I lived in CT for thirty years but returned to Salt Lake City in 2000. During this time I have missed the springtime peepers, the wildflowers that predominate in bog and meadow, the quaint villages, shops, and covered bridges. I decided that I would re-establish a foothold in Litchfield County to be closer to my two daughters and son-in-law, who live on the east coast. We purchased this quintessential New England farmhouse so that we could be together periodically. The house is a wonderfully, intimate house with both old and new--well preserved but modernized and updated.
Litchfield county is the loveliest part of Connecticut with its broad fields, meadows, and rolling ridges. It has fine stone walls, perfectly-sized towns, and very interesting diverse locals which includes artists, romantics, professionals, and backwoods bubbas. This region has great restaurants, cute taverns, museums, art galleries, and the most amazing inviting winding roads. Yet, it is so close to New York or Boston.

Left on Jul 07, 2014 for a stay in July 2014
We arrived all type A with many plans to hike and swim, ended up enjoying the comfort of the house, cooking, hanging out together. Switching from indoor seating for outdoor, enjoying cooking together in the very well equipped kitchen, and eating. We did do some biking and swimming, after all. We'll surely be back again
