Why come here?  To enjoy the lake.

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Salisbury, Connecticut
For the price of a motel room, enjoy a cottage on a lake. Great casual summer-fall vacation place for a small family with room for guests. MINIMUM 14 NIGHT STAY. THOUGH DAILY AND WEEKLY RATES MUST BE SHOWN, WE DO NOT RENT FOR THESE SHORT PERIODS. MONTHLY RATE REQUIRES 32 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY. SEE NOTE BELOW. Great room, master bedroom, and kitchen overlook the lake and dock 35 feet away. Great room has firestove, cozy couch corner, and dining/work table. But most eat sitting on barstools at the kitchen counter... or out on the deck (where, if you sit still the chickadees will eat sunflower seeds out of your hand).

The beautiful main lake is a mile across. The landmark 'Alvord's Tower' forms a scenic backdrop to your kids swimming off your dock. Across the lake, rent a boat, gas up your skiboat, buy bait, or have brunch...

My wife and I and two small children stayed at the cabin for one month after a big road trip adventure across the country from California. It was exactly what we needed! Our pace quickly slowed down to that of this delightful lakeside (and surrounding)...More

Additional Rate and Availability Information
I need to update our own lease and post to for Flipkey/TripAdvisor to use.
Weekly rates used to compute 2, 3 and 4 week rentals. WE DON'T RENT BY THE NIGHT, WEEKEND, OR FOR ONE WEEK. Our turn around costs are too high to make short stays worthwhile. We normally rent for 32 days or longer. We don't rent for 29, 30, or 31 day periods. TO GET THE MONTHLY RATE YOU MUST RENT FOR 32 DAYS OR MORE. At times for various reasons we provide a 2 or 3 week minimum option, which usually can start or stop on any day of the week you want.
Utility Expense Details:
-- June thru November rates include electricity, propane, Comcast Performance internet (download speed up to 25Mbps), and unlimited nation-wide landline phone service. In November, in the unlikely case propane charges are greater than 100$ per week, then the excess will be charged to your security deposit.
-- By special arrangement and qualification, we will rent for a 3 month minimum, from Dec 1, 2017 - May 31, 2018. Rent is...
