Connecticut & Rhode Island
Victorian in the Trees, Connecticut
This historic home will tug at all your heartstrings - trust us! Lovingly restored while still retaining many original details, this c. 1840 home is a great place to cozy up (there are so many good reading nooks) for the weekend. You're perched right above a charming small town - the local potter's studio and Wild Moose Cafe pancakes are not to miss.
Looking out over the Housatonic River, this rustic cottage filled with antiques is the place to spend a weekend. Hike on the nearby Appalachian trail, go for a swim, cast a line in the river, and then gather around the fire for some s'mores to cap out a fulfilling day in nature.
Perched on the edge of three forested acres, this stylish guesthouse is the ideal place to relax and listen to the spring peepers as you fall asleep. With 2 beds and a modern, airy design - this cabin would be great for a weekend away with your best pals. The beach, hiking trails, and not-to-miss antique shops are just a short drive away.
A charming cottage built in 1920 that sits on a small pond filled with birds and frogs and foliage - what else could you ask for? Maybe a state park mere steps away? Well, it's got that too! Settle into this cozy spot for the weekend and enjoy the perfect combination of relaxation & exploration.
Geodesic Dome in the Woods, Connecticut
Hand built with wood from the property it sits on, this woodsy geodesic dome is small but mighty. You'll be completely off grid in the dome but have access to a kitchen and bathroom in the owner's house 100ft away. You'll be staying on a working organic farm so at the right time of year make sure you ask if you can help with farm tasks in exchange for fresh produce.
You get the best of both worlds with this one - a rustic handbuilt structure that looks and feels like a houseboat but is structurally more like a cabin (unfortunately it doesn't actually float out on the river!). Gaze out over the water as you lay in bed drinking your morning coffee. A fully equipped kitchen and bathroom are a short walk away.
