Property description

This is a unique and fully equipped cabin with a knotty pine interior, fireplace, cathedral ceilings, antique and custom built rustic furniture, large screened in porch and lake rights to a private association beach. This is a great getaway for a romantic couple, small family looking to enjoy the mountains and lake or good friends who want to catch up and enjoy time together. Everything is here that you will need~your home away from home! Master bedroom has a queen bed, 2nd room has a custom built-in bunk bed with a double on bottom and single on top & small loft that sleeps one. Large screened in porch adds 340 sq ft. of outdoor living space in the warmer months & has a comfy patio sectional couch to watch the hummingbirds and wildlife, ADK chairs and a dining table. We are situated in a quiet hamlet that has a private associaton beach that is just a short walk away. Many scenic hikes to waterfalls, great fishing, fire pit, grill, wifi, Netflix, HuluPlus, free tennis and basketball courts in town and 2 kayaks and 2 sets of snowshoes.
30 minutes to Gore Mountain, 15 to Oak Mountain and Lapland Lake X-country. 1 hour to Lake George and Saratoga.


Master Bedroom: The master has a queen bed, ceiling fan, antiques, Adirondack furnishings and a sliding glass door that leads out to the screened in porch.
All quilts, blankets, mattress and pillow covers are washed on a regular basis.

Bunk Room: The bunk room has custom built in bunk beds with a double on the bottom and a single on the top. They were built with more space between them so they are comfortable, extremely sturdy and have plenty of head room for teenagers and adults.

Treehouse Loft: The loft is for one older child or young adult. We call it the 'Treehouse' because it is like sleeping in one! You cannot stand in it and do have to go up a sturdy set of stairs.

Screened in Porch: The screened in porch is 340 sq ft. of extra outdoor living space and overlooks the gardens and beautiful pines. It has a special screen to keep out the Adirondack 'no see-ums' . There is a patio sectional couch that can be separated into 4 seats for your comfort, 2 Adirondack chairs, dining room table and hutch. We also have an outside patio table with umbrella. There are lots of hummingbirds in the spring and summer and birds who make their homes in our birdhouses.

This house is professionally cleaned after each guest.
Check in is after 4 p.m. and check out is before 11 a.m.

Location

Nearest Airport
Albany International Airport

Car: Necessary

Wells is a quiet town with very few tourists. Everything in the town is within walking distance. The fishing pier and boat launch for motor boats is only 1/4 mile away. Lake Algonquin is a smaller lake (4 miles around) that allows motor boats and is great for kayaking, canoeing, fishing and swimming. Our private association beach is never crowded and has stunning views of the lake and mountains. We provide all the local happenings and directions to hikes, stores, dining and fun things to do in the area.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I have been vacationing in Wells at my grandfathers cottage for my entire life. When I married my husband, he also loved vacationing in the town and we decided to purchased our own place and make it our own. I fell in love with Wells and the friendly people who live in this town. Lake Algonquin is clean and stunningly beautiful!

Why the Owner Chose Wells:
We completely gutted this 1930's cabin and added on an addition. It took 4 years of weekends and vacations to finish but we had a blast doing it and just love the results! Frank did all the craftsmanship himself and also made many pieces of the furniture throughout the cabin. Wells is a quiet and peaceful town and is a great break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This cabin is in a hamlet called the Jolie Montaigne Beach Association which gives us access to the lake. The beach is never overcrowded and has a stunning view of lake.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Lake Algonquin is a smaller lake so we don't get the high speed boats and lake traffic that many of the larger lakes get. Motor boats are allowed but it is also great for kayaking, fishing and swimming.
