Bantam Lake cottage description
Wonderful lakefront fully furnished home with sunny deck, 5 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, beautiful sunsets, and your own private boat dock.

Enjoying dining on your deck while you watch the kids fish and swim off the dock. The lakehouse is situated on Deer Island, facing the cove, where the lake is most tranquil.
Ideal for families with children as there are 5 bedrooms: 2 bedrooms with queen size bed and 3 bedrooms with a twin-sized trundle bed in each room. Easily accommodates 10.
The home is also idea for social gatherings or get-togethers of friends and family.
In addition to the fun of direct waterfront activities, there is also cable tv, golf, fine dining, quaint village antiquing and shopping in Litchfield.
Only 120 minutes to NYC, 20 minutes to wineries and beautiful Connecticut sightseeing. In addition, White Memorial Woods on Bantam Lake (5 minutes away) is a beautiful spot.
I personally have cooked meals for 12-15 with no trouble in the fully-outfitted (if not totally state-of-the-art) kitchen. And we've enjoyed countless BBQs and sunsets off the deck. This place has been truly heaven for me and my family. Perhaps you'd like to create some special memories here as well. Here you will enjoy dining on your deck while you watch the kids fish and swim off the dock. The lakehouse is situated on Deer Island, facing the cove, where the lake is most tranquil.
The house is only 2 hours from NYC, 20 minutes to wineries and beautiful Connecticut sightseeing. In addition, White Memorial Woods on the lake (5 minutes away by car or boat) is a beautiful spot for hiking, canoeing, and kayaking, and Sandy Beach and Morris Town Beach offer a fun place for beach swimming (especially great for children).

ReviewsWrite a review
I have had an intimate knowledge of Deer Island and Bantam Lake for 42 years as my parents used to own this house and the one next to it for a few decades. They moved in the mid 1990s but my love of the place has never waned. This is a beautiful summer cottage owned by an equally beautiful and compassionate family. The amenities at the cabin were perfect. We never needed any more than what was provided. We spent several calm mornings kayaking around the lake and it was nearly impossible to get the kids out of the water at the other times. On a rainy day, we took a great drive through some small CT and MA towns. On the nicer days, there was no reason to leave the cottage or the island. The owners of this property have put a lot of love into this cabin to make it the PERFECT get a away. Great little touches like an ice cream machine made the week a family memory we'll treasure forever!! We're already planning to carve out two weeks next summer!

Wonderful Retreat Weekend
Wonderful Retreat Weekend
The cottage on Bantam Lake was wonderful- beautifully decorated, very roomy, lots of sleeping space and open floor plan. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed.Coco and her family were delightful to deal with and they even brought our group a delicious gift of chocolate. The lake is breathtaking and we enjoyed kayaking and fishing. Very peaceful in the cove. Deer Island is a beautiful spot and we will be back again!

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: My husband and I live in New York City, with our two girls. I am the director of a non-profit school for children with disabilities, while my husband is in finance. We are down-to-earth, water-loving, lake-adoring people who enjoy gatherings with good food and great friends. We love to entertain, cook big meals, and share our space with others. My husband is also a professional blues guitarist (though he keeps his day job to pay the bills) who regularly plays in the Village.
Why the Owner Chose Bantam Lake:
My husband and I rented this cottage for two years with our two children. It didn't take long for us to get hooked! Not only is the house great, but the lake is beautiful, and the community is the best. We loved the whole experience so much, we bought it and the house next door. We now stay in the house next door on weekends and during much of the summer. We rent out this cottage during most weeks of the summer, and keep it for family visits during a few weeks.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Someday we will move to the lake full-time. We love the low-key lake life. We awake to a fresh cup of tea on the deck, a walk down to the dock, and usually by 9 AM, we've taken our first boat ride and said hello to some of our fellow lake friends. If you have your own boat and like water skiing, you will love Bantam Lake where you'll find some of the country's best skiers. There's a water ski course, which the serious skiers (including my husband) visit in the wee hours of the morning. Our cottage is located on a cove, where the water is most calm and quiet. But in general, the water and the lake is both calm and quiet (especially compared to other lakes that allow motor boats). Even on holiday weekends, the lake is peaceful, but FUN!
