An incredible house steps from a very fun ski mountain

  • 5 of 5

Three other couples, my husband, and I had a fantastic NYE trip at this home. The house is stunning -- it's so unique and charming, but everything is brand new and in great condition. We utilized all three fireplaces during our stay!! And the apartment above the garage was PERFECT for my friends who have a baby.

Kurt was so helpful and even left us nuts for cracking, a Christmas tree, and chestnuts for roasting!

The house is also only a 5 minute walk to Mohawk Mountain, which was a perfect ski mountain for us -- lots of green/blue trails, short lines, and lessons for those who wanted them.

The ONLY critiques I have -- and these are very minor -- is that the kitchen could use some more glassware for a big group, and the bedrooms are a bit sparse (minimal furniture/bedding/pillows). But overall, this house was perfect for us and we had an unforgettable stay there!

This property has incredible views and is literally next to the slopes. The interior is well though out and beautifully put together. The house had everything we could need and some. We had incredible support from Kurt during our stay and will without a doubt be back! Thank you Kurt!

Wonderful country home with a thoughtful and very helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely Thanksgiving at this beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable country home in the Litchfield Hills. Kurt was accommodating and easy to work with, and we loved the spacious, well-equipped kitchen, cozy fireplaces, and beautiful setting. Lots of room to relax and take in the surroundings.

This house is wonderful. It is as pristine as they say!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband and two young children and we could not have found a better place for our family. The owner bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed and gave us suggestions of things to do in the area. We are looking forward to going back. You can't go wrong with this house!
