Why Tara Molloy chose New Fairfield

We take great pride in maintaining our home. We use it part of the year with our own family. It is conveniently located to the ISLE beach and clubhouse which makes it feel like a real vacation. If a parent has to work, the commute is doable from the Southeast or Purdys train station. Both train stations are about a 20 minute drive.They have daily parking and it's a manageable amount of time on the train. This is a wonderful affordable way of experiencing all the amenities of a lake front water vacation!

What makes this house unique

The house is comfortable and clean with plenty of areas for adults and young people to find enjoyment. Our bunk room comes with a play tent and the house comes with a beautiful work station in master bedroom ideal for checking e-mails and doing work (if necessary!). There is plenty of storage and room if you come with kayaks/bikes. There is a launch for all paddle boards and kayaks down at the beach where the boat slips are located. We own two inflatable paddle boards that are available for your use- they are located in the garage.

Great for families!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four with two young children had a lovely stay at this property. The weather was great, so we didn't end up spending much time inside, but if you do, you'll find a number of games, books and crayons/coloring books available to entertain your kids. The bunk room has two huge "bean bag" type chairs that they loved and plenty of space.

A couple of hiccups, not necessarily the owners' fault, but they did impact our stay until we got the kinks worked out: the cleaners had done a good job overall but missed a dishwasher full of dirty dishes and some grill stuff left out (once we let Tara know, they came back immediately); the central A/C froze up on the second day of a major heat wave, but Tara called for maintenance immediately and once fixed it was great; and the Internet was out for a time--troubleshooting took a bit of back and forth to determine that it was a service outage.

Overall, a solid rental home with conscientious owners who want you to have a great vacation experience on Candlewood Isle!

This was a wonderful classic lake home in an ideal private community.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this beautiful classic home in a private community overlooking the lake. The house had abundant natural daylight streaming in thru picture windows on both the first floor living areas as well as the master suite on the 2nd floor. Plenty of outdoor deck area as well as beautifully landscaped property. Very quite and private. Our family had come in search of fall foliage and we were not disappointed. The autumn colors were fabulous and the reflection of the distant trees in the calm lake water was spectacular. The quiet neighborhood had a common community center with tennis court, sandy beach and swimming area (about five houses down the street). Too cold for swimming in October, but tennis next to the lake was quite enjoyable. This was a perfect embarkation point from which to travel back roads to quaint communities throughout the countryside such as Kent, New Canaan, New Milford, Litchfield and a host of other communities on the Leaf Peeping tour. Thank you to our host Tara for ease of communication and responsiveness.

The journey is the destination!!

Nostalgic Lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The home is large. Plenty of room. We rented a pontoon boat from the marina and it helped us really enjoy Candlewood lake . It's a beautiful area . The home is not right on the lake, but right across the street, and it's a very nostalgic looking location. This is a great place for families, especially with children. Elderly would have a little bit of a hard time with the stairs getting up from the parking on the street to the house. Overall it was very nice.

Very charming home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Myself and family stayed in Tara's home this week. It was a charming updated home. Despite our Rainey weather this week we enjoyed sitting by the dining table playing games and watching the storm outside the beautiful windows. Lovely view of the lake and easy walk to the beach. Enjoyed having dinner at the local restaurant icon and amazing homemade ice cream shop. Would love to come back again when visiting Connecticut.

Family from Southern California (happy to have different weather than home)

I would say that there is a climb to the front door for someone that might have a hard time climbing stairs)
