Our 200 lush wooded acres in the Litchfield hills of Connecticut has offered the perfect environment and accommodations to rehabilitate from drug and alcohol dependence for over 70 years. Marty Mann, the first woman to achieve sustained recovery through AA, recalled her first visit to High Watch with Bill W. in 1939: “There was something there, something that was really palpable; that you could feel, and every one of us felt it. To say that we fell in love with it is not to use the right terminology at all. We were engulfed. What is at the Farm was already at the Farm before we ever found it. It found us, in my opinion.” Bill W. is famously known for describing the spiritual atmosphere upon their arrival as being “so thick, you could cut it with a knife”.
That relaxing environment has been enhanced by our beautiful new accommodations.
A Respectful and Relaxing Stay
Today, “the Farm” resembles a country bed and breakfast. You can tour the finely appointed rooms or the spectacular post and beam barn housing the dining room. Even the White House circa 1743, which is home to our renowned chapel and library, has a wonderful feel. A stay at High Watch typically exceeds all expectations. We offer clean, beautiful accommodations along with respectful care and effective treatment. Our residents are the first to say that something very special happens here.
