The property has many trails for hiking, and there is the opportunity (under a separate arrangement) to participate in a working cattle ranch featuring grass fed beef.
Located 5 miles from the Town of Litchfield, the property is in a very private area and is in the midst of a 700 acre grassfed beef farm ((URL HIDDEN) Surrounding the farm are 2000 protected acres of the Waterbury Water Company. Litchfield is a short drive away and features numerous bars and restaurants, museums, nature preserves, antique shops and general sight seeing opportunities.
The Barn is about 2 hours drive from both New York and Boston. The city of Waterbury, CT is about a 15 minute drive away, and from there you can take a train or bus to New York City.
There are no other properties of this size in the Town of Litchfield and few others this size in the state of Connecticut. The farm it is in is one of the largest cattle ranches in Connecticut. A working farm experience is available at an additional cost, depending on group size and how involved you want it to be.

I grew up on this farm, spent 30 years on Wall Street, and moved back here full time in 2006. In addition to managing this property (and 7 other longer term rentals), I'm a full time farmer with 160 grass fed cows, some pigs, and some chickens on the farm.
