  • Amazing house in the perfect location! Views that never end!

    "We traveled far and wide from across the globe for a wedding in peak leaf season. The house and location couldn't have been any better! For six adults we couldn't ask for a better house in terms of rest and relaxation! We were pleasantly surprised when the owner called us the first evening, just to check in and see if we needed anything else. He's been great to work with! The kitchen is well appointed with everything a chef could need. Just bring a deck of cards, your own food & drink, and toiletries, and you're good to go! Groceries: We'd shopped at Costco in Hartford, but later realized that almost everything we could have wanted was available at the local grocer just down the road. While a little more expensive than shopping in a major city, when you figure the cost of time and gas, the local market is a bargain. They even have a sushi chef making a fresh selection daily! You'll likely run into one of the many down to earth celebs that live in Sharon. The girls walked down to the local salon for mani-pedis ($40), and raved about the service and prices. If you're lucky, you'll get to see tons of wildlife on and around the property. We were greeted numerous times by two families of deer, rabbits, and countless birds and owls. The walk to the beach was beautiful! Be sure to pay attention to the beautifully hand carved gates at twin oaks! You can't see the gates from the house, but you can see the oaks! Being out in rural CT, the cell service is limited. If you have a wi-fi enabled phone you'll be fine since the house, and most of the neighbors have wi-fi. If you don't, you may want to add Google Voice or another wi-fi phone service to your phone before heading out into rural America. Be sure you check out the local towns, parks, and hikes! They are all stunning! Kent: If you head to Kent, be sure and check out Kent Coffee (by the tracks), if for no other reason than to drool over their chocolates! The coffee shop on the other end of town may get more advertising, but don't fall for it, you'll only find tourists and bad coffee. Weekdays are the best. Kent Falls: go on a weekday! The walk to the top is just that, an easy walk! While a WC or stroller may not make it all the way to the top (OK, they won't), there is still plenty for them to see. Lime Rock: Go on a weekday, late afternoon. Since they were done with their official activity for the day they let us in for free and "explore", even letting us drive on the track!"

  • Lovely cottage!

    "We had a lovely stay at this charming cottage. It was the perfect size for a family of four, with a beautiful backyard and close to a cute little village and nice lake to swim in. Kerrie was very responsive and the house has a cozy, warm feel to it. We'd stay again, for sure. Thanks!"

  • Just what we were hoping for

    "Before we rented the property, Susan and Bill were extremely helpful in giving me details about the house, kitchen and general lay of the land. We were 3 couples renting the house and found the space very easy to live in and cook in. We enjoyed dinner out on the screened in porch, with the lake in the distance. The kitchen had most every needed appliance and utensils and was easy to keep clean. The beds were very comfortable and bathrooms clean and well stocked with towels and bath tissue. The house is not directly on the lake and you walk just a minute to get to the beach association. The one downside about this small beach is that there wasn't alot of shade cover or beach umbrellas and even though there was a floating dock out in the lake to swim to, there was alot of algae in the deeper water, which made it yukky to swim in. 0ne day we rented a pontoon boat at Echo Bay Marina and had a blast on the lake, swimming and touring all over the many coves. For a special treat, we'd recommend eating at Lucia Ristorante in New Milford; we had a most delicious meal there and the service was gracious, too. We'd definitely recommend staying here; it was a lovely house, very warm and welcoming. 4 stars instead of 5 because of the beach layout."

  • Outstanding

    "The pictures here don't do this house justice. You will be blown away by the grandness of the main living space when you see it in person. The view and sunset from the main living room/back deck are incredible (an awesome surprise). We were 14 adults, 2 kids, and 4 babies and the place never felt cramped (one couple slept on an air mattress). The house itself is built of solid materials and is furnished with high-end items in every corner. Beds are extremely comfortable and every room was given thought and attention to detail. The house is very well-equipped for cooking and baking. We were there in the winter so we didn't have access to the pool, but the fire pit and garden areas are beautifully manicured and impeccably maintained. Too many other little amenities and surprises to list all of them. On top of all of that, the host was extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended."
