Just one hour from New York City, this is a very charming and stylishly updated old house that is perfect for families. It is located in the country area of North Stamford, right on the border of Greenwich. It was built in 1869 (there is a hitching post out front), and then was updated twice recently with a sunroom with woodburning stove, large playroom stocked with toys, and a master suite and bath. It has 3,880 square feet. There are 4 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 2 with tubs. The house can comfortably fit 8 people, and 8 is the maximum number of guests we allow. Please let us know how many people will be staying in the house when you book -- we ask that you not bring additional people unless you have discussed it with us. Thank you.
CHECK IN TIME: 3 PM
CHECK OUT TIME: 11 AM
There is a large backyard. At the far end of the yard is a pond and stone patio. In the spring and summer there are frogs in the pond, and the occasional turtle.
The playroom is large, sunny, and stocked with toys that kids are welcome to play with.
Our outdoor swingset / playset accommodates small children - best for children 10 and under. Please no adult use. Thanks.
We always leave a binder in the house that is full of detailed info about the house, wireless access, garbage pickup, the area, shopping, activities, restaurants, recreation, etc. We are very easy to contact via text or phone with any questions at all you have during your stay -- no matter how small. Thanks!
The neighborhood is bucolic and rural. There's a horse farm nearby, down a winding road. The forested Mianus River Park, with its lovely hiking trails that run alongside the river, is a 3-minute drive from the house, great for jogging, hiking, mountain-biking or walking the dogs (or kids!). The house has easy access to the Merritt parkway (Route 15) so getting into NYC or to nearby Greenwich, CT is easy. Shopping on trendy Greenwich Ave. (Saks, Tiffany, J. Crew, etc.) is 15-20 minutes away. Stamford train station is about 15-20 minutes from the house, and has many trains running into New York's Grand Central station, a 1-hour train ride away.
Please do NOT put anything other than toilet paper in toilets - no feminine products or baby wipes, etc. or there may be plumbing problems. Thank you.
Check in time: 11 am. Check out time: 3 pm. We may be able to accommodate earlier check ins and later check outs -- just ask.
Please note that beyond 4 people, we charge an additional fee of $5 per guest, per night.

Deirdre purchased this house in 2014
We bought this house because I grew up in the area and my family is close by.
We love the character of this home. It has old roots but has been updated beautifully. We also love the huge backyard, tire swing and pond in the backyard. The large and sunny playroom is a huge benefit for us with kids.
This home was not only immaculate, well-kept , and loved in every way but was more than your average home away from home. The pictures did not do it justice. It was much better in person ..a rarity these days. We were a large group on a long overdue reunion but there was everything available to accommodate all of her needs... from a great kitchen...dinnerware ..serving pieces cooking utensils ...to comfortable sleeping arrangements with beautiful linens and lots of room!!! everyone was sad to leave but if still available plan to make it a reunion destination as often as we can. The informative instruction book was our Bible and told us everything we needed to know about the property and the surrounding areas.
Perfect place for a big family gathering. Plenty of parking, big rooms, a piano, fully-equipped playroom, large yard, and a beautiful setting. Deirdre was especially responsive to our needs, and even introduced us to her lovely neighbor who provided firewood for a chilly night. This place tops our list for NYC lodging options
Came to Greenwich for our son's wedding and looked for a large property to house the extended family which included our two year old grandson. Found Deidre's property and it fit the bill perfectly. Large house with 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, a fantastic play room for small children (which our grandson loved so much we couldn't get him out of it), updated and fully furnished kitchen and large living area with table seating for 8. Great backyard with swing set and tire swing and outdoor table. Ample parking as well.
The property is well situated and close to major expressways, an hour away from NYC, and in close proximity to major shopping areas.
Most importantly, Deidre was a pleasure to deal with, very responsive and helped make our stay most pleasurable. If you are looking for a larger property in this area, you won't go wrong renting here and I would highly recommend it.
My family and I stayed at the property the 3rd week in august and had an absolute great time. The group was comprised of 3 adults and 4 children and the house catered to everyone's interests. My daughter (5yo) was enthralled by the well appointed playroom. The adults and older kids loved the outdoors area; nice reprieve after day trips. Additionally, the house is conveniently located and we were able to enjoy attractions in Stamford, Greenwich, Rye, and NYC.
Deirdre was an excellent host and provided details on various local establishments and activities for all age groups. She checked up on us as our arrival date approached and throughout our stay to ensure everything was running smoothly.
I'd recommend this house to any family and/or group and I would love to stay there again next year.
Great house tucked away with room for everyone. Owners take meticulous care and it shows.
My family stayed for one week in May for family wedding. The house is amazing, lots of room for our party of 10. Everything was made easy for us with detailed instructions for the house and the area. Would highly recommend this property. Fantastic!
Lovely old New England home located a very large piece of property with its own pond , swings &seesaw for the kids. There is a very generous children' from that is light and airy and fully equipped with games and toys.. My Grandkids loved it! There are many sitting rooms/areas for the family to spread out and enjoy themselves and also have quite spots. Kitchen was fully equipped and many areas to sit down for a full family meal or a morning cup of coffee. It is easily reached off the Merritt Pkway and is located easily to stores and restaurants.
Ill definitely rent it again!
