Overview

Photos and Description of this Ledyard holiday cottage

Cottage with Beautiful Lakside Property, perfect seasonal getaway!

See our preview of the property: https://youtu.be/WOnoIeq3OBs

Autumn is a wonderful time to come to the cottage. The lake is surrounded by fall color, and the views are beautiful from the porch, deck, and kayaks. As the nights cool down, it’s the perfect time of year for campfires.

Take a walk or a bike ride along the coast, through Mystic, or in the woods such as up Lantern Hill. You can also visit orchards, wineries, Foxwoods, or other attractions at MysticCountry.com. If you choose, we have a discounted paddleboard rental for $100. The tub sits over the water and under the stars. Or enjoy a campfire with firewood provided at no charge.

The cottage feels like you are at a cabin up in Maine. It has a rustic feel and it is on a quiet lake where time seems to have been forgotten. It is literally right on the water, as you can see in the pictures. The waterfront cottage has 2 bedrooms with queen beds. It has a spacious living room with a wood stove. The large screened-in porch is a favorite place for meals overlooking the water. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready, just bring your food. There is a gas grill and two outdoor fire pits which also overlook the water.

Kayaks and a canoe are provided for your use at no additional charge. We also have horseshoes, old bikes, internet, DVD player, basic TV, a few lawn games and indoor games. If you choose, we have a discount paddleboard rental for just $20. Guests may also enjoy a campfire with firewood provided at no charge.

There is a hot tub that we can run. The owner has a small fee to do so. That being said, we consider the hot tub an amenity and not a major feature. Unlike a hotel or resort that has a team that checks the hot tub daily, our house person does so between guest stays, which can be from a few days to a week. 

Most of the time the hot tub is fine for guests to enjoy, but there are times, especially in the summer, there could be a ph change or something that may cloud the tub and may take time to clear. Last year near the end of the season we did have a mechanical issue that took a few weeks to rectify as we needed to order a part. Any hot tub fees were refunded to the guest. 

As mentioned in most cases the tub should be fine but if it is a major factor to your stay, we suggest a property that has multiple tubs or a hotel with a daily maintenance team. 

The cottage is removed from noise and bustle on the quite, beautiful lake, but it is still just a 10 minute drive from Mystic-- a favorite tourist town, 5 area wineries, the Connecticut Shoreline, and 5 minutes from Foxwoods casino.

If dates are full or if you are looking for a second rental nearby for a family and friends, please check out our other cottage on this same lake. The listing is HomeAway #3945127 to see pictures and reviews.

Book early if you need specific dates. We are happy to answer any questions you may have, email us for more information or ask us to call you back. Additional discounts available via various payment methods, and for return guests. Please inquire if interested.

Included in the lakeside house are kayks, canoe, large Huck Finn style raft swim off of or to explore the lake and the connecting lake. There are bikes to explore the area, two campfire areas and a propane grill. All are included in the price of the cottage. If you bring your fishing rod, the fishing is great.

Amazing place! A hidden gem close to everything

  • 5 of 5

I love this place. My family and I had a wonderful weekend. The cottage is beautiful, and the pictures do not do the view from the back deck justice. The cottage is very cozy and you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, but it is very close to both casinos and Mystic. Stonington Vineyard is also just a short drive away. Overall, I have no complaints and there were no issues with anything. The owner is very friendly and communicates well, and we received two text messages asking if there was anything we needed. The place is easy to find even though we arrived late at night.

I highly recommend this place, and we are already talking about coming back sometime next year.

Cozy Cottage with lots to do!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here in mid-September and the weather was terrific. We spent a day at the beach and then most of our days on Long Pond using the cottage's kayaks and canoe. We fed swans and fish, did some fishing, and swim a lot! Water was very clear and a nice sandy portion closest to the dock was nice. The cottage was a bit off the beaten path, about 6-10 miles from most things do to in Mystic, Stonington, and Groton. Very close to Foxwoods but not close enough that it is obtrusive, about a 10 minute ride. The porch was great for lunches and watching the pond at night. Overall it was very nice and we would stay again.

Absolutly Beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

The minute my husband and I walked onto this property we were blown away, what a amazing part of Ct. There was so much to do there. Kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and swimming. I cannot say enough about my four days there. I didn't want to leave in was my little piece of heaven. The owner Bob was the nicest man, very pleasant. We are looking forward to visiting next year.

A Wonderful Escape

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed here with my husband, 4 year old, 2 year old, and newborn. We had the best time! The property is clean, spacious, and directly on the water. I am so glad this place was available, we had a lovely time. The nearby area is amazing as well. Honestly, we couldn't have asked for more, except maybe to have stayed a few more nights :) Also the owners were very nice and they made sure we had everything we needed to have a great time.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Best location on the lake! What a beautiful view. My wife and I loved this cottage. It was so cozy yet spacious, and had everything we needed. There was a nice fire pit, kayaks, hot tub, and swimming area. We also went to downtown Mystic for an evening and it was wonderful. We hope to come again next year.

Feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

I had such a fun time with my two kids. It felt like a home away from home. I loved being able to go right in the lake and there were kayaks for us to use! The deck was nice to hang out on and well kept. The owners were so kind and welcoming too! Great stay!
