About This Listing
The cottage, surrounded by 30 acres of open space is only 1.25 hours from NYC. It's a great place for a relaxing getaway. Enjoy the seasonal swimming pool, patio, cable, WiFi internet and close proximity to Fairfield/Litchfield County attractions. There is one large bedroom with a queen bed, plus a fold out queen sofa in the living area. There is another small bedroom with a futon, suitable for a child. The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen area, with dining table. Or dine on the screened in porch, above the stream. Towels and linens are furnished and there is a small washer/dryer in the closet. As we are in the country, you will need a car. Some guests from NYC take Metro North to Danbury and have Enterprise Car Rental meet them. The cottage is well situated for day trips to state parks, museums in Hartford and New Haven and several wineries on the CT Wine Trail.
Absolutely beautiful location away from all the city traffic and noise. Don was AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME! We are used to very rural driving and he was there for all kinds of assistance from what highways to take once we hit PA to how to get to Yale to a day trip to NYC. We couldn't wait to come "home" to our home away from home each night. (Oh and Don called to let me know he put milk and oj in the fridge cause he knew we would be in late the first night.) Are you looking at staying? JUST DO IT!!!
Don's place was amazing! The cottage is spacious and so well put together and his land is beautiful! Don also left us cinnamon buns, milk, orange juice and bananas for a little something for breakfast. It was great! The only down side was on our end, which was the stay was far too short. I hope to go back for a longer stay sometime soon!!
The cottage was the perfect location for a weekend away! It is a tranquil space overlooking a babbling brook. There were a number of spaces to sit and read a book, sip on tea or chat with friends. The house had all the amenities we needed. And Don was a wonderfully helpful host! We hope we can back and visit again!
My time here in the cottage in the winter months was magical in every way. Every where you look there is something to reflect on, be in wonder about and be uplifted by. Just last week the stream began to run free from the snow and it is truly a delight. Don was an exceptional host. I look forward to when I am able to stay here again.
Don's cottage was probably more picturesque in reality than in the photos. We had a wonderful time at the cottage and Don was always there to assist and support us when we needed it, but yet allowed us our privacy. The house was very clean and well maintained. He was an excellent host and had milk and juice and a tart that he thoughtfully left for us. We would recommend his place to anyone and would indeed put our own friends and family there. The only drawback that we experienced was the weather and even the wonderful hospitality of Don Dempsey's could not manage Mother Nature. We hope to see the place again in the summer when it would be utterly divine.
From the booking to the check out, an absolutely first class experience. Don was super easy to work with. He was traveling when we stayed and still made arrangements for "Susan" to be our gracious host. We felt completely at ease on the property, which btw, exceeds the already beautiful photos. What a special place!

About the Host, Don
Photography, jazz, kayaking and life at the mill are among my favorite things. Working as a commercial photographer for over 30 years, I've done my share of traveling. The best trips always involve meeting great people, who know the location and love to share their knowledge. And wherever I go, I'm always searching for a great Thai restaurant. As a host, I try and return the favor.
