It remains a great place to entertain guests or to be by yourself to enjoy the solitude of the surrounding countryside. There is a Master Bedroom suite in the upstairs or the original portion of the house consisting of the Master bedroom with its own fireplace, a bathroom, an office/den, a dressing room and a walk through closet. The living space consists of a formal living room with a fireplace, a TV area with its own fireplace, a dining room with beautiful wood panelled walls and wide plank flooring and a fireplace, and a kitchen with an eat in dining area.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a newer bedroom wing consisting of a master bedroom and bath, and two smaller single bedroom, each with private bath. There is also a powder room off the main entrance hallway. The house has two decks, one on the eastern portion of the house overlooking a private pond, and a more secluded and larger deck on the western side of the house that features gorgeous sunset views over a hayfield ridge. Smith Tavern is approximately 2900 square feet.
We held a cousin's reunion at Smith tavern, six women who grew up together spent the weekend. This house was cozy, clean, comfortable and a perfect place to gather and visit. We sat on all three decks, played board games in the dining room, and had long, late night visits in the lovely parlor. Each bedroom, even those not pictured were clean, pretty and very comfortable. The kitchen was more than sufficient. Working with John through the rental was a pleasure and his son, Dan, who greeted us, was very gracious. If I am ever in the lovely Litchfield area again this is where I would stay.
We enjoyed our three night stay in July very much. We had two families with teenage children, 9 total. The house is larger than it may appear and is a true former tavern but nicely decorated and equipped. This is a beautiful part of Connecticut with rolling hills and the house has a nice open view of pastures and sunsets. We would like to go back again.
Wide plank floors and comfortable furnishings in a beautiful setting make Smith Tavern a perfect retreat vacation location .
The large living room, kitchen and deck with grill are nicely appointed and encourage socializing. The bedrooms comfortable and cozy.
John, the owner, who sells high quality grass fed beef from his windmill down the road on Sundays, lives next door and was friendly and attentive to our needs.
We were renting Skybarn and Smith Tavern from John for our 42nd college reunion so meals and socializing took place at Skybarn with Smith Tavern used primarily as sleeping quarters.
Those staying at Smith Tavern gathered on the deck with coffee each morning to enjoy the beauty and peaceful calm of the Litchfield hills, with the added charm of cattle in a nearby field. Blessed with perfect warm days and cool nights, we really enjoyed our stay at Smith Tavern.
Six adults and 2 small children stayed in the house, all guests for our daughter's wedding weekend in Litchfield. Our guests told us that the rental was spacious with lovely views. They could not have been happier. The listing was accurate regarding details. The house was clean and well-maintained. The owner was very solicitous. And we would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative.
Clean plenty of different spaces to hang gorgeous view cool place
John's property was beyond our expectations. There is a lot more to this place than from the picts. The land is beautiful and the house is spacious, clean, charming. We were a group of 8 and all fit comfortably. The kitchen was great for cooking and we spent the whole morning in the breakfast nook surrounded by the rising sun. Really pretty. The house is a great value and we look forward to visiting in the future.
