About Richard Sementilli

I am a conscientious, responsive owner who is so proud to share this truly one of a kind property. I grew up in the Westchester County NY and I currently live in NYC. I love the contrast between the beauty and culture of New England with the proximity and excitement of NYC.

Richard Sementilli purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Richard Sementilli chose Candlewood Lake

Last year I found this amazing place on Homeaway. I immediately booked a brief two day stay but, within the first few moments upon my arrival, I knew that one day I wanted to buy this property. The setting is unbelievable, and the house itself is so perfectly charming. I then booked another two week stay this past July (2012) and I never wanted to leave! I ended up buying this property this September. I just had my family up to see this place for the first time this past weekend and they absolutely fell in love with as did I. I love how private, quiet and secluded the location is, but then it is just minutes away from all the things you need.

What makes this cottage unique

The house itself feels like its an old New England rustic cottage but in fact it has all the modern creature comforts that everyone wants. The previous owners had decorated and furnished the home so perfectly to match the setting and the style of the home, so I therefore did not change a thing!

One of my favorite features of this house is waking up in the morning surrounded by views of the lake from every direction - literally. If you look straight, you see water, look left, you see water, look right you see water. It feels like you are actually on a large yacht anchored on shore. It's just spectacular!

Our favorite place!

  • 5 of 5

Of all the places we have traveled to in the world, we find ourselves coming back to the Kozy over and over again. This was our fourth and longest stay in the last 4 years. We stayed for an entire week this time and it still wasn't long enough . The house and location itself are beyond compare. True peace and serenity are what you will find in surroundings that look like something out of a fairy tale, literally. Richard is always a warm and responsive host and we appreciate him sharing this special place with us and others. We're about to book for another week this fall. Can't wait to return!

The perfect romantic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is exactly as advertised and Richard was amazing. The house has everything you could need plus some fantastic extras. It is quiet and isolated yet very close to civilization. Looking forward to staying here again. Soon, hopefully.

Great rental property!!!

  • 5 of 5

This little gem is perfect for a family of four or less. Right on the water. Quiet. Just perfect for decompressing and relaxing. The movie screen was great for night movies. The kayak was awesome as well. The deck furniture is the best on the lake and perfect for sunning and laying out.

I'd give this property more stars if available!

Great Place for Family of Four

  • 5 of 5

We rented Richard's "Kozy Cabin" for the 2017 Memorial Day weekend and were very pleased.

The house was well furnished and comfortable for our family of four. The views are great from any vantage point within the house.

Richard was well organized with instructions about accessing and using the house which made for an easy arrival and departure.

Our two children enjoyed catching sun fish off of the dock during the day and if it wasn't for the cool water temperature in May they would have enjoyed swimming.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our weekend get away to this gorgeous lake house. The view was incredible. We even extended our stay! Richard was great, very responsive. We will absolutely be back again.

We enjoyed taking the kayak and canoe out on the water and taking a dip in the hot tub afterwards. The kitchen was great, we cooked dinner and played board games on the porches in the evenings.

Could not have asked for more. It really exceeded my expectations! Such a peaceful, beautiful place. Thank you Richard :)
