  • Wonderful abode

    "This little barn is delightful and my husband, teenage son and I really appreciated our five nights here. The place was very comfortable, tastefully decorated, very peaceful with lovely views. Saw wild turkeys in the field beyond! Was there for parent's weekend at a nearby prep school, and this made the perfect base to operate from. We didn't get to spend much time just enjoying the barn because we were out most of the time, but it would be a nice place to kick back and read, write and relax. The owner was very helpful and great to communicate with and kindly accommodated changes to our planned arrival and departure dates. Only hitch was that internet was out during our stay; we didn't let the owner know until after we departed, but I am confident it would have been fixed lickety-split if we had. The area is beautiful."

  • PERFECTION

    "Just got back to Manhattan after a two-night ladies' getaway at Spirit Horse Farm. The house and property look exactly like the pictures listed, if not even better. The house was clean and stunningly beautiful. It's truly the best vacation home I've ever rented. If you're looking for a quiet place to get away for the weekend this is it! Kent is quaint a beautiful as well- with a liquor store, pizza place, and ice cream shop less than a mile from the Farm. The farm-owner- Guy, was welcoming and lovely and the property is complete with chickens, roosters, horses, and a peacock- We loved it!"

  • A Little Slice of Heaven

    "We just had our best vacation ever and it was because of this truly perfect home located on a stunning location. It's difficult not to overuse superlatives here. Our hosts did everything possible to make it so. Outstandingly clean, attractively furnished and fully equipped in every way - everything was done to insure we had a wonderful time. And we certainly did. Our children loved the beach and lived there for the week. We found ourselves caught up in the spectacular views - dawn and dusk - from the back deck where we had most of our meals. Descriptions do not do this home justice . And there is so much to do in this part of the state - museums, restaurants, antiques, shopping, beach towns to explore - just a short drive away. A quick tip: be sure to go to Captain Scott's in New London for the complete harbor side lobster experience. All we can say is that our stay was ideal in every way and our hosts were uncommonly generous. We'd go back in a heartbeat!!"
