Our newly renovated lake house is a haven for families and friends. It is located in the historic and beautiful Litchfield Hills less than 100 miles from NYC. The pristine lake welcomes swimming and boating. We have a number of small boats for your use. Next door are tennis courts and a heated swimming pool. Each bedroom has its own private bath. The public spaces include a glass grand cathedral dining room and sitting area, a large living room, a modern kitchen, a den, a deck and a hot tub. Great shopping and restaurants are a short drive away in Litchfield and the surrounding areas.
This is one of the reviews we got when the house was listed on Airbnb.
We had a fantastic experience at the lake house! Ellen is a wonderful host! It was very easy to communicate and organize our stay. Ellen was helpful with giving us advice about local shops and markets, as well as facilitating our arrival and departure. Everything that we needed was readily available, the house is well stocked with all sorts of cooking and grilling equipment, there are several little boats that are available for use, the lake is fantastic to swim in, tennis courts were great - overall we had an amazing time.
The house is great for large groups because it is sprawling, allowing for privacy and quiet, while having large central public spaces, capped off by a cathedral glass room with great views of the lake and surrounding nature. The open kitchen is fully equipped and near two dining tables that can accommodate all guests and even a few visitors. All living spaces have been refurbished within the last few years and are in excellent working order. 5 of the bedrooms have King Beds and private bathrooms. The master suite also includes an indoor hot tub. All these rooms have large flat screen TV's with cable. 1 bedroom has a double bed and two twin beds. 1 bedroom has a queen bed. These two rooms share a bathroom and are separated by a spiral staircase. There is a half bath near the common spaces. A stereo system can be used for both indoor and outdoor spaces. The outdoor hot tub is on an extensive deck and can safely accommodate 6 to 8 people. There is a new gas grill outside, a table and chairs on the deck and a large picnic table under the trees. Numerous chairs and lounges are by the lakefront, where there is also a dock.+ More
