About the Property
Cozy Cape Cod Cottage - 3BR, 1 Bath, Large Level Yard, W/D - Heat & Air Cond
Want a 'throw back lake living vacation' then our cozy year around cottage is right for you! Eat-in kitchen, electric oven/range, and full size refrigerator. Sorry, no dishwasher or microwave (you could always bring a counter top micro) but we have a tv and cottage is cable ready. There is a washer/dryer in the 1st floor bathroom, plus we have a furnace for those cooler nights and an a/c available just in case.
Private, large level yard for outdoor enjoyment, grilling, yard games or pitch a tent! .
We made changes to best accommodate our guests, and to be flexible on sleeping arrangements. We have double bed in one up bedroom and the other up bedroom has a twin. We have (2) two twins on the first floor bedroom. Pushed together they form a KING sized bed, kept apart (2) twins.
Another new addition, lovely day bed for the family room. Great for relaxing and watching TV or another bedding option!
Walking distance to Resha beach for swimming and a state boat launch is just across the bay; bring your water crafts and enjoy summer fun and/or great trophy lake fishing all year long!
Winchester is located in the northwest corner of Connecticut, the gateway to the Berkshires. Close to antique district, restaurants, sight seeing, hiking, skiing (new Hartford - ski sundown), great shows 15 minutes away in Norfolk -infinity hall.
Great family fun or romantic get away. Our cottage is available year around for nightly, weekend, monthly or seasonal rentals. Built in the 40's it is clean and cozy, fully equipped kitchen (toaster, Farberware coffee pots, dishes, glassware, baking/serving dishes, flatware, etc.) for those who enjoy cooking in. Numerous restaurants just 2 minutes away in town if you prefer dining out or take out.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: My husband and I have two (2) grown sons, and spent many summers at the CT Shoreline, but growing up my best family vacations were going to my Uncle's lake house and I knew someday we would own a place where our children could make family memories and we knew it had to be a lakehouse. When we learned about Highland Lake in 2010 we feel in love with it and knew it was the lake for us and purchased 103 Shore Drive which we have slowly been renovating. Then in 2014 we purchased 127 Shore Drive which we rent to family and friends and now on VRBO for you to enjoy too!
Why the Owner Chose Winsted, Winchester, CT, USA:
Our cozy cottage (127 Shore Drive) has just the right feel for us. It has some updates, and some original features too. We loved the charm of the cape cod style, large lawn for playing childhood favorites like croquet or badminton. Our little cottage has 'creature comforts' like heating and air conditioning yet some of the vintage touches like beadboard and a built-in ironing board like 'grandma use to have!' If you are like us and want a little bit of nostalgia, then this is the place for you. Watch the sun dance across the still water when the sun comes up and drenches the cottage with sunshine! Or relax on the back deck or lawn and enjoy the late afternoon sun as it slowly meets the horizon only to welcome another day at the lake!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Lake views from nearly every window and door! Walking distance to resha beach and easy access to state boat launch. We have a garage! Know that sounds funny, but many lake properties do not. Because we spend a lot of time at the lake ourselves, we have a couple mountain bikes you can ride and a canoe, with life jackets you can use!
