It is so cute. Nice furnishings and decor. Very clean. Our kids loved exploring the woods nearby and cooking out doors. Plus it is in one of my favorite areas Litchfield Co! The town of Sharon is charming and there is the nearby Mudge Pond for swimming. The owners are nice and easy to deal with.

This is a great retreat from the city. We drove up and it only took us a little over two hours. The house is perfect for us (two adults and two small boys). There is a working fireplace inside the house and the owners were kind enough to supply us with wood!
Our boys loved running through the open fields and meadows. They saw a pair of deer in the morning! It was really a perfect place for us!

We live in NYC, so this was a super retreat for us! We rented here a few times already and I plan to do so again.
It's a quick drive from Manhattan (around 2 hours) and once we get there the house is welcoming and has everything we need.
We love taking hikes and we were able to walk to Mudge Pond! Watching the sunset on the vast private property was a real plus. We also get to grill outdoors which is a real plus!
The cottage was super clean and we found everything we needed. The owners were accommodating and friendly!
