“A beautiful, tranquil place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The Connecticut Retreat is a wonderful place to rest and gather your thoughts. We went in late September and the falling leaves sounded like a gentle rain. Everything you need is thoughtfully provided (except food, of course) and the location is perfect -- locations in Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New York City are all day trips. The owners were lovely people, and made a point to stay out of their way so we could unwind.

We heard you and have discarded the futon and replaced it with a comfortable full size cushion suitable for sleeping, if desired. Thanks for the feedback.
