About Hilary Nicholson

This house was originally built in the 1950's by my father for my grandmother. My grandmother chose this site because of the lovely woods, nearby streams and a 150 year old white oak tree that now stands guard in the garden. I later expanded the house and added an upstairs for my children and myself when I used the house for weekends in the 1990's.

Why Hilary Nicholson chose Litchfield

Proceeds from your rental will assist the owners to support the Livingston Ripley Waterfowl Conservancy (LRWC) and allow for the continued conservation of wetland habitat and rare endangered waterfowl. LRWC is one of the pre-eminent facilities for breeding rare and endangered waterfowl in the world. Private tours are available for visiting guests who become members of LRWC. Public tours are always available. Checkout the Livingston Ripley Waterfowl Conservancy

What makes this house unique

The property is very peaceful. No cars or sirens can be heard. Birds abound in the woods and across the dirt road that passes by the house are duckponds filled with a variety of rare species. When the wind blows just so. you can sometimes hear a Trumpeter Swan call.........

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I had a great weekend at this property. It is very spacious, the pool is awesome- nice and warm for early September and the property manager is very helpful. It was great having 4 full bathrooms & a big yard for lots of yard games. I am definitely going to come back next year! Thanks for a great birthday weekend!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful 4th of July stay! The property manager was very nice and accommodating! The house was nice and clean. The pool was awesome the whole property was beautiful! I only wished there was AC in the ground floor of the house, as well. It got a litte hot mid day but the pool was a great way to cool off;)
We will definitely come back!!
Thanks!

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing week end in this 5 star house. The bedrooms are all spacious and well furnished. The kitchen is very well equipped which is important to us - we are French and love to cook. The house and property is very nice and well maintained. This house is one of the most beautiful we have rented in CT.
