Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This beautiful little hideaway is the perfect spot to explore northwestern Connecticut and the Berkshires. The carriage-house is located on a quiet dead-end road, is very private with a large deck overlooking horse pasture, and is newly renovated inside with hardwood floors and quartz countertops. Walk to the Appalachian Trail (1 mile to the trail head), the Great Falls (1 mile), Lime Rock Park (5-10 min drive), or cruise up historic and picturesque Route 7 to Great Barrington, MA (25 min).

The space
The carriage house is completely detached and self-contained from any other building (the only other building is the main house that is rented separately and also located on the property). Inside, there's a good sized bedroom with a cedar-lined closet and a comfy, clean, queen size bed overlooking the pasture. We use only quality linens (100% cotton, high thread count) and new, soft, plush comforters with a silky-cotton duvet cover. There is also room for an air mattress if you have children or extra guests traveling with you. Please let us know in advance if you'll need the air mattress/ extra linens, since we don't keep those on hand unless requested.

The kitchen and living area are all open, with a TV and Pottery Barn leather couch with soft throw blankets, a small kitchen table, and an office area. The bathroom has a tiled shower and a stackable LG washer/dryer. The deck is the highlight of the apartment: eat outside al fresco with no neighbors in sight (you'll see the main house on your walk out to the back deck, but then it's completely private). There is a small fire pit available for your use in the pasture behind the deck (the pasture is unused; Mr. Horse, aka Flight, uses the front pasture).

Where you’ll be

Canaan, Connecticut, United States

The carriage house is on a quiet, dead-end road: perfect for walking, biking, exploring the Great Falls, or just catching up on some much needed rest. You can walk 'down town' (1 mile) to the center of Falls Village where you can enjoy dinner or a drink on the porch of the Falls Village Inn or stroll around the sleepy, picturesque main street.

Also in Falls Village is Music Mountain, famous for its summer concert series.

Further afoot, you'll find Lime Rock Park and Race Track; Great Barrington, MA (with ski slopes, restaurants, bars, shopping, museums, concerts); and numerous other New England towns worth exploring.
