Overview

Photos and Description of this Ledyard holiday cottage

There are still some weekdays in October. Rates have been lowered for a last minute getaway.

Autumn is a wonderful time to come to the cottage! The lake is surrounded by fall color, and the views of the foliage 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, or other attractions at MysticCountry.com.

The cottage overhangs the edge of the lake with an expansive 20'x24' water level deck that you can swim or kayak from, and a large second story deck which makes you feel like royalty as you view nature and the lake from above. Both decks are ideal for an outside meal, barbecuing, yoga, reading, family time, or just enjoying the serenity of nature and the lake. Our recent remodeling has kept some of the character of this 1933 summer home. The cozy cottage sleeps up to six people, making it 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 always areas on the deck to be in the shade if needed. There are two small 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 $40.

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.

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 #367207 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.

Lovely lake cottage

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at the cottage with my 2 kids and we really enjoyed it! The view over the lake is beautiful and it was absolutely peaceful and quiet. We found everything to be clean and comfortable and the internet worked perfectly. We had a chilly, rainy day during our stay and the heat worked very well, keeping us warm and cozy. The place is also well stocked with games for a rainy day.

It is a very easy drive to Mystic and we had a great dinner out there and visited a wonderful toy store.

Perhaps some of the apolstry and rugs could use a deep cleaning or sprucing up, but overall I highly recommend the cottage as an affordable place to stay for families.

Clean, plenty of room for 2, convenient to dock

  • 4 of 5

1. Biggest drawback was lack of sunlight for the outdoor areas

2. Would have been nice to have more than network TV stations. Not premium channels but at least CNN, CNBC, ESPN

Lovely place, which is unclean

  • 2 of 5

I would have liked to give the place a much higher rating, but I found the place very unclean. The carpet and other upholstery seemed be covered with remnants of animal hair. Each time we slept we felt the terrible mattress, which was not only uncomfortable but also smelly. The lower level windows did not have blinds either. In addition to the feeble she internet service, the cable television options were extremely limited.

Lastly, inspite of being about 5-7 miles from the mystic museums and restaurants, it is not dramatically cheaper and as such there is nothing in walking distance.

Owner's Response: Dear Haresh, We are sorry to hear that you were not thrilled with your visit to the cottage, as we like to ensure that our guests are comfortable and happy throughout their stay. We make every effort to accommodate our guests, and this includes allowing pets at the cottage. Although we are diligent with cleaning, we are not always able to catch every hair. We do, however, urge our guests to immediately contact us with any concerns they may have upon arrival, so we can remedy them and ensure the rest of their stay is pleasant. There are definitely advantages to being at a hotel in town, but we offer a different experience. We cater to couples and families who want to be away from it all and part of nature, or explore nature and the lake. You might feel like you are almost off the grid, even though we are only 5-10 minutes from Foxwoods and Mystic.

Beautiful Views

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 nights for our anniversary in September and couldnt have been happier. The home is just as pictured with beautiful views from both decks. We enjoyed kayaking and canoeing around the lake, fishing off the floating dock and visiting nearby parks. We were lucky enough to see the Harvest moon rise over Long Pond right from the back deck. One of the best features in my opinion was how quiet and peaceful it was. Everything was perfect. The owner and cottage concierge were very friendly and easily available. I would recommend this to all who love the outdoors and are looking to enjoy all that Ledyard and nearby Mystic has to offer. Even the dog had fun!

Lovely setting

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the quiet and peaceful setting on the lake. The cottage supplied all the necessities for a pleasant stay. Being close to Mystic was a plus. We were surprised that there was a washer and dryer at the cottage. Overall a great place to stay.
