About the area

The Neighborhood Located in the beautiful Litchfield Hills, the cottage is surrounded by lovely countryside and quaint and welcoming New England villages. It is 2 minutes from West Cornwall and its covered bridge, and less than 10 minutes from the Appalachian Trail, Mohawk Mountain Ski Area, Music Mountain, The Lime Rock Park, Road Racing Center of the East, Clarke Outdoors for kayaking, canoeing, and rafting on the Housatonic, and the Housatonic Meadows State Park for fishing, boating and swimming. It is 15 minutes from Lakeville and Lake Wononscopomuc, one of Connecticut's premier deep water lakes with swimming and boating, Lakeville is also home to The Hotchkiss and Salisbury Schools, many fine restaurants, multiple art galleries, and the Scoville Memorial Library, the oldest publicly funded library in the country. It is 20 minutes from the famous Sharon Green and Sharon's beach, tennis courts, and children's play area, and from Millerton, NY with its movie theater, art galleries, bookstore, an old fashioned diner, and the Rail Trail for walking, jogging and biking. Renters at the Cottage have a special beach pass that gives them access to the Sharon beach. A 35 minute drive takes you to Great Barrington , MA for even more shops, restaurants and movie theater. It is 55 minutes from Tanglewood Music, and 25 minutes from Norfolk's Infinity Music Hall; or to you to Millerton, NY with a movie theater, art galleries, bookstore, an old fashioned diner (with updated menu) and the Rail Trail for walking and biking. For skiing, it is 10 minutes from Mohawk Mountain Ski Area, 38 minutes from Catamount Ski Area and SkiButternut. There are the US Eastern Ski Jumping Championships in nearby Salisbury every February. It is one hour from the Berkshires and Tanglewood, and 2 hours from Manhattan. Grocery Stores When coming from the south on Route 7, there is the IGA Supermarket in Kent (about 20 minutes from the cottage). About 5 miles before the cottage on Route 7 at Cornwall Bridge, there is a Country Market delicatessen, coffee shop, and small grocery. When at the cottage, the closest supermarket stores are the Sharon Farm Market (about 15 minutes away) in Sharon's small, and only, shopping center; and LaBonne's Market at 22 Academy St, Salisbury (about 15 minutes away). Both are excellent. Restaurants nearby In West Cornwall there is the Wandering Moose Café, open for the three meals – friendly, good food, and good prices. In the summer there is a special French restaurant open for dinner, RSVP Restaurant, with a set menu for all and the same price, around $100. You bring your own wine. In Lakeville, 10 minutes to the northwest, there is a coffee shop, pizza place and a number of good restaurants. Kent, of course, has a number of very good restaurants.

“Comfy, Fun Wrapped in Convenient Seclusion”

Reviewed 18 Feb 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 :)
