My family are obsessed with the Gilmore girls and booked to stay here so we could explore the area 'looking for Stars Hollow'. What we found was a charming and spacious cottage, extremely comfortable for 4 of us and boy did we maKe ourselves at home! The heating was warm and we were able to adjust it as we needed. The kitchen had everything we needed for a 5 day stay - but note there's no laundry. Debbie, the property manager welcomed us with a big smile and gave us lots of valuable information about the area like where to eat, where to stop, how to get around. The morning after we arrived, it started snowing and it didn't stop - it was so beautiful! Our young girls got to explore the expansive property, having snowball fights, making snow angels, trying to get the snow to fall off the roof of the sheds. Debbie even showed how to use the gas fire pit which we did - what to a treat to enjoy a fire in the snow, it was so lovely! Cannot recommend this property highly enough - it helped us to fall in love with Connecticut.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you had a wonderful time... When Debbie told us your girls were hoping for snow, we were delighted your wish was granted. Thank you for being great house guests, and for leaving the Guest House in wonderful condition. Please come back to CT again. Sincerely, Janet

Beautiful safe area and cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cottage. We had a problem the first night (new propane furnace smell) when we arrived at the cottage. However, Debbie the property manager immediately rectified the problem by having us stay at the studio on the grounds. The rest of our stay was in the cottage -- which was well equipped, cozy, and warm. I enjoyed walking my dog everyday on a nearby street with very little traffic and great scenery! I would recommend this place to family and friends!
