About Mark and Debby Hodgkins

We live in Charlton, NY but we have our lake house on the other end Lake Algonquin also!

Mark is an avid water skiier! There is a AWSA demensioned slalom course at the south end of the lake!

Mark and Debby Hodgkins purchased this house in 2014

Why Mark and Debby Hodgkins chose New York

We have enjoyed this lake for over 20yrs and decided to invest in this wonderful property when it became available because of the quality of the building and setting.

What makes this house unique

We love lake Algonquin because of the mountain views and the experience of the quaint town. It is not commercialized like other lakes in the Adirondacks. The lake is calm and easy to kayak and canoe on. There are beautiful eagles flying over head and tiny humming birds at the feeders. It is close enough to attractions for day trips but we can also come back to the peace and tranquility we love! The building is well done with wood floors and great windows, the bathrooms and kitchen are clean and up to date. We even have central air and a backup generator so you are always comfortable and at ease.

Relaxing home on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many Lake houses and this was the best one yet! Bright and clean! Decorated tastefully with all of the amenities that you might need on vacation. Loved sitting on the deck and having dinners with our family. Kayaking was great because you could explore the larger part of the lake or down the nice quiet side among nature. Hope to return again!

An enjoyable and restful week

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time in this lovely vacation home. We hiked, kayaked, canoed, fished, ate out and had lots of fun! We also visited the Adk museum. Every morning we sat in the screened porch with a cup of coffee and enjoyed the peaceful lake view. I enjoyed watching the hummingbirds at the feeder. When it ran out of nectar I wasn't surprised to see that Debby had left instructions on how to make more of it. Our hosts made sure that all our needs were met! We were also delighted that our two mini schnauzers could join us and not have to be boarded.

The lake is small, quiet and beautiful. The cottage is great, with a screened in porch, firepit, kayaks and a canoe. Excellent hiking nearby.

Located on a lovely lake in the ADK mountains in the friendly small town of Wells with plenty of swimming,kayaking,canoeing and fishing. Minutes from hiking trails with views of magnificant waterfalls, or a leisurly 3 mile walk around the lake. In the fall the local ski hill has floiage rides or in winter great downhill skking! Gore Mnt is 40 min. away for an even larger ski resort. We are also located adjacent to the NYS snowmobile trail system. Just 45 minutes from lake George or 1hr15min away from the Blue Mtn Lake Museum. Staying in is a great option too! Sit and relax on the screened porch or sit on the dock and watch the ADK loons!
