Lovely cottage nestled on quiet lot near one of the most gorgeous beaches you've ever seen - Lollipop Island. The water is crystal clear and great for kayaking, canoeing, sailing, swimming, fishing and just enjoying the sun and sunsets. The cottage has a beach cart, two kayaks and two bicycles for your use; just off the wrap-around deck is a stone fire ring for your campfire and s'mores. The cottage is very comfortable with everything you need, including laundry, fully applianced kitchen, CATV flat-screen TV/DVD player, new mattresses, high chair and portable crib. Use any of the private association's areas, including the other large beach across the lake. Within a few mins' drive are stores, restaurants and fuel; within 30 mins. are fancier options in Glastonbury and Hartford, or in CT's 3 casinos. Mystic is only about 45 mins. away; New York is 2 hours; Boston or the Vermont border about 1.5 hrs. If you let us know your interests, we will gladly make some area recommendations for your vacation, if desired. We have lived in this area and region most of our lives. For academic/sabbatical guests, the house is centrally located among the colleges and universities of eastern and central Connecticut.
We are quite open to sharing our home, or using it ourselves - it's all good! Because we live nearby we are accessible to our guests for help if any issues arise - but the few issues that have, were minor and most of our guests have been extremely pleased with their stays - we already have some guests who have returned the following year, or rented additional weeks in the same year.
Before we had this property giving us access to beaches and water recreation, we really didn't know what we'd been missing. We were fortunate the home is only a few minutes drive from our primary residence, so it is easy to get there and easy to help our guests have the best stay possible.
