Charming Country House Overlooking Candlewood Lake, Beach

Bedrooms 3
Property type house


About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms

This warm and cozy country lake house provides a comfortable stay in an attractive, rustic atmosphere with lovely scenic views. Located on a quiet road in a friendly community with easy access to a variety of shops and the quaint, historic town of New Milford. Town offers charming colonial buildings, trendy restaurants and boutiques, a cinema and several convenience stores. Walk to a private, community beach with beautiful views of Candlewood Lake. This house provides a wonderful experience for singles, romantic couple-getaways and family vacations.

The backyard patio with gas barbeque grill overlooking a perennial garden and screened-in porch with lake view are wonderful for warm autumn days and evenings. Use the living room or kitchen fireplace to warm up the colder months.

Two bedrooms with one queen and one double bed upstairs, one twin bedroom with decorative fireplace downstairs. Two full bathrooms and a huge kitchen with skylight and vaulted ceilings overlooks the patio and gardens. The dining room table overlooks the porch and patio and the living room has a fireplace, skylights, television set and stereo system.

Hike the beautiful Appalachian Trail, explore Kent State Park Waterfalls, Mount Tom State Park, Bulls Bridge Falls and White Memorial State Park, and witness the one-of-a-kind New England fall foliage while strolling through nearby towns or driving scenic country roads. Gorgeous apple and pumpkin picking farms and corn mazes in the fall. Covered bridges, historic museums, wineries, flea markets and wildlife sanctuaries are also within easy reach. Venture out to the Berkshires, or stay closer to home and visit Lake Waramug and Bantam Lake.

For the winter months, ski at nearby Mohawk Mountain, or stay local for ice-fishing, snowmobiling and ice-skating on frozen Candlewood Lake.

A wonderful house for beautiful, quiet scenery and cozy relaxation.

Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a fantastic place to live in even in winter! It was beautifully furnished and equipped with literally everything you need. Great view towards the lake from the living room and lots of sunshine at the breakfast table. The owner is very friendly and attentive.

Happy to be repeat customers

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this lovely house, and, again, we greatly enjoyed it. The owner, Cheryl, is excellent to work with, including confirmation of reservations, making arrangements for our arrival, emailing to see if we needed anything during our stay, and timely refund of the damage deposit.

Best Homeaway close to Fairfield County

  • 5 of 5

Cheryl has the absolutely best house in the best location. I would describe it as the ideal blend of tranquility, calm, fun and convenience. She spares no expense in making her guests feel welcome. Her home is meticulous, full of character, user-friendly, organized, beautiful, oozing with charm and totally comfortable. She is a kind host who takes care of her guests while giving them privacy.

Travelers will be thrilled once they open the door to her house. No wonder she is constantly booked. Plan now to stay at her house. You will have the best vacation experience ever.

Litchfield County is a great place to explore especially from this location that Cheryl has been made into the ideal vacation spot.

Beautiful, Quiet, Comfy, Unique Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home overlooking one of the most beautiful lakes I've ever seen. Every morning it was a pleasure to go for a walk and watch the boats on the lake. We were fortunate to visit while the leaves were turning and it was absolutely breath taking. The neighbors were friendly and helpful. The first night we came in after dark and a neighbor stopped to ask if we were lost. I felt very safe in the area.

The home was very clean and well stocked. The bedrooms were nice sized and the beds were extremely comfortable. I have a hard time sleeping in rental homes or hotels for the first couple of nights. I was able to rest from the first night in this house. We LOVED the pool table and had a great time challenging each other in games. The home was very unique in the way it was built. Lots of love and attention to detail in this home. The bathrooms were nice sized and well appointed. Our party of 5 was very comfortable the whole time we were there. There were so many places to just hang out and visit. It was a welcomed retreat.

Cheryl was a pleasure to deal with. She very patiently answered every question I had both before the the trip and while we were there. She was prompt in refunding the damage deposit.

I cannot recommend this property or the owner highly enough. It's a beautiful home in a relaxing setting. Rent here, you will not regret it.

If we are in the area again, this will be the first place I'll check to see if it's available.

The Country House overlooking Candlewood Lake Beach in New Milford is ideal for a large family.

  • 4 of 5

I am quite pleased to recommend the Country House to anyone who wants to visit the New Milford area. We appreciated the many modern appliances, including the 50 inch color TV, with WiFi, access to Netflix, and pool table. The home is nicely decorated and the house can easily accommodate a family of five or six. A great value for a vacation home.
