Come Discover the Litchfield Hills

The Tri-State Region of Connecticut, New York, and Massachusetts is just around 2 hours from New York City and Boston. Full of culturally bountiful communities and well-protected conservation lands, forests, lakes, and streams. The region is home to many arts, music, and community festivals along with plenty of 4-season activities and events. Plus with an overabundance of organic farms and unique local shopping. Deciding on the ‘Town or Village’ in which to explore for available real estate may seem daunting with so many wonderful areas to choose from.

Salisbury, Connecticut

The Crown Jewel of Litchfield County

Located two hours north of New York City, the Town of Salisbury is nestled in the bucolic wonder of the northwest corner of Connecticut. From international vintage car races to ski jumping competitions, the area offers an array of activities for all seasons.  Even with the myriad of activities available in the town and surrounding areas, Salisbury has managed to maintain its rural feel as is immediately apparent when traveling its scenic roads among beautiful vistas of New England homes, rolling hills, pristine lakes, and babbling brooks. Visitors are welcome to stay at a choice of attractive inns and B&Bs, attend one of many beautiful churches, wander down the streets to visit shops, galleries, and eateries and take advantage of swimming at the town beach or boating on the beautiful area lakes. For those who call it home, the town offers an outstanding public school system as well as several renowned private schools.

Lakeville, Connecticut

A Family Friendly Community by the Lake

Within Salisbury, you will find this small community with the beautiful and recreational Wononscopomuc Lake at its center. Residents and visitors find a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere where there is plenty of opportunity for fun on the water. Lovingly known as “The Town Grove,” this natural water park is home to summer memories for all ages: young swimmers learn to swim motivated by the lifeguards’ swim test and chances to compete with the local swim team, teens gathering for some summer fun, and families and friends gathering to soak in the sun or a relaxing evening barbeque.

Sharon, Connecticut

A Vibrant Community the Heart of Rolling Farmland

Sharon’s clock tower stands prominently in the center of town – the embodiment of town’s revered reputation.  The cherished Sharon Green, accentuated by numerous historic district buildings, exemplifies the meaning of a quaint New England town – a gathering place for summer concerts, the starting line for the Sharon 5-Mile Road Race, home to the annual Sharon Craft Fair, a meeting ground for the holiday tree-lighting & caroling ceremony and the point at which the town’s near 60 square acres converge. Yet Sharon’s best-kept secret Mudge Pond is the beach, offering sandy lakeside swimming, a well-kept picnic area, and the area’s only public high-dive – a 3-meter plunge that has become a local right of passage amongst adults and children alike. Only 2 hours from NYC and in close proximity to Metro North’s Wassaic Station, it is no surprise that Sharon is a popular year-round and weekend destination for those who seek a tranquil respite.  

Norfolk, Connecticut

Quirky in the Most Charming Way!

Norfolk, contrary to being dubbed the “Ice Box” (due to its reputation of having the coolest temperatures in Connecticut), is a closely-knit and warm community that proudly embraces its brisk reputation.  Home to Infinity Hall and Yale Summer School of Arts & Music there is always an abundance of cultural opportunities and artistic expression.  Each Saturday the Norfolk Farmer’s Market’s whimsical signs lead the way to a bustling showcase of local artisans and musicians that have rightfully earned a reputation that coincides with town’s quirky nature.  A Five-Star Library that offers multi-age book clubs, art receptions, community picnics on the green and continuous year-round events sits at the forefront of the Norfolk community.

Cornwall, Connecticut

Cornwall, West Cornwall, & Cornwall Bridge

The 1841 covered bridge spanning the Housatonic River in West Cornwall is the unofficial emblem of northwestern Connecticut and evidence of residents’ pride in their history. The five villages that comprise the town of Cornwall offer a cornucopia of country activities. On the scenic drive along Route 7 between West Cornwall and Cornwall Bridge, fly fishermen cast for trout in one of the most breathtaking and accessible parts of the Housatonic River. There’s a rustic charm to Mohawk Mountain Ski Area, which is Connecticut’s largest ski and snowboard resort with 25 trails and 7 lifts on 330 acres surrounded by state forest.

Falls Village & Canaan, Connecticut

Awe-Inspiring Scenery within an Eclectic Community

Home to legendary Music Mountain, the oldest continuing summer chamber music festival in the country, as well as the progressive Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center, Falls Village looks like a town that time forgot.  Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Falls Village boasts easy access to the Appalachian Trail and a well-preserved Main Street with 18th and 19th-century houses in a variety of architectural styles. The village center also features quirky Toymakers Cafe (which is popular with weekend motorcyclists).

Quaint, Quintessential New England

Named after Coolbrooke, in the English county of Devon, the charming town of Colebrook is located between the towns of Norfolk and Winsted, CT.  It is home to the annual Colebrook Fair and the Colebrook River and Dam are central to the geography.
