Property description

Cute and cozy 5-bedroom lakefront furnished cottage with sunny deck, cottagey furnishings, beautiful sunsets, and your own private boat dock (shared with cottage owner) right out the back door.

This is a sweet little spot that is perfect for families or small groups. Before deciding to buy this house and the one next door, my husband, two daughters, and I rented this house ourselves for two summers. We loved it so much we had to make it our own. We generally keep it available for our friends and family who come to visit us, but for weeks we don't have guests, we open it up to other families like yours.

While the house is not fancy, it is the quintessential lake cottage that has everything you might need. With the entire downstairs dedicated to living space, and the upstairs set up with five cute little bedrooms, and a bathroom with a shower, it's very livable and cozy.

I personally have cooked meals for 12-15 with no trouble in the fully-outfitted 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.

At our cottage you will enjoy dining on your deck while you watch the kids fish and swim off the dock. The cottage is situated on Deer Island, facing the cove, where the lake is most tranquil.

Ideal for families with children as there are five total bedrooms: two bedrooms with queen size bed and three bedrooms with a twin-sized trundle bed in each room. Easily accommodates 10.

There are 2.5 bathrooms. A full bath with tub on the first floor. A NEW full bath with shower on the 2nd floor. And another 1/2 bath downstairs.

The home is also idea for social gatherings or get-togethers of friends and family.

You will have your own dock (shared with the cottage owner) where you can dock a boat if you have one.

In addition to the fun of direct waterfront activities, there is also cable tv, WiFi, golf, fine dining, quaint village antiquing and shopping in Litchfield only a few minutes away by car.

The cottage 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).

PLEASE NOTE:
* Our minimum stay is 1 week (6 nights).
* Our standard weekly rental includes 6 nights and 7 days that begin on a Saturday and conclude on a Friday.
* We require all renters be at least 25-years old.
* We do not allow smoking in the cottage.
