      Other Amenities

          • Think 1920s lake cottage with big living room (30'x35') and front porch (12'x36') overlooking the lake. Lake Wononscopomuc restricts motor boats to 10 hp or less; therefore no water skiing and no loud boats. Lake access is either via a short stair-case and dock or a longer staircase and a small beach. The lake is the deepest in CT and always cool. A woodstove in the living room and a fire-place in the kitchen can cope with weather in the 30s and 40s. Recreational activities include golf, tennis and hiking --- all within 300 yards --- and water sports. You are welcome to our kayak, Sunfish, 15' Hobie Cat and 65 year old canoe. The Interlaken Inn is about 200 yards away and offers a restaurant, bar and escape for adults. Groceries, clothing store, book store, movie theater, etc. are 3 miles away in Millerton, NY. Pets and children are welcome with the normal, 'You break it; you bought it!' rule....moreless
