Comfy, Fun Wrapped in Convenient Seclusion

February 18, 2015

Are you looking to get away with a group for work or family? Are you looking to simply spend time away from home alone or with a loved one? This gem of a cottage is located at a perfect place near West Cornwall, CT. It is close to some great dining, perfect hiking trails and gorgeous scenery with some fun stops on the drive north as well. The price is right too!!!! It is near skiing, fishing and all kinds of other outdoor activities. If the outdoors isn't your style and you simply want to get away read, work, cook, have a romantic weekend or play games around the cabin it is fitted for that as well. Ned, one of the owners, is wonderful to work with. I highly suggest this to anyone :)

WOW, what a break from stress!

June 13, 2014

This little charming cottage is nestled in the woods of a beautiful setting, with a river for walking by or going in. The little home had everything we needed, but we just loved the outdoors, all it offered and chance to go--not too far--when we wanted to eat out, dine, shop and enjoy culture. This is a steal, a gem, for busy folks whom need to slow way down.
