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 games. If you choose, we have a paddleboard rental for only $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 Molly 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.

Molly & Bobbi thank you so much for your hospitality. The cottage was beautiful with a breath taking view of the lake. My family and I had a wonderful Thanksgiving. The cottage has all the amenities you need and is in a great location. We were close to town, restaurants and shopping centers. We are already thinking of coming back in the summer. Thank you!!!

Gorgeous cottage, the location is perfect. Owners are wonderful to rent from. Five stars for sure!

We are originally from the area but moved away. Came back to visit family and friends we had not seen in over 3 years. We celebrated our Christmas/Thanksgiving holiday with our kids and grandkids. The cottage was wonderful, open floorplan allowed us to all be together and comfortable while spending time together. Even though our visit was in November, we utilized both decks. It added a whole extra space to be in. While the views of the pond are absolutely beautiful. Felt so much like home without being home. Bobby and Molly were absolutely great to work with. The cottage is well stocked with amenities. The neighbors were friendly. Just felt like we were home. Will definately stay again on our next trip to New England. Thanks Bobby and Molly!

This cottage is a cozy retreat in a great setting. The owner/manager is very accommodating and quick to respond to questions. We really enjoyed our stay and just wish that we had a little more time to spend . Perhaps next year.
