About Ella Dreskin

We love the water and especially this lake. We looked for years before buying a home on beach drive. The scenery from this side of the lake is quite breathtaking and tranquil.

Ella Dreskin purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Ella Dreskin chose Harwinton

No motor boats on the lake, just small electric engines, kayaks and sail boats. When the sun sets it creates a picture image of the trees and homes from across the lake on the lake surface.

What makes this cottage unique

Proximity to Mohegan Sun and Foxwood Casinos, Warner Theater, wine trail, antique shopping, hiking trails and close to Ski Sundown!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is beautiful. We caught 76 fish all sunfish except for a small bass. Everything was exactly as advertised, except for the annoying owl, but we were very happy overall. Thank you sooo much. We plan on coming back next year.

This is a gorgeous lake side house.

Dreskin's property is equipped with all necessities and is just gorgeous. Close to the beach and just a wonderful view of the lake. Use the kayak's to paddle around the lake. Rented the house for July 4th week. Recommend highly.
