Property description

'Awesome Cottage! Great Owner!
Absolutely loved this house and will definitely plan on staying here again! My husband is originally from Connecticut and his entire family still lives there. Traditionally we stay with family when we visit but I decided to rent a house this trip so we could entertain and have everyone over. This house was charming and very comfortable. It was my mother in laws 80th birthday and I had about 25 family members over for a dinner party. Every person who entered the house commented on what a terrific cottage it was. Having the upstairs loft was a perfect space for my son to have his privacy and a place to relax. He (and I) loved having the wireless internet connection that worked great! The outdoor area was very private and the deck was a wonderful space to hang out and kick back. Everyone really enjoyed the art work throughout the house and commented that it provided warmth and character to the cottage. Lastly I want to share my comments on the owner Yvette, she was very prompt in her responses to me and a real pleasure to work with through the rental process. Yvette thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us, it was the most memorable visit to Connecticut that our family has ever had. Take care, my best, Julianna (This was the first time I ever rented a home online or used the Home Away site, it was a great experience!)'


Response

I have been renting my cottage since 2006. I own the lot next door, a tiny wooded lot, so the back yard is very private. The house is on a private dirt home has a large deck, front porch, fireplace, I provide linens, spices, paper towels, trash bags.

This is the home I raised my boys in. It was always filled with love....

Our Beach house is tucked away in a quiet private Connecticut shoreline neighborhood. Bike or flip-flop to our private beach and fishing pier. Our Cottage boasts a large, private, yard that affords lively games of horseshoes or croquet. Nap or read in a hammock or relax with a cold refreshment under the gigantic trees. Back deck offers a picnic table and grill for hotdogs, hamburgers or lobster.

The Old Saybrook Town beach is Amazing and within biking distance. The 'Kate' offers sophisticated entertainment. Penny Lane Pub is a lively Irish watering hole and Dock and Dine is situated on the waterfront for sea-fare dining. Stroll downtown and browse the plethora of Antique Stores and Seaside Treasure Shops where Katherine Hepburn was often spotted.

The area...
Experience New England’s shoreline year round at one of Old Saybrook’s most desirable and family friendly areas. Spend the day basking in the sun at the Saybrook Manor Association private beach club, have your children playing at the club's playground, enjoy all sort of social events, or go for a change to one of the 2 beaches just a five-minutes walk away.

Need a break from the beach ? Stop to dine at some fine restaurants nearby. Travel just a little further and visit Mystic Aquarium, Mystic Seaport, take a ride with your kids across the countryside, see Beautiful New England the old-fashioned way on the Essex Historic steam train, enjoy a cruise on the Connecticut River or enjoy an evening at the Mohegan Casino. Peddle along the ocean side at sunset, head to the shops along Main Street or take a ten-minute drive to the shopping large outlets in Westbrook and Clinton.
