VACATION HOME W/ LAKE RIGHTS - FAMILY FRIENDLY, THREE MINUTE WALK TO BEACH

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.

A WONDERFUL PLACE TO SPEND SOME DAYS

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure to stay and feel "at home" in Wells.
This house is a great place to go. We went with our little baby and we had lots of fun in the Adirondacks. Thanks to the owners who maintain this wonderful place. We have been 2 people and a baby and mostly used the first floor but it would perfectly fit 2 more people. Wells is a nice place to stay. Not to deep in the Adirondacks but already deep enough to explore everything easily.

We recommend to go there!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very kind words. We want our guests to "feel at home" when they stay with us. We also think your description of the town of Wells was "spot on!" We are very happy that you enjoyed your time in Wells. We would love to have you come back and stay with us again.

OUTSTANDING!

  • 5 of 5
This place was perfect. My friends and I were looking for a getaway from NYC and we couldn't have asked for a better cabin to stay in. It was nice/new, spacious for five people, and the decor was bear-themed! The place was even better than the description, and it was a lovely weekend!

BEAUTIFUL, JUST LIKE THE PICTURES

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent 3 nights in this beautiful log home, along with our toddler and my husband's parents. It looks beautiful and comfortable in the pictures, and it has the same feeling in real life (this isn't always the case!) The kitchen is spacious and well-appointed, including a fresh sponge for our dish-washing and counter cleaning needs. It was nice to see a few condiments in the fridge, too, because we didn't buy everything we needed, as we were just staying for a few days.

The bedrooms and loft bed area were beautiful and comfortable. The décor all fits together to create a very pleasant atmosphere. It was very convenient to have a 1/2 bath upstairs.

The stairs are quite steep, which was a bit of a worry with our toddler, but we managed to keep him safe. The owners have stuffed animals and books for kids, and our little guy had a great time exploring and making "friends" in the house. All in all, it was quite child-proof.

The neighborhood, at least at this time of year, is very quiet. Being there felt like an escape from the hectic pace of the East Coast. We took many walks around the neighborhood, and for the most part, the neighbors were friendly. The neighbors near the boat launch were quite rude, unfortunately, so stay away from that area if possible. Plenty of other places to spend your time around the peaceful lake.

It was wonderful to have access to the canoe and kayaks! The wheeled contraption made it fairly easy to transport the boats to the water, and once I started paddling, I felt calmer than I have in months. I had a great time admiring the reflection of autumn leaves on the water, and traveling slowly along the shoreline. I was the only person on the whole lake!

In review, the cabin is very clean, comfortable, cozy, well-appointed and well-stocked. We'd stay there again. Thanks, Paul and Monica!

HEAVENLY BEAUTIFUL PERFECT VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
As soon as we stepped inside, our reaction was "oh my God !" what a beautiful house. We felt we were in dreamland. Beautiful cozy house with magnificent decoration. Everything was placed in such an order that we felt homely in no time. Everyone including our 3 yr. old and 62 yr. mom fell in love with the place. Paul and Monica were extremely responsive starting from the inquiry, reservation, during stay and even after we left the place. It was pleasure to communicate with Paul and Monica. They provided valuable information regarding various events and places around the town and we took full advantage of that which made our vacation more enjoyable cutting down research time. The lake is just across the street which makes it an ideal place for relaxation. Everyone found their most favorite spot in the house i.e. my mom love gas fire place, our 3 yr old loved rocking and reclining hugging stuffed bear bigger than her in size watching family movies on ABCFamily channel. Every single equipments in the house is high-end (Bose sound bar and Logitech Harmony 650 universal remote just for e.g.). We all felt sad leaving the place and going back to our own home and that feelings tells much more than everything I have written. We are missing it even after coming back.
Thanks Paul and Monica for sharing your paradise with us as we truly enjoyed and we are looking forward to come back again next year.

WONDERFUL COTTAGE!!

  • 5 of 5
We just came back from a week long vacation in Wells. Paul and Monica's cottage is the place to go. It was clean, comfortable with lots of amenities. We were able to enjoy the canoe and kayaks on the lake directly across the street.
The kitchen was well supplied with everything we needed to cook our meals. It even had a rack of spices and a sample of k cups available for our use!
The screened in porch was lovely...a great place to read a book on the glider or work a puzzle.
Paul and Monica were quick to respond to all our questions and needs.
We hated to see our week come to an end. Hope to go back!
