Nestled in an historic community of lake properties, this 1400 sqft, two-story contemporary home is artfully appointed by the designer-owner with many unique features and amenities. A spacious, relaxing, get-away for 2 people (sorry, no children or pets) just minutes to the busy tourist spots. Our full-featured, newly built house has LR-DR-Kitchen-Bath & 14'X24' deck on 1st floor facing the lake. Sensational 500 sqft Master Suite w/16-ft ceiling, home office & private balcony on 2nd floor. Lake swimming access and boat launch is 150 ft. away. Experience the programmable massage lounger; get creative drawing on the architect's drafting table; cook in the well-appointed gourmet kitchen w/all cookware and utensils. Or, just enjoy the 'living-in-a-tree-house feeling' on the deck or gazing through the wall of windows on both floors. You won't want to leave, but there is lots to enjoy within a short drive: Foxwoods & Mohegan Casinos, CT and RI beaches, quaint New England towns, seasonal festivals, great restaurants, museums & attractions. Holiday weekends may require longer stay times (i.e. Friday-Monday/Tuesday). Weekly discounts are available some weeks throughout the season. Welcome to the 'TreeHouse'!

Local Area Sites and Attractions: North Stonington is a rural community with rolling hills, farms, and an 'Old New England' feeling. Within minutes you can be enjoying Buttonwood Farms Ice Creamery - a very popular spot during the spring, summer and fall months with incredible freshly made ice cream. An adjacent farm usually has an awe-inspiring Sunflower crop that draws hundreds of photographers every year, and a Corn Maze that opens late summer/early too.
