Great host

We needed a weekend off and this was the perfect place. It is not to far from anything in Connecticut while being nice and quiet. The carriage house is well kept and pretty. The owner is gracious and kind. Enjoy your stay!

A great home for a short or long stay!

My family stayed as we were visiting the area. The property is clean, well kept and Jay is a terrific host. The property and area are typical colonial New England. You can't go wrong.
