Magical... breathtaking... a great place to relax.
If you want to kick back away from it all, here you go.
Listen to fish jump and birds sing in serene tranquility.
The house is large and spacious with room for everyone. High cathedral ceilings, a screened porch and giant deck on a private, secluded lake with 300' of lakefront. No motorboats or jet skis. Big living room, dining room, family room and bedrooms, two baths, laundry and fully complemented eat-in kitchen with high-end appliances.
If you're looking for a quiet place surrounded by nature to spend time with family and friends without being disturbed by neighbors the setting is ideal. Lounge in the hammock. Paddle in the canoe. Go for a dip in the lake, take a hike, read a book or play a board game. It's all here ... without having to get in the car.
The setting is a quiet, private community on a dead-end dirt road, so there's no traffic to speak of. It's just you and nature. The neighboring houses are hidden behind trees. The view from the deck across the lake is all forest. The loudest thing you're likely to hear is the mail truck or a beaver's tail thump. It's very dark at night and great for star-gazing.
The house is large with plenty of room for everyone to find a quiet corner on their own to zone out, read a book or listen to music without disturbing others. Even on a rainy day there's lots of space for everyone to find a quiet spot to play cards or get out a board game. A variety of diversions are provided. The eat-in kitchen sits four and is fully-outfitted with high-end appliances and utensils.
The Master Bedroom has a "king-size" bed (actually, two twins joined side-by-side to form a "king size"). The adjoining upstairs bedroom has a single bed and a roll-out single trundle bed. The downstairs bedroom has a queen-sized bed, and the downstairs family room has a fold-out queen sofa-bed. Altogether, the house sleeps eight.

There is a canoe at the house for paddling and fishing. The landing at the house by the dock has a sandy bottom for lake access. 300 yards down the road there is another lake access point by the dam. A beach pass is provided for the town beach at Candlewood Lake. Squantz Pond State Park is also nearby. (Both 10 minutes away in opposite directions.) Kent Falls State Park has swimming and hiking as well, and New Milford and Kent have town centers that are great for restaurants, shopping, movies, art galleries and more.
There are many hiking areas nearby, including the newly opened Great Hollow Nature Preserve just down the road on the Sherman-New Fairfield border. Great Hollow abuts the Michael Ciaiola Conservation Area in New York State and has great hikes with scenic views. Wear comfortable shoes with support and bring water and snacks.
Restaurants, movies, bowling, golf and more all located conveniently nearby. Please see the guide section we've posted on AIRBNB for more details and recommendations. The pizza place in town, Amore, is 10 minutes away for pick up and there's a charcoal BBQ in the backyard.
Easy day-trips include NYC for sightseeing or a show, or you can head west/north to Storm King, Dia-Beacon and the Innisfree Gardens. The last two are personal favorites and offer relatively flat ground for easy walks.
