Absolutely perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home for my mother's 90th birthday and LOVED it! Plenty of room for our family of 12 to eat, sleep, and just hang out. We were lucky to have ideal weather so when our extended family joined us for the day we could enjoy the stone patio and beautiful yard. The fire pit and gas fireplace took the chill off at night. The kitchen was beautifully appointed and a dream to cook in. We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our long weekend in this perfectly beautiful home! A New England paradise! The party was catered by Bountiful Board and we HIGHLY recommend them too! I wouldn't be surprised if we book a return visit!

Beautiful home in Connecticut Woods!

  • 4 of 5

I was very impressed with the size of the house and attention to detail. Everything was included and it was stocked with all the essential equipment in the kitchen. A home away from home. The furniture was beautiful and we loved the nicknacks and decorations throughout the house! It was elegant and very homey. The beds were very comfortable and loved the antique furniture! The toilet that was shared by the three bedrooms was not easy to flush. The handle had to be held down for the entire time for a complete flush. There was also a problem in the basement bathroom. It kept running unless you jiggled the handle.

I don't think it is appropriate to make the renters take off all the sheets on the beds and place them in front of the washer and dryer. I also did not appreciate Debbie asking me to water all the plants in the living room before she left. I am not the maid.

Aside from these few things, I would rent this house in the future and recommend it to my friends. You have a great house Janet!!

MAGNIFICENT HOME

  • 5 of 5

Eden Farm was indeed a home away from home. Our family was thrilled with the entire property, the grounds, bedrooms, the five star kitchen. Everything was perfect. The description posted on the sight was accurate regarding the location, amenities, the grounds. What the listing did not say, is that once you step foot in Eden Farm you did not want to leave. We were in town for our daughter's wedding and needed a place where the entire family could stay and it was the perfect location. The grounds were picturesque, the beds were super soft and comfortable, when we laid our heads down to sleep it was heaven.

We have told our friends and family so much about Eden Farm that they want to come too. You will definitely see us very soon in the near future. Thank you so much Debbie for taking good care of us. Regards to your husband and son. I asked my daughter to find the bitter melon for you.

See you soon Eden Farm

Outstanding in every way

  • 5 of 5

I can only second what all the other reviewers have said. This is a terrific house, especially for a large group. Spacious, luxurious and super comfortable, plenty of space to gather or to be private. The beds were sumptuous. Huge yard for outdoor activities if you can pry yourself from the couch in front of the fireplace. Janet was very responsive to our questions and Jamie the local house manager very attentive. Already looking forward to our next stay at Eden Hill. Thanks, Janet, for sharing your lovely house.
