Just a stone’s throw from New York City, Fairfield County combines the cultural richness of Manhattan with the beautiful country side of New England. Thirty miles of coastline stretch across the county’s southern border, providing idyllic scenes of coastline and beaches. Metro-North Railroad provides easy access to the energy and pace of Manhattan without the expense of Big Apple accommodations.
Walk just 10 minutes from Annie’s 1913 New Canaan Guesthouse to downtown New Canaan’s historic upscale shopping district and the train station where you can easily catch a train to New York City or visit Philip Johnson’s famous Glass House or eat at one of New Canaan’s world-class restaurants. Sit and read with a cup of tea on the Main Street facing porch or visit one of New Canaan’s many parks for a walk in the woods, a game of tennis or to fish and feed the ducks. Or, sit on the stone patio on the back and have breakfast while the kids play in the log cabin playhouse.
