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 Wells

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.

Restful Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this very clean and comfortable cottage. It has everything you need to enjoy your stay. The kitchen was clean and well stocked with any pots, pans and dishware that you may need. There was even a dishwasher! The couches and beds were super comfortable, I enjoyed using the clean , fresh sheets and towels that were provided. It was so nice not to have to pack and bring my own. There was more than enough room for you to enjoy your own quiet space. The views from the cottage of the Lake were beautiful. This is the first time in years that I read an entire book without distraction. The cottage even had books and games to enjoy, plenty of movies too! The wifi worked great. Our dog got to enjoy the fresh air in a safe, fenced in dog yard which was so wonderful to have! There is even a small "camp like" store at the end of the street.

Debby was super friendly and welcoming!

We are definitely looking forward to returning to this great retreat soon!

Thanks again!

Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband, three children and our dog got to spend a relaxing weekend at this home. The owners Debby and Mark messaged us upon arrival to check all was well and even made a quick visit over when we could not get the fire place to work. The home is welcoming, clean and fully stocked. The view is pretty and we only wish we could had more time here. We can not wait to visit again during the warmer months.

Comfortable Adirondack Home

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this house. It had a great view, cozy and comfortable furniture, and a kitchen with ample supplies for cooking. Debby was very responsive. The house was very close to lots of outdoor activity (we snowshoed and went cross country skiing). There were maps and brochures in the house outlining great places to go that were very helpful.

Great house and great area

  • 5 of 5

We visited during the winter and absolutely loved the house. We hiked in deep snow at the Sacandaga trail, the kids went sledding, and we enjoyed the beautiful view of the lake behind the lake house. As a special treat we saw the deer that come down the opposite side of the lake and we watched them cross the lake one evening. I would definitely come back any time of year. The owners are amazing! They checked in with us the night of our arrival and after we left. I highly recommend this lake house!

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, plus our dog, spent a long weekend at this vacation home in Wells, NY. The camp is the cleanest and most well-appointed place we have stayed in over 15 years of renting vacation homes. Debby was very gracious and remained in touch throughout the weekend. The view out over Lake Algonquin was magnificent and we enjoyed sitting on the back patio or down by the dock at daybreak and dusk. We hope to return in the future for a longer stay.

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!
