FALL IN LOVE WITH NEW ENGLAND any time of year at our four season retreat in the Litchfield hills - Our waterfront home is on Connecticut's 76-acre Park Pond in the foothills of the Berkshires, offering scenery and proximity to many wonderful activities.
ACTIVITIES: Leaf-peep, nature and bird watch, hawks and eagles nest in the trees and turtles and beavers can be seen in the coves. Fish and kayak in the fall and spring. Snow shoe, ski, skate and ice fish in the winter. Swim, tube and sail in the summer.
THE HOUSE: The great room offers a stunning view of the water. Sliding glass doors lead to a large deck with outdoor table and barbeque grill. The lawn below ends at our small beach and dock.
In addition to the great room on the first floor there is 1 bedroom with a queen bed, a lovely new bathroom with tub/shower, and an eat-in kitchen. The second floor has two more bedrooms one with twin beds and a water view and one with a daybed and mountain view. There is a brand-new bathroom with generous sized-shower on the second floor. Good airflow and ceiling fans in every bedroom maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the house. There is no air conditioning. Guest find they do not need it. Forced air heat keeps the house toasty in winter.
THE ENVIRONMENT: Our guests are encouraged to go 'green' by being conservative in the use of water and soap. For this reason, the property is not appropriate for large parties. There is no dish or clothes washer. Cable television and high-speed internet is available and you can watch DVDs on the color TV in living room and downstairs bedroom. A telephone is available for local, emergency and calling card calls.
Children are always welcome but their adults must understand that this property is on the water. Children must be watched at all times. We cannot accommodate pets or smokers.
THE AREA: Four state forests are nearby and every drive is a scenic one. In winter, the pond is used for cross-country skiing, snow-mobiling, snow shoeing and ice fishing. Downhill skiing is 15 minutes driving distance from the house. This is a quiet rural area. There are a few other homes and two summer camps on the pond.
The town of Winsted, three miles away, offers many activities including antique and curio shops, festivals and community events, restaurants, wineries, go carts, batting cages, a free-public skate park, a multiplex movie theatre for everyone, and a dinner movie theater with liquor license for people over 21.

This photo was taken at Burr Pond State Park, just a few miles from our waterfront cottage on Park Pond. This is a very special community remote enough to feel a million miles away, and just an hour or two from New England's big cities, Boston, Hartford, Springfield, New York, Stamford and Westchester County.
