About Maria Oskwarek
We fell in love with this house at first sight, and have spent many memorable years enjoying it with family and friends. When we travel, we often rent through this site, and have always had good experiences. Now we would like to let others enjoy the comfort and relaxation our home offers.
Maria Oskwarek purchased this House in 2006
Why Maria Oskwarek chose Litchfield
John grew up in nearby Kent, Connecticut and still has family in the area. We always loved the peace and beauty of Litchfield County, and its appeal has grown with the addition of great restaurants and other attractions. Litchfield is beautiful year-round; enjoy swimming and boating in summer, brilliant foliage in fall, and skiing in winter.
What makes this House unique
We chose this home as our country getaway because of its architectural design and details, large wooded property for privacy, and unique features like bonus rooms and a butler's pantry. We have put great care into renovating and updating the house and property, and you will feel right at home. Lounge in the pool or spa in summer, or cozy up by the fire in colder weather. Private yet conveniently located, this property offers the best of Litchfield.

This was our 2nd visit to John and Marie’s beautiful vacation home. Again, it was wonderful.
The house is very spacious, well appointed, and oh so quiet. Beautiful outdoor space with Mother Nature.
The home owner- so thoughtful, milk, juice, coffee, and wine, with bread and cookies waiting for you.
Litchfield is a great place to roam, explore and eat. You really should try it out.
Perfect weekend getaway
We had 4 families stay at this home for a long weekend with our 5 young children. The house had plenty of room to fit us all comfortably and was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. All good quality kitchen utensils I might add. The pool was beautiful and very clean. The owners were very responsive to all questions we had. We happened to be in town during the Goshen County Fair which was a 15 minute drive and so much fun for our children. The weekend happened to be really cool at nigh so the no AC was not an issue as the fans kept our rooms very cool. Can't recommend this house enough.
Delightful hosts, lovely home and grounds
John and Maria were wonderful hosts, welcoming and responsive.
The house and grounds are beautiful and well-maintained, and our entire family (2 parents, 5 children) had a wonderful time!
Thanks for the great vacation!
This house was exceptional! It was spacious and beautifully decorated. From the gourmet kitchen to the plush bath and pool towels, everything was just lovely. The salt water pool and spa were fabulous. The location of the house was perfect; off the road on a wooded lot, but only a three mile drive into quaint Litchfield. The owners did many things to make our stay that much more special. We had wine, delicious fresh bread and cookies upon our arrival. Coffee and fixings were there for us, too. The owners went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. An exceptional property!
Lovely property. Well stocked. Very spacious and clean. Very nice entertainment and sound systems
Lovely area and town nearby. Had a great time.
Thank you for your positive review. We appreciate your letting us know that the only drawback you found was the lack of air conditioning. We're really glad that it didn't prove to be a problem during your stay.
Great Experience / Very Impressive
My wife and I got married recently at White Memorial down the street and we stayed here for four nights. This place basically served as a common ground spot for our close friends and everyone was very much into it. The pool and backyard area is much larger than the pictures show, and the interior is spacious ,clean, and incredibly beautiful. Checking in and out was easy as can be and overall I would say that I felt lucky to be able to host friends and family here for what was a very special weekend for us. Highly reccomend!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We're happy we could accommodate you for your very special weekend!
