traveler reviews for this litchfield house rental

Great place!

Review submitted: September 6, 2013   Date of arrival: June 1, 2013

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

Review submitted: June 24, 2013   Date of arrival: June 21, 2013

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.
