Private Cottage on the Famed Housatonic River

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath

Comfortable and charming cottage on a quiet dead end road, directly on the scenic Housatonic River. Enjoy the large open grounds with a butterfly garden leading to the cottage.

Enjoy the spectacular view of the river through the glass siding doors in the spacious living room. The furniture compliments the wood-burning fireplace. The dining area adjacent to the living room brings in abundant natural light through the skylight and corner windows. The built-in seating with colorful loose cushions makes the area cozy. The dining area also faces the river.

The kitchen is fully equipped with major appliances plus a full array of cooking utensils and serving dishes.

The large master bedroom tastefully furnished with a queen size bed and antique furniture complete with window draperies in a fly-fishing motif.

The second bedroom with a full size bed is located on the opposite end of the cottage allowing complete privacy.

The Appalachian Trail intersects the village and many nature trails are available nearby. Many bike paths, bird walks, nature conservation activities are available as well.

Visits to the Berkshire area are a 45 minutes drive: Tanglewood, Shakespeare & Co., Berkshire Theatre Festival and nearby mansions such as The Mount and Naumkeag.

The renowned Music Mountain is just behind the cottage (8 minutes drive), which offers summer-long jazz and classical concerts. Nearby are the historical villages of Lakeville, Salisbury, Sharon and Kent for fine dining, antiquing and gallery visits.

The cottage is also close to Lime Rock Race Park (5 minutes).

Other outdoor activities include horseback riding, golf, swimming, down-hill and cross-country skiing.

Falls village is a quiet village and in fact is the second smallest hamlet in Connecticut. The cottage is close to Route 7 but located on a quiet private road.

About Teruko Edmonds

I have enjoyed transforming this riverside cottage to open and comfortable interior spaces.

Teruko Edmonds purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Teruko Edmonds chose Falls Village

I love to fly-fish. To have a cottage on the famous Housatonic River with an abundance of trout, is what I had dreamed of.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is situated near the Appalachian Trail and close to many exciting theatrical events. I would like other people to experience the cottage and its environs.

Lovely New England Cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Falls Village! The breakfast nook in the kitchen was great to sit at in the morning with a cup of coffee. We explored the Houstanic River which is right in the backyard! Teruko was easy to work with. We would come back and stay here in a heartbeat!

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This place was charming and very peaceful. Beautiful river in the backyard. We enjoyed watching the wildlife. A bunny greeted us when we arrived in the front yard. On a backroad with no lights, flashlights at night are a must. This was a great place for meditating and getting away from the world for a little bit. The kitchen was well organized and there was a lot of space for sitting and relaxing. All in all felt like Home.

What a treasure!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful cottage was perfect for our weekend! The setting is lovely, right on the river! The house is fully stocked with everything we needed and more. We could not have chosen a nicer place to stay for our weekend while attending the racing and car car show at Limerock.

Quiet and cozy

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and ready upon arrival! It is a very charming house sitting right near the river. It was excellent being able to wake up and sip coffee watching the river and all of the birds through the window! It was equipped with everything we needed plus more! I would love to go back in the near future!
