Litchfield County: a posh getaway if you need to escape Manhattan

It's a common notion that Manhattanites drive up to the Hamptons for the weekend. After all, that's what pop culture has been feeding us all this time, right? But apparently, there's an alternative getaway for when city folk feel like the Hamptons are too buzzy for a quiet weekend. Instead, they drive up to their nests in Litchfield County, a lush pocket of rolling hills in the northwestern corner of Connecticut. Staying at Litchfield County vacation rentals lets you escape the city in the way that urban types do.

Things to do

Fall in love with picture-perfect Lake Waramaug

Litchfield County has no lack of Instagram-worthy sights, but few can ever compare to the serenity of Lake Waramaug. With the mirror-like sheen of its waters, the lush greenery on its shores, and the lack of real estate development surrounding it, Lake Waramaug makes an awesome background for a selfie, but try to take pics of just the views too. The lake is the focal point of Lake Waramaug State Park, where you can swim, fish, go canoeing, or enjoy a picnic. The state park is the only public access to the lake.

Activities

Time slows down in Litchfield County

Perhaps one of the reasons why urbanites make the drive up to Litchfield County on weekends is time seems to move much more slowly there, compared to the frenetic way it seems to flow in the city. In Litchfield County, you can breathe deeply and savor each breath as you meditate your stress away in the comfort of your Litchfield County vacation rental. You can reconnect with nature by hiking the 5-mile segment of the Appalachian Trail that cuts through the county. Or you can shop for unique goods, handicrafts, or gorgeous antiques.

Weather

Litchfield County is glorious in fall

Litchfield County experiences 4 seasons, and each season has its own character. Winter draws in cross-country skiers and vacation merrymakers, while spring is for whitewater canoeing. Summer brings in the long-distance hikers who want to pit themselves against the rigors of the Appalachian Trail. Fall, however, is when Litchfield County becomes truly breathtaking, when the green of the countryside turns into different shades of burning orange and red. Fall is also one of the busiest times for Litchfield County vacation rentals, so make sure you book yours way ahead.

Natural features

The hills are alive and teeming with charm

With a total area of 945 square miles, Litchfield County is the largest county in Connecticut. Yet with a population of only 183,000 souls, it's Connecticut's least dense area. Though generally flat with few points of elevation, Litchfield County has a hilly side aptly known as Litchfield Hills, an area occupied mostly by picturesque farms that have been run by the same families for generations, some dating back to the late 1700s. Litchfield contains a portion of the Appalachian Trail, considered to be one of the most challenging long-distance hiking trails in the world.
