Autumn is a wonderful time to come to the cottage! The lake is surrounded by fall color, and the views of the foliage and their reflections are beautiful from the decks or on kayaks. Take a walk or a bike ride along the shoreline, through Mystic attractions, or in the woods such as up Lantern Hill. You can also visit orchards, wineries, Foxwoods entertainment or shopping, or other attractions at

Our recent remodeling gives the cottage a clean, bright and sunny feel while keeping the character of this 1933 summer home. In the living room we added a whole wall of glass to look out at the beautiful fall colors on the lake. The decks are ideal for an outside meal, barbecuing, yoga, reading, family time, or just enjoying the serenity of nature and the lake. The cottage overhangs the edge of the lake with an expansive 20'x24' water level deck that you can kayak, canoe or swim from, and a large second story deck which makes you feel like royalty as you view nature and the lake from above.The cozy cottage is 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 two 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 games. If you choose, we have a paddleboard rental for just $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. There is also a small, organic "Earth Friendly Farm" that sells vegetables at the beginning of your street.

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.

Peaceful retreat

  • 4 of 5

Quiet spot directly on the water. Cottage is semi-rustic, but nicely appointed with furniture and kitchen supplies. If you are looking for a place to escape for a few days and paddle around in kayaks, read, and relax, this is a great option. It's close to Foxwoods and downtown Mystic - both fun places to visit. Responsiveness from the owners was great.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family absolutely loved everything about this cottage. It was just what we needed. The double deck right on the water provided so much peace. The cottage was clean with many amnenities. Bobby,Karen and Molly, the owners, could not have been any easier to deal with or more pleasant. If you are looking for a place to regroup with your family,kayak,fish and rejuvenate... well this is the place . Book a week,just don't take the one I want !!! Hahaha 😊

Great lakehouse retreat

  • 4 of 5

We just had a long weekend stay here with a group of 3 couples and had a blast. The lake is beautiful with clean water and the cottage is wonderful. Three full/queen beds, upstairs and downstairs seating, an upper and lower deck (both with bbq's), and two kayaks and a canoe. The wifi was great, the owners were very communicative and helpful, and the cottage was only about a 15 minute drive to Mystic where we ventured twice to pick up food. We saw many birds and even a muskrat in the mornings. It was such a relaxing and peaceful weekend. My only FYIs would be that linens are not included in the rental (owners were really helpful about working with us through that), and that there are two floating docks outside of the lower deck, but no stairs or gradual entrance, so it can be challenging to get in (and more so) out of the water, especially for kids or older people. Other than that I'd definitely recommend and hope to visit again!

This was our second time here, a comfortable, well furnished cottage on a quiet, beautiful pond. So restful! I loved hearing the crowing rooster when I took our dog out first thing in the morning and seeing geese or ducks marching in formation down to the water. The town of Mystic is close by for shopping/places to eat or, if you choose to stay in, you can grill on the deck, which we did a lot, and also take advantage of the well stocked downstairs recreation room, which includes a TV and very comfortable chairs. Bobby and Molly made sure everything was in order at the cottage and we look forward to yet another visit sometime.

Wonderful stay at the Cottage on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Our four day, three night stay at Bobby's cottage on the lake was amazing. We arrived an hour early as he was still cleaning everything, but he was kind enough to allow us to park the car and relax on the deck until everything was ready.

All of the amenities, including kayaks, canoes, board games and washer + dryer were included as listed. The property was well maintained and clean. They were nice enough to leave enough cleaning supplies, such as paper towels, garbage bags and soap as well.

The home is only a 10 minute drive to Mystic, which provides a peaceful and quiet place to spend the weekend at. Our family spent the weekend using Bobby's kayaks on the lake, and met some friendly neighbors nearby. Would definitely recommend staying here and hope to be back sometime next year!
