About This Listing
We are offering a lovely and simple room with a queen size bed, writing desk and a full closet in a beautiful and eclectic 4 bedroom home in Southern Connecticut. Our house was built in 1920 and maintains historic charm with a modern touch. We have a large backyard, garden and front porch, kitchen, dishwasher, washer, dryer, large living room and dining room, wireless Inet, and 1.5 baths for shared use. The house is in a safe, family neighborhood close to Rt 8, The Merrit Parkway (15), and I 95. It takes under 10 minutes to get to the Shelton Corporate Park. It is in walking distance to the town's river walk, farmers market, restaurants and coffee shop. Also, we are just a 20 minute ride to YALE/New Haven and an easy commute to NYC (about 1.5 hours). We believe that eating right is not the only way to good health. Laura is a Certified Yoga Instructor, Reiki Master/Teacher and Doug is a Holistic Lifestyle Coach. Join us (if you'd like) for morning chi gong, or meditation. (Check availability if interested in energy work, yoga or coaching). We have lots of books for your use during your stay, a meditation room, lots of quiet space outdoors to sit and relax. We can also refer you to places to go and things to do in the area and surrounding. We are friendly and outgoing and will ensure that you have a pleasant stay.

The house is spectacular but the pair that make it a home--and you feel warmly welcomed in it--are a dynamic duo. I would stay with them any time and, in fact, am planning on it.
You will enjoy your stay with Laura and Doug. They are generous and hospitable, and their house is gorgeous. I highly recommend staying with them!
They were super friendly, genuine people and gave us some great suggestions for things to do. The room was comfortable and the location was great. They were very accommodating. Would definitely recommend.
Good people to stay with, well located.
Laura and Doug were so very gracious and welcoming. Their home is beautiful and very relaxing. The bedroom was very comfortable and quite spacious. They accepted us and our 20 month grandaughter with open arms! I'm thinking not everyone would welcome such a young toddler like they did. Both Laura and Doug were very helpful. Laura cooked a delightful all organic breakfast that was delicious....all but eggs from their garden! When we forgot several items they even mailed them to us. No easy task as one item was the dirty diapers in a bag!! They washed and dried them before sending!!!! Would we stay there again? In a heart beat!
