Cottage next to a pond! If you like to be nestled in a fully-equipped cottage with a beautiful view.... this is your place! Nick and Polly rent out half of their cottage for guests.... so you will be their only guests! Privacy is utmost. Being a history buff, it was a fascinating place to stay... Polly's family bought the farm from the Indians in 1707 and it has been in the family ever since. In the early 1900's it was a summer retreat for artists, writers and Suffragettes. Nick and Polly are in the process of renovating the main homestead as a B&B - make sure to ask for a tour of the old house from Nick. The location is perfect for touring the "Quiet Corner" of CT, and antiquing is quite nice in the nearby town of Putnam. Also make sure to try the local Pomfret wines and have dinner at The Harvest, then back to the cottage for ice cream by the fireplace!
