Why Martha Wilkie chose West Cornwall
We loved the cozy house and river view.
What makes this House unique
Nothing makes us happier than sitting on the deck watching and listening to the river.

Relaxing river view cabin
We loved our stay it was very private and relaxing! Just what we were looking for. We will likely book again during warmer months.
Glad you enjoyed the house. Thanks for leaving everything so tidy.
A cabin in the woods brings back childhood memories.
It was going to be a cold and rainy weekend but we were with our great friends and a case of wine, too! The fireplace invited us to its warmth and crackle. The conversation was such fun. There is an artist somewhere in the ownership of this property. Lots of "old stuff" added to the atmosphere and where ever you poked you found a curiosity. TV is there...somewhere. We happily didn't find it.
Dinner on Saturday night was at RSVP just across the covered bridge and was as special as it was the first time there. Highly recommended...read the reviews.
So, for us it was a perfect weekend in the woods and along the riverside. We will be back!
Thank you so much for the lovely and thoughtful review! We're so glad you appreciate our home and our antiques, we love collecting unusual things. RSVP is indeed special. Come again!
Beautiful rustic cabin on the Housatonic
Has all the amenities you could want! Games, sports, nooks and crannies, and access to a beautiful river. Would definitely stay again!
Glad you enjoyed the house and thanks for leaving everything so tidy! Come again.
This was our second time we have stayed at their wonderful house. Our daughter attends college at RPI. We spent the weekend together just relaxing, reading and being together. We have not had many weekends together because we live in Texas and getting to New York is a trek.
The house is wonderful with beautiful antiques and the absolutely best fireplace that we have ever had. We cannot say enough good things about the house, the way everything was described, being away from the hustle of life and just being able to enjoy being together as a family.
We WILL return when we are able!
Thanks for the great review and also thank you for leaving the house so tidy! Come again anytime.
Early Fall Friends Get Together
We rented this cabin to host a yearly get together and it was a great rustic property with a excellent river view and huge deck. Plenty of comfortable sleeping accommodations, the house was clean and all was as advertised. The owners are very responsive as well. The appliances/heat all worked great and the huge living room fireplace is a great plus. The only recommendation I could think of would be the addition of a nice gas grill on that excellent deck. I would definitely recommend this property to others for a relaxing quiet get away.
Lovely cottage, great outdoors space
We had a lovely walk down to the river on Sunday morning. The kids had a blast splashing in the water.
Glad you enjoyed yourselves and thank you for leaving the place spotless!
