The space

Now that the kids are grown my husband and I have a ton of extra room going to waste, and we'd love some company! Centrally located in Connecticut in a safe suburb of Newington, we're proud to share our spacious home surrounded by an acre and a half of well-maintained property. The house is set back four hundred feet from the street with tons of parking, is clean and well-kept, has plenty of space and privacy as well as open gathering places, and is occupied by a very friendly family of three (two during the academic year when my son is at school in Ithaca, NY).

Set alongside a cliff overlooking Piper Brook, spring, summer, and fall days are extremely pleasant amid the gardens and greenery, while in winter a hill for sledding tempts families to go outside. If you're just looking for a place to crash for the night, that's fine too!

There are three available rooms, as well as additional couch space allowing for a maximum of nine guests. The largest of the three rooms has an very comfortable queen size bed, is at the farthest end of the house offering the most privacy, and has a porch overlooking the backyard. The blue room has a futon, and the green room has two twin beds. All three have access to the same full bathroom, and there is a half-bathroom downstairs. See "Beautiful Property, Friendly Home" 2 and 3 for the other available rooms.

Amenities include wi-fi, washer and dryer, 30-foot above-ground pool (June-September), grand piano, hammock, multiple porches, chiminea, air hockey, foosball, and basic exercise equipment. Five minutes from CCSU, fifteen minutes from the University of St. Joseph, twenty minutes from the University of Hartford, and halfway between NYC and Boston.

This listing is for the guest room with two twin beds.

Great place near Trinity College. House is from 1800's but has been updated and rebuilt by Paul, the owner. Susan is very friendly and they both went out of their way to greet us and make us feel comfortable. Everything about the house was top notch. Great place. They can handle families and business travelers.

Susan and Paul are the nicest people and such wonderful hosts! I had a very nice relaxing time staying in their lovely home. They are incredibly sweet people. My only regret is that my trip was too short and I couldn't spend more time getting to know them. Thanks, Susan and Paul!

We were just passing through and needed a place for the night, but we could have easily stayed for days at Sue and Paul's place. They provided us with everything we needed or wanted, including letting us do our laundry. Their house and garden is a Shangri-La--so peaceful and beautiful. I'm sorry I didn't leave more flexibility in our traveling schedule, or I would have stayed longer.

People ask me all the time how I can let perfect strangers into my house and my response is that they never feel like strangers! Charlie and Evan were as friendly and down to earth as they get! Another wonderful experience as a host!
