About Bonnie

I purchased this cottage to use as my own get away in 2005. After living up there in the summer, I retired and spent a year living there full time. I have moved into a larger home in the Wells area and wanted to share my beautiful cottage with vacationers.

Bonnie purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Bonnie chose New York

When I was growing up my family used to go camping in the Sacandaga Campground which was about 3 miles south of the town of Wells. Ever since that time I have continued to vacation there, and now that I am retired I live here year round.

What makes this cottage unique

Wells is the best little town in the Adirondacks. The people are so friendly and nice I just love it up here. Many of the people who live here year round were renters and then decided to buy their own places because it was so nice.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a cozy inviting cottage this is! Wells has so much going on in the wintertime. There were actually cars racing on the ice like a real racetrack this weekend. The snow is beautiful for snowshoeing or snowmobiling. You can take the snowmobile right from the cottage and go out on the lake or on the trails nearby. Great time - thanks!

Great little family friendly cabin

  • 4 of 5

My husband and two young kids really enjoyed our stay at the house. The house had everything we needed--we loved the deck and the retractable awning! It is a cozy spot with a short walk to lake access. We enjoyed several nearby hikes to some beautiful views, swimming at the beaches and wading around the river.

Perfect Little Getaway Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our daughter stayed at this cozy cabin for four days in August. It was the perfect location, steps from the lake algonquin and town. It's in a beautiful wooded area, very quiet and serene. There is a large deck, bbq and fire pit outside with a view of the lake from the back yard. The inside has two small rooms a kitchen, bathroom and enclosed porch. Everything is clean and well kept! We enjoyed quiet walks in the neighborhood and fishing nearby. We've already recommended the listing to our family members who frequently visit Wells - they can't wait to book a weekend here!

Just as described ADORABLE cozy cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this ADORABLE cozy cottage for 10 days. It is exactly as described, and just a short walk to the private beach. It was clean and very well maintained, the beach theme throughout the cottage made it a truly relaxing environment. The spacious porch was were we spent many nights just star gazing and enjoying the quiet night.

There is so much to do in this small town, many hiking trails, private and public lake, delicious ice cream, and so much in the surrounding areas. I would highly recommend this cottage and we plan on returning every year. I CANNOT thank Bonnie enough for a wonderful vacation!!!

Cute and Cozy Vacation Hideaway - Five Stars

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 9 nights in this cute and cozy cottage, and had a wonderful time. After a day of activity it was a welcome and relaxing place to come “home” to. The beach themed enclosed porch was perfect for curling up with a good book or watching a little TV in the evening – very cozy indeed! Lake Algonquin is beautiful and the private beach is just a couple of minutes walk away. My husband enjoyed fishing in the river just below the dam, less than a 10-minute walk from the cabin, and even caught some fish!

The cottage itself is in a pretty, quiet area and is shaded by massive white pines with flower gardens and even some blueberry bushes. Owner Bonnie was very accommodating and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We highly recommend this property for a fun and relaxing time in the Lake Algonquin area.
