Charming Year Round Lakefront Cottage

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our log cottage sits on a 15' high Point over-looking beautiful Alexander Lake affording 180 degree PANORAMIC WATER VIEWS.

Cathedral ceilings in both the living room and the kitchen, each with its own magnificent native stone fireplace, add to the beauty of this serene lakefront getaway.

In Winter indulge yourself by sipping a hot cocoa in front of the cozy fireplace reading a great book, or wander down a country lane on a frosty morning. In Summer enjoy swimming, boating and fishing right from your own private dock where you have sun the entire afternoon until sunset. In Autumn view the spectacular Fall foliage right from your dining room as you gaze across the lake at the beautiful changing of the leaves, or take a scenic drive on one of New England's country roads. Year Round enjoy spectacular sunsets.

The cottage has been completely redecorated. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen-size bed and one with a full-size bed, plus a sleeper sofa in the living room. The kitchen is fully equipped.

The 'QUIET CORNER' is considered by many to be New Englands Antiquing Capital. We are 40 minutes to Providence, 45 minutes to Hartford, and 55 minutes to Boston. Mohegan Sun and Foxwood Casinos are 30 minutes away.

Just as beautiful as in the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

After spending 11+ years in hotels in the area when visiting family during the summer, our family spent a week here this past August and felt truly blessed. One is never sure what to expect until one actually sees a property in person and I am here to tell you that it is just as beautiful as in the pictures! We began each morning out on the deck drinking coffee and looking out over the lake and ended our days out on the deck watching the beautiful sunsets. I have to say that we did not want to leave when the week was over. It was truly a sanctuary for us. We are already contacting the owner (who truly is wonderful to work with) in order to plan next year's trip. We are thinking this will be a new tradition for our family.

Great wholesome fun!

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as described. We were treated to a vacation that was relaxing and lots of fun. We spent many afternoons both enjoying the view from the porch and floating on the lake in a variety of boats. Life jackets and noodles provided! The cottage is simply lovely. We immediately felt at home and appreciated all of the amenities.

A great place to be

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I had the opportunity to stay at this cottage for a week this past July. Having stayed at other locations around this lake for over 40 years, this was by far the best experience we have had. The cottage was clean , well appointed and in a fantastic location on the lake! My kids (10 and 8) had a great time. I would recommend this rental to anyone who wants to experience lake living. Hope to return with my family next summer!

CT getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a too short stay in this cozy cabin. Top of the line, all-around-want-for-nothing place to enjoy a fantastic view of the lake, cook a gourmet meal, lounge in front of the stone fireplace, read, bird watch, explore and hike nearby. Although we didn't actually get on or into the lake, we are dreaming about it in a return visit. Every detail is for comfort, convenience and enjoyment. You can feel the love and care that makes this a very special place. Some hikes: Mashamoquet Brook SP, Natchaug State Forest, Mansfield Hollow SP, Bafflin Sanctuary, Airline Trail, James L. Goodwin State Forest.

This would be a great home base to explore Connecticut's quiet corner.

We stayed here with our kids and cousins. Such beautiful accommodations and the lake is great for swimming/ boating/ and relaxing. Make sure you stroll down the road to the local tavern/restaurant for an amazing dinner and drinks. Highly recommend staying at this great lake house!

What a wonderful little getaway on the lake. This cottage has everything you could ever want or need. It was so hard to come back to reality, after such a relaxing beautiful time on the lake. This place is magical will continue to vacation here every year!
