About the property

3 B/r 2 Bath House On A Gently Sloping Waterfront Lot With Views Of The Lake.

This classic waterfront home sits on the shore of Candlewood Lake in the middle of New Milford Bay with western exposure. The house is approx. 1000 sq. ft and has two regular queen bedrooms with closets and dressers. Also a smaller room with upper and lower bunk beds and a dresser. There is a full bath (shower) on the main floor. The kitchen living room and dining room is open concept with knotty pine board walls, fireplace and sliding door walk out to the deck area. There is a TV in the living room with basic cable and wireless internet. The TV has been upgraded with a Samsung 40 flat screen and Blu-Ray player. The house is heated with forced hot air and has central air conditioning.

The basement has a second bath with shower, changing room, an extra refrigerator, small bar area and a washer and dryer. The deck area has beautiful views of the lake and waterfront with built in seating. The stairs from the deck lands on to a lower patio area with an outdoor fireplace. Then the walkway winds down the lawn to the waterfront patio with access stairs to the lake and ramp access to the dock. The property comes with a private swimming float that is shared with our neighbor to the south. The driveway and parking along the east side of the house can accommodate up to 3 vehicles and a boat trailer.

This cottage is nicely equipped and perfect for water sports, fishing or just a relaxing vacation. It's located just 90 miles from NYC. The near by train station makes it convenient to visit the big city.

About Neil Fitchett

My grandfather purchased this property in 1953 and built the house. It's been a vacation spot for our entire family now going into the 4th generation.

Why Neil Fitchett chose Candlewood Lake

Easy living, beautiful lake side views and access to sandy beach next door. Only 3 miles to stores and downtown New Milford. Wonderful neighbors and a great community.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is actually 1.5 lots so the waterfront is extra wide. Unlike many waterfront properties on the lake, this lot is a gentle easy slope down to the water with mowed lawn and lots of room for your water toys or just hanging out in the sun or shade.

Nice Property and Nice owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property, wonderful location. If you have your own boat or rent one, it's a dream to step out the back door and hop in your boat from the private dock. Wonderful combination of trees for shade or sit in the sun near the water. The house does need some basic updates but is very clean and functional. The owners are very responsive to questions and are flexible. Hope to be back soon. SS - Morris CT.

Delightfully fresh and comfortable lakefront cottage

  • 5 of 5

Well stocked cottage. Awesome for a respite or family retreat. Morning family prayer and devotions on the dock made the time just extra special. Highly recommend this property

House could stand a bit of remodeling and new funiture. The grounds and outdoor facilities are great! Our granddaughters swam, fished and generally loved the big yard and lake front area

Owner's Response: The house is as advertised and priced accordingly making it one of the best values in direct waterfront property on Candlewood Lake. We did purchased new queen beds in 2016, it's clean confortable and has everything needed to enjoy a wonderful vacation. As indicated by this review, the waterfront is the main attraction and the primary reason our guests book this property. It's extra wide, with long gently sloping lawns which is hard to come by on Candlewood Lake.

Beautiful Views, Park-Like Property

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our Fall weekend stay at this lovely lakefront house. The park-like property is spacious and suitable for outdoor games and gatherings with stunning lake views with a large dock and great deck with gas grill. The house is very clean, cozy and comfortable with views from most of the rooms. We enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor fireplaces. We will definitely be visiting this property again!

Excellent lake front property. It's as advertised. The home is very very well equipped and clean, and the views are wonderful. Loved the big green lawn leading to the lake. Great swimming right in front of the house! Really enjoyed BBQing on the large Grill. An excellent time was had by all!
