EAST HAMPTON, Conn. (WTNH) — Have you ever wanted to rent your own private island?
Now is your chance to experience this quaint, exclusive stay with friends and family in East Hampton this summer.
Laurel Island, a private island nestled on Lake Pocotopaug, was named among the best private island vacations in the Wall Street Journal and the most popular Airbnbs in Connecticut by the Hartford Courant.
The 5-acre rustic island includes a main lodge and five distinct guest houses: an A-frame guest house, bay cabin, chalet, deckhouse, and captain’s cabin — sleeping 39 people in total. While each is a short distance from one another, they also offer their own inclusivity.
Amenities are provided to ensure fun throughout the stay; guests can play various sports like volleyball, disc golf, bocce, giant Jenga, or basketball. A firepit and relaxation tools like hammocks, floats, and picnic tables are on-site.
Aside from its sunset views, the island also offers an eco-friendly atmosphere with off-the-grid solar energy, composting toilets and food scraps, recycling bins, and biodegradable products to be lake-friendly.
