About Janet

We have travelled all around the country over the years, but the best times have always been spent with family and friends at our places in Connecticut and Florida. Cherished memories have been made there and we are so happy to be able to share our homes with our guests so that they can do the same.

Janet purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Janet chose Ashford

For as long as I can remember, my dream was to wake up, get a cup of coffee, and walk to the water's edge. We searched and searched for a quiet private lake near our home in Connecticut and came upon this one. It was perfect. Ashford Lake is clean and peaceful. We can see the sunrise every morning. I can't tell you the amount of wildlife I've seen - herons, ducks, geese, and a great surprise - 2 muskrats floating on their backs enjoying the early morning sun, right in front of the cottage! Over the years we have enjoyed 4th of July fireworks, had family picnics, caught a 12-inch bass, gazed in awe at the beautiful fall foliage, and watched an impromptu kids ice hockey game on the frozen lake in a snowstorm in January!

What makes this cottage unique

More than anything, we enjoy having this special lakefront cottage all to ourselves when we are there. It is secluded, but within less than an hour's drive of many things to do, and if you live in Connecticut, probably close enough to run back to your office if need be, while the rest of the family enjoys the outdoors! Swimming, fishing, star-gazing, games on the lawn, hiking on our dirt roads and nearby trails, visiting nearby UCONN, the antique shops of CT, the Woodstock and Brooklyn Fairs, listening to live music at The Vanilla Bean cafe... There is so much to do, but on the flip side, you can just relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We cam back to CT to be with our very ill mother. She was too ill to enjoy the

cabin with us, however, my sister and I enjoyed it very much. It is a great

cottage and was extremely clean. We were pleasantly surprised at how

wonderful it was here.



Thank you,



Cheryl and Sheila

Spectacular view

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a few nights at this he and loved it! The lake is spectacular and the view is incredible! The home is simple but clean and very comfortable. Everything was in very good working order, well kept and user friendly. We loved using the yard, grill, boat, and dock. The home has everything you need and has a great floor plan for families. We will definitely be back and tell our friends too! Highly recommend!!

Home away from Home

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I took our two dogs for the week. It was awesome. The view from the living room was stunning. It was so peaceful. It's hard to find a nice place to take your dogs away with you and they both just chilled out and relaxed right along with us. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen nicely stocked. Our favorite spot was sitting in the living room, the ceiling to floor windows provided a wonderful view of the lake. I can't say enough good about this place...it was Home away from Home. So nice we are already booking another week next year. A perfect place to just rest and relax and enjoy the lake. Looking forward to returning next year.

Wonderful Ashford Lake Cottage

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed for the weekend at this wonderful Lake Ashford cottage. There were three of us. Beds were comfy. The shower was hot and had powerful flow. The sitting room was amazing. It had a full bank of wall to floor windows that overlooked the lake. We could sit on the couch and just gaze out. So peaceful. It also had a lake front fire pit that was awesome. We made use of the canoe and cruised around the lake. The kitchen was amply stocked. One of the days was rainy so we sat and watched movies on the VCR or just watched TV. We had a great time here and will definitely be back. Thank you!

Away from it All!

  • 5 out of 5
This is our 8th year staying at Ashford Lake Cottage! It is a casual oasis of peace and quiet. We enjoy fishing, and do really well in this private lake. If you love being by the water, you have a wall of windows to see the lake the entire day. The openess of living room, kitchen is bright and airy and the a//c
will cool things down on those hot summer days. Equipped for your cooking needs as well. We never tire of our vacation at Ashford, our dogs are welcome and that is almost impossible to find.
If you are looking for a place to just kick back and relish some true serenity and just enjoy nature, this is it. Will we make it 9th year? YOU BET!! If there is a problem, and you need to contact the owners, they respond immediately and will do anything to make your stay a pleasure. Carol & Mike

Our June Vacation at Ashford Cottage

  • 5 out of 5
What a casual oasis! The private like is truly a stone's throw from the cottage, and the deck is just
perfect for fishing off the dock or just sitting and taking in the lovely lake. Quiet, with no motor boats to
interrupt your thoughts!! Cottage is equipped with everything you need, clean, airy and bright.
The a/c was a pleasure on those occasional warm days. There are also picnic tables in the nice size yard, perfect for a BBQ lunch outside.Very comfortable in our stay here. Would we rent again.

You Betca!!

Waterfront Tranquility

  • 5 out of 5
I rented the cottage last week and it was perfect - the location, the quietness, the water temp and nature's critters: Fish, Turtles and Ducks. We used the canoe every day, boating across the lake to the beach area, or simply out for a paddle.

We had some great weather days and a couple of rainy ones, but that is okay. Simply leave your cell phone behind and walk the 82' to the water's edge. Three picnic tables, a grill and fire pit meet you on your walk down.

The cottage faces east, so sunrise is bright. The beds are very comfortable and the house is immaculate. We brought too much food, but better to have more than less. The farmer's market on the weekend is a bountiful harvest. There is also a Dairy/roadside food stand on Rt 44, a couple miles from the cottage.

The road along the lake is paved and some crushed rocks, but I was able to ride the bike around it and run on the surface.

Thank you so much to Bill and Janet for allowing us to rent the cottage and bring along our two dogs. They could not get enough of the swimming and were definitely tired out by days end.

Today is back to work... I am already looking forward to Summer 2013 rental retreat.
