Town of Litchfield, the Litchfield Hills
The Town of Litchfield in Litchfield County is a scenic country town, nestled in the rolling green hills of Northwestern Connecticut. Truly an historical town, recently celebrating its tri-centennial, it is where George Washington met with Colonel Tallmadge during the Revolutionary War. History is treasured here, as evidenced by the meticulously restored homes and the classic village greens. But at the same time, proximity to Manhattan keeps this corner of Connecticut contemporary. The Litchfield Hills are a popular escape for city folk, who in turn have helped raise the bar for restaurants and accommodations in the area — turning what has long been a destination for antiquers into a haven for foodies, as well. Its shops and restaurants, set around the historic green and immediate area, contribute to the 18th century New England town atmosphere. And, of course, the beautiful rural setting that includes Bantam Lake and the White Memorial Conservation, offers many outdoor activities.
The Litchfield Inn, centrally located in Litchfield, right off the main road (Rt. 202) with high visibility, offers easy access to the Festival site, along with beautiful views and a sense of historic and classic New England charm.
