There are a variety of activities and attractions for you to choose from.

Wangumbaug Lake, also known as Coventry Lake, covers 373 acres (1.51 km2). The lake is fed by springs, and has one natural outlet, known as Coventry Lake Brook. The brook flows towards South Coventry center and ultimately into the Willimantic River. Patriots Park, located on Wangumbaug Lake, contains a guarded beach, playground, picnic area, lodge facilities, Community Center, and band shell for summer concerts. It is also home of the Coventry Lake Water Ski Team and UConn Men and Women’s Crew Teams. The boat launch is run by the State of Connecticut. Occasionally, during the winter months, the lake will freeze over and residents have the opportunity to skate or fish on the ice.

History: The birthplace of Captain Nathan Hale, Coventry is home to the Nathan Hale Homestead, which is now a museum open to the public.The old center of the town is in South Coventry, near the intersection of Main Street (Route 31) and Stonehouse Road (Route 275). In the 19th century, there was a small industrial center including mills powered by the water from Coventry Lake Brook as it flowed towards the Willimantic River. South Coventry Village, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, also includes several Victorian houses, a museum, the main branch of the public library and the Bidwell Tavern, a bar/restaurant established in 1822. The Bidwell used to keep Coventry's town records in the 'vault' area behind the bar, as well as hosting town meetings.[3] A few doors away is the W.L Wellwood General Store, which under new ownership has been renamed 'Coventry Country Store'. The general store was originally built in 1787 making it one of, if not the oldest General Store in America (a past owner claimed to have not found an older store). In all, the area has over 100 historical buildings on the national register.

Miscellaneous information:

The center of North Coventry is at the intersection of Main Street (CT Route 31) and U.S. Route 44 (section officially known as the Boston Turnpike, but usually referred to simply as 'Route 44'). Near this intersection are two shopping plazas. The first contains a large Highland Park Market. One can buy most any type of common foodstuffs here, as well as freshly baked bread in the morning. This plaza also contains the Meadow Brook Package Store and the Coventry office of Rockville Bank. The second plaza had a NewAlliance Bank now a First Niagara Bank, as well as a CVS and a Dunkin' Donuts. Recently a Walgreens was added across the street from CVS.

wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We just got home after spending a wonderful week at this cottage. Location was great. Cottage was very clean and had a well stocked kitchen. We spend many hours on the screened porch. The owner Jon was very helpful and easy to reach by phone. We hope to be able to go back next year. The beach was great because you had sun or shade, which ever you preferred.

Perfect peaceful fun week!

  • 4 of 5

We had a week at end of August at this lovely and cozy cottage. My husband, kids 7 & 10, and myself. We loved kayaking everyday, playing games, living simply. The boat dock was great to walk and sit on to enjoy the beautiful lake. The house had everything we needed, wifi, kitchen stuff, and plenty of space for four people. The town is very small but there's a good tavern (Bidwell) and great breakfast/lunch place (Meet Me on Main). A perfect end of summer. I could have stayed another week!

Best Week Of The Summer

  • 5 of 5

Great, Fantastic!!!

We have to agree with the other renters about the owner Jon. He was not only available 24/7 when needed but, He made it possible for me to go water skiing! The cottage was clean with all the amenities of home.There is another room that is not in the pictures that has a catheral ceiling which is my favorite. It is big enough to dance in it. Which what we did. Beautiful open views of the lake and island were so pretty our camera was clicking non-stop. There are TWO kayaks and a canoe! Floating tubes were also available. For a couple in our late fifties, it was very romantic! We recommend this cottage very highly.

FUN & RELAXING

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to write this review in order to help others who may be looking for an alternative to a Hotel stay.

One word comes to mind describing our stay at the cottage, FANTASTIC!!! First and foremost, the owner could not have been nicer! He was available 24/7 if you had any questions.

The cottage itself was very clean and well equipped. When we arrived all we had to do was shop for food, that's it!

Our family and friends had such a nice time. To us, there is no better way to enjoy a hard earned vacation then to sit by a BEAUTIFUL lake

and watch the sun set.

I highly recommend this cottage to all who are looking for a rental in Connecticut.

Coventry Lake, Underwood Island

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great stay at the lakeside cottage and especially the private island. Plenty of amenities, clean, well maintained, and excellent customer service. Underwood Island was the best part, quiet, peaceful and no worries. We highly recommend.

Wonderful week on Coventry Lake

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I just returned yesterday from our yearly trip to CT. to visit family and friends. This year we rented this this cottage on Coventyr Lake rather than our usual B&B or hotel. Was so nice to be able to entertain family & friends in such a great setting. Owner Jon was always available if needed. Cottage was very open, bright and airy. Very well maintained & painted in nice soft lake colors. Wonderful open views of lake and island. Had two family gatherings during our stay. Young children enjoyed swimming from the site & older ones jumping off the end of the dock where the water is deeper. Spent alot of our time on the roomy screened porch which has a large glass top table and comfortable chairs. This is a wonderful vacation retreat for a small family or a retired couple like us. Would have liked the second bedroom to have had twin beds rather than bunks as we had my husbands sister and her husband in from Deleware for a couple of nights, but know folks with children would rather have bunk beds. Over all everything was 5 stars. Every thing one could want & need was right there.
