“We had an amazing experience at Christie's place. We were looking for a long weekend escape from NYC and we found paradise!!! Christie is a great host that made us feel extremely welcome. Our kids (4yo and 6 months) had the best time ever, so many things to do, to learn, to play. A huge blast!! Our oldest left in tears!! Many thanks Christie for your kindness and for being so accommodating, you really made an unforgettable experience. Many thanks for everything and please say hello to Manhattan!! Five star!!!”
Christie's reviewsAs a host (6)
“I had a lovely time staying in Christie and Greg's guest house. They were very hospitable and it was so nice to take advantage of the excellent pool and the hiking and biking opportunities. It is an easy trip from NYC so makes a perfect quick get-away!”
“Had a perfect week in CT at Christie and Gregg's home. The house is conveniently located, beautiful, and comfortable. Plus, all the bells and whistles a few NYC kids could ask for - cats, dogs, chickens (and baby chicks!), pool, tennis, trampoline, swings...it's truly kid heaven. Christie and Gregg (and their children) were incredibly welcoming and generous hosts. Extremely grateful for their thoughtful hospitality and the chance to escape Brooklyn for a week :)”
“We had an amazing time at this house. The kids loved the pool and spent hours splashing around. The basketball court, ping pong, air hockey, trampoline - just so much to do! The house was very relaxing, it was cosy yet very spacious and had everything we needed (even an office to disappear to for work calls). The nature reserve behind the house was perfect for short walks or longer hikes, the meadows were beautiful. Christie was so responsive and helped us out when needed, gave us great instructions and answered all and any questions we had. Couldn't recommend it more, we loved it! ”
“We had an incredible stay at Christie's beautiful home... If you want every amenity your family could possibly desire, surrounded by beautiful grounds and nature (complete with wandering chickens), and still be only 2 minutes to the supermarket, this is the dream retreat for you! The large, beautiful family home is super comfortable and clean, and had amazingly fun details. My kids had fun sitting in the swing chairs installed in the teen bedrooms :). A huge heated swimming pool, hot tub, trampoline, tree swings, and full gym were incredible perks to being on this idyllic property. But most noteworthy was the incredible attention given by Christie and Gregg with any question we had. A lovely family, and a lovely home!”
“Our family has the most wonderful experience at this beautiful home, and can't recommend it enough! The host family are incredible, kind and warm people and we were very fortunate to have gotten to meet them. The home is just perfect and with so many amenities and activities for both children and adults. The grounds are magnificent, with an expanse of land, forests and rivers to explore. The location is amazing too, as it feels like its deep in the countryside whilst its actually only minutes away from the town center and its restaurants, shops etc. Just a lovely experience all around and we will certainly be back! ”
Where is it?
The house is located at the back corner of a horse-shoe cul-de-sac quiet street, ideal for kids to roam around and explore, go for bike rides and walks. It is a short walk (less than 1 km) to town, where you will find markets, coffee shops, gourmet restaurants, bakeries, gift shops, nail spa, salon and many other amenities. There is even a movie and live performance theater less than a 1 km walk from the house.
