This gorgeous waterfront cottage on Lake Lillinonah in Brookfield, Connecticut, can accommodate up to six guests at a time. The rental contains three modern, stylish bedrooms, two of which are furnished with queen-size beds, while the third has two twin beds. Each of the two bathrooms is equipped with a standing shower and tub combination, with two-sink ceramic counters and toilets next to the soft towels hanging from the racks. Towels and linens are kindly provided.

The kitchen occupies the same space as the roomy living area, which has a blue L-shaped sofa and polished dining table. This room has shining hardwood floors and a large floor-to-ceiling glass wall that opens to the private deck. Guests can prepare themselves delicious home-cooked food in the fully-equipped kitchen. In the basement, guests will find a ping-pong table and electric fireplace, perfect for warming up and playing a game or two after a packed day out on the lake.

The wrap-around deck is furnished with patio tables, chairs, and umbrellas, making it a lovely place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine while enjoying the incredible views of the surrounding woodland. From the deck, guests will find stairs that lead down to the lake, where guests can launch the two kayaks found at the rental. Guests with a car will be able to access the many local attractions, including the Upper Paugussett State Forest a short distance to the southeast.
