  • Just what we wanted, and expected !

    "This lake front house was exactly what we wanted. We had searched diligently for all the features which we found in this property- true lakefront, a deck, a lake not too big, not too small, Fall colors, lots of windows for looking out on the lake, quiet neighbors, Kayak/boating opportunities, plenty of interior space, comfortable bed, dish TV, comfy furniture, fireplace, that cozy cabin feel, not too far from shopping and restaurants, and a friendly and helpful owner. The weather was quite chilly, rained a bit- even snowed for several hours, so we didn't get to use the boats or bicycles, but we knew that might happen in late October. Andover Lake is lovely. The property faces West for great sunsets. Sunrises were beautiful too, as the sun slowly filtered through the big tree on the edge of the property and made its way down the hills on the westward side - great photos. The kitchen was well stocked with condiments and cooking items. There was even some beer and soft drinks in the fridge ! Michael was very nice and answered a couple of our questions immediately while we were there, even gifting us with a wonderful box of local chocolates ! The cabin was clean and comfortable for our 5 night stay. Guests are asked to wash and dry towels and linens before leaving, but that was no problem at all (the washer and dryer worked great). I liked the motion detector lights at the front of the house. Coming in at night, they really help. We flew into JFK, rented a car, and drove the 2 1/2 hours to Andover (returning 5 days later). If we had it to do over again, flying from California, we would spend the extra to fly into Hartford and avoid the hassles with NYC and JFK. , but it was do-able and we did enjoy the scenery along the way. We made a couple outings and enjoyed a tour of the Nathan Hale Home nearby, as well as the beautiful Victorian homes on the hill above Willimantic. The whole area was very worthwhile exploring, which was one of our goals. Spend more time exploring the local area, not trying to see everything in New England ! Fall colors timing is an art. A storm the week before we arrived removed many leaves. Some trees were past peak and others had not yet turned, but we enjoyed the many trees that were in fine color. In conclusion, the lake front house was exactly what we wanted, where we wanted, when we wanted it. Michael was the perfect host, and we recommend this place for a couple or a small family."

  • Relaxing Getaway with Friends! Beautiful home right on the water!

    "We just returned from a wonderful week at this cottage feeling rejuvenated, relaxed and so pleased with our trip! We were looking for a beautiful home on the water for 7 of us women to celebrate our friend getting married. Considering we're all so busy, we just wanted a comfortable space to relax in, cook and kayak with great restaurants and attractions nearby. This home way exceeded our expectations! It was gorgeous and very comfortably sleeps 7 (3 full bathrooms was also a super plus!). For all the fun activities close by in Mystic, we actually chose to stay home most of the time - sunbathing on the deck, grilling and dining on the deck, walking on the beach and kayaking. The fact that we could easily launch kayaks from our dock was wonderful as was the 3 minute walk to the beach! We took daily kayak trips to nearby beaches and other areas, even did morning yoga on the pier. The kitchen is fully stocked, the house had everything we needed. Scott, the owner, was very accommodating, super friendly and ready to help in case we needed anything. After the experience we had this week, I definitely plan to go back and next time with family. I highly recommend this spot for families, romantic getaways or relaxing weeks to catch up with good friends. Can't wait to go back! p.s. An Uber ride to downtown Mystic is just $15. I highly recommend taking one night to go to The Oyster Club!"

  • Great place - loved it!

    "I've been renting in Old Lyme for years and this place was by far the best! Condo is clean, the view from the deck was breathtaking, the neighbors were very nice and it was the most relaxing vacation we've ever had. Can't wait to go back next year!"
