Why the Owner Chose Lyme, CT, USA:
Lyme, Connecticut is known for it's unspoiled rural beauty. Uncas Lake is nestled in thousands of acres of state forest and Lyme conservation land. The access driveway to the cottage is a 3/4 mile long private gravel lane. People often comment that they feel like they are on a small undeveloped lake in the middle of Maine, even though they are just 10 min. from I-95. You can't find a more centrally located, pleasant, private, tranquil, place to relax and/or explore the Connecticut River valley, Long Island Sound, and the many attractions between New York City and Boston.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You will return home filled with wonderful memories of exploring New England, sunbathing on the dock, boating and swimming in the crystal clean waters of Uncas Lake, and candlelight dinners on the screened porch with friends and family.
