Peaceful cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Tom's cottage in July to get away from the city for some peace and quiet. The cottage was perfect for relaxing on the porch in the comfy chairs and rocking chairs with the great view of the lake and hills. Kitchen had everything we needed. We didn't grill but it seemed to have everything needed if we wanted to. Tom was great and answered every question we had. Was nice meeting you Tom! Lake was great for walking down to the beach as well as canoeing and paddle boarding. We had a great time!

Great cottage. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Not sure what to add that hasn't been stated in previous reviews. The cottage is really nice in every respect, as is the large porch overlooking the countryside and lake. Tom was very easy to communicate with and we enjoyed speaking with him. You can see he really cares about the cottage as well as the guest experience, not skimping on anything. The location is perfect, right next to a charming old inn and winery around the corner. Great area for walking around and exploring. If you're looking for a relaxing Connecticut getaway you'll love this property.
