This spring-fed lake is 54 acres and has a sandy bottom with gently sloping lakefront for swimming, wading, playing and boating. Very large shady lawn for games. Enjoy the gazebo with screening.

Lay in the HAMMOCK underneath shade trees overlooking the lake. Enjoy the outdoor fire pit for CAMPFIRES in the evening. HIGH SPEED WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS and FREE US Long Distance Phone calls.

Located in historic Ashford, Connecticut which is halfway between New York and Boston -- a truly New England Experience. Easy commute to Hartford, Boston, NY or University of Connecticut in Storrs, Mansfield, CT. Just 1.2 miles off I-84, it's a breeze to find, not a long drive.

Ashford is adjacent to Storrs, Mansfield, Putnam, Pomfret and Woodstock. It is one of 35 small New England towns located with in the northeastern area of Connecticut which is known as "The Quiet Corner." The rural character of the area is defined by the several river systems and the rolling hills that surround them. The area has historic sites, town greens, orchards, maple sugar houses, museums, antique shops and local diners and restaurants.

** Drive Scenic Route 169, one of the first highways with the designation in the US.

** Visit Putnam, the antique capital of New England, with over 300 antique shops and marketplaces on every street. Woodstock has lovely gift shops, gardening centers and coffee houses. Pomfret's General Stores take you back to the 1800's.

After touring the small towns and browsing antique shops come home to Lake Chaffee Getaway to relax on the deck and swim in the cool water of Lake Chaffee.
