  • Antiquing

Located in the town of Wells directly across the street from Lake Algonquin, this farmhouse is a peaceful and serene getaway in the southern Adirondacks. It is very quiet in this area—there are days that guests might be the only one on the lake, even in mid-summer. With hardly any tourists, glampers will find these surroundings very calming and able to provide the peaceful escape that they are looking for. This rental has unobstructed views of color filled mountains, doubled by the reflection of these mountains on the lake, really is a sight to see!
