Please contact us directly as we do not require purchasing absurd amounts of expensive liability insurance to stay. Nor do we charge service fees to our guests. VRBO charges the owners to list AND the guests to reserve. That is NOT our policy. Search The Amselhaus to reserve in a normal fashion. VRBO no longer allows the owners control over our policies. We will no longer be processing any reservations through this site.

Each 2 story rental will comfortably accommodate 6 people. All linens and soaps are provided. The bedrooms are equipped with ultra-comfortable beds, luxury linens and two bedrooms have views of the Housatonic River. The property includes private river access, great for fly fishing! A relaxing porch with lovely mountain and river views. A shared patio area with comfortable seating, gas and charcoal grills as well as a stone bonfire pit is available. We are within walking distance to a General store with a great Deli, a Bank, a Package store and the famous Appalachian Trail.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our four sons wanted some real family time before half of the kids jetted off to college. We explored a number of properties in western Connecticut. The innkeeper for the Amselhaus was incredibly friendly and communicative from the very start and we felt welcome before we even walked in the door. Once there, we felt instantly at home. I can honestly say I have never stepped into a vacation rental and felt as instantly at home and comfortable. We stayed in the north house which was perfect for our family. There were fresh cookies for all of us, coffee for the making in the morning, all the kitchen items one would need as well as a book of information about where we could eat out and activities we could take part in in the area. We sat on the porch and watched the river, the kids played croquet and "chilled out" in the living room watching old Sponge Bob episodes in the evening. (We don't have cable TV at home so this was a treat for them....even the older ones.) Every part of the trip was made special by the accommodations. And the review written about the comfortable beds were right on. We slept in absolute comfort. We are all looking forward to coming back again and my husband and I are entertaining the idea of an anniversary trip for just the two of us.

There are many great activities to take part in including Kent Falls down the road and a mining museum. There are restaurants and even some that deliver to the Amselhaus.

If you are looking for a comfortable place to come with family or just for a couple, I can not rate this place more enthusiastically. My only fear is as word gets around about this gem, we wont be able to book it.
