About the property

One bedroom with loft with two twin beds and one futon chair. Sleeps 4.

Enjoy all of the beauty and excitement that the Adirondacks in winter have to offer while staying in your own cozy log sided cabin. Grill outside on your charcoal BBQ, make s’mores in the stone fire pit, take a refreshing three mile walk through the quaint Hamlet of Wells and around Lake Algonquin or just curl up with a good book in your warm and comfy cabin.

Newly constructed with all new appliances and furnishings. One bathroom with tub and shower and washer/dryer. Fully furnished modern kitchen with stainless electric stove, microwave and refrigerator. Living room with 32” flat screen TV with built in DVD player, Dish Network, WiFi and furnished with unique Adirondack style furniture.

Located in the heart of the southern Adirondacks, Ruby Hill is 15 minutes from Oak Mountain Ski Area , 30 minutes from Gore Mountain and 20 minutes from Lapland Lake Cross Country Ski Area. There are also numerous trails nearby for snowshoeing, hiking and cross country skiing.

If snowmobiling is your thing, you can unload your sled at your cabin, ride our private trail a quarter mile and connect with the hundreds of miles of the New York State Trail System. You never have to load it back on the trailer until your stay is over.

We provide an ideal cabin for those who want to experience an Adirondack getaway in the woods with the convenience of nearby winter activities. An experience that will keep you coming back year after year.

Our second stay here. This will continue to be a favorite getaway spot. The place is clean, quiet and cozy. Gerry and Susan are great as they helped celebrate our wedding anniversary by displaying arrangements I had delivered to the site. Thanks again!

We can't wait to come againl

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we found Ruby Hill on-line we fell in love. And the cabin was just as beautiful on line as it was in person. The cabin has everything you could need. From sheets and towels to wine opener to ice cream scooper. Our whole family cannot wait to come back and we are already discussing a little winter getaway. The weather was colder then we hoped but it was still perfect. Nice and relaxing which is perfect after a crazy busy summer and cheer season. It was nice to relax and have family time. Our 10 year old daughter says she wants to live there. We had a beautiful hike at Auger falls in the snow but it was still beautiful. And I loved my relaxing walks through your quaint little village. The only thing I would recommend is to bring hand towels for the kitchen and bathroom. But there's bath towels wash cloths and paper towels for you.

We loved our breakfast at the Hope diner it was a nice small town diner with birds chickens and turkeys to watch out the window. We also had a lovely dinner at The Alpine. With more food than 1 person can eat. So plan on left overs.

It was the perfect home away from home and the cleanest place we have ever stayed. Thanks again Gerry and Susan we hope to see you again soon.

It's nice to stay at a place where the owners, Gerry and Susan, take pride in the property. Will be staying at Ruby Hill Cabins again.

Ruby Hills Cabins are quiet and well maintained. Everything we needed was provided!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing weekend knowing that no matter where we travelled during the day, we had a place to call home. We had the pleasure of watching the turkeys and their poults as they wandered through the property. I would suggest that the master bed have some further support in the middle as it was slightly uncomfortable due to the sloping of the mattress. The cabin was clean and well furnished, the firepit was secluded and enjoyed in the evenings. We look forward to a future stay with you!!

A wonderful trip!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was wonderfully isolated. Near the beach and kayak dock and that's about all we wanted. Gerry and Susan were attentive to our needs and maintain two beautiful cabins in Wells.

Peaceful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very clean and woodsy yet modern. Great family gathering by the fire pit at night. Bring the bikes because the town is easy bike riding. The best part for us is that Gerry and Susan let us use the kayaks and canoe which was great ! They are very nice and only a phone call away if you need something. We highly recommend renting here if you like a peaceful retreat that even kids enjoy. Our kids are 17,13 and 9. Lake George is not far and whitewater rafting not far. There's a diner and ice cream in Speculator only 15 minutes away. There's hiking very close by and a lake beach a minute walk away. 😊򒠠Oh, and the fishing is great!
