Billings Lake Waterfront Cottage & RV hookups.

Billings Lake Waterfront Cottage & RV hookups.

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 14, 2014
Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Billings Lake Cottage sits high above Billings Lake with beautiful views of the the lake, the islands and the opposite shoreline. There is a view of the lake from inside in the living room and also upstairs from the sheltered porch. The cottage was totally redone in 2009. On the main level there is the main bedroom, the living room with a wood burning soapstone stove, dining area, the fully applianced kitchen and the full bath. On the second floor it is set up to be a sitting area or pull out any of the 6 beds (1 full and 5 twins) and make it a second bedroom for another family with the half bath and closet and dresser.

Follow the natural rock pathway while holding onto the curved railing down to the water and there a kiddie area that was built up with rock and sand for the little ones and rock steps into the water for swimming. Also bring your boat and you can dock it at your own private dock. Or use either the canoe, paddle boat, kayak or one of the 2 hydrobikes to go explore the islands and coves.

Bring your RV for another family or for the kids to sleep in and hook it up to water and electric in the parking area, also with great views.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5
The title says it all. My close friend and I have been taking our children on group vacations for years, and this was definitely one of our best trips ever. We spent a long weekend at the lake with our five teenagers, and everyone had a fabulous, relaxing time. The cottage is just lovely, with everything you could possibly need provided, and the upstairs space easily accommodated all of the kids. We loved hanging out on the upstairs, covered balcony, with its comfy furniture and stunning views of the lake. The lake itself was, of course, a big hit -- the kids loved the hydrobikes, canoe, and kayak, and the adults loved reading on the dock, with our feet in the water, enjoying the tranquility. We are already discussing doing it again next summer; when you find some place that five teenagers can agree upon, it is a keeper!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful cottage with us. And a special thanks to Kim for taking such good care of us.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
Simply a wonderful place to stay. We loved having morning coffee on the balcony and watching the morning mist fade from the lake as the sun crawled over the eastern hills. I kayaked around the lake every morning in serene bliss. I am not a bird expert but I believe a Great heron and a Cormorant were my only companions at such an early hour. Our kids, aged 5 and 2 spent hours every day in the wading pool constructed down by the dock and evening canoe rides with the family were capped off with toasted marshmallows by the fire. It is just minutes away from everything that we missed about Connecticut. 20 minutes to Mystic Aquarium and Seaport. 15 minutes to the beach. We even got a night out with out the kids and dined (adult style) and danced at the casino 5 miles away. Our last night there we ate lobsters at Skippers Dock and were treated to a beautiful sunset over the ocean. It is hard to believe you can get away from it all and still be so close to everything. Every place is what you make it. All we can say is that this place gave everyone in our family great memories. Hopefully when we come back up next year we can stay here again.

A great getaway spot

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was wonderful-it was clean, modern, well-stocked with everything you might need, and very inviting. Being able to eat breakfast on the balcony looking over the lake was a great way to start the day. We loved riding the hydro-bikes around the lake, which was never crowded. It's not far from Mystic, which is a really interesting place to visit. The owners were very friendly on the phone and their cousin who lives nearby was extremely helpful (when we realized that we had left a piece of luggage behind and she had it shipped to us). I highly recommend this cottage.

Perfect romantic get-away! <3

Perfect romantic get-away! &lt;3

We were graciously accommodated at the last minute for an anniversary get-away. The cottage itself appears to be newly remodeled,is decorated warmly, was perfectly clean and very comfortable. It has a lovely 2nd floor balcony overlooking the real attraction: the pristine lake. Although the lake is ringed with cottages the property feels very private. There are water bikes, a pedal boat, a canoe and kayak for exploring the water - we were mostly content to relax and take in the view - especially the sunrise over the water and the amazing night sky with so little "light pollution." So very grateful for a truly romantic weekend - but we will be back next year with the kids since it seems a great place for family fun as well!

House was in good shape. Lake was clean and beautiful! We would rent it again! Quaint and quiet cabin that was just the right size for a family of 4!

An Absolute Treasure

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful find! You’ll drive into the woods to find the house nestled in the back atop a cliff. The home was spic and span smelling of freshness. The floors, appliances, walls and even décor is all brand new and thoughtfully chosen. We wanted a restful getaway looking of cooking with fresh local produce and lazy days on the lake. This delivered. The kitchen is well stocked with every appliance there are nearby farms, markets, even home-made ice cream shops. We spent hours on the lake with the multiple water toys that come with the house. There were water bikes, a canoe, paddle boat and even floats to lie around on. We barbequed and sat at the picnic table overlooking the lake, had brunch on the 2nd floor balcony watching the sun rise and took in the last bits of sun in the evening laying on the large rocks at the edge of the water. Neighbors were so friendly and helpful often stopping and chatting as we passed each other on the lake or passing us as we hiked through the woods. The lake was definitely large enough to keep yourself busy and it was never overrun by crowds and tourists. This is'nt a touristy area rather it’s a lovely community of regular vacation home-owners. My nephews came to visit and had no problem wading into the water for their first lake experience ever. The home owners have built a mock beach at the water’s edge such that kids can walk in for about 6 feet of a protected walled off area where the water only comes up about 2 feet and the bottom is covered with sand. The 2 year old loved to just splash around that area and count the fish. We took them out on every water toy there and they had a blast! They seemed much less scared then when they are at the beach because there’s no fearful waves or as the 4 year old said…no sharks! That being said when it rained for two days straight there was enough close by to keep a 2 & 4 year old busy indoors. There’s the kid arcade in Foxwoods and Aquarium in Mystic. Everything seems to only be 20minutes away, even Rhode Island and the popular Misquamicut beach near Westerly. We spent a wonderful night there at the drive in watching Goonies after the kiddy rides and waterslide park across the street. Watch Hill had beautiful homes and Mystic had their famous delicious pizza and unique boutiques. I recommend it highly though I hope that doesn’t mean that it’ll become the next hot spot to visit because it’s nice and peaceful just the way it is!

Location

From the Owner

This cottage has been in Pauls family since 1947. His grandparents built it. The foundation is rocks that were handstacked by his grandfather. We remodeled it in 2009. The wall facing the driveway is the only original wall under the new siding and drywall. We built up and out from the original. We keep this cottage because of the sentimental value to us.
