About the owner: My husband and I live in New York City, with our two girls. I am the director of a non-profit school for children with disabilities, while my husband is in finance. We are down-to-earth, water-loving, lake-adoring people who enjoy gatherings with good food and great friends. We love to entertain, cook big meals, and share our space with others. My husband is also a professional blues guitarist (though he keeps his day job to pay the bills) who regularly plays in the Village.
Why the Owner Chose Morris, CT, USA:
My husband and I rented this cottage for two years with our two children. It didn't take long for us to get hooked! Not only is the house great, but the lake is beautiful, and the community is the best. We loved the whole experience so much, we bought it and the house next door. We now stay in the house next door on weekends and during much of the summer. We rent out this cottage during most weeks of the summer, and keep it for family visits during a few weeks.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Someday we will move to the lake full-time. We love the low-key lake life. We awake to a fresh cup of tea on the deck, a walk down to the dock, and usually by 9 AM, we've taken our first boat ride and said hello to some of our fellow lake friends. If you have your own boat and like water skiing, you will love Bantam Lake where you'll find some of the country's best skiers. There's a water ski course, which the serious skiers (including my husband) visit in the wee hours of the morning. Our cottage is located on a cove, where the water is most calm and quiet. But in general, the water and the lake is both calm and quiet (especially compared to other lakes that allow motor boats). Even on holiday weekends, the lake is peaceful, but FUN!
