Our place is close to the University of Connecticut (10 minutes). You’ll love our place because of its historic flavor, its quiet country atmosphere, yet its proximity to culture and fine dining. Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families. This is a welcoming space; we celebrate diversity and ask only that visitors be respectful of the house rules. We are open to longer term stays into the week - please message us about your needs.
Our home is on the National Register of Historic Places, but it's also still a small, comfortable working farm, albeit a work in progress. There are free range chickens, two cats, and a blind dog named Phineas, all of whom are very friendly. Well...the chickens might run from you ;) UConn is 10 minutes away, Mohegan Sun Casino is 45 minutes away, Coventry Farmer's Market is right in town every Sunday from 11-2, or Hartford is 30 minutes away.

The bedroom comes with use of a parlor where you're welcome to sit, read, have coffee, or watch Main Street go by. The bathroom is private. For those who like a front row seat, there is a very comfortable front porch. Those who like more privacy might prefer the terrace in the back yard with the patio table, under one of the largest dogwood trees you'll ever see.

Don't let the driveway intimidate you. It looks long and scary, but there is lots of room at the top to park and turn around. Drive slowly; the chickens do cross the driveway to get to the other side.....over and over.
Please don't smoke in the house. Other than that, we just expect everyone to follow the Golden Rule: treat everyone as you wish to be treated.
Please be aware that we have dogs and cats. They are not allowed in the guest room but it is impossible to avoid them completely if you are allergic or otherwise prefer not to encounter them. If you do enjoy their company, they are very friendly and enjoy the attention.
Weekends we are likely available and certainly reachable by phone.
My wife describes me as a master of the lost arts - a Renaissance Man. She thinks it's amazing that I can walk through the junkyard picking up parts and come home to build a chicken coop door with a photosensitive eye that opens at dawn and closes at dusk. I think that Dizzy Dean said it best: it ain't bragging if you can really do it. I don't brag, and she wrote this.
My style is to make you comfortable, and let you talk first.
