Planning a family reunion, small wedding or other special event with lodging for 25-35 guests? We have the perfect solution.
Spend an idyllic vacation at Camp David with your extended family, soaking up the sun, making beautiful memories, and enjoying the spectacular views and waterfront activities at pristine Bantam Lake.
Camp David is conveniently located in northwest Connecticut, about a 2-hour drive from New York City and less than 3 hours from Boston, just south of the Berkshires but without the tourist crowds.
We have 4 beautifully furnished cottages, all with modern kitchens, baths, AC, wireless internet, and streaming wide-screen TVs. A combination of the Lakefront, Viewpoint, and Maplecrest cottages sleeps 25 guests. Our 4th cottage — Hilltop — is available for larger groups, with lodging for 9 additional guests. All guests have access to a breath-taking community room directly facing the lake.
Ideal for family reunions, vacations with kids, spiritual retreats, weddings, and other special events.
All guests enjoy free use of kayaks, inflatables, outdoor grills, fire pits and exclusive access to our 100-foot lakeshore and dock.
While we prefer to rent the entire property for family reunions and other special events, we may be able to take reservations for individual cottages, especially from May to mid-June and after mid-September.
The town of Morris and Bantam Lake are hidden gems — just miles from better-known Litchfield Village. Everything you need is within 5 miles — great supermarkets, gourmet restaurants, an art cinema, artisan bakeries, and what many consider the best ice cream in the world.
Bantam Lake is surrounded by the White Memorial Foundation, which oversees the 944-acre lake and 35 miles of hiking trails.
This historic area dates to the early 1700s and was the home of our nation’s first law school. Litchfield County offers an incredible variety of cultural attractions, scenic drives, wineries, spas, a nature museum, fine dining, and the best ice cream from a nationally renowned local dairy farm.
We have an excellent space for corporate events, business meetings, church meetings, retreats, weddings, etc. We also have a room for conferences, parties and seminars.
There are four cottages on the property — Lakefront, Viewpoint, Maplecreast and Hilltop. Each has its own modern kitchen and window AC units. Hilltop is separated by hedges from the other cottages and is reserved for the owner’s family, but can be rented out for large groups.
Lakefront and Viewpoint have 3 bedrooms each. Maplecrest has 7 bedrooms and Hilltop has 4 bedrooms. There is room for about 25 guests at Lakefront, Viewpoint and Maplecrest. An additional 8 guests could stay at Hilltop. Each cottage has a bunk bed.
Absolutely. The layout of the property encourages different families to mix and mingle. Rather than simply congregating for a ceremony, friends and family members have plenty of time to catch up and spend time with each other in a relaxed, natural environment.
Yes. Each cottage has its own outdoors grill and firepit. We provide propane and firewood. Campfires are magical with s’mores!
Bantam Market, which specializes in gourmet foods, is less than a mile away. A much larger Stop ‘N Shop is located in nearby Litchfield, just 3 miles away.
