Whether you want to experience an authentic pond-side cabin or test out tiny-house living, this is the place. There is total access to the private, spring and stream-fed pond, which is perfect for swimming, canoeing or fishing. There are old trees, flowers and forests on the ten acres that also back onto three sides of an Audubon forest of 160 acres. You will be surrounded by nature and all it's wonders. Fantastic escape from city life and to reap the benefits of country living in total privacy.

The space
The cottage is a renovated, old cabin that was relocated from a local lake. It has a marvelous and close-up view over the pond, and 10 acres of woods and gardens, all yours to enjoy. It has a comfortable double bed and a fold-out single bed (that folds into an armchair), a kitchen and bathroom. It has all amenities, but it's rustic and small, (e.g. the water heater is little, so shower's need to be fast, the fridge is tiny and there is a two-burner stove top.) There is a canoe, kayak, floaties and a fishing rod for the pond, with lots of lounge furniture to hangout on. There is an old, screened-in changing room near the deck and a firepit at your disposal. The property is completely quiet, and the nearest neighbors are far enough that you cannot see nor hear them. There is a 2 person maximum, but one small child can be included. No pets.
There is another house on the property, which cannot be seen from the cottage, and is a distance away. Sometimes I may be there, but other than that everything is yours.

Location

Hampton, Connecticut, United States

The property is situated in a region known as the 'quiet corner' of Northeastern Connecticut. This is because it is more rural than southern or central Connecticut, and has large areas of farmland, rivers and lakes, and state forests.

The area was originally inhabited by the Mohegan, Pequot, Niantic, Nipmuc, Mattabesic, Schaghticoke, Paugussett Indians.

It is a historically rich part of America and was one of the first areas settled by Europeans. Remnants of its past can be found in the many museums, old towns and the architecture.

During the warmer months there is a wide selection local farmers' markets, selling organically grown produce and products.

There are two wineries close by: the closest is Sharpe Hill Vineyard in Pomfret that requires advance booking to eat, but you can go for a tasting without a booking; the other is The Vineyard at Hillyland in Scotland, which doesn't need an appointment, but doesn't have food. Some others are: Lebanon Green Vineyards and Mulberry Vineyard.

The nearby towns of Putnam, Woodstock and Brimfield (a little further away) are all well-known for their antique stores and restaurants. And for those interested there are yard and church sales throughout the warmer months.

The property is 50 minutes from the CT coast with its beautiful beaches, seafood restaurants, sailing adventures, fishing and shopping. It’s a very easy day-trip on Route 395. Mystic, Stonington and Groton Long Point are just a few of the intriguing, seaside towns famous for sailing, fishing and, in the past, whaling. The Mystic Seaport is a wonderful museum full of maritime and historical information, with tours of refurbished boats and historical architecture. Mystic Aquarium is a unique aquarium experience with events and programs.

CTs' many waterways and rivers were used in the past to power mills, and the area was one of the worlds' biggest producers of threads and fabrics. Many mill towns (some renovated, others abandoned) give a glimpse into the intriguing and vibrant industries that were once there. Norwich, Willimantic and Chester are all close by and have fascinating museums and architecture that are good examples of that period.)

The Mohegan Sun casino is about 45 minutes away which has world class concerts, shows and restaurants, all year round. The Pequot Museum is a quaint place to visit.

There are many things to do in the area, but its greatest asset is the quiet and peaceful mingling with nature that it offers. You truly enter a past world and can escape from a hectic modern life.
