Our lake house is situated on 1.5 acres just 250 steps to the Cove Road boat launch on beautiful Amston Lake. The lake is a pristine 188-acre retreat located in Lebanon and Hebron, CT. Swimming, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, fishing, and sunbathing are all activities you can enjoy. There are no motor boats allowed so you can enjoy all of those activities in a peaceful environment. Two beaches are located 1/2 or 1 mile away from the cottage with ample parking at both.

The space

The house is 850 square feet of pure cottage enjoyment. There are two bedrooms with a queen-sized bed in one and a full and a twin in the other. A sixth person could sleep on the sofa. There is one bathroom with a shower and a washer and dryer. There is a full kitchen and a gas grill for cooking. There is one television with cable and wifi. Our cottage doesn't have high-end finishes, but it is clean and comfortable. It's a cottage, and it feels like a cottage, especially when you are sitting on the porch swing, enjoying a cold beverage, watching the bird feeder, and reflecting on the day. Or sitting around the fire pit with friends and family, while sharing stories and roasting marshmallows. It feels like you are in the middle of the woods. One of my friends always tells me he loves to come to the cottage because it feels like camping, but with running water. We have a canoe and two kayaks for you to use, two bicycles, a few beach chairs, and some lawn games.

Guest access

Guests have access to two beaches on Amston Lake, a private lake community. They also have access to the boat launch where we maintain a canoe for their use. Life jackets and paddles provided.

Nice, clean, quiet and peaceful place to stay. Great getaway from the city. Todd responded very quickly to my email and came out the next day to turn the heat on for us since the temperature had dropped. Easy access and instructions for everything made the stay very convenient.

Beautiful place that far exceeded our expectations. The lake is gorgeous (as to be expected). In the time that we stayed, it was very quiet with little traffic from boats. This made paddle boarding that much more enjoyable. As a nice little bonus, there was an excellent assortment of birds that would serenade us while we hung out by the fire pit. The cable TV and WiFi are nice little extras that made things easier and more entertaining for us. Todd was very easy to work with and the whole transaction was seamless. We'd definitely recommend and will stay here again in the future.

Response from Todd:
I'm so glad you enjoyed the cottage and lake. Amston Lake does not permit motor boats, so it is a great place for paddle boarding or kayaking or just enjoying a peaceful environment. Hope to hear from you again soon. Todd

This place was perfect for our family of four. The cottage was big, very clean and comfortable. We felt like we were home. The beds were very comfortable. The bedrooms are on separate floors. We put the girls upstairs which allowed the adults to stay up late and not worry about waking the kids. The time that was spent at the cottage was spent mostly in the screened in area and by the fire. Very quiet and peaceful. Stores are close by. We went to brownstone park and lake compounce and both locations were easy to get to from Todd's house. Our plans fell through one day and having access to Todd's kayaks and canoe was a lifesaver. The girls stayed entertained and the lake was a short walk to the end of the street. We ended up kayaking to the beach across the lake which Todd also supplied a beach pass for, even though we didn't need to use the pass it was a good option to have. It was very easy for us to check in as well. If we decide to visit CT again we will definitely look to stay at Todd's cottage.

We enjoyed our stay at Todd's cottage. We had all the comforts of home in a quiet, secluded spot and we loved swimming and kayaking at the lake. Todd left everything we needed to have a comfortable stay. He was a kind and considerate host.
