Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 7 Sleeps
Why Kathryn Sabo chose Colchester
We have owned at Lake Hayward since 2000. We loved raising our children at the lake every summer. Now we have added this rental property right next to our own cottage to share the joys that Lake Hayward has to offer!
What makes this Cottage unique
The property has a very unique 'L' shaped front porch with relaxing views. It also has a huge living room for all to gather in. The added benefit of being in a few minutes walking distance to the beach is great! The association puts on many social functions for children and adults throughout the summer that are so much fun!
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Cozy lake house—close to groceries, Starbucks and other conveniences
Cozy house with room for 4 fit comfortably. Great hot water with good water pressure (this is impt to us)! Close to all sorts of hiking and great family things to do outside!
Confortable, clean, cozy and convenient
A lovely cottage in a lake community with more than enough room over a weekend for a big family or, in our case, 7 adults attending a family memorial event. Our host, Kathy, was responsive throughout and very accommodating with arrival and departure times. We will certainly consider her cottage again next time we are visiting in East Haddam.
Everything was good
Great place , only feed back I would give is there is too many Nick nacks and breakables was always worried about breaking something
Nice and cozy stay
Nice and cozy stay near Lake Hayward. Good for one or two family. Nice backyard to grill and for kids to play. Wouldn't suggest for a big group as there was only one bathroom. There is a nice Sunroom, great for morning tea or just lounging throughout the day. Overall a nice stay for us.
Wonderful Fall weekend
We really enjoyed our short but relaxing stay at this cottage. It was clean, comfortable and well kept. Phil and Kathryn were on hand during our stay and were friendly and welcoming. We loved the front porch and found the beds comfortable. We were here to visit our son, who doesn't get much time off of school, and it was great to relax in the back yard and grill and take walks around the lake. I would've loved to have been able to spend more time and we will definitely look into renting this house again.
A Wonderful Stay
We had a great time staying at the cottage on Lake Hayward. The house was very clean and the perfect place to come back to after a day on the lake.
