The Space

One bedroom with private bath and one bedroom with shared bath in my cozy West Hartford home. My home is close to West Hartford Center and Blueback Square and a lovely walk to Elizabeth Park Rose Garden. As a teacher, I have an early start to my day, but am happy to leave cereal and fruit for you to enjoy! Full kitchen privileges for those who wish to prepare their own meals.
There are 2 bus lines within walking distance from my street which bring you to downtown Hartford headed east or Farmington headed west. My location is very convenient to area colleges, UCONN Law School and the UCONN Medical School.
My neigborhood is quiet and quaint! I love to meet new people visiting Connecticut and share my suggestions for terrific daytrips around the area! My favorite part of Airbnb is meeting, talking and getting to know wonderful people from all over the world!

  • Holly was a wonderful host and she has a beautiful home! She was incredibly flexible and very helpful when it came to suggestions about local attractions and places to eat. Comfortable atmosphere and a very welcoming home that is perfect for everyone. We can't wait to come back to CT and stay with Holly! We highly recommend staying with Holly!

  • I have little to add to the mass of positive reviews before me. Holly is an extremely welcoming host, and her home was a great place to stay while I was researching for a week at the nearby Hartford Seminary. Great place!

  • We are so happy to have stayed with Holly in her West Hartford Hideaway! She is such a warm and inviting person, very friendly, and her home is so cozy and comfortable. We had a great time, and really appreciated having access to such a homey place. The house was exceptionally neat, and very nicely decorated, and we felt totally at ease. Also, West Hartford is a very cute town - quite close to Hartford, but much more like a small town. We would definitely come back, and do hope to stay with Holly again. People like her are what make Air Bnb so awesome!

  • Holly is a great host in her cozy home. This is not a place of great luxury, but everything was well looked after and clean. We felt very welcome and indeed "at home". Holly was a great source of information and very interested in our experiences in West Hartford.

  • We had a great time staying at Holly's. She was very welcoming and gave us advice on the area for our house search. In just a few short days she made us feel like family, more than just airbnb guests. We would highly recommend her place to anybody and if we run out of room at our house for guests, her place will be where I recommend our guests to stay.

  • The West Hartford hideaway was very clean and charming home. I enjoyed chatting with Holly and meeting the dog Maggie (very sweet dog). The home is easy to get to and quiet. The kitchen is very nice and Holly leaves great breakfast items for you. I would highly recommend the West Hartford hideaway as a nice, quite place to stay in the Hartford area.

  • My wife and I were visiting my daughter studying in Wesleyan University. We stayed for 6 weeks in Holly's place till college spring break. Because of the unusually cold winter, we found ourselves spending a large part of the day in Holly's comfortable home. Holly was kind enough to open up her kitchen to us for our use. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay with Holly again if we are up in the West Hartford area in the future.

I am a science teacher in Newington, CT always looking for adventure. I have 2 children. My daughter, Paula lives in the area after graduating from James Madison University in Virgina in 2012. My son Michael is moving to Colorado to attend the University of Colorado in Boulder. I love meeting new people and sharing my home. I know the area well and can suggest ideas for dinner, daytrips, biking, hiking or kayaking spots! West Hartford Center and Blueback Square are just minutes from my home and offer many fun and delicious discoveries!
