About Patty

My husband Chuck and I bought this house as a retirement home. We have 5 grown children and 10 grandchildren. The house is perfect for the 2 of us but expands to serve our large family when they come in from out of town. The finished basement room serves as another bedroom and sometimes, with air mattresses, is a dormitory/playroom for the kids.

Patty purchased this house in 2006

Why Patty chose Central Connecticut

Our home is unique, even for this planned unit development, because it's the largest ranch in the neighborhood. With the cathedral ceilings and paladian windows, it seems even larger.

The location is perfect for anywhere you might want to go. Our family commuted here from NYC while our grandson was undergoing cancer treatments a few years ago. The house was a haven for them.

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with the light that fills this house from mornings in the eat in kitchen or out on the deck to afternoons in the living room as the sun sets. I love the convenience of being minutes away from drugstores, food stores \, restaurants and entertainment. There are many quaint little villages close by as well. Water features include the CT River and Long Island Sound. Our community has a 5 mile bike path safe and convenient for walking, jogging or biking.

Beautiful house with will kept yard, guite place to relax with an amazing deck.

  • 4 of 5

I only gave it a 4 star because there was a few things that didn't work apond arivel and there was no blender in the kitchen. Our stay in this house was wonderful, pieceful and would definitely stay again if we ever return. The owners are very nice and helpful, you can have total trust with them on making sure your stay is perfect. They leave out a folder on the counter with info of places to eat, shop and see. The beds were comfortable, the neighbors were friendly and the house is on a no outlet street, so there is no noise of traffic. After staying here, I will never stay in a hotel again, on more then a couple of nights. Many thanks to the owners , for our wonderful stay in your cozy home. Sincerely Brenda, Brad, Rita.

Hartford Gem

  • 5 of 5

This house was in perfect proximity to downtown Hartford (20 minutes) and was incredibly appointed. The kitchen was so well stocked, you'll think you are at home. The layout is inviting and we spent our time in the kitchen and tv area, with a roaring fire. Added extras included a welcome basket and reading material. Patty wrote a book! If we ever head back to the Hartford area, this is our spot! Thanks for making our time super comfortable.

An outstanding experience at Patty's Middletown home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family converged at Patty's house from California, Florida, and Pennsylvania for a holiday celebration with our extended CT family. Party's house was perfect for us. It is large, bright and very comfortable. A perfect floor plan to allow both common socializing space and private living space. Everything we needed was right on hand. The location was great: close to the highway and several family friendly attractions (Dinosaur State Park, Kid City Museum, Elm Ridge Park, to name a few). Patty is an outstanding host. Her responses to inquiries were prompt and clearly communicated. I highly recommend Patty and her home to the reader.

166 Rolling Green Review

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently spent 19 days at Patty's home in Middletown,Ct. It was our third stay at the house and, as were the other visits, super.

The house is centrally located and minutes from major highways. The neighbors are very friendly and helpful and the house fit our needs perfectly.

A great place to stay when in the Hartford area!! Paul & Nancy Cunningham

The Best Compliment - We returned for a second extended stay.

  • 5 of 5

Patty and Chuck's home is ideal for us. It is close to family and friends and has all the amenities and is especially cozy. It is close to shops, good restaurants in Middletown, easy access to the Connecticut coastline, Hartford and the New England countryside. And as the ultimate compliment, as consummate international travelers for the past 3 years, we returned!

A lovely home in a quiet, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We are long term travelers and decided to spend the month of October 2015 in CT. to visit with family and friends. We believe we were the first renters of this property and Patty and Chuck did a superb job of preparing their home for us. They were gracious hosts, even to the extent of having cups of tea ready for us when we arrived. Their instructions were clear and concise such that we did not have to disturb them during our stay. Patty and Chuck's home was 'as advertised' in all ways. It is located in a quiet corner of a quiet neighborhood conveniently close to the interstate system (but not so close that you get road noise.). The community is a great place to go for walk/runs, including a walking path not far from the house. The house itself was clean, the back garden delightful, the kitchen very well stocked, and Patty and Chuck themselves were respectful and accommodating. We would definitely recommend this house to friends and relatives. Patty and Chuck, we hope to stay with you again in 2016!
