Enjoyed last week of July at this property on Bantam Lake. Had a group of 8, including a 10 year old and our grandson--18 months. With this property, everything is provided--sheets, towels, detergents, cleaning supplies, etc. which means less to pack. Setting on West side of the lake is ideal; you get shade on the beach in the afternoon. The beach is ideal for toddlers; and the gradient into the water is very gradual. We brought a 14 foot boat, with a small outboard, and had no problem beaching it. Did a lot of kayaking, which was fun.

One minor shortcoming of the house was it didn't have a dock. A mooring is available.

The house is conveniently located, with a lot to do in the area. Only 2 miles to the Bantam Market--they have everything!--and 5-6 miles from Litchfield.

Fishing was slow during our week, as temperatures were in the mid 90's, and the water pretty warm. Kitchen is well stocked, and roomy. Cooked out every night on a large grille---worked well, however it appears to be rusting out. Had a great time and plan to return next year.

Owner's Response: We didn't know that the grill was rusting out. Sadly its only 2 years old - but we will replace it.

Perfect family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for Memorial Day weekend with our 3 young children and our friends brought their 3 young children, and we had a wonderful time! The house is spacious enough to easily accommodate a crowd without feeling crowded, but feels very cozy at the same time. The space is laid out nicely to allow for simultaneous different activities. The outdoor space is amazing - the small lake beach is perfect for toddlers and young children, and the 2 kayaks are great for older kids and adults, and there is a swing set and grassy outdoor space for badmitton and soccer out front. There is a gas grill and deck for outdoor eating, which was so nice. The town is cute, great ice cream shops. And, the owner is wonderful - so nice and accommodating, very responsible and communicates well, and she lives close by but was not intrusive. We had a wonderful long weekend stay and we are hoping to come back again in the future!

Great place for a family with young children.

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year stay with a total of 4 adults and 2 children under the age of eight. It is a perfect beach with long gentle sloping sand into the water for the kids. Enough space for grandparents, parents and children to enjoy each other or relax separately. Property description is exactly as stated and owners live near and were very responsive to any needs that we had. Plan to be back next summer.

This house is on beautiful lake. It has a nice little beach front for BBQing and sitting around a fire. The house is very clean and up to date. I highly recommend this property.

Picture Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house is as beautiful as the pictures show. Very modern and spacious, right on the water with great views!

We stayed with other families and there was PLENTY of room for all of us. We brought a boat (the owners provide a mouring if needed) but with beach being all sand and so close to the cove we were able to beach it without worrying.

It's a nice quiet neighborhood and comes with use of a playscape for the kids. Full kitchen that we enjoyed for EVERY meal, beach toys for the kids, very nice bedrooms, etc. etc. etc.

The owners were very nice and accommodating. We look forward to being able to stay here again.
