About the property

4 bedroom 2 bath Upper Level of a Ranch that sits on a hill in rural Canton. Enjoy sauna for one or two, Jetted bath, fireplace/woodstove, deck, lots of light. You can rent 1000 Sqft on lower floor as well, for an extra fee.

Five minutes from historic Collinsville, 8 mins Ski Sundown. Small cute beach 10 mins. $8 per carload. Beautiful surrounding towns and foliage. Thirty minutes to the lovely City of Hartford.

House is on Rte 179 set up on a hill. There is ample parking on driveway.

The house has a spacious open floor plan; large dining room overlooking mountain and deck. There is a 32 inch TV upstairs and WiFi, and Full kitchen awaiting the chef. You are welcome to use any of the foods that are in the fridge and cupboards.

If you choose to rent the downstairs at the same time, which means you will have the full house to yourself and your group, there is also a Smart 46 inch TV downstairs with wifi and karaoke, and a nice sound system. Please tell us if you intend to use the sound system and karaoke so we can have it all set up for you, and also detailed instructions regarding same.

We use the house when we do not have guests, so all the foods in fridge and cabinets will be fresh. There are also a few different types of coffees.

There is a Dishwasher in kitchen and a Washer/Dryer are in its own separate area on the 1st floor.

There is a 1927 Gulbransen piano for your use and enjoyment. Please be gentle on it is quite old. The last time it was tuned was 3 years ago, but still sounds decent for a vintage piece.

Please do not let children climb on top of piano.

There are books for adults and children.

Master bedroom has a king Sized 2 year old bed. Second bedroom has a queen newer memory foam matttress. In the third bedroom there are two twin beds with new designer mattresses. The fourth bedroom has two cribs. If you do not have children staying I keep that room locked for storage. Otherwise, I will keep the two cribs in there. If you do not wish to use the two cribs but need the room because you have a large group, please let us know so that we may make that room available to you without the cribs.

Since we currently use that room for our grandchildren who are still in cribs, there is no bed in that room. That does not mean that if planned ahead of time we couldn't make it more amenable to your needs. We just need to plan it.

In the washer/dryer area there is, detergent, fabric softener, toiletries. We also provide towels & linen.

There is currently a wood stove, but are in the process of putting that space back to a fireplace. Do not know when that will be so always ask if you are expecting it.

There is a nice Deck that faces the woods and has a brand new grill.

We have air-conditioning units, but we do not use the air-conditioning units or the wood stove in the Spring. It tends to be breezy and cool up here.

As mentioned before, the upstairs is very private. You have entrance through the front door and entrance through the back where deck is. When you are here you will have full use of the deck and microwave. Please be sure to clean as best as you can the grill after using it.

We also mentioned that we live downstairs but we are not always here. There are 4 of us. We have a full downstairs with bathroom, kitchen, and seperate entry, where we stay when the upstairs is rented.

TO REITERATE: You MAY rent the entire house (upstairs and downstairs for a total square footage of 2,900) for a large family gathering or a party, retreat or office conference, or any type of reunion, i.e. graduation, wedding, etc..

PLEASE INQUIRE ABOUT THIS, AND LET US KNOW THE DETAILS before booking so that we may know how to prepare for you. Obviously for special situations, the fees will be a little more but we will also give a lot more.

PLEASE NOTE; IF THE downstairs is not rented during your stay, (unless we are away) we will be staying there.

If you would like to rent the entire house for a get away, or a vacation, the entire fee per day up to 10 people (actually sleeping here)is $465 per day. That includes $125 cleaning fee for upstairs and $50 cleaning fee for downstairs. If there are additional people (up to 10) just here for the party or visiting, there will be NO EXTRA FEE.

We will always be available either in person or by phone if you should need us. If we are out of town, we will have a person who will tend to your needs in the event you need something.

We can be as visible as you would like us to be.

If we ARE here, we tend to like being out and about; but that isn't always possible.

We will meet you on the day you arrive, hand you the keys, show you around, and then off we go.

If you should need anything, you can either leave a note, or give us a jingle.

Our house is your house; with a few exceptions:

We are a smoke-free, pet-free household, therefore we allow NO PETS, or SMOKING, or under-age drinking.

Always close doors when entering or exiting the home. Since this is a rural area, we do not want any little critters walking in.

Other things to note:

Depending on the week or day, the fridge may be stocked with a variety of eatables.

There are amazingly comfy beds, linens, blankets and pillows, and towels. The kitchen is also stocked with plates, cups, glasses and silverware for sharing meals -- there's a coffee-maker, a microwave to warm food, a fridge and a stove with oven.

We have concluded from the guests who have stayed here, that they either eat out or bring their own foods of choice, so feel free to enjoy what is there if you like, or if not;

There are many nice restaurants for dining out, or getting take-out from nearby gourmet markets and farm stands.

PLEASE NOTE: This house is most comfortable for 6 people if you are all using individual beds. If you are couples the upstairs can accommodate 4-6 adults (which includes the two single beds), or 2 children, which equals 8 guests.

Any guest over 8 people is an additional fee of $10 per night.

ALSO NOTE: There are two cribs in one of the bedrooms. If you are having children that sleep in cribs (if it's over 8 people), there is an additional fee of $10 per night for both children who use cribs.

Please be mindful of noise. No parties unless advised ahead of time.

About Mary Hammer

We purchased our lovely home in 2006. We are a retired couple raising our four grandchildren.

Why Mary Hammer chose Canton

We purchased our lovely home in 2006. We were attracted to the lovely rustic atmosphere, and the proximity of the best day and night skiing and snowboarding in Connecticut (Ski Sundown). (4 miles). Also the Farmington River is one mile away, with fantastic fishing and kyaking available. Collinsville Canoe & Kayak (1.5 miles away) is the largest specialty canoe and kayak store in New England. There are nearby bike and hiking trails, and Collinsville with antiques and quaint restaurants is two miles away. Collinsville, which is part of Canton, was ranked in Budget Travel magazine as one of the "Ten Coolest Small Towns In America" . There is an open-air shopping center (3 miles away) called "The Shoppes at Farmington Valley" which opened in 2004. The shopping center has 50 stores and restaurants, including Barnes & Noble, Dick's Sporting Goods, Kohl's, ShopRite, Old Navy, Talbots, and Panera Bread.
