Location

Norwich, Connecticut, United States

We live at the end of a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential neighborhood that Nancy's father and grandfather built in the late 1950's. The octagon is nestled on 100 acres of forest with a brook running along one side of the property.

Bert and I love hiking and being out in nature. We love meeting new people, making them comfortable, and want them to experience what we get to enjoy here everyday. We hope you will fall in love with our quiet corner of Connecticut with it’s rolling forested hills, beautiful ocean and lakes, iconic stone walls and rich colonial history. Bert has worked as a CFO and is currently a financial counselor. I am a professional harpist, potter, weaver and forager. I have a small pottery shop where you can check out items for sale including hand woven scarves, and wooden earrings. I also make shagbark hickory syrup which has a flavor all it’s own! It is great on pancakes, Ice cream or in cocktails. If you would like to taste some just let me know! I also make autumn berry syrup on occasion. We have some syrups for sale. There are 2 1/2 miles of trails on this hundred acre property that has been in my family for three generations. I have put up many trail cameras to document the wildlife which is quite abundant and have learned so much about the local flora and fauna over the years. I continue to learn everyday! We hope you will enjoy your stay at any of our homes and find the forest, brook and wildlife as magical and beautiful as we do! All the best, Nancy and Bert.
