  • Totally Unique...Totally Perfect!!

    "We stayed at the Spirit Horse Farm for two nights. How do I even explain this place? From the minute you step into the barn, you are in awe of it and of everything in it. The amazing handiwork, the open space, the incredible beauty that is Spirit Horse Farm. We had the best time. The beautiful farm setting in the beautiful area of Kent, CT. We have always loved the area with the hiking trails and Bulls Bridge and Kent Falls so it seemed a perfect place to go. It was beyond anything we could imagine. Thank you to Guy for making our stay wonderful. The many tasty treats he left us, his friendly personality and if you needed him for anything he was right there. We loved watching the chickens and roosters, the beautiful horses and the elusive peacock. Every once in a while, Guy would release the hundred or so doves and they would zoom around the huge barn we were staying in as if putting on a show. I would totally recommend this place to anyone and everyone. Great for a small intimate gathering as we had and we can see it would be amazing for a large gathering. We have booked more days in October to see the fall foliage and hope to bring more family members. The Spirit Horse Farm is everything the photos show and tons more. Thank you for providing such a slice of unique and for letting us live in a dream world for a few days. LOVE LOVE LOVE Spirit Horse Farm! This will be our destination for many more return visits."

  • The Perfect Spot to Connect with Family

    "My two adult children (+ one fiance) and I stayed here over Labor Day weekend. Our host greeted us warmly and was very helpful with directions, too! It was the perfect spot to re-connect with my adult children who live on the East Coast. The apartment is clean, spacious and well located. Plenty of seating to watch TV and the kitchen was well stocked for when we wanted to cook (note the coffee shop is across the street!). We just loved the town--cute restaurants within walking distance, farmer's market on the weekends and just very picturesque. This was my first experience with VRBO. After such a positive experience, I look forward to more vacation rentals by owner!"

  • Charming, relaxing, but limited beach amenities

    "We just spent 16 nights in this charming cottage. The photos and descriptions in the HomeAway/VRBO listing are accurate, and the owners have furnished the place very nicely. The patio is especially nice, for morning coffee and evening outdoor meals (with fresh herbs available in pots). The kitchen is very well stocked with pots, pans and everything you could possible need for cooking. The shed has lots of beach-related supplies. The WiFi is unusually fast, with download speeds of 27 Mbps. The neighborhood is great for walking and folks are friendly. There are a few negatives, however. Be aware that the cottage is in the Cedar Crest Association, not the Chapman Beach Association. You only have access to the Cedar Crest beach, which is approximately 35 steps wide and 9 steps deep, at mid-tide; in other words, it’s a very small beach space. We ended up going to the Hammonasset State Park beach, which is 12 miles away. We have an annual pass to the park, but if you don’t have the pass, it costs $9/day if you are a CT resident and $15/day if a non-resident ($13/$22 on weekends). Also, there is no gas grill, just the charcoal Weber version and the television is not HD and is pretty much basic cable, which is unusual for a rental at this price level. Overall, we had a fun and relaxing experience and the owners were easy to work with."

  • Perfect place for a Family Rreunion

    "It would be hard to find a more lovely and historic setting to reunite 4 generations than this Connecticut home. From the moment you step out of your car you feel at home. The feeling continues as you move into Erle's magical house. The lovely entry, the delightful kitchen, looking towards the "Old Toy Factory" across the road, the large living room and the cozy den provide places for families to either be together or separate for reading and other activities. This property has a large yard with a river running through it and plenty of room to roam or just sit and enjoy the sounds and sights of the Connecticut country side. If you look into the history of the neighborhood you will discover even more things to make your stay memorable. Thank you Erle for providing such a wonderful place for our family reunion."
