CHARMING LAKEFRONT COTTAGE

Ashford Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Cozy, charming lakefront cottage on quiet, spring-fed Lake Chaffee. Relax on the deck, swim, canoe or kayak around the lake to one of the little islands with rope swings, float on a raft, fish, enjoy the changing light, read, nap, go hiking in the nearby state park, or bike on scenic roadways.

Too calm? Head out for some antiquing in Pomfret, Woodstock or Brimfield, or head towards the CT wine trail, Sturbridge Village, nearby University of Connecticut, Mohegan Sun or Foxwoods Casinos, or Thompson International Speedway. Or try a ropes course or zip line at The Adventure Park at Storrs.

If you don't feel like grilling with lake views and eating under the stars, then head out to local, charming cafes.

The cottage itself is fully equipped - simple but comfortable indoor/outdoor living. Two bedrooms, one bath, full kitchen, and a living room and dining area which opens up to a very large deck overlooking the lake. Wi-Fi, cable television, free movies, music, board games, cards, and free US long distance phone calls. Enjoy the outdoor fire pit in the evening.

Located in historic Ashford, Connecticut, between New York City and Boston and an easy commute to Hartford, Boston or NY.

My family had a great stay at this lakefront cottage. The property provided everything we needed for our short getaway. It was great not to have to pack towels, linens, and kitchen basics for our stay. My husband and son had a great time fishing from the dock and taking the canoe out to the middle of the lake where they caught several larger bass and pickerels. My other son had fun exploring the lake with the kayak. We also enjoyed an excursion to the Mansfield drive-in theater about a half hour away. The owner was accommodating in letting us bring our dog and promptly returned our security deposit the same day we left. Thank you for a great time!

My wife and I had a very peaceful and relaxing time in this lakefront cottage. Everything you would need is provided. We sat on comfortable deck furniture looking at the tremendous view of the lake. I enjoyed exploring with my own kayak, though there is a canoe and kayak provided for use. The owner, Kathy, was helpful and easy to work with and we would definitely consider renting here again.

We spent a wonderful week at this great cottage right on peaceful Lake Chaffee. The house is charming, comfortable, and well stocked. Kathy has a canoe and kayak right there, and every day we were boating on the water, enjoying the relaxation of boating and fishing and discovery of the little islands on the lake. The fishing was outrageous. Our kids (aged 6 and 8) caught fish after fish--bass, crappie, bluegill, and perch. The double set of sliding glass doors in the back enable you to wake up to the beautiful restorative vista of the lake. The large deck with a grill and lots of seating, plus the firepit with seating just down by the lake and the little dock, let us spend beautiful evenings with friends and family, making smores, grilling, having a glass of wine, and getting that last twilight fishing in. A great week. Thank you Kathy!!

My husband and I just returned from the Cottage on the Lake. We had an absolutely wonderful time. We parked our car on Sunday and didn't move it until we left on Wednesday. Everything you will need is at the cottage. Whether you like fishing, swimming, canoeing or just sitting and looking over the lake and doing absolutely nothing, this place is for you. Beautiful fireplace outside for a campfire at night.

Kathleen was great to work with. We had a problem with the TV (we are not electronically inclined) and she spent time on the phone getting it to work (even though she was at the airport waiting to catch a flight).

The huge deck is fabulous. We spent hours just looking out at the water, watching birds and fish jumping. We even saw an otter a few times. There is also a great BBQ on the deck.

If you are looking for a place to just lay back and do nothing, this is the place for you. We are looking forward to going back again, and this time for a longer time. If you are looking for activities, attractions, restaurants, whatever, there is a book in the cottage that helps you with all of that. We just wanted to kick back and do nothing. Wonderful time at a wonderful place.

Quiet cottage on the lake

The cottage was cozy, clean, modernized and the A/C unit to cool the place was a wonderful additional.We found the accommodations, just as you pictured them; the windowed sliders and deck made for wonderful viewing of the lake; and the "additional" touches of basic foods on the premises, a pleasant surprise. While we never used the kayak or canoe, I'm sure others would enjoy those "amendities".
We were looking for a one-level place that was quiet and had "all the comforts" of home PLUS and found them in this cottage.
We would recommend it to others!
