Visit Longview, our year round lake front home in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, located on quiet Lake Algonquin in the town of Wells. Enjoy crisp cool Fall days and star filled nights around the campfire. Summer fun includes swimming, boating, hiking. Lake George is less than an hour away. Saratoga even closer. Autumn brings breathtaking colors and fabulous mountain views, hunting and hiking. The home is recently renovated (so no pets, please) with updated kitchen and bathrooms and appliances, stainless pots and pans, new floors, lots of charm, and working fireplace (gas insert) in the living room. Step out onto the large screened-in porch facing the lake and private dock. Ski at nearby Oak Mt. or Gore Mt. which is 30 mins. away. Snowmobile trails nearby. Watch the deer on the lake at sundown during the winter. Rest and relax in the mountains with the lake outside your door surrounded by nature. 25 and over to rent, please.
*We do require a 3 night minimum during the holidays and holiday weekends.*
Longview: Summer is great in the Adirondacks. Sit on the dock and daydream or read. Watch the herons and occasional eagle or otter. Watch numerous hummingbirds at the feeder. Take a kayak ride and check out the beaver dam. Canoe to the beach for lunch. Go for a hike or spend the day in Lake George. Build a campfire in the yard and roast marshmallows. Tennis courts available in town.
Fall and Winter are fabulous times to be in the Adirondacks. Relax in front of the fireplace and watch the leaves float by or watch the snow fall. Hike, hunt, ski, snowmobile or do nothing. Gore Mt. is a half hour away. Lapland Lake Resort is 10 mins. away if you're into cross country skiing.

About the owner: Barbara has been vacationing in Wells since childhood. She lived here through her high school years and would live here year round if she could. Through Barbara Jim discovered Wells and loves it, too. Four generations of the family have been traveling to Wells to enjoy the quaint town and lovely quiet lake for over 50 years. We invite you to come see for yourselves!
Why the Owner Chose Wells, NY, USA:
We purchased Longview in 2005 and gutted it to the studs. Our aim was to make it into a home that we would want to stay in. All the comforts of home including a gas insert in the fireplace and a fully stocked kitchen. The screened porch is a big plus and a favorite of our guests. Lots of wild life going by on the lake year round.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house has a much used fire pit in the yard for gathering under star filled skies. In case of stormy weather the house is stocked w/ books, cds, dvds, board games, puzzles and even children's books and movies. We own another home 'down the road a piece' so are nearby most of the time should you need anything during your stay.
