About Jane & Peter Franchetti

My husband, myself, our children, grandchildren and extended family all enjoy spending time together at Stonecroft. Our property has a unique way of bringing us all together whether near or far. It is our pleasure to share this property with you and your family.

Jane & Peter Franchetti purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Jane & Peter Franchetti chose Wilton

As a former Bed & Breakfast, from about the 1940's-1970's, Stonecroft was well regarded by everyone who stayed here. For years before purchasing Stonecroft my family would kayak by the property and remark about its beauty and unique qualities. It was only a dream then, but now we are the fortunate owners of this remarkable piece of paradise and we feel grateful to extend a warm welcome to others so that they can come and enjoy Stonecroft just as much as we all have.

What makes this cottage unique

Stonecroft is very private and secluded property yet it is with in walking distance to Main Street. Wilton is a very quaint and friendly town which features a library, post office, grocery store, and other local businesses.

Perfect retreat!

Pictures don't do it justice; this place is a perfect retreat on the lake; well-equipped and very clean. And Jane and Peter are the perfect hosts. Easy walk into town with a great restaurant.

Fantastic family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This cottage had all the amenities of home in a quiet and secluded location but only a mile from town. The town of Wilton is small but has everything you would need to just get away from the hustle and bustle of life. If you don't have what you want in Wilton there is another larger town about 15 minutes way. The property is gorgeous with many things to do. The lake is quiet and beautiful. If you are into hiking, this cottage is within a 30 min drive of a state park with great hiking and views. Jane and Peter were fantastic hosts throughout our stay giving us free use of the entire property. Within 24 hours of arrival at Stonecroft all 5 people in our party stated they would return to this cottage, this includes the teenagers who can be tough to please. We will definitely be back!

We had the most wonderful time at Stonecroft. The property had everything we needed to relax and explore the outdoors with our two kids. So much nature to take in, and the lake was beautiful. The house was cozy and accommodating. Thank you! We will certainly be back!

Fabulous view and very cozy

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is that my family of 5 had a blast for the 5 days we were there. Jane and Peter are such gracious hosts, and they made sure our family was well-taken care of. They had kayaks, paddle boat and even a row boat that my husband enjoyed fishing in. The sun porch was beautiful-especially if it was raining my girls would hang out there and listen to the music. We loved the fire pit that they had-wood and kindling was provided too. My 3 year old daughter and I even napped in the hammock. Thanks so much Jane and Peter! We feel as we have met some new friends for life.
