The Secret Corner of NWCT

Ssssssshhhhhhhhhh…..

Nestled between the Berkshires of Massachusetts and the Hudson Valley of New York, the Northwest Corner of Connecticut is a cluster of historic, unspoiled towns connected by breathtaking rural scenery.  Just 100 miles north of New York City, the northwest corner’s communities- Canaan, Cornwall, Falls Village, Goshen, Kent, Lakeville, Norfolk, Salisbury and Sharon- are defined by pre-Revolutionary houses, majestic lakes, hiking trails through lush forests, and working farms where you can purchase organic vegetables and pasture-raised meats or pick apples and berries in season.   Home to both America’s greatest living actress (Meryl Streep) and greatest living painter (Jasper Johns), the northwest corner is where celebrities, farmers, artists, and tourists all dine at the same restaurants, canoe on the same rivers, rub shoulder at the same gallery openings and fall festivals.  With its picturesque winding roads and quaint Main Streets reminiscent of Currier & Ives, the northwest corner is Connecticut’s best-kept secret – a sophisticated but understated region with authentic New England Style and soul –
