About Janet Shaw
We are a large family who love getting together as much a possible. We enjoy the outdoors, travel, cooking, working and relaxing. We spent many years restoring this home, adding a huge addition, and are continually landscaping and keeping this home in pristine condition.
Janet Shaw purchased this House in 1994
Why Janet Shaw chose Newtown
We fell is love with the quiet, 150 year old tree lined road, center hall large antique home on this beautiful mature property. This home has wonderful wood floors, some are 9 inches wide, lots of windows, great light, big rooms...so we fell is love with this home, got married under the pear tree and raised the kids. A full restoration was now underway, with the keeping of what we fell in love with, but needing the amenities and additional 3200 square feet, adding a master suite & bath, kitchen, media room, other bathrooms, etc.We installed patios and outside eating areas for family gatherings...had wonderful times and still do. Now able to share this beautiful home with others. As far as location...it's great, town is minutes away, and offers everything one needs. Still close to NYC. 18 miles from the Ocean, 9 miles to I84 & I95, 12 minutes to Merrit PKY. oh, another thing..aside from a horse area, with a riding stable two doors away, and we have "The Big Sky" for star gazing, wonderful all year. When it comes to winter, we are a wonderland. The fire pit outside is wonderful then as well. Truly a special place to be.

Looking forward to our weekend in Connecticut with extended family celebrations, we were thrilled to find a place to house our family including teens and toddlers. We came from Florida and Pennsylvania and welcomed rare family time together. The kids had room to play, the students found quiet places to study, and adults were able to get some ‘work’ done on-line.
The spacious rooms were decorated to welcome travelers and help us all feel comfortable. The expansive property was not only beautiful to look at, but gave the children a great space to run around and ride their little bikes.
The amount of time we actually spent at the Estate was limited, as we had so many functions to attend. But, we all agreed that we would love to come back and enjoy a more relaxed vacation right there!
The location is perfect to visit with relatives who live in nearby Easton!
Thank you for offering such a home for our use. We loved every minute we were there!💕�
Stay here! This property is well maintained and stocked to the brim with everything you'll need for a fabulous and relaxing stay. The house itself is so pretty and comfortable. There is a gigantic room off the kitchen where our group of 10 could all sit together and not be cramped. Plus it's a beautiful room! The linens and towels are soft and comfy. (LOVE the heated floor and towel rack in the master bath!) They provide lots of nice extras in the kitchen (some coffee and tea to get you started, paper products, etc). The house manager is very hospitable, efficient, and helpful. We'd book this place again in a heartbeat.

Perfect home for our family getaway
A beautiful, large home with all the amenities. Enough common area for everyone to be together and plenty of bedrooms for all to be comfortable. Far and away the nicest home we have rented for our annual family getaway with all the kids and grandchildren. Having Jaime meet us there at check-in and show us around was not only very helpful, it made us feel very welcome. Would most definitely come back.
Wonderful, spacious and fully stocked country home.
I have nothing but good things to say about our Christmas rental. The owners were very responsive to any and all questions, concerns and requests. The house itself was beautiful with a huge main floor - living room, kitchen and dining rooms which are perfect for large family gatherings. The house was the best stocked we have rented and we were happy to find that everything was as pictured and listed on the site. The linens were very nice and beds were very comfortable. The location is great for being in the country but a short drive to stores, coffee shops and other necessary trips. We could not have asked for a better Christmas house.
Thank you for your wonderful review and for being perfect house guests.
We hope you think of us in the future and return for another visit.
Friends weekend fall get away
Great house to rent for a family/friends get away! The house is in a lovely rural area. Large flat lawn, lovely large patio . The house is VERY well stocked. The common area is large and everyone can find a spot to watch TV, play a game or
relax and read a book. Bedrooms are comfortable and will def. Accommodate your needs. Planning with the owner and manager was a breeze. I highly recommend this rental.
We are so happy you had a great time!
You were perfect house guests and left everything very nice.
Please come back again for another get-away.
Beautiful property! Loved to setting and the home.
We had a wonderful time at this lovely home in Newtown. Lots of great restaurants around and delicious pizza delivered! We enjoyed the fire pit outside and wished the indoor fireplaces were operable. The kitchen is well equipped and the dining room accommodated 12 of us. All beds comfortable and cozy.
Thank you for your very nice review.
We like to hear when guests find our great local places to enjoy.
