Our 1792 Historic Farmington home is the ideal vacation rental for your exploration of Connecticut and the Farmington Valley. Each season brings its own unique appeal and special activities from antiquing, golfing, and ballooning to biking, canoeing, and fishing.
We are near many local venues including Miss Porter's School, The Hillstead Museum, The Farmington Polo Grounds, The Freedom Trail, and Lake Compounce, one of the oldest amusement parks in the country.
Complimentary Breakfast served at Farmington Inn & Suites located steps from the house.
Inquire about 1bedroom In-law apartment available for an additional fee.
We rented the house as a family coming from different directions to attend a Memorial for our Mother.
The house was not clean. The linens, kept in a closet downstairs, smelled musty and dirty by the time we got down into the pile. No one collected the soiled linens so there was a substantial pile in the bathroom by the time we left after four days (there were 8 of us). The curtains were filthy and the house was pretty dirty. There were cobwebs and dirt. There is a dishwasher but no cleaing supplies to actually wash your dishes. The furnture is not in good condition and the sitting room )where we were expected to relax and watch TV) had a couch that was completely soiled and so old and uncomfortable it was more comfortable sitting on the hard wood floor. NOTHING like the brochure. We would not re-visit.
Loved the house. The beds were such a treat after our long road trip up from Georgia. The kitchen could've used more pots/pans/bowls/cookie sheets, etc... (although tons of plates & glasses). It was great to have all of the Kleenex & TP supplied.
The house is right on Main Street, so if you like peace and quiet to go to sleep, you will not get that. Traffic zooms by all the time...but we were fine with that. The listing above mentions WiFi, but the actual house doesn't have WiFi, that is located at the hotel. Also, the TV stations are very limiting in the house. ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, TBS & the Weather Channel - and that's about it. An update to the TV selection would be a great improvement - MSNBC, ESPN, Disney Channel, CNN, HGTV, just to name a few.
The best part was the Christmas tree that was waiting for us in the house. It was soooooooo special to our kids (and the grown ups too!!!!!) It was so nice to wake up Christmas morning and have the presents under a tree. Thanks for letting us put the decorations on too! What a special, unexpected treat. We were still in the house when the 12/26 blizzard hit. The guys were there before the snow started laying down salt/sand and they were quick to get us plowed out.
We will return!!!!
