Lovely home, Lovely Area

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a week over Christmas. The home was lovely and did not feel at all like a short term rental - finishings were high-end, home was very well maintained and anything you could need/want was on hand (from kitchen supplies / utensils to books, movies and firewood). The owner was very easy to work with and always responded promptly. I wish it were a bit closer to the city so we could rent long term!

Great stay in Litchfield Conneticut

  • 5 of 5

We got out of the City for New Year's eve and had a lovely weekend retreat to this home in Washington CT.

The home was lovely, well appointed and with a great cozy feeling. The kitchen was well positioned for the cook and the fire place and large common space were great for catching up with old friends.

The owners are professional and easy to work with- you can tell they care deeply about both the property as well as sharing their home with visitors.

We look forward to returning in the summer and enjoying the pool!

The perfect country home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for a long weekend at this stunning home and could not speak highly enough about it. The setting is tranquil, the house is luxurious with quality fixtures and fittings throughout, and the convenience of being so close to NYC makes it almost irresistable. It was simply perfect. And the owners were most helpful and easy to deal with.

Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

VRBO rentals are a staple of our family holidays. We have stayed in more than 10 homes on two continents. This property provided the best experience we've had to date. It is exceptionally well-apponted, with wonderful furniture, kitchen and cooking accessories, a truly lovely, bucolic setting and thoughtful, accommodating owners. The house itself is beautifully designed and constructed with many fine architectural and finishing details. The bedrooms are all comfortable, with high-quality beds and linens. In short, this property makes you feel at home... in fact, often wishing it was your home! My only reluctance in so favorably reviewing the property is that it will be less available to us for our next holiday...

Fabulous country retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this home for 5 weeks last August. We fell in love from the first viewing. This house is not a typical rental. We liked to tell people that it felt more like a good friend's home than a rental. The furnishings, from the inviting sofas to the thick rugs were chic, modern and comfortable. The layout was thoughtfully designed. The first floor has an open kitchen that connects to a great room which encompasses the dining area and living room. I cook all the time and the kitchen was very well-equipped. There is also a top of the line grill on the deck off the kitchen along with a smoker.

Other highlights include the screened in porch with both a dining table and a sitting area. We spent a lot of time lingering over meals out there.

The heated saltwater pool was incredible. Not only beautiful but pure pleasure to swim in. Our kids took full advantage! It was also long enough for decent lap swimming. In addition there is a childrens playset on the property.

We also appreciated the gym equipment on the lower level. They have a precor, a rowing machine (both in great condition) and a tv to watch while you work out.

I shouldn't forget the screening room with a huge flat screen tv and comfy seating.

We had such a good time that we decided to rent the home throughout the winter and just finished up after a grand total of 5 months.

The owners couldn't be more helpful and were available whenever we needed them.

Washington is a sweet little sleepy village. In town don't miss the Pantry for lunch, Marty's for coffee, and the GW Tavern for a casual dinner. There are great hikes nearby, and farms everywhere. We picked blueberries, strawberries and apples. We also found some great local lakes to swim in and lots of other secret spots like the Arethusa ice-cream store in Bantam owned by the Manolo Blahnik guys.

We loved this home and couldn't give a stronger recommendation.

The screened in porch off the living room was a favorite hang out.
