Beautiful property in Bethel/Newtown area on a nice spread of property. We live full-time in Brooklyn and were long-term weekend renters in the winter of 2016/2017 (primarily using the house each weekend over about 3 1/2 months).
House is very well appointed, clean and inviting. Nice, light filled spaces and cozy overall atmosphere with multiple living rooms and fireplaces (1 gas and 1 wood burning), easy-to-use basement den area with its own TV, bed, bathroom and door out to the backyard, which is nice for guests with kids/dogs. They did not skimp on the master suite either - extremely comfortable bed, very spacious set-up with walk-in closet, radiant floors in bathroom, high ceilings and great light... we really looked forward to spending our weekends there!
The owner also works with a property manager that was really fantastic - super responsive on any issues, a pleasure to deal with and very kind. She made the stay very convenient and easy and would even pop over to turn the heat on for us a few hours before our arrival most weekends when we were driving up from the city.
Only observation/piece of constructive feedback I have would be to ensure that you (as a renter) have good visibility into who is renting the cottage that also sits on the property. It's rather close to the main house and there is a shared driveway, so can feel a bit "close quarters" if you want the true "out in the country by ourselves" feeling (which may or may not be what your looking for). There was renters in that property ~ 1/3 of the weekends we were there and it would have been nice if it was a bit more secluded / separate feeling. However, by no means a deal-breaker (at all!) - just something to consider.
This estate is a great mix of the old and new. It is large! Plenty of room to spread out, chill out, eat, laugh, play games, play hide and seek, dance, daydream, chat and reconnect with people you love. We were there Jan 6-8.
It is warm and inviting! The new addition, the great room is bright and warm and fun to gather to read, or do puzzles, or just hang out and have a great conversation while looking out at the beautiful landscape or sitting by the fire (although it gets really HOT when the fireplace it on)! There were 9 of us...2 families. 4 adults, 5 teens and a dog, We had plenty of room to spread out and enough room for sleeping. We were originally supposed to be 14 but the snow storm made one family not able to come. 14 would have fit fine too!
The kitchen is by far the BEST stocked kitchen in a home away home I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in dozens! Because of the snow...we had all our meals in and it was a delight to use this gourmet spacious space! We did order Chinese the first night and it was delivered! They have menus for many of the local restaurants!
The dining room was also a hub for meals and a great group game, it will hold many memories for our family. It has great views and perfect for a large party. We used the older living room as a coloring space. It was chillier and perfect to go to when the fireplace room got too hot.
The beds were comfy, the house is very clean, the area is beautiful, the views are what you would expect on a beautiful country estate! It was a great experience.
Working with Janet and Steve and then Debbie at the house was easy! If you are looking for a place to get away from it all, where you can arrive and not feel the need to leave and to create great long lasting memorie then the Shaw estate is the place for you! Being there during a snow storm made it even more magical! We will be back- hopefully next time with all of our family members!
We celebrated my wife's birthday here with the several family members and this property was perfect. Very spacious and comfortable. The grand kids had plenty of room to play without getting under foot. My son and son-in-law love to cook, and they were impressed with the well-appointed kitchen. Overall an A+. Looking forward to another visit.
This was our second New Year's weekend here and won't be the last. The place exceeds its description in comfort and luxury. House is clean, well appointed, and it is so relaxing to hang out in front of the fireplace or sprawled on the couch that we only left the house for a few touch football games in the huge yard. Kitchen fully stocked with cook and serving ware and plenty of space to store your groceries. House manager and house owner were very responsive to any questions we had. Highly recommended, especially for large groups. Thank you for sharing your property, Janet! Much appreciated.
We rented this beautiful home for my mother's 90th birthday and LOVED it! Plenty of room for our family of 12 to eat, sleep, and just hang out. We were lucky to have ideal weather so when our extended family joined us for the day we could enjoy the stone patio and beautiful yard. The fire pit and gas fireplace took the chill off at night. The kitchen was beautifully appointed and a dream to cook in. We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our long weekend in this perfectly beautiful home! A New England paradise! The party was catered by Bountiful Board and we HIGHLY recommend them too! I wouldn't be surprised if we book a return visit!
I was very impressed with the size of the house and attention to detail. Everything was included and it was stocked with all the essential equipment in the kitchen. A home away from home. The furniture was beautiful and we loved the nicknacks and decorations throughout the house! It was elegant and very homey. The beds were very comfortable and loved the antique furniture! The toilet that was shared by the three bedrooms was not easy to flush. The handle had to be held down for the entire time for a complete flush. There was also a problem in the basement bathroom. It kept running unless you jiggled the handle.
I don't think it is appropriate to make the renters take off all the sheets on the beds and place them in front of the washer and dryer. I also did not appreciate Debbie asking me to water all the plants in the living room before she left. I am not the maid.
Aside from these few things, I would rent this house in the future and recommend it to my friends. You have a great house Janet!!
