  • 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."

  • Great Location - Perfect House for Our Trip

    "The home was great, perfect for our group. The setting is beautiful and the brook behind the house is really nice(and sounds wonderful through the bedroom windows). The gas fireplace was very nice on chilly mornings or when we returned in the evening. The downstairs bedroom has a bathroom and was perfect for my mother who accompanied us on the trip. Owners were super responsive and very easy to deal with."

  • Excellent Stay!

    "We stayed at Betsey's home for the weekend of my wedding. We were able to sleep 15 of our friends and family no problem! The house is plenty big for a large group. It is also situated right on the water and many of us went swimming and took out the kayaks. The house provided everything we were looking for. It was a lovely weekend and the only thing I would change was if we were able to stay longer. Thanks so much Betsey!"

  • First annual gathering of the clan

    "I wanted to get my CT adult kids and my RI adult kids and their children (my grandchildren) all in one spot for a few days of fun. It was PERFECT. The little ones got to play together, the weather was great, the beach was lots of fun and the house was so cozy, comfortable and CLEAN. We all felt like we were at home, only better. Our hosts (right next door) were very attentive to details, including their email correspondence. We hope to return next summer."
