Colorful, sunlit room for woman or couple only. Cozy country cottage, extensive gardens. Share kitchen, bath and living spaces with owner and cat. Near S. Kent and Kent School, Appalachian Trail, in scenic rural Litchfield County.


People love my funny little house and I love it too. It's a 1946 lake cottage with lots of character, being lovingly renovated and with great views.
The cheerful, clean and airy guest room has views in three directions - up the mountain into my gardens, out to the lake and through an old apple tree. It is uncluttered and colorful, with a good reading lamp, computer desk and empty bureau.
The bed can function as a king-sized or as one or two singles - It has a roll-out lower trundle that can be raised to the same level as the upper mattress (and made up as one, with lovely soft sheets). Or it can be configured as two twins, either at the same level, or if one is left at the lower setting, it can be tucked away for more floor space during the day. Beds can be positioned side-by-side or rolled apart.
The bath is shared - it's a one bathroom house.
Everything here is pretty much organic/no artificial anything, so you won't be assaulted with room fresheners, scented sheets or icky chemical cleaners.

New mattress covers, pads, sheets, blankets and quilt cover the beds, which guests report are quite comfortable.
There is great cellphone service in this neighborhood - not always the case in this mountainous area.

During the week and in the off-season, one-night stays are fine. On peak-season summer and fall foliage weekends, though, advance bookings need to be at least 2 nights. For last-minute requests, if the room isn't already booked, one night might be fine - just be in touch and I'll accommodate you if the schedule allows.

Dostupno gostima

Full access to the kitchen and guests are welcome to help themselves to tea and coffee. A former sunporch across the front of the house is now a sunny winterized living room with a big couch ( a dreamy napping place), an armoire full of records and CDs and a dining/work table looking out over the lake. A big woodstove takes the chill off in winter, and open windows keep it breezy all summer. You're welcome to make yourself at home there or in the adjacent dining room. A big artist-made picnic table, bench and chairs give lots of places to enjoy the outdoors.
If you've been out on the Appalachian Trail and need to do some laundry, you're welcome to use my machines.

Interakcija s gostima

I often work at home, so some days I'll be in my office all day, some days I'll be on the run, it just depends on my schedule. I do enjoy company, especially at meal times, and have had a great time with guests who like to pitch in and do improvisational cooking together. Or if you prefer to be on your own, I'm happy to get guests situated, give directions and suggestions, and send them on their way to explore this beautiful part of the world. On weekends I'm more available. I'm always happy to give the grand tour of gardens and answer questions.

I hope that you will be comfortable and have an enjoyable stay. Please let me know if there is anything you need or if you would like restaurant, hiking or other recommendations. We have lots of open space with hiking trails of various levels of challenge, and some super restaurants that work with local farmers and foragers to provide innovative and scrumptious cuisine.

No smoking, no drugs, no parties and please, no visiting pets or unannounced visitors.
We're in the country and it is very safe here, but I still lock my doors, so please lock up doors and first floor windows when you go out, and during the heating season, turn down the heat.

If you are new to Airbnb, the idea is that I’m not renting a room, but rather sharing my home. I live and work here, and enjoy meeting new people. It's like having old friends visit, not like a hotel. You are welcome to make yourself at home in the common living areas and to use the kitchen, but please leave everything as clean and put away as you have found it. As we will be sharing a bathroom, I appreciate your tidying up and keeping personal items in your room.

If we are up at the same time in the morning I’ll gladly make breakfast and clean up. Otherwise, I’ll show you where everything is and you are welcome to fix your own, but please do clean up afterward.

If you play music, please keep it at low volume.

It’s an early-to-bed, early-to-rise household; please be considerate about returning at late hours; I appreciate knowing ahead of time if a late arrival is expected.

The cat is not allowed outdoors – she can be sneaky so please don’t leave doors open and keep an eye out for her.

Karen is a generous and gracious host with a cottage that is just as special as she is. The firm twin size bed tucked away in the colorful, book-filled room was a welcome retreat after scouting out this gorgeous area of Connecticut. If you leave enough time to share a cup of coffee with Karen, you are in for the best treat!

"Come as a stranger; leave as a friend." That old adage well describes Karen, and a stay at her beautiful cottage. Removed from the bustle of the world, the place is situated up a thin drive on the side of a hill...a great spot, surrounded by the flowers and plants! It is a spot of tranquility, yet restaurants, a great bookstore and shops are minutes away. Her cottage is clean and cozy, and our bedroom was perfect. The bed was comfortable, and it was easy to settle into the homey atmosphere. The house is an eclectic mix of colorful paint schemes and beautiful wood-it radiates warmth and an attention to detail. We shared coffee making duty in the mornings. Karin is a delightful conversationalist, and we discussed gardening, history, food and other topics. Her place represents the pinnacle of the Airbnb experience. When you stay here, it is memorable!

Thanks Ian - I have the feeling that you leave as a friend wherever you go - It was my treat having you here and getting to know you both.

Karen is an absolute sweetheart and her home is such a gem tucked into a cliff surrounded by her beautiful gardens. She provided such detailed info including directions that completely put my mind at ease since the area doesn't get great cell reception for using (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps! Karen greeted me so warmly and toured me her home which is so clearly loved and created by her own artistic abilities. Her sweet kitty Miss Leaf kept a close watch on me and it was so nice to be afforded some moments to chat with Karen and play with kitty. I was so grateful to have a lovely room to myself and I slept wonderfully with only the sounds of nature outside the windows. If you're in the area for business or pleasure I highly recommend staying with Karen who makes you feel like a part of her family.

Karen's home is friendly and warm, in a beautiful spot, with a lovely garden, and an eclectic creative vibe. We spent a peaceful night in a clean and comfortable room, lulled to sleep by gentle breezes and the sound of tree frogs in the surrounding woods. Karen, who was present, was an added bonus. Highly recommended.

We had the most wonderful time at Karen's house. She was incredibly welcoming and allowed us to use her house as our own. We travelled with a rather energetic toddler and Karen was delightful with him. It was so lovely to cook our meals at her house and sit in the evenings and talk. We would go back again. The area was quaint and beautifully scenic.

I'm a professional garden writer, speaker and eco-friendly garden coach. While I lecture all over the country and love traveling and meeting people, my roots are sunk into the land I have gardened for 25 years. The whole yard is my studio and I enjoy sharing my knowledge of plants, nature and gardening. There's no tv, but the house is full of books, music (I sing in a classical vocal ensemble), beautiful natural light and birdsong coming in through every window in summer.
Eating well and cooking with fresh local food are a passion and I enjoy improvisational cooking with friends.
I enjoy both company and solitude, and offer guests a choice of sociability or privacy, whichever they prefer. My schedule is work and weather-dependent, but if time permits I'm always up for a nice walk along the Housatonic River or a good long swim.
