Dreaming about a retreat away from the noise of the city? Consider secluded, affordable, wooded Bethany--Connecticut’s best-kept secret. A sleepy, slow-moving place, surrounded by a rich cultural oasis, Bethany had been named by Connecticut Magazine as among the best small towns in Connecticut. Your neighbor might be a nurse, a professor, a business mogul, a carpenter, but all of them fiercely defend its 58% of undeveloped land and its sustainable agriculture. After all, the town motto is “Rural is Beautiful.” With a population of only 5,500, it was jokingly described as having as many horses as people and there is a Horse Commissioner, who manages the many events available for horse lovers. All this, only 80 miles from New York City and 45 miles from Stamford by car or train.
Everyday when I drive home from work through the breathtaking views of the Long Island Sound and the marsh, I can imagine I’m going home to my little, private island. That’s the feel you get by living amongst the water in Lordship, CT. An intimate community with so much to offer, many longtime residents will tell you once you live in Lordship, you will never live anywhere else.
