You will pay me directly, so that there are no fees that go to VRBO or HomeAway. This saves you about 10% in booking costs.

Rhubarb Hill is a woodsy retreat in beautiful Litchfield County. Relax in a charming farmhouse that is spacious and great for entertaining! The dining room, once a rustic keeping room, has a stone wall, fireplace, and stenciled hardwood floors. You will feel as if you stepped back in time. The living room is the perfect size for intimate conversations or larger gatherings. Wide hardwood floors predominate throughout this comfortable home. Cook up a great meal or snack in the well-equipped kitchen with a professional Garland gas stove, microwave, two dish washers and other culinary gadgets. There is a full basement with washer/dryer/ironing board.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and two baths. The master bath is spectacular with a Jacuzzi, European-style shower, twin sinks, and great views of mature hardwoods and old stone walls. Relax in a queen size four poster bed while looking out over the expansive yard. There is a huge walk-in closet with ample storage. The second bedroom has a shaker-like feel with its queen bed and two closets. The third bedroom is small with two twin beds, great for kids. The second upstairs bathroom has a vintage feel with full tub/shower and sink.

The area:

House is walking distance to downtown New Preston and Lake Waramaug beach with boat rentals, swimming, rope swings and kayaking

Near the Steep Rock Land Trust with great hiking trails

Dine locally at the Historic Mayflower Inn as well as several wonderful local taverns and restaurants all within walking distance

Nestled between two villages New Preston and Washington Depot (home of the Gunnery School and the inspiration for Gilmore Girls)

15 minutes to Litchfield Connecticut with the best antiquing in Connecticut

$250 per night with a two-night minimum and $125 cleaning fee.

$1500 weekly rate

$4500 June

$5000 July

$5000 August

During the winter months, mid-October until mid March, I seek long-term rentals and only rent by the month.
