Where you’ll be

Hamden, Connecticut, United States

While we are only a short drive to restaurants, shops and the center of town, our northern West Rock Ridge neighborhood makes you feel like you're on vacation in the woods. Our property is lovingly maintained: perennial gardens, a large fire pit and quiet spaces for sitting.

We are a 5 minute walk to a town-maintained small lake (fishing and kayaks/canoes permitted) and various hiking trails that connect to the larger Naugatuck State Forest, Sleeping Giant State Park and Lake Wintergreen State Park trail systems. Bring your mountain bike and/or your boots and enjoy the great outdoors!

During your stay

We love, love, love sharing our special place with guests!

We are a couple who mostly work from home with a young adult child who is more out and about than around. We welcome requests to make your accommodations as comfortable as possible and are here as guides to the surrounding area. We'll be sure to respect your needs for quiet and privacy and balance that with opportunities to say hello and share a friendly chat.

Little details are important to us. You will find fresh flowers, chocolate and good coffee/tea (on request) are a part of your Airbnb experience here. Seasonally, the gardens are spectacular! There are many spots on the property that have a sanctuary-like feel.

We look forward to meeting you!
