Enjoy a safe, secluded fun get away in the woods! Frolic in the salt water pool, enjoy s'mores by a bonfire; or gaze at the stars while relaxing in the hot tub. Find yourself nestled in the forest with hiking trails, a waterfall, beautiful sunsets, and crisp, fresh country air.  

The space
Come escape for a getaway nestled in the woods! Soak in the sun and gaze at the stars. Have a blast with friends or family with your own private pool and hot tub!

We can host up to 10 - 12 people overnight; and a few more for a daytime event. The seasonal color changing salt water pool is open from May 15th through September 15th, with the attached hot tub open May 1st through October 1st. Please read through everything; most of your questions will be answered here.

Pricing is shown for up to 6 people.  Pricing increases based on the number of guests.  The charge for additional guests is $50 each per night. Airbnb adds on taxes and fees, so our prices don’t reflect your total charge.

A  two night minimum is required for weekend bookings from May 15th to September 15th. Single night bookings are available on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays year round.

Most groups stay together in the third floor suite with an open floor plan and aerobeds; which can sleep up to 10-12 people.  There is one additional bedroom available on the first floor with a full sized bed that can sleep 2 people.  During certain times, a third bedroom may be available.

Cleaning fees cover a small portion of our costs for hiring a cleaning crew to clean and disinfect the entire house,  set up and take down the beds,  launder all the bedding and towels, costs for pool cleaning and chemicals, toiletries, paper products,  supplies, utilities, etc.  The cleaning fees are higher now due to the pandemic. Guests are expected to pick up after themselves; including dishes and trash.  Disposable masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer will be available for your use free of charge. Please leave everything just as you found it.

We live on the property and are generally available for help with anything you need. We stay in a separate section of the house when hosting guests; giving you exclusive use of the main house, decks, yard, and pool area. We are on site if you need us; otherwise we stay out of sight in our separate quarters. In some cases, we can stay elsewhere giving you total privacy. (This option is not available for larger groups.)

Feel free to reach out with any questions; sometimes we can be flexible on certain things when possible. We want you to have fun!

Where you’ll be

Ashford, Connecticut, United States

Our home is secluded on 25 wooded acres; set 1/2 mile off the road. You cannot see any other houses from here. The neighborhood is very safe to walk in. We have beautiful hiking trails with small waterfalls right off our property.

Ticks are out; so we request that you use bug spray if you go into the woods at all. We have it for you.

Hey there!

We are super easy going, kind hearted people. Our home is large and spacious and offers plenty of privacy. We stay in a separate area of the home and give you exclusive use of the main house and grounds.

We are 60 years young; and very laid back. We are both medically retired due to chronic illness (Lyme disease, Myasthenia Gravis, Adrenal Insufficiency just so you don’t have to wonder!.) Tracy is a retired Clinical Social Worker who had a private practice until she retired to focus on her health and caring for our grandchildren. Blake is a retired marketing/sales executive who does some consulting now and then. Two of our adult children live at home. Cody is 26 and Camryn is 24.

We have a small dog named Archer; a Chiliar (chihuahua/ King Charles Cavalier mix.). He has a loud bark, but stays with us in our separate space. We also have three goats, Harper, Zander, and Atlas who are very friendly and docile.

We have a separate staircase and side door we use to come and go from the house without entering your space. Rooms are marked with signs.

We would like to know a little bit about you before you come to stay, so we will ask you for your full name, where you live, what brings you here, and anything else you care to share.

Blake is here to help with the pool, hot tub settings, bonfire, etc. and for anything you need. Otherwise you shouldn't see us, though you may hear us. Please let us know if our TV is too loud or we are making too much noise at any time!

We look forward to meeting you!
