About Elizabeth Place
We have lived next door for 20 years and purchased our neighbor's home next door in 2017. We renovated the house and now use it for our own family parties, local private school guests and Home Away renters. We now have many repeat guests and have made new friends along the way. As we make improvements to the house, it is becoming a very special place for parties and family gatherings.
Elizabeth Place purchased this House in 2017
Why Elizabeth Place chose South Kent
Kent is amazing in Winter for cross country skiing, downhill 20 minutes north at Mohawk, winter walks along the Housatonic River. The property is super quiet with miles of walking and hiking on the South Kent School trails behind the house, sit out on the lawn and contemplate the cows in the pasture below. (A four year old guest named them all over her August stay.) Walk to the waterfalls at Bulls Bridge and take a canoe out on Hatch Pond, one mile west. Come home to a great cooking kitchen and fireplace or cook outside and sit around the firepit at night. Excellent spot for stargazing!!

A special, fall family getaway
We had a great stay - the house was perfectly appointed, with fresh eggs and bread for the morning. The layout was ideal for our family with two teenagers and two adults. Elizabeth was available and easy to work with. And the view of the mountains/surrounding land made it an idyllic, rural Connecticut experience. We world definitely hope to return.
Thank you! Please come again.
Wonderful house, Gorgeous Views!
My family gathered in Kent for a sad occasion after having moved south 8 years ago. Coming home and staying in this lovely house was exactly that...Home! Upon our arrival we found a spotlessly clean, well maintained home with amenities too numerous to list. The kitchen had plenty of dishes, glasses and cookware for a family of 7, and there was no shortage of towels, blankets and shampoos/conditioners etc.. The views were amazing, especially watching the snowstorm coming in! Elizabeth left us an abundance of wonderful goodies in the refrigerator ( not just the typical milk and coffee you might get in other rentals) so were able to fix a huge breakfast with fresh eggs watching the snow from the living room. We loved the cozy feel of this house and hope to return next time we go home to visit.
Beautiful sunsets and autumn leaves
Another wonderful stay at Berkshire Place. The property is well maintained and it's clear the owner takes pride in ownership. I will be back again the next time I am in the area!
Great house and a wonderful location. Everything was clean and ready for us when we arrived. Special little goodies were included which was a nice touch.
Awesome place, awesome views, awesome host
Was a great place to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings. Would go back in a heartbeat
Great quiet weekend!
We had a great time staying at this beautiful, clean, quiet home. The views are gorgeous and there is plenty to do in the area. Highly recommended!
