Goshen House Rental Photos and Description

Updated Lake House 4 Bed/3 Bath A/C Wifi + Tennis, Pool, Beach, Gym, Activities

Our home is rented for the 2017 ski season.

Now booking summer 2017 as a seasonal rental from Memorial Day to Labor Day (not available weekly/monthly during summer).

4 Bedroom, 3 full bath.

The house has large decks with seating, a large screen porch, propane grill.

Woodridge Lake is a little known secret, tucked away in Goshen Connecticut - a small, charming town in Litchfield County (5 miles from center of Litchfield).

It's a private (residents only) lake, about 400 acres large. Since it's private, you don't have all the boat traffic and congestion you'd find at nearby lakes. Woodridge Lake is quiet and tranquil, even during busy holiday weekends.

This is an ideal place for a family to spend the summer weeks or weekends away from the city.

The clubhouse is full of great things to do - from Memorial Day to Labor Day there is a large heated swimming pool. There are 8 tennis courts, and clinics and lessons are available for all ages. There is also a fitness center, fitness classes (yoga), basketball court, a beach and a playground.

In summer evenings there are concerts and other social events.

Our house is a short walk to the clubhouse, about 200 yards from the entrance. It's got great privacy all around and yet has easy access to all the amenities of the lake.

There is a large deck with a propane grill, a large screen porch. And another large deck off the master bedroom.

The house has 4 bedrooms. On the main floor there are two twin beds, on the second floor there is a king bedroom (with private bath), two twins in a second bedroom and a queen bed in the third bedroom.

All rooms have separate A/C units to control the temp to your needs.

The house is fully stocked with high end linens, new mattresses, and new towels.

The kitchen has a new appliances - Samsung refrigerator, GE stove and new dishwasher and a nice large breakfast bar.

The great room is perfect for hanging out after a day at the lake, comfortable couches and leather recliners - and a flat screen TV with cable.

House also has wi-fi throughout.

The lower level has a children's play room with a couch, some fun chairs and a flat screen TV & DVD player.

Full laundry room in lower level a well.

Freshly painted interior, April 2016. We maintain this house at a very high standard.

This house would be ideal for a family to enjoy for a summer, or a full year (remember in winter we are only about 6 miles from Mohawk Mountain Ski Area which has great kids ski programs).

There are so many fun things to do in Litchfield County - that is if you ever want to leave the lake itself. The area has events (Litchfield Jazz Festival, Goshen Fair, Litchfield Hills Road Race, etc), wineries (one is right behind the house), hiking, tubing, rafting, antiques, shopping, spas. The area really has something for everyone to enjoy.

About Sarah

We love everything about the community, the lake and Litchfield area. There are so many great things to do and enjoy - year round.

Sarah purchased this house in 2014

Why Sarah chose Litchfield County

This house has it all, a fantastic location near the lake and clubhouse in the summer months - for swimming pool, beach, boating, tennis. Then in the winter we are near Mohawk Ski Area - which makes this a great place to be all seasons.

The house has private setting and the layout is really great for a family - open rooms, plenty of space.

What makes this house unique

Clubhouse access - summer includes access to 4 private beaches around the lake, 8 lane heated pool, 8 tennis courts, basketball court, playground, snack bar, kids programs, social/music event. Fitness classes, fitness center. All within walking distance of the house!

Clean, beautiful, convenient, peaceful, and a wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We are 4 high school friends, now in our 50s, and gathered at this beautiful home for a long weekend. We came from California, Virginia, Utah, and Massachusetts. It was well worth the travel! This home is equipped with everything to make your stay seamless! We cooked in the well-stocked kitchen, we relaxed in front of the beautiful fireplace, while knitting and reminiscing. We enjoyed the roomy eating areas and the gorgeous Fall views! The bedding is top-knotch and the towels are full and fluffy. Sarah, the owner, was warm and welcoming in her email responses, and we so appreciated her quick responses to any questions we had. We enjoyed the wineries and chocolate shop, the knitting stores and the wonderful restaurants. A great place to walk and enjoy the lake view right across the street! When in this area, we would LOVE to stay in this beautiful home again. Thank you so much, Sarah! We are grateful!

Ladies weekend at Woodridge Lake

  • 5 of 5

Six ladies shared a wonderful weekend in Connecticut celebrating a good friends Birthday. The house was wonderful,

very spacious and tastefully decorated. The house was very well appointed throughout and is located in a lovely lake community with a pretty lake and club house. Sarah was very sweet and welcoming. The area has much to offer in restaurants, spas, hiking, wineries etc.

A wonderful time was had by all. I would definitely consider returning to this location and house at a future date.

Our favorite family vacation in years!

  • 5 of 5

This house really has it all. It goes without saying that the location is amazing, so close to all the amenities of the lake. Walk over to play tennis, enjoy the beach, fitness center, pool.

The house has everything you could ever need and is beautifully maintained, probably the most well maintained rental we have ever stayed in.

The owner provides a great guest book with all sorts of fun things to do in the area - restaurants, live music venues, farmers markets, chocolate shop, local dairy, fishing, etc.

We had a wonderful time at this house and look forward to coming back next spring.

Thank you Sarah for sharing your amazing home with us!

What a house! it has everything - and **location**

  • 5 of 5

We were here for the peak of fall foliage, and it was amazing. To start with, the house is beautifully decorated, very clean and has everything you could need. very nice high end linens, towels and every detail you could think of.

The living room was fantastic for a fall evening fire and we snuggled up for some sports on the large TV above the fire. The house has a great layout, a large dining area off the kitchen, huge living room and four generous bedrooms. The bathrooms are updated and fresh. We loved everything about this house. A few days we walked over to the clubhouse to enjoy the fitness center.

We did some local hikes which were amazing as the leaves were changing.

And we had a wonderful special last night dinner at Arethusa al tavolo (not to be missed!).

The leaf peeping drives from town to town can't be beat - don't miss the covered bridge in Cornwall, the hike at Kent falls (and town of Kent), walk around the Litchfield green, hike in White Woods. There is endless fun near this house in the fall.

We will be back!

Really impressed with the quality of this home!!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my boyfriend stayed in this beautiful home a few weekends ago. The home was really impressive. We had a view of the water that I wasn't expecting and the balcony off of the master bedroom both looks out over this wonderful view and also gave us some privacy for suntanning! The bathrooms are spotless - in some cases look brand new, with heated flooring - and the towels and toiletries that Sarah left for us were a really special touch! Towels are all new and fresh. Bedding smelled really yummy..(that matters!) and the kitchen was fresh and clean. The bed was also really comfortable with lots of new pillows. I felt good about everything in the kitchen and the beer in the fridge when we got there!!!! So nice!!! I am excited to come back and will stay in this home again.
