Property description

Enjoy classic New England weekends and holidays year-round on Lake Waramaug’s Gold Coast. Waramaug is a Connecticut Heritage Lake, and was pictured in the book, “1000 Places to See Before You Die”.
The cottage is located in a private setting with easy access to everything this pristine lake, and the surrounding Litchfield Hills have to offer. Beautifully furnished with a mixture of comfortable Mitchell Gold furniture and country antiques, the house boasts two working fireplaces, a private deck overlooking wooded areas & picnic garden, and a stone terrace overlooking a lawn, and landscaped plantings.
The living room has a cathedral ceiling, a paneled fireplace, built-in storage and bookcases, a flat-screen TV, and comfortable seating. The open kitchen is convenient to both indoor and outdoor dining areas. The private Master Bedroom Suite has French doors opening to the stone terrace, as well as a fireplace, dual closets and storage space, and an adjoining bathroom with a tiled shower and antique marble sink. The second bedroom is furnished with twin beds and has access to a large bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and shower. There is also an open office/work area with internet access, where one can set-up a laptop and printer to work, study or play. Air-conditioning units are provided and the house has wide-board pine floors throughout.
The Lake House tenants have access to the waterfront and dock and the use of a tandem kayak and other amenities. The charming New Preston village is a short bike ride away with shops and restaurants specializing in locally grown produce. And, the newly expanded Hopkins Winery is a short walk away and a great choice for a late afternoon wine tasting or snack!
Annual events on the lake include July 4th fireworks, college and prep school crew regattas, triathlons, and numerous road and bike races.
Within a short walk are two public beaches and playgrounds, canoe and kayak rentals, walking trails, a winery and a restaurant overlooking the lake.
A short 15-mile drive will lead to Stony-Brook, a lovely nine-hole public golf course, or in the winter, to Mohawk Mountain, for a choice of 25 ski trails. A little longer ride will provide skiing at Butternut or Catamount and golfing at numerous public 18-hole courses.
