Riverview Cottage is one of Mystic's finest waterfront locations. The house, boathouse, and barn are perched directly on the Mystic River. It includes 1.25 acres of quiet land with mature trees and is completely air conditioned. It is an ideal location for families who want a quiet refuge of kayaking and canoeing in close proximity to Mystic Seaport Museum, Mystic Aquarium, historic downtown Mystic, and the neighboring beaches of Rhode Island and the Mystic area. Riverview Cottage has a long, waterfront porch furnished with comfortable wicker and rockers as well as an even larger balcony above and a terrace adjoining the lower porch. The house is situated on a large tidal cove populated by osprey, herons, egrets, swans and ducks. A fragrant border of honeysuckle runs along the waterfront sometimes attracting hummingbirds when in bloom. It includes a full kitichen, well-stocked library and a comfortable studio-apartment over the detached garage. The property includes a large boathouse the owners use for storage.

About the owner: The house belongs to a local family that raised four children there. The family spent many years living and playing in this tranquil park-like setting.
Why the Owner Chose Mystic: Mystic is between New York and Boston and an easy trip to Providence, Hartford and New Haven yet it offers superb access to beaches, boating, local seafood and world class museums and entertainment.
The Unique Benefits at this House: In addition to canoeing, kayaking and birdwatching, the location is a favorite because it is on a scenic road near nature trails just above downtown Mystic and located near the Mystic Aquarium, and Mystic Seaport. This is a historic home.
