The Space


We will be closed for the months of January, February, and March but plan ahead and book for next summer. We fill up fast.

The guest house is in a private setting surrounded by stunning stone walls and next to a vernal pond. Birds sing; frogs croak; owls hoot. Walking distance to a shell beach and the beautiful CT coastline.

Very close to picturesque Stony Creek and Guilford--historic towns in Connecticut. Great restaurants; and hiking. Gorgeous oceanside Hammonasset State Park in neighboring Madison, CT--and nature preserve.

This guest house is just a few years old and beautifully sited and designed by STUDIOATE; an architectural firm formed by two Yale Architecture graduates.

Perfect for a couple or up to 4 people. The guest house has a private bedroom with a King size tempeurpedic bed; high ceilings; Modern Bath with beautiful fixtures and shower; large glass windows and doors. We also provide a pull out sofa with full bedding in the front room that overlooks the pond that will accommodate 2 adults or children for an additional $25 per person. A gorgeous Front Deck overlooks a frog pond. NOTE: There is no additional fee if you have young children that do not require an extra bed setup.

The guest house is equipped with AC/Heat; full bedding; towels; a kitchenette that includes a refrigerator; sink, french press with delicious coffee; hot water pot; microwave; cups, glasses, plates and bowls. (There are no cooking facilities in the guest house.)

Also Wifi is provided.

Short distance to Westwood hiking trails (Land Conservation Trust), shell beach; historic coastline of ct; great restaurants, great shops, antique stores, and museums.

Neighborhood is friendly and quiet at night.

Easy access from I95. Parking is included.

Guest Access

The guest house is located at the back of a 3 acre property with its own driveway and parking. Guests have access to a beautiful setting overlooking a vernal pond and very private with stone walls that surround the guest house.

Interaction with Guests

We will greet our guests and hand off the key. We are always available for any questions and/or assistance with information, but we leave our guests to enjoy the beautiful private setting of the guest house to themselves.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is beautifully layed out with houses typically on 1-4 acre lots. Very quiet at night and directly off a scenic road that winds through the shores of Connecticut. 1/2 mile from the coastline and beautiful bird watching. Egrets; osprey; blue herons; kingfishers, etc.

Getting Around

A car is highly recommended since we are not close to public transportation. We are located near the shoreline of Connecticut directly off a beautiful scenic road. The closest town, Guilford, is located approx 2-3 miles away where you will find great restaurants, shops, a new french bakery, and the town green.

Other Things to Note

You are welcome to bring your bikes; running shoes; and for the warmer months--kayaks; canoes. There are great hiking/running trails close by, challenging biking; and great beaches not too far to launch your boat and/or take a quick swim.
