The house is on West Hill Lake which is one of the cleanest lakes in Connecticut. The lake has an 8 horse power motor restriction, which makes it one of the most peaceful lakes and allows everyone to enjoy swimming, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, and paddle boarding safely. We are also located nearby Ski Sundown for winter skiing and the Boy Scout Camps on the lake have abundant cross country skiing trails. The lake also sustains an abundant variety of fish and is stocked by the State of Connecticut. It has Kokanee Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Small Mouth Bass, Blue Gill, Sunfish, Bullhead, & Pickerels; a record 16lb. Brown Trout was just caught this year from the lake.
We are conveniently located 40 minutes from Hartford (Bradley International Airport), 2 hrs from NYC, and 2 1/2 hrs from Boston by car.
There is a canoe and 2 kayaks available for your use. Help yourself to the Bowflex exercise machine in the basement.
Sorry, but we do not allow smoking in the house. We also do not allow underage drinking of alcohol or drug use. West Hill Lake is a very quiet place to visit and enjoy relaxation and recreation. We are only looking for guests who are going to be respectful of our neighbors and our property. If you are interested in throwing a party at our house, then keep looking for another house to rent.
