"If your looking for a quiet and elegant spot to gather 12 family members together of varying ages and interests, then you have found the spot. We spent a wonderful week in this lovely house enjoying each others company and relaxing in front of the ocean. Working out details with Barbara was easy and efficient and the photos of the house, the property and the area do not do it justice. There is plenty to do and see in the area and Central New York is accessible by train in 1 1/2 hours from New Haven. However, the best times were spent concocting meals in the modern kitchen and then enjoying them with much conversation and laughter around the large dinning table before moving to the covered porch to watch the sun set with coffee in hand. The time spent there will be talked about in our family for years to come!"

"Our family of 5 plus doggie spent a glorious week here. What an amazing piece of property, and an equally amazing house. Everything was spotless. The kitchen was a delight, so much room. The house itself is very large, there are plenty of places to spread out and relax. The log cabin feel and décor makes you feel instantly welcome. The grounds are park-like, your own private oasis. The owners were very helpful, kind and relaxed people. We took advantage of all Granite Lodge had to offer - from the fire pit [s'mores!], grilling, hot tub and pool. What a pool it was! We have young kids, the pool at the shallowest is 18", and 12 feet at the deepest. Something for everyone. My kids lived in that pool. We even went fishing at the little pond at the entrance. While a bit precarious for little kids, we gave it a try anyway - and we caught some fish! There's a beast of a turtle that lives in the pond too, he came up to say hello. The kids were thrilled. There is space to run around, although we never used the soccer ball we brought with us, the pool was just too big of a temptation. We felt like we were far and away from civilization, but Branford and Guilford are just minutes away. We explored a little bit, there's peach picking, a winery, a fabulous playground at Jacob's Beach. Tried the Chowder Pot based on another's guest's review, it was dynamite and quite reasonable. If you brought all supplies with you, you wouldn't find a reason to leave. But there is a supermarket close by, plus loads of farmers' stands dotted along Route 1. What a beautiful area of Connecticut, we're so delighted we discovered it. Can't wait to come back. Thanks Barbara and Joe!"

"We very much enjoyed the Branford house for a family gathering during the 2014 Yale commencement. We had 12 people coming from Colorado for it, and it was perfect. Plenty of room, and the backyard, with deck, bar-b-q, was great to have our daughter's friends and their parents over to celebrate. We were extremely happy with the manager who kept in touch with us, even though we made the reservation very early. Highly recommend it!"
