Follow the edges of the forest to find eighteen completely unique cottages and a suite that guests can opt to stay in. While all cottages are nestled within woodlands and meadows, each one has a different story to tell. After all, these cottages have been individually designed by fifteen different architects.
Artist: An entire Bungalow of charming arts and crafts contrasting the Connecticut woods and meadows. It has three airy rooms, all connected with arched doorways, and an area of 890 sq. ft. that comes with a wood burning fireplace, a Jacuzzi, and a steam shower.
Beaver Lodge: A two-story cottage made of wood and stone built beside Beaver Pond. The cottage is all made of interlocking sticks with a master bed, a spiral staircase, and a table for two. It has an area of 1,250 sq. ft. with a wood burning fireplace, steam shower, and waterfall Jacuzzi.
Camping: An indoor campsite that has a tented king sized bed. It has an arched ceiling that mimics the sky, such that it’s blue during the day and starry at night. It’s 950 sq. ft. and has an inside/outside wood burning fireplace, a steam shower, and a Jacuzzi tub that looks and feels like a hot spring. This accommodation is also handicap friendly.
Charter Oak: This one is for honeymooners – a 1,300 sq. ft. retreat that takes the form of a very spacious silo or barn structure, built around a gigantic oak. It feels like a tavern inside, complete with a wood burning fireplace, steam shower, and waterfall Jacuzzi. In the living area is a leather sleeper sofa and a wet bar. Going up the stairs will lead to a king sized bed and another fireplace.
Connecticut Yankee: Using Twain’s classic as an inspiration, this cottage has a New England clapboard theme on the outside and it is filled with rich fabrics, stunning antiques, and a herringbone fireplace that makes it feel like a king’s chamber on the inside. The bathroom has slabs of rock that make the surroundings of the bathtub look like Stonehenge. This 950 sq. ft. royal domain also has a Jacuzzi and steam shower, and is dog friendly.
Golf: As the name suggests, this 900 sq. ft. distinctive clubhouse is the golf lover’s choice. It’s got a great view overlooking the meadows, lush carpets of green that complement the living room’s wood burning fireplace and a bathroom with a steam shower and Jacuzzi.
Greenhouse: A cottage that’s great for all seasons, this 1,050 sq. ft. cottage makes the summertime or winter feel more amazing to be in. There’s wicker furniture in the living room where the fireplace is, and going through the glass doors will lead to the patio which in turn leads to the forest. The cosy bedroom also has a fireplace of its own.
