"Ennis Cottage is a gem! Beautifully and thoughtfully decorated and equipped. Lovely gas fireplace to chase off the chills of the early spring. Large backyard space with table and chairs for al fresco dining. The owners are welcoming and friendly! So close to great Long Island Sound. Nice walk to Branford center. Would absolutely recommend this spot! Fabulous!!"

"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!"

"My family, consisting of 2 adults, teenage son (along with various friends) and family dog spent a wonderfully relaxing week at this perfect beach cottage.
The pictures are a completely accurate depiction of the property...the beach access is literally right across the street! Morning coffees, dining "al fresco", reading books and family game nights on the screened-in front porch were our favorite activities of the whole week!
The cottage is in a very family friendly neighborhood with great areas for walking, biking and kayaking. We look forward to our next vacation on beautiful Summer Island for relaxation and quality family-time!"

"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."
