The SpaceWe are providing your choice of three bedrooms available: one with a queen size bed, one with a standard bed and one with a single with a full bath. In addition on the 3rd floor there is another full bath with soaking tub and a large media/family room with a large flat screen TV, an L shaped deep sofa (great for falling asleep in front of the TV) and a large library of movies for all ages. Deep, wide windows bathe the 3rd floor TV room on two sides while providing a view of the grounds and pond. The covered porch, overlooking the gardens, is perfect for morning coffe and evening cocktails. A cacophony of bird songs will entertain you in the morning and the frogs will harmonize with the hoot owls at night.
If you're a couple with a child you may use the single room in addition to the other bedroom for an extra charge of $25 a night. Guest AccessThe guests will have access to the second and third floor, two full baths, the grounds, porch, patio and pond. Although there are no kitchen privleges, (the refrigerator is yours to use) a continental breakfast will be served and prepared to your dietary specifications. Interaction with GuestsI tend to be an Italian mother when it comes to servicing your needs but I respect the value of letting everyone do their own thing with privacy. We're there with any questions or concerns but won't hover.

All one has to do is walk out my door or bike ride about to experience quintessential, classic country Connecticut. Getting AroundFor a fee, I am available to pick you up from Wingdale or Brewster on the Harlem Valley train out of Grand Central. I can also drive you to the Enterprise car rental for a much more reasonable rate and more availablity than there is in NYC.
I know this county quite well, having lived here for more than 30 years and selling real estate. Whatever your preferences and interests, I have much insight and guidence for you. Other Things to NoteNo matter what the season, there is always beauty and interesting things to do here. Please let me know what your interests are (even if it's chilling out in undisturbed peace and quiet) and we will guide and provide for you accordingly.
We have two friendly, non territorial, peaceful dogs who love the company of other dogs and children. If you chose to bring your dog please note that the dog will have to be confined to a crate or a room when you're not here since the property is not fenced.
A fee of $35 for two days will be charged for your dog.
