Relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had an amazing time at this house! The lake was amazing and very peaceful. The lake was small so there wasnt a lot of boats on the lake, which is exactly what we wanted. We used the kayaks almost every day to cruise around the lake. The boys loved the dock and spent endless hours jumping off of it and looking at the fish. The deck was a great place to sit after a long day swimming.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5
We rented this for a family getaway even though most of us are in CT (one person in Idaho) The views were great, boats worked well, and the house was very well stocked with cooking supplies! I would recommend it..I do dread spiders and we had to do some massive spider/web removal on entry walkway and the porch when we got there ..one spider was as big as a fist -no joke! Aside from that it was a great weekend...and obviously spiders in the property and house were not something that is avoidable given the location...

Thanks again Dale and Gail

Owner's Response: We greatly appreciate the 5 star review. We try to keep a boundary between nature and our outdoor space, but spiders do wander into the yard space on occasion. It comes with being close to the lake and woods.

Wonderful Lake House "Away from It All"

Wonderful Lake House "Away from It All"
  • 4 of 5
We flew into CT for a 5 day Holiday stay to visit family, and were so pleased with this house. The setting is beautiful! Everything we needed was provided, including linens, etc.; and the house was extremely clean when we arrived. The layout of the house worked very well, even for a rainy afternoon with the whole extended family here for a meal. The owner was very quick to respond when we had a need with the house. Our concerns were very few -- if you like to cook a lot the stove does need to be adapted for propane use. Until that is done, the burners will always be high. Also, some of the mattresses are very firm, which was an adjustment for us. We might suggest a couple mattress toppers, esp. for the twin beds. But, overall, we couldn't have been happier. Here's hoping we can visit during the summer, take advantage of the deck & kayaks, do some swimming, and drop our lines into the lake! Thanks for a great stay!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We had a service tech look at the stove. It was already set up for propane, but he adjusted the stove burner’s low settings. So now if your recipe requires very low heat the stove top will be able to adjust to that. thanks again and we look forward to your next visit.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was really nice. The views were great, the lake was nice and clean. It was also a peaceful and quiet place to stay. If you are looking for a back to nature type getaway in a very clean, well appointed cottage with a great open layout, I would definitely recommend this cottage. The owner was available to answer any questions about the property in a timely manner, and overall our experience was great.

Summer Vacation with family

  • 5 of 5
This is our second time renting this lovely home from Dale & Gail .
Last year we came for Thanksgiving for 2 weeks & even experienced snow. It was very peaceful & relaxing time for us.
This year we returned for the summer and enjoyed it just as much. We came with the whole family & for once everyone was outside enjoying the lake. The weather was beautiful & even on the hot days we never felt the heat.
Love this home and would recommend it highly. Hope to return next summer.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5
We actually stayed here in July, 2010 but never wrote a review - just thinking of that wonderful week made me want to check on this jewel.

We came from FL - my daughter, her husband, her three children and myself. It was a perfect location for my mother and my brother and his wife and daughters to make day visits from nearby Thomaston.

We found the "cottage" to be a lovely home with room for everyone and a kitchen and deck that easily accommodated some wonderful family meals.

This was a first trip to CT or any where in New England for most of my daughter's family and they truly loved the canoeing, kayaks, fishing, swimming in the surprising warm pond and having some great evening bonfires down by the water.

We had many really great day trips to go berry picking, check out some of NW CT beautiful sites including the Cornwall Covered Bridge, Kent Falls (great picnic that afternoon), hiking to the rock at Black Rock, riding the train in Thomaston but the best days were spent right there on the pond watching the kids have an experience of a life time.

We did have to watch water usage carefully and not being able to dry towels and clothing (there was quite a bit of rain during our visit) was a bit of a challenge - glad we were able to make trips to my mothers to use the washer and dryer...otherwise just perfect.

We are hoping to head back that way again someday.
