For me, Candlewood Lake is like yoga for the soul. Once our pontoon boat leaves the dock, the stress just melts away.

I've said it many times before, my wife and I have had a boat on Candlewood Lake for the last 35 years, and it never gets old. It's the next best thing to actually owning a house on the lake.

I've taken the liberty of exploring Airbnb rental properties on Candlewood, just in case you'd like to experience this Connecticut gem. I would also highly recommend renting a boat, which you can do at either Echo Bay Marina located at 227 Candlewood Lake Road in Brookfield or Gerard's Waters Edge Marina located at 120 Old Town Park Road in New Milford. Let's take a look at some Candlewood Lake rental properties on Airbnb.
