About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 5 Sleeps

This historic 1880s train depot is located in the quiet town of Cornwall Bridge, Connecticut, about two hours' drive north of Manhattan. The peaceful spot was immortalized by James Thurber and in photos by Walker Evans.

The two large downstairs rooms feature feature high ceilings, plenty of light and stunning woodwork. Wonderful for an artist or photographer, this space can be used as a studio, or simply as a relaxing living room. The adjoining open, modern kitchen has a full refrigerator and freezer, oven, dishwasher and appliances.

The renovated second floor, which has gables and beautifully angled walls, has two sunny bedrooms and an office with a working fireplace.

There are one and a half bathrooms; the upstairs bathroom has a shower in an antique claw-foot bathtub. The Weber BBQ grill is perfect for outdoor cooking.

Renowned for fly fishing, the peaceful Housatonic River is just across the lawn. Mohawk Ski Area is ten minutes away and other ski areas north on route 7 in Mass.
