Barkhamsted lodge description

This turn-of-the-century, family, lake lodge is in the township of Barkhamsted, Connecticut. It is in the foothills of the Berkshires, nestled at the northwest bank of Connecticut's clearest lake, West Hill Lake. The owner retained the nostalgic feel of a comfortable antique lake home while updating it with state-of-the-art insulation and central heating. The original fireplace was of course retained as well. The architecture is in the style of Adirondack arts and crafts. Much of the furnishings are of that style as well.

There are four bedrooms each with direct access to a full bathroom. All four bedrooms open onto an interior balcony which overlooks the living room and a bank of windows. Renters have the option of renting a completely separate apartment on the far end of the house. This apartment is otherwise not rented to other guests. The population can still not exceed 12 as we choose to never stress the septic system and jeopardize the cleanest lake in Connecticut. The country kitchen, family room is spacious, as well as the living and dining area and library alcove area.

The old fashioned wrap-around porch overlooks the lake, a large party size dock, boat house, kayak rack, and a small, easy wade in beach. The property is woodsy and natural.
There are plenty of other quaint New England villages nearby as well as woodsy walking trails.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1973

              About the owner: This is my family at a holiday dinner. We have a much longer table now which seats 12 if you sit close.

              Why the Owner Chose Barkhamsted:
              Two of the main reasons we bought this house (37 years ago) was because of the Adirondack architecture and also because of it's close proximity to EVERYTHING!

              The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
              Friendly neighbors, natural setting, crystal clear water and the convenience of stores and theaters are just a few of the reasons I enjoy staying here.
