"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!"

"The cottage is exceptionally comfortable in a very comfortable area. It's a good place to go on walks because the beach is not far away.
The facilities are very neat and well-kept. There is a treacherous step as you enter the front door, but it is only treacherous if you do not follow the well-placed instructions to watch your step.
Car access works best for getting back toward New Haven. Also, there are a good selection of grocery stores just outside the comfortable walking distance for many people.
This cottage would work very well for people who have relatives or friends nearby who do have enough living space to fit in the guests. It is a great place."

"We spent a week at the Granite Lodge during our annual pilgrimage to Connecticut. Since we relocated to Michigan 12 years ago, we try to get back to Connecticut to visit family and friends every summer. In the past, we have always rented a cottage on the beach, but decided to try something different this year. We found that the Granite Lodge was an even better option than a beach cottage as it provided us with a lovely private retreat and our choice of several beaches close by. We absolutely loved the property as did everyone who joined us for a 30th birthday celebration for our daughter. The house is so warm and inviting with a magical feel. The gourmet kitchen is exquisite for both cooking and dining. The landscaping is brilliantly designed and the swimming pool is a masterpiece of craftsmanship. We also met the owners who were very nice and quite helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute we spent at the Granite Lodge and wished we could have stayed longer."

"This is a beautiful home in a quiet lovely neighborhood sitting on the edge of Long Island Sound. I rented this home for my daughters graduation/family reunion and it could not have been better. The owner Barbara is wonderful to work with, very responsive and professional. My family loves to cook and this house comes with everything a cook could ask for. There is plenty refrigerator space, prep space, cooking area and a large dining room for everyone to sit down and enjoy a meal together. The house is very nicely decorated, very comfortable beds, beautiful outside lawn for barbaquing and and having a drink watching the boats go by. If you have a reason to stay in the area and need multiple bedrooms, this home will magnify your wonderful memories of your time there. Don't pass it up!"
