Cute quiet cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was super cute and met all my needs and expectations. The caretaker, Debbie, offered to come over to make sure I was all set. She was lovely and helpful. It was clean, nicely decorated, warm, and had the most amazing bed I've ever slept in! I felt like Her Royal Highness, The Queen of England. It was also incredibly quiet. If you are a city person, or even a suburbanite, you will bask in the utter silence of this cottage.

We recently stayed here for 6 nights and it was perfect! The homeowner was very responsive to emails leading up to our stay and the property manager, Debbie, was great. Will definitely stay again if it is available next time we visit family in Connecticut.

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 However the furniture in the living room was outdated and extremely uncomfortable.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
