A beautifully serene guest cottage at the historic Stephen Smith House. Located in the gorgeous Connecticut River Valley, in the town of Haddam, the cottage is a private relaxing getaway just 2 hours from NYC and Boston. The special home and bucolic property is situated above a lovely brook, surrounded by mountain views, waterfalls, stone walls, gunite pool, magical gardens and 175 acres of private hiking trails.

The space
The setting is above a lovely brook with views of woods, acres of ferns, stone walls, and hiking trails. The recently renovated cottage features comfortable furniture, soft lighting and accessories in natural materials, textures and muted tones that compliment the serene environment. The large sunroom overlooks 175 acres of private land trust and looks out over upper yard and pool area.
