Wells cabin description

Welcome to Singing Mountain Adirondack Camp where nature is waiting to give you a private break from the 21st Century. Want to get away from it all for a bit? We designed 'Singing Mountain' for visitors looking for a true vacation. One that will revitalize spirit, intellect and body.. Away from the hum, whir, and insistence of technology. This is a mute button ....for your every day world. A private sanctuary awaits you at 'Singing Mountain Adirondack Camp'. Enjoy the beauty of the Adirondacks in this uniquely designed, 2 story log cabin nestled at the foot of Pettit Mountain and overlooking a natural pond often visited by wildlife. This camp will accommodate up to 4 people who are looking for relaxation, privacy, outside adventure or just emptying out by doing 'nothing'.
The camp is electricity-free with hot water, refrigerator, stove and lights running quietly on a propane system.You won't believe how calm you will feel after a few days without electricity and wireless running through your system. However, cell phone service is available and WiFi is only down the road at the local coffee shop where you can enjoy free coffee and internet.
Located in the Adirondack Park which covers six million acres of a wonderland, is 2,000 miles of hiking trails, hundreds of miles of canoe routes and 42 peaks that rise more than 4,000 feet in elevation. Hiking, fishing, white water rafting, canoeing, biking, sailing and more, yet only an hour from popular destinations like Saratoga Springs , Lake George, Albany, NY and a bit further for Lake Placid. Summer here is also time for live theater, concerts , festivals, bird watching, and garage sales.

This beautiful, natural living space is perfect for renewing and getting back in touch with the important things in your life and was written up in the book 'Northeast Sanctuaries' by Jack and Marcia Kelly.

'I hate to leave now', wrote one visitor in our guest book. 'This is the first time I have written with a pen on paper and not typed on a computer, in probably over a year', she continued. 'What a great feeling.!

                      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.
