House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
A unique property on an acre of land in NW CT. Very peaceful location. It's a great balance of access to water sports and access to pristine nature.
This is a very unique property. It is a converted ice house (originally built in 1840s and converted in 1940s) complete with thick oak-paneled walls, fieldstone fireplace and lofts. It sits on an acre of wooded property and is very private. It is a short walk (3-5 mins) to the waterfront on the East Side of third bay of Highland Lake just down the road. The waterfront area is a peaceful little piece of forested land right on the water with a dock and swimming area. If you have a motorboat, you can tie it up safely at the dock. You can also launch our canoe or sailboat from there.
It's the best of both worlds - you can swim and paddle all day but then unplug from the lakeside hubub, return to the woods in the evening and relax with the sound of crickets and toads.
The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook & enjoy your meals. There is a gas BBQ on the outdoor deck.

I am a commercial producer working in NY and Los Angeles. I grew up in CT and spent my summers on Highland Lake. My family is still on the lake and I get back home every chance I get. It is my favorite place in the world.
