Vacationing in an Art Museum
Upon arriving at the house in Woodbury my family was struck by all the amazing artwork both on the walls and in sculpture form. The owner came over and gave us a wonderful tour, and shared some of his work with us. The house was beautiful and had large rooms and excellent lighting. The beds in each room should be mentioned, they were wonderful. Between the pillows, sheets and great mattresses, sleeping was a dream. Each morning we had coffee and enjoyed watching birds and other wildlife in the flower garden. The weather was nice and we also spent time on both outdoor porches daily. The kitchen boasted a skylight and a chef's stove, that was big enough to prepare family meals. We also enjoyed using the grill outside near the garden most evenings. The grounds were as beautiful as the house itself, and our family had a great vacation.
Great summer rental
My family and I stayed at this property for a week in July for a family reunion. We were there during a heat wave and the air conditioning worked great! Overall the house was very clean and the pictures were accurate. Upgraded kitchen and bathrooms were very nice. The garden in the back is beautiful and we enjoyed drinking our morning coffee and watching the animals coming to the bird feeders. There are some good restaurants about a mile up the road and a large grocery store 3 miles away for essentials. I would definitely recommend the property to other travelers.
Comfortable and relaxing home
Our family of four (grandma, mom, and two children under 10) stayed at Douglas's home for a week in June 2019. We had a wonderful experience. When we arrived after a long drive Douglas greeted us warmly and graciously showed us around. His home is comfortable, relaxing, and inviting. There are many comfortable places to sit and the beds and linens were high quality. The Roman shades in the bedroom did a good job of blocking both light and sound from the road, and the artwork throughout the home adds a special touch and was a pleasure to view during our stay.
We especially enjoyed spending time on the three-season porch and outside in the lovely yard and gardens. It was so peaceful sitting at the kitchen island eating breakfast and watching the birds and other wildlife in the back garden. The artwork extends to the outdoor space, and while it takes up a good portion of the side yard, there was still plenty of the space for the kids to run and play.
The location of the home was ideal as it provided easy access to surrounding areas including Woodbury, Middlebury, Southbury, and Watertown. A sidewalk that extends for 2.5 miles through downtown Woodbury is just a short walk from the home, as are a number of restaurants and shops. We found the pricing of the home to be more than fair given its condition, amenities, and location.
To top it off, Douglas was kind enough to offer our family an Ikebana floral designing session as a special gift toward the end of our stay. We all greatly enjoyed learning about this relaxing and intriguing art form and getting a chance to experiment with it ourselves.
We are grateful to Douglas for his hospitality and highly recommend this property! Thank you Douglas!
A couple of friends and I stayed 2 short days at Douglas' place for IMConnecticut 70.3. We would have loved to stay in this beautiful house longer. It made the weekend relaxing. From the beautiful garden in the back to the amazing outdoor porch. Douglas had the place spotless and was very attentive if there were any questions. We highly recommend his place.
We loved our stay in this peaceful Woodbury home during our home renovations. Beautiful home and grounds. All the amenities of home with added features. Large comfortable rooms. Great location to downtown.
