  • 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."

  • Enjoyed Our Stay

    "Family vacation at this home was great; very quiet neighborhood, plenty of room for all of us (7 adults and 3 children)! Tons of bath towels! There were 2 TVs in the main living space which was great for the children to watch their shows while the adults watched theirs. A couple of the bedrooms also had tvs. Yard was big enough for the children to play in and with the use of lawn chairs and our beach chairs, we made a "fence" so the children and their ball did not go over the "cliff". Met a friendly neighbor who gave us insight into restaurants and beach areas. This house is not on what I would call a beach, there is no sand and although you could get into the water from the shore, it was difficult for the children (4 and younger) who ended up with many scratches, bruises and bleeding knees. Husband and children loved going out in the kayak! We all loved spending time sitting on the porch overlooking the Sound. It would be helpful if there was a book of directions to restaurants and/or menus, directions to local grocery areas and local beaches. Would also be helpful if you had a cabinet or two available for guests to put their food and kitchen items in. Fran was very easy to work with and very accommodating! Thanks Fran!"

  • 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."

  • Excellent Vacation Home

    "We reserved the home for two weeks in mid June. Without a doubt, this was the best vacation home we have ever rented. The location is great, being only about a 5 block walk to the town beach and picnic grove. Branford is only about a 5 mile drive to New Haven. So lots to do and see. The town is long-established with beautiful homes, trees, and granite rock formations everywhere. Numerous marinas full of all types of boats and great sea food restaurants. The house has been well-maintained with updated baths and kitchen. The owners are quite thoughtful and take obvious pride in their property. You will not be disappointed"

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.
