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.
Don is a wonderful host--warm, welcoming, patient, and laid back. The property is beautiful! The cottage is really well maintained, and completely furnished. I'd love to come back.
Great place. Is just as idyllic as it looks in the pictures. Don is the perfect host.
Don was a fabulous host and the house was immaculate. We had such a great time, the house is a great place in a beautiful location and we would definitely stay here again!
This cottage was the perfect secluded escape.. has a beautiful porch in the back with a view of the running stream. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would def recommend this to anyone who wants a quiet escape in a beautiful, natural New England setting. Hope to return in the near future!
Thanks to Don for being such a kind and gracious host :)
The cottage was lovely and the surroundings beautiful. Don is an interesting, helpful and generous host. We had a great stay. Would definitely recommend.
Don is such a fabulous host and the cottage is to die for. Such a relaxing, perfect trip.
We had a great stay! The cottage was just as described. It was very comfortable and clean and easy to find. Don was helpful and friendly but very respectful of our privacy as well! Loved the outdoor fireplace.
We came back to Don's for our second writing retreat and we can't wait to come back. He's a great host and the house is beautiful and the property is so fun to walk around. Again, we can't wait to come back!
Don was the best host and the property is breathtaking. Such an awesome getaway and so close to NYC.
Will definitely be back.
If I could give more stars here I would! Best airbnb experience one could ask for. My friends and I came here looking to escape the city Labor Day weekend and the cottage was the perfect getaway. Don was an amazingly warm, welcoming and generous host, leaving us grapes, fresh muffins, and milk when we first arrived. He also took the time to give us detailed maps around the area on the best places to go hiking, which was so thoughtful. The cottage was beyond beautiful, an incredibly cozy place to stay. The property is very scenic with woods for hiking, and tranquil nights listening to the gentle rush of the trout stream. It was so peaceful. The pictures don't do this place justice. Thanks so much again Don! All of us look forward to coming back!
