About Ann LaCroix or Bill Closs
My Grandparents built this family vacation home in 1946 and it has been in our family ever since. Our family grew up here as children, and it has changed very little. This is our home for part of the year, and is not your typical income-rental property. We ask that you treat it as carefully as you would your own home. We pride ourselves on keeping the house and property well maintained and in excellent condition. Our HOA association keeps close tabs on renters and guests at this property. NOISE IS AN ISSUE in this very quiet environment. If you are looking for a place to party, to celebrate with a large group, listen to loud music, do not apply. This is a nature retreat to get away from our hectic world, that’s why we like to spend time here. We have a care taker, his name is Robert. He is authorized to check on you and to question your presence on the property. When you fill out our rental contract you will be asked for the names and auto license plates of all guests. MAX GUESTS on the property is 10, DAY and NIGHT. Car tags for visitors will be found inside the cottage on the bulletin board to use for all vehicles to identify your car as a visitor during your stay. Please return the car tags to the bulletin board when you depart.

Why Ann LaCroix or Bill Closs chose Hartland
If you rent from us, you will not be in a typical vacation rental. This is our summer home where we go to relax and spend quality time in nature with family and friends. This property has been in our family for over 70 years.
What makes this Cottage unique
The Hartland Lake Association (HPC) was formed in 1929, and most buildings were completed in the 1940's. A limit of 35 homes was set then and still applies. The Pinehurst Lake Association owns 600 acres around the lake. Since that time the State of CT has acquired land around us and has established a State Forest and Water District Property surrounding the lake that will never be developed. The result is a unique piece of history tucked away in a heavily forested part of CT that has not changed in 70 years. We and our neighbors value this exceptional peaceful and quiet environment. We expect our guests to be like minded. Keep the conversation and music at low volume. Neighbors are close by, and sound surrounded by hills carries over water. You can hear a normal conversation across the lake at times. DO NOT APPLY to rent unless you plan on being relaxed and quiet !!
