"My husband and I and our four sons wanted some real family time before half of the kids jetted off to college. We explored a number of properties in western Connecticut. The innkeeper for the Amselhaus was incredibly friendly and communicative from the very start and we felt welcome before we even walked in the door. Once there, we felt instantly at home. I can honestly say I have never stepped into a vacation rental and felt as instantly at home and comfortable. We stayed in the north house which was perfect for our family. There were fresh cookies for all of us, coffee for the making in the morning, all the kitchen items one would need as well as a book of information about where we could eat out and activities we could take part in in the area. We sat on the porch and watched the river, the kids played croquet and "chilled out" in the living room watching old Sponge Bob episodes in the evening. (We don't have cable TV at home so this was a treat for them....even the older ones.) Every part of the trip was made special by the accommodations. And the review written about the comfortable beds were right on. We slept in absolute comfort. We are all looking forward to coming back again and my husband and I are entertaining the idea of an anniversary trip for just the two of us.
There are many great activities to take part in including Kent Falls down the road and a mining museum. There are restaurants and even some that deliver to the Amselhaus.
If you are looking for a comfortable place to come with family or just for a couple, I can not rate this place more enthusiastically. My only fear is as word gets around about this gem, we wont be able to book it."

"After years booking hotels when visiting our Conn. family, we tried something different and rented this lovely beach house. At this quaint cottage on the beach we had our most memorable visit ever. The kids will be talking about this one for years to come. Daytime relaxing on the beach, BBQ meals, and smore's by the fire pit at night. For me, the best was at the end of our stay, my husband said, "Well done picking this place."
All the necessary rental conditions were met: clean, comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, 1 & 1/2 baths, washing machine. The owner Elly could not have been nicer... very accommodating. We look forward to another stay next year."

"Stayed at the house with several friends while attending a wedding at Lion Rock Farm. The house was immaculate upon arrival and exactly as described. Owners are a pleasure to deal with and after our stay my deposit was promptly returned. I would definitely recommend this secluded property as a great alternative to the hotels in the area."
