Airbnb is an online company where you're able to book a stay from local hosts in over 190 countries including unique stays right here in Connecticut.

With summer coming up fast, have you ever thought about booking a stay right on Candlewood Lake? Airbnb offers overnight accommodations at private residences all over the lake. If you're thinking about a lake stay, my advice would be to act quickly for the best selection of dates. Here are a couple of spots I found on Airbnb.
