5 Bedrooms, 4 Full Bathrooms, 3 Half Baths, 12 Sleeps

A truly unique house, located just 1.5 hours from NYC, features fireplaces, a ping pong table, and indoor lounge areas. The house sits on a 50 acre property with a brook, wooded trails, and plenty of nearby activities. Perfect for a relaxing trip!

*The Space*

The house features 5 bedrooms, 4 baths, and 3 half baths. The large kitchen is fully equipped with plates, pots, and utensils and has a large island with stools, great for cooking with a group. There are three separate terraces for hanging out in small groups, an entertainment room with a large TV, and a full-size ping pong table for indoor entertainment.

Guests need to provide their own towels (indoor and outdoor if needed), sheets, and pillow cases. Pillows and comforters w/ covers or blankets are provided for each bed.

*Interaction with Guests*

We're available to answer questions you have and give recommendations in the area. Take a look at the Guidebook for a few of our favorite places!

*The Neighborhood*

The house is surrounded by a beautifully wooded area, a brook, historic dirt road, as well as lake Lillinonah. There are nearby walking trails and always a sense of serenity. If you'd like to take a break from relaxing, there are some great places to eat, a winery, mini-golf, theater, and plenty of shopping and entertainment within a 10-20 minute drive. Check out the Guidebook / Map for a few of my favorite places.

*Getting Around*

The house is a ten minute drive from the center of town and a seven minute drive from I-84. The nearest train and bus station for picking up guests is Danbury, CT, a 20 minute drive from the house.

*Other Things to Note*

This house is located in the middle of woodlands / nature, it's likely you will see animals like deer, possums, insects, butterflies, birds, etc. This should be part of the charm for anyone staying here!

Amazing House!!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a bachelor party there of 10 guys and we all had room to sleep and tons of bathrooms. Super unique space, brick floors, games, awesome outdoor space with a fire pit. Everyone really enjoyed the weekend. Thanks!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

This place is a real find! I rented this home for a weekend getaway with some old college buddies and it was exactly what we were looking for. It is close to everything you need yet feels like you are in the middle of nowhere. The property is just as secluded and private as you would imagine. There are several wonderful hiking trails in the area including some that lead directly from the property itself. The house itself has a wonderful rustic charm while providing all necessary modern amenities. The kitchen has plenty of space and everything you need to prepare all your meals from a simple lunch to a lavish feast. The new and large charcoal grill is perfect for everything from hot dogs to steaks. There are several areas for dining include a large outdoor stone patio. There is also a perfect Wi-Fi signal which allowed us to get a little work done as well. Perhaps the best feature is the outdoor fire pit where we sat under the stars and swapped stories late into the evening. The host was very accommodating to our every request and able to provide everything that we needed. The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars is because sheets and towels are not included in the price and you are charged extra for more than 6 guests, however these things in no way detracted from our wonderful stay. I would highly recommend this unique and special place and hope to return again someday soon.

AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL and PERFECT FOR A WEEKEND AWAY!

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing! My brother is getting married and asked me to plan a bachelor party. All he wanted to do was spend a weekend away from society with his best friends and this house was perfect for that. Even though it is only a few short miles from the highway you would honestly never know it. My cousin actually made the comment a number of times throughout the weekend that he couldn't even believe we were still in Connecticut. The house is amazing too. Plenty of space for the 8 of us. Everyone was able to have their own bed and basically their own shower. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to get away with a big group. The entertainment center was also perfect in case the weather was bad. We were able to use the tv for games and Netflix to stream concerts while we hung out on the porch. The back patio was perfect for grilling and great for just relaxing at night. The owner of the property was extremely helpful and very receptive to questions and even provided a tour of the house when we arrived just to ensure we didn't miss anything. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed for the weekend. It was honestly amazing and I hope to one day get back here to do it again.

Amazing woodland retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Feels like you are in the middle of nowhere, miles away from civilization, when in fact you are only about 10 minuets from the highway. The house is very unique and very cool. There is a great yard for outdoor activities and there is a lot of room in the house for rainy days or winter days. I would stay in this house any time of the year! If you want a nice get away that is not miles away from civilization then this is the house for you.
