Lakeside cottage ON the water with beautiful views up the lake!

Lakefront cottage with kitchen and balcony
Come visit our cottage on Long Pond!

The cottage feels like you are at a cabin up in Maine. It has a rustic feel and it is on a quiet lake where time seems to have been forgotten. It is literally right on the water, as you can see in the pictures. The cozy cottage is perfect for a vacationing couple, or two, or a family. The waterfront cottage has 2 bedrooms with queen beds and a spacious living room with a wood stove. The large screened-in porch is a favorite place for meals overlooking the water. A large oak tree provides shade with picnic tables, chairs, and a rocking bench by the fire pit, all with water views. There are horseshoes and a second fire pit on the bank looking down the whole lake, and a badminton/volleyball net in the front yard during the summer. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready, just bring your food. Coffee, tea, sugar, and spices are provided. There is a gas grill and firewood provided for the wood stove and the two outdoor fire pits.

The beautiful and attractive town of Mystic is only ten minutes away! You will love walking along the boardwalk and through the cute shops and array of restaurants while also seeing the boats sail by. The Mystic Aquarium is popular for families with children, and the Mystic Seaport is enjoyed by all ages. Old Mystic Village is another place full of quaint shops and good food.

Back at the lake, each season of the year has its own charm at the cottage. The fall brings beautiful colors surrounding the lake, perfect to enjoy the days on the deck, the porch, and the kayaks during warm afternoons, and to cozy up by the wood stove on chilly evenings. The spring is great for get-aways on the water that refresh your mind and get you excited for summer after the cold winter. And summers at the cottage are full of swimming and outdoor fun.

Available starting March 1st there is a hot tub with beautiful lake views. The hot tub maintenance fee is an additional $50 for 1-3 nights, $75 for 4-5 nights, or $100 for 6+ nights.

Kayaks and a canoe are provided. We also have horseshoes, croquet, badminton/volleyball in summer months, Netflix account (but no cable), and board games. Enjoy a campfire with firewood provided as well. If you choose, we have a discount paddleboard rental for just $20/ stay

Dogs are welcome for an additional $30/dog if you notify us in advance.

Ledyard center has a farmer's market every Wednesday 4-7pm from June to September.

You will love your stay at the cottage- enjoying the serenity of nature and the lake, and you are just a 10 minute drive from Mystic-- a favorite tourist town, 5 area wineries, the Connecticut Shoreline, and 5 minutes from Foxwoods casino. Take a walk or a bike ride along the coast, through Mystic, or in the woods such as up Lantern Hill- a hike overlooking cliff views only 5 minutes from the cottage. You can also enjoy activities in Westerly, Mystic, and New London, ask us for more ideas if interested.

Cozy and fun!
We had a lovely time paddling around on their 4 kayaks and fishing off the dock. The view of the pond is beautiful. There was plenty of wood for the fire pits. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The hosts had good communication and were very friendly and helpful. We would love to go back again.
