New Milford house description
This warm and cozy country lake house provides a comfortable stay in an attractive, rustic atmosphere with lovely scenic views. Located on a quiet road in a friendly community with easy access to a variety of shops and the quaint, historic town of New Milford. Town offers charming colonial buildings, trendy restaurants and boutiques, a cinema and several convenience stores. Walk to a private, community beach with beautiful views of Candlewood Lake. This house provides a wonderful experience for singles, romantic couple-getaways and family vacations.
The backyard patio with gas barbeque grill overlooking a perennial garden and screened-in porch with lake view are wonderful for warm autumn days and evenings. Use the living room or kitchen fireplace to warm up the colder months.
Two bedrooms with one queen and one double bed upstairs, one twin bedroom with decorative fireplace downstairs. Two full bathrooms and a huge kitchen with skylight and vaulted ceilings overlooks the patio and gardens. The dining room table overlooks the porch and patio and the living room has a fireplace, skylights, television set and stereo system.
Hike the beautiful Appalachian Trail, explore Kent State Park Waterfalls, Mount Tom State Park, Bulls Bridge Falls and White Memorial State Park, and witness the one-of-a-kind New England fall foliage while strolling through nearby towns or driving scenic country roads. Gorgeous apple and pumpkin picking farms and corn mazes in the fall. Covered bridges, historic museums, wineries, flea markets and wildlife sanctuaries are also within easy reach. Venture out to the Berkshires, or stay closer to home and visit Lake Waramug and Bantam Lake.
For the winter months, ski at nearby Mohawk Mountain, or stay local for ice-fishing, snowmobiling and ice-skating on frozen Candlewood Lake.
A wonderful house for beautiful, quiet scenery and cozy relaxation.

Magnificent House by the Lake
Magnificent House by the Lake
When we entered this magnificent house, me, my husband and a friend, we all said: “Heavens! We rented a house and got a home! "In every detail, the owner made us feel welcome, from little notes lying around the house, with guidelines, for example, on how to best use the electrical appliances, to the rooms decorated with delicate pieces of furniture and keepsakes that seemed to be from family or old trips of whom lived there. Each bedroom, each room seems to have a personality, with discrete and elegant artwork. The magnificent stylized, fantasy "cottage”, on the first floor opposite to the pool table is an experience apart. And even in the late fall, we loved to use the balcony on the second floor that overlooks the magnificent lake in front of the house. The kitchen is huge and inviting, inspiring us happy conversations, in family, while a meal is prepared or simply savoring a takeout. In the middle of our stay we hosted a couple of friends of ours. He, an architect; she a Jungian psychologist (the house sleeps six people comfortably). For her and for me who am also an admirer of the psychiatrist, psychologist and Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung, the memory of "The house by the lake" where Dr. Jung used to spend holiday periods especially in his old age, in Zurich, arose immediately. As a significant part of our work can be done remotely, we stayed two months in this heavenly place. We had never stayed outside of Brazil for so long, but homesickness was hardly felt, because of the comfort, convenience and beauty of the place and its surroundings. The helpful and pragmatic attitude of the owner made our stay even more enjoyable, despite ever meeting us personally, respecting our privacy. The three of us strongly recommend renting this house for rest, leisure, study, or work - because, for our part, we did a bit of the four things, very happy with our stay in it!

Just what we needed
Just what we needed
We have family in the area that doesn't have room for us, so we needed a place to stay for a week last fall. We were pleased with the location of the property, and how we had everything we needed while there. Everything was clean and well maintained and the place was as described or better. We had plenty of room for our family (including our family in the area) for meals and spending time. Communication with the owner was very smooth and easy. Will seriously consider renting this house in the future!

Perfect house to host Christmas dinner!
Perfect house to host Christmas dinner!
I grew up in Brookfield and now live in IL. Our family is too large for my mom to host the holidays so we decided to rent a house big enough for everyone. The open layout of this home was ideal for 12 family members to socialize and relax on Christmas day. The kitchen had most of the necessary pots, pans, and dishes needed so I just borrowed extra from mom. The water pressure in the upstairs shower was lacking but the downstairs shower worked great! There were plenty of towels and pillows and I loved the LG washer/dryer. Excellect location, close to grocery store and restaurants. Owner was very accommodating and we would definitely rent this home again! My family was very impressed that we found such great accommodations!
