Overview

Ledyard Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage with Beautiful Lakside Property, perfect seasonal getaway!

Fall:

See our preview of the property: https://youtu.be/WOnoIeq3OBs

Autumn is a wonderful time to come to the cottage. The lake is surrounded by fall color, and the views are beautiful from the porch, deck, and kayaks. As the nights cool down, it’s the perfect time of year for campfires and enjoying the hot tub overhanging the water and under the stars.

Take a walk or a bike ride along the coast, through Mystic, or in the woods such as up Lantern Hill. You can also visit orchards, wineries, Foxwoods, or other attractions at MysticCountry.com.

The cottage feels like you are at a cabin up in Maine. It has a rustic feel and it is on a quiet lake where time seems to have been 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 spacious living room with a wood stove. The large screened-in porch is a favorite place for meals overlooking the water. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready, just bring your food. 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, old bikes, internet, DVD player, basic TV, a few lawn games and indoor games. If you choose, we have a discount paddleboard rental for just $20, and hot tub rental for $100 or less. The tub sits over the water and under the stars, or enjoy a campfire with firewood provided with no charge.

The cottage is removed from noise and bustle on the quite, beautiful lake, but it 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. The listing is HomeAway #3945127 to see pictures and reviews.

Book early if you need specific dates. We are happy to answer any questions you may have, email us for more information or ask us to call you back. Additional discounts available via various payment methods, and for return guests. Please inquire if interested.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Best location on the lake! What a beautiful view. My wife and I loved this cottage. It was so cozy yet spacious, and had everything we needed. There was a nice fire pit, kayaks, hot tub, and swimming area. We also went to downtown Mystic for an evening and it was wonderful. We hope to come again next year.

Feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

I had such a fun time with my two kids. It felt like a home away from home. I loved being able to go right in the lake and there were kayaks for us to use! The deck was nice to hang out on and well kept. The owners were so kind and welcoming too! Great stay!

Beautiful Cottage on a beautiful pond

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at this college, it was so peaceful and beautiful with great amenities. Great place to take the family, and enjoy some outdoor activities. Star gazing at night was my favorite part because there is no light pollution there.

Fun family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spot on the lake with a beautiful view! My family loved swimming in the water, hot tub, playing badminton and horseshoes, the campfire, and the picnic table under the oak tree. We loved connecting with nature and hearing the sounds of wildlife as we fell asleep.

We kayaked down the lake to the owner's other cottage and it was another beautiful spot on the lake with beautiful decks to relax on and the lower deck perfect to jump off right into the deep water. We're going to try to squeeze in a 2-day vacation there before school starts!

A delightful get away place!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this cottage because it seemed an ideal location right on the water, yet also an easy driving distance to places we knew we'd want to explore. We were not disappointed! The cottage itself was well maintained and fully equipped. Owner Bobby, along with his staff, were very helpful in keeping us informed about everything we needed to know--from arrival details to answering questions that came up. Our stay couldn't have been better! My daughter, who loves the water, spent lots of time swimming in the pond, and our dog had the best time paddling and retrieving sticks. In this serene setting, we found ourselves feeling relaxed and away from it all. It was fun watching all the ducks that swam by, the fishing boats, and, at night, the moon reflecting on the water. The cottage is close to all kinds of nearby places--Foxwoods for entertainment and the town of Mystic for a wonderful assortment of restaurants and shops.

We would definitely return here!

Wonderful stay, beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing week at the cottage. Bob and Karen were fantastic and went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful time. You cannot find more attentive and caring people to rent from. We unfortunately spent most of our time at Foxwoods (were here for a dance Nationals event for my daughter). The time we were at the lake was amazing, the kids loved the kayaking, the fish, playing badminton and just being kids on hot summer days. Everything we could have needed was there to ensure we all had a great vacation. The cottage is older but it simply adds to the charm and everything was in working order. I highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking in the area. I have been using VRBO for many years and this was my most pleasant experience yet. I don't see myself getting back to the area anytime soon but if I did I would certainly contact Bob and be staying here again.
