Great place to stay and Virginia is an excellent host.

A spotlessly clean, comfortable, beautiful, private, well-appointed home tucked into a peaceful forest enclave--I could not have asked for a more perfect place. Virginia is an incredibly sweet and thoughtful host--she made sure we had everything we needed and then some (she had thoughtfully left basics--milk, cream, eggs, bread, etc.--plus some lovely extras, like fresh berries, good cheese, and other snacks). The kitchen is really well-stocked--it has everything you could need for cooking or baking. The house is spacious inside, but for me the best parts were the screened porch and the patio (where I frequently watched a doe and her fawns with much pleasure). Staying at Virginia's was an absolute treat, and I'd return in a heartbeat.

Virginia's home is lovely, really well maintained and fully equipped with all the facilities one would need for a comfortable stay We had no troubles during our stay. The welcome note had all the possible details for the house and tips to shop in the neighborhood which made our lives very easy. Virginia is a great host and this was a very pleasant experience

This was our first stay at an Airbnb and Virginia could not have been more helpful, making herself constantly available via phone and text. The house is very clean and well appointed and the grounds are well cared for. Snacks and breakfast items were plentiful and good quality. It was a perfect location for us as we spent 4 days at the nearby Travelers golf tournament. The house is in a suburban environment but feels secluded with plenty of trees and no homes in sight on either side. There is a wooded lot behind. You can faintly hear traffic on nearby highway 384, but that didn't bother us and we appreciated the close access point to our destination. Highly recommended!

Virginia's house was absolutely beautiful! It was so clean, it sparkled. This was our first experience with airbnb but it won't be our last!! Virginia was quick to respond to our messages and very friendly when we spoke. The house is decorated nicely and very warm, inviting and comfortable. It's very close to markets and dining and great walking trails at Chase mountain. The refrigerator was generously stocked with breakfast food as well as fruit and snacks. We would highly recommend Virginia as your hostess!!

Connecticut is a beautiful spot to visit ! This home is lovely when in the area. Easy access to highways and areas nearby for eventful things to do. Easy access to Boston as well or Rhode Island where there is much to do. Then you can come back to the quiet and peacefulness of a home away from home. The two cardinals I saw one morning as I was opening the bedroom window was a special treat to my week visiting with family and friends.

We've just added our Florida condo in tropical surroundings which we love as a sunny ocean beach escape! Also great for tennis and bicycling. The town nearby has a Key West flavor.

In Connecticut, we love our tall trees and country setting near hiking trails and lakes for kayaking, but also the fact that we are close to the city.

We hope you enjoy our souvenirs of travel to faraway continents! We love to entertain people from all parts of the world.

We enjoy our family, and a good book or play, music, and travel to see the art, architecture, and especially, the wonderful food of different countries.
