Ashford is adjacent to Storrs, Mansfield, Putnam, Pomfret and Woodstock. It is one of 35 small New England towns located with in the northeastern area of Connecticut which is known as "The Quiet Corner." The rural character of the area is defined by the several river systems and the rolling hills that surround them. The area has historic sites, town greens, orchards, maple sugar houses, museums, antique shops and local diners and restaurants.

** Drive Scenic Route 169, one of the first highways with the designation in the US.

** Visit Putnam, the antique capital of New England, with over 300 antique shops and marketplaces on every street. Woodstock has lovely gift shops, gardening centers and coffee houses. Pomfret's General Stores take you back to the 1800's.

After touring the small towns and browsing antique shops come home to Lake Chaffee Getaway to relax on the deck and swim in the cool water of Lake Chaffee.
