Wonderful cottage right on the largest of the three bays on Highland Lake. The cottage was neat and clean, had everything we needed, and the kitchen was well equipped. Beds were very comfortable, Owner stopped by early in our stay to let us know he was prepared to respond to anything we needed. It has a great dock for boating. The owner provides a canoe, and we brought two kayaks. We came for a week of fishing and relaxing, and in addition to fishing Highland Lake (great bass lake!), the location is just 10 minutes from the Farmington River (fabulous trout stream). Plenty of good restaurants right in town (Winsted is only 5 minutes away), and a great Italian restaurant (Marino's), a pizza shop, and a spirit store are within a mile from the cottage. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy water sports and relaxing in a recreational lake area.
