Perhaps the most beautiful place in eastern Connecticut. This historic stone castle built by the actor who played Sherlock Holmes, has stunning views on the Connecticut River. A perfect place to walk, pick-nick, and it is also a museum (check for open times, because it varies.)

Buttonwoods makes fresh, farm-made ice cream with generous servings, and lots of flavors. There is always a crowd in good weather. Seasonal - it is ice-cream after all. Also, some people feel it is a bit expensive, but they usually go anyway.
