Wonderful oasis - a home
Property surpassed expectations.
Water’s Edge Contemporary (WEC) is a beautiful, family-friendly, well-equipped, open, spacious, and extremely comfortable home. I agree with the comments of the other reviewers. It is "beyond...expectations." We truly enjoyed our stay at this amazing home! WEC is conveniently located to many amenities. We chose this home for our daughter's graduation in New Haven, which was about a 15 minute drive. It was a great place to unwind after the activities of the day. The view of the lake from the living spaces and majority of bedrooms in the home is relaxing and breath-taking. There's enough room to gather together; and, spread out if you like. We'll recommend it to others.
A beautiful well-equipped home with plenty of outdoor space, especially suitable for families with children. Anna is the most gracious, thoughtful and responsive of hostesses. We came for a long weekend to participate in the celebration of our matriarch's 100th birthday and couldn't imagine a better place for our family to spend our time between events.
A fabulous property for vocation or any stay, with lost of space, very clean and well kept, inside and out. Everyone were very comfortable and enjoyed it with zero complaints, which is a rarity. An impressive accommodation, and a pleasant unforgettable family experience. We have already recommended it to others.
Beyond our expectations
Loved the house and the setting! Perfect place for our two families. Plenty of room for us to spread out and the owner was so helpful and quick with her responses to any questions we had. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us!
Great family gathering space!
This is a great space for a family gathering! The location and house space are perfect for a group of 10-12. We enjoyed the well stocked kitchen and multiple decks. The setting on the lake is quiet, private and cozy. We would definitely stay here again.
It is truly a pleasure knowing you enjoyed the property. You were wonderful guests. My sincere thank you.
