Lovely weekend on the lake
We were a group of college friends in town for a wedding at Glastonbury Hills Country Club. The house was convenient to the venue, grocery stores, pharmacies and anything else you’d need. The house was clean and comfortable and the lake was beautiful! We had a great time all around.
Just what we were looking for
We had a lovely stay at the Lake Pocotopaug house. We were looking for something quiet and relaxing- not touristy. The lake is beautiful with very little traffic. Unfortunately the water trampoline is no longer there - due to a leak. But Patrick rented a water slide for the kids for two days which worked out well. There were also no floats- but we were able to buy some locally, and the paddle boat has seen better days (quite the starboard tilt) and far more difficult to peddle than previous ones we used.
Regardless, the house is well kept with plenty of room. The beds were comfortable. The linens clean, and the AC worked well. Patrick was quick to respond to messages and accommodating. I would certainly consider staying again.
Great place for families with young children
Our extended family group of 6 adults and 4 children loved our week on Lake Pocotopaug. There was a crib, high chair, and even a baby monitor for the youngest child. Plenty of life jackets in various sizes. We didn't even use the games in the closet because we were so focused on outside activities. The proximity to Air Line Trail is great for biking and running. The outside shower works great and so does the jacuzzi tub. We chose to ignore the fact that the health department had closed the public beach because of high levels of blue-green algae because we did not see the telltale blobs of green or floating scum in our cove. Call before you come if this is a concern. Patrick is very responsive to messages and offered to substitute a different floating "toy" when the pictured trampoline was not available. Do not come if you are afraid of spiders or acorns falling from the sky. They are a fact of life on the deck. Do not expect luxurious towels and bed linens. Everything is basic, but comfortable. We cooked almost every meal at home with no problems. We even ate fresh walleye, small-mouth bass, and perch caught in the lake, usually just off the dock. There is little to no yard on which to play, but the nearby private beach was great. We took advantage of all the boats provided and felt safe when the kids were swimming in the surprisingly shallow water (with life jackets on, of course). We will definitely consider a return to this place.
House situated right on lake with great views. Patrick was very responsive to questions.
Comfortable home with wonderful views
We totally enjoyed our week at Lake Pocotopaug. The house is shaded by beautiful trees that provided shade for the large water facing deck. Even in very hot weather, there was constantly a nice breeze. The grandchildren loved fishing and swimming right off the dock. A great time was had by all!
Great spot, helpful and responsive owner.
We had a great week, perfect for our two school age kids. Lots of swimming and boating. Very comfortable house steps from the lake. Patrick was helpful and responded right away when we had any questions.
Get away to a charming lakefront home with water views from almost every room in the house in a completely renovated home on Lake Pocotopaug. Sit back and relax on the deck while the kids play in the lake right in front of you. This 4 bedroom house sleeps 10- 12. Upstairs, the master bedroom includes your own private balcony with spectacular water views. Included are 2 kayaks, paddle boat, row boat, fishing poles, and floats. Backyard also has a private dock and outdoor shower.
You can launch a boat or jet ski right next door and also enjoy a quaint, private sandy beach right out your front door.
