A wonderful lakefront property and area for a relaxing getaway with a terrific owner and host
I just had an incredible weekend at this property with my two dogs and a guest I invited for part of this day. First of all the owner Chris is so responsive to any requests and really goes out of his way to make sure that you have everything you need for a great little vacation. Before I even got there he assured me that there was air conditioning in both bedrooms because my older dog gets overheated. When I arrived Chris also showed me fans and the ac and how everything worked and made sure that I knew everything to enjoy the area thoroughly. There is in addition to the fenced in property and beautiful dock on the crystal clear lake which is so quiet because there are no motor boats A beautiful sandy private beach that is A couple of minutes walk down the road one way, and a couple of minutes or less down the road to the other way is the boat launch for the community where you could take your dogs to swim. We enjoyed the rowboats the kayak paddle boat and a big blowup floating ring tremendously! The water was warm and crystal clear we stayed in the sandy lakefront area in the private beach for hours until our fingers and toes are wrinkled up like prunes and we were so happy.
We and our 3 kids and puppy had a great 3 night stay! We fished, kayaked, and SUPed to our hearts’ delight. The only drawback was the very low water pressure in the shower, but that was not a priority at this location. Thank you for some great family memories!
Thank you Chris for renting us your home for the 2nd year. And accommodating all our requests. And hope to stay again next year.
Lovely lakeside cottage
We had a fantastic stay at this charming cottage. We had a great time boating around the beautiful lake, and Christopher was a very accommodating host. The surrounding community is peaceful—perfect for a relaxing getaway. We’d love to come back!
We enjoyed a lot
Wonderful stay for my family and me we enjoyed the water and the privacy we recieved. Kayak was one of the best activities we did there. Overall it was a great place to stay it was nice and cozy for the whole family. My dog also had alot of fun.
Very rustic, cozy, and well equipped property. It was three days in heaven. The confined backyard kept the dogs in at all times. Explored the lake kayaking. Also tried the paddle boat. Bonfires, BBQs on the grill, and wine every night. Loved the dock. As a photographer, I enjoyed taking pictures of everything. Thank you, Chris, for sharing your lovely property. We even enjoyed watching the thunderstorm from the inside!!!
(I have to mention for those who complain about property being “too rustic” about “no ladder on the dock”, these are rural country properties-not the Hilton Hotel or an all inclusive swimming pool in the Caribbean. And for those complaing about the lake being shallow..... write a complaint letter to Mother Nature). We love these properties, mostly to get away from “shallow” and ridiculous people!!!!). Had to throw that in! Again, THANK YOU, Chris!!!! Will most definitely return!
Nestled in the northwest hills of Connecticut, Bethlehem is more affectionately known as the 'Christmas town' for its name and winter festivities. Located in Litchfield County, which still offers picturesque farmlands and 'Norman Rockwell' main streets. Long Meadow Lake is a very tranquil, peaceful lake perfect for relaxing on the private beach areas, going for a swim, or cruising the lake in canoes, kayaks, paddleboats, or row boats (no gas motors only electric trolling motors allowed). Come enjoy the New England seasons.
