The space

Now that the kids are grown my husband and I have a ton of extra room going to waste, and we'd love some company! Centrally located in Connecticut in a safe suburb of Newington, we're proud to share our spacious home surrounded by an acre and a half of well-maintained property. The house is set back four hundred feet from the street with tons of parking, is clean and well-kept, has plenty of space and privacy as well as open gathering places, and is occupied by a very friendly family of three (two during the academic year when my son is at school in Ithaca, NY).

Set alongside a cliff overlooking Piper Brook, spring, summer, and fall days are extremely pleasant amid the gardens and greenery, while in winter a hill for sledding tempts families to go outside. If you're just looking for a place to crash for the night, that's fine too!

There are three available rooms, as well as additional couch space allowing for a maximum of nine guests. The largest of the three rooms has an very comfortable queen size bed as well as a futon, is at the farthest end of the house offering the most privacy, and has a porch overlooking the backyard. The blue room has a queen size bed, and the green room has a trundle which converts to two twin beds or one queen size bed. All three have access to the same full bathroom, and there is a half-bathroom downstairs. See "Beautiful Property, Friendly Home" 2 and 3 for the other available rooms.

Amenities include wi-fi, washer and dryer, 30-foot above-ground pool (June-September), grand piano, hammock, multiple porches, chiminea, air hockey, foosball, and basic exercise equipment. Five minutes from CCSU, fifteen minutes from the University of St. Joseph, twenty minutes from the University of Hartford, and halfway between NYC and Boston.

This listing is for the largest and most secluded of the three rooms.

Susan and Paul were very welcoming and easy to get along with. The room was comfortable....we would have liked a little closet space, but adapted to the hanging rack. Also our room lacked a tv, but we should have checked that out prior to our visit. We had access in other ro…

Sue and her family made me feel right at home from the first night. They are incredibly welcoming and you can't go wrong staying with them. When I travel to Hartford in the future, I'll certainly be looking to book a room in the Tine household! The property itself is very nice…

Our stay at Susan's and Paul's was great. They were so welcoming and made us feel at home immediately even if our schedule was crazy and we arrived late and left early. I would recommend everyone to stay in this beautiful house.

You can never go wrong with the Tine Family. I have never travelled by myself and was in town for the weekend taking an exam. Mr. and Mrs. Tine went out their way to make me feel at home and helped me feel at ease in a time of stress and uncertainty. We even went out to dinner to…

It was nice to host Eric and Holland who were so friendly and fun to visit with! They are such positive and sweet down to earth people and I'm hoping they'll be back in the spring!

Our hosts were as friendly and hospitable as they could be. They were flexible with our schedule and attentive that we had everything we needed (including plenty of coffee). A photo could not do this lovely home justice. This is an idyllic country setting with beautiful landsc…
