Why Jody Troiano chose Danbury
This is a treasured family property, handed down through 2 generations
What makes this House unique
I fell in love with Camp Inches because of it's rustic charm, unique layout and peaceful location. I am especially drawn to the proximity of the Wild Meadows Brook to our home. The waterfall into the swimming pool is unique and sets Camp Inches apart. Even with the windows closed, you can hear that river!! It's so soothing and relaxing. The 5 sliding glass doors bring the outdoors right in. I love to walk Wild Meadow (9 acres) with my standard poodle Abby. Most of it is open meadow and the brook abuts the length of that property too. You can explore the Wild Meadow Brook and find swimming holes and little sandy beaches to rest and sunbathe.

Perfect, well stocked, rustic vacation home away from the hustle and bustle!
This was perfect for our family! Our first day, we enjoyed hiking through the woods and getting acclimated to the area. The weather was cold and crisp! The next several days took us to the White Mountains, the Green Mountains, and everywhere in between! Most evenings we cooked at home and enjoyed peaceful evenings. The well stocked kitchen, large family spaces and cozy bedrooms made our stay very easy. Jody was a true pleasure to talk with from the very beginning of the registration process through the stay. We would highly recommend this rental to friends and family and will likely be back! Thank you, Jody!
I'm always overwhelmed with a great sense of gratitude each and every time I receive a guest response such as yours. It's with sincere pleasure that I am able to share my family home with others such as yourselves. I so enjoy the slower pace and being surrounded in nature, especially with family and friends. I've always enjoyed spending my time at Camp Inches and I'm so happy that you did too!
~Thank you for choosing my home~

If your ever make your way up this way again, know you'll always have a place to stay here at Camp Inches! PS,Thanks for helping me out with the simmer on the stove!!
Quiet and relaxing home with a comfortable and well set-up property.
The house is tidy and super comfortable. There is a lot of room for kicking back and relaxing: a living room, great room and large porch, all with plenty of seating.
I enjoyed having a nice kitchen with all the appliances I could need. It was great workspace. I did lots of cooking. Oh, and a very nice gas grill, too, just outside the kitchen. It was kind of cool to have several tables for dining options. My favorite was the outdoor dining area on the deck just off our bedroom.
Outdoor areas were all nice, too. Spent lots of time on the decks (front and back) and enjoyed fires in the firepit out back.
The river running along the property was a nice feature. Pretty, soothing. Nice spot for a little hike.
Stayed on property all week, really. Next time? I'm looking forward to exploring the many hiking options.
BTW: Property owner could not have been nicer or more accomodating. Thanks Jodi. Oh, and really friendly neighbors.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review! It was such a pleasure having you as my guests and I'm especially happy to hear you were able to relax! I find the screened in porch by the brook so relaxing and a great place to take a nap! Which is exactly what I did later in the day after you left! That babbling brook is SO soothing!! I get why you hung around the house more than you might have thought you would! I look forward to having you back next. It's guests just like you that make this all worth it to me!!!

That brings us to Jody, the reviews you see her mentioned every time. Well my turn, Jody is a gracious, beautiful person! She is so generous to share this unbelievably tranquile, relaxing, part of her life experience with you. When she showed up to greet us I had few words and walked up to her with the biggest hug, how many people do you know can make you feel that comfortable and grateful to in the first minutes of meeting. Thank you so much for sharing your home, and making this one of our favorite memories in our life. We hope to be back soon!
