Wangumbaug Lake, also known as Coventry Lake, covers 373 acres (1.51 km2). The lake is fed by springs, and has one natural outlet, known as Coventry Lake Brook. The brook flows towards South Coventry center and ultimately into the Willimantic River. Patriots Park, located on Wangumbaug Lake, contains a guarded beach, playground, picnic area, lodge facilities, Community Center, and band shell for summer concerts. It is also home of the Coventry Lake Water Ski Team and UConn Men and Women’s Crew Teams. The boat launch is run by the State of Connecticut. Occasionally, during the winter months, the lake will freeze over and residents have the opportunity to skate or fish on the ice.

History: The birthplace of Captain Nathan Hale, Coventry is home to the Nathan Hale Homestead, which is now a museum open to the public.The old center of the town is in South Coventry, near the intersection of Main Street (Route 31) and Stonehouse Road (Route 275). In the 19th century, there was a small industrial center including mills powered by the water from Coventry Lake Brook as it flowed towards the Willimantic River. South Coventry Village, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, also includes several Victorian houses, a museum, the main branch of the public library and the Bidwell Tavern, a bar/restaurant established in 1822. The Bidwell used to keep Coventry's town records in the 'vault' area behind the bar, as well as hosting town meetings.[3] A few doors away is the W.L Wellwood General Store, which under new ownership has been renamed 'Coventry Country Store'. The general store was originally built in 1787 making it one of, if not the oldest General Store in America (a past owner claimed to have not found an older store). In all, the area has over 100 historical buildings on the national register.

Miscellaneous information:

The center of North Coventry is at the intersection of Main Street (CT Route 31) and U.S. Route 44 (section officially known as the Boston Turnpike, but usually referred to simply as 'Route 44'). Near this intersection are two shopping plazas. The first contains a large Highland Park Market. One can buy most any type of common foodstuffs here, as well as freshly baked bread in the morning. This plaza also contains the Meadow Brook Package Store and the Coventry office of Rockville Bank. The second plaza had a NewAlliance Bank now a First Niagara Bank, as well as a CVS and a Dunkin' Donuts. Recently a Walgreens was added across the street from CVS.

Rustic Cabin on the Lake

  • 3 of 5

We had a nice stay. The owner was friendly with good communication. The cabin has an updated kitchen with all conveniences. The bathroom is clean but tiny. Walk out the screened porch and you have direct beach access. We enjoyed some lovely evenings by the fire pit. The owner also provides three kayaks and life vests, which we took advantage of.

This was our first stay at a lake, and I'd say this lake is not the place to go for peace and quiet. There were large families on either side of our cabin using ski boats and jet skis, so there was a lot of noise and little privacy when we were outdoors in the daytime. That situation improved greatly at night, however. The noise and privacy are out of the owner's control, but they did have a negative impact on our rating.

The location was convenient: close to UConn and other things we're into. Great old drive-in theater nearby, also a huge flea market and farmer's market on Sundays.

Quaint cottage with an amazing view and everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

My family recently stayed here for a brief trip to visit family. The owner was very responsive and welcoming. After making sure we were all set with everything, he gave us our space to enjoy our trip. We had absolutely everything we needed... From a keurig to dishwashing and laundry pods, to an extra cot and blankets. The grocery store was down the street as well as a CVS and Dunkin Donuts. Overall - we had a wonderful time and enjoyed our stay. We would absolutely recommend and stay there again.

Great little beach house

  • 5 of 5

Great rental home. Small, but nice layout. There is plenty of seating inside and on the screened-in porch. We really enjoyed the beach, kayaks, and paddle boat. Would definitely consider staying again. Also enjoyed all the extras. No need to bring anything but your personal belongings.

Fun on Coventry Lake

  • 4 of 5

Can't begin to say how much fun it was on the lake and use of the Kayaks and paddle boat were great with the grandchildren. The bedrooms were spacious and beds were so comfortable! Could have used a bigger bathroom, or another one, but all in all was everything we needed. Kitchen was updated and everything needed was there. Will definitely stay again!

Great property and exceptional customer service!

  • 5 of 5

Great property and attentive owner. Everything was as described or better. The back yard IS the lake. The owner provided kayaks, a pedal boat, flotation vests, a fire pit etc. There was plenty of bedding, towels and toiletries. A dishwasher and clothes washer and dryer were also included. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to a friend and/or return again.
