Amston is a small private lake community nestled within the town of Hebron. The lake borders both Hebron and Lebanon. Our property is on the Hebron side. It is off of Route 85 (Church St.), an easy 15 minute drive from Route 2 Exit 13. The area has many scenic areas to enjoy in any season. This area of the state is rural enough to feel like you left the crowds behind yet suburban enough to have the convenience of drugstores, gas stations, grocers and banks at hand.
Many of our past renters have used our location to launch day trips to the Connecticut shoreline, the Connecticut River valley, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New York. Others just prefer to relax and watch kayaks glide by. If a hike in the woods and a picnic lunch is your idea of a perfect afternoon, there are many great spots to pick from.
Whatever we can do to make your visit memorable, please let us know.
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: For more than ten years we enjoyed this cottage as a vacation spot for our extended family. Adults and kids alike thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful lake. Although we only live 30 minutes away, by 2012 we found we were using it less as our family aged or moved away. In 2013 we decided to convert it to rental property and let others enjoy the little slice of heaven we call Connors Cove. This is our first year listing with VRBO. Our guest book is filled with more then 10 years of terrific memories from family, friends and past renters.
Why the Owner Chose Amston, Hebron, CT, USA:
We chose Amston Lake because of its quiet beauty and its proximity to our home. The cottage is conveniently located yet just far enough away from the noise of everyday living. The property offers year round comfort. It is a family friendly place where neighbors are neighborly but respectful of privacy. Many of the homes/cottages are passed down from generation to generation. The lake is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors who is very conscientious about maintaining the roads, beaches and the lake water quality. The lake is stocked and even novices manage to catch a fish or two. Please visit www.Amstonlake.org for more info on this little known lake.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Beautifully serene lake where morning coffee and evening cocktails are not interrupted by motors. While kayaking and fishing you might just see a pair of Bald eagles or a family of muskrats. There are plenty of interesting places to explore within a 30-60 minute drive of Amston, including two casinos, Pequot Museum, Mystic Seaport and Aquarium, Wadsworth Athanaeum, Mark Twain House, CT Science Center, Gillette Castle, and Goodspeed Opera House. Closer to home will find many local flea and farmers markets, farm tours, antique stores, American Revolution historic sites and several wineries. In Marlboro, Hebron and Colchester you will find a variety of restaurants, grocers, and a movie theater. There are trails to hike and bike and spring and fall are beautiful times to enjoy this part of the state.
