Connecticut Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage with Beautiful Lakside Property, perfect seasonal getaway!

We still have a handful of dates left for the summer. August 7-9 or August 10-12,

August 24-25. We just reduced the rates by 25% on these last set of dates.

Labor Day weekend is still open but will certainly book soon.

The cottage feels like you are at a cabin up in Maine. It has a rustic feel and it is on a quiet lake that time seems to have forgotten. It is literally right on the water as you can see in the pictures

The waterfront cottage has 2 bedrooms with queen beds. It has a large living room with an old stone fireplace. The extra large screened in porch is a favorite place for meals overlooking the water. We have kept the rustic feel of the cottage with an updated kitchen which comes equipped with dishes and appliances. Just bring your food to have your meals inside or on the screen porch. There is a gas grill and two outdoor fire pits which also overlook the water.

Kayaks and a canoe are provided for your use at no additional charge. We also have horseshoes, wireless internet at a good speed, DVD player and basic TV, and a few lawn games and indoor games, and a couple basic old bikes for your use.

The cottage is removed from noise and bustle on the quite, beautiful lake, but is still just a 10 minute drive from Mystic, a favorite tourist town, 5 area wineries, the Connecticut Shoreline, and 5 minutes from Foxwoods casino.

If dates are full or if you are looking for a second rental nearby for a family and friends, please check out our other cottage on this same lake for pictures and reviews on how others have enjoyed their vacations at our sister property. The listing is HomeAway #3945127.

Prime dates fill on this cottage early so please make your reservations as soon as possible. We are happy to answer any questions you may have and are eager to make your stay and enjoyable and memorable as possible. Additional discounts available if payment made by check rather than credit card. Please inquire if interested.

What makes this cottage unique

Included in the lakeside house are kayks, canoe, large Huck Finn style raft swim off of or to explore the lake and the connecting lake. There are bikes to explore the area, two campfire areas and a propane grill. All are included in the price of the cottage. If you bring your fishing rod, the fishing is great.

You won't be disappointed!

First I would like to thank Bobby and Karen! They think of everything and are quick to help if you need anything! This was my second stay at this cottage and the owner, Bobby, went above and beyond welcoming me back and offering many options for our stay!!! Thank you Bobby you were so accommodating...what a pleasure!

I booked Mother's Day weekend and although the weather was not great our stay was! This cottage has everything you could possibly need to enjoy nice weather and even when it is not! (I set up a canopy on the dock before anyone arrived and did some reading! I was wrapped in a blanket sitting in an Adirondack chair! Listening to the rain and watching it dance as it hit the lake was mesmerizing! I have not felt so relaxed and peaceful in a long time!)

Since others have reviewed and stated how this cottage has everything you need and more (it really does!) I decided to share another great bonus this cottage offers! Making you feel like you got away on a great vacation whether you drive a few hours or a few minutes!

I booked this so a few of us Moms could just relax and enjoy each others company without always being rushed! Perfect!

Here comes the best part...I live about 15 minutes away in Gales Ferry!?! This is a great place for travelers from any distance but locals need to try this! Since this is close by family and fiends can stop by when they can! My sister in law was able to go to work and then come back. (She even got a surprise visit from her son serving his weekend with Natl Guard since we stayed close to home!) Long car rides, big gas bills, traffic, etc are a part of my past now since I can escape to this lake retreat and feel like I am many miles away! Fall foliage getaway, romantic winter escape snuggled by the fire, family time anytime, spring fishing trips, summer fun....anytime! Any occasion or just because, book this cottage, you won't be disappointed!!! Thanks again Bobby and Karen!

Pictures do not compare to the real thing!

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely the perfect getaway! We only stayed a weekend, but it was enough to make sure we will be back as soon as we can. The cottage is much bigger then we thought and was extremely cozy, again pictures do not do it justice. The view and the water access is absolutely unbelievable!! I can't say enough about Bobby and Karen, great people, and extremely easy to work with. We hit bad traffic and didn't arrive until after 11:30pm and Bobby waited up for us and kept his phone on in case we had questions or issues. This place was exactly what we were looking for and we can't wait for our next trip. Bobby, Thank you again for the use of your amazing property :)

Great place to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

This cottage had everything we were looking for to get away from the city. Peaceful environment, well-equipped, and surrounded by lovely fall colors. It was a hit with everyone in our group.

Wonderful get away for us and the dogs

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for us! A vintage lake cottage with many upgrades, great kitchen and a wrap around screened porch to watch the ducks and geese and fishermen. Plenty of privacy but with other cottages in the neighborhood. The owner and concierge (yes a concierge service) made sure everything was perfect for our arrival. And reasonably priced, too. We brought two small dogs who enjoyed the walks and lake as much as we did. Its so hard to find a nice cottage that is pet friendly and this one fits the bill nicely. Close to Mystic for sightseeing and shopping. We would definitely rent it again if we are ever in the area!
