Our spacious home is a perfect weekend retreat. Choose between 2 private guest rooms: 3rd floor with twin beds and 360° views, or 2nd floor queen bedroom. Relax in our outdoor hot tub. Enjoy Sunday flea market, antiques, hikes, and local vineyards.

The space

We built much of this home ourselves, and the space reflects our family's personality. It's relaxed, informal, idea-driven, and welcoming. We have several multi-use rooms, a very spacious kitchen, a large deck and terrace, and ample parking. We live in a quiet neighborhood about 75 minutes north of NYC in an area of CT great for antiquing, wine, hiking, and leaf-peeping.

Guest access

Choice of two guest rooms, one with double bed, one with two singles. Private bath (w tub & shower). Full kitchen, deck, outdoor shower, fire pit, fireplace, hot tub. We have lots of windows and shade—but WE HAVE NO AIR CONDITIONING.

Interaction with guests

We are a typical, busy family. We're happy to play host or to leave people alone — depending on what you're looking for. We enjoy the chance to make big dinners and chat over wine, especially in front of a warm fire.

Other things to note

We have 2 cats, 4 fish, and a guinea pig. We have lots of windows and shade—but WE HAVE NO AIR CONDITIONING.

Had a wonderful stay at Wendy and Chris' home. Their entire family was so welcoming and fun to be around, our only regret was not staying longer with them!

Wendy and Chris's house is a perfect getaway from the messy and noisy daily life I have. We were lucky that it was snowing the day we arrived, which only made their home and the surrounding area even more magical. They were incredibly generous and hospitable hosts who not only gave us great local tips for restaurants and drinks, but also went out of their way to make sure we had the best experience possible, including setting up the outdoor hot tub without us asking! And leaving us a bottle of prosecco to enjoy. It was extremely classy and sweet of them, and lying in the hot tub with gentle snow falling on you is an experience I will cherish. Thanks for allowing that to happen. The top level of the house is also a breathtakingly gorgeous room with sweeping views of the terrain. We hung out there tucked away in the dark as well as soaked in the lush sunlight the next morning. Simply amazing. Highly recommend this! Thank you Wendy and Chris.

Our second time staying here! Lovingly designed and decorated house with the people inside as interesting as the environment! A wonderful place for a Thanksgiving weekend-with our family who live right up the street. Off the beaten track but not secluded. Lots of low-key things to do around the area. Highly and doubly recommend.

Wendy and Chris were very welcoming! Love their place, our room was very clean and comfortable. They were flexible on check-in / check-out time and they treat us like family! Wendy made an outstanding breakfast and their suggestions on things to do in town were awesome! Would definitely return and / or recommend this place to a friend! Muchas gracias!

Wendy and Chris' warmth and creativity is reflected in the incredible home they have built! Everywhere you look is a reminder of their artistic spirit, and the resulting space is both comfortable and inviting. They were wonderful hosts and quick to make us feel right at home. Coffee in the third floor sun room is a must!
