The cottage feels like you are at a cabin up in Maine. It has a rustic feel and it is on a quiet lake where time seems to have been forgotten. It is literally right on the water, as you can see in the pictures. The waterfront cottage has 2 bedrooms with queen beds. It has a spacious living room with a wood stove. The large screened-in porch is a favorite place for meals overlooking the water. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready, just bring your food. There is a gas grill and two outdoor fire pits which also overlook the water.

2 kayaks and a canoe are provided for your use at no additional charge. We also have horseshoes, a few lawn games and indoor games, internet, a DVD player, and basic TV. If you choose, we have a discounted paddleboard rental for just $20 for your entire stay, and a hot tub rental for $100 or less. (We can not guarantee hot tub availability.) The tub sits over the water and under the stars, or enjoy a campfire with firewood provided with no charge.

The cottage is removed from noise and bustle on the quite, beautiful lake, but it is still just a 10 minute drive from Mystic-- a favorite tourist town, 5 area wineries, the Connecticut Shoreline, and 5 minutes from Foxwoods casino. Take a walk or a bike ride along the coast, through Mystic, or in the woods such as up Lantern Hill. You can also enjoy activities in Westerly, Mystic, and New London such as weekly free outdoor summer concerts or other attractions at MysticCountry.com.

About Molly and Bobby

The picture above is of Bobby and his family back in 1976 being children enjoying the lake. His grandparents bought the cottage back in 1955, and now three generations later the cottage is an ever more special place for us, and we very much enjoy our family's vacation each year at the lake. It means a lot to me to hear from guests about good family time and nice quality time for couples.

What makes this cottage unique

Included in the lakeside house are kayaks, canoe, large Huck Finn style raft to swim off of or to explore the lake and the connecting lake. There are two campfire areas and a propane grill, horseshoes, badmitten in the yard. All are included in the price of the cottage. If you bring your fishing rod, the fishing is great. We also allow you to bring your dog along to enjoy the lake. The cottage is great for family activities and for relaxing meals and sunsets.

Are you kidding me!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Ok where do I begin. Beautiful vista views from several vantage points inside and outside house. Large living spaces INSIDE-OUTSIDE (deck,dock,fire pits two sides of house,yard (all sides),overstuffed sofas everywhere---in both sides of large livingroom equipped with wood stove inside big stone fireplace (wood included as well as kindling, newspaper starter log, matches) that leads to huge screened- in wrap around porch(that has its own four stool bar and food prep area - ARE you kidding me). Two bedrooms, full kitchen (all amenities to include spices, teas, most kitchen appliances), reasonable size bathroom. Hot tub on its own dock (extra fee but worth it), fishing gear, kayaks, decent outdoor furniture. We were pretty happy--stayed an extra night-molly property rep--easy to contact and eager to please. Get this it rained HARD twenty four hours/ we lost power but plenty of candles-stayed extra day--close to casinos-old mystic-not many stores (liquor-small mobile with essentials), but great little Chinese takeout ten minutes away next to pizza place with homemade deserts- left house for only food -SAW NOTHING else - would not change a thing --it's all about the HOUSE.

The cottage was perfect for a short getaway in Mystic. Communications with owner were great and helpful. If we had any questions they were always available to help. We took the canoe out on the lake which was great and relaxing. Overall very nice stay. Thanks.

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay it is very peaceful and rustic. The only negative was not having air conditioning it was very humid and tough to sleep, I believe ceiling fans in the bedrooms would be a great help if air conditioning isn't an opinion. I can say we definitely would go back.
