Ultimate Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We have been with a group of 10-12 people or two years in a row and everything has been perfect. The price is reasonable, there are amenities in the house ready to use, the owner calls to make sure everything is set, and much more. I can't say enough about how great the experience has been in 2013 and 2014 and we can't wait to come back in 2015. The pictures don't even do this place justice. Thanks to Alden for some great memories!

Did NOT want to leave!

  • 5 of 5
I was very excited when I saw the listing for this property and even more excited when I saw it was available the weekend I was looking at. A group of friends and I, 10 of us in total, decided we needed a short get away and we could not have picked a better place! It was the perfect size for our group! All of us had beds to sleep in and there was plenty of seating downstairs to accommodate us all as well. The canoe come in handy and there was plenty of fishing happening off the dock! The kitchen was AWESOME! There is also 3 full baths AND an outdoor shower so that was very helpful! The owner called us the day we arrived just to make sure we made it and had everything we needed. The house was fully stocked with all the amenities. We all had the best weekend and can't wait to go back!!!! Thanks Alden for an amazing experience!!

If only life could be this sweet all the time

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful and secluded lakeside retreat! We found comfortable bedrooms, a modern kitchen and two indoor fireplaces! The lake is insanely beautiful and it's great to relax around the fire pit at night under the stars. I could not recommend this more highly. Bring the chef in your life and forget the world.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5
Spent the weekend with my family and our first impression of the house was very positive. The place had many rooms including other sleeping arrangements allowing all of us to sleep comfortably. The house also comes equipped with utilities for kitchen, bathroom and outdoor activities. Everything listed on the ad was there and more. It was a pleasure working with the owner and I will look forward to renting again.

Notes:
Think 1920s lake cottage with big living room (30'x35') and front porch (12'x36') overlooking the lake. Lake Wononscopomuc restricts motor boats to 10 hp or less; therefore no water skiing and no loud boats. Lake access is either via a short stair-case and dock or a longer staircase and a small beach. The lake is the deepest in CT and always cool. A woodstove in the living room and a fire-place in the kitchen can cope with weather in the 30s and 40s. Recreational activities include golf, tennis and hiking --- all within 300 yards --- and water sports. You are welcome to our kayak, Sunfish, and two canoes. The Interlaken Inn is about 300 yards away and offers a restaurant, bar and escape for adults. Groceries, clothing store, book store, movie theater, etc. are 3 miles away in Millerton, NY. Pets and children are welcome with the normal, 'You break it; you bought it!' rule.
