About the Owner

My husband Chuck and I bought this house as a retirement home. We have 5 grown children and 10 grandchildren. The house is perfect for the 2 of us but expands to serve our large family when they come in from out of town. The finished basement room serves as another bedroom and sometimes, with air mattresses, is a dormitory/playroom for the kids.

A lovely home in a quiet, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We are long term travelers and decided to spend the month of October 2015 in CT. to visit with family and friends. We believe we were the first renters of this property and Patty and Chuck did a superb job of preparing their home for us. They were gracious hosts, even to the extent of having cups of tea ready for us when we arrived. Their instructions were clear and concise such that we did not have to disturb them during our stay. Patty and Chuck's home was 'as advertised' in all ways. It is located in a quiet corner of a quiet neighborhood conveniently close to the interstate system (but not so close that you get road noise.). The community is a great place to go for walk/runs, including a walking path not far from the house. The house itself was clean, the back garden delightful, the kitchen very well stocked, and Patty and Chuck themselves were respectful and accommodating. We would definitely recommend this house to friends and relatives. Patty and Chuck, we hope to stay with you again in 2016!

Wonderful home and very comfortable.We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Patty's house for the month of November of 2015.

We found the home to be exceeding comfortable and just the place to relax after very busy days.

Our daughters and their families live in different towns in the Hartford area. Given that the house is so centrally located it allowed us to visit both in the same day.

Also, my wife did a lot of cooking for our oldest daughter (who had a second son on 11/7) and the kitchen worked out great.

All in all, this is a great place to stay. We plan to do just that next year.

We loved our stay in the Rolling Green house!

  • 5 of 5

I am from CT originally and wanted to take the kids back to see where I grew up - we loved staying at this house. It was the perfect size for our family, it is very pretty and the mornings on the back deck were wonderful. I would highly recommend this house if you are traveling to CT - it is close to the highway so easy to get anywhere - very convenient. We had friends over and there was plenty of room to entertain. I hope to make this trip again and would definitely like to stay here!

Such a beautiful well thought out home. Everything is in its place right where it should be. Super clean , comfortable and well appointed. I could not ask for a nicer home to spend time with family. The area is quiet and centrally located, close to shops and freeways. Thank you for being such amazing hosts. We will surly be back.

From the Owner

Our home is unique, even for this planned unit development, because it's the largest ranch in the neighborhood. With the cathedral ceilings and paladian windows, it seems even larger. The location is perfect for anywhere you might want to go. Our family commuted here from NYC while our grandson was undergoing cancer treatments a few years ago. The house was a haven for them.

From the Owner

I fell in love with the light that fills this house from mornings in the eat in kitchen or out on the deck to afternoons in the living room as the sun sets. I love the convenience of being minutes away from drugstores, food stores \, restaurants and entertainment. There are many quaint little villages close by as well. Water features include the CT River and Long Island Sound. Our community has a 5 mile bike path safe and convenient for walking, jogging or biking.
