Escape to the Litchfield County. Our spacious room with a full bed and attached bathroom, overlooks the beautiful Farmington River. Feast on our organic breakfast. Spend the day enjoying our great outdoors or just relaxing!

The space

This space is easily accessed via our front door, up a set of stairs. It is a great additional room for families that have booked our first room and need more space.

Interaction with guests

We are readily available on the property and also have cell phone access that we will provide to you, upon booking.

Other things to note

Our area is one of the most scenic in New England. Our home sits directly on the Greenwoods Pool fly fishing area of the Farmington River. It has easy access to People's State Forest for hiking. We have 3 bikes available for your use while you are here. In the winter months, we have snow-shoes available and we are 5 minutes from Ski Sundown and 45 minutes from Butternut in Great Barrington, Ma. We have some of the finest dining in New England with a wide range of farm to table restaurants in Litchfield County.
For an additional charge, we have a massage therapist and yoga instructor affiliated with my business, Passiflora, a local organic café in New Hartford, Ct, who can be booked for private sessions. Our chef can provide a customized cooking class, as well, with an eye to vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and plant-based eating. You can feast on this class as your dinner while on our property.

We had a lovely stay with Karen in her beautiful home. The healthy breakfast served set us for the day. Karen and Dave had great suggestions for eating out and places to visit. We had lunch at Karen's organic and vegan cafe Passiflora enjoyed the atmosphere and the food .

Our room at Karen's fit our needs perfectly. There was a bathroom attached and a gorgeous view of the river. Karen provided coffee and advice on local eateries. Her place is in a great location, easy to get to and yet also off the road a little.

Heaven on earth. Karen and Dave are two of the kindest, most considerate people I have met. They went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed. I needed sleep and slept 10-14 hour nights during my 10 day stay at this oasis. Karen brought fresh flowers into my room. Dave and Karen brought in a new mini refrigerator loaded with water, granola and almond milk and a Keurig with a variety of teas and coffees. Dave put a set of chaises at the foot of the river surrounded by yellow daffodils! I hope to return one day to what I now call Paradise. Thank you Karen and Dave - forever grateful.

This was our second stay with Karen and her family in their spacious, beautiful home! We are grateful that she could accommodate us again, this time with two rooms, during what was fast becoming a hectic pre-holiday time.

Karen's house is breathtakingly beautiful. Everything in my room was so very perfect (loved the mini fridge and reading area), accompanied by beautiful views, a very comfortable bed, and spacious bathroom. I really appreciated her rapid responsiveness when I booked, and it was wonderful to chat with her (such an amazing person!) while eating one of the best muffins I have ever had. Thanks to Karen's great recommendation, I spent a pleasant morning in the People's State Forest a short driving distance away from her house. I *highly* recommend staying at her AirBnB, and would be lucky to return one day. Many thanks!!
