Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: Married, father of three and grandfather of six!

Why the Owner Chose West Cornwall:
This part of New England is beautiful and quaint and the cottage, brook, river, and West Cornwall town are as good as it gets.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We like the sound of the bubbling brook, the quiet of the woods, jogging along the dirt road on the other side of the Housatonic River, walking down our road to the River, visiting the river, Covered Bridge and shops in West Cornwall, kayaking on the River, hiking the nearby trails, going to the movies in Millerton, and visiting the nearby towns of Lakeville, Salisbury, Sharon, Kent, Amenia and Millerton.
