About this property

1905 Remodeled New England Cape Quintessential Connecticut Countryside Getaway

Family-friendly holiday home in Brookfield
This beautiful 1905 New England Cape, that was once a local bakery, is the perfect location to enjoy Connecticut, fun local excursions and activities. Hiking trails are around the corner and a lake surrounded by rolling, golden hills is 5 minutes down the road, perfect for kayaking. So come and relax, reconnect with nature, or both! A complimentary, chilled bottle of Prosecco will be waiting for you! This fully remodeled, light filled, 1900 house includes two working fire places, spacious living, dining, and sleeping areas, a dedicated office space, a laundry room, and a back deck. Its lay out is convenient, with two bedrooms only 3 steps up from the main floor. Two bedrooms have their own full bath and feature fresh, European style bedding. The twin beds downstairs have new green tea infused mattresses, the sheets are manufactured by women-owned businesses, and the guest toiletries are all natural and infused with essential oils. There is a guest half-bath downstairs. The fully equipped, large kitchen with spacious dining area makes it fun to cook and gather, and the private back deck and small front patio are perfect for evening cocktails! There is WiFi and a smart TV in the living room, and, just in case you want to disconnect from it all, a great selection of board games and puzzles. There is also a box with arts and crafts activities for children. Two functioning fireplaces, one in the kitchen and one in the living room, will bring a special ambiance to your evenings. To start you off, we will supply one deck box full of wood. After that, you are free to collect wood from the property yourself. The New England Cape sits on what was once a sheep farm. The family who owned the land 200 years ago held Dorset sheep, and as you explore the area, you will see street names that reflect the history of the property. The barn of the main house still has the troughs where they would feed the animals. At one point, the guest house was a local bakery, and an oven in the basement is witness to that venture. The entire property is surrounded by a wooded Land Reserve, ensuring privacy. We have deer and wild turkeys that regularly visit our grounds, a residential wood chuck we call Howard, and from time to time a red fox will cross the property. The Center of Brookfield and neighboring towns with their restaurants are between a 5 and 15 minute drive away. Kent Falls, the towns of Kent and Litchfield, at the foot of the Berkshire mountains, are a scenic 40-50 minutes away. Other charming towns close to us (within a 15 mile radius) include Newtown, Bridgewater, Roxbury, and New Milford. There are many restaurants, shops, and art galleries around. The Elephant's Trunk, the famous flea market held on Sundays in New Milford, is a 10 minute drive away. We live in the main house on the property, and we consider ourselves low key. While we'll be happy to guide you to our favorite local eateries, the hiking trails, access to the lake, and other local activities, we will leave you as much privacy as you desire. We are multi-lingual, and apart from English, speak Dutch, French, Swedish, and German.

    What a cozy, beautiful setting for our little reunion. The fireplaces were so great. We were comfortable and had everything we needed and more. Loved the essential oils that were available for us to enjoy. Definitely would love to revisit this special place. Thank you!
