Lovely Weekend Escape
My husband and I so enjoyed our weekend in this beautiful home. The house is very private and set back a nice distance from the road. All the windows flooded the rooms with light and fall air. The house is spacious and beautifully decorated--a perfect place to celebrate our anniversary! This was our first experience with a private rental (necessitated by a mistaken double-booking at a local inn that, thankfully, was discovered two weeks before our visit). The owner was very gracious and welcoming in our correspondance, the house was so much better than a room at an inn, the convenience of the well-appointed kitchen was a delight, and the discovery of a great selection of DVDs a bonus! (We chose Shakespeare in Love, of course.) Though our trip was just for two, the house would easily accomodate a larger family with two twin beds in the second upstairs bedroom. Also, as the third bedroom with a queen bed is located downstairs and attaches to the second bathroom, it's equally ideal for grandparents to come along, or for two couples to travel together. For active families, a small soccer field (with goal nets) runs on the side of the wooded property. The quality of area restaurants was another pleasant surprise. I'd highly recommend Giulia's and Pastorale (where we enjoyed our French dinner on a romanticlly-lit, grape-vine-sheltered porch). We had never visited this area of Connecticut before and were charmed on our bike ride past beautiful old farm houses and quaint towns.
