Elegant, comfortable and historic!

  • 5 of 5

We brought a large group (17) of family and friends to stay in this house for a long weekend surrounding our 30th wedding anniversary and renewal of wedding vows. With its 8 bedrooms and lavish common areas (huge kitchen, media room, formal living room, dining room, library, breakfast room, and multiple game rooms), everyone in our group found much to love about this house. And the most amazing thing about the house was that in spite of its age and historic nature, we had plenty of bathrooms - a must, especially when the group is so large. We held the ceremony for the renewal of vows in the lovely, large yard, making good use of the wonderful old gazebo. The dozens of guests at our party couldn't get over how beautiful the house was, how richly decorated it was, and yet how comfortable we all felt in it - so many wonderful places to sit and talk, to play games, even to do yoga sessions for 7 or 8 people at a time! We cooked meals for the group, and two of our recent college graduates even made a traditional English tea for the group and served it using the beautiful old tea service in the breakfast room. Natalie, the owner, was so easy to work with - she helped me with suggestions, told us where everything belonged, showed us the multiple speakers and karaoke machines, and gave us freedom to use the yard for our party. We really felt that we had won the lottery by being able to rent this beautiful house. We hope to come back again some day!

Beautiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The home fit our large golf group (15) with room to spare. Conveniently located between Foxwoods and Mohegan Casinos. I would definitely rent this lovely home again.

Great Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Great space. Seven siblings together for three days. Bedrooms and baths for all. Three or four different entertainment areas, so space to be alone or together in different groups. We used it for 14, but room for more. Supermarket and drug store and liquor close by...plus several different style take outs .

Amazing, Beautiful, Pefect Home

  • 5 of 5

Weekend was amazing! Natalie was so helpful in answering all my questions before and during the event. We had 16 girls for my sisters bachelorette party, everyone was so happy and impressed with the place. Highly recommend! Foxwoods and Mohegan were about 10-15 drive or $15-20 Uber. The kitchen was great, had everything we needed to cook dinner and plenty of room to just hang out all together. So happy we found this place! Thank you!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I spent a weekend at Natalie's property – she was a pleasure to deal with and the home is great! The bedrooms are spacious and all uniquely and tastefully decorated. Almost all have their own bathrooms with modern fixtures. The kitchen is extremely spacious and the various common spaces are also great, each with a different vibe.
