Le logement

The Italianate style house was built in 1841. You enter the mansion through the main entrance door and hallway, both for guests only. At the end of the hallway on the first floor you will find your quaint bedroom with 3 windows - all with garden views. This bedroom has 2 single beds that can be comfortably connected with a special doubling system to a king size bed. Across the hallway is a large double parlor living room for guest use only. Sometimes we do rent out the upstairs 3 bedrooms to groups of 3 people and more who will also have access to the double parlor living room on the first floor.
We serve a light breakfast in the morning.
We have 2 indoor cats.
The Spirit of 76 House is named after a mural on the West side facade. The House has been in the family since 1908 and we continue the tradition of hospitality and jovial country living. Enjoy the New England countryside in this charming estate situated on 4 acres of lawns gardens and open fields. We are located in the Connecticut River Valley in the village of Higganum. Early English settlements in the Higganum area are documented since 1660. At that time the sachem or sovereign of the territory around Higganum was Towwehashque of the Wongunk tribe. In 1697 she was succeeded by her daughter Pampenum.
The surrounding areas are used for many recreational activities like biking, boating, fishing, swimming and hiking.
We are located in the center of Higganum, where you find 2 restaurants, a pizza place, pharmacy, hardware, and a grocery store.
We are a 20 minutes drive from the Connecticut shoreline and a 2 hour drive to either New York or Boston.

Le quartier

Within a 5-10 minute walk from the Spiritof76 House lies the Higganum Reservoir, or, as the people of Higganum call it lovingly, THE RES.
The Higganum Reservoir gives us the pleasure of fishing, swimming and watching the local grey heron fly by.
Hours: Year-round, dawn to dusk, Free Access
Handicap Accessible: Fishing platform Founding Date: 2003
The original dam was constructed in 1868 by the 2 brothers George M. and Thomas J. Clark of the Higganum Manufacturing Company called the Clark Company. Their firm, later known as Clark Cutaway Harrow, was one of Higganum's most successful industries, produced an extensive line of farm equipment including 400 types of plows, disk harrows, cider presses, hay spreaders and carriage jacks. The factory, located at the site of the now empty Rossi lumberyard, was powered by water from the reservoir and Candlewood Hill and Bible Rock Brooks. The factory burned in the early 20th century but the dam and reservoir remained until its 2003 reconstruction as Higganum Reservoir State Park. The new dam is 20 feet high and has a walkway which allows you to gaze at the water rushing over an old stone spillway down into a beautiful clear brook.
Watershed Area: 6.6 Square Miles
Lake Area: 32 Acres
Higganum Reservoir State Park covers 137 acres. Meandering trails through the woods surrounding the lake are ideal for short hikes and mountain biking.


We are about 100 miles northeast from Midtown Manhattan.
Commuter trains travel from Grand Central Terminal to New Haven and Shoreline East trains connect to Old Saybrook.

The bedroom was cozy and charming, and had beautiful light. . The bathroom was specious. Clark was present and took care of our needs. It was unfortunate that the other guests who shared the common space was a group of young people who were loud and very inconsiderate. Clarke was very apologetic. We're sure the next time we stay it will be more pleasant.

Clark was very helpful and found me a cell phone plug I could use when mine was broken. He was very pleasant and accommodating. The living room for your own use is very large and the bedroom has lots of light and is very quiet.

Der Gastgeber hat uns tel. informiert, dass er in einer kurzen Zeit nicht daheim ist, damit wir nicht vor verschlossener Tür stehen,sehr nett. - Wir waren bei der Ankunft leider etwas enttäuscht, weil das Haus nicht so weiss war, wir auf dem Inseratebild. Das Frühstück war für amerik. Verhältnisse gut, der Kaffeetisch war ansprechend mit Porzellangeschirr gedeckt, die Bagels ausreichend und guter Kaffee. Clark war sehr nett, morgens haben wir uns etwas unterhalten u. somit mehr über Land u. Leute erfahren. Das neue Badezimmer am 1/2-Bettzimmer im Erdgeschoss war total renoviert, gross u. geräumig. Die Umgebung ums Haus war total ruhig. Eine historische Unterkunft für Globetrotter, die aber ein eigenes Auto haben müssen

Clark and his wife couldn't have been more gracious. Their house is very old and unique and just exudes history. The whole stay was a delight. Oh, and the bathroom was huge and fantastic.
