COZY 5 BEDROOM COTTAGE ON BANTAM LAKE

Bantam Lake Cottage Rental Photos and Description

5 BR, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 10

Cute and cozy 5-bedroom lakefront furnished cottage with sunny deck, cottagey furnishings, beautiful sunsets, and your own private boat dock (shared with cottage owner) right out the back door.

This is a sweet little spot that is perfect for families or small groups. Before deciding to buy this house and the one next door, my husband, two daughters, and I rented this house ourselves for two summers. We loved it so much we had to make it our own. We generally keep it available for our friends and family who come to visit us, but for weeks we don't have guests, we open it up to other families like yours.

While the house is not fancy, it is the quintessential lake cottage that has everything you might need. With the entire downstairs dedicated to living space, and the upstairs set up with five cute little bedrooms, and a bathroom with a shower, it's very livable and cozy.

I personally have cooked meals for 12-15 with no trouble in the fully-outfitted kitchen. And we've enjoyed countless BBQs and sunsets off the deck. This place has been truly heaven for me and my family. Perhaps you'd like to create some special memories here as well.

At our cottage you will enjoy dining on your deck while you watch the kids fish and swim off the dock. The cottage is situated on Deer Island, facing the cove, where the lake is most tranquil.

Ideal for families with children as there are five total bedrooms: two bedrooms with queen size bed and three bedrooms with a twin-sized trundle bed in each room. Easily accommodates 10.

There are 2.5 bathrooms. A full bath with tub on the first floor. A NEW full bath with shower on the 2nd floor. And another 1/2 bath downstairs.

The home is also idea for social gatherings or get-togethers of friends and family.

You will have your own dock (shared with the cottage owner) where you can dock a boat if you have one.

In addition to the fun of direct waterfront activities, there is also cable tv, WiFi, golf, fine dining, quaint village antiquing and shopping in Litchfield only a few minutes away by car.

The cottage is only 2 hours from NYC, 20 minutes to wineries and beautiful Connecticut sightseeing. In addition, White Memorial Woods on the lake (5 minutes away by car or boat) is a beautiful spot for hiking, canoeing, and kayaking, and Sandy Beach and Morris Town Beach offer a fun place for beach swimming (especially great for children).

* Our standard weekly rental includes 6 nights and 7 days that begin on a Saturday and conclude on a Friday.

Instant relaxation

  • 5 of 5
I have had an intimate knowledge of Deer Island and Bantam Lake for 42 years as my parents used to own this house and the one next to it for a few decades. They moved in the mid 1990s but my love of the place has never waned.

This is a beautiful summer cottage owned by an equally beautiful and compassionate family. The amenities at the cabin were perfect. We never needed any more than what was provided. We spent several calm mornings kayaking around the lake and it was nearly impossible to get the kids out of the water at the other times.

On a rainy day, we took a great drive through some small CT and MA towns. On the nicer days, there was no reason to leave the cottage or the island.

The owners of this property have put a lot of love into this cabin to make it the PERFECT get a away. Great little touches like an ice cream machine made the week a family memory we'll treasure forever!! We're already planning to carve out two weeks next summer!

Wonderful Retreat Weekend

  • 5 of 5
The cottage on Bantam Lake was wonderful- beautifully decorated, very roomy, lots of sleeping space and open floor plan. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed.Coco and her family were delightful to deal with and they even brought our group a delicious gift of chocolate. The lake is breathtaking and we enjoyed kayaking and fishing. Very peaceful in the cove. Deer Island is a beautiful spot and we will be back again!
