Destination & Accommodations


The 250 year old quaint town of Goshen, CT in Litchfield County, epitomizes country life and charm - farmland and mountains meet to create a hidden gem in the picturesque countryside. You feel removed from the world yet completely full of life. Although you may never want to leave the serenity of Woodridge Lake, the surrounding area offers a wealth of natural beauty, recreation and entertainment opportunities.


Krista’s private home in Woodridge Lake sits on an acre of land nestled into the woods creating a totally private feel. A contemporary gem in the wilderness, the house boasts a great room for gatherings, sitting room, large dining area and welcoming kitchen perfect for entertaining. The four bedrooms are each appointed with soothing colors to help relax and restore calm. The large back deck spans the entire length of the house, half is screened in to allow for outdoor enjoyment and dining. The other half is open air and is the perfect place to do yoga or relax in the sun with a good book. Two inviting rocking chairs sit on the front porch, a favorite spot to watch the hummingbirds during the summer months. Comfortable couches, beautiful linens, high speed internet, and bath products are provided for guests. Her home is your home at the lake!
