Awesome property.

We rented this property for a family vacation. My husband and I live nearby and my daughter and family were driving 12 hours to stay at the lake. We had a wonderful time. The location is spectacular. Lake Heyward is a hidden gem. They only allow electric boats, so any traffic is minimal. The water is clean and clear, and the scenery is beautiful. The house is well appointed and had everything we needed for a great lake vacation. It is very close to grocery shopping and restaurants, and near hiking, farms and other cool things. David was a wonderful host. He was warm, quick to answer questions (saved the day when my daughter's 7 year old locked them out) and easy to connect with. Wonderful visit. I am hoping this becomes a summer tradition.

Our family had the perfect vacation here. WE loved everything about the property--the house-the location- the view and the lake. Can't wait to come back. We plan on making it an annual tradition for our family.

Great location! What's best about this lake vs. the other local lakes in Connecticut: No power boats! That means all the motors on this lake are electrical and quiet without polluting the water you swim in. Swimming, boating, sailing, board sailing, kayaking and fishing. Lakeside sunsets. Foxwoods Casino, Mohegan Sun Casino, the Connecticut River, the Goodspeed Opera House, Gillette Castle, Mystic Seaport, quaint riverside towns, fine dining, antiquing, historical sites and state parks are within half an hour driving time, or less. Fifty minutes from Bradley International Airport. Two hours from New York City and Boston. Academic or Off Season monthly rental, please contact owner.
