Description

1800's renovated Farmhouse with stunning views overlooking Lake Algonquin and Dunham Mountain.

Wells is a great area to find some peace and quiet, and this is the perfect home for those who are particular. Very clean and well maintained with lots of extras (3 bathrooms, binoculars, bikes, snowshoes, kayaks, tablecloths, that kind of thing). Rugged Adirondack enjoyment found outside, modern comforts found inside. Favorite activities include the easy 3.5 mile walk or bike around the lake, kayaking on peaceful and picturesque Lake Algonguin, skiing, snowshoeing and hiking to local waterfalls and peaks with great views. Frequent walks to the local ice cream shop are on the top of the list too.

The kitchen is part of an open floor plan, and is our favorite room! Beautiful lake views, fireplace and dining table, so the cook can converse with everyone. Double farmhouse sink, 5 burner gas stove, dishwasher, expansive wood counter space with breakfast bar. Very nice pots, pans, dishes, glassware, spices and other amenities provided. There is a seperate living area with sofa and 40" flat screen for watching Netflix movies. We have no cable TV here, we come here to get away from the news!

Upstairs master bedroom has cathedral ceilings, queen bed, private bath with soaking tub and great lake views. Two guest bedrooms have one double bed each and use of 1/2 bath in upstairs hallway, another full bath is downstairs.

We go out of our way to supply amenities that will make our guests stay a little easier, such as very nice towels and linens, binoculars, table cloths, iron and board, kayaks, paddle board, snowshoes, bikes, paper towels, tin foil, plastic wrap, napkins, sugar, spices, condiments - lots of little things you would find at home but may not think of bringing while traveling. We also share detailed directions on how to get to some amazing local spots, fun waterfalls and places that you might not find otherwise - some took us years to find!

The yard out front is where we spend our time, soaking in the sun and the view and BBQ'ing up dinner. There is a local road between our house and the lake, but we are above it and it is somewhat obscured. We have Adirondack chairs for lounging and enjoying the view, a fire pit and large Weber gas grill.

SPRING, SUMMER and FALL
During the warmer seasons our favorite activities include a daily walk around the lake, hikes to nearby waterfalls, swimming, paddle boarding and kayaking out front (you drag the kayaks across the road, launch them there). Public fishing is dock out front. Swimming is easy access, but It is a bit rocky, bring water shoes, or public sand beach is one mile away. 2 bikes, 2 kayaks, one stand up paddle board provided. Free tennis courts within walking distance.

FALL FOLIAGE is AMAZING from the farmhouse! We have unobstructed views of the color filled mountains, doubled by the reflection of these mountains on the lake, really is a sight to see!

WINTER
Winter is magical here! Cozy and warm inside, great sporting opportunities right out your front door. Snowshoe or cross country ski across the lake or on one of the many trails through the snow covered woods. Lapland Lake is a world class cross country resort with reindeer and authentic Finnish food. Downhill ski at family friendly Oak Mt. just a 15 minute drive (ask about the $50 discount they offer to our guests!), or much larger Gore which is 35 minutes away. Ice fishing, snowmobiling, and of course winter hiking to our local waterfalls are other favorite activities.

4 sets of snowshoes provided.

Speculator (next town over) rents snowmobiles, you can sled from here to Canada on wide expanse of groomed trails - this is amazing snowmobile country. Guided tours available for those trying it for the first time. Give it a shot - experiencing the Adirondack woods in winter, gliding over lakes, stopping in at different Pubs for a pint and a stew can be great fun. Highly recommended.

MORE ABOUT THE FARMHOUSE
This is one of the oldest homes in town - was a working farm for 100+ years. Fully renovated 2010. Sits on elevated 3/4 acre overlooking Lake Algonquin. Truly gorgeous view.

Porch - there is a large porch on the backside of house. Can read out there or store your skiis and toys. There is a sitting area to remove and store shoes so if you would like to be shoe free in house, as we are, it is convenient.

Disclosure: there is a security camera on the driveway, mostly used to monitor snowfall for snowplowing needs.

What's to LOVE about this house and area? Everything mentioned above.

What might you NOT love? Taking home your RECYCLES - because the town does not pick them up. So - the rule here is similar to camping - if you bring it in, you must agree to take it out! Leaving a small amount of recycles (less than one bag full) is fine, but they must be cleaned, dry, seperated (see? a hassle, I know) and will be taken to the transfer station and seperated by hand by our fabulous housekeeper.

No smoking, no pets (no exceptions, sorry!) and no candles please, this is an allergy sensitive home.

Watercraft is available for use May-Oct.
