El alojamiento

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.

Atención a los huéspedes

You will not see me at this property but a caretaker and cleaning lady will see to your needs.

El barrio

Litchfield County is classic Connecticut. Historic, beautiful, rural with rolling hills and water everywhere. There are a few other homes and two summer camps on the pond. Our street is quiet. Most homes are located within sight of the water. Its like our big, common, back yard. You will see our friendly neighbors as the homes are close but there is a surprising amount of privacy if that's what you prefer.

Four state forests are nearby and every drive is a scenic one. In winter, the pond is used for cross-country skiing, snow-mobiling, snow shoeing and ice fishing. Downhill skiing is 15 minutes driving distance from the house.

The town of Winsted, three miles away, offers many activities including antique and curio shops, festivals and community events, restaurants, wineries, go carts, batting cages, a free-public skate park, a multiplex movie theatre for everyone, and a dinner movie theater for adults.

Cómo moverse

This is a rural home and you will need a car. There is no public transportation available.

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.

Normas de la casa
La hora de llegada es a partir de las 18:00

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.

Children must be watched at all times. We cannot accommodate pets or smokers.

Personal floatation 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 snow mobilers.

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.

We loved Christine's home and had a great stay. The location is secluded and perfect for a quiet and peaceful getaway. The home was very clean, comfortable, and well equipped with the essentials as well as kayaks for enjoying the lake. Great host, smooth process and overall excellent stay.

The place is larger than I anticipated, clean, and very well stocked with a beautiful view. Christine gave very clear instructions about all aspects of the stay which helped to reduce my anxiety and reflects a strong attention to detail :) There is a very close neighbor I was concerned about bugging while out on the deck, but I think all was well. No cell service is a plus! Off the grid- but Wifi worked great and there is a land line.

I'm glad you enjoyed your time at the cottage. Just a note for potential guests, cell service depends on your provider. I have great service at the house with Sprint.

First the hosts- Christine and her husband were great at getting back to me with answers and approval of several changes I had to make to the reservation. I’m a planer and planned the trip two months in advanced; however, some of my guests were not as reliable (family!) and changed their minds several times which led to all of the changes. I really appreciated how understanding they were. The cottage- I had a wonderful stay. The house was cozy, tidy and comfortable, but obviously, the most wonderful part of the entire trip was the outdoors: the deck, the pond and the kayaks at the house. We kayaked every day of our stay, several times. My niece and nephew spent all day in the water, as there is a shallow area off the dock, perfect for my seven year old niece who is just learning to swim. The kitchen had all the cooking tools we needed, and we grocery shopped at a Big Y supermarket nearby (close enough that we made a second trip), so that was easy. I particularly loved the two book areas, one in the “kids room” and the other in the kitchen area, even though I was too busy having and keeping an eye on the kids fun to read. There is a television with basic channels which we barely used, because we stayed mostly outdoors. However, I would suggest bringing some DVDs if you have children with you, we were fortunate to have great weather, but I can see needing it if it happened to rain. There were three things I wanted to get out of this trip: a break from the city, a vacation for my mom, and quality time spent with my nephew and niece, and this was the perfect choice. Thank you Christine!

I am a writer, blogger and a published author of aviation-related books, a married woman in her mid fifties. 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 airbandb was in Abu Dhabi in 2011. It was a great experience. Since then I've used airbnb about 40 times as a guest all over the world. I enjoyed it so much that 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.

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.
