Harwinton House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, sleeps 5

Bring your bathing suits and a smile! Relax and enjoy the pretty scenery and lake breezes on this charming lake house. Included are two kayaks, one canoe and two pedal boats for your use and pleasure. You can go swimming directly from the backyard into the lake. Plan on having company? Take a one-minute walk to one of three community shared beaches.

Cottage sits on a double lot and has 80 feet of shoreline with a spacious yard for barbecuing, sun bathing, swimming, or napping in the hammock. The kitchen is recently updated. The cottage is bright and airy in the spring and summer, cozy and warm in the fall and winter, and always romantic. Sit and relax to the sounds of the water lapping on the lake or go for a swim or fish from the trout-filled lake. Bike and hike around the lake. Lots of fun restaurants, antiquing, wine trails, golf, river tubing, and gambling at Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods is an hour away. Lovely, knotty pine interior with views of the lake from most rooms. Lakehouse is equipped with air conditioning, flat screen TV, DVD, life jackets, barbecue grill, lounge chairs, hammock, gliding swing and parking for four cars.

$1275 weekly includes the cleaning fee. $500 refundable security deposit.

About Jolene Durelli

My name is Jolene and I grew up in New York City and dreamed about a lakehouse as a little girl. I wanted a place that would be fun and relaxing in the daytime, yet quiet and serene in the evening. This lakehouse is my dream. My family and I have spent many happy hours swimming and boating here.

Jolene Durelli purchased this house in 2006

Why Jolene Durelli chose Harwinton

My son caught his first fish here! And my daughters loved chasing minnows along the beach. We have celebrated many festive family occasions including birthdays, graduations, reunions and wedding anniversaries. Everyone enjoys the property. Because we are located at the west side of the lake, we have spectacular lake views without our homes blocking or distracting the view.

What makes this house unique

The house sits on a raised double lot affording a panoramic view of the lake with plenty of room for lawn parties. Wonderful older trees provide shade in selected areas.

Lovely spot on the lake

  • 4 of 5
This was elegant camping in a very nice lakefront house. We spent all of our vacation here outdoors, enjoying the yard and hammock and lake and the boats that the owners had there for our use. We missed only internet connections, but got to read several books instead. A month later, we are still enjoying memories of the gorgeous views of the lake and the sounds of the ducks from the bedroom windows when we awoke each morning. The owners are helpful and friendly and great about giving any information you might need about the area. We loved it here.

This was a delightful getaway vacation. We loved being on direct waterfront. The house is charming and the scenery is so pretty. My favorite was laying on the hammock next to the lake.

Thank you for a wonderful vacation!!

Harwinton CT is a quiet rural community that is minutes from antique shopping in nearby Litchfield. The Farmington river is another fun getaway stop for tubing down the lazy river. If you enjoy gambling, take an hour drive to Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods will provide you with added entertainment and dining. If you're looking for a get away home, to relax and recharge your energies, walk out your backdoor to the lake and dive right in, or read a book in the hammock and relax. This is a quiet and relaxing place to linger.
