About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

.

Newly constructed log sided cabin with all new appliances and furnishings. Private dock on Lake Algonquin and a three minute walk to the Town Beach (we'll even supply a wagon to transport those beach chairs, cooler and beach toys). One mile from the boat launch.

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.

A full size screened in porch is perfect for reading, relaxing (or maybe napping) in the afternoon or a peaceful dinner in the evening. The kids will probably want to sleep out there so don't forget the air mattress and sleeping bags.

Take a short walk to Torts Ice Cream Shop or the Community Hall for tennis, basketball or the playground. Enjoy dinner at the Alpine Restaurant and don't miss the experience (and great food) of stepping back forty years into an authentic, friendly Adirondack family owned diner at the Hope Diner just five miles south of town.

We are located about a 1 hour scenic drive to Lake George and The Great Escape Theme Park and the Adirondack Museum at Blue Mountain Lake so you can take a day trip and still return to the peace and quiet of your cabin in the woods.

We provide an ideal cabin for the family that wants to experience an Adirondack vacation in the woods with the convenience of nearby lake access, hiking, boating or just exploring. An experience that will keep you coming back year after year.

Perfect New Years weekend

  • 5 of 5

Gerry was the best host - very prompt responding with any and every question I had. He let us stay past the check out time to get the most out of our trip. He had great restaurant recommendations and helped us get to know the area before we arrived. The cabin was beautiful and pristine- very cozy and was the perfect place to stay for the New Year and close enough for us to enjoy Gore Mountain! We are definitely planning on coming back in the summer time.

Cozy, Comfortable and Pretty Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cabin just for a little break from civilization and this was just the place. The cabins are comfortable and quaint with the amenities needed. The location is peaceful and private. The bed was even comfortable! Thank you for letting us stay.

Beautiful Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cabin. It is nicely situated in the woods yet not far from Rt. 30 & many hiking opportunities in the area. It was clean, comfortable & had a great shower. We liked the lovely Adirondack decor. The only reason I did not rate it with 5 stars is that there is no table inside that 4 people can sit at for a meal. There is a card table on the screened in porch but, since we were there in September, it was a little too cool to be out there to eat. Tray tables are provided but that's not the same as sitting down together (there were 4 of us). I think if we had been there in warmer weather, this would not have been an issue.

Rustic luxury

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful weekend with the family. The cabin is just so cute, yet so accommodating. You can tell that everything is done well for comfort and convenience and that Susan and Gerry put serious investment into "the little things" that can make or break a vacation. We arrived during a power outage to the whole area, but you wouldn't know it because they have an emergency 11 KV propane powered generator on side, which was humming away until the power grid came back online later that evening. Gerry talked us through how to use the television, late in the evening and the wifi kept the kids happy before bed. Everything is clean, modern and convenient. My daughter wanted to MOVE there (She's 10, but was having a total Hansel and Gretel moment). Of note, the units are not directly on the lake, but that's fine, quick walk down the driveway and you're there. Bring food, in fact, bring everything. Wells has a general store...very general, but that's life as one would expect in the Adirondacks. I definitely recommend hiking up to Auger Falls (Easy hike, but bring boots) as well as other outdoor adventures (We headed to Howe Caverns on the way back to NYC - about 2 hours away). Otherwise, bring some firewood. As John Lennon once said "Time you enjoyed wasting was not wasted".

A wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I shared a wonderful weekend at the cabin. Everything was clean, neat, organized, and exactly as described by the owners. We packed all of our groceries for the weekend, which was a great idea as there are very limited options in Wells and Speculator. We hiked on Saturday in Hope, NY, and Gerry was extremely helpful with providing information on other hikes in the area. Overall it was extremely relaxing - we saw plenty of wildlife, soaked up the quiet and just overall enjoyed being out in nature. We would definitely come back for a longer stay.

the cabin was perfect, would have liked being closer to the water, but we had a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

please explain that the cabin is not actually on the water but up the driveway and across the street from the lake. the picture of the kayaks at the dock makes you believe it is right there, down from the cabin. wasn't an access problem for us, but anyone not able to walk up a steep driveway wouldn't be able to get down and back from the lake. if you're not interested in going on the lake then definitely go to ruby hill!
