  • Wonderful family vacation!

    "Do not hesitate to book this fantastic home! We had lovely family vacation for 18, ages 4-75. Fun for all! Easy drive to Stony Creek CT. Easy to park your car for few days. Quick ferry to the house. Home is beautiful. All bedrooms and baths are nicely done. Nice linens/bedding. Great, stocked kitchen (no microwave, no biggie). Wonderful decks for coffee and full meals while watching the sun set. Great little beach with kayaks. Plenty of room to roam, rocks to climb, places to relax. We took the Thimble Islands tour with Capt. Bob (fantastic), we ate dinner one night in Branford at Nataz, 10 minutes away, we sailed for few hours with Eric Treu at Sailworks (worth every penny), we rented 19ft boat for a week from docks in Guilford (totally worth it). One of the best family trips ever! Jeff was so accommodating and easy to work with. Rent it!"

  • wonderful getaway!

    "We stayed here with our kids and cousins. Such beautiful accommodations and the lake is great for swimming/ boating/ and relaxing. Make sure you stroll down the road to the local tavern/restaurant for an amazing dinner and drinks. Highly recommend staying at this great lake house!"

  • Perfect location for end-of-summer fun!

    "We had another week of vacation before Labor Day and didn't want to face a day-long drive up or down I-95 from NYC. Luckily, we stumbled upon this listing for Ennis Cottage and it was available! The beautiful cottage is immaculately kept and very comfortable with everything you need -- and just steps from the Long Island Sound. Ron and Bernie were incredibly welcoming to me, my husband, and my 4 year old, ready with beach toys, chairs, towels, and a wagon to help get our vacation started. We spent most of the time on the beach playing in the sand and water. Later in the week, we went to the outlets for school clothes, took a tour of the Thimble Islands, picked berries at a local farm, and went to a local carnival. We loved the lobster at Lenny's, long walks along the water, and exploring the lovely town of Branford."

  • Great family vacation on the CT shoreline

    "We booked this in July 2014 and enjoyed a week at 'Little White Top', named after the rocky reef area that surrounds the point. Everyone in the family loved it ... quiet, quaint, a genuine old school gem of a seasonal home with a fantastic protected waterfront location. I kayaked daily, including a couple of longer trips up the nearby river and across the open water to the Falkner Island lighthouse which is now a bird sanctuary. It's a 3 mile crossing so not for the casual kayaker or rough windy days. But there are many great places to kayak to for all skill levels. The coastline here is great to explore with 2 beautiful parks in the area one just a 10 min paddle (or bike ride), beaches, and you can also paddle as far as the Thimble Islands on a nice day. The house was perfect for us with plenty of bedrooms, and the two half baths plus nice shower accessed from the backyard. No TV was great, and nicely balanced by the rock solid WiFi connection. Kitchen had everything we needed and was a pleasure to cook in. Nice to have the 5 gallon drinking water supplies available. We swam both off the rocks and off the little beach just 4 doors down, where you could also keep kayaks if you prefer to launch from a beach. If you swim off the rocks it helps to use water shoes, as it's slippery. The screened porch is fantastic and we spent many a family night there having dinner and playing board games. The view across the bay is great, particularly around July 4th when lots of fireworks are viewable. Just loved it, and the owners were great too, very friendly and easy to work with. Highly recommended, we hope to come back!"
