Relaxing Lakeside Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's 5th year returning to this gorgeous little gem on Lake Monomonac. It is a perfect spot for families. Our daughter enjoyed many days either swimming in the lake or joining us for a jaunt on the paddle boat. The owners are fantastic and welcoming and took us out for a lovely evening ride around the lake on their boat. We also enjoyed many evening barbecues sitting out in the patio are as well as late night marshmallow roasting sessions with the bonfire. I would recommend this lake house to anyone looking for a relaxing and fun vacation.

It's All About The Water

  • 5 of 5

If you love the water this is the place for you. Throughout this immaculate and comfortable cottage are incredible lake views. We spent most days on the canvas covered patio with all our meals cooked on the grill. We were there for the 4th of July and had a front row seat to the fireworks. Swimming Kayaking paddle boarding and fishing are among the many amenities. Andre and Nancy were the perfect hosts. They took us for a delightful evening lake cruise on beautiful lake Monomonac. They were readily available to answer any questions. My husband and I are looking forward to returning next summer.

Relaxing Slice of Paradise on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

I can’t even begin to discuss how much this house on the lake is a little slice of paradise. My husband, daughter, and I have been staying here every year since the summer of 2012 and keep coming back. The home is clean and comfortable with great views of the lake from the dining room. The outside area can accommodate several people with a picnic table covered with a large umbrella cover. There are also several chairs to sit in, a fire pit, and a grill. Even on the days where the temperature rises, it feels calm and cool out there by the lake. There is also a wonderful large swing right by the water and a paddle boat that is super fun to take out on the lake. The owners, Nancy and Andre, are very welcoming and will answer any questions you may have. You also might get lucky with an evening ride out on their pontoon boat! I haven’t had one bad experience in the four stays we’ve had and I’m looking forward to our fifth stay this summer. Andre and Nancy have become like family to us. I HIGHLY recommend this property to anyone searching for a nice relaxing vacation!

Great place for people who like lakes, kayaking, cooking out, and nature. This is a nice , comfortable, lakefront home. The owners are present but not obtrusive. We really enjoyed the boat ride we went on with them. All in all it was a wonderful vacation and we look forward to returning. The Jolys
