Overview

Washington Estate Rental Photos and Description

Chateau / Country House, 5 Bedrooms (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-11)

Hidden Valley is a unique place. A sophisticated and intimate property overlooking a breathtaking nature preserve of the same name in the hills of Washington, Connecticut in Litchfield County.

Hidden Valley's rooms include an exquisite semi-attached guest room, with private entry, a king size bed, en-suite full bath and French windows facing the front terrace with far south-eastern view. Extensive library present at the premises. A master suite with sweeping valley views and private dressing room and thermal spa bath. Two additional rooms with shared bath and a children's third floor nursery/playroom with three beds. Décor and setting provide American comfort with European antique furnishings. The valley side of the house is surrounded by a flagstone terrace with seating over the full length, accessible by French doors across the entire side of the house. The end of the terrace includes a separate seating area and a heated dipping pool. Nestled between mature plantings is a children's play structure and zip wire.

Located within a few miles of the picturesque town center of Washington, the Mayflower Inn & Spa, 20 min. to Mohawk Ski Area, 5 min to New Preston and Lake Waramaug, Hidden Valley is the perfect location to enjoy multiple country and fine dining options, hiking, upscale shopping, exceptional antiquing, historic homes and gardens, and other outdoor activities nearby.

The house can be rented for more extended visits during the summer months and over the major holidays. For the rest of the year the house is available as a Bed and Breakfast or short term rental for family reunions or a romantic get-away.

Hidden Valley welcomes discerning guests who are hoping to find a private escape and comfortable lodging, 2 hours drive from New York City and an easy hour from Bradley International Airport in Hartford/Springfield. It is close to many boarding schools in the Litchfield Hills of Northwestern Connecticut.

What makes this estate unique

As Hidden Valley is on a hill and dead-end road, there is absolute peace and quiet with gorgeous views over Hidden Valley-Steep Rock Nature Reserve.Two wood burning fireplaces provide comfort and extra warmth during the winter. The wrap around flagstone terrace provides a unique setting for summer dining, lounging or entertaining.

Exquisite

Our family has visited the Hidden Valley Bed & Breakfast several times now, and each time, we are amazed at how it was just as good as we remembered it. The house is so comfortable. Fluffy down pillows, comfy blankets, luxurious marble bathrooms, and elegant living quarters with a cozy fire going on winter nights. The house itself is absolutely stunning -- it is colonial meets modern so that it is comfortable, and very, very clean, while still offering you the feeling of visiting a historic part of the country. The grounds are beautiful isolated up a very long drive and on a hill, with the rolling hills bordering on local farms. Best of all, your hostess, Regine, is absolutely charming and lovely. We will definitely be returning again.
