“Home away from home in sleepy, charming Connecticut”

I happened upon the cottage more or less by accident, but having stayed there twice since December, I'm confident I'll be returning again and again. The gorgeous (and very accurate) photos clinched it for me, but the cottage is even more unique and exquisite in person. Surprisingly spacious, private nooks abound and even with 4 guests, there is more than enough room for everyone to spread out in order to read, work, or relax in solitude if desired.

Danielle and Mario provide every necessity (don't worry about towels, bathroom products, or even basic cooking staples) and the house is full of lovingly chosen (and even some original) art, lighting, and furniture. The tile work in the bathroom is stunning - and the kitchen, while simple, is more than serviceable if you plan to cook during your stay.

Some of my favorite features: the gorgeous bathroom vanity/cabinetry, the mural in the dining room, the regal stained glass windows, and of course, the fireplace. Both times we've stayed a fire has been built for us, ready to be lit.

There are, almost unbelievably, two separate outdoor spaces: a large deck off the living room and a smaller terrace off the entryway/mudroom, both with unobstructed but very private views of the scenery and the river below. It's easy to imagine the deck is the perfect place to grill some lunch or dinner, relax with a book, and even catch a quick nap in warmer weather.

Danielle is beyond helpful and is an expert on the area; her recommendations on dining and shopping are right on. Salisbury has a very nice wine/liquor store and two adorable bakeries. The Stop & Shop in Canaan is a typical large, suburban grocery store, but LaBonne's Market in Salisbury is a notch more upscale and much more manageable.

New Yorkers (or anyone else not used to well water) might do well to pick up a few bottles in town - though the quality is fine and just a matter of personal preference to some.

Come to the cottage with a bottle of wine (or 2) and make sure to peek at the stars before taking a soak in the tub and turning in for the night.

“Beautiful location, unique cozy cottage.”

The owners were extremely helpful and easy to work with. The cottage was cozy and warm. We stayed in winter and thoroughly enjoyed the lovely fireplace (which was already set for us upon arrival). The views are amazing out on the woods and the river. Would love to also come back in the summer as there is a nice deck and balconies. We went hiking at several nearby places which was also great. Would definitely return.

“Ideal!”
Reviewed 11 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The house is beautiful, as is the entire area. Danielle and Mario were wonderful to work with. For those who like air-conditioning in the hot weather, be aware that the house has no air-condtioning and it is hot there during the summer months. There are two fans in the house.
