Our Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing little cottage! The owners, Steve and Janet, couldn't have been more pleasant and accommodating, not to mention Debbie, the property manager, who always made sure nothing ever went wrong.

The very private cottage is located on a huge and serene property. As soon as you walk into the cottage, you can appreciate the clever open concept, yet coziness, of it. The kitchen was perfect, the living room was very comfortable, the extra living room space suited our needs, the king size bed in the bedroom was also very comfortable and the screened porch was wonderful, especially for entertaining.

Don't pass the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful Home Away from Home.

Cute quiet cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was super cute and met all my needs and expectations. The caretaker, Debbie, offered to come over to make sure I was all set. She was lovely and helpful. It was clean, nicely decorated, warm, and had the most amazing bed I've ever slept in! I felt like Her Royal Highness, The Queen of England. It was also incredibly quiet. If you are a city person, or even a suburbanite, you will bask in the utter silence of this cottage.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for 6 nights and it was perfect! The homeowner was very responsive to emails leading up to our stay and the property manager, Debbie, was great. Will definitely stay again if it is available next time we visit family in Connecticut.
