RELAXING, AFFORDABLE, FUN - NEW ENGLAND BEACH VACATION & ACADEMIC RENTAL

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Lebanon

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Lovely cottage nestled on quiet lot near one of the most gorgeous beaches you've ever seen - Lollipop Island. The water is crystal clear and great for kayaking, canoeing, sailing, swimming, fishing and just enjoying the sun and sunsets. The cottage has a beach cart, two kayaks and two bicycles for your use; just off the wrap-around deck is a stone fire ring for your campfire and s'mores. The cottage is very comfortable with everything you need, including laundry, fully applianced kitchen, CATV flat-screen TV/DVD player, new mattresses, high chair and portable crib. Use any of the private association's areas, including the other large beach across the lake. Within a few mins' drive are stores, restaurants and fuel; within 30 mins. are fancier options in Glastonbury and Hartford, or in CT's 3 casinos. Mystic is only about 45 mins. away; New York is 2 hours; Boston or the Vermont border about 1.5 hrs. If you let us know your interests, we will gladly make some area recommendations for your vacation, if desired. We have lived in this area and region most of our lives. For academic/sabbatical guests, the house is centrally located among the colleges and universities of eastern and central Connecticut.

We are quite open to sharing our home, or using it ourselves - it's all good! Because we live nearby we are accessible to our guests for help if any issues arise - but the few issues that have, were minor and most of our guests have been extremely pleased with their stays - we already have some guests who have returned the following year, or rented additional weeks in the same year.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2010

Before we had this property giving us access to beaches and water recreation, we really didn't know what we'd been missing. We were fortunate the home is only a few minutes drive from our primary residence, so it is easy to get there and easy to help our guests have the best stay possible.

The Simple Life Defined!

  • 5 out of 5
The lake house was outstanding. Our day to day busyness and stress washed away within moments of getting to the house and seeing the amenities available and finding that the Owners had thought of everything and kept the place pristine.
All the needs we could think of were there and available, the access to the lake was great, the surrounding area was a nature lovers dream, and the peace and quiet was just what the doctor ordered.

Thanks to John and Rita, we will be looking forward to next year!

Quiet and Clean

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I have stayed at four different lakes in CT and Amston Lake is our favorite. It's quiet, clean, and very family-friendly. It was such a relief not to hear the obnoxious roars of Jet Skiis and to smell gasoline as we swam. This cottage is also the best one we've ever rented. It was roomy, clean, and the landlord was very responsive and organized. The area (Lebanon) is also beautiful and close to grocery stores, restaurants, and historic sites. We plan to rent this cottage again next year.

Owner's Response: We share your appreciation of the lake as a quiet body of water, where the loudest sounds are young children playing in the sand, the occasional flap of a sail and the gentle swoosh of a canoe or kayak paddle stroke. Thank you for choosing our cottage and we look forward to hosting your stay next year.

Excellent fall get-away!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great 3-night stay at this beautiful cottage! The lake was beautiful and offered great sunset. Using the provided bikes we biked along the airline trail (see photos) and hiking in Grayville Falls State Park was very nice.

The house was perfect-- everything from the fire pit to the grill to wifi and cable tv! Very nice bedrooms/baths. A+

The Brice Hacienda

  • 5 out of 5
We loved staying at your home! Everything we could possibly want or need was there for us. We rented your home for our children visiting from San Diego to use while they were here. They have decided they need to come back frequently. They had a wonderful time enjoying Lollipop beach, kayaking and bike riding.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We will be back!

A fantastic vacation

  • 5 out of 5
What a wonderful cottage, it was so well kept and tidy and had everything we could possiblely need. The lake was beautiful and one of the cleanest that I have ever seen. Kayaking on the lake was spectacular, it was great not to get run over by speed or motor boats since they don't allow them on the lake. Sitting by the fire out night gave us the feeling of camping without having to deal with sleeping outside. The owners are very curtious and helpful with any questions we had. We can't wait to stay again!
Thanks so much!!
Megan, Josh, and Mila
