Charming Country House Overlooking Candlewood Lake, Beach

Bedrooms 3
Property type house


About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms

This warm and cozy country lake house provides a comfortable stay in an attractive, rustic atmosphere with lovely scenic views. Located on a quiet road in a friendly community with easy access to a variety of shops and the quaint, historic town of New Milford. Town offers charming colonial buildings, trendy restaurants and boutiques, a cinema and several convenience stores. Walk to a private, community beach with beautiful views of Candlewood Lake. This house provides a wonderful experience for singles, romantic couple-getaways and family vacations.

The backyard patio with gas barbeque grill overlooking a perennial garden and screened-in porch with lake view are wonderful for warm autumn days and evenings. Use the living room or kitchen fireplace to warm up the colder months.

Two bedrooms with one queen and one double bed upstairs, one twin bedroom with decorative fireplace downstairs. Two full bathrooms and a huge kitchen with skylight and vaulted ceilings overlooks the patio and gardens. The dining room table overlooks the porch and patio and the living room has a fireplace, skylights, television set and stereo system.

Hike the beautiful Appalachian Trail, explore Kent State Park Waterfalls, Mount Tom State Park, Bulls Bridge Falls and White Memorial State Park, and witness the one-of-a-kind New England fall foliage while strolling through nearby towns or driving scenic country roads. Gorgeous apple and pumpkin picking farms and corn mazes in the fall. Covered bridges, historic museums, wineries, flea markets and wildlife sanctuaries are also within easy reach. Venture out to the Berkshires, or stay closer to home and visit Lake Waramug and Bantam Lake.

For the winter months, ski at nearby Mohawk Mountain, or stay local for ice-fishing, snowmobiling and ice-skating on frozen Candlewood Lake.

A wonderful house for beautiful, quiet scenery and cozy relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful! Very comfortable and decorated very nice. The rooms are big and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need. The patio was very nice with a large fireplace. The home is spotless. The beach was very clean, just a short walk away. We had a wonderful time. Cheryl could not be nicer. Excellent communication. We would definitely rent this home again!

This charming house was absolutely perfect for our family vacation. There was plenty of room for 6 adults. The pictures don't do it justice - the rooms are large and beautifully decorated. The house was fully stocked with everything we needed! The screened-in porch and outdoor fireplace on the patio were delightful. A short walk brought you to the lovely community beach. Cheryl provided very helpful detailed information prior to our arrival, and was quick to respond to a few questions we had. We would love to return to this gem on our next visit to Connecticut.

Wonderful property near New Milford

  • 5 of 5

We were in the area for several days and wanted something more spacious than a hotel. This property exceeds expectations. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen has high-end appliances and every possible cooking dish you might need. Definitely recommend!

Beautiful New England Lake Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful, well-appointed home in a quiet, private community. The property is located just across the road from Lake Candlewood and a few hundred feet from the community beach and docks. I enjoy the wide use of folkstone in the home, the outdoor dining area, and the screened in porch are all wonderful. The home is professionally cleaned on a regular basis and sports plenty of spare towels for the bath and the beach. Cheryl communicated very well and answered every question I could think of with the utmost promptness. She and her property are highly recommended!

This is a nice place and nice location. Very peaceful & loved sitting down with coffee on the screened porch every morning. Lots of good restaurants nearby in New Milford. Cheryl was great and answered all questions promptly.
