As a travel destination, Litchfield County strikes all the right notes. It’s sophisticated and easy-going. Outdoorsy and cultural. There are restaurants and cafes, art galleries and boutiques, cute villages to explore, farms and vineyards to visit, glorious hiking trails, watersports, and cycling routes. The only kink in the works? For years, the area has been hampered by its lack of overnight accommodations, especially during the high season. That’s about to change. This summer the region will welcome a number of new—and newly renovated—properties, a win-win for visitors and residents alike. “It’s wonderful to see all these new hotels,” says Stephen Brighenti, a hospitality industry veteran and owner of POSH Pads luxury home rentals. “It’s a phenomenal story of change that’s 30 years in the making.”

When Dr. Tamara Sachs examines a patient in her New Milford office, she looks beyond recognizing and treating the symptoms of their condition. Think of her more like a detective bent on tracking down clues to the root cause of the patient’s illness to determine the best path toward healing. Sachs began practicing in New Milford more than 30 years ago after working for several years as an emergency room physician in New Haven. For a decade she was a primary care doctor in New Milford. In 1998, her focus shifted from conventional medicine toward functional medicine, a model that offers a more individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach, allowing patients and practitioners to collaborate in addressing the underlying causes of disease and promoting optimal wellness.
