Wells Cabin Rental Photos and Description

One bedroom with loft with two twin beds and one futon chair. Sleeps 5.

Newly constructed log sided cabin with all new appliances and furnishings. Private dock on Lake Algonquin and a three minute walk to the Town Beach (we'll even supply a wagon to transport those beach chairs, cooler and beach toys). One mile from the boat launch.

One bathroom with tub and shower and washer/dryer. Fully furnished modern kitchen with stainless electric stove, microwave and refrigerator. Living room with 32' flat screen TV with built in DVD player, Dish Network, WiFi and furnished with unique Adirondack style furniture.

A full size screened in porch is perfect for reading, relaxing (or maybe napping) in the afternoon or a peaceful dinner in the evening. The kids will probably want to sleep out there so don't forget the air mattress and sleeping bags.

Take a short walk to Torts Ice Cream Shop or the Community Hall for tennis, basketball or the playground. Enjoy dinner at the Alpine Restaurant and don't miss the experience (and great food) of stepping back forty years into an authentic, friendly Adirondack family owned diner at the Hope Diner just five miles south of town.

We are located about a 1 hour scenic drive to Lake George and The Great Escape Theme Park and the Adirondack Museum at Blue Mountain Lake so you can take a day trip and still return to the peace and quiet of your cabin in the woods.

We provide an ideal cabin for the family that wants to experience an Adirondack vacation in the woods with the convenience of nearby lake access, hiking, boating or just exploring. An experience that will keep you coming back year after year.

It's nice to stay at a place where the owners, Gerry and Susan, take pride in the property. Will be staying at Ruby Hill Cabins again.

Ruby Hills Cabins are quiet and well maintained. Everything we needed was provided!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing weekend knowing that no matter where we travelled during the day, we had a place to call home. We had the pleasure of watching the turkeys and their poults as they wandered through the property. I would suggest that the master bed have some further support in the middle as it was slightly uncomfortable due to the sloping of the mattress. The cabin was clean and well furnished, the firepit was secluded and enjoyed in the evenings. We look forward to a future stay with you!!

A wonderful trip!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was wonderfully isolated. Near the beach and kayak dock and that's about all we wanted. Gerry and Susan were attentive to our needs and maintain two beautiful cabins in Wells.

Peaceful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very clean and woodsy yet modern. Great family gathering by the fire pit at night. Bring the bikes because the town is easy bike riding. The best part for us is that Gerry and Susan let us use the kayaks and canoe which was great ! They are very nice and only a phone call away if you need something. We highly recommend renting here if you like a peaceful retreat that even kids enjoy. Our kids are 17,13 and 9. Lake George is not far and whitewater rafting not far. There's a diner and ice cream in Speculator only 15 minutes away. There's hiking very close by and a lake beach a minute walk away. 😊򒠠Oh, and the fishing is great!

The Cabin is lovely

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four with 2 little boys in tow (3 years old) and we drove up to the cabin and stayed a long weekend and it was such a pleasure. The cabin was well-kept and the carpentry is rustic and gorgeous. The space is cozy and we had a great time at the nearby lake and seeing the drive-in movie at the Ozoner nearby. What a nice trip!
