Accommodation Description

  • Kid-friendly
  • Private Barbecue
Perfect for a romantic getaway, this bright and beautiful renovated cottage is located near Norwich, Connecticut, overlooking Oxoboxo Lake. From the moment guests walk into the cottage, they will see a wall of windows with a million dollar view of the lake. There are views of the lake from every window on three sides of the cottage. Accommodating two guests, the bedroom offers a full-size bed, a wardrobe closet, and a nightstand with an alarm clock and lamp. The bathroom offers a stand-up shower, a toilet, and a sink. Linens and towels are kindly provided.

Upon entering, guests will find the cottage is nicely furnished inside and out. In the family room, there is a leather sectional sofa with a chaise and glass top tables, inviting guests to kick back and relax after a busy day on the lake. For entertainment, there is a TV with an Amazon Fire Stick, a stereo, and in-ceiling speakers. In the sunroom, guests have a nice chaise lounge looking out over the lake, making a great spot to get stuck into a good book. In the eat-in kitchen, guests will find everything they need to prepare themselves home-cooked meals, including nice new concrete counter tops, plenty of cabinets, a table with four chairs, a dishwasher, a stove, a refrigerator, a coffeemaker, a toaster, and a microwave.

Outside, guests have private access to a small beach right on the shores of Oxoboxo Lake, the perfect place to relax and enjoy the sunshine, but for those who are a bit more adventurous, there are kayaks available to use. There is also a large garden for some lawn games, and a barbecue for some summer cook-outs under the sun and al fresco dining. As the sun sets and it begins to get cold, there is a fire pit to light up for toasting some s'mores and swapping some stories.
