Woodsburner is a modern take on Thoreau’s grand experiment in “small” living. A quaint cabin nestled in the south eastern Adirondacks offering visitors a chance to escape to a natural setting while retaining all the modern amenities of 21st century living.
Famous American author and transcendentalist, Henry David Thoreau made a regrettable mistake in April, 1844. A year before he settled into the “simple life” at Walden Pond, he struck a match to start a cooking fire in the woods around Concord, Massachusetts. The incident accidentally ignited a forest fire that consumed 300 acres. The events of that day appear to have altered the course of Thoreau’s life and American history.
“A man is rich in proportion to the number of things which he can afford to let alone.” Henry David Thoreau - Walden

My husband and 2 small children enjoyed our recent stay. The home was perfect and the kids LOVED sleeping up in the loft. Everything was very neat and clean. The property itself was very nice and private and allowed for room to spend time inside or outside. I'd highly recommend.
We hit the central ADK's every year, usually SEP/OCT. This year was early for us (AUG) and finding a spot to bunk down is hard. So many places filled up and/or won't rent for less than a full week. Not here. We stumbled into this and it's very nice. Spotless. Feels very camp-like yet is quite modern. All the creature comforts but surrounded by the ADK's on all sides. Wells and Lake Algonquin are very pretty. Old-fashioned public beach and general store in town. Getting on the water takes a little effort but can be done. 15 minutes to restaurants in Speculator. Very nice folks to deal with, too. Although neighbors are close by, they were quiet. We hope to hit this place in the fall sometime. Give the Woodsburner a good look. We'll be back.
Some friends and I stayed this past weekend and it was great! Very comfortable and relaxing. The property was well maintained, very clean and modern looking. The cabin's inside wooden paneling looks amazing.
The location of the cabin is right on the outskirts of Wells and about 15 miles away from the town of Speculator which made it very easy to find places to shop and eat. It is also very close to several mountain trails including Snowy Mountain.
I recommend this cabin to anyone who loves the woods, but also likes being close to amenities.
