For this house, you wouldn’t even need to install any lightbulbs because the natural lighting makes it so bright and airy already. With a plethora of windows and skylights, you also get a ton of views of the mill and pond outside. The furniture feels contemporary and was designed to celebrate artists like Van Gogh.
You’ll be surrounded by an endless amount of trees, flowers and animals during your stay. Take a trip down to the pond and the woods nearby and view some of the mallards, egrets or swans in their natural homes.

The house is also centrally located, being 50 minutes away from New York City, 20 minutes away from the town of Yale and is also very close to the sea.

This farmhouse accommodation looks like something straight out of a movie. With an antique look and charming feel to it, the white-painted exterior makes it very welcoming for guests. Moreover, the space can be modified to have up to four bedrooms for seven guests, making it the perfect house for big families or large groups of friends.
Better yet, the beach is only a mile (1.6 kilometres) away, meaning that you can get some fun in the sun at your convenience. If you want to head out on a longer trip, it only takes an hour to get to New York City.

If you want to experience a fairytale-like stay, choose this old cottage surrounded by trees, grasslands and a flowing river. Walking across a small bridge will bring you to your new home that screams rustic yet charming. On the porch, you can watch all the animals that roam across the spacious land, and in front of the stone fireplace, you and your family can gather together for a peaceful night.
It’ll be hard to leave the tranquillity of this space, but there are still restaurants and a beach nearby if you’d like to. It’s also an hour’s drive to New York City in case you want to visit this bustling metropolis.

This accommodation was built all the way back in 1806, over two centuries ago. But don’t let the age fool you because it has been renovated and furnished with the latest furniture and gadgets. The bathroom is fully equipped with a bathtub and a shower. The kitchen has a microwave, a fridge and a coffeemaker for you to whip up some meals. Surrounding the house itself are unique art pieces that will definitely intrigue you.
For a more peaceful and tranquil getaway, the meditative grounds are right next to you. Find some zen at the copper beech tree that’s 300 years old, or at the ponds, gardens and sculptures nearby.
