2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
Chester, Connecticut
The Connecticut Retreat was built by a pair of New Yorkers who wanted a 'spiritual and artist retreat' convenient to NYC but far from the fast-paced lifestyle of the City. The Retreat is situated on 10 wooded acres surrounded by 1000 acres of forest. Take a short walk through the woods to the swimming lake with a sandy beach. The compound is located on an ancient country road and is a short hike to pristine lakes and miles of trails.

The Connecticut Retreat is 100 miles from New York City or Boston, 15 minutes away to Metro-North trains in Clinton and 20 minutes to the Amtrak station in Old Saybrook, 40 minutes to Metro North in New Haven or Bradley Airport in Hartford.

The Tree House

We were in a bit of a lurch on a family getaway and needed a house due to our children (ages 3, 4 & 16) and not partial to hotels for the length of time we were there (10 nights). We were greeted by Paul the night of our arrival and toured the home and it was exactly as pictured....

Spending a long weekend at the CT Retreat created a unique opportunity to relax with nature. The beauty that surrounded us at the treehouse was breathtaking. There was an artistic surprise around every corner - architecture, sculpture, antiques, books, music and art. The sounds of nature - the creek, the birds, and the wind through the trees were something man...
