Amselhaus - if you can find it, it is a good find.
The Amselhaus is an old farmhouse converted into two duplex apartment complexes, each with two bedrooms and a full kitchen, dining room, living room, and outdoor porch near the banks of the Housatonic River in Cornwall, four miles from the famous Covered Bridge. It is obviously an old building, but it has been renovated and tastefully decorated, and all amenities are provided. It is located on a dirt road off of Route 7 behind a rug store, so it is a challenge to find. It was an enormous help to have the hotel proprietor waiting for us in a golf cart, who then led us down the road to the hotel. Full breakfast was also included at the old Country Store across the street.

4/5 Good

The space was perfect for our needs. We loved the trees surrounding the property. If you follow the directions provided it is very easy to find.

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We were not able to stay at this Inn - it was infested with ladybugs and although the owner indicated it was for a short time (1 week during the yr) we did not care to stay somewhere where ladybugs were crawling on the ceiling, floor, etc. The owner was vacuuming when we arrived, trying to keep up with bugs. It was not a good location - difficult to find and limited services available in immediate area. We lost our $258.00 for the night as we had to find more suitable accommodations!

호텔 이라고 할 수 없는 오래된 집
사진을 보고 깨끗하고 좋을 것 같아서 갔으나 보자마자 낚였다는 생각이 듬. 체크인 하는 데스크 이런거 존재 안한다. 로밍콜로 전화해야 주인이 나와서 안내해준다. 물론 주인은 친절하시다. 콜로니얼 하우스라고 쓰고 오래된 집이라고 읽는다. 찾기 어려운 위치인데다가 집이 낡아서 마루바닥이 삐걱대며, 가구는 깔끔하게 잘 정돈 되어있으나 대체로 조명이 어두워서 저녁이 되면 무섭다. 주변이 다 깜깜하다. 분위기있는 산장을 원하신다면 가셔도 좋을 듯. 2층으로 구성되어있고 아래층은 거실과 부엌, 화장실, 윗층은 침실두개, 화장실과 욕실이 있다. 그 사이에는 아주 가파른 계단이 존재한다는 사실. 무거운 짐가방은 들고 오르락내리락 할 수가 없다. 정상적인 성인이 오르락내리락하기에도 좀 불편할 정도. 앞에 호수인지 냇가인지가 있어 고즈넉하고 좋지만 밤엔 깜깜하고 주변에 인적도 드물어서 무섭고, 아침식사는 길건너에 레스토랑에서 할 수 있다. 내가 간날은 마침 비가 쏟아져서 그냥 부엌에서 음식 해서 먹었어서 레스토랑 분위기는 잘 모르겠다. 천장에는 무당벌레가 기어다니며, 자연과 벗할 수 있는 좋은 곳이다. 그러나 다시는 이가격에 가고 싶지 않은 곳.
