6 Bedroom, 4 1/2 Bath Historic Home On A 20 Acre Pond
About Calvin Arnold
With one of us growing up in rural California and the other on the beaches of North Carolina, we somehow ended up in New York City. Perhaps it was missing the open spaces of our childhood that made us fall in love with this old beautiful home.
Calvin Arnold purchased this House in 2016

Great place for a large group
We had 10 people in our group, so the house fit us perfectly in regards to bedrooms and bathrooms. Our stay was during August, so I was concerned about the a/c in an old inn. The bedroom window units were sufficient. There was one large window unit on the first floor, in the kitchen/great room, which is where we spent most of our time. We chose not to use the large dining room due to the heat. The salt water pool was wonderful and the main reason I booked this house. We stayed for 5 nights and cooked in every night. Having a washer/dryer was a plus. The cons were few. The exterior was not as manicured as it appears in the picture. The info sheet had a few house instructions, but missed some. Thanks to Google we were able to figure out where to go shopping and places to visit. There wasn't hand soap or towels in all the bathrooms. Some interior bulbs were out. A few easy fixes that may be done before the next guests.
We were there on a girls weekend and had a great visit! We spent the day in Kent, CT shopping and then we came back on Saturday night and made chicken chili in the amazing kitchen! It's a great property!
A great spot for a group getaway
I spent a long weekend here with a group of my friends recently. It's a gorgeous house with tons of space. A nice getaway for a group coming from all around New England. There was plenty of space outside for some KanJam and Cornhole. A nice pond to hangout nearby. A really great record collection for when we were hanging out inside.
The house itself is pretty amazing. Lots of space for sleeping and relaxing. A great kitchen for cooking meals though we mostly used the grill.
All the details were exactly as expected. Getting there was easy and check-in, etc. was all handled great. Cal is super responsive and easy to work with. I would definitely check this place out for another getaway in the future.
