Private relaxing antique with pool!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this one of a kind antique home close to all that Litchfield has to offer. The homeowner’s have done a lovely job furnishing the home with a great blend of old and new pieces. The kitchen is fully equipped with every appliance you could possibly need. We particularly enjoyed the sitting area for morning coffee that provides a view to the pool. One of the best features of this home, is the comfortable beds. The King and 2 Queens are all like new mattresses. The bedding and towels provided are also very high quality. There are toiletries provided in both gorgeous newly remodeled baths upstairs (marble tiling). Oh, and there are even robes provided to add to the spa like feeling. Grab a pool towel, provided, and head out to the fabulous gunite pool. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool as we stayed during a July heatwave. Very well kept, private and yet close to town (10 min). Would highly recommend and return. Homeowner very quick to respond to any/all questions we had. Thanks!
My husband and I stayed in this rental# 847310 for four weeks. The house location, its beautiful private setting, and practical interior set-up are ideal.We tend to like uncluttered home interiors and this house offers that as well as the preservation of many appealing 1790 features.
The owners' concern that the house meet our needs was evident throughout all owner-tenant communications. The house Instructions left little confusion regarding house care as well as offering suggestions for community events and northwest Connecticut destinations.
Without a doubt we hope to return to this property!
This charming house was perfect for a much needed rest. The pool and grounds were beautiful. Beds were comfortable. Linens were great. The owner was wonderful to deal with and very accommodating. Very easy to communicate with and got back quickly. Only suggestion would be to have a comfortable and easy to maintain patio furniture for outdoor eating and entertaining. It's such a beautiful setting to have dinner but needs a nice table and chairs. Overall it was a great experience. Thank you so much Kristina, and we hope we can come again.
Thank you for your nice review and suggestion! It was a pleasure to have you as our guests. Just so you know, we have added new lounge chairs around the pool and more comfortable seating near the house for the coming summer season. We hope to have you back again!
Perfect for our high school graduation stay
Our son was graduating from a High School near this Bantam home, therefore it was a great place for family to stay over Memorial Day weekend. The house is well accommodated and located. Lots of foodie haunts nearby. The notes the owner sent were excellent!
very nice property
We had a great time. The pool was wonderful as were the baby bunnies we found. Great bakeries and restaurants in the area. There are also a few beautiful preserves in the area for biking and hikes. We had a great time.The property was well maintained. Great place to have a barbecue at night and watch the songbirds in the morning.
Property was well maintained and the owners were helpful and accessible.
A few minor suggestions for next year:
1. While the kitchen was great it lacked large pots for boiling water for things like corn on the cob etc.
2. Window fans upstairs. The altitude is higher than the coast, but on the really hot days the bedrooms failed to cool adequately at night. It cooled down well at night outside. I don't think A/C is necessary, but window fans would definitely do the trick.
Thank you for taking the time to post a review of our house. It was our fist summer renting and your review was very helpful.
I am sorry that you did not find the large pot--it was in the drawer under the oven.
It was also the first very hot summer since we bought the house and we will make sure the bedrooms are nice and cool for our guests next summer! Window fans are a great and easy suggestion.
We look forward to you renting again from us!
We are located in the beautiful Litchfiled Hills area of Connecticut between Lake Waramug and Bantam Lake, only 2 hours from New York City by car. This is one of the most desirable areas in Connecticut because it is so unspoiled and has protected its beautiful rural countryside.
