  • Perfect Weekend Escape!

    "We were three adult couples looking for a relaxing weekend getaway between Boston and NYC. This was the perfect place. The area is great -we stopped at some adorable small towns, went on a fabulous hike and loved exploring such a beautiful part of the state. The house itself is on a gorgeous piece of property on a pretty river with old trees and open fields. Picturesque. The house was perfect for us. There is a great big kitchen for cooking, big family room with fireplace and three very private bedrooms all with private baths. The owners were great communicators who were kind enough to allow not only us but our dog. I would love to come back (and probably will!) and would definitely recommend the house to anyone looking for a well decorated, clean and peaceful getaway."

  • A little slice of heaven

    "My family loved the 'cottage' on the water. Views from every window were fabulous. The location is private and quiet, and quite spectacular. We chose the location because it was half way for both of our adult children (NYC and Boston) who joined us on weekends. During the weekdays we went site seeing and visited nearby seaport towns along the Ct. coast. Shopping was fabulous at the outlet malls (less than 10 miles away). Old Saybrook is a quiet, less touristy town than some of its neighbors, but has great restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops, and a great yarn store! This is also a dog friendly town with several groomers if that service is needed. But, what we enjoyed most was just relaxing at the cottage, enjoying the sunrise and sunsets on the water, and talking long walks along the coast. It was just what we needed after a difficult 8 mos. deployed overseas. The cottage itself has a very nice, up-to-date renovated and well outfitted kitchen and renovated baths, and is comfortably and casually furnished. There were plenty of linens and towels. Cleaning supplies were available, as well as food staples left by previous tenants for use, and we left behind our unused items (ie coffee/tea etc.) for the next group. I would highly recommend this rental. (Time of year - early April)"

  • Peaceful and charming

    "We had a large group for Thanksgiving and the property was perfect. The kitchen had everything we needed, there was space for all, and the views were terrific. Given the weather, we most enjoying the large and festive living room fire place. The photos don't show the bathrooms, which were all very nice. The house is close to Mystic and the train station, and yet we felt like we were really away from it all because of the tranquil river setting. My son and his friends enjoyed canoeing, even though it was cold. I bundled up and enjoyed morning coffee on the deck. It's easy to imagine how nice this house would be in the summer. Paul was great to work with and the property was very well maintained. I hope to return soon!"

  • A madison couple.

    "We stayed here for 3 months while our next home was being renovated. Great location, and view in a comfortable beach cottage. The owner could not have been more responsive or cordial, which contributed greatly to our enjoyment. Impressively outfitted kitchen with very little left unspoken for. Would certainly stay there again."
