Why Dean chose Middle Haddam
This property I purchased for a house flip. A few weeks into this project I fell in love with it and knew I couldn't sell it. So I spent the next 8 months ripping apart the entire house, redesigning the layout, moving walls, replacing all plumbing & electrical adding state of the art AC & Heating systems. I put this house together the way I wanted, using only the best materials. I personally designed & installed all the tile, marble, kitchen cabinets, windows/doors, outside deck, everything down to picking the paint colors. The house came out fantastic and it is here for you to enjoy. 8 out of 10 people said the pictures don't do it justice.
What makes this House unique
Unique benefits this home has to offer... 1) A heliport. Fly in if you wish or have a helicopter come take you for a ride. 2) Privacy. No neighbors, not even across the river. Complete solitude & only a 5 minute ride to shopping, gas & restaurants. 3) Unbelievable panoramic views. You can sit on the deck and watch the sun set directly over the other side of the river. After that gather around the fire pit on the deck. 4) The beach. Take a walk down the staircase to the river. Here I have a rowboat, canoe, 7' float island, fire pit, picnic table, chairs, propane grill for you to use. 5) You can bring your own boat to use on the river during your stay. Enjoy!

This home is incredible!! The view is gorgeous, the big porch is relaxing and had a lovely, gas fire pit. The home was comfortable and in perfect condition when we got there. The kitchen had everything you need and a convenient island. We also enjoyed dipping our feet in the water and taking in the view. Great sunsets. There is also plenty to do in the area for dinner, breweries, wineries, etc. We enjoyed Arrigoni Winery down the road during our stay with live music.
Dean was an excellent host. He greeted us and made sure we had everything we needed. Thank you, Dean, for sharing your beautiful home!
Great deck in Connecticut
Perfect setting for a graduation celebration. Deck is perfect. Kitchen worked very well to set a party. Terrific sound-system.
Wish I had more time to just relax at this location.
Such a beautiful place memories for a lifetime I can’t say anything more but you need to experience yourself
This house is absolutely stunning! From the minute we walked in the door and saw the open floor plan, we were in love. The deck is spectacular, and we were able to watch a beautiful sunset over the Connecticut River. The master bedroom is fabulous because it was almost as though it was a private area for me and my husband. The bedrooms downstairs were perfect for the kids, too! They had so much fun playing and watching movies on the day it was rainy, but most of all, they couldn't get enough of being down at the river when the weather was sunny and (relatively) warm. At night, they were so excited to sleep in the bunk beds. It worked out so perfectly that they had their own bathroom, too! Thank you so much, Dean, for being an incredible host and wealth of information about the area. We will be back!
Beautiful home with an Amazing view!
Highly recommend this property. The home is absolutely beautiful and the views are incredible. Very spacious with more than enough room for any activity. Really is an impressive home. Will be staying here again!
Beautiful house and location!
We absolutely loved our 3rd stay at this riverfront home!
First, it's very remote, you don't have to worry about your neighbors at this location. The view is amazing. Really amazing. There's access to the river and a private beach down a long set of stairs (it's picturesque). The deck off the back is fantastic, spacious, and beautifully done. Perfect for relaxing or entertaining. We honestly never feel a need to leave the house when staying here.
The house itself is very nice, updated, and tastefully modern, yet still a little rustic as a house of this type should be. There's plenty of room for several couples or even families. The lower lever has multiple rooms, all well appointed and clean. The main floor is more for entertaining and/or relaxing. Upstairs there's a beautiful master bedroom. The bathrooms and kitchen have always been clean when we've stayed there. Speaking of the kitchen, it too is extremely nice and has everything you'd need. It's large and modern, plus right off the gorgeous deck. Everything overlooks the river and countryside.
The house in general is well appointed. Basically bring the cloths, beverages, and the food you think you'll need for the week, and there's little reason to leave this beautiful location!
I should also note the rare time or two I had a question or minor issue, Dean (the owner) was extremely responsive and available at all times. He also has no issue with us bringing our own boat or even having a friend bring his helicopter and leaving it there for the week! I can't say I've had many homeowners this accommodating in the past when renting houses!
Overall I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with staying here! The pictures are all accurate, as is the owner's description. It's a five star location, house, and value at that. We are already looking forward to our next stay here!
