          Manager info

          Year Purchased: 1988

          About: My husband and I started our family in the Boston area. Our three boys spent many weekends and summer vacations at the 'lake house' as we fondly refer to our home away from home. We have taught many a child how to waterski on this lake! Currently we live in Southern California as my husband followed an opportunity he could not pass up. He works for a movie theatre sound system manufacturer and I am an occupational therapy adminstrator at a pediatric clinic.

          Why East Haddam:
          This 'lake house' of ours is our connection to family and friends in New England. We look forward to our time there every summer in August. All of our friends have thoroughly enjoyed their visits to the 'lake house' and refer to it as a beautiful piece of heaven!!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          When you see the view of the serene and pristine lake you will immediately know why we fell in love with this property. The view takes your breath away! With the porch, the wrap around deck, the patio and the dock, the outdoor living spaces are wonderful. The open floor plan allows us to spend a lot of time together enjoying each other's company as well as the view from all rooms. We love the privacy, the fabulous restaurants and the infamous Goodspeed Opera House. Visits to the artistic town of Chester are highlights for us.
