The space

Our guesthouse is on the Connecticut River in the treasured small town of Chester, half-way between New York and Boston – a little over two hours from each city and 45 minutes from New Haven and Hartford.
The cottage features a wide porch, private front yard overlooking the river; a living room with a couch that pulls out to sleeps two comfortably, a dining area and kitchen at one end with a dishwasher. There's a bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a good-sized bathroom with tub and shower.
The house, on our four-acre property, is private and quiet and about two miles from the center of the village which is well-appointed with wonderful restaurants, a professional theater, galleries and one-of-a-kind shops. There is endless hiking and kayaking possibilities with a boat launch ramp adjacent to the property. Theater, music and a variety of activities and things to do are all close by.
The cottage is $130 a night; $700 a week or $2000 a month. During January and February, 2018, the price is $110 a night; $660 a week and $1700 a month.
We’d love to have you stay.

I helped book this house for my parents as they were visiting me for my graduation. My parents were very pleased with their stay. The surroundings are quite beautiful and quiet. The house was cosy and clean with everything that you might need for a comfortable stay.
