  • Heaven

    "There are few places left in the world to experience a lakefront cottage location so consistently beautiful, from year to year, for as long as I have been familiar with Lake Chaffee - dating back to 1995. This cottage is in keeping with the serenity and natural beauty of its surroundings, and the owners have done a superb job of providing every comfort, yet still allowing for casual and cordial gatherings. A lovely place to recharge the spirit and revisit peaceful, reflective moments."

  • Unexpected comfort.

    "I'm used to vacation rental properties being filled with old wicker furniture and a tv from the mid-1990s, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that this home was anything but typical. Warm and inviting with comfortable beds and nice linens. The kitchen cupboard contained MATCHING PLATES AND GLASSES. Seriously - that's a huge plus! The home has clearly been remodeled in the past few years and is very well cared for. Everything we needed was easily accessible, and the communication throughout the reservation process was prompt and thorough. Honestly can't say enough about how happy I am with the whole experience. Hope to be back in the future."

  • Exceeded all expectations... which were high!

    "Wonderful views of the Bay and lighthouse especially from the balcony of the master bedroom of this beachside survivor of the 1938 hurricane. The lovely accommodation is family traditional, well appointed and generous (6+ bedrooms). It absorbed our British daughters' wedding party of 10 happily with plenty of escape room. The attentive owners fixed any challenges and the breakfasts at Doreen's 'Broken Yolk' diner were humungous and memorable. Highly recommended in every way. White sands for the kids. Only wished we could have stayed longer."

  • Charming, relaxing, but limited beach amenities

    "We just spent 16 nights in this charming cottage. The photos and descriptions in the HomeAway/VRBO listing are accurate, and the owners have furnished the place very nicely. The patio is especially nice, for morning coffee and evening outdoor meals (with fresh herbs available in pots). The kitchen is very well stocked with pots, pans and everything you could possible need for cooking. The shed has lots of beach-related supplies. The WiFi is unusually fast, with download speeds of 27 Mbps. The neighborhood is great for walking and folks are friendly. There are a few negatives, however. Be aware that the cottage is in the Cedar Crest Association, not the Chapman Beach Association. You only have access to the Cedar Crest beach, which is approximately 35 steps wide and 9 steps deep, at mid-tide; in other words, it’s a very small beach space. We ended up going to the Hammonasset State Park beach, which is 12 miles away. We have an annual pass to the park, but if you don’t have the pass, it costs $9/day if you are a CT resident and $15/day if a non-resident ($13/$22 on weekends). Also, there is no gas grill, just the charcoal Weber version and the television is not HD and is pretty much basic cable, which is unusual for a rental at this price level. Overall, we had a fun and relaxing experience and the owners were easy to work with."
