Great check-in experience
100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

The Protz family first constructed this home in rural Connecticut after fleeing the forward march of German troops during the Second World War. Convinced that the war would soon be coming to America, Mr. Protz constructed his home to act as a sort of fortress - In today's terms we wouldn't hesitate to call him a "prepper". You'll stay in the family's lower level, which before being converted to an in-law apartment served as the family's air raid shelter.
