FALL IN LOVE WITH NEW ENGLAND any time of year at our four season cottage in Litchfield County. Our waterfront home is on Connecticut's 76-acre Park Pond in the foothills of the Berkshires, with scenery and proximity to many activities.
The cottage has a great-room design with living and dining room all connected and offering views of the water. Sliding glass doors lead to a large deck. A barbeque grill is on the lower deck making it easy to cook and eat up on the deck or down on the beach. The lawn ends at our small grassy beach and dock.
On the first floor there is 1 bedroom with a queen bed, a new bathroom with tub/shower, and kitchen. The second floor has two more bedrooms with twin beds in each. There is a brand-new bathroom with generous sized-shower on the second floor.
Good airflow and ceiling fans in every bedroom maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the house. There is no air conditioning and none is needed. Forced air heat keeps the house toasty in winter.
Cable television and high-speed internet is available and you can watch DVDs on the color TV in living room and downstairs bedroom. A telephone is available for local, emergency and calling card calls.
Children are always welcome but their adults must understand that this property is on the water.
Servicios y zonas comunes
The house, garden, back deck, swimming pond, dock, kayaks, grill, and front parking lot are all for you to use and enjoy.

Otros aspectos destacables
ACTIVITIES: Leaf-peep, nature and bird watch. Fish and kayak in the fall and spring. Snow shoe, ski, skate and ice fish in the winter. Swim, tube and kayak or canoe in the summer.
Our guests are encouraged to go "green" by being conservative in the use of water and soap. For this reason, the property is not appropriate for large parties. There is no dish or clothes washer. You must recycle paper, cardboard, plastic and metal bottles, cans and take out containers. Rinse all materials containing food or drink before depositing in the recycle bin.
Children must be watched at all times. We cannot accommodate pets or smokers.
Personal flotation devices (some are provided at the house) must be worn at all times when using the kayaks.
Check in is at 6pm and check out is 2 on weekends and 12 during the week. Check with us in the week prior to your stay if you would like to arrive earlier or depart later.
Please respect our neighbors and do not make loud noises after sunset or before sunrise.
This house is in the country which means you will see animals like chipmunks, mice, foxes and sometimes bears. If this bothers you, this may not be an appropriate place for you to stay.
The pond has an 8 mph speed limit. It is used mostly for recreational boating and fishing. In the winter there is ice fishing and sometimes if it is cold enough there may be snowmobilers.
The house uses a septic tank. Careful and judicious use of water and soap assures that the pond will remain clean and clear into the future.
While a professional cleaner will arrive on your departure day, you are expected to leave the home reasonably tidy, dishes washed, food removed and garbage emptied. Dirty sheets and towels should be placed in the basket for the housekeeper.
All adult guests will have to sign a waiver of liability before the key is sent.
We do not allow pets. Please do not ask.

I am a writer, blogger and a published author of aviation-related books, a married woman in my sixties. I have four grown children. I live in Connecticut and travel about 6 months out of the year for work, usually on my own.
My first time using airbnb was in Abu Dhabi in 2011. Since then I've used it all over the world. In 2012, I became an airbnb host at my home in a New York city suburb and also at 2 Berkshire Mountain vacation properties in Litchfield County, Connecticut. I'm now honored to be a superhost.
When people "get it" that this is a home stay, not a hotel, the experience can be fantastic.
I have met some amazing people and stayed in some amazing homes. I am airbnb's biggest fan.
