Kent house description
Exceptional Colonial-era house with numerous additions, with all modern amenities for vacation rental, can easily accommodate 8 guests. A sunny outdoor terrace, overlooking the pool, has 2 tables which accommodate 10 for dinner. Beautifully furnished with antiques, this is a home which you can (briefly!) call your own.
Relax and enjoy the sunny terrace, swimming pool, flower beds, vegetable garden; walk in the private fields and woods (130 acres) which include a pond and 2 streams or wander through the nearby State parks or private land trust properties. If you like more activity, the Appalachian Trail can be accessed within a few miles of the house, kayak and bicycle rentals are available in Kent, kayak and canoe rentals and fly-fishing outfitters are located 15 minutes away in Cornwall Bridge, CT.
Kent is known for its beautiful art galleries and one-of-a-kind boutiques and excellent restaurants. Music Mountain is 30 minutes away if you like Classical music in a lovely setting. Litchfield Jazz Festival (August) is also 30 minutes away in Goshen, CT.
A great base for exploring Litchfield County's charming small towns, lovely scenery, outdoor recreational opportunities and numerous art venues, Kent is a 2 hour drive from NYC, a 3 hour drive from Boston and is 20 minutes from Metro-North train stations to NYC.
