About Karen James

I am an alternative health care provider with an in home office on the premises. Experienced hiker, who loves the outdoors and would be happy to assist you with information. My husband and I love to travel. Animal lovers, too!

Karen James purchased this house in 2003

Why Karen James chose New Milford

This 7 1/2 acre property is on a designated Scenic Road, with many summer/ vacation homes around. We are at the top of the mountain with no homes in view! There is a walking trail on the property, and a trail to a rock ledge, and a tall pine forest where eagles nest!

What makes this house unique

If you stay during the spring to fall months, you may hear and see the Eagles that live in the tall pine trees on our property! The spring flowers and the beautiful colors of the fall leaves are wonderful sights to enjoy. There is so much to see in the surrounding area, including rivers, waterfalls, mountains.

Tranquil spacious comfortable house in the woods of New Milford

  • 4 of 5
I went here for a weekend with 2 friends, but the house could have accommodated many more. The living room has a wall of windows that looks out on a extra large porch with a fabulous view of the surrounding woods. We spent a good amount relaxing on the porch and watching the butterflies in the trees. We were there for my dad's memorial service that weekend and the spacious house and ample parking allowed us to invite over family and friends after the reception. The master bedroom has access to the large porch, and both upper level bedrooms has walk out balconies too - and all have great light. The kitchen is more than adequate with plenty of cooking utensils and glasses and plates. We enjoyed the kitties too ! The house was selected because of the location but it exceeded expectations and would rent again. I would certainly recommend to others !

Owner's Response: Our spacious home does accommodate many people! We are so glad that you were able to enjoy the light filled rooms, huge deck, and our sweet, friendly kitties. The numerous butterfly bushes around the deck and the property attract many butterflies and hummingbirds, and we are pleased that you were here when they are in full bloom! We look forward to hosting you again.

Perfect Picutresque Getaway in Complete Solitude

  • 5 of 5
If you appreciate solitude and the wonders of nature, then this spacious home set in a rural but scenic area may be the perfect place to spend your vacation. This was certainly true of the time spent here as experienced by my husband, daughter, and me. Our hosts were very accommodating as well as gracious, and ensured we had what we needed during our stay. The photos accurately describe the home, yet the spacious and nicely decorated home is far more impressive in person. I was in total awe of the artwork. The amenities are also accurately described. We had access to videos, board games, and the Internet. Additionally, being new to the area, our hosts were not only knowledgable about the area and local attractions, but were always willing to answer our questions before and during the trip. Though we spent time in Milford and New Haven, we enjoyed the conveniences of shopping in New Milford as well as exploring the diverse shops in Kent. New Milford had plenty to offer, and we were never disappointed. Then in Kent, a short but scenic drive, an extra bonus for us was exploring the picturesque Bulls Bridge area and hiking along the Appalachian Trail as suggested by our hosts. What an incredible experience! I definitely recommend this home as an opportunity to enjoy your vacation, purge yourself of stress, and indulge in absolute serenity. Thank you to our hosts for making our first vacation to Connecticut a wonderful experience!

Owner's Response: We were pleased to host you and your family. The quiet and solitude are a very unique aspect of this property. It is a place to unwind, enjoy nature, and listen to the birds sing! Bull's Bridge and the AT are some of the prettiest sights in the area, and we were all too happy to introduce these gems to you.
Our antiques, artwork, eclectic decor, and spacious home are things that we take pride in, to offer a very different experience to travelers.
We hope that you will stay again!

beautiful home in the woods

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent a wonderful 3 days staying in this beautiful property near Candlewood lake. The house is extremely accurately represented by the photos on the web site, is located high on a hill side with gorgeous views which you can make the most of as one side of the house is almost entirely comprised of windows, breathtaking! The house has everything you need (including the opportunity to have a reflexology session which my husband did and loved!) and we comfortably slept 9 (adult and older teens). On the deck overlooking the woods, we were able to both cook out then unwind in the hot tub, bliss. We have a boat moored on Candlewood lake which was a convenient 20mins from the property but we also had a great morning exploring Bulls falls. I really have only the highest recommendation for both the property and the helpfulness of the owners.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled that our house, views, hot tub, and grill were enjoyed by all! Also happy that the reflexology session was a hit! The property is so close to many beautiful sights. Glad you were able to see the Bulls Bridge waterfalls and "moonscape" as well as spend time at Candlewood Lake. We truly enjoyed hosting your family and friends.
