The cottage overhangs the edge of the lake with an expansive 20'x24' water level deck that you can swim or kayak from, and a large second story deck which makes you feel like royalty as you view nature and the lake from above. Both decks are ideal for an outside meal, barbecuing, yoga, reading, family time, or just enjoying the serenity of nature and the lake. Our recent remodeling has kept some of the character of this 1933 summer home. The cozy cottage sleeps up to six people, making it perfect for a vacationing couple (or two) or a family. It has a medium size bedroom with a queen size bed, a small bedroom with a full size bed, and another queen size bed in the large downstairs family room. Upstairs there is a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and a living room with large french doors that open onto the upper deck with magnificent views of the lake. On the lower level is the living/recreation room (including a laundry area) which opens onto the water level deck. There are always areas on the deck to be in the shade if needed. There are two small parking spaces that will fit a maximum of two cars.

Kayaks and a canoe are provided for your use at no additional charge. There is also a Huck Finn style raft to sit on or swim from or to untie and float around on. We also have old bikes, internet, DVD player, basic TV, and indoor board games. If you choose, we have a paddleboard rental for $20.

The cottage is removed from noise and bustle, and the quiet and beautiful lake makes it a really fun place to enjoy being part of nature. 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.

About Karen and Bobby

The picture above is of Bobby and his family back in 1976 being children enjoying the lake. His grandparents bought a cottage on the lake 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 each year at the lake. It means a lot to me to hear from guests about good family time and nice quality time for couples.

What makes this cottage unique

This property is perfect for those who want to take in a fantastic lake view. Located right on Long Pond, this cottage boasts a double deck that is perfect for a romantic evening and small gatherings with friends. The upper deck is accessed from large glass french doors right off of the living room. The lower deck accessed from the the family room and has direct access to the lake at lake level, good for swimming and boating.

Relaxing, quiet - exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

We recently got back from the cottage on Long Pond Rd and it was exactly what we were looking for. It was our 10-year anniversary and were looking for some peace and quiet away from a toddler and a busy lifestyle, this was our answer.

Thank you to Bobby and Molly for making our stay fantastic! Can't wait to visit again...

perfect size for the four of us

  • 4 of 5

My 3 girlfriends and I stayed this past Thursday-Sunday and had a blast. Not being your typical "outdoorsy" types" we all had minor freak outs every few minutes our first day on the deck as it is apparently prime caterpillar season and no joke, they were EVERYWHERE. None the less, we survived and still had a great weekend.

This was great for a long weekend with friends! The cottage was amazing with two decks for optimum tanning and grilling and just a quick Uber ride to Mystic. Considering my friend and I had to work remote on Friday, I was a little nervous about having wifi as homeaway/airbnb hosts sometimes advertise as being wifi equipped and then actually aren't. That being said, I was really counting on this working and we had no trouble at all! Speed was great!

We took advantage of all water activities (paddle board, kayaks, and used the dock all day every day)! I would definitely go back.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent a week at Cottage on the Lake relaxing and celebrating our 45 anniversary. The cottage was as advertised. Bobby was very responsive and offered several suggestions for things to do during our stay and recommended several close by hiking trails for our enjoyment. The cottage had all the comforts we needed for a quiet week. The cottage was right on the water with a lovely view that offered a quiet and serene atmosphere which was greatly welcomed. We are from Northern Virginia, just outside of Washington D.C. and we needed the week from the daily hustle and bustle of the D.C. area. Even though there was a TV there, we enjoyed the week without cable TV or a radio. The cottage provided us with a peaceful lake location for our home base that was very convenient for our daily trips including Mystic, Stonington, Groton, New London, and one day we went to Plymouth, MA. The days usually started with our morning coffee sitting lake side reading or planning that day's excursion. A nice place to get away and slow down for awhile.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property is ideal and perfect for a friends getaway. The pond is very clean and very quiet. The house is the right size for a few couples to enjoy their time together. I will definitely be coming back in the summer!

Lovely lake cottage

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at the cottage with my 2 kids and we really enjoyed it! The view over the lake is beautiful and it was absolutely peaceful and quiet. We found everything to be clean and comfortable and the internet worked perfectly. We had a chilly, rainy day during our stay and the heat worked very well, keeping us warm and cozy. The place is also well stocked with games for a rainy day.

It is a very easy drive to Mystic and we had a great dinner out there and visited a wonderful toy store.

Perhaps some of the apolstry and rugs could use a deep cleaning or sprucing up, but overall I highly recommend the cottage as an affordable place to stay for families.

Clean, plenty of room for 2, convenient to dock

  • 4 of 5

1. Biggest drawback was lack of sunlight for the outdoor areas

2. Would have been nice to have more than network TV stations. Not premium channels but at least CNN, CNBC, ESPN
