Windy Top Cottage ~ A Romantic “European” Getaway
This stone cottage is beyond gorgeous. Constructed in 1932, the Windy Tip Cottage once served as the domestic quarters for the staff of wealthy Hartford families who were summering there.
With 1,000 swuare feet of living space, today the cottage accommodates up to 4 guests in luxurious comfort. The massive stone fireplace is the central focus of the home, and you’re bound to enjoy many evenings sitting before a warm fire. Heading outdoors? Have a campfire in the firepit in the garden.
Romantic, English countryside decor makes this a wonderful choice for two people searching for romantic getaways in CT. However, this Airbnb is located near many of the top boarding schools in the area, so it could be an ideal spot for parents visiting their kids or families checking out the nearby schools.
Lake Cottage w/ Views & Fireplace – Sherman, CT
To me, cottage and cabin are largely interchangeable words. This lake retreat is listed as a cottage, but it has distinct cabin vibes. So it definitely belongs in this list of top Connecticut cabin rentals.
If you are looking to escape the city, you can be in nature here only 90 minutes from NYC. You will have access to two private beaches on both Candlewood Lake and Green Pond and can enjoy the views from the spacious deck.
The property sleeps 5 in 2 bedrooms. There is a cozy fireplace. jacuzzi bathtub, and gas BBQ- so you’ve got your cabin essentials covered–but you’re also getting a full kitchen, free parking, lake access, hiking, and more. And peace and quiet is virtually guaranteed in this private gated community.

This is a 2-story cabin that has a kitchen, full bath, and stone fireplace, as well as stone patios and an outdoor fireplace. There is also a beautiful swimming pool just next to it. From the pool area, you’ll have a view of the historic, imposing main property just up the hill (a gorgeous stone mansion). This cabin is located within the grounds of a historic landmark on top of Talcott Mountain. You have easy access to lots of nearby attractions, too, so you’ll definitely have an excellent vacation.
Cosy, modern, forest cabin with babbling brook – Cornwall, CT
A very modern, magazine-worthy CT Airbnb cabin, this place is stunning. It also proves that cabins don’t have to be brown and traditional to look amazing.
4 guests can stay in 2 bedrooms in this 1930s renovated cabin. The bright and airy space overlooks a private brook and there is plenty to do nearby, including access to hiking trails.
If you’re visiting Connecticut’s beautiful Litchfield Hills region, this could be an ideal cabin from which to base yourself during your stay.

As the photo suggests, canine pals are welcome at this A-frame cabin in New Milford, CT. (However, please note you must get advanced permission from the owner).
Is there any type of cabin more charming than an A-frame? You’ll adore this one, which was designed by a Finnish architect back in the 1960s. There are unique features like the enormous windows and a free-standing fireplace.
