Other things to note

For History Buffs:
The Indian name for Pomfret was “Mashamoquet” meaning “great fishing place”. The land was purchased from the Indians in 1686. Pomfret was incorporated in 1713. The Town was named after Governor Saltonstall’s estate Pontefract (meaning broken bridge) in Yorkshire, England and celebrated its 300th anniversary throughout 2013!

The Abington Congregational Church built in 1751 is the oldest church in continuous use in Connecticut. The Brayton Mill at the entrance to Mashamoquet Brook State Park is an early mill site.

The Old Town House built in 1841 has served for town meetings, elections, and social affairs. The Pomfret School was founded in 1894 as a boarding school for young men. The Rectory School opened in 1920. Both still serve as private schools. A ride down Pomfret Street presents an impressive display of the historical buildings.

The Abington Social Library (1813) is the oldest active library in America formed by women. Famous residents have included Israel Putnam (Major General in the Revolutionary War), James A. MacNeill Whistler (artist), Louise Chandler Moulton (poet), and Robert Hillyer (poet).

Pomfret is served by two post offices and a number of important local businesses. The Town continues to maintain its agricultural heritage with many “green” initiatives, well over 1,000 acres of preserved open space, and many miles of accessible trail networks.

We had a couples retreat weekend in this beautiful house. All six couples agreed that Feather hill was exactly what we needed. This place is clean, spacious and each couple had their own room and bathroom. Christine is a great host. I truly recommend this place.

Feather Hill was a wonderful place to stay with family, everyone had their own room and bathroom and the outside deck was a great place to gather. The property is beautiful. We truly enjoyed our visit.

Christine's home is beautiful, clean, and comfortable and was a perfect location for a get together with old college friends. The surrounding towns have great shops and restaurants and we spent a wonderful evening at the Golden Lamb Buttery. Christine also connected us to the ladies at Salon One, a short walk from the house, and several of us took advantage of the outstanding facials, massages and manicures they offered. There is a walking trail right behind the house, but we spent most of our time hanging out in the large chef's kitchen, or on one of the two decks that wrap around the house. We brought a couple of airbeds which we used to fit our group of 13 a bit more comfortably, but there are plenty of bathrooms and the towels and sheets were clean and inviting. The 4 pm check-in was a bit inconvenient for the friends who flew in from out of town (and though we asked about an earlier checkin, due to cleaning it was not possible), but in fairness, the listing was clear about the timing. Overall, we had an outstanding weekend together at Christine's and the house served as a perfect place to stay.

Beautiful home in a pretty setting. Loved the large deck under the large maple tree where I would do yoga every morning. Kitchen was large and a great place to congregate. Family room was very comfortable.
