About the Property
5 BR, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 10
This is a sweet little spot that is perfect for families or small groups. Before deciding to buy this house and the one next door, my husband, two daughters, and I rented this house ourselves for two summers. We loved it so much we had to make it our own. We generally keep it available for our friends and family who come to visit us, but for weeks we don't have guests, we open it up to other families like yours.
While the house is not fancy, it is the quintessential lake cottage that has everything you might need. With the entire downstairs dedicated to living space, and the upstairs set up with five cute little bedrooms, and a bathroom with a shower, it's very livable and cozy.
At our cottage you will enjoy dining on your deck while you watch the kids fish and swim off the dock. The cottage is situated on Deer Island, facing the cove, where the lake is most tranquil.

LAYOUT OF SPACE

There are 2.5 bathrooms. A full bath with tub on the first floor. Afull bath with shower on the 2nd floor. And another 1/2 bath downstairs.
The home is also idea for social gatherings or get-togethers of friends and family.
You will have your own dock (shared with the cottage owner where a boat is sometimes stored) where you can also dock a boat if you have one. The dock is also great for lounging and swimming.
In addition to the fun of direct waterfront activities, there is also cable tv, WiFi, golf, fine dining, quaint village antiquing and shopping in Litchfield only a few minutes away by car.
The cottage is only 2 hours from NYC, 20 minutes to wineries and beautiful Connecticut sightseeing.
