The Space

Choose one of TWO luxurious guest rooms in our spacious, airy and sunny house, nestled in a woodland setting so quiet that you can hear sounds of the waterfall from the nearby brook. The bedrooms are located on a private second level, away from the main family living quarters. Both bedrooms have access to a pristine private bath with a shower and double sink. Each bedroom (one with a queen bed and the other full size) is supremely comfortable, with a sitting area, television, DVD player and ample closet space. Each bed features soft linens, Temper-pedic pads for extra comfort, and four down-alternative pillow, for the most restful sleep. The adjoining center foyer features a secretary/writing desk for your use. The bedrooms have access to a completely private studio/living space opening onto a second story deck; enjoy morning coffee outdoors at the bistro café table for two, while observing multiple species of birds and our visiting deer. The living/studio space also doubles as a mini-kitchen, complete (email hidden), tea kettle, assortment of teas and coffee, dishes, microwave and your own refrigerator. And, as an extra bonus, the studio space sleeps an additional four (one full size futon and a twin trundle bed, with a second twin that pulls out), a favorite place for children and teens.
This restful setting gives you the sounds of nature stars at night, but is situated only 1.25 miles from all shopping at Bishop’s Corner in West Hartford, as well as a variety of restaurants ranging from Harry’s Pizza (famous throughout Connecticut) to Sakura Garden, an unlimited Asian buffet known for its superb sushi. Our house is minutes from local hiking/biking trails, and multiple outdoor activities including snow skiing (downhill and x-country), kayaking, canoeing and tubing on the Farmington River. We are a walk to the local bus line into Hartford, 19 miles to Bradley International Airport, and less than 6 miles to Union Station, with Amtrak and bus transportation to New York, Boston or anywhere in between and beyond. Other distances (by car or bus) include: 4.5 miles to University of CT Law School, 4.6 miles to the University of CT Medical School in Farmington, 6.5 miles to the Hartford Convention Center, 5.8 miles to the XL Center in downtown Hartford, 6.2 miles to the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum (one of the oldest in the country), 3.5 miles to Elizabeth Park and its famous Rose Gardens (all designed by Olmstead, the designer of Central Park) and 3 miles to Veterans Memorial Ice Skating Rink.
Parking is available adjoining the house on our spacious driveway. We are a physically fit and active professional couple with flexible schedules, but we are generally around on weekends. Our family includes two very friendly and well-behaved cats who act like dogs. We are non-smokers so smoking is not permitted anywhere on or in the premises. Our home is perfect for students, professionals, or short-term travelers to the area, looking for a home away from home.
