Autumn is a wonderful time to come to the cottage! The lake is surrounded by fall color, and the views of the foliage and their reflections are beautiful from the decks or on kayaks. Take a walk or a bike ride along the shoreline, through Mystic attractions, or in the woods such as up Lantern Hill. You can also visit orchards, wineries, Foxwoods entertainment or shopping, or other attractions at MysticCountry.com.

Our recent remodeling gives the cottage a clean, bright and sunny feel while keeping the character of this 1933 summer home. In the living room we added a whole wall of glass to look out at the beautiful fall colors on the lake. The decks are ideal for an outside meal, barbecuing, yoga, reading, family time, or just enjoying the serenity of nature and the lake. The cottage overhangs the edge of the lake with an expansive 20'x24' water level deck that you can kayak, canoe or swim from, and a large second story deck which makes you feel like royalty as you view nature and the lake from above.The cozy cottage is perfect for a vacationing couple (or two) or a family. It has a medium size bedroom with a queen size bed, a small bedroom with a full size bed, and another queen size bed in the large downstairs family room. Upstairs there is a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and a living room with large french doors that open onto the upper deck with magnificent views of the lake. On the lower level is the living/recreation room (including a laundry area) which opens onto the water level deck. There are two parking spaces that will fit a maximum of two cars.

Kayaks and a canoe are provided for your use at no additional charge. There is also a Huck Finn style raft to sit on or swim from or to untie and float around on. We also have old bikes, internet, DVD player, basic TV, and indoor games. If you choose, we have a paddleboard rental for just $20.

The cottage is removed from noise and bustle, and the quiet and beautiful lake makes it a really fun place to enjoy being part of nature. It is still just a 10 minute drive from Mystic-- a favorite tourist town, 5 area wineries, the Connecticut Shoreline, and 5 minutes from Foxwoods casino. There is also a small, organic "Earth Friendly Farm" that sells vegetables at the beginning of your street.

If dates are full or if you are looking for a second rental nearby for a family and friends, please check out our other cottage on this same lake. The listing is HomeAway #367207 to see pictures and reviews.

About Molly and Bobby

The picture above is of Bobby and his family back in 1976 being children enjoying the lake. His grandparents bought a cottage on the lake in 1955, and now three generations later the cottage is an ever more special place for us, and we very much enjoy our family's vacation each year at the lake. It means a lot to me to hear from guests about good family time and nice quality time for couples.

What makes this cottage unique

This property is perfect for those who want to take in a fantastic lake view. Located right on Long Pond, this cottage boasts a double deck that is perfect for a romantic evening and small gatherings with friends. The upper deck is accessed from large glass french doors right off of the living room. The lower deck accessed from the the family room and has direct access to the lake at lake level, good for swimming and boating.

Great cozy cottage . Perfect place to make some family memories.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a cozy retreat in a great setting. The owner/manager is very accommodating and quick to respond to questions. We really enjoyed our stay and just wish that we had a little more time to spend . Perhaps next year.

Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cozy cottage thoroughly. The view of the lake is spectacular, and the cottage's proximity to Mystic and Groton was great--particularly all of the dog-friendly restaurant patios on the Groton side of the bridge. Great sense of privacy at the cottage.

Very nice. The view makes it great. Short ride to Mystic and a bunch of large parks. Nice quiet spot off the beaten path.
