Property description

Hidden Valley is a unique place. A sophisticated and intimate property overlooking a breathtaking nature preserve of the same name in the hills of Washington, Connecticut in Litchfield County.

Hidden Valley's rooms include an exquisite semi-attached guest room, with private entry, a king size bed, en-suite full bath and French windows facing the front terrace with far south-eastern view. Extensive library present at the premises. A master suite with sweeping valley views and private dressing room and thermal spa bath. Two additional rooms with shared bath and a children's third floor nursery/playroom with three beds. Décor and setting provide American comfort with European antique furnishings. The valley side of the house is surrounded by a flagstone terrace with seating over the full length, accessible by French doors across the entire side of the house. The end of the terrace includes a separate seating area and a heated dipping pool. Nestled between mature plantings is a children's play structure and zip wire.

Located within a few miles of the picturesque town center of Washington, the Mayflower Inn & Spa, 20 min. to Mohawk Ski Area, 5 min to New Preston and Lake Waramaug, Hidden Valley is the perfect location to enjoy multiple country and fine dining options, hiking, upscale shopping, exceptional antiquing, historic homes and gardens, and other outdoor activities nearby.

The house can be rented for more extended visits during the summer months and over the major holidays. For the rest of the year the house is available as a Bed and Breakfast or short term rental for family reunions or a romantic get-away.

Hidden Valley welcomes discerning guests who are hoping to find a private escape and comfortable lodging, 2 hours drive from New York City and an easy hour from Bradley International Airport in Hartford/Springfield. It is close to many boarding schools in the Litchfield Hills of Northwestern Connecticut.
