The SpaceCharming Dutch Colonial home surrounded by acres of farmland yet within walking distance of all amenities [restaurants, banks, supermarket, gas stations]. Yet, none are visible from the home which has views of the farm. There are often cows in the pasture, deer roam in and out of the yard at night, and yes you can hear both cicada & coyotes! Expect a quiet stay with a worldly hostess. There is a private loft over the garage a lovely bright southern exposure with a view of the rye field. The bathrooms are in the main house and would be shared. Come pick strawberries in Spring/Summer, then blueberries & your Christmas Tree in winter. I am a half hour from Yale in New Haven, an hour and a half from NY City, hour from Hartford, CT [Mark Twains home], and 3 hours from Boston, Mass. I am also a Massage Therapist trained internationally & a Reiki Energetic Healer, these services would be available to as well as guided hikes on the Blue Dot Trail. Guest AccessThe second floor of the house for showers. The first floor bathroom by the backdoor is the guests bathroom for their stay. Interaction with GuestsAs much interaction as the guest would like, from me being totally out of sight, to tea & coffee chats, to suggestions of fun things near by to do. The NeighborhoodI love that it is NOT a neighborhood. It was a private farm years ago and the original owners family lives next door & raised beef cows. He hays the fields in the fall which is great fun to watch. Getting AroundI am in walking distance of a bus route but a car is the most likely means of transportation. Other Things to NoteCharge for more than 2, $15 extra. [There's a full size futon bed in the loft as well as the queen sized bed, so it could sleep 1-4 people. The loft over the detached garage is 15 x 24 and has a frig. and a coffee maker. Not really a good place for small children, or those having trouble with stairs. More of a place for singles and couples. Massages are available at $80 an hour & Reiki sessions for $60 an hour.

The SpaceThe lodge is screened and glassed in. Think of it as a glorified tent! It can be rather creaky because it is made of recycled materials but the integrity of the structure is sound. Also please be advised that the bathroom is a few minute walk away in the woods.

Other Things to NoteWe have a children's day camp here at the farm! Every day there are kids in the forest... but you would never even know it except at drop off and pick up around 9 am and 3 pm. Also the lodge does not have a very close bathroom at the moment. The bathroom is located in the main barn is about a three 1/2 minute walk through a path in the woods. Also please be advised that while we do have ponds on the property during times of drought the water level may be too low to allow for swimming and boating!
