Very Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little getaway spot and the owners made it very easy. Everything is ready to go so you just have to bring the basics and most everything else is covered. The lake water was clear and calm and we lucked out with some perfect weather. It was a perfect weekend retreat. Highly recommend.

very nice

  • 4 of 5

lovely spot on a lovely lake -

Bit of a stretch to call this cabin suitable for 5 people, especially at the price of $250 per night - we had to spread out our own foam mattress on the kitchen floor for number 5 - luckily we all get along! The internet wasn't working when we arrived, but the hostess was very responsive and after a couple of hours and two conference calls with comcast we got it up and running.

Super cute & clean cottage, close to CT fun spots!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was super clean, well stocked and decorated really cute. Beds were comfy, linens smelled fresh and loved the screened in front porch. It was very close to the casinos, Mystic and other fun spots in CT. The only down side was the swimming area has lots of underwater plants and for me that was a deal breaker for swimming however, if you are looking for a quite getaway spot that is super clean, this is your place. Thank you Sue for a great week!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Cottage is very cute and cozy, everything we were looking for a relaxing get away. Cottage is located right on the lake, you can enjoy boat rides, boat peddling, fishing and swimming. Location is perfect, you can enjoy nature and it's also close to Mystic town where you can go eat in the restaurant or walk around in the town or go to Foxwood casino. The owners were very accommodating, this house has literally everything, kitchen wear, bedding, wood for the fire pit, candles, and etc. I would definitely come back in the future.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home right on lake. One bedroom with one large bed and pullout couch that fits 2 - connected to a screened in porch that has twin bed. Host left home stocked with everything we could have needed. Loved the outdoor space - very nice patio, dock and fire pit area, all with ample seating. Two different grills + lots of yard games and lots of stuff to enjoy the lake with - 2 boats, 1 kayak, 1 canoe and plenty of floats. Would recommend for small group!!

Relaxing getaway at a quaint cabin in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

This cabin feels like a lovingly maintained vintage family getaway. It is decorated with charming country cottage touches and well equipped with everything you need plus some extras like spring drinking water dispenser and logs laid in the fire pit. There are a number of comfortable sitting areas inside and outside to relax, read, eat meals or just hang out together. Everything was clean, well maintained and in good working order. The setting feels like you are really away from it all but in reality it is just an easy 10 minute drive to Mystic Aquarium. Nice to have the option to take advantage of all the fun Mystic sights/activities/restaurants but also have the lake activities right outside your door and a place to cook. Lots of fun just paddling around in the boats and floating around on the floats. This property is especially nice because it is more set off from its neighbors, some of the other cabins on this lake are close by each other. If you are looking for a relaxing, old-fashioned-fun type of getaway (but still with modern conveniences like good wifi, aircon, plenty of hot water for showers, etc) then this homey cabin is for you. We would be happy to stay here again sometime.
