We are a active family of four who love to play, relax, ski, hike, cook and entertain on the weekends.

Victoria purchased this house in 1994

We purchased this property as a country escape on the weekends and summers. We feel we have the best of both worlds and with its 7 forested acres, it is a breath of fresh air the minute your car door opens and you breathe in the scent of the towering pines. We adore the beautiful setting in West Cornwall and the surrounding areas that compose the villages of Cornwall - nearby skiing at Mohawk Mountain, Cream Hill Lake, the covered bridge, the hiking trails, cycling in the foothills, the organic farmers' market, the local events - always fun, sometimes quirky, and the beauty of pristine Cream Hill Lake - interesting people and loads of activities beckon. The property has the feeling of a country retreat yet nearby cultural and sporting opportunities are a short drive away. I was smitten with the property the moment I drove down the long, winding, tree canopied driveway and I'm especially fond of the setting as it brings back memories of my childhood country home in the mountains of New Mexico.

Incredibly relaxing forest setting under 2 hours from the city or 30 minutes from Metro North - romantic getaway or perfect for families. Designer home with a seasonal guest house (not available in winter) located down a stone path, both with a mix of modernist and antique furnishings. Do nothing at all except nap in the hammock or get active with plenty of choices nearby. I love the views of the Berkshire mountains, sunsets from the kitchen and stone terrace and the massive stone fireplace that's perfect for enjoying a book and glass of wine. I love going to sleep to the sounds of a babbling brook in the background. My kids grew up skiing at nearby Mohawk Mountain, a mere 5 minute drive and now hurl themselves through the terrain parks at Butternut and Catamount (45 minute drives). Fall is my one of my favorite times - it's magical, the foliage is spectacular, great hiking weather and a photo opt awaits you at every turn.

GREAT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Great place to escape for some R&R. House had everything you need. The living in the main house was large and fun area to just hang around.Waking up to the sound of the brook near by was relaxing. We sat around the fire pit and took in the peacefulness of the area. Owners were great to deal with.
As far as our group goes the only thing missing would be a hot tub. lol

Would definitely book it again and recommend to others.

GREAT STAY, SPECIAL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay - the house is beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable. With the guest house and the layout of the bedrooms, there was plenty of space for us to spread out and the rooms were quiet enough for our kids to sleep peacefully even while we were enjoying the vast record collection. The kitchen is well-equipped, the fire pit and outdoor sitting areas are wonderful, and the owner is attentive and easy to get in touch with. We weren't able to get out much due to the weather, but the area is also lovely, with lots to do. We would love to go back for another stay sometime in the future!

THE CABIN IN THE WOODS

  • 5 of 5
Amazing rental property.

As advertised. Interior looks like something out of a Wes Anderson movie. It does not feel like a rental at all. Had 4 couples and there was more than enough space between the main house and guest house. Victoria was very helpful and provided all the information needed. The house is clean, well curated and has a great record collection. If you have never been to West Cornwall before, there is not much in town so make sure to provision accordingly. Two other notes - make sure to keep a flashlight around if you are going to go outside at night (it is beyond dark) and if your car is low to the ground take a slow down the driveway to avoid bottoming out.

Great property

IT WAS DEFINETELY A LUSH FOREST HIDE AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had the privilege of spending our summer vacation in this wonderful location. We spent 5 nights and 6 days. It was very tranquil, yet also provided us with lots of things to do. We were a group of 10 and there was plenty of room for all of us. The kids really enjoyed roasting hot dogs and making smores in the outdoor pit. There were plenty of trails plus a soothing babbling brook behind the house. The owner was very helpful in providing us with useful information regarding the surrounding areas. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in Cornwall, CT. I would definitely recommend this property to others. You won't be disappointed.

WONDERFUL WEEKEND IN THE WOODS

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful home in the woods. The house and guest house are beautifully decorated and come with everything one needs to feel comfortable. The grounds were charming and inviting. Vicky, our host, was very receptive to our needs and very generous in sharing her knowledge of the area. My family and I had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this rental.
