We were fortunate to be able to spend the summers at Bashan Lake with our three sons, who, growing up, had the opportunity to learn how to swim, boat, ski, jetski, and explore the wonders of nature at this wonderful, crystal clear lake.
In 1988, we totally rebuilt the cottage, adding a second floor with an additional half bath. Loving the lake and the quiet surroundings, we moved down the street and made this our permanent residence in our retirement - and we love it!
Frank purchased this cottage in 1979
Why Frank chose East Haddam
We chose this lake due to the water quality, no restrictions on boating or watercraft, and the fact that this location was only 40 minutes from where we lived to being in the country.
What makes this cottage unique
Staying here in the summers, our sons had the opportunity to learn all types of lake activities, and to help out with farming with the local farmer and learn about country living.
