Located in the southern Adirondacks, this charming and luxurious lakeside farmhouse is the perfect rental for an Upstate New York getaway. This house can sleep up to six guests. The farmhouse comes with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The master bedroom has cathedral ceilings, a queen bed, and a private bathroom, all with great lake views. The guest bedrooms each come with one double bed and a shared bathroom. There is another full bathroom downstairs. Lakeside cottage rentals rarely come any better than this one and guests quick enough to secure a booking here will be relieved they did so before anyone else.

Adirondack cabin plans are generally excellent and this rental comes with a lovely open floor plan designed so that everyone can enjoy the view while cooking, relaxing by the fire, or hanging out at the breakfast bar. Downstairs, guests will have a TV room equipped with a 40" flat screen on which Netflix is available—cable is not provided. One of the benefits of lakeside cottage rentals is often the views and this lakeside farmhouse is no different: the kitchen has beautiful lake views, a fireplace, and a dining table. Furthermore, it comes equipped with a double farmhouse sink, a five-burner gas stove, a dishwasher, and an expansive wood counter space. Guests here will also have quality pots and pans, dishware, glassware, spices and plenty of other amenities. Secluded lakefront cabin rentals should be able to provide you with everything you need (as well as the inspiring views) and vacation home rentals such as this one in the southern Adirondacks do just that.

The front yard is where guests will spend most of their time relaxing on the large elevated grass lawn, with views of the lake and striking mountains nearby. Four Adirondack chairs are provided for lounging and enjoying the view. Meals may be cooked inside or outside on a large Weber grill and can be shared inside or at the lakeside picnic table. Evenings can be spent stargazing around the fire pit. Private lakefront cabin rentals like this are the perfect destination to cut loose from the monotony and stress of everyday life, and breath-taking views will inspire guests the moment they step outside from their lakeside farmhouse.

The area here is also known for its many lakes and fantastic waterfalls. The owners will happily share directions with guests to the many special hiking and remote waterfall spots nearby. With its proximity to so many special places in the area, this property is regarded as one of the best lakeside cottage rentals in the region and a dream for guests who choose to stay here.

Location + Surroundings

  • 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!

The property is around an hour-and-a-half from Albany and a four-hour drive from New York City.

Kayaking, swimming, fishing, and barbequing are favorite warm-weather activities. Ice fishing, snowmobiling, skiing and of course winter hiking to our local waterfalls are winter favorite activities. The next town offers snowmobile rentals, in which glampers can sled to Canada on a wide expanse of groomed trails. Guided tours are available for those trying it for the first time.

Spring through fall, guests can enjoy everything from walks around the lake to hikes alongside spectacular waterfalls. There are swimming and kayaking out front on the lake. There is a public fishing dock out front. Two kayaks, a stand-up paddleboard, and two bikes are provided.
