About Stephen Brighenti
My career is restoring and operating luxury boutique design hotels in NYC and Connecticut. After relocating to Washington, one of Connecticut's most beautiful rural towns, I began restoring luxurious homes in wonderful locations for extended stay rental. I have since purchased and restored 16 homes in the area and furnished them like luxury hotels - all with Frette cotton sheets and bathrobes, down comforters and pillows, marble baths,flat screen tvs, antiques and more. Maid ($25/hour), drycleaning and catering service is available. When you visit one of my homes you will be experiencing the highest level of quality at reasonable rates!

Great House great property!
Awesome house on a great piece of property! Highly recommend. The owner was very attentive to all our questions and needs. Very professional.
The owner was very friendly and accessible; however, the home lost heat 4x and we need to reset the furnace as well as the home lost water service 2x needing the owner and us to reset the water service. In addition, the wifi didn't work needing to be reset. The electronics, TV's are small and outdated as is the sound system. Overall it's a cool house in a great location and on a nice property but updates are needed as the house no longer matches the photos, etc.
Hi Rocco - I am very sorry about the heat re-set button - I am replacing the furnace in the next few weeks - it just started happening prior to your stay and the service tech suggested this as the best solution after your departure. No guest will have to hit the re-set button again and they will enjoy a new furnace. The wifi does work fine - just our cable service interruption requires the reset button occasionally if we have winter outages. I sincerely try to have problem free stays and respond promptly when there and fully after departure if a bigger need is recommended and the furnace will be new this month. Thank you for staying and putting up with this inconvenience. Stephen
Roxbury and Washington are exceptional for their excellent restaurants, spas, antique shops, art galleries, boutiques, farms, historic homes, gardens, vineyards, distilleries, and orchards. The Gilmore Girls creator modeled Stars Hollow, the perfect Connecticut town, after Washington and the Independence Inn after the Mayflower Inn. It is the current or former home to many artists, writers, actors and Wall Street executives – referred to as "more Vermont, than Vermont" and "the un-Hamptons". Nature preserves, Lake Waramaug, and the Shepaug River offer extensive hiking, biking, and water activities. Mohawk and Sundown Ski Areas , Lime Rock Raceway, and Quassy Amusement Park are all a short drive. Minutes from Mayflower Inn & Spa and Winvian Inn & Spa, Lake Waramaug swimming, Mohawk and Sundown Mountains skiing, antiquing, historic homes, hiking (including Steep Rock Land Preserve abutting house), cross country skiing. Please see my web site washingtonct.com for links to most of the areas restaurants, recreation, activities and all of my homes.
