Property description

This lovely and expansive family home is located in the desirable east end of Mason's Island. There are sweeping views of Long Island Sound, Enders Island and Fisher's Island. Sailboats and sea life abound. If inspired one can move from sitting on the deck to paddling a kayak in these protected waters in a matter of seconds. It takes about an hour to circumnavigate the island in it's entirety.

This is a waterfront home, not a beachfront home, as the CT shoreline is quite rocky, but there is very nice swimming off the dock when the tide is not at its lowest. Williams Beach, great for small children is about a mile away and the RI beaches are pretty close, about a 30 minute ride. Enjoy the outdoor shower to rinse off the salt water after a swim.

The home is available to rent for several weeks in the summer and much of the off season. The spring and fall can be spectacular; snowy weekends in the winter besides being beautiful are peaceful and serene. For this reason many groups return year after year.

This house is ideal for for families who are interested in a relaxed setting for a vacation or long weekend. It is also well suited for groups gathering to celebrate a graduation, wedding, special birthday or anniversary. The home is close to the Mystic Seaport Museum and the Mystic Aquarium, the casinos, wineries and the Rhode Island beaches. There are two golf courses with public access within a ten mile drive. Often ignored are the excellent fishing opportunities, both party boats and charters are available locally. Catches include fluke, striped bass, bluefish, sea bass but also tuna and shark for those willing to venture offshore.

Due to the residential nature of the neighborhood this home is not suitable for groups who are gathering for an extended party or 'formal' events such as weddings. Parking is limited to 4 cars.

Although there is a dock, guests are not permitted to dock or moor their boats there. Jet skis or motorized inflatable boats are also not permitted. The dock is just for swimming purposes (and fishing for crabs). Two kayaks are available to explore the shoreline and surrounding islands. Fishing from the kayaks (although not 'fishing kayaks') can be a thrill.

For the appropriate group this is a wonderful property. As there is no request for a security deposit and to insure the fit is good for the owner and renter alike, each prospective guest needs to be in touch with the owner by phone prior to securing a rental agreement.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

Why the Owner Chose Mystic:
This home was purchased largely based on location, two hours from Boston, two and a half from NYC and one hour from Hartford-and on the water. Our family has routinely gathered for special events. Due to this central location travel is manageable even for a short term stay. The home has now moved on to generation two and continues to serve the original purpose, giving the family an easy place to congregate-in an idyllic spot. Although cold, winter weekends can be spectacular.
