I have had an intimate knowledge of Deer Island and Bantam Lake for 42 years as my parents used to own this house and the one next to it for a few decades. They moved in the mid 1990s but my love of the place has never waned. This is a beautiful summer cottage owned by an equally beautiful and compassionate family. The amenities at the cabin were perfect. We never needed any more than what was provided. We spent several calm mornings kayaking around the lake and it was nearly impossible to get the kids out of the water at the other times. On a rainy day, we took a great drive through some small CT and MA towns. On the nicer days, there was no reason to leave the cottage or the island. The owners of this property have put a lot of love into this cabin to make it the PERFECT get a away. Great little touches like an ice cream machine made the week a family memory we'll treasure forever!! We're already planning to carve out two weeks next summer!
