The SpaceBeautiful, spacious 2-bd apartment in a traditional 1930s New England converted barn with many amenities. Situated on a gorgeous 1.5 acre property, minutes to beaches, Yale and downtown New Haven restaurants, shops and theaters. Perfect for weekend get-aways or long-term stays!
Apartment has exposed beams, hardwood floors, 2 light-filled bedrooms (1 full size bed, 1 queen size bed), study/den, living and dining room, large kitchen with microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher. Washer/ dryer, wireless internet included.
My home is also on the property, across the garden. The grounds (including four weeping cherry trees!) are lovely - perfect for summer picnics and bbq's. A family of deer visit the garden often, as well as rabbits, chipmunks and other garden critters!
We are only a 15 minute drive to Yale University, and to the theaters, restaurants, and shops of downtown New Haven. There are several beautiful beaches nearby, and tennis courts, local parks and hiking trails within walking distance of the property. It is the country though, so you do need a car to get around :-) There's ample parking and easy access to I-95, the Merritt Parkway, and MetroNorth train stations.
You will have your own key and complete access to the barn apartment while you visit.
Woodbridge is a lovely and quiet country town with stone walls and historic buildings tucked into a corner adjacent to New Haven and within minutes to anything you might need. Guest AccessGuests have full private access to the barn apartment and the beautiful grounds. Interaction with GuestsI really enjoy meeting my guests, but I respect their need for privacy, too. I follow my guests in determining the amount of interaction they want. I'm available for anything guests may need or for providing directions to local shops, restaurants, etc. The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is a peaceful country setting with stone walls and quaint beautiful houses. It's lovely to walk past the gorgeous gardens and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. It's hard to believe you're only minutes to the great bars, restaurants, shops and theaters of New Haven. Beaches, movie houses and anything else you might want are only minutes away. A wonderful and popular brunch spot is Claire's, 10 minutes from the barn. Pepe's Pizza in New Haven is famous for its wood fired pizza oven and delicious pizza! There are numerous excellent restaurants in the area, including Indian, Middle Eastern, Chinese, and Kosher. The well known Long Warf Theater, which brings talented actors and excellent productions, is also situated in New Haven, as are several art and history museums. There is no shortage of things to see and do in the vicinity. But it's always nice to come back to the peace and quiet of the barn! Getting AroundThis is country life, so you do need a car. Car rentals are plentiful and taxis are also available. Parking is included and is located next to the barn. Metro-North train and bus station is a 15 minute drive, so a day trip to New York City is also easy! Other Things to NoteCheck-in time is 3:00PM, unless otherwise arranged.
Check-out time is before 12:00 noon, unless otherwise arranged.
