Great place to stay. Both inside and outside. Loved the fireplace, the open concept kitchen and the view! If you are looking for a place to relax, this is it.

“Could be cleaner”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

The location was outstanding with a fantastic view over the lake with the mountains in the background. The house itself is old, so it had that cosy feel to it. We were a little taken aback by the many rules concerning our conduct in ensuring we did not introduce any dirt into the building. It's a pity the owners did not pay the same attention to the fridge freezer...the bottom was filthy, we left the dead fly in the fridge in case we were accused of taking and not replacing it. (As per the rules on use and replace). The gas fire didn't work and we laughed at the fact there was an additional charge for leaving the BBQ dirtier than found, it is now much cleaner than found! The grass was partially cut and a weed whacker might be an interesting addition for the gardener. I noted the owner had just recently renovated a new rental property. I can only assume resources were taken from this property to renovate the new acquisition. Not somewhere I would return to or recommend to friends and family.

“Small town in Adirondaks”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We enjoyed the farm house very much, just what the doctor ordered. Very relaxing and laid back. It was nice to enjoy having the lake view both inside and out. We used both the couch and Adirondack chairs in the yard to take full advantage of the pleasant view. Having both the gas grill outside and the full kitchen was very convenient for cooking "in".

“Perfect relaxing getaway for busy couples”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I surprised my girlfriend with a weekend trip for her birthday and she was completely thrilled when we got there. Everything was perfect and we enjoyed the exact relaxing weekend we were looking for. The house is so nicely decorated and put together, and my interior designer girlfriend thought the very same. We made very good use of the enormous kitchen which was fully equipped and very convenient to use for the variety of meals we prepared. Cooking with a view of the lake is surely a joy too. The yard is plenty big for lounging, exercising, grilling and dining, the lake is just feet away, and the little town of Wells was very cozy and peaceful. The best part was really just being inside the house - plenty of space and extremely comfortable. Slept like a baby!

“The Farmhouse was perfect, as alway”
Reviewed 17 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This is our second time staying at the farmhouse (we'd gone once before, in October) and couldn't have been happier with our second stay. The farmhouse has a very different character in the snow (so cozy!) and we enjoyed reading in front of the fire, going on walks in the snow, and generally relaxing. As before, the Farmhouse comes equipped with every amenity: the kitchen has everything you need. The house is just beautifully decorated -- filled with books, antiques, and gorgeous hardwood floors -- and we'll definitely be back again. Can't recommend it highly enough.
