Hi, I am Monica and I am the host of Ashford Lake Cottage. I was born in England and lived there and until the age of 30. I was a social worker for people with learning disabilities. I then moved to CA, where I was an Aesthetician with my own spa for many years.
I’ve always wanted to have a quiet cottage where I could offer people healthy prepared meals, in a retreat away from the mad hustle and bustle of life.
I love being in nature and Ashford Lake is pure tranquility. I am so happy that I can and share this haven with friends, in such a beautiful location in Connecticut’s last green valley.
This light, sunny, open plan cottage is a water front property. You have the entire place to yourself. The comfortable cottage overlooks the cleanest lake in Connecticut. Surrounded by trees and the peace and tranquility of nature. This could be your dream vacation.
At Ashford Lake Cottage, you have your own private sandy beach and dock to enjoy. Sit back, with your toes in the sand and read that book you haven’t had time to read. Or burn off your breakfast in one of our kayaks in a brisk paddle around the lake. Or just saunter around the lake in the canoe or kyack, enjoying the sounds of nature. The choice is yours and you know you deserve it.
Dangle your legs into the cool, crystal clear water while you watch the sunset, cocktail in hand. Or go for a swim and cool off after a day in the hot sun.
Just want to relax after a busy, stressful 40 hour week at work? Spend all day curled up in our cozy couch and binge-watch your favorite movies on Netflix. Your visit is designed to give you the opportunity to get away from your everyday life. You don’t have to run around “doing” the local area if you want a break. Just relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the lake. You can get close to nature and rest. Life is so busy and hectic: Working, cooking and cleaning and doing laundry. This is a destination in and of it’self. You can come and rest or run around seeing the local sites, the choice is yours.
Don’t get enough time with your family? Are your kids distracted by their phones all day? Spend time playing one of the games we provide while looking at the beautiful lake in our comfy porch.
The cottage has a full kitchen, dining area, living room and TV all with beautiful views of the lake and an open, sunny floor plan. The 3 piece comfy couch is perfect for lounging around if you just want to take a break and chill.
Ashford Lake Cottage has a 3 season screened porch for you to watch the water and feel the fresh breeze. Whether you are sipping your coffee in the morning or having a glass of wine in the evening, you will love this feature.
