Interaction with guests

Our land is surrounded by the Pawling Nature Reserve, so we are nestled amongst beautiful nature and an abundance of interesting birds and wildlife. Our closest neighbors are around 1/4 mile away. Lots of opportunities for walks and hikes from the house. Nearby Pawling has a pretty downtown with restaurants and shops and a great Farmer's Market in summer. Wingdale is close by but limited amenities. Kent, CT is around 20 mins away and is pleasant for a visit and for shopping/eating.
Wingdale and Pawling stations are both closeby (10 mins and 15 mins respectively) on the Metro North Line into NYC.
No smoking in the house please.
