Twenty-five feet off the tip of the Candlewood Isle Lake community in New Fairfield, there sits a small island. On that island sits a small house that's been boarded up for several years.

Since September 2000, I've lost count of the many times I've attempted to access information online. When I was about ready to give up, I finally discovered a members-only Facebook page and asked, "Does anyone have any information on 'The Island House' off the tip of Candlewood Isle? The responses I received were fascinating and included a story about an amphibious car! Before you scroll down to learn more about the Candlewood Lake island house, I invite you to check out a YouTube slideshow of my lake photos set to the music of Louie Armstrong's, 'What a Wonderful World.'
