Why Dean chose Middle Haddam
This property I purchased for a house flip. A few weeks into this project I fell in love with it and knew I couldn't sell it. So I spent the next 8 months ripping apart the entire house, redesigning the layout, moving walls, replacing all plumbing & electrical adding state of the art AC & Heating systems. I put this house together the way I wanted, using only the best materials. I personally designed & installed all the tile, marble, kitchen cabinets, windows/doors, outside deck, everything down to picking the paint colors. The house came out fantastic and it is here for you to enjoy. 8 out of 10 people said the pictures don't do it justice.
What makes this House unique
Unique benefits this home has to offer... 1) A heliport. Fly in if you wish or have a helicopter come take you for a ride. 2) Privacy. No neighbors, not even across the river. Complete solitude & only a 5 minute ride to shopping, gas & restaurants. 3) Unbelievable panoramic views. You can sit on the deck and watch the sun set directly over the other side of the river. After that gather around the fire pit on the deck. 4) The beach. Take a walk down the staircase to the river. Here I have a rowboat, canoe, 7' float island, fire pit, picnic table, chairs, propane grill for you to use. 5) You can bring your own boat to use on the river during your stay. Enjoy!

Warenda’s long weekend
Property description is accurate. Very spacious. Slept 8 adults comfortably. Rough trip to the river. 80 stairs get you half way. About 20 yards was a steep climb in grass. Very nice view of river.
Thank you for your review! We are currently building stairs on the grass area. Thanks for staying with us!
amazing view and beautiful home
This property was super in every way, its setting right on the Connecticut River is something to behold. The huge deck and the awesome design is a must see and the firepit on the deck was a huge hit with everyone. The house is fully stocked, the floor plan is great and if you are going with friends or family this is perfect for privacy for everyone. Probably as good is the owner, Dean. He is super accommodating and when I left one of my computer components there he graciously mailed it back to me, not something a lot of people would do. Five Stars for sure.
Amazing Views! Amazing outdoor space large enough for family & friends.
The property was beautiful with lots of space for family & friends to gather. The views of the river were amazing. When we weren't on the water, we spent the majority of our stay out on the back deck. It was really quite spectacular.
The walk to the river is not for the faint of heart. Lots of stairs, many of which were not finished and a little scary, to be honest. But, the beach at he bottom made it worth the trek. The water access with our 28ft pontoon boat was so convenient!
The house was comfortable with a well equipped kitchen with nice appliances. The bathrooms were clean with fixtures, etc.
We would definitely stay here again!
Thank you! and the stairs will be complete Spring 2020 :-)
The River House
We really enjoyed our stay here, the view is lovely and we had plenty of space for 7 adults. The deck is a great place to hang out and relax.
Thank you we loved having you you guys were great guests
This home is incredible!! The view is gorgeous, the big porch is relaxing and had a lovely, gas fire pit. The home was comfortable and in perfect condition when we got there. The kitchen had everything you need and a convenient island. We also enjoyed dipping our feet in the water and taking in the view. Great sunsets. There is also plenty to do in the area for dinner, breweries, wineries, etc. We enjoyed Arrigoni Winery down the road during our stay with live music.
Dean was an excellent host. He greeted us and made sure we had everything we needed. Thank you, Dean, for sharing your beautiful home!
Thank you for your comments! It was great meeting you
Great deck in Connecticut
Perfect setting for a graduation celebration. Deck is perfect. Kitchen worked very well to set a party. Terrific sound-system.
Wish I had more time to just relax at this location.
