  • Wonderful abode

    "This little barn is delightful and my husband, teenage son and I really appreciated our five nights here. The place was very comfortable, tastefully decorated, very peaceful with lovely views. Saw wild turkeys in the field beyond! Was there for parent's weekend at a nearby prep school, and this made the perfect base to operate from. We didn't get to spend much time just enjoying the barn because we were out most of the time, but it would be a nice place to kick back and read, write and relax. The owner was very helpful and great to communicate with and kindly accommodated changes to our planned arrival and departure dates. Only hitch was that internet was out during our stay; we didn't let the owner know until after we departed, but I am confident it would have been fixed lickety-split if we had. The area is beautiful."

  • wonderful getaway!

    "We stayed here with our kids and cousins. Such beautiful accommodations and the lake is great for swimming/ boating/ and relaxing. Make sure you stroll down the road to the local tavern/restaurant for an amazing dinner and drinks. Highly recommend staying at this great lake house!"

  • Love the house, perfect for a large group

    "This is the second time we've stayed here and it's a great house. Our group of 12 adults and 4 kids in the main house plus another couple in the newly refurbished studio apartment in the barn all had plenty of room. The kitchen is well set up and the dining room comfortably seats a group of 15. The living room is comfortable and flows well so people in the kitchen are still connected to the group in the living room. We are planning to go back next year!"

  • Great Location!

    "The location provided the opportunity to walk to the (free) Town Beach, many restaurants (Michael's Dairy for ice cream was fabulous), Dunkin Donuts, and the Eugene O'Neil house. We were close by car to Ocean Beach, Mystic Seaport, and many historic sites in New London. The owners very thoughtfully provided a free pass to Ocean Beach. The house itself suited our needs perfectly. The backyard accommodated 20 people for an informal luncheon and the front porch was ideal for quiet conversation. The eat in kitchen was a gathering spot every morning. We enjoyed the feeling of moving into "grandmother's house" with a good variety of books, games, and toys around for all ages. We were however, disappointed with a variety of housekeeping issues. The place had obviously not had a good thorough cleaning in quite a while. Cleaning supplies were not well organized, making it difficult for us to clean during our stay and at check out. It took a day of searching to find the cables for the DVD player. While we appreciate having basic condiments and supplies left from previous tenants (we ourselves left dish liquid for the next tenants), so much had been left in the cabinets and refrigerator it was difficult to find space for the food we had brought. Most of our food had to be left on the counter as there was no cabinet space available. Overall, the dust and cobwebs as well as other obvious issues, made it clear that the house had not been thoroughly cleaned before our arrival. In conclusion - we loved the location and ambiance of the house and would probably stay here again. We give it Five Stars for location and 3 1/2 Stars for Housekeeping."
