House in the Woods is secluded and close to most of what you want! Five minutes from ECSU; 15 from UConn; 5 minutes from shopping; half hour from Mark Twain House. And much more.
Still...once down the driveway, you are tucked away – surrounded by trees and pond.
Listing includes 1 bedroom, 1 bath; for more rooms, see Woods Room - Fresh Air and Peace, and Lake Room - Fresh Air and Peace.
Good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families. People from all walks of life welcome.
The Main Bedroom has a day bed. It can be made up as 1 single, 2 singles, or a queen-sized bed.
ARE YOU SENSITIVE TO NOISES? Please be aware this bedroom is below a bathroom. You may hear water flowing, especially early in the morning. If this kind of noise disturbs you, there are complimentary earplugs.
We call our place The House in the Woods. The reason we fell in love with the house was the 73 windows...with no other house in view at all...and no roads going by our yard. We love the light...combined with the seclusion provided by the dense woods.
Beyond that, we love the the ample kitchen; the relaxed breezeway; the comfy dining room and living room; the ceiling fans; the cozy fireplace; the decks on east and west; the gas grill; the brook and the pond; the "camp out" space (read campfire and picnic area); and the trampoline and covered (unheated) swimming pool.
There is a large smart TV in the basement, as well as an elliptical machine and a weight bench and hand weights. Guests are free to use them, with prior arrangement.
Disponible para huéspedes
Guests are free to use any and all of these areas. We require a waiver for use of the pool and trampoline.
If you'd like to cook a meal, you will find the kitchen well-equipped and easy to use. If you want hot dogs and s'mores, just let us know and we can usually get a fire going at the camping area. If you want to grill steaks, go for it! We do request that you clean up at least as well as a teenager when you're done. :)
Business travelers may need office space, and if that's the case, we're happy to share one of the two offices in our home.
In general, we are relaxed and easy about our spaces.
Atención a los huéspedes
We have fairly full lives, so may or may not be around much. We are not, however, intensely private people. We're open to interaction as you and we have time.
If you're a private person, just let us know and we're happy to give you ample space and alone time.

Terry and Judy are very interested in International Development and the good it does. Favorite vacation spots have been Hvar Island in Croatia and Ko Tarutao in Thailand. We take a relaxed, comfortable pace when traveling, and also when hosting. It's fun getting to know people. At home, we always try to be in the swing enjoying the pond and a glass of wine as the sun dips beneath the trees.
