The Space

AN AUTHENTIC LOG CABIN IN THE BERKSHIRE MOUNTAINS OF LITCHFIELD COUNTY CONNECTICUT. Our log cabin is located on seven wooded acres with a lovely private swimming pond, fire pit and sandy beach. Inside our cabin, a soaring beamed ceiling, skylights, and stone fireplace enhance the rustic charm.

The cabin is furnished with everything you need for your stay, including bed linens, towels, kitchen equipment, cooking staples and basic toiletries.

The house is on two levels. A master bedroom with Queen sized bed and loft bedroom with three twin beds are on the second floor along with a convertible sofa on the large landing. This makes sleeping for six on the 2nd floor.

On the first floor, a double bedroom and a library with pull out sofa provides private sleeping accommodations for 4 more people.

Playtime in the basement with pool and air hockey. There is also a television set with DVD player.

A large front porch overlooks the garden and into the woods. A screened/sliding glass door sun porch on the side of the house looks out onto the path to the swimming hole. We have a large 6-8 person hot tub on this sun porch.

A meadow in the back of the house is the perfect place for kids to play. We have a large trampoline here. Beyond the meadow is more woods for them to explore.

Our pond is large, cool and refreshing. Children can swim and wander along the edge looking for tadpoles and frogs. In the center of the pond is a mini island for more exploring.

The log cabin is close to skiing, the public town pond and recreation area, four state parks, Music Mountain and tubing on the Farmington River.

This is the setting for a family vacation you will always remember.

  • The cabin was lovely and very well prepared. We had a really wonderful time. I highly recommend this cabin for getaway and fun. The kitchen is wonderfully enormous and well kept. The hot tub on the enclosed porch is wonderful.

    Walks in the woods, games of pool, breakfast by the fire and nights in the hot tub.

    I highly recommend the cabin as well as the owner Christine and her husband Jim. Excellent experience!

  • This cabin is even better than it looks in pictures. Our winter weekend was beautiful and we couldn't have been happier with the house or the quiet woods as we were blanketed by snow. They had everything we needed, Christine was professional and easy to deal with.

  • Great experience. The house was well-prepared for our arrival, with all the details (down to the towels next to the hot tub) worked out.

    The house itself is lovely and a little rustic, just like the photos. It's nestled the woods, with good hiking and walking opportunities nearby and, indeed, right outside the door. Check out the noble cows (and bulls) nearby ...

  • Everything about the cabin was amazing. A very spacious place, with plenty of things to do, I only wished we had more time to enjoy all of them. The hosts have really done a great job with signs throughout the house to let you know where things are, or how to take care of certain things, makes it really easy to not have to spend a lot of time looking for everything. Hopefully we'll be able to go again next year.

About
I am a writer, blogger and a published author of aviation-related books, a married woman in her mid fifties. I have four grown children. I live in Connecticut and travel about 6 months out of the year for work, usually on my own. My first time using airbandb was in Abu Dhabi in 2011. It was a great experience. Since then I've used airbnb about 40 times as a guest all over the world. I enjoyed it so much that in 2012 I became an airbnb host at my home in a New York city suburb and also at 2 Berkshire Mountain vacation properties in Litchfield County, Connecticut. When people "get it" that this is a home stay, not a hotel, the experience can be fantastic. I have met some amazing people and stayed in some amazing homes. I am airbnb's biggest fan.
