This charming 3 bedroom cottage on Tinker Hill Road on Lake Wauramaug, minutes from New Preston, Ct. is perfect for viewing Fall foliage! Additional sleeping space totals room for family as well as guests. Screened in porch with cozy seating area, and a large picture window in the living room overlooks the lake. New stone steps leading down from house to lake, and new large stone patio off screened in porch with fire pit.

The large upstairs bathroom contains small load washer and dryer. Cottage has cable, wifi, beautiful stone fireplace, and is fully air conditioned.
*The house is set back from the street and is accessible by a lighted staircase leading down from the parking area. Not suitable for those with mobility difficulties. Lake is located across the street in the back of the house, and is also accessible by stone steps leading down to the road.
Beautiful autumn getaway location, the cottage is a picture perfect place to bike or run---the lake is eight miles around and is designated as a scenic route on almost its entirety. Private lakefront beach area 200 ft. long. Private, full-size dock can accommodate two 20ft. boats. Two additional docks to swim between or are perfect for sunbathing. Full use of private kayak or canoe on the lake, mandatory life jackets provided.
For hikers the choices are numerous. There is the beautiful bicycling route on the Housatonic Covered Bridge Trail, the Bull Bridge Road which joins the Appalachian Trail which is 20 minutes away in nearby Kent, and Kent Falls State Park on Route 7 with its spectacular waterfall. In the fall Lake Wauramaug becomes a beautiful back drop to the changing of the leaves.
There are many top rated restaurants nearby including The Community Table (10 minutes down the road on Route 202), The West Grill in Litchfield (a 15 minute drive), and The Hopkins Inn (opposite the house) on the lake with spectacular views and its own winery. In addition there is Olivia right down the road, which has delicious Italian food and wine.
As for shopping there are many places to head. New Preston is just two minutes from the house, and although it has only six or seven shops they are all intriguing. Woodbury--15 minutes from the house-- is famous for its antiques. Litchfield, just down the road on Route 202, is a kind of preppy heaven, and Kent has more than its share of galleries. All of them are close to the house. Northwest Ct. is beautiful whichever direction you head.
