Guestbook comments from the owner
Very peaceful. Romantic factor 10 out of 10! Great house, well equipped, very comfy! Amazing bird life, nice neighbors. Perfect location to visit our family in the area. Would love to come back one day. We left the fish in the lake and emptied some bottle of nice wine instead.

We love the water and especially this lake. We looked for years before buying a cottage on beach drive. The scenery from this side of the lake is quite beautiful and tranquil.

Ella Dreskin purchased this cottage in 2010

No motor boats on the lake, just small electric engines, kayaks and sail boats. When the sun sets it creates a picture image of the trees and homes from across the lake on the lake surface.

Proximity to Mohegan Sun and Foxwood Casinos, Warner Theater, wine trail, antique shopping and close by skiing!

PERFECT GETAWAY FROM IT ALL!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I, along with another couple spent a long weekend here for my birthday. I can not picture a better way having spent it. Everything about our stay completely exceeded our expectations.
The home itself was so cozy and beautifully decorated. Both bedrooms had queen mattresses, which were extremely comfortable. The bathroom was stocked with more than enough towels, so there was no need to have to do laundry until we left. The kitchen was equip with everything we needed to cook. The only thing we had to run out for was food, which was convenient enough since there are multiple food stores within a ten minute drive. We even took advantage of the grill outside. The living room was great for relaxing by the fireplace, watching movies and playing board games, which there were a ton of.
The backyard was by far our favorite part of the home. We were fortunate enough to have beautiful weather all weekend. We spent each morning, drinking our coffee on the deck and taking in the picture perfect scenery. Our evenings were spent around the fire pit, which sits right on the edge of the lake. We were lucky enough to see a shooting star over the lake on our last night there! Also, the kayaks were an awesome bonus. We had such a great time getting out on the lake.
Ella, the owner was also a pleasure to deal with. She was very helpful in providing us with all the information we needed for our stay, as well as answering any questions we had. The whole rental process was quick and simple.
In the end, we couldn't have imagined staying anywhere else! We can't wait to plan another weekend here!

This comfy, cozy and delightful home was a perfect setting for a very emotional an difficult time for our family. Our children experienced winter(snow) for the first time-they are Floridians!
Ella and Paul answered our emails promptly and were wonderful to deal with. We are planning a trip for this summer. Thanks for sharing your home.

PERFECT SETTING FOR OUR FAMILY VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We had a beautiful fall day on Saturday - perfect for a kayak paddle around the lake. Our 2 year old can't stop talking about going out in the "canoe", and all the birds she saw. Thank you for sharing this special place.

IT WAS VERY RELAXING TO BE HERE!

  • 5 of 5
Usually we go on a vacation with our children and grandchildren and we love it, but it was very relaxing to be here, just the two of us. Enjoyed our stay at your lovely cottage. Took awhile to ascertain where the bird sounds were coming from. At first we thought they were up in your attic and found out it was your clock! You have an interesting selection of books.

LOVED OUR STAY HERE! WILL RETURN NEXT YEAR.

  • 5 of 5
Came here for 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The keurig coffee every morning was a nice touch. We used the kayaks provided, went fishing almost every day, did some wine tasting at Brown Vineyard - which was fun and ended up buying a couple of bottles to take back and drink by the fire. Enjoyed playing by the beach. We liked the décor of the house, very warm, very clean. Very nicely done! Overall - loved our stay here and would love to return next summer if available.

BEAUTIFUL DECOR/ACCOMMODATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
Very warm and welcoming! We forgot how much we love the northwest part of CT. It certainly is beautiful. We made good use of the fire pit. The weather was wonderful for the entire week!
