Property description

Cute home for two with gorgeous lake and mountain views.

This is a great area for outdoor activities. Enjoy a small town atmosphere with big time Adirondack adventures.

We call her 'Trailer Liscious'. She's a 1960's mobile home that has been transformed to an open, modern space with oversized windows that brings the outside in. Has a cozy interior fireplace, outside fire pit, weber grill, kayaks and nice bikes. Snowshoes in winter.

Great year round spot to enjoy hikes to our local waterfalls, kayak, swim or x country ski and snowshoe out front, bike around the lake, or take drives to the many other lakes nearby. We have a land line phone for local and long distance phone calls (Verizon cell service only up here), wifi internet, microwave, full kitchen, Netflix on our flat screen TV, lots of great books and DVD's and games. No cable though, we come here to get away from the news!

Sleeps two in a comfortable West Elm double bed with nice linens.

We supply all the local scoop for hikes, waterfalls, antiquing and restaurants. Nearby there is golf, horseback riding and whitewater rafting. Skiing in winter is terrific - both x country and downhill are nearby, this is snowmobile country, local rentals available.

There is a small road between us and the lake, easy swimming or kayaking access.

BEST things about this house? It's cheap, it's clean, very comfortable, easy and comes with all you need - kayaks, bikes, grills, fireplace, fire pit. The lake and mountain views are unobstructed and lined by pine trees, creating a feeling of privacy rarely found on property so close to the lake.

The HASSLES with this house? RECYCLES. Guests must agree to follow the towns strict recycle rules - they must be kept clean and separate from garbage. We then have to take them to the dump and separate them into bins by hand. We simply cannot handle this task if large amounts are left. So - our general rule here is similar to camping. If you brought it in, you must agree to take it out! Leaving small amounts (less than one bag full) are fine, and will be hauled to dump by our fabulous housekeeper.

Rachel Ray Endorsement!: Trailer Liscious was featured in Rachel Rays Magazine as one of her recommended romantic, cheap getaways in her Valentines Day edition!

No smoking, no pets please. Sleeps 2 persons max.

Car: Necessary

Lake Algonquin is located in Wells, New York, southern Adirondack Mountains. Quiet town, not a lot of tourists (there are no hotels!) so you may have the lake all to yourselves, especially midweek.

The area is stunningly beautiful...with mountain hikes, waterfalls and lots of lakes. We will share all the local remote spots, most of which you would never find without local assistance!

In warmer weather we supply kayaks for exploring the lake and bikes for exploring around it. Great fishing on Lake Algonquin, free tennis and basketball courts in town. We supply a list of antique shops, recommended local restaurants, hikes and other things to do. Nearby there is golf, horseback riding and whitewater rafting.

It is a winter wonderland here during the snow season! We supply 2 sets of snowshoes, skiing is terrific - both x country and downhill. Small ice skating rink in town, ice fishing abounds, and there are car and snowmobile races on this lake that are thrilling to watch, and can be seen from the comfort of indoors. Rent snowmobiles - hundreds of miles of groomed trails!

Golf: Public golf 15 minutes away in Speculator, NY

Ski Gore - fabulous, never a long line - reasonable rates - spectacular views we LOVE Gore!

Ski Oak Mt - 12 minutes away, small but beautiful views of local lake and mountains, great for beginners and kids.

Cross Country Ski at Lapland Lake - Finnish flavor, tons of trails, lake, reindeer, nice restaurant, very down home feel to it, this is our favorite.

Cross Country Ski at Garnett Hill - very nice - near Gore

Cross Country Ski out front across our lake - bring your own skis!

Snowmobile trails are famous up here - rent in Speculator, they have guides as well.

Snowshoe: we provide 2 sets, go anywhere in woods near house, across lake or on the many trails around - we recommend hiking to the waterfalls which are gorgeous in winter with all the ice.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: Maura has been coming to Lake Algonquin her entire life, and knew as a small child she would have her own home here. Now she and her husband David own three rental houses in addition to the family camp. We enjoy all the year round outdoor fun - we ski, swim, kayak, paddle board, snowmobile, hike, antique, bbq and sometimes do absolutely nothing. We use them all, we rent them all. It's been a great experience sharing what we love so much with others.

Why Wells:
The Trailer Liscious Experience: This trailer was purchased for the location - one of the best views on this very picturesque and quaint lake. The original plan was to use it for a few years for extra sleeping room, then tear it down and build a house. However, after staying here a couple of seasons and putting a little (OK a Lot!) of elbow grease into brightening her up, we recognized the efficiency and practicality of keeping the trailer. It is solid as a rock, local craftsmen have enhanced her with an abundance of picture windows to capture the view, we now have a fireplace, efficient heat and winter plumbing. She's clean, modern, warm and here to stay! We love her and so do our guests!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It is unique to find a cozy, clean, comfy and yet affordable get away home for just two people. The views are fabulous. This is a small town on a beautiful lake that never gets very crowded, that is hard to find these days. We do our best to supply NICE things for a NICE experience for all our guests. You will have access to very good kayaks, bikes, snowshoes, linens, towels, lots of spices, paper towels, napkins, tin foil - things you may not think to bring and most vacation rentals do not supply. We try to make it easy and breezy for you! In winter deer and wild turkeys surround the house (our neighbors feed them).
