For peace and quiet and nice comfortable bed, whether a quick overnight or a weekend stay, Campbell Hill Farm is a wonderful retreat from the busy world. A birders paradise.

The space

Campbell Hill Farm is a unique setting for guests to stay while seeing the sites and traveling through New England. The house is a ten sided rustic/contemporary set into a bucolic hillside with views that offer the comfort and quiet of country life. Your stay here would afford you the privacy of your own bath and bedroom with a very comfy king size bed.

Stroll the grounds in the evening, relax on the deck or enjoy an evening out for dinner at some the best restaurants around at the local casinos or drive to the coast for fresh seafood.

Breakfast can be served in my comfy rustic kitchen or out on the deck under the great oak tree. There will be 2 choices for breakfast. Either way you will find yourself feeling at home here. You will meet my Pomeranian and one cat. Horses are boarded here at my barn and are nice to look at but the owners prefer that guests do not intermingle. Certainly you can walk to barn to see them and bring a carrot.

If you want to stay and see what south eastern CT has to offer there is Mystic Seaport, Village and Aquarium 1/2 hour away, Mohegan Sun Casino, Foxwoods Casino and Mashantucket Pequot Musem not more than 8 miles away which offer a variety dining and entertainment , or drive down to the Rhode Island shore for beaches and more. There the CT wine trail with Preston Ridge Vineyard right next door and Maugle Sierra VIneyard 15 minutes away and several others at nearby locations, the 18 hole River Ridge Golf Course less than 6 miles away. However if you are coming to simple get away for a day or two to rest you will find the house quiet and relaxing. There is wifi and Deluxe Scrabble.

So please get in touch with any questions you may have and I will do my best to accommodate you on your visit to Campbell Hill Farm and make it a pleasant experience.

One weeks advance notice would be appreciated.

Our stay with Elenor could not have been more seamless. The entire process was stress-free and easy. Eleanor and her sister were very accommodating of our schedule and easy-going. Eleanor's home is beautiful, comfortable and unique. We immediately felt at home at Campbell Hill farm. We left feeling recharged and relaxed!

This was a great, and easy stay. The check-in was simple. The rooms were very comfortable. Eleanor's breakfast was delicious (blueberry pancakes and scrambled eggs). The location is truly great; 10 minutes from Foxwoods, surrounded in all directions by wineries, 25 minutes from Mystic and Westerly beaches, and some good local restaurants. Eleanor's farm and 10 sided house are great. You feel immediately at peace when you make the turn up her driveway. The horses, fruit trees, and sites are wonderful. The architecture of the house is really cool. I found myself staring all over the rooms, at every corner. The bathroom was large and clean, and the bed was very comfortable. Eleanor is personable and easy to chat with. She made the stay comfortable and easy for us. I enjoyed our breakfast and evening chats. We felt 100% at home during our stay. I would absolutely recommend Eleanor's farm to anyone looking to stay in the area.

Stayed at Eleanor's place while attending a concert at the casino. Loved the location of Eleanor's house. So close to the casino but has that country feel. Would definitely stay here again. Homemade blueberry muffins for breakfast were delicious!

This is an architectural gem of a house, completely unique, nestled beneath gorgeous oaks. Birding on the farm was fantastic, an idyllic and too short stay. Eleanor is a gracious and lovely host. A perfect BNB stay!

As a guest my needs were pretty minimal -- just a place to crash for the evening and some privacy in the morning so I could get enough sleep. No problems with any of that, and Eleanor's place was a bit of an architectural wonder! Very cool place to spend an evening, and only a short drive away from Mohegan Sun. Would definitely consider staying again and recommend to others!

Response from Eleanor:
There has been some problem with wifi that I need to remedy. I will mention that on my profile as I have not had this problem until recently. Sorry for the inconvenience. And as to my communication being delayed I was at work and could not respond immediately. My apologies for that.

Stayed at Eleanor's beautiful home during a visit to Foxwoods for an evening show. Perfect location just 15 mins away from Foxwoods. Just confirm the address and what to look for with Eleanor before heading out. The AirBNB provided address took us to a house a few yards further down the road. Would love to come back during other parts of the year to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The breakfast and conversation with Eleanor before we left made for the perfect weekend getaway. Would definitely return in the future.

One of my favorite things to do is host dinner parties for my friends and family. Being creative in the kitchen is a lot of fun for me. So I can only imagine that this will pass on to hosting for airbnb travelers.

I have been a professional artist for 20 years and my work is shown in galleries around the country. My studio is here on the property. Its the best of both worlds to be working and living in a place that you love. The ambience of nature is a constant inspiration. This farm also has an ancestral connection for me and I have found myself feeling very grounded here over the years. This connection brings meaning and an intrinsic quality to my work and my life. For those visitors who have serious interest in the arts I would be happy to arrange a studio visit.

My animals are also a big part of my life. My dog and cat and animals at the barn bring an added dimension to daily life.
