About Amby Smurra

I am retired, and I enjoy and stay at this property daily (when its not rented). This is my 2nd home, and I use the lake for excellent fishing, and quiet times. This property was hand built by me (and family), and it is our family gathering location.

Amby Smurra purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Amby Smurra chose Connecticut

This property has the home feeling you want. Comes with everything including sheets, towels, kitchen supplies, fishing boat, water front views, decks, beach, just about anything you use at your own home. We also have fishing equipment (ice and fresh water) .

What makes this cottage unique

Cleanest water in CT, close to all kinds of attractions. Only 30 minutes from world's largest casino's.

What a lovely home. enjoyed the lake very much. Clean beach and good neighbors. Close to stores and great food. After we were shown how to troll fish, we caught trout for supper. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation. Betty and Bob

Lake Front Property at Lake Alexander, Dayville, CT USA

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful, immaculate lake front home that was well maintained and had all the comforts of home. The owners were helpful and worked hard to ensure that their renters had everything they could possibly need for a wonderful week on the Lake. The property is flat and walks right out to the crystal clear Lake. I would highly recommend this property.

fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a "wonderful" stay! The owners were great and very nice!! Very likable people. The house set up was spacious for our family of 4 (and up to 7) and very well kept and clean. Very nice layout to the home. Everything was well organized with easy to locate towels, dishes etc... The deck and lake side area were also very clean and well maintained with a nice set up to sit and relax or fish from the lakeside or dock. The neighbors were very nice and welcoming as well. Definitely recommend this lake house and will return again ourselves. Thank you for the wonderful stay.

  • 5 of 5

I was only in town for a few weeks, but I didn't want to leave after staying here. The location is on a quiet private lake, no traffic, excellent neighbors, very close to Target, Lowe's, Kohl's, 99 restaurant, Staples, Stop and shop. Local restaurants have excellent food, only 1/2 mile from major highway. This cottage / house has everything I needed to relax, fish, and just feel like home. The owners are very nice, they were there to welcome me, gave me their private phone number to assist me in any way, and gave me my deposit back on the same day of my leaving. I will be back, but next time I am going to stay longer.
