The 1885 Farmhouse started as a country Gothic-revival church on the edge of farmland in Sharon Valley. Rebuilt in 1915 as a family farmhouse with adjacent farrier's shed. Rebuilt again in the 1990s as a weekend home. Litchfield County and the Hudson Valley might be the closest experience the USA has to Provençe and Gascony in the South of France. Walter and Karen became, in 2015, among the 7% of hosts that Airbnb designates as "Superhosts".

Walter and Karen's house provides a restful, comfortable experience. It has a wonderful personality and enjoys beautiful views of Sharon's exquisite open landscape, while being close to the town. We had a relaxing and refreshing weekend and would love to just move in!!
