I own a Travel Agency for 30 years and love to travel. I really have been fortunate to see the world but I believe the most beautiful spot is this cottage which I live four doors away from-it is hard to describe the new lease on life you obtain after a week of being on the water and going to sleep after the most beautiful sunsets over the Berkshire Mountains. I am also a licensed realtor with the State of CT to sell and list properties
Richard Synnott purchased this house in 2001
It is in the best location of the lake with beautiful sunsets on your very private dock. Views from the great room are spectacular overlooking the lake. There is a vacant lot next door to you to add to the privacy. You are 240 feet off the road which is great for safety and serenity.
Stationary dock that does not bob with lake motion. Open kitchen and great room overlooking the lake. Extremely private for a lake house. Private deck overlooking dock with gas grill.
What an amazing week we spent at this spotless cottage. It was a pure delight! Everything, and I mean everything was exactly as Rick described. The decor and cleanliness made it a welcoming place to reside and honestly we hated to leave. The beds were so comfortable that it was easy to sleep in and relax. Yet when we felt like being active there was plenty to do. The lake itself is incredible. The view was spectacular and I can't even begin to describe the sunsets. The cottage had plenty of space to entertain both inside and out. Plenty of room for company to stay when friends and family dropped in. This cottage is so well maintained both inside and outside that it is impressive. Rick, you have thought of all the little things that make this cottage a beautiful home. Thanks for sharing your piece of heaven. I can't wait to return. I definitely recommend this property to rent. I can guarantee that you won't be sorry.
House was very roomy for five of us. Well equipped for cooking and relaxing. Nice dining room and TV area. Outside grill on landing was convenient for talking and cooking. Terrific, stable and spacious dock was great for reading, relaxing, sunning, jumping in the lake and lots of good conversation with family. Beautiful lake just the right size for walking, running and cycling. Had a great time and would stay here again.
We had such a wonderful time at your cottage! The cottage is cozy but very clean and comfortable with all the supplies we needed for the week. Rick was very attentive and a phone call away if we needed anything. The view was beautiful and the steps into the water made it easy for our children to swim and enjoy the lake. We are already planning our next vacation there next year!!
My family gathered in Wiinsted, CT for the Christmas Holiday, and we had need of additional housing. I am very glad we found this place!! The property is well-cared for, clean, and well equipped for everything you would need. Great views and cozy. The owner is wonderful, and made our stay fantastic. Thanks again, Rick! We will visit and stay again.
Wonderful cottage right on the largest of the three bays on Highland Lake. The cottage was neat and clean, had everything we needed, and the kitchen was well equipped. Beds were very comfortable, Owner stopped by early in our stay to let us know he was prepared to respond to anything we needed. It has a great dock for boating. The owner provides a canoe, and we brought two kayaks. We came for a week of fishing and relaxing, and in addition to fishing Highland Lake (great bass lake!), the location is just 10 minutes from the Farmington River (fabulous trout stream). Plenty of good restaurants right in town (Winsted is only 5 minutes away), and a great Italian restaurant (Marino's), a pizza shop, and a spirit store are within a mile from the cottage. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy water sports and relaxing in a recreational lake area.
We were looking for a nice place right on the water and we were not disappointed. The cottage was cute, clean, and the kitchen was well equipped for everything you would need to cook and serve your favorite meals. When not swimming or playing cards on the dock, we enjoyed going for walks and doing puzzles as we overlooked the beautiful lake from the dining table. We were also able to take a day trip into New York City by taking a train right into Grand Central Station which was a lot of fun. Rick the manager was very helpful in making suggestions for our trip as well. The only slight complaint would be that the walls in the front two bedrooms don't extend all the way to the ceiling which can be an issue with lighting and privacy but having said that I would certainly recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking for a nice, clean cottage on a beautiful lake.
