We had a wonderful vacation at this beautifully furnished place in Bantam. The gardens and terrace were lovely, and we were lucky with the weather. The location is great - lots of wonderful restaurants and shops nearby, but still in the country. One word of caution: there are steep stairs and several trip hazards that could be problematic for small children or elders.
Absolutely loved this beautiful country cottage in Suffield, CT! The location is ideal. Close to shops, restaurants, the airport, Hartford and Springfield, Mass.. The house was spotless and my hosts Nancy & her husband made sure to leave an information packet about the house plus supplied the house well with all the toiletries, linens, towels, and kitchen ware. It also had terrific WiFi which worked perfectly. And to add even more, it has air conditioning supplied by individual room air conditioners. There are also a number of electric fans in the house. Even though the outside temps were in the 90’s, I was very comfortable!
The 3 bedrooms have a twin, a queen and a king bed. I slept on the queen bed which was very comfortable. The king is on the second floor where there is a second bath with a shower. The first floor bath has a tub and hand held shower. The kitchen was spotless and well appointed. Just adjacent to the kitchen is a dining area. The house is larger in real life than in the pictures. It also has a pretty rear garden and sitting area. The house faces the Suffield Town green and is in a historic district surrounded by a number of lovely old colonial homes. I am from the area near this house so the convenience of the location enabled me to easily visit family and friends.
It has a washer and drier in the cellar but I had to inform my hosts that the washer failed while trying to do a load of laundry. They were very nice and will probably replace it with a new machine shortly.
I so enjoyed staying in this home that I will likely rent it again if I make future plans to again visit the area! The James Hall Cottage, built in 1794, is a historic jewel and anyone who rents this property will leave it with a smile on their faces!
