Lakeside cottage overhanging the water, beautiful window views across the lake

Lakefront cottage with kitchen and balcony
Come visit our cute cottage literally overhanging the lake!

Our recent remodeling gives the cottage a clean, bright and sunny feel while keeping the character of this 1933 summer home. In the living room the big glass doors and windows look out at the beautiful fall colors on the lake. The decks are ideal for an outside meal, barbecuing, yoga, reading, family time, or just enjoying the serenity of nature and the lake. The cottage overhangs the edge of the lake with an expansive 20'x24' water level deck that you can swim or kayak from, and a large second story deck which makes you feel like royalty as you view nature and the lake from above. Both decks are ideal for an outside meal, barbecuing, yoga, reading, family time, or just enjoying the serenity of nature and the lake.

The cozy cottage sleeps up to six people (4 adults, 2 kids allowed by the town), making it perfect for a vacationing couple (or two) or a family. It has a medium size bedroom with a queen size bed, and a small bedroom with a full size bed. There is also a queen bed downstairs in the family room. There is a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and a living room with large french doors that open onto the upper deck with magnificent views of the lake. On the lower level is the living/recreation room (including laundry machines) which opens onto the water level deck. There are always areas on the deck to be in the shade if needed. There are two small parking spaces that will fit a maximum of two cars.

Kayaks and a canoe are provided for your use at no additional charge. There is also a Huck Finn style raft to sit on or swim from during the summer, or to untie and float around on. We have internet, a DVD player, a TV with Netflix and Amazon prime provided, and indoor games. If you choose, we have a hot tub on the lower deck with beautiful lake views. The maintenance fee is an additional $50 for 1-3 nights, $75 for 4-5 nights, or $100 for 6+ nights. Also, we have a paddle board rental for only $20.

The cottage is removed from noise and bustle, and the quiet and beautiful lake makes it a really fun place to enjoy being part of nature. It is still just a 10 minute drive from Mystic-- a favorite tourist town, 5 area wineries, the Connecticut Shoreline, and 5 minutes from Foxwoods casino. There is also a small, organic farm stand that sells vegetables at the beginning of your street (only during the summer and fall).

There are endless recommendations for all sorts of places less than 20 minutes away. Here are a few suggestions:

Family adventure
My brother and I each rented cabins on Long Pond from Bobby, Molly, & Paola. We hosted our wives, kids, parents plus a few friends that popped in for afternoon visits. It was an incredible few days and we got lots of enjoyment from the cabins and the lake. We spent lots of time in Mystic and also Foxwoods also. The house managers are very good and accommodating, and the houses have plenty of stuff to make you feel at home. We will definitely be back!

Idyllic retreat
A peaceful cottage overlooking Long Pond with kayaks and a canoe. The pond was clear and warm, perfect for swimming off the 2 floats. Cottage is air conditioned and has a fully equipped kitchen. Near to Mystic, Stongington and Groton. Plenty of restaurants within 25 minute drive. A great find!

Great house with an amazing view!
The home was spotless. Beds were extremely comfortable. Views from the decks were amazing. Loved being able to kayak, canoe, and raft right off the back deck. It was extremely hot outside, but inside was cool and comfortable. Our favorite part might have been the swings on the lower deck.
