Recommended by The New York Times, Yankee Magazine and AAA Car & Driver, Chickadee Cottage is tucked away on four gorgeous acres in the northeast corner of Connecticut's "Quiet Corner," bordered by state walking trails, permanently open land and a tranquil pond.
Putnam, New England's center for antiques, is just five miles down the road. An award-winning winery, fine dining, Scenic Route 169, and antiquing are all within minutes of the Carriage House. The 30-mile Airline Rail Trail is adjacent to the Carriage House and is ideal for walking, trail running, mountain biking, cross-country skiing and snow shoeing. Aptly described by The New York Times as "classic New England without traffic or kitsch," the Quiet Corner is within easy reach of New York City (3 hours), Boston (1.25 hours) and Hartford (45 minutes).
