Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a last-minute quick getaway, and what a wonderful little place it was. The owners were great, very responsive. The whole experience, from the initial entry to leaving was seamless, easy, and charming. The interior is completely magical, and the owners stocked it with everything you could need for a casual stay. There was even some tasty farm-fresh treats - milk, eggs, bread, jam, yogurt!

All in all, an awesome, charming and comfy place. Will definitely be coming back!

Charming cottage for a relaxing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The Gate House Cottage was cozy and inviting from the first moment we stepped in. Les and Dave thought of every detail. The farm fresh breakfast waiting in the refrigerator was wonderful! We visited the Danbury Train Museum (very interesting) and Putnam Park, a Revolutionary War Encampment site? As history buffs it was quite a find. Lots of beautiful countryside surrounds the property. It was a perfect weekend getaway.

Beautiful and simple with all the necessities!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is lovely and cozy, with low ceilings, so tall guests beware! Neither me nor my partner are so tall that it was a problem at all. The cottage was very warm and the owners keep it stocked with nice records, DVDs, and games for rainy days. There are a lot more attractions than expected nearby, and many attractions and resources are within 5-15 minutes of the property! And ideal little getaway spot for two to unplug and enjoy :)

Lovely small cottage in a wooded area, but not far from town

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little place. It had everything we needed -- including breakfast the first morning. I would recommend it to anyone who is of normal height. My only caveat is if you're very tall, it may not be for you. The ceilings are low.

Just lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a perfect fall weekend here. The cottage was very clean and cozy. The farm-fresh breakfast waiting in the fridge was such a lovely surprise too! We couldn't have been happier with our stay. Many many thanks :)
