  • Great Vacation Spot

    "We rented this house for three years and loved it. The cottage is adorable and has everything you could want. Denise is very helpful and even supplied a blow-up mattress for my grand-daughters. The lake is clean and has a gradual incline which makes it perfect for children. Although the road is a main thoroughfare it isn't heavily used and the package store across the street is hidden behind a stand of evergreens. The house was supplied with brochures and information on restaurants, attractions, and grocery and drug stores in the area. How anyone could be dissatisfied with this lovely home amazes me."

  • Peaceful Weekend

    "What a great time we had this weekend going up to the lake house in CT. What a pleasant adventure it was. The lake house was more spacious than we expected and it was very nicely decorated . Complete with kitchen, living room and four very comfortable bedrooms. It seems as though you could sleep as many as 8 or more people. The beds were soft and we had a great night’s sleep. The views of the lake were very impressive and the water was extremely clear. There were people fishing on the lake and we actually went kayaking while we were there . Even it had rained there would have been no problem entertaining the kids given all the tv’s and games available for our use. I would describe it as very peaceful, beautiful and a great place to get away from it all. It’s the kind of a place that you could go to again and again.. The kids want to go back."

  • From Great Neck with gratitude

    "We stayed at this beautiful house for a month and absolutely loved our accommodation. The house is so airy and spacious, very tastefully designed. We felt totally at home there, so cozy and comfortable. Every single detail in the house is taking care of, starting from every cooking and dining need to plentiful of fresh towels, sheets and blankets. The owners are very understanding, easy to reach and communicate to. They immediately responded to every request or question we would have. They made us feel very welcomed there. There are so many things to do around in the community and in the area around, so many unique restaurants, farms, and places to see. We fell in love with Connecticut and its people. We are looking forward to come back soon. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful house with us."

  • 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."
