Why Arlene Carpenter chose Fairfield County

My husband and I fell in love with the property twenty years ago. It offers the convenience of being close to the center of town while it feels like we're out in the country.

What makes this cottage unique

Apple orchard, tennis court, pool and gardens make this a wonderful setting.

Five Stars Are Not Enough!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cottage for a month this summer and can confirm that all the positive reviews are spot on. The cottage, grounds and hospitality of Arlene and Gerard greatly exceeded our expectations. Our every need was anticipated and provided for by our wonderful hosts. We have already booked for next summer!

Cutest Cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our time at the Gardener's Cottage. We had everything we needed, including hosts who were available to help us in any way. We felt very comfortable for our entire stay and hope to return. I highly recommend this cottage. Everything is just as it is pictured on the website, but even more inviting in person.

A Delightful month!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the Stone Cottage for the month of December, to be near my family in Fairfield.

Arlene and Gerard obviously take much pride in their cottage, appointing it with comfortable and ample furniture, and a handsome, updated bathroom. The grounds are nothing less than spectacular,with 3 acres of mown grass and gardens, tennis courts, and a pool. I felt as though I was living in an English country cottage. This rental is unique and very special, as are its owners!
