We needed a place to stay for five nights that was close to Hartford and would allow us to make some day trips in the area. We were also looking to get a place that was more affordable than most of the properties nearer to the coast. We had need for accommodations for four adults.
Pros: Quiet, roomy and well stocked kitchen for cooking. Good Wifi and easy to connect.
We used the Culligan water machine for drinking and coffee water as the tap water is from a well and was cloudy with a taste.
Cons: Downstairs was a bit musty, but we really didn't use it except for the laundry. We had a bunch of ants in the kitchen for the first 3 days. After cleaning a bit and running the dishwasher, they were gone. Some of the ceiling fans and several lights did not work. However, AC units were fine.
My wife and my daughter's family (including my daughtr, her husband and two grandson's), stayed at this property while attending a funeral. We decided to stay a few extra days to fill up the week.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there in this peaceful setting. The setup allowed privacy when needed for bedrooms and bathrooms, yet provided a great gathering area for the whole family in what I would call a "great room" portion of the house which included the spacious kitchen, dining room and large living area. This great room allowed us to chat while watching tv, dining, or preparing meals. The kitchen had everything we needed - all we had to do was buy the food.
While remote and quiet, the property is also centrally located in CT, allowing us a reasonable drive to the airport and to the shoreline where the whole family went to Mystic Seaport and the Aquarium as well as the beach. It is also located very close to a great state park, The Devil's Hopyard, which has a great stream complete with waterfalls. Here, my grandson caught his first fish, a large brook trout.
The owners were very easy to work with and the process was handled without hassles or surprises, The property was clean, and everything advertised met or exceeded our expectations. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend this property to any friend or relative.
My family had a wedding to attend in Connecticut so we stayed at this beautiful clean home in East Haddam. It was very spacious and family friendly with plenty of play space out in the backyard. Most importantly was the easy access to the private beach, which was small but never crowded. The owners of the home were easily accessible, prompt and very reliable. We wish we could have stayed more than one week!! We would definitely return here.
This newer house is located on a quiet Cul-de-sac just a short walk
away from Sunset acres private beach on Bashan Lake, with beach rights
included. This 2 bedroom home can sleep up to 6 people. Comes with fully equipped kitchen, linens & towels. Bashan Lake is a
crystal clear, spring-fed lake surrounded by natural beauty.
East Haddam is located 30 minutes from Hartford, 20 minutes from
Old Saybrook, and a perfect central location for daytrips to Mystic Seaport, Mystic Aquarium, Mohegan Sun, MGM and Foxwoods Casino's, Groton Submarine Base and Museum, Nature's Art (Dinosaur Park), Gillete Castle, Goodspeed Opera House, Kid City and many other attractions.
Other Activities: Shopping, wildlife viewing, beautiful sunsets over the lake.
