Built in 1898 by renowned architect, Ehrick Rossiter, "The Boulders" exudes an elegance and historic charm only found in New England. This stone and shingle home is situated on an expansive, beautifully landscaped property, which is shared with the "Carriage House," a smaller vacation rental home. Whether you're looking to escape the hustle and bustle of New York or the crowds in the Hamptons, "The Boulders" offers everything you need to feel as relaxed as possible!

Inside, you'll find this recently renovated 8-bedroom, 7.5-bathroom residence to be impeccably decorated with tasteful furnishings, gorgeous hardwood floors, and multiple charming fireplaces, making the 13,000-square foot home feel very warm and inviting. From wireless internet access and cable TV to in-unit laundry machines and a gas grill, this home-away-from-home comes with all the essential conveniences. You and your companions will find plenty of space to spread out and relax in privacy, as the spacious layout features multiple living spaces, a library, and media room. After an unforgettable day on the lake, stop by a local market and then refuel with a meal you can prepare in the gourmet country kitchen, fully equipped with marble countertops and stainless steel appliances. Later, sip a nice glass of wine out on the screened porch while you admire the breathtaking fall foliage and lake views.

Perhaps the best feature of this home is its incredible outdoor space! You'll be mere steps from Lake Waramaug, where you can swim, kayak, and fish, or simply relax on 500 feet of stunning waterfront. Plus, you'll have access to a boathouse and 2 docks, providing easy water access. For moments when you'd prefer land-based activities, enjoy hiking along wooded trails that begin directly behind the home, or bike 7-8 miles around the lake. The kids will certainly love playing on the home's large 2-acre yard.


When you're not relishing in the home's amazing amenities, you won't have to venture far to experience the area's best attractions! From here, you'll be only 25 minutes from skiing and a pristine golf course. If you're in the mood for some retail therapy, browse local antique shops before stopping for lunch at one of the area's quaint restaurants. Explore the area further by sightseeing in the nearby towns of New Preston, Washington, Washington Depot, Kent, and Litchfield. In addition, the house is conveniently located within 1 hour of Hartford, 2 hours from New York City, and 2.5 hours from Boston. Whether you're traveling to Connecticut for a special event or simply on a peaceful lakeside getaway with loved ones, this extraordinary Warren vacation rental home leaves nothing to be desired!

Perfect family homecoming and reunion

  • 5 of 5

Dear VRBO,

My extended family and I recently stayed at The Boulders, and I wanted to reach out personally and tell you how FANTASTIC it is.

I grew up in Washington (CT), and the Boulders has always been an iconic place in our lives. One sister worked as a waitress there while in high school/college, my two sisters and I all had our wedding dinners there, and many visiting guests have stayed there over the years. My parents emigrated from Ireland in 1955, directly to Washington, where they married and have lived happily ever since. We gathered for 4 days in early August for our annual family reunion, which was extra special this year as we celebrated my parents’ 60th anniversary. It was at once the perfect homecoming for all of us, and the perfect holiday destination.

Mostly I want to commend and thank the owners for the sensitive and beautiful restoration and renovation of this historic building, which is so close to the heart of so many from the area—certainly all of us. You’ve managed to tastefully upgrade the place in every possible way, and yet its heart and soul and historic beauty are perfectly intact. We loved every detail---the beautiful lake photos all around the house, and the historical ones in the entryway; the magnificent (and fun to work in) kitchen; the comfortable and lovely bedrooms; the crooked floors; the abundant outdoor furniture; the lakefront complete with kayaks and paddleboards---and the boat house, complete with ping pong!

The house beautifully accommodated our family. We felt both privileged to be there and totally protective and proprietary about the house and its surroundings---a place to be treasured and loved even as it is being fully used.

Jeff and Amanda were fantastic---both in advance of and during our stay. You couldn’t have better stewards of the property. They were attentive and easygoing at the same time, eager for us to relax and enjoy and share their obvious love of the place while also being clear about house rules and neighborhood respect.

So---from Weston and Washington, CT, Lancaster, PA, Houston, Scarsdale, NY, Boston, Chicago, and New York City---you have our heartfelt thanks. We'll be back!

Exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5

Just had family reunion at the Boulders for 24. Rented both house & cottage. Such a wonderful home, with so much space and nice accommodations. Lots of toys (bikes, kayaks, ping pong table, etc.) plus great boathouse, dock (bring your ski/pontoon boat--we did) & float. Property managers great, and even met the owners. Former B&B that is truly stylish. Amazing views & sunsets (western view) over Lake Waramaug. We'll be back next year with luck.

The Boulders

  • 5 of 5

FANTASTIC! Scenic, spacious, beautiful and the ideal venue for a family gathering. Our "big" birthday celebration was enjoyed by all ages and will not be forgotten. The amenities including fishing, swimming, boating and kayaking provided endless hours of pleasure for all. The beautifully appointed accommodations made our stay very memorable and we will be booking again next year.

The Boulders Carriage House

We had a great time. The house comfortably accommodated 14 - 6 adults plus kids. And the lake was incredible. We will definitely come back!
