Pam Broiles purchased this cabin in 1989
My husband, two children and I vacationed for a week in this lovely cabin in the southern Adirondacks during the peak fall foilage season of 2009. This cabin is a wonderful getaway for small families and/or friends. Rustic, but not too rustic with propane fueled lanterns, hot water and even a refrigeration system. We were surprise attacked by cooler temperatures than expected, but the wood-burner kept things snug and warm for our nightly round of family charades, puzzles and general relaxation. The owners are very unobtrusive and give you carte blanche on the property while you are there with guest books outlining good leads on excursions and secret spots you might not otherwise hear about. Our number one recommendation is the Adirondack Museum, which is described as the Smithsonian of the Adirondack's and does not disappoint. Thank you for a great family getaway in a clean, quiet and lovely environment. The only reason I didn't rate this "excellent, five stars" was because the weather was quite bad the entire time, which obviously has nothing to do with the cabin and it's comforts and cannot be helped.
Just arrived home from a stay at Singing Mountain and all I can say is "Wow." I knew the cabin would be great based on the reviews and pictures, but quite honestly, they do not tell the whole story. You have to experience it first hand. The drive up to the property and the initial look-see was so exciting, even my dog was amazed. We enjoyed the deck, pond and wildlife very much. It is equipped with everything you need relax, regain and restore. I didn't think about work once (and that's a first). The unique architecture, private setting, access to all the sights, hikes, and attractions the area offers are worth noting. If you stay, you'll also note the cool objects displayed throughout the cabin and surrounding property that make you think and wonder "where did this come from?!" I agree with many of the other reviews... Magical. My dog is currently pouting because she'd rather be there than home. We will be back. Thanks Pam and Len for sharing this piece of heaven!
If you are looking for a quiet little place in the ADKs...look no further. At this cabin, you will witness numerous hummingbirds around the feeder at any given time. At dusk and throughout the night you will hear the barred owls...from very close by. We found a lot of newts each morning and the dragonflies are simply enormous! I was a little hesitant on staying at a place off the grid, but there was nothing to worry about. There's everything you need, from propane wall lanterns around the place to a full fridge (in a very interesting location I may add). The cabin itself though is probably the coolest part. It has an energy all its own. It's a hard place to describe but there's something truly magical about it. Extraordinarily eclectic and can't wait to go back soon!
I cannot say enough how lovely this place is. Pam has thought of absolutely everything to make people as comfortable as possible. Both of my children said immediately, ok can we live here permanently ;) I could really go on and on about how beautiful, peaceful and wonderful this place it, but you must experience it for yourself. A wonderful place to sit back and relax and re-charge your life. Thank you Pam for being such a lovely person and sharing your place with us.
Singing Mountain is a great cabin for a family that wants to get away and enjoy the outdoors. The cabin has a great rustic feel and overlooks a beautiful pond. We also like that there is no electricity ( cabin runs on propane) and gives us more time to read and play board games well into the night. There is a great outdoor covered deck that overlooks the pond.
Also in the town of Wells there is a great beach that has a diving board and deep lake swimming!
Overall the location is great, clean and near lots of hiking trails and 15 minutes away from restaurants and grocery stores.
I highly recommend Pam's cabin if your looking for a place to get away from it all and love the outdoors.
When you book a cabin anywhere there's always a slight anxiety because sometimes pictures dont show the whole story. Id have to say that the pictures dont do this place justice. It is truly amazing to see the ingenuity and creativity that was put into this place. I have stayed in quite a few cabins and believe this is my favorite so far. I havent slept so sound like i did this weekend. The landscape is beautiful and there is tons of forest to explore. the propane system worked great and it was nice to go to the fridge a open a cold one too! For the price, hospitality, and charm of this place, I will be back again! Thank you so much for allowing us to opportunity to experience your little piece of Heaven!!
The best of both worlds.'Singing Mountain Adirondack Camp' is located one and a half miles from the small village of Wells. On your stroll through town you may like to visit the beach, kayak, canoe or fish in Lake Algonquin, play some tennis, while the kids enjoy the playground, check out the library and small shops or grab a snack at the local cafe. The camp is close to hiking and dirt bike trails, many lakes and rivers to fish and boat in. Nature outside your front door but one hour from Saratoga, Lake George, Albany,Glens Falls and all they have to offer.
Other Activities: Wells is a small village of about 750 people. It's a great place to settle in, shake off technology and get re-acquainted with the natural world around you. The four mile hike around Lake Algonquin is a favorite fitness route, and every trail or dirt road leads to waterfalls, ponds, ancient forests. This area is famous for its geological history and sea fossils are often found. In the last few years several bald eagles have been reported to bird watchers delight. While sitting on the porch of 'Singing Mountain' overlooking the pond, you'll be the guest of many animals who come to drink. Ducks, turtles, deer, turkeys, blue herons. With the absence of street lights, this is THE place for star gazers. You've never seen the Milky Way glow like it does here. Take a blanket to lie on, look up and find amazement and wonder again.
