The dining room is done in country French furniture with 6 chairs and one leaf in the table. The hutch and buffet has an assortment of serving pieces, an assortment of linen, silver flatware and various serving. There are folding chairs stored in the porch closet to add additional dining room seating. In the garage is a grill for guests use that can be wheeled to the driveway along with tables and additional chairs.

The family room has 2 large comfortable sofas with a raised hearth fireplace. The TV gives you a choice of Amazon or Netflix's, & HBO

The drapes in family room should be closed at night to give you privacy. You can also close the drapes on the porch to keep heat in.

We provide a key to the garage that opens the left side. To lock it you have to move the door up and down a little bit. The other key opens the side porch. If it is snowy and wet you should use the garage entrance. There is no walkway yet to the porch door.

The house has 4 bedrooms, there is the library that has 2 full beds, the living room has a sleeper sofa and the family room has 2 couches. This house can easily sleep 16 and more with air mattresses.

The house is suited to host a family events. Please contact me so I can quote you on having a group up to 50 at the house. If a group of 14 books the property for a period there likely would be no additional charge.

The property is on 33 acres and there is an unimproved road that is adjacent to the property on route 132. This is an excellent place to walk or ride a bike.

The Zasada family has lived in the Watertown area since 1976. I'm a Parsons from the Farmington Valley area of Connecticut. Paul and I purchased the Heminway property in 1989 from the original owners that had a silk thread mill in town. It's been a wonderful place to bring up our 2 girls Genevieve and Madeline. We love to give parties, spend time with friends and share interesting food. Inviting travelers from around the world to our properties is the perfect fit for us. We love to travel and we spend part of the year in Honolulu.
