About the Owner

This house was originally built in the 1950's by my father for my grandmother. My grandmother chose this site because of the lovely woods, nearby streams and a 150 year old white oak tree that now stands guard in the garden. I later expanded the house and added an upstairs for my children and myself when I used the house for weekends in the 1990's.

Litchfield Country House

  • of 5
Had a wonderful time in Litchfield. The house is spacious and very charming. Property Manager was attentive and considerate withou intruding. We had a relaxing holiday. There is some shopping in downtown Litchfield and a convenient grocery store nearby. Good restaurants in the area and antiquing in Litchfield and nearby New Preston. Would highly recommend this property and will likely come again.

My friends and I had a great weekend at this property. It is very spacious, the pool is awesome- nice and warm for early September and the property manager is very helpful. It was great having 4 full bathrooms & a big yard for lots of yard games. I am definitely going to come back next year! Thanks for a great birthday weekend!

We had a wonderful 4th of July stay! The property manager was very nice and accommodating! The house was nice and clean. The pool was awesome the whole property was beautiful! I only wished there was AC in the ground floor of the house, as well. It got a litte hot mid day but the pool was a great way to cool off;)
We will definitely come back!!
Thanks!

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing week end in this 5 star house. The bedrooms are all spacious and well furnished. The kitchen is very well equipped which is important to us - we are French and love to cook. The house and property is very nice and well maintained. This house is one of the most beautiful we have rented in CT.

Amenities

From the Owner

The property is very peaceful. No cars or sirens can be heard. Birds abound in the woods and across the dirt road that passes by the house are duckponds filled with a variety of rare species. When the wind blows just so. you can sometimes hear a Trumpeter Swan call.........
