About This Listing
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.
Staying with Susan and Paul was fantastic! I arrived later in the evening and they welcomed me warmly. A few of the other guests were around as well and we all talked about our travels and had some wine. Their home is lovely and the room I stayed in was very comfortable. Susan is a great host very accommodating. She even made breakfast next morning! I hope to make another trip back to Connecticut so I can stay with her again!
Truly a home away from home! Sue and Paul were awesome hosts!
Susan and Paul were a great host and the property is truly beautiful amidst a sprawling lush green lawns and trees. The stay was very relaxing. For three weeks I felt like a pat of their l
beautiful family! Enjoyed the homegrown pears and tomatoes!
My stay with Susan & Paul was a wonderful experience. They showed great hospitality and I just felt like being at home, right from day one. I am looking forward to stay at their place again.
We loved staying with Susan and her husband. They were so welcoming and warm....my son and I both felt at home! The house was spacious, clean and in a very beautiful and safe area. I really enjoyed our morning coffees while getting to know each other. Thank you again and we hope to visit again!
