Lake Hayward Charming Lakeview Cottage
East Haddam Central Connecticut
Chicopee, MA

Fall week-end stay!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at this sweet cottage Oct 4th-6th. It was a get away week-end for my husband and myself for our Anniversary. The cottage in clean, nicely painted and decorated, wrap around enclosed porch and a nice back yard. The beach is just down the street. We took an amazing carriage ride around the lake provided by Allegra Farm-just up the road. We got over to see the show at Goodspeed Opera House. Great restaurants in the area. Priam winery is very close and a nice spot to visit. Summers would be great at this place with children or just a couple. There is the lake, beach, Mystic Seaport and Aquarium, Gillette Castle, Essex Train and Boat Ride and so much more. Just a a relaxed country area, people were very nice around there.

From the Owner

The property has a very unique 'L' shaped front porch with relaxing views. It also has a huge living room for all to gather in. The added benefit of being in a few minutes walking distance to the beach is great! The association puts on many social functions for children and adults throughout the summer that are so much fun!
