"Why Litchfield County Connecticut Is Catching Up to the Catskills as the Perfect Weekend Getaway"
With its well-known hippie towns, stunning mountain vistas, and variety of cool-kid outposts, New York’s Catskill region gets plenty of well-deserved accolades—and, of course, plenty of visitors. But for those looking for a city escape that’s just a tad less buzzy, there’s an equally impressive and just as easy to get to option on the other side of the Hudson River: Connecticut’s Litchfield County.
Long a popular country retreat for NYC finance types, the area—which includes the picturesque towns of New Preston, Kent, New Milford, Litchfield, Bantam, and Washington—has recently become a favorite for creatives looking to recharge, too. “There’s something for everyone: art galleries, outdoor activities, shopping, great food,” explains Cheri Bowen, a talent manager at The Society Management, who purchased a weekend home in the county earlier this year. “With its covered bridges, forests, and rivers, the scenery is gorgeous. In fact, every season challenges the next for which is more beautiful. The leaves this fall have been taking my breath away.”
Connecticut has the longest fall foliage season in New England, and since it’s peaking for the next few weeks, there’s never been a better time to plan your own leaf-peeping weekend away. Below, a look at where to stay, shop, and eat should you decide to go. Just be warned that, according to Bowen, there is one tiny downside: “The drive back home when you realize there are five whole days to wait until you get to come back again.”

We are from NYC and needed a place to get away, so we bought a country home in the historic district of Milton, in the village of Litchfield, Connecticut. I live with my husband, who is originally from Paris, France, and Lu-Lu, our 9 year old rescued calico cat.
I enjoy having visitors and sharing this beautiful location my guests. Our new home had a separate space above the garage that was quiet, the windows faced 100 year old trees, and the room was flooded with light. A perfect place for couples or a place to run away to rest and chill, a mini retreat, and in my backyard is the relaxing sound of the Shepaug River.
..life is good.
