    Wonderful Summer Getaway
    This is a cozy retreat with refreshing air conditioning and a nice porch to hang out and have wine, beer and burgers. The area is amazing with tons of walking trails, swimming, great little shops, delicious restaurants and historic sites. We loved it.

    My family enjoyed everything about our stay! Chagall's Retreat is wonderful place to unplug!
    This is location is perfect for enjoying the amazing outdoors in Litchfi County, Connecticut. Melanie and Gary are absolutely great hosts. The space was perfect for our 3 year old daughter and dog. We were within in minutes of Lake Waramaug, tons of hiking trails, farms, and really great local food options. Our daughter enjoyed swimming at the lake, hiking the Story Book Trail at Macricostas Preserve and walks along the river at Hidden Valley Perserve. We had a great time gathering local produce and grilling in the evenings. The property is quiet, tranquil, and a great place to unplug for a week of vacation.

    Peaceful and lovely!
    My daughter and I desperately needed a peaceful respite from the city, and this cabin was exactly what we were looking for! It's clean, quiet, sunny, and absolutely beautiful. The owners - Melanie and Gary - were sweet and helpful, we felt immediately at home. The cabin is an annex that's attached to their house, but we had a separate entrance and our own outdoor space, so it was very private. The location is fantastic - lots of great hiking in the area and it's right down the street from the beach at Lake Waramaug. The beach is very clean and the lake is breathtaking! We'll definitely be back!

    Amazing, cute cottage
    Melanie, the owner, is wonderful. The cottage is private, clean, airy, with lots of natural light. The beds are very comfortable and the house comes with a kitchenette and outdoor gas grill. We will definitely return!
