Recent Connecticut property reviews

  • So pleased to have visited ......!!

    "Our group of five old friends (three from the West Coast of Canada and two from the UK) descended upon Forbes House and made this our base for relaxing and exploring Connecticut for a week after attending a wedding at nearby Washington. Despite staggered arrival times, our hostess Sheila was there to welcome all of us and thereafter was readily accessible by phone to answer any questions we had. Her beautiful character home was everything we had anticipated from reading about it on the VRBO website - and more. How difficult it is to describe the comfort and warmth of a home well-lived in through the ages that embraces its visitors. The clean spacious rooms, comfortable beds and linens, a well-stocked and equipped kitchen that begs to be the hub of group meal preparation amid laughter and conversation, thoughtful and pleasing decor with seating areas to spend quiet time, modern bathroom fixtures, and a barbeque equipment cupboard to excite and stimulate the outdoor eating senses - and we put the deck to good use in this way a great deal of the time. It was difficult to tear ourselves away from the house to carry out plans for visiting the nearby charming small towns and villages, exploring beautiful country lanes (the narrow and sometimes unpaved route from Kent through Bull Bridge to New Preston is a wonderful drive), and venturing further afield to Hartford and New Haven, both easily reachable within 90 minutes or so. We were unfortunately unable to secure a reservation for dinner at the highly rated Community Table restaurant, but delicious ice cream at nearby Bantam was easily obtained and oft repeated. A memorable week for all of us was made possible by Sheila's careful attention to detail in providing for her guests all the necessary comforts to create a welcoming and relaxing environment."

  • Quiet and comfortable

    "I stayed in Mark's lake house for a week in October while in the area on business. Mark was super attentive and helpful, and the house is great. it provided a clean, quiet and comfortable retreat after our busy days. I especially enjoyed having my coffee on the deck in the morning looking out on the mist rising off the lake. I was thrilled one morning to see an eagle swoop by in the sunrise. I would love to return someday with more time to enjoy and relax."

  • Wonderful home, peaceful setting, amazing views

    "We have just returned from a week staying in this lakefront home and we can not say enough about our stay. The house has a casual, comfortable, lakeside cabin-feel, has wonderful views and is set just steps from the lake. It is a relaxed setting, comfortable for all-- our dog could not have been happier with the well-kept, fenced-in yard --- we are not sure who was happier during this trip-us, or our dog! It is difficult to find a spot like this-we will be back! Thank you for sharing your home with us!"
