The space

A quiet retreat near open fields with grazing sheep and forested hillsides, our house is only two hours from New York City, but feels like it’s in the middle of Vermont. Scenic drives, cool shops and galleries, and delightful restaurants are scattered throughout the quaint, historic towns of the Litchfield Hills.

We have a large, rambling, country colonial in rural NW Connecticut, close to hiking, biking, swimming, boating and skiing. The house is surrounded by Nature Conservancy land and minutes from Mohawk State Forest and Ski Area, the Housatonic River, and abundant lakes, back roads and nature preserves. Area private schools--Hotchkiss, Kent, Salisbury, Marvelwood and Indian Mountain—are within a 20 minute drive. Great Barrington, Massachusetts and Berkshire attractions are 35-45 minutes away.

We can direct you to great spots for plein air painting, or offer you a quiet space to work. Hiking, biking, paddling and skiing (x-c and downhill) information is also available.

Cozy bedrooms are in their own wing with two separate staircases. There is one bedroom with a queen bed, one with a double bed, and one with two single beds. Two bathrooms are adjacent to the bedrooms. This listing is for the twin bedroom with an adjacent bathroom. There are two other bedrooms available with separate listings. Families of 4-7 people can be comfortably accomodated. A single size airbed is available for a child in their parents' room.

Guest access

Guests have use of a spacious living room, dining room and free WiFi in all rooms. Coffee, tea and simple breakfast items are available. You are welcome to bring your own food and keep it in the refrigerator, and to prepare breakfast. Many wonderful markets and restaurants are a short drive away. Laundry facilities and greater kitchen access are available for longer stays and if pre-arranged.

Interaction with guests

I will be present during guest stays, and enjoy conversing with guests. If you prefer to be alone, there are several rooms to escape to, and a screen porch in summer.

Perfect accommodations for two friends meeting up to hike sections of the Appalachian Trail. Nothing fancy, but clean, private and amazing location. The twin beds and private bath were super comfortable for a great night sleep after a long day on the trails. Super great location in the middle of her western Connecticut. And amazing tips on food and hiking trail recommendations. We’d definitely stay here again if we came back to this area.

My friend and I stayed in Amelia's twin bed room this weekend for the Gilmore Girls Festival in Kent. Amelia's house is beautiful and located on a secluded wooded road about 20 minutes from Kent. The room was cozy and clean with a cute private bathroom. Amelia was lovely and very accommodating - because the festival ran roughly from 9-9 each day, she allowed us to check in earlier. Overall, great stay and great price!

Host was super nice and accommodating. The house is off the beaten path but that is what we wanted. We had a change in plans so we did not get to stay as long as we would have liked. In at 4p and off to the AT at 7a. The house was quiet at that hour. I highly recommend this for a stay.

This is a lovely secluded place to stay, and Amelia is helpful and willing to share her home and the area with visitors. There is a new restaurant in West Cornwall that looks promising for people staying here and it's right next to a great covered bridge. Amelia's is off the beaten track, and delightful.

Amelia is a gracious host with a beautiful, quiet spot in the country of Connecticut. She was totally on top of communication and very personable.

Amelia is a wonderful host. We enjoyed our brief stay as we were in the area for a wedding in nearby Kent. Communication was excellent. The room was perfect-- so peaceful and quiet. Amelia brought us a tray with coffee in the am and encouraged me to pick some apples from her trees. Thank so much. We hope to visit again.

I'm a visual artist, and have taught art, worked as a graphic designer and a librarian. Travel and exploring art and nature fuel my creative energy, and I'm happiest when I'm working in my studio, listening to a good audio book. I enjoy meeting new people and sharing info on the many outdoor and cultural offerings in this region.
