Lakefront Victorian Estate
Two hours from Boston and a little over an hour from New York is a wonderful 3650 sq. ft. Victorian Estate on the shores of Bashan Lake in Connecticut. Sleeping up to 16 people, the home features an impressive seven bedrooms and four bathrooms with adventure-packed amenities, making your stay a recreational paradise.
The first floor provides plenty of room at every corner for gathering, hosting, or entertaining, from the elegant dining room with a built-in wooden hutch or the fully equipped kitchen with forested views. An incredibly comfortable leather couch and loveseat provide space to lounge or partake in family card games or puzzles in the family room. Retreat to the sun porch off the dining room, which features a twin bed for additional sleeping space. And take comfort in the luxury of a first-floor bathroom with a shower and laundry.
The second floor is home to five delightfully cozy bedrooms; one with a set of double beds, one with a queen bed and an extra mattress underneath for small children, another with a queen bed and balcony views, a lakefront bedroom with a queen bed, and a final bedroom with twin beds and a private bathroom. The second floor shares a bright, full bathroom with a shower and double sink. As a bonus, this enchanting Estate offers a third floor that includes two bedrooms, each with sets of twin beds and a loft area with a double futon.
A large wrap-around porch provides a peaceful place to enjoy a cup of coffee or a cocktail. A water’s edge deck offers a pleasant spot to fish or watch the family swim, snorkel, and sunbathe! Two kayaks and two stand-up paddleboards are available to take into the crystal clear lake. After you dry off, enjoy the spacious, fresh-cut yard—perfect for a game of volleyball or campfires at night.

Truly Lakefront living
We loved the exterior charm and peacefulness of this property. The lake was so clean and warm during our June visit. It is a short drive into the small quant town for groceries. We did arrive in the evening so it was very difficult find the light switches as most are located on wall sconces. In addition, the host will ask to sign a multiple page rental agreement before giving the home keypad code. Also taking the trash to the town dump was a new adventure (only open certain days of the week). Lastly, home would satisfy multi family events, reunions, etc as there are more beds and furniture than shown in the images. The property did have onsite paddleboards, kayaks, etc which the family enjoyed on the quiet lake. ”
