Charming Guesthouse in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently sold our house and needed a place to stay in August. We were fortunate to find this lovely guesthouse on a beautiful and peaceful 4 acre estate. We loved everything about this clean, bright and fresh guesthouse.It was large, about 800 sq. ft. and fully stocked with everything you need to live as if you were home. It had a perfect layout with a bathroom, kitchen , living room and a separate bedroom. A bonus was a large and comfortable screened in porch with a grill. The location was excellent, close to town, Redding, Easton, Bethel, Danbury and 84. There is a wonderful Italian restaurant less than 4 miles away called Tambascio's. We thoroughly enjoyed our month at this lovely guesthouse which I would highly recommend. Janet, the owner and Debbie, the property manager are both a pleasure to deal with. Newtown is great town with many things to do. We especially enjoyed Lake Zoar , Sticks and Stones (to take a short hike) and of course the ice cream at Ferris Acres Creamery.

Very well maintained and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is comfortable, clean and although "in the woods" it is about ten minutes from the Metro North rail station in Bethel, CT. From there day tripping to NYC is a breeze.

A nice cottage but needs a few updates

  • 4 of 5

We were pleased with the property owners and manager. The location and setting were excellent . The bedroom area had been updated. However the furniture in the living room was outdated and extremely uncomfortable. The bathroom could use a bit of work but I would recommend making improvements on the living room furniture in the near future.

Owner's Response: Hello, You were very nice house guests, thank you for leaving our place nice and in good condition.. We heard you during your stay and have taken out the living room furniture and replaced it with (2) new sofas that fit perfect and feel great. For your discomfort we would like to give you a one night free stay with any one night paid... We will be changing the photos soon showing the new furniture. Sincerely, Janet

My stay at the cottage was delightful.

  • 5 of 5

i stayed almost 3 weeks and my stay was wonderful. The owner & property manager were very friendly & helpful. the cottage was very clean and comfortable. the property is beautiful with big, gorgeous old trees. too bad the weather was cold because we didn't get to enjoy the screened in porch. that would be delightful in Spring, Summer & Fall.

Beautiful cottage, spacious with full kitchen, screened-in porch and a lovely view of the grounds. Situated in a wooded area, surrounded by mansions that have to be seen to be believed. Everything was great. GPS is a necessity for getting around on the winding roads.

Secluded Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a month and enjoyed the stay. Very nice and responsive owners and house manager, cottage cleaned weekly. Bonus screened porch with comfortable furniture overlooking rustic backyard, awaken to birds singing and horses whinnying. Nicely stocked kitchen and towels. Note, a large home on same property rents, you will sometimes see children playing out back of the cottage when this is rented (which was never an issue) and bathroom is at the opposite end of the cottage from the bathroom with windows in between in the living room, shower is located at a slanted point in the home, ok if you are 6'0 or under. Picture of living area needs to be updated to include a futon type bed at end of room, a coffee table and a vinyl flower covering on the couch instead of the white covering. Both pieces of furniture shown need to be replaced to afford better comfort. There is no washer/dryer. A/C are box units in bedroom and living room. Overall a good value and we would recommend for anyone staying in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. You were wonderful house guests, we hope you return in the future. This fall the bath room will be completely renovated removing the tub/shower and creating a larger walk-in shower. The sofa is the same sofa as the white shown, the cotton gold fabric was our winter look, the white slip covers are the summer...We did not put the whites on this year. Great suggestion to add a washer and dryer. We will look into adding that in the fall. We are always making improvements to our place, new photos will be added...Thank you again for being wonderful house guests.
