We enjoyed a wonderful Christmas at this amazing lake front estate. The buildings and property are truly one of a kind.
Our accommodations were roomy and comfortable. There were all the necessary tools in the kitchen to prepare family meals and a fire in the fireplace gave it a nice feel. A larger dinning table would be a nice addition. The best thing in the guest suite, where we stayed, were the amazing views overlooking the lake, especially at sunrise and sunset. Although we did not use the porch much because of the chilly temps, it must be an amazing place to relax during the warmer months.
The pool area was beautiful and we took full advantage of the area as we were the only guests around. The pool itself was a bit brisk but warm enough to enjoy after the initial shock. The hot tub and sauna were perfect but the bathroom/shower areas are in need of a good cleaning. As there is no direct access from the guest suite to the pool, it is a little chilly walking back and forth outside.
We enjoyed many walks around the property with our dogs and were able to get some wonderful photos. The property staff were friendly and informative and the location is easily accessible from the New London Sub Base.
The reason I am only giving it four rather than five stars is due to some of the maintenance issues. The property recently changed hands and is in need of some more work to get it up to the standards that a $500+ night home demands. (ex. leaves everywhere, outdoor furniture scattered about, television and fireplace not working in pool house, lights going off and on without reason, curtains in bedrooms) That being said, there was work being done through out our stay and I'm sure it is just a matter of time till everything is up to par.
Wonderful family retreat.
Both the grounds and lodging are an excellent place to get away with the whole family. We rented the 3 bedroom house and the 2 bedroom cabin. The house - with pool table and fireplace- was a perfect gathering place for our group of 10 adults and 2 children. There was plenty of space to socialize and the kitchen was adequate for meal prep for the crowd.
We enjoyed the pool and hot tub, there is a large space in the pool building for relaxing in warmth. The pool was heated- not hot but warmer than many hotel pools. There are hiking trails on the grounds, we also used the fire pit and lawn for yard games.
I recommend Camp Wakenah and we hope to return. Brian was prompt and helpful, very easy to do business with.
Thank you Arlene for such a wonderful review. It was wonderful having you and I'm glad everyone enjoyed themselves and the holiday weekend.
The owners and property manager were very helpful and friendly! Very clean and the pool area was gorgeous. We would definitely stay here again!
Colleen, it was a mutual pleasure having you and your friends stay with us. We're glad you enjoyed your time and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Looking forward, Brian
