Perfect location for a great lakeside vacation

  • 5 of 5

We travelled all the way from England for this vacation, and were very pleased to find the house exceeded our expectations. It was well equipped, clean, bright and extremely spacious. The availablity of the canoe and kayak (and computer!) meant our teenage children were kept happy. Rich and Kris Anne made us very welcome.

Excellent Find

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of senior friends that like to take a reunion vacation. This house is perfect for many reasons. Comfortable home with upper and lower decks which overlook the lake. Comfy beds and plenty of room to accomodate all six of us. The owner is available 24/7 and has helped us from "working" the TV/DVD to bringing in a bigger table for our get together dinners. Sparkling clean and well maintained. Close to supermarket, pharmacy, gas and many restaurants. Stock up on food or eat locally. Dunkin Donuts is a favorite. I would highly recommend this vacation house. This is our 6th year renting and we look forward to our 7th.

Blessed our socks off!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect spot, our stay was amazing. We had difficulty finding a home that would accommodate so many children and 4 adults. We found it here. Rich has done such a wonderful job with his lake house it felt just like home. The kids didn't want to leave. Great yard for the kids to play including a sand box for the little ones. We liked that it the lake house was private but still close to stores. We spent a lot of time on the expansive decks enjoying the view of the lake and the stars at night. We were even able to spend some adult time around the fire pit. Can't say enough about the lake house. Rich was a great host, very accommodating. The kids can't wait to come back next year. Thank you again.

Fantastic family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

The house was spotless, and everything needed was supplied, including kayaks, life preservers, and enough beachtowels for the whole extended family. The decks were a wonderful place to sit and look at the lake, and the lawn was a perfect place for games for children and adults. Rich was very welcoming. The adults enjoyed the tiki bar at Angelicos, and the children loved the ice cream and playhouse at the ice cream stand down the road. It was a wonderful family vacation!

Outstanding place to spend your vacation at

  • 5 of 5

BEST vacation ever, this place is unbelievable. Has absolutely everything you could ask for. A beautiful lake to enjoy, kayaks, 3 to be exact in great condition a canoe and a paddleboat with life vests. Close to shopping and all attractions in CT. The place is private, in excellent condition like new actually, you need to bring nothing with you. Rich the owner had done a fantastic job furnishing and keeping the pace in top shape. If you're looking for a private get away yet close to attractions and shopping on a lake this is the place for you. We will be back next year.

Owner's Response: These folks were a pleasure to host - although they flew in from FL, they were originally from in East Hampton and were familiar with local history, landmarks, etc. Turned out we had friends in common and it felt like we had known each other for years - not one week! Looking forward to seeing them again next year!!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of spending 6 weeks in this beautiful lakefront home. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Our every need was met, with the home fully stocked for all our desires. In addition, the home was equipped with plenty of boats, canoes and kayaks for us to get full use of the lake. The washer and dryer is a bonus, and the outside shower is a wonderful place to have the kids clean off before entering the home. The location couldn’t have been any better with all sorts of restaurants located nearby. The favorite spot was the covered deck as it provided a comfortable place to put your feet up and relax and take in the views. The owners were very attentive to our needs, and we really appreciated all the tips they provided. We can't wait to go back next year!!! Fantastic home!!
