Just like home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wedding in the area and we were looking for a rental home to stay in. It is a beautiful setting and home and the amenities provided are excellent. We slept like babies. It was very clean and comfortable and quiet. We would definitely stay there again if needed. We did not have any issues with anything and I am sure it is because of the professionalism and care of Jim and Sukey.

A perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I got married at the Clubhouse and needed a rental home close to the venue. This house could not have been more perfect! Very cozy, clean and right across from the clubhouse. We took some beautiful photos in front of their lush landscaping and stonework - this home has been lovingly cared for and it shows! Sukey and Jim are two of the nicest people you'll meet and were so hospitable. My guests had an amazing time and the home really made our wedding weekend special. Thanks Sukey and Jim! We will definitely come back for a group weekend sometime in the future!

Could not have been better

  • 5 of 5

My only regret is that we didn't book a longer stay. We where there with my two daughters and another family with one daughter. Everything was right where you expected it to be... EVERYTHING! From all the kitchen & barbecue utensils to beach chairs and cleaning supplies and everything else in between. The location was perfect only a few steps from the beach and docks where I picked everyone one up in the boat.

No issues or problems whatsoever, just fun and relaxation!

Family Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time vacationing on Candlewood Lake, and this house was the perfect venue. We took countless walks across the street to the playground with our 3 year old grandson who enjoyed playing with other children on the well maintained equipment, splashing in the lake, and befriending Daisy, a local duck. We spent time on the back patio and fired up the wood-burning fire pit (and yes, there were the makings for s’mores!). Each morning we shared coffee on yet another patio overlooking the lake while planning the day’s many activities. We ended each evening outside sharing stories under a wonderland light strings surrounding the gardens. Sukey and Jim provide for every need within their welcoming home including fresh bed and bath linens, and any kitchen gadget you could possibly need. We’ll be back again next year!

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a family wedding on Candlewood Lake and this house was perfect for our stay. Everything we needed to do was within easy driving distance. The community is great for walking and beautiful photos of the lake. Great beds with linens provided was a definite plus. Now we have extended family in CT so we'll be back!

Surprise Party

  • 5 of 5

This house makes you feel at home right away. It is perfectly located near the clubhouse, tennis court and basketball court. Sukey and Jim were very welcoming, the communication while I was planning everything along the way was awesome. They answered every question I had and gave great advice on the general area. It is very close to stores as well so if you forgot something it was easy enough to run out. We had a great stay.
