  • Perfect

    "This house is perfect, perfect, perfect. beautiful house, could-not-be-beat location (directly in front of the beach), and completely easy to be in with a toddler -- nothing to break. We are very grateful we got to enjoy it."

  • 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!"

  • Relaxing Long Weekend

    "My wife and I stayed for a little bit less than a week during the Labor Day weekend. The house is bigger than it looks on the pictures. It is well maintained and had everything we needed for our stay. The host, Mary, is very nice and accommodating. The shore is a short walk away and if you don't want go to the beach, the house has a sizable backyard where you can just relax in one of the beach chairs. There is a seafood store with a great selection of fresh fish and seafood around the corner, a super market a five minute drive away and a couple of restaurants across the street. Things to do include local attractions such as Thimble Islands cruise, drive on the scenic I-146 and visiting local historic villages such as Essex. We enjoyed our stay very much and felt quite relaxed at the end. I hope we could stay longer."

  • Wonderful Stay!

    "We were completely pleased with our stay. We wanted a place to celebrate the Christmas holiday near my elderly mom, with family members coming to stay together in the house. So we needed a place that would be special even when staying indoors a lot! It indeed was beautiful, spacious, comfortable, very clean, and we really enjoyed the colonial theme. And lovely to walk on the beach, cold though it was. The owners were very gracious and friendly."

Branford Travel Tips

Branford Rentals Provide the Perfect Connecticut Escape

With panoramic views off the coast and serene harbors, why wouldn’t you consider Branford rentals for your next family vacation? Connecticut travel should be filled with fun, beauty, and relaxation, and that is exactly what you get with any Branford lodging choice. Historic homes, charming shops, lovely restaurants, and so much more fill the area which why so many travelers stop in Branford each year.

Do Not Miss the History of Branford Rentals

As you will quickly come to know, Connecticut travel will always incorporate a bit of New England history. One thing not to miss is the historic Town Green, in the middle of Branford. Many Branford lodging accommodations are within walking distance of the green, which is surrounded by some of the historic homes dating back to the 17th century. You should also make a point to visit the Harrison House on Main Street. You will be impressed with its immaculate gardens and the taste of days past when you cross its threshold.

Beautiful Scenery by Branford Lodging

The views are not only spectacular along the coast, where many Branford rentals are situated, but further inland as well. More than 3,500 acres of woodlands and salt marshes fill the area and attract those families staying in Branford lodging. Enjoy your time kayaking, hiking, and just being outside in beautiful Branford. If you would prefer a scenic drive, try out Scenic Route 146. The winding road allows you to see some of the most beautiful scenes for any leg of Connecticut travel.

Connecticut Travel Is Incomplete without a Visit the Thimble Islands and Stony Creek

During your stay in Branford rentals, be sure to spend a day in Stony Creek and the Thimble Islands. Stony Creek is a charming little area which is oozing with individuality and appeal. The quiet harbor, small shops, and tiny cafes make for a relaxing escape from the growing Branford area. Just off the shore are the Thimble Islands, which re really just a chain of sea rock islands. Some are large enough to be inhabited while others are too tiny. There are plenty of boat tours to take you around them.
