Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • It doesn't get any prettier than this traditional Connecticut homestead, a classic white post-and-beam farmhouse overlooking picture-perfect flower and vegetable gardens.
  • The home's surrounding fifteen acres feature an apple orchard, rustic stacked stone walls, and rolling green fields dotted with ancient shade trees.
  • You have the option to rent accommodations in the main house, with its six plush bedrooms and gourmet kitchen, and the property is also available for rehearsal dinners and morning-after brunches.
