Recent Connecticut reviews

  • A beautiful oasis on the lake

    "This house is so great! We have been coming here for 4 years and each year it gets better. It feels like a home that has been well taken care of, not just a rental property. The design is fresh and modern while still feeling comfortable and homey. Its a perfect layout for 2 families or more, with plenty of beds for everyone. Being on Bantam Lake is so fun and there are plenty of ways to enjoy it. Being at this cottage is like a wonderful hideaway, we can't wait to go back!"

  • New Yorkers in love with Madison!

    "We rented this lovely cottage for July and August in 2014. We took it sight unseen, buoyed by the photos and the wonderful reviews. This turned out to be a wonderful decision, because not only did we love the cottage, but we became fast friends with the terrific owners, and our summer time in Madison strengthened our commitment to spend more time in Madison throughout the year. We launched kayaks from the nearby beach; we enjoyed the occasional evening outdoor music from the nearby hotel. We cannot say enough about the service provided by the owners and the great location of the cottage. This property gets 5 stars easily!"

  • Beautiful, quaint, and close to the casino

    "This was the best deal when trying to do a relaxing getaway, but with the option to spend some time at Mohegan sun. The space was very well kept, and the lofted bedroom made things feel really unique. The addition of a Murphy bed on the ground floor allows for a solid number of occupants to spend time there. The owner was so easy to work with in booking the villa (even just a day or two before arrival). The Norwich Spa was truly something to behold, taking you back to a more refined period of time. The owners club pool was a delightful surprise. Getting to Mohegan, it was just a mile from the villa. Given that we wanted to drink, a 7 dollar cab ride was nothing to balk at. All in all, great way to spend a weekend!"

Winter, spring, summer or fall -- the beauty of Connecticut’s landscapes never fades. Instead, they simply get transformed into a myriad of different and vibrant colors.

Between the hiking and mountain biking trails, country markets, antique shops, museums and back roads, there is something for every type of visitor to enjoy.

It hosts regular commercial flights on domestic carriers as well as private charter planes.
