**Our remaining april dates have been discounted. *We also have a weekly discount for stays 7 nights or more**

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.

2 kayaks and a canoe are provided for your use at no additional charge. We also have horseshoes, a few lawn games and indoor games, internet, a DVD player, and basic TV. If you choose, we have a discounted paddleboard rental for just $20 for your entire stay, and a hot tub rental for $100 or less. (We can not guarantee hot tub availability.) 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. Take a walk or a bike ride along the coast, through Mystic, or in the woods such as up Lantern Hill. You can also enjoy activities in Westerly, Mystic, and New London such as weekly free outdoor summer concerts or other attractions at

About Molly and Bobby

Hi, my name is Molly. My father is Bobby, and we work together to continue improving the cottage and doing our best to ensure that you have a wonderful time here at the lake. My father and I have both grew up spending much time enjoying the cottage and the lake with our family. His parents bought the cottage back in 1955, and now- three generations later- the cottage is an ever more special place for us, and we very much enjoy our family's vacation there each year. Now, we love to share our special place with others, and it means a lot to us to hear from guests about their good times here with family, friends, and loved ones.

Molly and Bobby purchased this cottage in 1955

What makes this cottage unique

Included in the lakeside house are 2 kayaks, 1 canoe, and a large Huck Finn style raft to swim off of or to explore the lake and the connecting lake. There are two campfire areas and a propane grill, horseshoes, badmitten in the yard. All are included in the price of the cottage. If you bring your fishing rod, the fishing is great. We also allow you to bring your dog along to enjoy the lake. The cottage is great for family activities and for relaxing meals and sunsets.

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was everything we hoped it would be! Our weekend was a bit chilly a cloudy. However, we enjoyed using the canoe and kayaks on the lake. Having the hot tub literally on the lake was an amazing and relaxing experience. Molly and Bobby were very responsive and gave us great ideas for things to do around town, including an exhilarating hike up Lantern Hill. The cottage was cozy and rustic, and we loved using the wood burning stove at night. We will definitely return in the future for either a summer or early fall vacation!

Are you kidding me!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Ok where do I begin. Beautiful vista views from several vantage points inside and outside house. Large living spaces INSIDE-OUTSIDE (deck,dock,fire pits two sides of house,yard (all sides),overstuffed sofas everywhere---in both sides of large livingroom equipped with wood stove inside big stone fireplace (wood included as well as kindling, newspaper starter log, matches) that leads to huge screened- in wrap around porch(that has its own four stool bar and food prep area - ARE you kidding me). Two bedrooms, full kitchen (all amenities to include spices, teas, most kitchen appliances), reasonable size bathroom. Hot tub on its own dock (extra fee but worth it), fishing gear, kayaks, decent outdoor furniture. We were pretty happy--stayed an extra night-molly property rep--easy to contact and eager to please. Get this it rained HARD twenty four hours/ we lost power but plenty of candles-stayed extra day--close to casinos-old mystic-not many stores (liquor-small mobile with essentials), but great little Chinese takeout ten minutes away next to pizza place with homemade deserts- left house for only food -SAW NOTHING else - would not change a thing --it's all about the HOUSE.
