Our family enjoyed a wonderful stay in Erle's sweet farmhouse for 3 weeks while we were relocating. Erle has created a really cosy, comfortable home, fully equipped with everything you can possibly need for a relaxing stay. We felt very welcome, like visiting family! The weather was great so the children enjoyed swimming in the stream and playing in the garden. We loved the convenience of farm fresh eggs from around the corner and enjoyed exploring the Aspetuck Land Trust hiking trails in the area. Thank you Erle for making our stay so memorable!
It would be hard to find a more lovely and historic setting to reunite 4 generations than this Connecticut home. From the moment you step out of your car you feel at home. The feeling continues as you move into Erle's magical house. The lovely entry, the delightful kitchen, looking towards the "Old Toy Factory" across the road, the large living room and the cozy den provide places for families to either be together or separate for reading and other activities. This property has a large yard with a river running through it and plenty of room to roam or just sit and enjoy the sounds and sights of the Connecticut country side. If you look into the history of the neighborhood you will discover even more things to make your stay memorable. Thank you Erle for providing such a wonderful place for our family reunion.
Our family of four had the pleasure of calling the Orando Perry House home for four months. From the moment we walked through the door, it was quickly evident that Erle prepared the home to make our stay as comfortable as possible. From having the bare necessities in the kitchen (coffee, oil, vinegar, et.) to the necessities in the bathrooms ( shampoo, conditioner, bodywash, etc.). Any questions or suggestions we had regarding our needs or comforts, Erle responded within 48 hours via email and was open to new ideas and always working things out to making our comfort her priority. The bedrooms were fresh and welcoming. There was plenty of firewood for us to use in the fireplace,,,, and believe me we did! We had the pleasure of watching the garden bloom to the degree that we assisted and invested ourselves in the maintenance of the beautiful garden. There is no way you could not invest yourself in this property once you experienced the history, joy, and beauty of it. You can fish in the back yard for your dinner, relax on a romantic stone bench by the river, or just sit by one of the many flower beds. We were very sorry to leave and often still drive by to check on the property. I recommend it HIGHLY!!
I've had an extended stay at the Orlando Perry House and have had nothing but the best experience. Erle the owner and her on site agent Sandy were each very responsive to all queries and requests I had upon moving in. Once settled in, the home has been a wonderful place in which to live. The home is clean and comfortable with all necessary items including bedding easily identifable. The setting is among the most beautiful I've seen and very convenient to both Fairfield and Westport with all their restaurants and train to NYC. Also I've enjoyed the local hiking in both Easton and Weston. Nothing but positives to say - I've stayed in several extended stay rentals on home away and Air BNB and this is among the nicest. Wholehearted recommend.
The owner is super nice & will respond immediately to any concerns or needs. The home is well appointed making you feel right at home. There’s a sweet little breakfast/lunch place a mile down the wooded road along a Country Club golf course which we enjoy walking to. A quaint country setting, but within a few miles you’ll find gas, garage, post office, coffee shop, country store. Parks with nature trails are all around you! We frequented the charming town of Westport less than 15 min. away with a world class theatre, lots of nice shops, restaurants & specialty grocery stores. There we would access the highway as well as the train station to New York City. It’s a 25 min. drive to the Norwalk Maritime Museum & the hip Sono area just for starters! We had a wonderful time at the Perry House for the second time & recommend it highly.
I had a great summer in the Perry House. Beautiful location and great area!! In addition, the property manager was readily available (although I only had one question) and the landlord couldn't have been nicer. They both remained in touch just to be sure my stay was going well. Thanks again!!
