Guestbook comments from the owner

We so enjoyed our weeks stay in this "darling" cabin! Our grandchildren had such fun visiting with us(ages 7 and 10), and we used our private beach daily. They both caught their first fish, then caught their first 100 fish!

We are so impressed with the wonderful condition of this cabin. It is so clean, so well stocked and so well maintained!!! It is thoroughly and completely comfortable. Thanks for everything.

Cozy Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at the Chalet and only wish I'd had more time to enjoy the lake area. Neil, the owner, was very accommodating and responsive when I had a few questions about things. I felt nothing but welcomed to stay there. I found being away from it all with the woods around very relaxing. I enjoyed my coffee each morning on the deck. The lake was just a quick walk down the road and I had a peaceful hike around the area. In town for a wedding, the Chalet was close enough to downtown New Milford (about 10 minutes) to make it very convenient for me, but removed enough to get a break and catch my breath. My boyfriend was sad to have sat this one out when I sent pictures. Who knows, maybe another trip here in the future to experience the true lake life.

Woodsy hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a neighborhood above Candlewood Lake where I grew up and spent many happy summers. The huge A frame window provided a view of the forest which was like living in a tree house. It was absolutely magical. We woke up to the sounds of song birds and the hum of boats on the lake. The house fulfilled every wish that my family had and we would happily go back there again. Thank you for opening up your home to us.

Not a winter place to stay.

  • 3 of 5

Place is nice enough, but really dated. We had to shovel the drive so our car could get in and out. Neighbors kept turnaround area blocked by one of their guest, most of the weekend. We had to get our car towed out of the driveway with just a fresh dusting of snow. Neighbors were very helpful, this a spring and summer place I think.

Owner's Response: We would respectfully disagree. We have sucessfully rented this chalet year round for nine years and never had an issue of this kind. The driveway is plowed and accessible. This was a sudden, unexpected snow squall that dropped a few inches very quickly. The guest, upon entering the driveway, went off the pavement and got stuck on the side. Our neighbor, who shares the same driveway, and another neighbor in the community did the neighborly thing. They pulled the guest out at no charge, shoveled the light snow away, and threw down some salt. The blocked turn-around issue could have been resolved immediately if the guest had simply notified us. We pride oursleves in being attentive to these needs. Unfortunatly we were not made aware. As for the house, it is exactly as pictured in the photos. A clean, classic A-frame with a lot of character, cozy bedrooms, and a fireplace. Additionally it has a nice view of the lake which is much better in the winter when the leaves are off the trees. It is also very competitively priced. We are sorry this incident happened but to say that it"s not a winter place is to miss the beauty of the season and the experience of a winter time lakeside retreat.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I had family visit my newborn daughter from Brazil. They arrived and were pleasantly surprised to the size of the Chalet. The pictures don't do it justice. Neil, the homeowner, was very acomadating and went above and beyond to make sure my family was comfortable. It snowed one night we were there and when we woke up in the morning, the driveway had already been plowed and cleaned. I would definitely recommend the Chalet to anyone! I plan on booking the Chalet with my wife in the future for a long weekend getaway.

Perfect little spot for our thanksgiving stay

  • 5 of 5

Cool A-frame house. Awesome fireplace and big deck. They make great use of space in the house and pack a lot in the house. Driveways a bit steep, as are on the stairs in the house.
