I visited Candlewood Lake in western Connecticut for my friends bachelorette party. My college roommate has a lake house on Candlewood Lake, so 9 girls flew in for a long weekend on the lake to celebrate our friend.
The lake itself is over 8 square miles worth of surface area, and it’s actually very long and skinny in most parts. There are some BEAUTIFUL homes on the lake as it’s only a little over an hour away from New York City, so people have weekend cottages on the lake.
The lake has many different “communities” around the lake, and they have parks and golf courses in the communities and you belong to a country club.
One of the nights we went out to dinner, and another night we went to the community ice cream store. It was so cute, and the whole trip was beautiful, fun, and relaxing.
