  • Jacuzzi/Hot Tub
  • Swimming pool
This charming getaway is located on the top floor of a historic mansion in Litchfield County, Connecticut. The estate is primarily vintage in its decor, but this particular suite offers the "best of both worlds" experience. Modern decor is spread across the king-size bed, lounging area, and dining area. The windows offer views of the grounds including the pool, gardens, and Connecticut trees. The ensuite bathroom contains a toilet, sink, and bathtub/shower combination. Linens and towels are kindly provided. Other amenities include Wi-Fi, a flatscreen television, and air conditioning.

The mansion has a lot of shared space and consists of multiple parts, and guests are encouraged to explore. A dining table sits underneath a stunning crystal chandelier on one end, and a library, bar, game room, and sun room exist on the other end. There is even a baby grand piano nestled next to a large fireplace. Columns stretch to the high ceilings and warm chestnut wood spreads across the walls. The structure and decor are considered Spanish-Mediterranean Revival style, making it feel as though guests are standing inside a piece of history.

Outside, there is plenty for guests to do. A stone pool house containing a pool offers guests the perfect place to cool down on hot summer days, and the beautiful gardens are a great place to enjoy an afternoon stroll. There are tennis courts for those guests with a bit more energy, and have seen many friendly doubles tournaments over the years. Those guests with cars will be delighted to find that there are many state forests within easy driving distance, including the gorgeous Enders State Forest.
