Owner info

About the owner: The French family has been a part of Bantam Lake and Morris for decades and truly love the area. The home is a family operation and the owners are close by for any questions, concerns, or needs. They have an extensive knowledge of the area and all it has to offer, including dining recommendations, activities for children and/or adults, and surrounding towns.

Why the Owner Chose Morris, CT, USA:
This home was built by the owners in a small community of 6 homes, including theirs, so that they can be close by for any needs, but offer the guests privacy while renting. The house is conveniently located close to the lake, shopping, and restaurants. It offers an easy commute to several surrounding towns that offer so much history, art, entertainment, and fun for all ages.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Many guests love the unique and cozy front porch with rocking chairs as a quiet place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea in the morning, or read the paper. There is a great bench seat swing in the back yard with a patio, seating and barbeque. This inside offers split sleeping arrangements for privacy when traveling with guests, or a separate area for kids. The house is cozy in the winter after a day of skiing or hiking in the woods, and cool and breezy in the summer after enjoying a day out adventuring in White Memorial or relaxing at Sandy Beach.
