New Preston cottage description
An immaculate, classic 1940’s lake cottage within walking distance of beautiful Lake Waramaug. Nicely furnished with antiques, comfortable seating and beds. The house has been completely updated with an open floor plan, tiled bath and fully stocked kitchen - right down to the lettuce spinner! But it still retains its authentic lake-house charm with the original golden pine paneling, wood-burning fireplace, cedar shingles, and a front porch where you can relax and watch runners, bicyclists, and classic cars cruise by.
The house is in the town of Warren, only 1.5 hours from New York City, and has the best private town beach on the lake. Lake Waramaug, the second largest in the state, is Connecticut’s only designated Heritage Lake. While there are some motor boats, we do not have anywhere near the boating activity of other lakes. Peace and quiet enjoyment are still possible here. Paddleboats, canoes, and kayaks can be rented at the State Park. Walking trails are right outside the back door with spectacular views from the top of Tanner Hill. Award winning vineyards and terrific restaurants - from casual to formal abound. Visit farm markets, country fairs, art galleries, one-of-a-kind shops, auctions and antiques stores, all within easy commute. Cinemas, day spas and professional theatre are all nearby. The cottage is just minutes from lovely New Preston Village. Also easy drive to music events at Music Mountain (30 minutes); Infinity Hall (45 minutes); and Tanglewood (1 hour). Cultural activities abound throughout Litchfield County and the nearby Berkshires.
Come enjoy one beautiful New England town after another in Litchfield County. Breathe our fresh country air and drink our unpolluted water. Munch on organic berries and fresh herbs from the garden. Or enjoy a glass of wine and meditative ‘decompression’ by the sounds of the backyard water garden. This is sophisticated country living at its low key, gracious best.

We came for three nights and wished it were more. The cottage was just as advertised and in a perfect location. It felt like "home away"! Recommend Oliva's restaurant (in New Preston -- very close), Hopkins Inn (just round the bend, literally) and The Iron Horse (a little further down 202). Also the bakery in New Preston. The owner's were very discreet but there if we needed them, and everything was SO clean! We'll certainly recommend to friends.

Very charming cottage -- exactly as advertised. Jon and Blake are gracious hosts who live in house next to cottage. Enjoyed biking and kayaking at Lake Waramaug and wine tasting at nearby Hopkins Vineyard.

The location was lovely, the owners very hospitable and the accomodations were very comfortable and pristine. Easy walking or bike riding distance to little shops, good dining and the winery. Definitely worth a stay!
