Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, 7 Baths, Sleeps 12

This striking 2.7 acre New England property blends historic design elements with modern amenities and is perched on a hillside overlooking the peaceful town of Chester, Connecticut. Its historic charm and vast amenities provide a unique backdrop unlike any other. The living room quickly becomes a front row seat to a beautifully crafted historic performance stage. Nestled on the side of the stage is your own personal bowling alley to ignite some friendly competition. The 1500 square foot living room is magnificent with a barrel mahogany ceiling, antique bowling alley, stage and hand painted backdrops, this house was referred to as "The Casino" in 1897 and was used for many town wide parties. The home was completely renovated in 2004 This six bedroom, seven bathroom home has a large common area and is great for groups traveling together. The home is secluded and offers plenty of privacy. You are only a short drive to the heart of Chester where you can dine at amazing restaurants like River Tavern and stroll through the shops along the way. A short adventure to beautiful seaside towns such as Mystic and Old Saybrook, is worth the stunning beach views, historic museums, and let's not forget incredible seafood.

Kitchen- The kitchen is adjacent to the living room and overlooks the large common family room. The kitchen is well stocked with the cookware and tools necessary to prepare food, plates and silverware for maximum occupancy, a blender, coffee maker, pots and pans, glassware, espresso maker, plastic ware, 2 dishwashers, a wine refrigerator, and state of the art stainless steel appliances. There is a dining table in the kitchen that seats six and a breakfast bar that accommodates an additional two people. A dining room table sits in the very next room seating 8.

Bedrooms- The cozy master suite is the perfect place to snuggle up on crisp fall evenings and relax by the fire. The spacious bedroom has a King Mattress, and expansive views, walking out to the hot tub. A second master is complete with a King bed and an attached full bathroom with a large roman tub. The remaining bedrooms are two queen, one double and a loft.

Bathrooms- The master suite is designed with a beautiful shower and elegant makeup vanity. Hand picked tiles line each bathroom wall but the master bathroom is exceptional with a large roman tub, double sinks and a enormous walk in closet. All bathrooms are spacious and updated for your enjoyment.

Exterior- The heated swimming pool and jacuzzi are available May through September and the patio sparkles with New England sunshine. The property is complete with a tennis/basketball court, a swing set, expansive lawns and a three car garage for use during Spring, Summer and Fall months. Built in grill and propane provided.

Other Amenities- The home has a full size washer and dryer for your convenience. The detached 3 car heated garage has an in-law apartment above with a kitchen, large living space, full bathroom and small kitchen table seating four. Cable and WIFI also included.

Take the guessing game out of booking someone's personal home. When you book with Walker Vacation Rentals you are booking with rental management professionals. We specialize in creating the perfect backdrop for you to create memories and it would be our absolute pleasure to host you!

Reviewer Comments:

This is the first time that I've ever arrived at a vacation spot and the rooms / house were even bigger and better than expected. Although, it is beautifully displayed on the internet, I was surprised to find it even more beautiful in person. We are already making plans to visit again in the warmer weather to take advantage of the outdoor space and pool. We had everything we needed within a couple mile radius (coffee, grocery store, places to eat).

Reviewer Comments:

I rented this property for a family vacation for my kids and grandkids for 4 days in August, a central point to meet halfway between Massachusetts and the NY/NJ region. The property's description was so intriguing that I was sure I would in the end be disappointed. In fact, it surpassed the description in so many ways -and my expectations. There was something for everyone at Liberty Manor - a pool, tennis court, playground, stage, electronic piano, drums - and of all things a bowling alley in the living room. My grandkids, ranging in age from 11 to 2 always had something to do - and the adults did as well. My grandkids love to put on shows and there were constant singing and dancing performances - fun for everyone. The house is large, very well appointed and comfortable and is walkable to the adorable town of Chester, CT. It is near some interesting sites as well including the Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam, the Gillette Castle and State Park, and the coast (which we did not have time to visit on this vacation.) As luck would have it, we were there during the Chester Fair which was a delight for all. We could not have been happier with our stay - even the weather was spectacular! Thank you Kelly (owner) and Jeff at Walker Rental.

Reviewer Comments:

My wife and I rented this house for a long weekend getaway with our 3 grown children, spouses/significant others and 2 grandchildren. There was a great amount of room and the amenities were super (pool, big yard, bowling, room to spread out). This is a unique home which provides a real chance for R&R. We've rented many homes over the years, and have found departure day to be overly stressful with the cleaning demands of the owners. Here, however, the cleaning fee is baked into the rental, so all we had to do was straighten up, put out the trash and put a load of towels into the washing machine. This is the way it should be. And, let's be honest, who doesn't love having a bowling alley in the family room? Great rental; highly recommended.

This house was perfect for my family. We were 10 adults and 8 kids ranging from 14 yrs - 20 Month. The house had everything and the stage and bowling ally was a huge hit for all kids. We would stay here again for sure.
