About the neighborhood
Simply Spectacular The Hartford Courant calls Knowles Landing “The Jewel of the Connecticut River.” This 1886 maritime historic landmark offers luxury, beauty, history and adventure. My guests love the convenience of nearby shopping, restaurants, theatre, museums, recreation and being midway between Boston and NYC - about a 2-hour drive in either direction. The Connecticut River, the fish jumping, eagles soaring, the owl hooting at night, kayaking across the River behind Dart Island to watch the painted turtles and blue heron...the beauty and colorful history of this village -- it's all magic!
