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.
Kayaks and a canoe are provided for your use at no additional charge. If you choose, we have a hot tub rental for $100 or less, refundable if tub not in good working order, and a paddleboard rental for just $40, for your entire stay. The tub sits over the water and under the stars, or enjoy a campfire with firewood provided at no charge. Also incuded are horseshoes, internet, DVD player, basic TV, a few lawn games and indoor games, plus some bikes for teenagers.
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.
If dates are full or if you are looking for a second rental nearby for a family and friends, please check out our other cottage on this same lake. The listing is HomeAway #3945127 to see pictures and reviews.
Book early if you need specific dates. We are happy to answer any questions you may have, email us for more information or ask us to call you back. Additional discounts available via various payment methods, and for return guests. Please inquire if interested.

Owner info

About the owner: 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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
