About The Owner

We both grew up summering in the area and have deep roots and lots of family in the area. We have an unimproved cabin on property nearby where we stay in the summer and spend our time in this cottage in the winter.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

Why The Owner chose Charlestown

The lakes on the north side of Rt 1 in South County are glacial kettle holes - in the glacial morraine - it is a very special place with beautiful pristine beaches nearby. Watchaud Pond is clean and surrounded by preserved land. Charlestown is very un-commercial - we love the peacefulness year round.

Nice, clean and comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with my sister and brother in law. We enjoyed that the cottage was clean and well kept with many amenities. You can tell the owners give their cottage good attention, as they are concerned that their guests enjoy it. They wanted us to make it our home away from home, and we did. The house is across from the lake, and we could drop our kayaks in the lake about 1-2 blocks down the same road. We were visiting with other family for a nieces college graduation. This was a nice, and well kept cottage with the perfect hosts.

Perfect place for our family reunion!!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with this Lakefront Cottage. It was the perfect spot for our family and our dogs to unwind and enjoy all this location on Watchaug pond has to offer. The cottage is located on a quiet lane that is steps away from the very large pond! It was so convenient to be able to access the water for swimming and relaxing.We had everything we needed to make ourselves comfortable, great beds, 2 bathrooms, ample living space and well equipped kitchen. It was very quiet and peaceful also. We would love to return next year!! Thanks Todd and Liz!!

perfect place for a low key getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was just perfect for our casual family gathering this summer! We had kids and adults and all ages enjoyed the lake, the comfortable and no frills home, and the beaches nearby. SO nice to have the lake just 50 feet from the front door on days when the beach parking lot was full and/or lifeguards wouldn't allow swimming in the ocean! We also enjoyed the backyard and patio for bubble blowing, kickball, grilling, etc. Outdoor shower is a nice feature (not enclosed for privacy but has hot/cold water, and hidden behind the house).

This is not a house for very tall people - ceiling fans are frighteningly close to your head if you're above 5'10". Kitchen was well stocked, beds comfortable enough for a rental house, two bathrooms a HUGE plus, a surprising amount of "living" space even on a rainy day. We had a wonderful stay and will be back!
