About the property

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.

About Sheri Wolinski

We currently live in South Carolina.

Sheri Wolinski purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Sheri Wolinski chose Connecticut Shore

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.

What makes this cottage unique

We think you will enjoy escaping from the noise and chaos of the real world. At our cottage you will be able to experience the quiet that is hard to find today. It is our peaceful place and we hope it will becomes yours.

Comfy well equipped Cabin in Stunning setting

  • 4 of 5

We visted for a week in mid October. We hit the fall colors just right and it was stunning. Peacful, quiet, romantic away from it all. The cabin sits high above the lake with easy although steep access to the lake. Each morning and evening we were greetwd with stunning sunrises, sunsets and moonrises over Billings Lake. The map point shown on the website is not quite the location it is slightly south on the lake on Cedars Road. You can actually access from Billings Road to Cedar Road or Legendwoods Road to Cedar Road.

The owners and Kim who let us in were delightful. Wifi and cable worked well except for a brief xfininty outage which Sheri helped us find out about. Cell phone covearge as others have mentioned is sketchy. The landline is great for people to call you.

The decor should please the fishing enthusiast...very cute. the cabin is comfortable and well equipped eapecially with games, movies and water toys (Bicycle boats, kayakes etc) On the weekend we saw quite a few fisherman on the lake. Otherwise it was very quiet at this time of year.

If you are looking for city life or close to touristy spots this is not it, however it is not a long drive to Stonington, Mystic or Watch Point. We spent one day travelling over to Plymouth. We highly recommend Clyde's Apple Mill if you are in the area. It is the oldest operating steam powered apple mill in the US. It operates from Sept-Nov check their website.

Bed downstairs was comfortable. This cabin coukd accomodate two couples or a family of six. The kitchen woukd be small for multiple cooks but there is a grill outside. TV with cable downstairs and for movies upstairs. Soapstone wood stove available and outside firepit. Picnic table, lots of chairs etc.

Water sports, hiking, bird watching and relaxing. We had great waerger and a relaxing time. Away from it all!

Beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

This place is awesome! Taking a walk is so relaxing, hydrobiking is awesome and having fun kayaking! We saw lots of fish and a blue heron. Lots of swimming down at the end of the lake was fun too. The house has just about everything you need to cook a meal. Beds were very comfy. Loved, Loved, Loved the upstairs back porch. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, and Snacks were eaten up there almost daily. The view was awesome. Looking thru the photos was alot of fun too. Thank you for opening your home.

wonderful get away

  • 5 of 5

This is a very beautiful home set high above a quiet lake. The house was extremely clean and well cared for with most of the essentials anyone would need. It's especially nice that the linens were provided, there is a washer and dryer, and the place is air conditioned (during our terribly hot week). The abundance of water craft made it so enjoyable for all age groups.

The only 2 down sides: It is definitely not handicapped accessible. If you want to get down to the lake there are over 70 stone steps to reach the bottom. Going down is easy - coming up , especially on a hot, humid day, is another matter, especially for older people or those with respiratory issues or bad knees. This was clear in the description of the home and should be taken seriously.

Also, the cell phone service is very spotty, or nonexistent, depending on your carrier. There is a house phone for emergencies.

All in all, it was a wonderful vacation for all of us, ages 8 - 70. There is a lot to do in the area as well if you have a rainy day.

Beautiful view & fun lake toys

  • 5 of 5

As depicted, recently remodeled cottage sits on a cliff overlooking beautiful lake. Lots of lake toys, including life jackets for children, (hydro-bikes were great fun), and bicycles for seeing the neighborhood. Fully furnished kitchen, incl BBQ tools. Wi-fi included & worked great, but no (Sprint) cell phone reception. Safe, but steep, walkway down to lake. Short drives to coastal attractions, Rhode Island, and Foxwood.

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.
