Happy New Year!!

  • 5 of 5
I had such a wonderful time ringing in the New Year this year with my family and friends at this cottage. The owner made sure that the heat was on before we arrived so it was already warm for us! There was also plenty of firewood to keep us cozy all night. There were 8 adults and two dogs with plenty room to spare. We even lit off Japanese Lanterns out on the lake dock in celebration. We had such a nice time! It was very clean and we all look forward to spending a night here again! I would highly recommend this place to people of all ages! It is a nice getaway spot that I will never forget.

This cottage was just perfect for our family and Chris and Gina are wonderful! We live on Long Island and chose to visit our cousins in CT before the summer ended.This was the ideal place, I say it's Bethlehem's little secret. The cottage was clean, safe and comfortable; more than enough room for myself, my 12 year old twins, cousin her 5 mo old twins which needed the room for the pack and play, bouncers. Our CT family visited us and we all enjoyed the clean lake, swimming, catching fish, frogs, the 4 boats, bbq and hammock.The lake views and sunset from inside the house and dock are beautiful. The memories made at the lake front cottage are priceless. Next time we hope to bring our dog as we plan to make this yearly family reunion. We are also planning to do a girls weekend in the spring. Plenty to do nearby as well, waterfalls, shopping, apple/peach picking, hiking, horseback riding, etc. Also the neighbors were very nice. Again, thank you Chris and Gina for making it possible!!

Beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and three dogs have returned for a second summer from Canada and couldn't get enough! Chris and Gina were wonderful and kept in close contact to make sure that we were comfortable and looked after. We (humans and dogs!) went swimming everyday in the beautiful waterfront and never ran out of things to do: biking, boating, kayaking, paddle-boating! Our dogs are sad to have returned home after such a wonderful holiday in such a beautiful setting. I would definitely recommend this cottage if you are interested - it does not disappoint! We'd love to return! Thank you Chris and Gina!

Great Cottage Super Location

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 6 had a super time at this cottage. The area is lovely and our kids of 10/12 years loved the lake, and particularly the playground beach area directly across from the cottage. The owners have all the toys you will need to enjoy the late on site, kayak, fishing boat, canoe, etc
Cottage itself was clean and comfortable.
We would definitely return.

Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 6 adults and 2 dogs thoroughly enjoyed our time at this cottage. The dogs loved playing in the back yard (as did their humans). It was a very quiet, relaxing environment and had everything we needed, including 4 boats! The weather was gorgeous so we spent most of our time outside, either on the dock/lake or around the firepit. We also enjoyed the garlic and harvest festival that happened to be going on, as well as apple-picking at March farms down the road. The cottage was clean and well-maintained, a great value overall. Cell phone reception was spotty but we didn't mind. The owners are very accommodating and communicated well. We would definitely recommend to a friend and/or stay here again.

Great Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5
What a great getaway!

Gina and Chris were more than accommodating as we visited right after Hurricane Irene; they kept in close contact with us to make sure the cottage was perfect and ready for our arrival and we had what we needed while we were there.

We have stayed in many rental homes and this cottage was one of the most well equipped, cozy homes we have stayed at. Peaceful, quiet nights overlooking the lake, making smores over the firepit, relaxing in the hammock - not to mention all the different ways to enjoy the water and fish! Even our dog had the time of her life in the fenced in yard and swimming and sunning on the dock!

It was a wonderful break after the craziness of the hurricane and a great place to celebrate our anniversary. We are already checking our calendar for dates we can return!

Thanks Gina & Chris for sharing your home with us!

Car: necessary

Nestled in the northwest hills of Connecticut, Bethlehem is more affectionately known as the 'Christmas town' for its name and winter festivities. Located in Litchfield County, which still offers picturesque farmlands and 'Norman Rockwell' main streets. Long Meadow Lake is a very tranquil, peaceful lake perfect for relaxing on the private beach areas, going for a swim, or cruising the lake in canoes, kayaks, paddleboats, or row boats (no gas motors only electric trolling motors allowed). Come enjoy the New England seasons.
