Why Arlene Carpenter chose Fairfield
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.

Cozy and comfortable with great location.
This was our second time staying in Arlene and Gerard's Gardener's Cottage. It was the meeting place for family over the Christmas holidays and we could not have had a better stay. The place is cozy and comfortable with everything you need for a home away from home.
The town of Fairfield provided convenient shopping and good restaurants just a few miles away and the train to NYC was right near by as well. We highly recommend this idyllic home in the hills of Connecticut.
Thanks so much for your kind words. I hope we become a Christmas tradition. Best to both of you.
An idyllic home away from home!
We stayed in the cottage for three wonderful months with our 10 month old son, and could not have been more comfortable. The cottage itself is cozy and well-equipped (we loved the beds and the kitchen supplies!) while the grounds are absolutely stunning with immaculate gardens, a lovely pool and lounge area and deer that frequently wander through the orchards. Arlene and Gerard are attentive, kind and generous hosts; they made us feel welcome, shared local tips and were always available to help with whatever we needed. Upon our arrival, the house was stocked with basics that made it easy to settle in and from the first day onward, we were in love! We highly recommend this special property and hope to have the chance to visit Arlene and Gerard again soon.
Magical place w/ all ammenities
My husband and I stayed here a month. The home is better than represented with gardens, chirping birds, deer and peace and quiet. Yet close to charming downtown Fairfield and beaches. Fully appointed. The owners are welcoming, generous and thoughtful. We will be back and are sad to go.
We're just as sad to see you leave. We couldn't have had more delightful and generous people. See you soon we hope.
Thanks Arlene and Gerard!
The property is wonderful, but what makes it so special are the owners. They are gracious and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our month there and have already booked for next year.
We loved having you here. Let's make next year even better. Wanda, I promise to find a way to fix that shutter:)
Amazing is not enough
I was in CT for work and staying here instead of a corporate hotel was AWESOME! The property is gorgeous, impeccable, clean, if you were a guest at Martha Stewart's CT house, this could be it! Arlene was also the sweetest host, I got sick during my stay and she brought me tea and honey AND The Sunday Times, could not have felt more at home! If I ever need to come back I'll be staying here again for sure. Also important to note, the garden is stunning, such a beautiful environment with great attention to detail.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We're always happy when we can delight our tenants.
We need to thank you for all the Subway gifts you left us. My brother is a HUGE Subway fan. He wore the hat all day Memorial Day and I couldn't pry the thermal cup out of his hands. Thanks for making us stars with the family!
Wonderful choice over conventional hotels
I recently completed a six week stay in the cottage during a relocation to the area. I chose the cottage over a long term hotel alternative and it was the best possible choice. The cottage is amazing, with luxury bed and bath amenities. It's absolutely peaceful while being close to downtown Fairfield and the Merritt Parkway. Arlene and her husband are excellent hosts and took care of every need. The property is beautiful as well and so are the surrounding neighborhoods. There is no comparison to a hotel - this is the only way to stay and have an atmosphere to relax and recover whether from work or sightseeing. 100% recommendation!
Thank you so much for your kind review. We’re so happy you were comfortable here and we’re thrilled you will be our neighbors in the future.
You took such wonderful care of our property and certainly made a remarkable margarita. What more could we ask...you’re perfect!
Two bedroom gardener's cottage on a 3 acre estate with a tennis court, pool and gardens. Only a short distance from Fairfield Beach for summer activities. A short drive to ski areas in the north. Beautiful area for walking and hiking. A quiet setting surrounded by trees.
