About the property

3 B/r 2 Bath House On A Gently Sloping Waterfront Lot With Views Of The Lake.

This classic waterfront home sits on the shore of Candlewood Lake in the middle of New Milford Bay with western exposure. The house is approx. 1000 sq. ft and has two regular queen bedrooms with closets and dressers. Also a smaller room with upper and lower bunk beds and a dresser. There is a full bath (shower) on the main floor. The kitchen living room and dining room is open concept with knotty pine board walls, fireplace and sliding door walk out to the deck area. There is a TV in the living room with basic cable and wireless internet. The TV has been upgraded with a Samsung 40 flat screen and Blu-Ray player.

The basement has a second bath with shower, changing room, an extra refrigerator, small bar area and a washer and dryer. The deck area has beautiful views of the lake and waterfront with built in seating. The stairs from the deck lands on to a lower patio area with an outdoor fireplace. Then the walkway winds down the lawn to the waterfront patio with access stairs to the lake and ramp access to the dock. The property comes with a private swimming float that is shared with our neighbor to the south. The driveway and parking along the east side of the house can accommodate up to 3 vehicles and a boat trailer.

This cottage is nicely equipped and perfect for water sports, fishing or just a relaxing vacation. It's located just 90 miles from NYC. The near by train station makes it convenient to visit the big city.

About Neil Fitchett

My grandfather purchased this property in 1953 and built the house. It's been a vacation spot for our entire family now going into the 4th generation.

Why Neil Fitchett chose New Milford

Easy living, beautiful lake side views and access to sandy beach next door. Only 3 miles to stores and downtown New Milford. Wonderful neighbors and a great community.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is actually 1.5 lots so the waterfront is extra wide. Unlike many waterfront properties on the lake, this lot is a gentle easy slope down to the water with mowed lawn and lots of room for your water toys or just hanging out in the sun or shade.

Clean and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Little tuff getting a boat trailer in and out ,however doable .

Great location , little beach next door was great for entertaining kids.

House was clean and had everything you need for a comfortable vacation.

IF you are there for fishing, you might want to come earlier in the season or later because of the wake boats riding up and down the cove, ( instead of the main lake), with no regard to boats tied to docks making them thrash and bang against the docks..I am very surprised the locals don't do something about this, as they play very loud music till sometimes 10 pm while doing this.... overall we did enjoy our stay at Candlewood Springs and most likely come back.

Great location - Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here and had a great time. The fishing was great and the house is comfortable and has all the basic needs. I would note that we brought a boat, but had to launch from Lattins Cover in the southern end of the lake up the drive to the northern end of the New Milford arm where the house is located. It's about 8 miles to the boat launch by car and probably a little shorter by boat, but it's a good haul and had to return to Lattins Cove to take to boat out when we left. Otherwise, the house is right on the water with a dock for the boat, basic cable, heat & a/c. Very close to supermarkets, Dunkin Donuts and anything else you might need. Great place for stress relief. The owner Neil was outstanding and made sure all was good while we were there and I hope I get a chance to go back again.

Lovely waterfront home.

Husband and I celebrated our anniversary at the cottage. Neil was so kind to leave us a bottle of wine to mark the occasion. We had fun kayaking and antiquing, and loved exploring the backroads of CT. Will definitely be back someday!
