Die Unterkunft
This historic circa 1850s property once served as a gunsmith’s shop along the beautiful Bantam River just across from the old depot. It has undergone an extensive renovation preserving the historic charm but modernized for a New York City family seeking a luxurious and peaceful retreat.

The location is quiet, serene and private, yet convenient to the very best villages and attractions Litchfield County is known for. There are no other homes in view, yet the cottage is centrally located only 4 miles from downtown Bantam, Washington Depot and New Preston as well as Bantam Lake, Mt. Tom State Park and Lake Waramaug. Three of Litchfield County’:s best skiing and snow boarding resorts are located within 30 minutes of the cottage - Mt Mowhawk is just 15 miles away! There is cross country skiing nearby at local state parks.

Also close to several private boarding schools including The Gunnery and Rumsey Hall for visiting parents or faculty. Nearby activities include the Connecticut Wine Trail, plentiful hiking trails, and the Woodbury Antique trail as well as several fine dining restaurants and spas including Winvian Farms, The Mayflower and Arethusa’s al Tavolo—all within five miles.

The Cottage is beautifully appointed and sits on a private, ½ acre parcel of the Bantam River. The glorious sound of the river can be heard from every room. A large landscaped deck is beautifully furnished with comfortable seating, dining, a charcoal grill and firepit. Near the water’s edge you’ll find a dining table and two wonderful Adirondack chairs. Across the large garden lawn are two comfortable garden benches nestled in the flower garden and at the forest edge—perfect spots for a quite conversation or enjoying some time alone. An oversized hammock hangs in a small grove of majestic pines near the river’s edge as well. The cedar outbuilding holds lawn games such as croquet, badminton and even whiffle ball along with a whole house back-up generator ensuring uninterrupted power during winter. There are even granite steps installed to lead you into the river.

First floor includes a well-appointed kitchen with high-end kitchenware, living room with gas fireplace, window seat, entry with baby grand Steinway piano. There is also a first-floor bedroom with queen sized bed, armoire for storing clothes, bedside reading lamps, luxury lines, white goose down pillows and hooded bathrobes. There is also a fabulous full bath with double marble vanities, claw foot tub and shower, towel warmer and a great view of the river. A laundry room with full sized washer and dryer complete the first floor.

Upstairs you will find a TV den with full size pull out sofa, spacious master bedroom with queen bed, seating area and panoramic views of the river. There is a second bedroom with two twin beds, bedside reading sconces and wonderful views of the river as well. An oversized bath serves both bedrooms but has en suite access from the master. There is a free-standing glass shower, double marble vanities, towel warmer and window with a view of the river. and garden.

Amenities include original artwork, 100 Mpbs wireless internet, cable TV, Netflix, Sonos Wi-Fi music system throughout the property, built-in USB ports for charging electronics, high quality mattresses, high thread count linens, white goose down pillows, luggage racks in every bedroom, gas log fireplace, a Dutch door in the kitchen, radiant heat flooring in bathrooms, screened windows and doors and firewood for the firepit. Close your eyes and unwind with only the sound of the river and leaves rustling in the trees to surround you.

The Bantam River Cottage is only 75 miles from Manhattan and about 20 minutes from the nearest Metro-North train station in Waterbury. Danbury, CT train station is 30 minutes away and Brewster, NY 45 minutes away. At just under two hours, but worlds away from NYC, this beautiful cottage is the perfect weekend or vacation getaway.

No other homes are in direct view of the property, which gives the feeling of being very private. Very little road traffic - peaceful and quiet. A few passers by on foot, walking their dogs, is much more common. You feel like you're a million miles away from everything, when actually you are quite close (within 5 miles) to the very best Litchfield county has to offer.

Love to travel, cook, entertain, spend time with family and friends. We’ve lived in several interesting cities - New Orleans being our favorite. Our motto seems to be ‘Bloom Where You’re Planted’. We make the most of wherever we are and try to be intentional about making friends and experiencing wherever we’re at to the fullest.
