Wonderful Bliss Cottage
We had a wonderful and relaxing weekend at Bliss cottage. Everything we needed was provided and exactly as advertised.
Tom has a great place and we are happy he shared the cottage with us.
The lake is fantastic and we hope to return for a longer visit someday.
Thank You Very Much. Thank you for leaving the cottage in such great shape.
Please come back and visit us again.
Parardise on the lake
If we could give more than 5 stars we would. The lake is beautiful and the property is perfect. Tom's hospitality started by having cookies and muffins waiting for us. Including a great jam to spread on them. And dog biscuits for our puppy. There are many places of interest for walking and hiking. There are several quaint Connecticut towns nearby with great restaurants and shops. And a great restaurant right next door to the cottage. Do yourself a favor and visit the falls at the Kent state park. Thanks Tome we will be back next year.
Thank you very much for staying at "Bliss Cottage"
I would great to see you again, perhaps this time you get some fishing in.
We stayed at Tom's cottage for the long holiday weekend and loved every minute of it. Tom is a wonderful host and you can see his years in the hospitality business in every aspect of trip - from providing helpful information on nearby activities and the surrounding area to graciously leaving us some baked goods (and a doggie treat for the dog!).
The location of the cottage is ideal. It is located right across the road from the lake which allowed for wonderful morning porch time looking out at the unencumbered views of the lake and surrounding greenery. The lake access is also a short walk down the road which is perfect for some lakeside reading, a quick dip in the beautiful water or watching the sunset. The cottage is also next door to an inn with delicious food and around the corner from a vineyard which had live music each night. It was great to be able to walk over and enjoy all the festivities without ever getting into the car and even with the events at these neighboring properties, the house itself was quiet and relaxing at all times of the day and night.
The cottage itself is also very well appointed with all of the amenities one could need, including ample cookware, towels, beach chairs and floats. The beds were super comfy and everything was immaculately clean and seamlessly ready for us at check in.
We couldn't recommend this house enough and cannot wait to return. Thanks Tom!!!
Thank you for your awesome review. Makes keeping up with the cottage very rewarding.
I hope to see you both again, plus pooch!
I came up with me and my girlfriend and from the first phone call Tom was excellent from allowing us to check in a little early to letting us check out a few hours late, he was very responsive and accommodating. The house was blissful overlooking the lake and perfectly quaint. The Hopkins inn vineyard and the neighborhood was very warming and nice. We cannot wait to come back!!
Exactly as described, perfect views, peaceful!
