A Georgian colonial in the heart of Norwich. Sleeps 15 comfortably with room for more. Minutes from both casinos.
“Such a beautiful and spacious house! Our guests loved having access to the beautiful outdoor area and game room. We had 10 guests and could have easily fit more. There were 2 different dining areas, as well as an outdoor patio that was great for hanging out. There was an issue with turning off then outdoor lights, and Valeria was very responsive and fixed the issue right away.”
Built in 1896, this 14 room colonial has everything you'll need. From the large, updated, gourmet kitchen with marble counter tops to the grand front rooms, this house caters all of your entertaining desires. The grand hallways lead you to the second floor where you will be amazed by the four oversized bedrooms, all with fireplaces and two smaller rooms perfect for the kids. This house is a must pick if you are looking for a large rental home in Southeastern Connecticut.
“This place is absolutely outstanding. This incredibly open and large house is filled with beautiful furniture. While it has many wonderful vintage aspects to it, the kitchen and other amenities are quite modern. We especially loved the hot tub and pool! Overall this house is very spacious and can give that "home" or elegant feel to accommodate a large group.”
Water Forest retreat is a very private 144 ft.² electrified and heated cedar octagon next to a brook on 100 acres of forest with a pond, waterfall, marsh and hiking trails. Cozy up in this quiet comfortable space while listening to Goldmine brook while you sleep. Fire pit, heated outhouse with composting toilet, outdoor dining area, brook and trail head are just steps away. We also have a TREE HOUSE and HIKER’S HAVEN house by the brook.

“When it comes to a stay at the Water Forest Retreat, you can expect just that...a total retreat. From the moment Bert led us through the entrance to the woods where the Octagon house was located, we were immediately transported into another realm. The air cooled, the light dimmed, and all we could hear were birds chirping and the rushing of the stream below. the Octagon House was immaculately clean, and had the most beautiful touches from Nancy's pottery and other artwork, including a lit wooden sculpture chandelier above the bed. The panoramic view of the woods left us feeling in awe of the nature around us. It wasn't long before my husband and I decided to trek through the over 2.5 miles of scenic hiking trails on the property. Every so often, we found a cozy bench to sit on while taking in the views (of which there were many!) We couldn't wait to get a fire blazing and enjoy the serenity of the space. The entire area around the Octagon was so grounding (I actually turned my phone off for an entire day!). We cooked over the fire and eventually fell asleep to the sounds of the brook, and local wildlife, from within the comfort of our eight cozy walls. When it was time to check out, we enjoyed a lovely conversation with Bert, and picked up a gorgeous pottery mug and vase from Nancy's "Fire Witch Pottery". I came upon the Water Forest Retreat from a Facebook post, and am so grateful to have had a stay there. I hope that we make it back to the Octagon some time very soon. It was the perfect one night getaway!”
