Litchfield County, located in the Northwest corner of Connecticut, is known for its remarkable scenic beauty: the Litchfield Hills, the Housatonic and Shepaug Rivers, Lake Waramaug, Bantam and Twin Lakes, The Appalachian Trail, Kent Falls and thousands of protected acres held by land trusts. These provide almost limitless opportunities for boating, swimming, fishing, hiking, downhill and cross country skiing or simply relaxing amid this bounty of natural splendor. Much of the beauty of the county is also man-made-Colonial America has been preserved in many fine homes which predate the Revolutionary War. Ancient stone walls, once defining the boundaries of farmland, now meander through second growth forests. Charming town greens mark the center of villages. There is also a rich cultural vitality: fine restaurants, a vibrant art scene, antiques dealers, artisanal food shops, a 24-stop wine trail, an annual Jazz Festival, even a film festival. This dichotomy of rural charm and simplicity and sophisticated offerings has drawn many New Yorkers to own a second, more serene home here. That most communities are less than a two-hour drive from Manhattan makes it even more attractive.
