Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: The owners grew up in the Connecticut area, enjoy travel, skiing, watersports, and are currently living internationally, but expect to return to this property full time, someday. Frequent users of VRBO for vacation rentals.

Why the Owner Chose Goshen, CT, USA:
Knowing this lake well, when we became aware that this property was available we contracted for it even before being able to see it in person. It is the oldest of very few houses built on this lake.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This lake has only ten houses on it. The shoreline on the opposite side is unoccupied and is protected from development by a historic boy scout camp and woodlands. One of few places in the world that it gets dark enough to really enjoy the stars.
