Owners are a writer and an architect/artist who have built a truly unique property and home. Perfect for relaxing inside and out, private rear-yard patio for outdoor cooking and dining.
Fully-stocked eat-in cook's kitchen. Outdoor bbq grill is close at hand. Three bedrooms, Living Room, Dining Room, Playroom in basement, big screened in porch with fireplace. One full bath upstairs has a huge clawfoot tub and shower and a half bath downstairs as well as a brand new modern 3 piece bathroom off the guest room on the first floor -- so two couples can comfortably stay in the house with enough privacy between upstairs/downstairs.

Interaction with Guests
Hosts are available by cell phone and text anytime you need them, but otherwise, you have privacy, we will not be around.
Enjoy scenic walks past farms and grazing cattle, truly a special corner of Litchfield County with wildlife galore. Every Sunday in the summer/fall there is a great farmer's market within walking distance -- Southfarms (dot org) -- featuring organic vegetables, fresh local food trucks and kid’s play time catching frogs down by the creek. Southfarms offers hay-rides and other seasonal activities such as a corn maze and a sunflower walking trail.
House is private but not too secluded, views of a 100 acre cornfield to the north and a grass pasture to the south are breathtaking in any season. Huge bird population, wild rabbits, and woodchucks.
Very safe roads nearby with little traffic so they are great for jogging, walking and biking -- enjoy scenic views to nearby farms and grazing cattle.

Other Things to Note
Get your hands dirty: Organic garden on the property, feel free to pick your own lettuce and fresh herbs. Wild blackberries are all over the property in late summer. There is a family of woodchucks living under the barn and a large group of rabbits in the back near our starter-orchard of apple and pear trees.
