great cozy escape from the city

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on the lake, the house was very clean, great location close to the marina with the boat rental options. Got our security deposit back in the timely matter, very pleasant stay.

Owner's Response: We do our best to make everything as comfortable as possible. I am a business traveler and spend a lot of time in hotels. I understand that it is the little things that make for a pleasant stay. That is why I try to think of what I would like if I were staying here. Comfortable sleeping conditions, well cleaned and disinfected rooms, and most important is a well equipped kitchen, so you can easily make any cuisine. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy! Thank you for taking the time to write this review. It was a pleasure having you as our guest.

Relaxing Vacation On The Lake

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed vacationing at Mary and Sven's lake house every summer since 2009 and we always look forward to returning! Their listing description is very accurate, the property is always clean and well maintained. They continually make improvements, and this year, the resurfaced dock/deck was wonderful! They provide a book that is filled with useful information about the house, as well as the activities and restaurants in the area. Any questions are always answered in a timely manner. We highly recommend this lake house; you won't be disappointed!

Beautiful Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Do yourself a favor and book this house for your next getaway!

We recently stayed at Mary and Sven's Lake house for a girls getaway and it was such an amazing experience. The house itself is great you can tell the owners take pride in their property. It was super clean, beds were comfortable, and plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The best part though is the dock and lake views.

The dock is a great place to hang out all day and was even big enough for our morning yoga session.

Thank you Mary and Sven for such an amazing trip and sharing your home with us! We will be booking again for next year!

Amazing 4th of July holiday get-away vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful 4th of July holiday vacation. Mary was very nice and offered clear advise on everything about the house in addition to the "Welcome" book which had alot of details. We loved everything about the house, the dock and the lake. The house was very clean and the AC was wonderful on the hot days. The bathrooms and kitchens were very fresh and new. The kitchen was very well equipped, so we cooked great dinners. The Wi-Fi worked well which our children appreciated. The home owners around the lake set off fireworks for the 4th of July weekend every night we were there (they took turns with shows). We watched the private show from the dock and the enclosed porch after dinner. We went out for dinner to Yokohama, an amazing Japanese restaurant which had delicious specialty sushi rolls. We rented a boat from Echo Marina (~15min away) a few days to cruise around the lake and swim in different coves. We also enjoyed the water on our floats by the house dock. We rented a canoe from Clark Outdoors (~30min away), so we could paddle around the cove and fish too. We fished off the dock, off the boat and the canoe as well. A very well stocked supermarket (Big Y) is only ~5min away. The town of New Milford is adorable with a center green, local stores and restaurants (~8min away)Overall a wonderful, relaxing vacation. We look forward to coming back again. Thank you for renting out your wonderful lake home!

Rustic and beautiful

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home a week before our son's wedding at the Candlewood Inn. Mary was terrific to work with. Very available and communicative.

The home was rustic but comfortable and had all the amenities. Enjoyed the dock, grill and especially the screened in porch. Had never had to bring our own linens and towels before, but apparently that is common here. It worked beautifully for us. Thank you Mary and Sven!

Our stay at Candlewood was exactly what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect vacation in this beautiful home with plenty of privacy in a quiet neighborhood. I started off my day with a sunrise yoga session on the dock. The lake was so peaceful. We enjoyed hiking Candlewood Mountain just 3 miles down the road. The nearby marina has boats, jet-skies, and kayaks for rent. The Olsen's have a cozy home with new appliances that lends itself to a relaxing and stress free get away. If we didn't feel like cooking we would drive our boat to the local spot to eat and drink called Down the Hatch. We also found a neat spot where people climb a cliff and jump off into the lake. We just anchored our boat had some lunch and watched people jump. One day we checked out one of the local wineries. They have tastings daily and beautiful grounds to have picnics. When we weren't exploring the lake or the local area we relaxed on the dock. Our stay at Candlewood was exactly what we wanted relaxing, beautiful scenery, and adventure. We are coming back every year!
