beautiful home in the woods
beautiful home in the woods
We recently spent a wonderful 3 days staying in this beautiful property near Candlewood lake. The house is extremely accurately represented by the photos on the web site, is located high on a hill side with gorgeous views which you can make the most of as one side of the house is almost entirely comprised of windows, breathtaking! The house has everything you need (including the opportunity to have a reflexology session which my husband did and loved!) and we comfortably slept 9 (adult and older teens). On the deck overlooking the woods, we were able to both cook out then unwind in the hot tub, bliss. We have a boat moored on Candlewood lake which was a convenient 20mins from the property but we also had a great morning exploring Bulls falls. I really have only the highest recommendation for both the property and the helpfulness of the owners.

Owner response: We are thrilled that our house, views, hot tub, and grill were enjoyed by all! Also happy that the reflexology session was a hit! The property is so close to many beautiful sights. Glad you were able to see the Bulls Bridge waterfalls and "moonscape" as well as spend time at Candlewood Lake. We truly enjoyed hosting your family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose New Milford:
This 7 1/2 acre property is on a designated Scenic Road, with many summer/ vacation homes around. We are at the top of the mountain with no homes in view! There is a walking trail on the property, and a trail to a rock ledge, and a tall pine forest where eagles nest!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you stay during the spring to fall months, you may hear and see the Eagles that live in the tall pine trees on our property! The spring flowers and the beautiful colors of the fall leaves are wonderful sights to enjoy. There is so much to see in the surrounding area, including rivers, waterfalls, mountains.
