Autumn is a wonderful time to come to the cottage! The lake is surrounded by fall color, and the views of the foliage and their reflections are beautiful from the decks or on kayaks. Take a walk or a bike ride along the shoreline, through Mystic attractions, or in the woods such as up Lantern Hill. You can also visit orchards, wineries, Foxwoods entertainment or shopping, or other attractions at MysticCountry.com.

Our recent remodeling gives the cottage a clean, bright and sunny feel while keeping the character of this 1933 summer home. In the living room we added a whole wall of glass to look out at the beautiful fall colors on the lake. The decks are ideal for an outside meal, barbecuing, yoga, reading, family time, or just enjoying the serenity of nature and the lake. The cottage overhangs the edge of the lake with an expansive 20'x24' water level deck that you can kayak, canoe or swim from, and a large second story deck which makes you feel like royalty as you view nature and the lake from above.The cozy cottage is perfect for a vacationing couple (or two) or a family. It has a medium size bedroom with a queen size bed, a small bedroom with a full size bed, and another queen size bed in the large downstairs family room. Upstairs there is a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and a living room with large french doors that open onto the upper deck with magnificent views of the lake. On the lower level is the living/recreation room (including a laundry area) which opens onto the water level deck. There are two parking spaces that will fit a maximum of two cars.

Kayaks and a canoe are provided for your use at no additional charge. There is also a Huck Finn style raft to sit on or swim from or to untie and float around on. We also have old bikes, internet, DVD player, basic TV, and indoor games. If you choose, we have a paddleboard rental for just $20.

The cottage is removed from noise and bustle, and the quiet and beautiful lake makes it a really fun place to enjoy being part of nature. 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. There is also a small, organic "Earth Friendly Farm" that sells vegetables at the beginning of your street.

About Molly and Bobby

The picture above is of Bobby and his family back in 1976 being children enjoying the lake. His grandparents bought a cottage on the lake in 1955, and now three generations later the cottage is an ever more special place for us, and we very much enjoy our family's vacation each year at the lake. It means a lot to me to hear from guests about good family time and nice quality time for couples.

What makes this cottage unique

This property is perfect for those who want to take in a fantastic lake view. Located right on Long Pond, this cottage boasts a double deck that is perfect for a romantic evening and small gatherings with friends. The upper deck is accessed from large glass french doors right off of the living room. The lower deck accessed from the the family room and has direct access to the lake at lake level, good for swimming and boating.

A lakefront cottage rental above all!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I REALLY enjoyed our stay! You will have no regrets with this rental.

Bobby was very reactive to all our requests and couldn't have been a nicer person

The cottage has all the amenities you will need and then some.

The lake is very quiet and allows any kind of water sports you might want. The fishing was

great and my grandkids caught a lot of fish.

Don't wait, book your stay before it is too late!

Peaceful retreat

  • 4 of 5

Quiet spot directly on the water. Cottage is semi-rustic, but nicely appointed with furniture and kitchen supplies. If you are looking for a place to escape for a few days and paddle around in kayaks, read, and relax, this is a great option. It's close to Foxwoods and downtown Mystic - both fun places to visit. Responsiveness from the owners was great.

Beautiful view, fun boating

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our time on the lake. The decks were outstanding- our girls spent most of their time on the swings or going for boat rides with us. The 2 rooms upstairs are on the small side, the third bed is in the downstairs open area. The neighborhood is a little run down but felt safe with several other vacationers. Overall pleasant stay.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family absolutely loved everything about this cottage. It was just what we needed. The double deck right on the water provided so much peace. The cottage was clean with many amnenities. Bobby,Karen and Molly, the owners, could not have been any easier to deal with or more pleasant. If you are looking for a place to regroup with your family,kayak,fish and rejuvenate... well this is the place . Book a week,just don't take the one I want !!! Hahaha 😊
