This is a great getaway for a romantic couple, small family looking to enjoy the mountains and lake or good friends who want to catch up and enjoy time together. Everything is here that you will need~your home away from home! Master bedroom has a queen bed, 2nd room has a custom built-in bunk bed with a double on bottom and single on top & small loft that sleeps one. Large screened in porch adds 340 sq ft. of outdoor living space in the warmer months & has a comfy patio sectional couch to watch the hummingbirds and wildlife, ADK chairs and a dining table. We are situated in a quiet hamlet that has a private assoc. beach that is just a short walk away, 20 minutes to X-country and 1/2 hr to Gore Mnt..

All quilts, blankets, mattress and pillow covers are washed on a regular basis.

Bunk Room: The bunk room has custom built in bunk beds with a double on the bottom and a single on the top. They were built with more space between them so they are comfortable, extremely sturdy and have plenty of head room for teenagers and adults.

Treehouse Loft: The loft is for one older child or young adult. We call it the 'Treehouse' because it is like sleeping in one! You cannot stand in it and do have to go up a sturdy set of stairs.

Screened in Porch: The screened in porch is 340 sq ft. of extra outdoor living space and overlooks the gardens and beautiful pines. It has a special screen to keep out the Adirondack 'no see-ums' . There is a patio sectional couch that can be separated into 4 seats for your comfort, 2 Adirondack chairs, dining room table and hutch. We also have an outside patio table with umbrella. There are lots of hummingbirds in the spring and summer and birds who make their homes in our birdhouses.

I have been vacationing in Wells at my grandfathers cottage for my entire life. When I married my husband, he also fell in love with the town and we decided to purchased our own place and make it our own. I fell in love with Wells and the friendly people who live in this town. Lake Algonquin is clean and stunningly beautiful!

Jean Barbara purchased this house in 2005

We completely gutted this 1930's cabin and added on an addition. It took 4 years of weekends and vacations to finish but we had a blast doing it just love the results! Frank did all the craftsmanship himself and also made many pieces of the furniture throughout the cabin.

Wells is a quiet and peaceful town and is a great break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This cabin is in a hamlet called the Jolie Montaigne Beach Association which gives us access to the lake. The beach is never overcrowded and has a stunning view of lake.

Lake Algonquin is a smaller lake so we don't get the high speed boats and lake traffic that many of the larger lakes get. Motor boats are allowed but it is also great for kayaking, fishing and swimming.

Perfect escape

My family (which includes a one-year-old) couldn't have asked for a better week-long escape. The weather was far from perfect, but it didn't matter because the cabin was as close to perfect as it gets. Every square inch of space has been authentically and lovingly restored. Any one looking for a mountain retreat will not be disappointed!

We really enjoyed our stay and the Cabin and area are pristine. The owners are wonderful and were a joy to work with from start to finish. You need nothing as everything is provided. The kayaks are a blast and the lake is very private. The perfect Adirondack vacation spot.

Awesome honeymoon getaway!!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon here. The cabin was beautiful and just as described online. Very clean & well-maintained. We really enjoyed the screened in porch; perfect for drinking coffee and enjoying breakfast. We cooked dinner on the grill outside, and really enjoyed eating dinner by the fireplace inside. The cabin was not super huge, but was just the right size. It could also easily accomodate a family of five, as we did not even use the extra bedroom or loft bed. Especially during the warmer months, there is plenty of space to spread out with the screened in porch.

The neighborhood was very quiet and relaxing. And the house was only a short walk from the lake, which was absolutely beautiful! We really regretted not using the kayaks, but we did get the chance to walk to the public beach and swim.

The owners were super hospitable and accomadating. They left us a welcome package/honeymoon gift. They called once during the middle of the week to make sure all was going fine and if we needed anything else. They also left instructions on all the great places to eat and hike, which there are plenty of.

We would definitely come again!!

Gorgeous Cabin - Serene Visit - Loved that Porch!

Family spent a fabulous week here, the place is immaculate - much nicer than my own home even. it was even nicer than the pictures.

Everything we needed was here, loved the fireplace, couldn't get the kids down from the lovely loft area, but spent most of our time on sofa on the screened in porch playing games, reading and even out most meals out there.

The nearby beach was perfect for the kids, they loved the town beach too with the diving board.

Thank you, thank you, thank you...we will return!

What a wonderful break from our busy lives! It's unanimous....the screened in porch is the best, firepit came in a close second. But, our 7 year old son LOVED the loft the most - he wished he could sty up there all day! We may build one in our barn. thanks for the inspiration!
