Washington cottage description

'Little Wheel' is the guest cottage on the historic Riverdance MIll property (circa 1875) in the charming village of New Preston, CT.

The cottage has one bedroom, full bathroom with a walk in shower (a hair dryer is included), a living room with a fireplace, dining area and a fully equipped modern kitchen, You will love your stay here in the sparkle of spring bursting with daffodils and tulips, the lush green of Summer with the cool river at your feet, the glorious burst of Fall and all it's colors and the majesty of the snowy winter and a cozy fire. Sit and relax to the sounds of the water wrapping around the cottage with nice glass of wine or a cup of delicious tea. Play croquette and Horseshoes and Bocce Ball on the lawn. Fish in the river. Bike and hike (8 miles)around Lake Waramaug. Hike the Pinnacle for breathtaking views. Dine in the fine restaurants and travel the surrounding Wine Trail. This location offers wonderful hiking, biking, fishing, bird watching and skiing with fabulous shops and restaurants all in the area. This is an antique hunters paradise.
