About Ella Dreskin
We love the water and especially this lake. We looked for years before buying a home on beach drive. The scenery from this side of the lake is quite breathtaking and tranquil.
Ella Dreskin purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Ella Dreskin chose Northwest Harwinton
No motor boats on the lake, just small electric engines, kayaks and sail boats. When the sun sets it creates a picture image of the trees and homes from across the lake on the lake surface.
What makes this Cottage unique
Proximity to Mohegan Sun and Foxwood Casinos, Warner Theater, wine trail, antique shopping, hiking trails and close to Ski Sundown!

Sports & Adventure Activities
This is a gorgeous lake side house.
Dreskin's property is equipped with all necessities and is just gorgeous. Close to the beach and just a wonderful view of the lake. Use the kayak's to paddle around the lake. Rented the house for July 4th week. Recommend highly.
Awwww thank you for your kind words. Our property is very special and we are so happy that you loved it too! Come back any time or any season and it's always magical.

Terrible in winter
We arrived on 12/23 after a snow/ ice storm.
A trailer was in the driveway plugged into the house and did not allow entry unless walking on grass. Steps were ice no access to house
We argued with the owner who was very sarcastic and said how am I supposed to know the weather conditions. We refused to stay.
We are currently in a dispute with Our charge through VISA
We also would not have felt safe since we did not know if anyone was living in the trailer in the driveway. The owner offered no solution and never followed up.
Unassuming, cared-for home, clearly much-loved by the owners.
House is set up for comfort: outstanding, well-equipped kitchen, knives that were actually sharp(!), basic foods (condiments, spices, etc.), paper goods; terrific bathroom with plenty of towels, heater, soaps; living room/dining area cozy without being cramped, lovely view, working fireplace, comfortable furniture ...this is probably the most homey, friendly, and hospitable place we have found on VRBO. We had a great time, a tranquil and restful New Year's, despite the temperature never rising higher than 6. Quiet, unpretentious neighborhood. Highly recommended.
Relaxing getaway weekend
This was the perfect place to spend a long weekend to relax and recharge. We enjoyed reading by the lake, on the deck, or taking a nap in the great room with great views of the lake. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. I enjoyed that my dog could spend the weekend with me and the house was set up to make it easy to have a dog on vacation
Very sweet and very clean
Would be nicer with little better bath towels and wash cloths though!
Beautiful home. Scenic place. Points of interest nearby.
Lovely, comfortable home, terrific view, kayackibg swimming. We had a grand time.
