This beautiful country home and 11 acres are ideal for quiet family retreats and laid-back vacations. Enjoy the pool and acres of lush, green space. Take a walk or bike down to the river.
Minutes to downtown, Roxbury Country Store, and fishing and canoeing on the Shepaug River. Recognized historical home surrounded by Land Trust and plentiful parkland.
Your own corner of country land where Roxbury, Washington, and New Milford align on a certified scenic road. Includes a stable for your horse!
The whole property is yours for the booking. The main house is yours to stay, and the fields to roam. There is an old writer's cabin we hope to soon renovate, so it will remain inaccessible until next season.
The pool is separated by a fence to safeguard young children. The pool is unheated by choice. We find people love it as an escape from summer heat.
The house is built in 1793, and I ask you treat it with a delicate touch.
No one will be living on the property while you are there.
The lawn is mowed before 3pm on Fridays and the fields too every other Sunday in the summer. Pool is also cleaned and maintained on Fridays before 3pm.
If you desire privacy, I will work with you and my team to schedule pool and lawn around your convenience.
Air conditioning in master bedroom only. Fans in the two additional bedrooms. The downstairs tends to stay cool.
In the colonial fashion, our two stairwells are very steep. This allows maximum use of space, however makes the listing inadvisable for grandparents, or guests who have difficulty walking. All bedrooms are on the second floor. The house is not handicap accessible.
Interaction with guests
When you'd like to book, please ask me any questions, and introduce yourself and your party. I want to ensure this listing is your perfect match, to plan ahead should you have specific requests.
I plan to greet each party, show you around, help you move in. Occasionally I am due elsewhere, and will coordinate with you, and my neighbors to ensure a comfortable checkin.
Please write me during your stay. If you have any doubts or minor issues, tell me while you're there. I may be able to fix it before you depart, and ensure the rest of your stay is even more enjoyable.
Please let me know how many people will be staying.
For every adult after four adults, there is a charge of $40.
For every adult or child after 6 people, there is a $40 charge (adults or children). I will help to work this out in booking.

I lived in the Philippines before New York City, where I worked as the 1st Assistant Director and Screenwriter on a variety of Chinese language productions. Though my Mandarin is out of practice, I also served as a translator and interpreter between cast and crew in both Chinese and English.
I studied Chinese Language at Oberlin College, and Film at New York University Tisch.
After spending time in China and experiencing the restriction of internet censorship, I was inspired to learn SEO and discover ways to find and be found on search engines. I now work at BrandYourself, a tech startup which helps individuals and small businesses promote themselves and be found online.
I currently work as a writer, director, and photographer in Greater NYC.
