About Gary Olsen
My family has lived in Sharon for 4 generations. This has always been...and always will be....my home.
Gary Olsen purchased this House in 1989
Why Gary Olsen chose Sharon
My family selected this mountaintop for a home site. I believe it represents the very best location in the area.
What makes this House unique
The unique combination of the home itself and the location. Just a short drive from New York City.....yet it offers a true New England experience. This property is also the main residence for Thee Ellsworth Manor; an elegant wedding and event venue.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Idyllic setting and comfortable space!
Breathtaking views of the Litchfield hills from this spacious home. Don't miss taking a peak at the dovecote!
I am so thrilled to be leaving this review. We rented this house as part of an event we held on the same property for our family reunion. It was spectacular! The panoramic views were just stunning. The house was beautiful, very clean and everything we needed was available to us. Our host Gary was very kind, accommodating and eager to please. We are certainly going to consider using this location for our next event or even just booking the house for future extended family visits thank you very much Gary! I would highly recommend this place for a another stay in the house or any type of event.
Glad you enjoyed your stay at this very special home . The home was left in great shape ,and looking forward to accommodating you again , Gary
A spectacular view, but the horrific house keeping made this location a MUST to avoid
Great views of the property during the day light hours, but the conditions inside the house were horrific. Dust and cobwebs accumulated everywhere, mold on the side of the toilet in one bathroom, difficult to regulate water temperature in the showers, and NO internet connectivity. One setting for clothes washing and drying, not acceptable if doing delicate clothes. The kitchen was dated and only three of the four burners functioned. No working light over the cooking area.
Light bulbs were broken or burned out, screens had fallen off storm doors. Maintenance inside the house was horrible, mice droppings completely surrounded the mantel piece and could be found elsewhere in the house. Newspapers from June 2017 were on the tables; who does the cleaning? The owner is not getting what we are paying for.
The TV's were of old tube, analog vintage. NOTHING in this house is up to date.
At the time of booking I was excited about this location and looked forward to our arrival. Minutes after we arrived, the luster was gone and we suffered through the rental term, looking forward to moving on.
I am filing a property complaint with VRBO and will be seeking either a complete refund or some reduction in our fees paid due to the unacceptable conditions encountered.
I cannot and will not recommend this property to anyone.
Beautiful setting & fantastic getaway
We just spent the last weekend here for an old friends re-union. The setting was serene and exceeded all our expectations. The house was very well kept and cozy. Even though the weather wasn't cooperating, we still made a couple of trips up to the wedding site/hilltop where we had a full views of foliage. Gary was very polite and easy to work with in booking the house. It was very informal and no frill. We'd def book again if/when we come back out to the area.
Such a lovely house in an amazing setting
Can't recommend it highly enough, will definitely try to go back again
For my mom's 91st birthday, myself and my three sisters took our mom away for a girls weekend. We had the best time ever. The house is beautiful and was absolutely perfect for all of us. There was nothing we had to bring other than ourselves and our personal belongings. The owner is extremely friendly and very accommodating. We definitely want to return here again and would highly recommend this lovely home to anyone considering a get-away trip!
Quiet enjoyment at its best. Most people; once they arrive at this special place and explore all that it has to offer....feel little desire to leave.
