  • Great Weekend

    "This is the second time we stayed here. It is a wonderful home with quiet surroundings. The back deck is perfect for coffee in the morning or wine in the evening. There are two kayaks to enjoy from he back dock. We have already booked for a week next year. The Owner is great to deal with and very helpful. We highly recommend."

  • Pure Perfection

    "Our Point of View is nothing short of perfection! My family had a wonderful week at this beautiful property. The house was everything advertised and more. Our yellow lab Roscoe had a terrific time swimming in the lake and chasing tennis balls. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub (morning, noon and night), pool table, ping pong, big screen tv's for family movie nights; the list goes on and on. But, most importantly the view is why I chose this property on SML. We traveled around the whole lake on a cruise and i don't think you have a better view from anywhere on this lake than the one from this home. Truly a special time and we will at some point be back during the summer to enjoy all the water activities this lake would have to offer. We also had a nice time meeting the neighbors Julie, Glenn and the dog Tucker who had a great time playing with Roscoe while we visited. I travel so much for work and play and this is by far one of the best properties thus far. Thank you so much for allowing us this time on SML in your beautiful home, unforgettable! Can't end without saying enough about the management staff, they answered every question and handled every need (even when I indicated it wouldn't be necessary); above and beyond service, everything was first class! Thank you!"

  • Peaceful Lovers Cottage

    "One of the best places I have ever stayed! This place was clean and had everything we needed! A nice walk down to the beach but a really tough uphill battle on the way back so wear good shoes. We used the fireplace during the rainy Halloween night along with a glass of champagne it was perfect! The master bed was one of the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. Great menu box was available and it was really close to town! It was hard for us to get up and do anything cause the place just felt like home! Thank you Don and Sharon for opening up this place to us! We will be back!!"

Connecticut Travel Tips

Visitors to Connecticut Vacation Rentals

Connecticut is traditionally one of the more affluent states in America. Much of the nation’s pioneer history took place here and there are many historical sites. Connecticut has a wide range of attractions so visitors will almost certainly find something of interest to see and do. It is a state that is scenically very beautiful. Many artists and photographers travel in the summer and fall seasons to capture the vibrant colors. Those who enjoy exploring the back roads and visiting historic towns and villages will find many places to visit in Connecticut. Old wooden covered bridges make superb photo subjects. The many museums provide some insight into the traditions of the state. Connecticut is a popular ski destination and there are many top-quality ski resorts in the mountains. It is close enough to the cities to provide a weekend ski break for busy corporate executives. During the ski season, many families enjoy an extended ski vacation in Connecticut. Because of its scenic landscapes, Connecticut is a popular wedding and honeymoon destination.

Seasons to Visit Connecticut Lake Houses

Winter, spring, summer or fall -- the beauty of Connecticut’s landscapes never fades. Instead, they simply get transformed into a myriad of different and vibrant colors. During the winter months, the ski slopes are the main attraction and over weekends the resorts and towns become a hive of activity. During the summer months, there is a whole range of activities to enjoy. Between the hiking and mountain biking trails, country markets, antique shops, museums and back roads, there is something for every type of visitor to enjoy. The fall foliage each year brings a vibrant display of color to the landscapes. As the leaves turn all rusty hues, they create picture perfect moments. In the spring, once the snows have melted, the forests and valleys come alive with wildflowers and vibrant green hues. Connecticut is an all-season destination.

Getting to Connecticut Cottages

Connecticut is a relatively small state located on the east coast. It forms part of New England and is easily accessible from most major eastern cities including New York City, Boston and Washington DC. While the state does not have an international airport, its proximity to the major cities makes that negligible. JFK, and Newark and Boston Logan Airports all have regular daily commercial flights with most major cities in North America and Europe. From there, you can either hire a car to travel up to Connecticut or you can make use of the extensive rail system. Hartford Regional Airport is the largest major airport within Connecticut. It hosts regular commercial flights on domestic carriers as well as private charter planes. Most people enjoy driving up to Connecticut because that way they can enjoy the beautiful countryside and scenery. Traveling by train is a convenient alternative as you do not have to hassle with traffic getting out of the cities.
