About the property

Scenic year-round, 4 bedroom home situated on Lake Algonquin in Wells, NY nestled on a quiet lake cove. Great for vacationing with multiple families. Conveniences close by without sacrificing peaceful relaxation. You and your guests will enjoy our wrap around deck, screened in porch, and cozy sunroom with incredible views of the lake and mountains. Outside, you can enjoy our boat and swimming dock or pull up an Adirondack chair to the outdoor firepit and roast some marshmallows while listening to the peaceful ambience of the Adirondacks. Newly renovated upper deck off the lakefront bedroom. Enjoy your coffee in the morning or your wine in the evening on the upper deck off the masterbedroom.

This home is an ideal setting for family reunions with a large living room, newly renovated kitchen/dining room thats great for meals and family game night. Bedroom 1 and 2 each has a queen size bed, bedroom 3 has a queen size bed along with a bunkbed, bedroom 4 has two bunkbeds, the bottom bunks are full size beds and the top are twin.The town of Wells is a sleepy locale straight out of a Hallmark movie. Children's playground, tennis courts, and a pavilion with picnic tables are just across the street. Public boat launch nearby. Sandy town beach a 10 minute walk down the road. 3 min or 10 minute walk to two General Stores for last minute needs (including take out pizza, movie rentals, beer, soda, & gifts) and an ice cream stand to keep the kids happy. There's even a cute coffee shop just a 5 minute walk away for those mornings when you want to sneak away!

Nothing compares to autumn in the Adirondacks. Beautiful colors from the surrounding mountains reflect perfectly off the glass-like lake. Canoe and Kayak lovers will marvel at the wildlife in the connecting river as their paddles cut gracefully through tranquil waters. Ambitious bikers ride the bike route to other scenic lakes in the Adirondacks. Just a half hour away in North Creek, you can even find the recently-viral rail bikes!

In the winter enjoy the many outdoor activitues in the area. After a day of skiing, snowmobiling, sledding, ice skating or a simple walk, come into the warmth of our indoor wood stove. The boot room keeps all of your winter belongings out of the way yet dry and ready for your next winter adventure.

If you're looking for a peaceful vacation away from it all, consider our home on Lake Algonquin!

Wells is approximately 1.25 hours northwest of Albany, NY
