Fantastic House

  • 5 of 5

This house is a gem - even better than advertised. The house is immaculate. The high ceilings and numerous windows make the place feel even bigger than it is. The beds are very comfy. My wife and I really enjoyed sitting in the rocking chairs on the porch after sunset. The owner is lovely and was happy to answer any and all questions. It is centrally-located in the area and is close to several restaurants, beaches, parks and markets and farmers markers. I highly recommend this house, and we cannot wait to come back again.

Wonderful Home With Lots of Sunlight ! !

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to CT in order to see my daughter graduate from Wesleyan University along with my wife and mother-in-law. Eventually, my son, daughter and her fiance stayed the last night with us in the home. The property is very close to Batam Lake and Columbia State Park (which is an interesting short hike). The grocery store is located near the home and there is a Farmers Market on Saturday mornings. There are lots of walkers and some cyclist in the area and the speed limit is only 25mph...so, it's a pretty laid back area. We enjoyed the home very much, everything is Sparkling Clean and the patio provides a nice gas grill along with patio furniture and a bench swing. The main floor has very high ceilings with many windows that provided a lot of natural lighting! We loved that! The property owners live next door and are wonderful people. All of my communication was promptly returned and all questions answered. We felt very safe at this location and hope to return!

Idyllic New England

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this beautiful house just at the peak of the Fall foliage. We traveled all the way from Ireland with our two young children and I rarely recall leaving a place with such a heavy heart. The house is beautifully situated in leafy, atmospheric Bantam Lake. The town of Bantam is nearby, small but very pleasant. I spent many hours in the cafe there watching life go by. Litchfield is some 4 or 5 miles away and it is classic postcard New England. We went walking in the nearby woods every day and our kids got to take in lungfuls of the purest air. The house was immaculately clean and had everything we needed. The swing chair in the back garden was a particular favourite of mine. Crissie lives next door and was the perfect host. Unimposing yet polite and friendly and even let our kids play in their little playground. We are desperate to come back to this idyllic corner of Connecticut, and next time for much longer. Thank you Crissie sincerely for your wonderful house.

Comfortable home in a good location

  • 5 of 5

We recently traveled to CT for a long weekend and stayed at this lovely home. It was very clean and comfortable. I especially enjoyed rocking on the porch and reading the Sunday paper. We were able to take day trips to New Milford and Litchfield while returning in the evening to our own private home. So much nicer than a hotel! We would definitely recommend staying here.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay. The description is accurate and each time the owners went out of their way for us. Not only was the house clean and well-maintained, they left a bottle of wine to greet us which was really welcome after a long day of travel. Anything that didn't work, no matter how minor, was fixed promptly. Good places to stay are hard to come by in the Litchfield area and we're really glad we found this house.
