Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My Family lives in Fairfield, Connecticut and we rented homes on Highland Lake in 2001 and 2003 before we purchased our own home there in 2005. We'll gladly answer any questions you may have so feel free to give us a call.

Why the Owner Chose Winsted, Winchester, CT, USA:
Terrific location, we're in the water or on our jet ski from April to October. Skiing at Ski Sundown, New Hartford, CT is 12 minutes away. We enjoy bicycling and long walks around the lake. Great for outdoor fun in the sun. Very comfortable in the summer and while playing, we're even able to get a little work done.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Morning sunrise off the lake. Early morning strolls, kayaking at quiet times on slow speeds (no wake) on Highland Lake (Memorial Day thru Labor Day)
