The setting of this place is beautiful - tucked away in a mature forest yet a close drive from New Haven. Sleeping Giant State Park is a short hike away (less than a mile) and an amazing spot for hiking or trail running. The studio is cute and we appreciated having the use of th…

Great that you were able to visit during the perfect season. Forest in full fall colors, deer browsing about the lower meadow and gravel road just resurfaced for a smooth ride to the top of the hill. Looking forward to your return for more spectacular times at our special retreat.

Fun for the whole family. Glad the grand parents enjoyed the warmth by the Tulikivi wood burning stove and the little one enjoyed playing with our Brio wooden train set. Hope to see you all back before the next birthday celebration. Cheers.

Liisa and Doug have the most beautiful, hidden, and magical forest cabin in Hamden, CT. My family and I enjoyed Labor Day weekend on their property and we were blown away by the many treasures that the house and several acres have to offer. Our dog, Jazzy, spent most of her time …

Sondra, so great to have great weather for the wedding weekend. We always happy to see guests enjoy our home and all that we love living in the forest. Special to discover the Hidden Cabin in the woods and have your four legged friend run free in the meadow. The bonfire kumbaya moments will now be forever memories. Next visit, we will guide you to our “Indian Camp” and show where to catch Salamanders in the deep ravine below. Happy to host you guys and will certainly plan another Welcome Back to Nature experience.

Rumi and Family, Thank you for staying in our forest retreat. Enjoyed meeting you and the grandparents and learning about life in Japan. Looking forward to the next visit to your son at Yale.
