I am a designer/ / producer.

Maureen Madden purchased this cottage in 1998

Northwestern Connecticut is one of the most beautiful places in our great country and a very special part of New England.

It is so unique, peaceful and private. The proximity to the village and the local towns is important and convenient.

Lovely Cottage, Lovely Area

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I run a B&B in the Catskills. We wanted to get away for a few nights to relax, unwind, and decompress. This Cottage was the perfect choice for us; it met all of our desires and needs.

The Cottage itself is absolutely darling and full of charm. It is cozy and very well decorated. We appreciated the reclaimed wood used throughout the Cottage, the high ceilings, and all of the nature-themed decorations/details. There are plenty of windows, allowing an abundance of natural light and shades to block it out if desired. The living room is perfectly cozy and a great place to snuggle up and read a book or watch TV, the kitchen is adorable, the bedroom is perfect with a comfortable bed and lights over the bed for reading at night, and the bathroom has a nice, oversized shower.

The setting is tranquil; in a wooded area with a small river behind the Cottage. We enjoyed drifting off to sleep, and waking to, the gentle sound of the flowing river. Lake Waramaug is just a 30 second drive down the road. There are many wonderful restaurants and shops within 2 to 20 minutes, making it a perfect location.

It was simply perfect! Built and decorated with love and care, in an idyllic setting, private, cozy, peaceful, and in a great area. We intended to stay for 3 nights, but decided to stay a 4th. We will certainly return and highly recommend this to other couples looking for a quiet getaway. This is a very special place, so please be sure to respect and honor it.

Weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5
I spent a wonderful weekend at this lovely cottage. The cottage is so charming, warm and wonderfully renovated.The sound of the water as soon as you open the front door is such a delight. The pictures accurately reflect the appearance of the cottage - it is beautiful. The property was very clean, very well equipped and the bed was so, so comfortable. It was a true delight to spend the days discovering the local treasures covered with a light layer of snow. Most features are exactly as advertised. I didn't find a hair dryer as advertised (luckily, I brought my own), a music library, I couldn't get the TV in the bedroom to work, and I couldn't connect to the wireless internet ( I think more information was needed). These were all token issues that did not interfere in any way with a wonderful weekend at a lovely cottage.

Magical Place

  • 5 of 5
I stayed with my 3 small boys in this lovely cottage, while visiting family on Lake Waramaug. Location was fantastic, and description was right on. The pictures did not do the landscape justice. Gorgeous.My boys were in heaven, as was I, fishing, exploring and sitting by the river. The property was stocked and the owner could not have been more helpful, bringing us extra futon and linens, even showing my boys how to pick up a snapping turtle...and providing the bucket! We will hope to return next summer.
