Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Billings Lake Cottage sits high above Billings Lake with beautiful views of the the lake, the islands and the opposite shoreline. There is a view of the lake from inside in the living room and also upstairs from the sheltered porch. The cottage was totally redone in 2009. On the main level there is the main bedroom, the living room with a wood burning soapstone stove, dining area, the fully applianced kitchen and the full bath. On the second floor it is set up to be a sitting area or pull out any of the 6 beds (1 full and 3 twins) and make it a second bedroom for another family with the half bath and closet and dresser.

Follow the natural rock pathway while holding onto the curved railing down to the water and there a kiddie area that was built up with rock and sand for the little ones and rock steps into the water for swimming. Also bring your boat and you can dock it at your own private dock. Or use either the paddle boat, kayaks or one of the 2 hydrobikes to go explore the islands and coves.

About Sheri Wolinski

We currently live in South Carolina.

Sheri Wolinski purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Sheri Wolinski chose Connecticut Shore

This cottage has been in Pauls family since 1947. His grandparents built it. The foundation is rocks that were handstacked by his grandfather. We remodeled it in 2009. The wall facing the driveway is the only original wall under the new siding and drywall. We built up and out from the original. We keep this cottage because of the sentimental value to us.

What makes this cottage unique

We think you will enjoy escaping from the noise and chaos of the real world. At our cottage you will be able to experience the quiet that is hard to find today. It is our peaceful place and we hope it will becomes yours.

Everything you need for real vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place for family. The house is really charming with many things included and a great balcony to read, play games, enjoy the sunrise... A lot to do at the lake with warm and clean water. We recommand it warmly!

This is an awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I bought a Powerball ticket hoping to be able to retire early and buy a property just like this! Everything was there that you need. We were there to visit our son that is in the Navy, and we had the most awesome time. I can't wait to rent the same property the next time we go visit our son. If you are looking to rent a property in Connecticut, this one is it!

A lake for making summer memories

  • 5 of 5

This is the third summer members of my family have stayed at the cottage, and there may be more visits in our future. The cottage is compact but comfortable, and the lake was cool, clean and refreshing. With air mattresses, inner tubes, hydro bikes, and kayaks, the kids always had something to keep them busy and happy. We love it here.

Very clean cottage with everything you need. I will be back.

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here and enjoyed every minute of it. All you need is a bag of clothes. Everything was provided to enjoy the lake life. Very peaceful lake and not crowded at all. Hydro bikes were fun to fish off of. Swimming hole was great with springs as you swim out from dock to cool off. We will be back for sure. Cottage is clean and well kept.

Comfy well equipped Cabin in Stunning setting

  • 4 of 5

We visted for a week in mid October. We hit the fall colors just right and it was stunning. Peacful, quiet, romantic away from it all. The cabin sits high above the lake with easy although steep access to the lake. Each morning and evening we were greetwd with stunning sunrises, sunsets and moonrises over Billings Lake. The map point shown on the website is not quite the location it is slightly south on the lake on Cedars Road. You can actually access from Billings Road to Cedar Road or Legendwoods Road to Cedar Road.

The owners and Kim who let us in were delightful. Wifi and cable worked well except for a brief xfininty outage which Sheri helped us find out about. Cell phone covearge as others have mentioned is sketchy. The landline is great for people to call you.

The decor should please the fishing enthusiast...very cute. the cabin is comfortable and well equipped eapecially with games, movies and water toys (Bicycle boats, kayakes etc) On the weekend we saw quite a few fisherman on the lake. Otherwise it was very quiet at this time of year.

If you are looking for city life or close to touristy spots this is not it, however it is not a long drive to Stonington, Mystic or Watch Point. We spent one day travelling over to Plymouth. We highly recommend Clyde's Apple Mill if you are in the area. It is the oldest operating steam powered apple mill in the US. It operates from Sept-Nov check their website.

Bed downstairs was comfortable. This cabin coukd accomodate two couples or a family of six. The kitchen woukd be small for multiple cooks but there is a grill outside. TV with cable downstairs and for movies upstairs. Soapstone wood stove available and outside firepit. Picnic table, lots of chairs etc.

Water sports, hiking, bird watching and relaxing. We had great waerger and a relaxing time. Away from it all!

Beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

This place is awesome! Taking a walk is so relaxing, hydrobiking is awesome and having fun kayaking! We saw lots of fish and a blue heron. Lots of swimming down at the end of the lake was fun too. The house has just about everything you need to cook a meal. Beds were very comfy. Loved, Loved, Loved the upstairs back porch. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, and Snacks were eaten up there almost daily. The view was awesome. Looking thru the photos was alot of fun too. Thank you for opening your home.
