Owner info

About the owner: Tom has lived in the southern Adirondack area his whole life and Loretta grew up on Long Island. Despite our different backgrounds, we both share a love of the outdoors and nature.

Why the Owner Chose Wells:
This property has been in Tom's family for many, many years. It has been completely renovated. Our goal is to provide a memorable getaway for all of our guests. We are very attentive to special requests and provide a 'Welcome Book' that is full of information on 'things to do' in the area. We are meticulous when it comes to the cleanliness of the cabin and we believe there is everything there that our guests would expect for a stay.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property gets plenty of sunshine throughout the day. The property has lake rights and access is very close. We offer kayaks, bicycles, snowshoes, hammock, fire pit and we supply the wood! No additional costs for these amenities. There are many bears inside the cabin. One of our previous guests even left us count of every bear in every room!
