The Cozy Moose
Vermont Living in Connecticut - 1 Bedroom retreat w inground pool, fire pit, patio, and ATV/hiking trails
You will think you are in Vermont in this authentic log home nested in the woods in Connecticut. This log home is in Newtown, CT, and while close to all the amenities of the area, the home is set back in the woods on 9 acres of land. It is a small paradise in itself! On the grounds, there is a large in-ground pool, patio and a very large fire pit. You’ll also have about 7 acres of private hiking trails behind the house with another 50 acres of secluded forest behind that. This 50 acres is town owned and not accessible to the public as private homes landlock it.
One and a half hours from Manhattan, this log cabin is set in the woods of Newtown, Connecticut, with towering pines. Escape the hustle and bustle, clear your mind, and enjoy nature. A wonderful place to get some fresh air or relax. Beautiful summers for leisurely hikes and cold downs in a refreshing pool. Great for a couples getaway, friends' weekend, or some quality time with the family.
The Cozy Moose will consider pets. There is a pet fee of $20 per day per pet. All pets must be approved. No furry friends are allowed on any furniture at any time or in the pool. The owner asks that no pets are left alone on the property, and if it's necessary to leave your pet, they must be crated.
Our owner likes to refer to the Cozy Moose as Vermont living in Connecticut. The property is truly a place to escape the more modern world and slow down. I think the best things to do in our immediate area and at the cabin are: star-gazing, napping in the yard or by the pool, sitting by the fire pit and roasting marshmallows, snow-shoeing through the backwoods around the cabin, and exploring. There is plenty of space outside to decide where to spend your time. Guests have access to the lower level, which provides a rustic feel. Private bedroom and living space, kitchenette and laundry room. The backyard is level and a wonderful place for yard games, and the front yard is massive, sloping down to a picturesque red barn.
- Queen Bed
- Full Bathroom (shower)
- Living space for games, movie night, hanging out
- Large walk-in basement with full bar and seating
- Laundry Room
- We do our best to keep the pool open for as long as possible. Typically, mid-April through Labor Day. It all depends on the freeze and thaw. Currently, there is no heater attached to the pool.
-Yes, The Cozy Moose is a fantastic place to just "get away," but there are tons to do within a short drive. A guest book with local attractions and restaurants and everything you need to know about the property will await you upon arrival.
Newtown is home to some amazing breweries, a winery, and many fantastic restaurants. But if true escape is what you want, the home is stocked with all the furnishings you will need to grill and cook up your feast. There are several grocery stores within a minute's drive from the property.
The Cozy Moose is just off the main road and has a long secure packed driveway. You won't see the home from the road. . It is easy to miss the driveway, so we will be sure to give you extremely good directions so there are no complications finding your way.
The Cozy Moose has lots of modern upgrades and amenities, including strong WIFI, central A/C, microwave, refrigerator, full bathroom, a washer and dryer, Cable and streaming TV. The property has a generator in the event of power loss. Owners occupy the space upstairs but give guests their privacy. Private entrance and owner will not enter guest space unless announced or given prior approval.
This is your place to enjoy. You can play, rest, relax or do nothing. During the night, we suggest you sit outside on the deck and view the stars and listen to nothing but nature, and in the morning, It's a great place to write, do yoga, nap, cuddle, sit around for hours and talk with your loved ones, or just be :)
The lower ground level of this cabin and its contents are yours to use. The property trails are properly maintained and will be a terrific place to walk or snowshoe. A trail map of the property will be included in our "Welcome book."
