Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms plus loft bed, bath and a half, sleeps 5 adults, Wi-Fi, Cable

Welcome to Whispering Pines Wells with its own private association beach that is just a three minute walk away.

This is a four season getaway retreat that was outfitted and furnished with the vacationer in mind. The first floor has a fully equipped modern kitchen and dining area, a living room with flat screen tv and a freestanding gas fireplace, a bedroom with a new Queen size bed and a bathroom with a tub and a shower, as well as a washer and dryer.

The upper level has a loft area with a twin bed and a desk, and a master bedroom that features a queen size bed. There is also a half bath.

A large front deck and a screen porch adds outdoor living space in the warmer months & has a porch glider, adirondack chairs and a patio table.

There is a fire pit for your evening enjoyment. A gas grill is also available for you to use.

And guests will be able to enjoy central air conditioning, for those sultry nights that we now experience in the Southern Adirondacks.

Why drive for hours when a great vacation is so close? Whispering Pines Wells is a short drive from most anywhere.

In the winter months, it is only 20 minutes to Lapland Lakes cross-country skiing and 40 minutes to Gore Mountain. In the summer and fall, there are many hikes in the area to waterfalls, mountain tops and the Northville-Lake Placid Trail. A great bike ride is the 3.5 mile loop around the lake and through the town. In the spring, you can go fishing in the lake or one of many nearby rivers.

Inside Whispering Pines you will find wifi, cable, a blu-ray player with Netflix, Prime Movies and Pandora, books, games and puzzles and an iPod speaker. There is a fully outfitted kitchen with a k-cup coffee maker, crock pot and a blender. Outside there is a large flat yard, hammock and chairs, two kayaks, a 15' canoe and a Sunfish sailboat, with all the accessories. There are carts for transporting the watercraft the short two minute trip to the launching area.

We enjoy the Southern Adirondacks and have been vacationing in this area since we were children. For a long time, it has been a dream of ours to own a home on a lake and in the mountains. Our hope is to share our good fortune with families like you, who want to enjoy the fun and excitement of Lake Algonquin and all the magic that this region offers, but then want to retreat to the whispering pines, to reflect on the day, and dream about tomorrow.

Let us be your hosts for your next vacation.

Great property, well equipped and great location combined with friendly owners.

  • 5 of 5

While between seasons (Early April) we were able to downhill ski at Gore and hike the trails. Hikes with falls were spectacular.

Perfect Get-away!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, warm, clean cabin. We felt as though were at home. It had ALL the comforts you would need!The owners notified us of the extreme cold weather and even checked in on us by e-mail.(Which I did not see until much later!)We will definitely do our best to visit again.

Wonderful place for families and lake access

  • 5 of 5

The home was in a really cozy cabin neighborhood and a quick walk to a dock to launch the canoe and kayaks they have in the shed. We loved the amount of space and coziness and the super woodsy decor. Overall, feels like the type of place that would be great to bring kids because it has that level of comfort and cheeky style.

We loved having access to nearby hiking trails and being able to step out and see the stars. For those looking for more isolation and a more modern cabin/NYC feel, this may not be the cabin for you. But it was a perfect place to hang out- on the front deck, or their screened deck, or by the fire pit- and I'd recommend it to anyone needing that forest escape.
