I am one of twelve children. I grew up in Meriden, CT and used to come to Forest Lake every Summer, since 1950. I graduated from the University of Hartford in Hartford, CT in 1979 with BS in Business Administration and graduated with MBA in Management in 1986. I spent most of my career as Material Manager for a small company in Bloomfield, CT. My wife and I are currently retired. I am currently on the Winchester School Board and on the Zoning Board of Adjustment.

Bill McGrath purchased this apartment in 2005

I spent every Summer here, since 1950. I really loved the area and the people. My dream was to retire here. We purchased this property in 1992 and in 2005 we built our retirement home on Forest Lake. It's like being on vacation year round. We hate to leave to go anywhere else.

We love the lake, the woods, and the mountains. We like the rural character of the area. It's so peaceful and serene. It's like being on vacation year round. We like to travel, but we enjoy the area so much we don't like to leave.

RETURNING NEXT YEAR

  • 5 of 5
The accommodations were excellent. To look out the kitchen window and see the lake was amazingly beautiful. Sandie and Bill provided more than the conveniences of home and the apartment was lovely and extremely comfortable. In addition, they are warm and friendly people. I will definitely make it my next year's vacation.

BEAUTIFUL VACATION HOME WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED!

  • 5 of 5
My son took me on this vacation and we were both so impressed when we pulled up and saw the most gorgeous view of the lake and mountains that it was just breathtaking!
The owners were just fabulous. So pleasant and friendly. The apartment was just gorgeous. It has every possible item that you could possibly need and then some. I am disabled and I was just thrilled. Not a problem in the world..Everything is spotless. You don't have to bring hardly a thing from home.
I could just go on and on...BUT ..our plan is to try and go again next year and stay a bit longer.

Thanks for the wonderful time.

GREAT PLACE, WONDERFUL HOSTS!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a weekend at this apartment, and we're planning to return next year. The view of the lake from the living room is amazing! Unfortunately, we didn't have sunny days, but it was still great to just relax, reading and watching the rain on the lake. The house had everything we needed, and the owners, Bill and Sandy, could not be more friendly and attentive. They'll do everything to make sure you have an excellent stay. And we definitely did. Can't wait to go back, hopefully for a sunny summer week!
