LAKE FRONT CABIN, PRIVATE DOCK, BOAT HOUSE, LARGE FENCED YARD

Sandy Hook Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, Sleeps 6-8

Our Lake Cabin has been a great place to bring our family together and enjoy the beauty and peace of the area. The unobstructed views of the lake and Kettletown Forest State Park has a calming effect on you. The Bald Eagles catching fish and eating them on the dock is just a fantastic sight. We enjoy the nature trail into Paugussette Forest from the private community easement. The local bird population feeding on our yard feeders put on a show. Our favorite past time is taking the pontoon boat for a ride a long the lake and just enjoying the beauty of it and maybe jumping in for a dip.

The cabin has hard wood floors, knotty pine throughout. It has central A/C in 1/2 the cabin and window unite for each of the bedrooms and TV room. It is well furnished and has sleep number beds in both the bedrooms ( 1 king & 1 queen). It has 3 TVs with a blue ray wifi DVD player and cable. The Den has a queen size futon, a 58' plasma TV, a dell desk top computer with printer. The library has comfy chairs, great view, lots of music, DVD and board games. The living room has two comfy recliners and sofa. The large stone fireplace has a Mendota gas insert that runs by remote. There is a swing on the large oak tree in the fenced yard along with a comfy hammock. There are horseshoes and cricket games to use. Plenty of room for children and their dog to play.

Newtown and Sandy Hook have great markets and wonderful restaurants. A complete listing is in the cabin. Our lot is 20,000 square feet and we have great neighbors on either side of us. Our cabin is 2nd from the beach and loading ramp. It is also wired for Generator in case of power outage.

About Owner

My name is Laura and my wonderful husband is Greg. I am an accountant and my husband is a retired paint mfg. We have enjoyed many years here, spring, summer,fall and winter are all pretty from our views.

Owner purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Owner chose Sandy Hook

Our grand daughter lives in Darien with her parents and we wanted to have a place to visit with her for longer periods of time. We spend most of the year in San Clemente, California. Our grand daughter now is preparing to go off to college.

What makes this cabin unique

This is a turn key home. We gutted it and replaced everything 12 years ago. It is a beautiful peaceful place on the Lake. It has been well cared for. We will be putting it on the sales market soon, so come stay and enjoy it while you can, maybe even buy it. Our grand daughter will be going to school on the West coast, closer to us. She is the reason we bought it 12 years ago.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Laura & Greg,

We enjoyed our stay and our New England Thanksgiving celebration. Your cabin is lovely and we really enjoyed the big stone fireplace. Thank you for leaving the wood and the Champagne in Fridge, we used them both. Our children loved the TV Room and we could enjoy the living room and library in peace. We hope to come back next year. Thank you

30th anniversary

  • 5 of 5
When I walked into this home all I could do was smile! The pictures of this home and location do it no justice, it is beautiful. I grew up on Lake Zoar and it felt like I was home again! We watched eagles soar down the lake and squirrels swimming. So very peaceful and quiet. Beautifully landscaped and the inside of the home is pristine. There was nothing, and I mean nothing, that was not supplied in this home. It had more things at my disposal than I do at my own home. All I needed to bring was our clothes. The beds were very comfortable. We also rented the boat which is a must for anyone! Long rides down the lake were beautiful.
From start to finish, we could ask for no more. Thank you so much for giving us the privilege of staying at your home and we will hopefully be back next year!

Simply Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5
Truly wish we could give this more then 5 stars. Everything was perfect! The house itself is amazing. Perfect mix of everything you could want or need for a vacation on the lake. We had so much fun with everything from boating around on the lake to just sitting out on the deck relaxing with a coffee.
The house has everything you would need and more.
The owner is one of the kindest people. Quick to answer any question. Her kindness made us feel like we were at home, we felt so welcome in the house which made the experience so much better.

We would highly recommend this place to anyone and will definitely be back for another stay!

Second Childhood

  • 5 of 5
The information about this lakeside cabin spoke to me at first reading. When we arrived I knew why... It is a wonderful combination of comfort and adventure. This experience was filled with the best parts of childhood combined with the fun and appreciation as an adult. The lake view is stirring, with quiet mornings, birds, sunrise on the trees, coffee on the deck...lovely!
We thoroughly enjoyed the boat, loved exploring the lake and swimming. You can see water skiers, jet skiers, and small fishing boats...just enough activity or the ability to have serene solitude.

The house is very clean, very comfortable with ample amenities for cooking, grilling, dining outside on the large deck or in the dining room. We spent a lot of time on the dock looking at the stars after sunset boat rides.

This was a perfect getaway, The owner has taken great care to provide all the creature comforts. The cabin is a good size with a nice balance of casual living and just the right amount of lakeside luxury.

The owner was very helpful and responsive, she answered all the questions that were important to me with an ease that made the entire experience even more relaxing.

I would highly recommend this lake front cabin.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful relaxing place to stay. The location provides alot of privacy and scenic beauty. The property is meticulously maintained both inside and out with virtually anything you can think of provided. We spent alot of time on the deck relaxing and playing with our 5 year old son in the side yard( he particularly liked the rope swing).Cruising on the boat is also great fun. The owners provide a basket with restaurant menus and activities in the area that is a very helpful when you decide to go out. We look forward to returning here in the future and would highly recommend it to others.

Thank you

  • 5 of 5
We recently rented out this cabin for a week. It's very cozy, beautiful and very well equipped. And the lake view is awesome! Very peaceful place. Our goal was to relax and do nothing and, with your help, we succeeded. We had a fantastic time and would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
