Larom-Welles Cottage is a historic cure cottage located at Saranac Lake in the town of North Elba, Essex and Franklin County, New York. It was built about 1905 and is a three story wood frame structure in the Shingle Style on a stone foundation and surmounted by a metal jerkin head gable roof. It has a two story wing with a shed roof dormer. It has a two bay verandah and entrance porch with a second story sleeping porch. Also on the second floor is a cure porch. It was originally built for the priest of St. Lukes Episcopal Church, later the home of Dr. Edward Welles, a pioneer in thoracic surgery, who practiced at the Adirondack Cottage Sanitarium. The house has been converted to six units.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.[1]
