About Mark and Debby Hodgkins

We live in Charlton, NY but we have our lake house on the other end Lake Algonquin also!

Mark is an avid water skiier! There is a AWSA demensioned slalom course at the south end of the lake!

Mark and Debby Hodgkins purchased this house in 2014

Why Mark and Debby Hodgkins chose New York

We have enjoyed this lake for over 20yrs and decided to invest in this wonderful property when it became available because of the quality of the building and setting.

What makes this house unique

We love lake Algonquin because of the mountain views and the experience of the quaint town. It is not commercialized like other lakes in the Adirondacks. The lake is calm and easy to kayak and canoe on. There are beautiful eagles flying over head and tiny humming birds at the feeders. It is close enough to attractions for day trips but we can also come back to the peace and tranquility we love! The building is well done with wood floors and great windows, the bathrooms and kitchen are clean and up to date. We even have central air and a backup generator so you are always comfortable and at ease.

Nice little cottage on the lake!

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time at the cottage. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay.

We practically lived in the screened porch, and out on the deck. We canoed or kayaked almost every day.

The surrounding area has many waterfalls, and hikes that are beautiful.

Fishing was also good. Perch, bass, and sunfish. Finally, Susie our dog, loved the place.

It was like her second home.

All in all a great vacation.

Wells ny

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely. The house is comfortable, roomy and decorated adorably. The owners have thought if and provided all the necessities. We had a great time kayaking, fishing, hiking and golfing. We and our dog enjoyed exploring and being so close to the lake. We also built some fires in the fire pit. Found 2 good restaurants, Alpine and melody's.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Debbie does a great job to get this cabin ready to move in. The place was spotless and well stocked with the necessary things needed for a week long stay. An ample supply of GOURMET firewood was also much appreciated. The welcome cookies were also very good. I would also like to note that i took my 85 yr old mom with me and she was able to navigate the place with no problems.

Lovely, peaceful, clean

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, clean, peaceful. Had everything we could possibly need. Love the screened-in porch with the Adirondak chairs, and eating on the back deck. A wonderful place for a relaxing vacation.
