About Ben and Kim
My husband and I are both working professionals who are raising three boys. I was born and raised on Long Island, NY and my husband was raised in both mid-state NY and CT. We currently reside in Hartford County, CT.
Ben and Kim purchased this House in 2016
Why Ben and Kim chose Lake Pocotopaug
I always wanted a lake house! I love the feel of a lake community, the serenity of being next to the water, and the convenience of being right on the water. Somehow I was able to convince my husband to invest in my dream. We fell in love with Lake Pocotopaug right away! Unfortunately, with our heck schedules we don't get to enjoy the house as much as we would like to. We hope you get as much enjoyment out of the property as we do!

A nice little getaway
House and lake view beautiful very relaxing
Lovely home for active families. Great exercise on the many stairs, kayaks and stand up paddle boards. Quaint places to visit and eat within a 5 mile radius. Next time we will take bikes and ride around the lake, estimating 10 miles.
FYI, this lake often has high bacteria levels. We found this out from a neighbor. We avoided swimming and showered immediately after water activities.
Week at the lake.
We came to town for our daughters wedding and needed a place to stay. The lake home was meticulously clean and well equipped for our stay. We will most likely request to stay again!
Carol was a wonderful guest. She was super communicative and left the house in great shape. I was happy to receive a picture of her daughter and son-in-law at their wedding ceremony. She is welcome back any time!!
Beautiful house, beautiful location. Excellent stay for guests in from out of town for our daughters wedding. Thank you Kim!!!
Beautiful lake home with abundant amenities. The hosts are gracious and have taken care of every detail. The would definitely stay here again.
Clean and Organized
Our stay was wonderful. I rented the home for my family to stay in during our wedding weekend. They enjoyed their stay. The only thing to note is there are a lot of stairs so be mindful of that if you have small children or have back issues. :)
There is lots to do in the area! For example, if you are looking for some adventure there is Brownstone Park which is an adventure center for rock climbing, swimming, zip lining, hiking, cliff jumping and more. There is also Arrigoni Winery that has live music and wine tasting on the weekends. Angelico's Lake House Restaurant has a tiki bar that is so much fun in the summer with live music and free transportation in case you have a little too much fun!
Feeling lucky? Head over to Foxwoods Casino or Mohegan Sun. Each one is roughly 39-40 minutes away.
