    About this property

    ?? Classic Lakefront Home w/ Everything You Need4 Steps to Private Water Access!

    Lakeside Ferns is our family's lakefront vacation home, and we’ve been renting to other families on HomeAway since July 2015. Add your family’s happy memories here in East Hampton, CT! WHY WE LOVE LAKESIDE FERNS: ** The 50 feet of private frontage on Lake Pocotopaug with a lakeside patio. We provide plenty of water toys, too, including a canoe, a stand-up paddleboard, sit-on-top kayaks (individual and 2-person), paddleboat, life vests and beach towels. ** Because this is also our personal vacation home, we’ve made it as comfortable and clean as possible. We also equipped and stocked it with family-friendly goodies like Wi-Fi, Netflix, Keurig coffee machine (+ pods), outdoor-safe tumblers for cool drinks by the lake, Igloo coolers, charcoal and gas grills, even a jogging stroller! ** Our home is an allergen-reduced environment, which means: Regular air filter maintenance Allergen-reducing protectors on all mattresses, box springs and pillows. (These also protect against bed bugs and dust mites.) All linens are laundered in hypoallergenic, environmentally friendly, non-toxic soap (Charlie’s). Two Himalayan salt lamps, which may help to reduce allergy and asthma symptoms. ** Every bed is a King-size bed! And all have luxury, pillow top mattresses, 750 thread-count sheets, 100% goose down pillows, and allergen-reducing bedding. We sleep up to 6 adults and 2 kids—all in beds. 
 3 BEDROOMS :: The Red Fern :: First floor bedroom with a Smart TV, DVD player and basic cable. :: The Boston Fern :: Upstairs master suite with lake views, direct bathroom access, a 50" Smart TV, Blu-ray player and basic cable. :: The Maidenhair Fern :: Upstairs bedroom with a lake view and small patio. This room has both a King-size bed and a twin bunk (sleeps 2 kids)—perfect for parents who want to keep little ones close. Two additional rollaway beds sleep 2 more. 
2 FULL BATHROOMS :: First Floor Bathroom :: Bathtub/shower combination with hand held shower nozzle, removable seat, and closet with a washer & dryer. Hairdryer, soap and shampoo, handheld steamer, iron with ironing board, basic cleaning supplies, and toiletries included. :: Second Floor Bathroom :: Stall shower and clawfoot bathtub. Starter supply of soap, shampoo, facial tissue and toilet paper provided. Accessed directly from master suite, but shared with Maidenhair Fern. LOCATION From downtown East Hampton, you can hike or bike the scenic Air Line Trail State Park. Plan a date night with dinner at the Gelston House, followed by a show at the historic Goodspeed Opera House on the CT River. Dine, shop and try your luck at Mohegan Sun Casino. End a day of antiquing at The Shops at Marlborough Barn with some comfort food from Sadler's Ordinary. Nearby Belltown Hill Orchards is the place to pick seasonal produce like apples, blueberries, cherries, and peaches. We’re within 35 miles of Bradley International airport, Glastonbury (11 mi.), Hartford (20 mi.), and Middleton (9 mi.). Minimum age requirements and maximum occupancy of 6 adults and 2 minor guests apply. Events (house parties, reunions or weddings), pets and smoking are not permitted. PLEASE READ: Why is the final rate higher than the rate listed? We use variable rates so that we don’t exclude smaller groups. If I set just one flat rate, it would likely be too expensive for a couple or a small family—and a total steal for a group of 8! So the rate increases along with the number of guests. If you divide the total rate by the number of guests, you’ll find the per-night fee per guest is a value for the experience you receive at Lakeside Ferns!

    Our Stay at Lakeside Vacation Home

    My family and I just returned from our second stay at Lakeside Fern and like last year the home was in impeccable condition. Everything you could possibly need is there and if you need something or have a question Marion is very quick in responding. The only thing that was different this time was the blue green algae that developed on the lake before we arrived. Therefore we could not go in the water but could still use the kayak and paddle boat which we did. Marion , as usual, was so gracious in providing tickets for my daughter. son in law and grandson to an area museum and provided information and passes to pools and alternative places they could swim. A new fire pit was put in this year which we enjoyed and Marion provided the firewood and fixing for Smores. We had a wonderful two weeks and look forward to enjoying Lakeside Fern again. Thank you Marion we enjoyed meeting you this year.

    Just like home!

    We had such a nice and relaxing time at the lake. We were looking to get away from our routine and celebrate my birthday in peace and quiet and the house was perfect for our needs. It was so warm and inviting and decorated so nicely all while feeling like it was a hotel at times. From the soaps in the bathroom to the linens and towels. The house was fully equipped. The view of the lake is so appealing and waking up every morning and looking out was exactly what we were looking for. Marian is so sweet and easy to get in touch with. We had such a good feeling throughout our stay. Highly recommend Sadler’s ordinary for any meal- the food and service were both great!

    My grandsons first Christmas at the Lakehouse

    This year was my first grandchild’s first Christmas. And we decided to spend it at the Lakehouse. We always enjoy are stays here. It’s Breathtakingly Beautiful and it feels like home away from home. Everything is always A plus all the way!! Thanks Again Marion

    5/5 Excellent

    This property was exactly as promised and we were very happy.

    We rented this property over the Christmas holidays to attend my nephew's wedding. We decided instead of renting 3 hotel rooms for the weekend to stay together and cozy before and after the actual event. Marian thought of everything for us and even had the house decorated for the holidays. It was not the prettiest time of year to be staying on this beautiful lake but the peace and tranquility and being with our family was enough. The house just had a special cozy feeling about it and would totally recommend to anyone.
