Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: Married, father of three and grandfather of six!

Why the Owner Chose West Cornwall, Cornwall, CT, USA:
This part of New England is beautiful and quaint and the cottage, brook, river, and West Cornwall town are as good as it gets.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We like the sound of the bubbling brook, the quiet of the woods, sitting on the deck surrounded by an amphitheater of 100 foot tall trees, jogging along the dirt road on the other side of the Housatonic River, walking through our woods or down our road to the River, the Covered Bridge, Wandering Moose Cafe and other shops in West Cornwall, kayaking and rafting on the River, hiking the nearby trails, going to the movies in Millerton, and visiting the nearby towns of Lakeville, Salisbury, Sharon, Kent, Amenia and Millerton.
