About Debbie Taylor

My husband and I started our family in the Boston area. Our three boys spent many weekends and summer vacations at the 'lake house' as we fondly refer to our home away from home. We have taught many a child how to waterski on this lake! Currently we live in Southern California as my husband followed an opportunity he could not pass up. He works for a movie theatre sound system manufacturer and I am an occupational therapy adminstrator at a pediatric clinic.

Debbie Taylor purchased this house in 1988

Why Debbie Taylor chose East Haddam

This 'lake house' of ours is our connection to family and friends in New England. We look forward to our time there every summer in August. All of our friends have thoroughly enjoyed their visits to the 'lake house' and refer to it as a beautiful piece of heaven!!

What makes this house unique

When you see the view of the serene and pristine lake you will immediately know why we fell in love with this property. The view takes your breath away! With the porch, the wrap around deck, the patio and the dock, the outdoor living spaces are wonderful. The open floor plan allows us to spend a lot of time together enjoying each other's company as well as the view from all rooms. We love the privacy, the fabulous restaurants and the infamous Goodspeed Opera House. Visits to the artistic town of Chester are highlights for us.

Family Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My family had a great time at this lake house in CT. The house had everything we needed, including a canoe and 2 kayaks for use on the lake. The home was well maintained and clean, and we loved the views from all the windows that face the lake.

Wonderful house on gorgeous lake

  • 5 of 5
I took my four grown children to this house for a special get away. It is a magical place- prettier than the photos!. The house itself is large, stylishly designed and furnished, with a big fieldstone fireplace in the living room. The dining room table is a fabulous long affair; the house would be perfect for Thanksgiving! The kitchen is modern and well- equipped. Everything was clean. There was a small deck off the master bedroom and a wonderful wrap-around deck off the great room overlooking the lake where we had breakfast and cocktails each day. One level down was a fire pit with chairs around it; we used it every evening. Then another level down a path, was the large private deck/dock on the lake with a row of six lovely chaise lounges. The house and decks and levels make the property feel like a luxury resort all your own. Every one of us loved being there. There are interesting places to see within a half hour of the house, but no one wanted to leave! We would love to return and hope one day we will. I should add that this is my first experience renting a property from VRBO, and I didn't know what to expect but I am now a fan of VRBO! This property is totally wonderful!

What a terrific week!!

  • 5 of 5
My summers get pretty crazy traveling for work and staying in numerous hotel rooms. When I finally managed to squeeze in a week off between jobs, I figured some rest and relaxation was what I needed most. Renting this beautiful lake house became everything I wanted and more. There was such a great mixture of tranquility and exciting lake activities. One minute I was lounging on the main deck, and the next I was swimming, canoeing, or even taking advantage of all the unique restaurants in town. If I could go back and do anything differently, I would have stayed longer than just one week. If you are looking for a place to relax while continuing to stay active and enjoying the outdoors, then this is your place. I hope to find time to go back and experience more of what East Haddam has to offer.

Great lakefront retreat

  • 5 of 5
This lakefront home is beautiful. There are 3 bedrooms and a large open concept living area that is comfortable for a group. The kitchen had all of the amenities. We got up early each morning for a canoe ride around the lake. The water was still and the air cool as we watched the birds begin the day. Each day we spent a good deal of time swimming, boating and sunning on the dock. In the afternoons, we explored all the little riverfront towns and returned for the sunset and cocktails on the deck. The Goodspeed Opera House is nearby and we enjoyed a performance there. Our stay here was delightful

Simply lovely property

  • 5 of 5
This property is so very special. The lake house and property is enveloped in natural beauty. Every view is framed by lush greenery and the reflection of a clear beautiful lake. The lake house has an open floor plan which is perfect for family/friends gatherings either in a lovely open air full ceiling dining/living room area, on the screened porch, or on the full length deck area. Each of the bedrooms are also spacious and very comfortable with breath taking views. The dock is another perfect place to relax and enjoy the lake water which is absolutely pristine. The property is clean, well-kept and the property owners were especially kind and helpful. The property is also conveniently located near top rated restaurants, interesting sight-seeing destinations, and quaint east coast shops. This property is a New England gem!
