Maura is a lifelong Adirondacker, her family has been vacationing in Wells for 4 generations. David and Maura spend lots of time here in all seasons, and have fallen in love with renovating houses. We now have 4 lakeside renovated homes, plus the original family camp, all available for vacation rental.
Why Maura chose Wells
Stunning Views, Luxury Inside, Rugged Adirondacks Outside
What makes this House unique
We love the fact that this house used to be the scariest one in town....but we always thought it must have the best view...and we were right! We renovated in 2010, it now has all the comforts of a modern luxury year round home combined with reclaimed wood floors with antique furnishings and features...and was redesigned to best capture those views! Amenities include kayaks, bikes, stand up paddle board, snowshoes, Weber Grill, Firepit, picnic table. Fishing pier across the street. Wireless Internet, 40' flat screen, an Alexa sound system, Chefs Kitchen with killer views while cooking! Great master queen bedroom with views as well.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Farmhouse. We found the accommodation to be what they were advertised to be. They were very clean and very well stocked. The owners were very easy to work with. Thank you Maura and Dave.
Great location, lovely home
Lovely stay at the Farmhouse
The house is wonderful, beautifully decorated, comfortable and equipped with everything you'd need. It's definitely on my list of experiences to repeat. And many thanks to Maura for the great communications and answering questions.
Loved our getaway
We can’t put into words how perfect our honeymoon was. We wanted a quiet, out of the way place and that’s exactly what we got.
Fully stocked kitchen was great for us as we love to cook.
The view was lovely- decor of the house was so well done!!
Bed was comfy.
Temp of the house perfect.
There was not much to do around the Area in late October. But we branched out and found plenty within an hour driving distance, and the drives were very pretty.
Our second time staying at one of Dave and Maura’s properties and we look forward to trying more.
The Farmhouse is very clean, very charming and decorated beautifully. The lake view is breathtaking!
The Farmhouse was exactly what sisters and I were looking for! It is very clean, very charming and decorated beautifully. The owners really put a lot of thought into every detail big and small. The views of the lake are just lovely. There is a road you must cross to access the lake, but it is not a big deal. You are literally looking out onto the lake with no visual obstructions. My family and I enjoyed the open floor plan of the kitchen, dining area and the seating area looking out onto the lake. There is a gas fireplace in the seating area, and it not only provided heat but it added charm and a beautiful visual as we prepared our meals, dined, played board games or just daydreamed looking out onto the lake. There were no unexpected hitches to the Farmhouse. We were very pleased. I would highly recommend this property to family and friends. There are stairs to get to the bedrooms so if you have an elderly person in your party that cannot handle stairs, this might not be the rental for you then. If stairs are not an issue, then RENT THIS PLACE! It really was a wonderful experience.
Beautiful authentic farm house.
Clean, really comfortable old school beds, attentive hosts.
Wells is a sleepy, scenic town in the southern Adirondacks. Very quiet here - there are days you might be the only one on the lake, even mid summer. No tourists, just summer camps and one motel in town.
Spring through fall there are free tennis and basketball courts, a children's park, local beach and an ice cream shop.
LOTS of healthy outdoor year round activities here!
Spring and Summer for swimming, kayaking, hiking, lots of remote waterfalls to explore and lakes to visit.
Fall is stunningly beautiful foliage, especially from this house! Unobstructed views of the lake and mountains beyond.
