Guestbook comments from the owner
We had an incredible weekend at the lake house. The photos don't truly do the home and location justice. The setting is so beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing, that the house (which has been renovated) is just a bonus. We spent two nights here over Memorial Day Weekend and even on bad weather days, we sat back and took in the incredible view from inside. When the sun did rise, we sunbaked and kayaked the pristine lake. Our weekend was topped off with a wedding proposal; this was a weekend getaway that we will never forget. Victoria and John were also incredibly easy to communicate with and were very helpful in recommending things to do and nearby restaurants, and made us feel very at home.

Wife, Mother, who works and manages our cottage.

Victoria purchased this cottage in 2009

Fell in love with this property the moment we seen it. Now we want to share it with others. The lake is private to owners and guests. No public access. This is great for water sports.

Awesome View, Private lake, Great Location. Bring your boat for added fun. Lake is great for tubing, water skiing, and fishing.

EXACTLY AS ADVERTISED - JUST WONDERFUL

  • 5 out of 5
It is so rare that any place you rent/book for a vacation is as good or better than the pictures and descriptions advertised. This place was!!!! The pictures are EXACTLY how picturesque the cabin was only they did not really do it justice. The weather was not wonderful the majority of the time we were there but we were still able to do all the of the following: firepit, barbecue, kayaking, fishing, reading outside, playing board games, cooking great meals, and visiting Mohegan Sun. The place was instantly relaxing and extremely clean. The thing that struck me most was that everything you could ever think to need for a vacation away from home was there in the cabin. Everything you could need to cook whatever you wanted, every form of entertainment both indoors and outdoors you could want, even items you might have forgotten like shampoo. And while some may be turned off by needing to clean before you leave, Victoria could not have made it simpler. All the supplies you could need to clean are there ready to go and if you don't feel like it, there is a cleaning services card on the front table you can call and pay $40 to have it cleaned for convenience. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone needing to just get away and relax. It feels like you've been transported out of your life to a personal retreat for a few days. In case you cannot tell, I have nothing but good things to say.

OWNERS ARE SUPERB

  • 5 out of 5
The cottage was exactly as represented on the website. It was a relaxing perfect place for my husband and I to stay as we prepared to relocate to the Groton/New London region.

One of the highlights of this stay is the owner Victoria. She was extremely professional and responded to both phone and email promptly. The owners rightfully have a great deal of pride in the cottage, this shows not only in the upkeep of the property, but in the service they provided us during our stay.

We now live in the area. And I will likely continue to rent the cottage, both as a weekend getaway and when we have friends and family visit us.

GREAT LOCATION AND VERY RELAXING

  • 5 out of 5
This cottage is better than the pictures shown. It's exactly what we were looking for in our vacation! It's centrally located and has a wonderful view. The house is perfect for a couple hoping to get away from the city for some peace and quiet. We took advantage of the location and traveled to many of the local towns, as well as Boston and New York. Victoria is very accommodating! Highly recommended!!

NICE ENOUGH

  • 3 out of 5
Very, very small, but that is okay. I knew that before I went. My biggest complaint was the cleanliness of the kitchen dishes. I washed everything before I used it. (Ex. - food stuck in baking dish, eggs still on spatula, glasses with lipstick on them.) Rest of the house was clean.

Needs updating. Kitchen dishes were very, very old. Decor needs updating. Couch is uncomfortable. You sink into the back of it. Might be nice if the bed had a headboard or some kind of sturdier frame. Every time anyone moved even an arm, the thing creaked like crazy. I wound up sleeping on the couch.

Now, with that said. The location is great, the views are fabulous, and we loved the beach sitting area and the fire pit. We also had several little buddies in the way of ducks, a goose (we called him Gary) and a heron or two.

Would I go back? Probably not, but I will admit that I'm pretty picky when it comes to cleanliness. I do not want to see other's food on my cooking untensils. Try it for yourself.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you experienced a lack of cleanliness in the kitchen. As we make every effort to make sure things are clean, it is hard to inspect every dish, utensil, glasses and pots and pans. I only wish you said something during your stay.
