About the property

Laurel Island Is A 5 Acre Islandwith Space For 39 Providing Water And Field Game

Laurel Island is a 5 acre Island in Connecticut south of Hartford, near Middletown. There is a 3000 Lodge plus 5 cabins on the Island. The Island is a perfect place for a family reunion, other reunion, gathering of friends, corporate retreat or other gathering. It is private but close to where you are. The Island is wooded with a one acre open field in the middle. In the field you can find volley ball, horseshoes, bocce, and other field games. There is a fire pit and the Island provides plenty of wood for your evening gathering around a fire roasting marshmallows and making s'mores. Each cabin has a dock, a deck, a kitchen, a bathroom and is private from the other cabins. The Lodge has a very large central room and four bedrooms for your use. There are two bathrooms with showers in the Lodge. There is a shower house in the center of the Island which has two private showers.

The Lodge has a very well equipped kitchen including all the dishes and pots and pans you will need. Each cabin is well equipped with dishes, pots and pans. Every cabin and the Lodge have propane grills and each cabin has a wood burning fireplace or stove. There is swimming in the gorgeous lake as well as canoeing, kayaking, stand up boards and paddle boats as well as row boats. We provide life jackets and paddles for our boats. All available for your use.

You can rent the entire Island including the Lodge plus 5 cabins.

There are nine hammocks, numerous comfortable chairs, a glider for your comfort. The Lodge has a very large porch which overlooks the lake. Each cabin has a different but beautiful view of the lake.

The Island has an off the grid solar electric system which consists of 8 kilowatts of solar power, two large inverters, a large battery and back up generators.

Each cabin has a composting toilet which looks like a normal toilet and operates much like a boat toilet.
