  • Ideal for a long week-end getaway

    "My husband and I usually stay at an historic inn or a B&B for week-end escapes but this time we decided to try VRBO. I quickly realized most of the search results were for large families or extended families with descriptions of 8-11 bedrooms. For the few that were 1 bedroom rentals, most were lacking in character and had plain white walls and that beige worn out couch condo look. I was about to revert to a B&B site when I came across the listing for Little Wheel cottage. It seemed almost too good to be true but the pictures are indeed accurate. If you are looking for a place that has country charm in a good way, this is it! :) We fell asleep to the sound of the river right outside our bedroom window and in the mornings we enjoyed our coffee on the stone terrace custom built by the little waterfall. One evening before dinner while we were sitting there relaxing, a small raccoon came down from the opposite bank and took a few sips of water. This is the perfect place to decompress and do nothing. There is a tv in the living room but we enjoyed perusing the coffee table books and just vegging out on the comfy armchair and couch and the bed itself had his/her reading lamps. The kitchen and in fact the whole cottage was impeccably clean and the owner, who could not have been nicer, supplied us with beach towels and chairs for the town beach. While we came at the end of the summer, we could see how this would be a wonderful escape anytime of the year, particularly during fall foliage season because of the beautiful mature trees and the woods surrounding the property. As for activities, we loved that Lake Waramaug was within walking distance, although it's best to just drive to it if you plan to spend time at the town beach. There is an entry fee but they let you use their kayaks…a highlight of the week-end! We also like to hike and went to Mt. Tom State Park (Washington). This park had a $14 or $15 entry fee but it also had a nice lake and beach for swimming. Another day we hiked Macedonia State Park (Kent) There was no charge to enter but that could have been b/c it was Labor Day and the season was over. We plan to come back one of these days and would also highly recommend this getaway to friends."

  • Lovely home, Lovely Area

    "We rented this home for a week over Christmas. The home was lovely and did not feel at all like a short term rental - finishings were high-end, home was very well maintained and anything you could need/want was on hand (from kitchen supplies / utensils to books, movies and firewood). The owner was very easy to work with and always responded promptly. I wish it were a bit closer to the city so we could rent long term!"

  • Wonderful bright and cozy weekend getaway!

    "With a large group from Brooklyn (10 kids, 10 adults) we are in an annual search for the perfect home to accommodate our growing families for a weekend getaway. I think we finally found the right place for each family to fit comfortably. The kitchen is great to cook in, the living areas are huge and have cozy furniture. The grounds are great and picturesque at every turn, good for adventure and the trampoline was a hit. We went hiking at nearby Mt Tom, went to get pumpkins at March Farms and finished with a walk around the Litchfield Boardwalk. This house was perfect and we look forward to coming again."

  • The perfect spot for a family vacation

    "Our family of 4 (including 2 children) just spent a perfect 2 weeks at the house, and couldn't have loved it more. The house itself is beautiful, conveniently located to Kent and surrounding areas, and in a lovely set on Hatch Pond. The owner is responsive and happy to help with everything from putting in an extra AC window unit to fixing a shade that fell down. We absolutely loved our stay there."
