the choices at night. Plenty of room for the 5 of us. The only down side to this property is that its so new that the "pine interior walls" caused my husband some allergy problems. Good price for the amenities offered.Enjoyed dinner out at the Alpine Grille in nearby Hope, NY. Wonderful food and service. It doesn't look like much from the outside but very comfortable inside. Enjoyed the Rock Ledge Winery about 30 minute ride. Cute little wine tasting room. Very knowledgeable employee. I am sure we will return again. Maybe summer next time.

Despite our short stay of two days we had a lovely time in this vacation home in the Adirondacks. The pictures represent a realistic image of this wonderful house where all amenities are in place.

We would definitely recommend this house and it's location!

My finance and I had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful home for three nights and four days. The beach is a short walk. The view of the mountains with the leaves changing for fall was perfect. The fire pit was used every evening. The house is clean and in order. We only used one bedroom and the mattress was very comfy. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner. Great place, exceptional value. We would definitely rent this house again and again. Thank you. Tony and TIna

Modern, quiet, perfect!

  • 5 of 5
This home is absolutely perfect. The outside has a large deck with outdoor dining set, great fire pit, plenty of chairs. The screened in porch is a great feature that we used on a few occasions. I loved that there were 3 kayaks and a canoe for us to use, and complete with carts to wheel them to the lake (which is honestly a short 2 min walk)

The inside of the home was perfect. The entire home is lined with pine wood giving it that cabin feel, and nice pine smell. The kitchen was a fantastic size for the four of us, complete with full size fridge, oven, microwave and even a dishwasher. The main level bathroom was huge, and even had a washer/dryer which came in handy. The living room was very cozy, and after a long day of hiking or kayaking, I would lounge in one of the recliners. A nice feature that I did not expect was the nice flat screen TV with cable. The came in handy during a rainy day (as did the many board game they provide!).

Overall the home was very modern, super clean, and came with everything we could possibly expect. We would absolutely recommend this home to anyone looking to get away to a nice quiet lake. The home is close to plenty of nice hikes as well. Overall great home in a nice location.
