Lovely Lakeside Cottage
This home is very comfortable and beautifully charming. We enjoyed our stay very much. The driveway is extremely difficult to navigate and if you have a large car or truck you will not be able to use it. Some changes need to be made to the driveway and parking situation of owner's car.
It feels as though this beautiful little guest house was designed specifically for me! It is both charming and functional. It is super-clean and Al, the host was willing to work with me to schedule-in a couple of extra days. Spent my mornings having tea down on the dock....and enjoyed a cocktail down there too! Like I said, "just lovely"
This cottage is highly recommended to those seeking a peaceful retreat at Lake Waramaug. It is very clean and tastefully decorated in a serene cottage style. The yard and terrace are very well kept and there is access to the lake across the street, including use of a two person kayak. This is a great base from which you can explore the area.
Very cute cottage but fell short of expectations
The cottage is cute with a lot of potential. Unfortunately it’s in bad need of repairs and maintenance. There were no smoke detectors anywhere in the wooden structure, window and door screens ripped or nonexistent, white couch needs a cleaning, very mildewed due to leaking roof. The owner lives next door, but doesn’t inspect prior to guests arriving- the housekeeper was just leaving when we arrived and the owner was working in the garden - the dishwasher was left full of the previous tenants dirty dishes, dead bugs everywhere, etc.
Cozy , comfortable, clean
There are many ants on the kitchen counter...
Thank you for letting me know about the ants. I had someone come in and take care of them this morning.
It would be a lot harder without alerts from guests, and yours is very much appreciated. Thank you again.
a perfect winter
The cottage was perfect for our family winter trip. Clean, open and the prefect size. Having the fireplace just completed our winter break. Also, Al the host is very helpful and kind. The cottage is just a stones throw from the lake. It is a 16 minute drive to Mohawk mountain, where the kids can either snowboard or ski. We will be back. Thank you.
The Guest House is located on North Shore Road in Warren Connecticut, considered by many to be Lake Waramaug's Gold Coast. The property is surrounded by large private estates and is tucked into a secluded wooded area with access to a beautiful stone waterfront terrace, 'infinity' deck and dock with ladder for easy swim access.
