Recent Washington 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."

  • Perfect Fall Retreat

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Wits End Farm. The location was perfect for viewing the fall colors and exploring antique shops and flea markets in nearby Waterbury, Southbury, Washington, and New Milford. It was a great blend of convenience and quiet in a picturesque setting. (note: though proximate to many sights / towns, use of an automobile is a necessity) The accomodations exceeded expectations...which were high to begin with. The house was beautiful and comfortable, refined and inviting. Bedrooms and bathrooms were well-appointed. And the layout was equally suited for couples and families. Breakfast was delicious, varied, and made with organic ingredients. Combined with insightful conversation and local recommendations, it was the perfect start to each day. Lastly, I can't say enough about the owner, Joan. Her gracious hospitality and flexibility in accomodating our schedule were laudable. Our only regret was having to leave...but we will return. I highly recommend."

  • Lovely Cottage, Lovely Area

    "My husband and I run a B&B in the Catskills. We wanted to get away for a few nights to relax, unwind, and decompress. This Cottage was the perfect choice for us; it met all of our desires and needs. The Cottage itself is absolutely darling and full of charm. It is cozy and very well decorated. We appreciated the reclaimed wood used throughout the Cottage, the high ceilings, and all of the nature-themed decorations/details. There are plenty of windows, allowing an abundance of natural light and shades to block it out if desired. The living room is perfectly cozy and a great place to snuggle up and read a book or watch TV, the kitchen is adorable, the bedroom is perfect with a comfortable bed and lights over the bed for reading at night, and the bathroom has a nice, oversized shower. The setting is tranquil; in a wooded area with a small river behind the Cottage. We enjoyed drifting off to sleep, and waking to, the gentle sound of the flowing river. Lake Waramaug is just a 30 second drive down the road. There are many wonderful restaurants and shops within 2 to 20 minutes, making it a perfect location. It was simply perfect! Built and decorated with love and care, in an idyllic setting, private, cozy, peaceful, and in a great area. We intended to stay for 3 nights, but decided to stay a 4th. We will certainly return and highly recommend this to other couples looking for a quiet getaway. This is a very special place, so please be sure to respect and honor it."
