Roger's Lake in Old Lyme is an interesting area. The lake does allow power boats and it's large enough for sailing activities. The homes vary in age with the highest density being to the southwest side of the lake as you can see here on Bing Maps: http://binged.it/11wIvZz
Older homes have their challenges and you have to look at them individually to see what they have in terms of favorable topography for gravity footing drains vs sump pumps. The other issue needing study is the high density vs the well and septic systems. Some of the properties are seasonal cottages.
