Property description

Comfortable and charming cottage on a quiet dead end road, directly on the scenic Housatonic River. Enjoy the large open grounds with a butterfly garden leading to the cottage.

Enjoy the spectacular view of the river through the glass siding doors in the spacious living room. The furniture compliments the wood-burning fireplace. The dining area adjacent to the living room brings in abundant natural light through the skylight and corner windows. The built-in seating with colorful loose cushions makes the area cozy. The dining area also faces the river.
The kitchen is fully equipped with major appliances plus a full array of cooking utensils and serving dishes.

The large master bedroom tastefully furnished with a queen size bed and antique furniture complete with window draperies in a fly-fishing motif.
The second bedroom with a full size bed is located on the opposite end of the cottage allowing complete privacy.

The Appalachian Trail intersects the village and many nature trails are available nearby. Many bike paths, bird walks, nature conservation activities are available as well.
Visits to the Berkshire area are a 45 minutes drive: Tanglewood, Shakespeare & Co., Berkshire Theatre Festival and nearby mansions such as The Mount and Naumkeag.
The renowned Music Mountain is just behind the cottage (8 minutes drive), which offers summer-long jazz and classical concerts. Nearby are the historical villages of Lakeville, Salisbury, Sharon and Kent for fine dining, antiquing and gallery visits.
The cottage is also close to Lime Rock Race Park (5 minutes).
Other outdoor activities include horseback riding, golf, swimming, down-hill and cross-country skiing.

Falls village is a quiet village and in fact is the second smallest hamlet in Connecticut. The cottage is close to Route 7 but located on a quiet private road.
