  • Peaceful getaway

    "My husband and I stayed here for a month, and loved every minute. The owners are accommodating and friendly. The decor is cozy, warm, and inviting. The kitchen is well stocked and fun to cook in. We grilled on the patio many times and cut fresh herbs from the little herb garden right outside the door. We spent a lot of time at Twin Lakes, only a five minute drive away. The gardens are fabulous and so well tended. I took many naps on the screened in porch and we ate many meals out there with friends. We also hosted a large dinner party and there was plenty of space for everyone. The cable and wifi were reliable and very useful. One of my favorite things was walking down to the neighboring farm stand for produce, eggs, and flowers. So charming and convenient! I would highly recommend this property!"

  • Very, very happy with this decision

    "This house was compact, clean, convenient - a delight in every way. We even managed okay with just one bath and seven people. Very near a great beach (short walking distance). And very convenient to the things we like to do as a family: Mystic Seaport; miniature golf at Saybrook Point; Gillette's Castle; Chester ferry; Essex steam train; Johnny Ad's restaurant in Old Saybrook - and especially the Deep River Fife & Drum Corps Muster on the 19th (always the 3rd Saturday in July). Grew up nearby but have lived in Texas for 20 years - and definitely will use this house as a great place for a "base of operations" when visiting the East or coming back again for the Muster."

  • Great family vacation on the CT shoreline

    "We booked this in July 2014 and enjoyed a week at 'Little White Top', named after the rocky reef area that surrounds the point. Everyone in the family loved it ... quiet, quaint, a genuine old school gem of a seasonal home with a fantastic protected waterfront location. I kayaked daily, including a couple of longer trips up the nearby river and across the open water to the Falkner Island lighthouse which is now a bird sanctuary. It's a 3 mile crossing so not for the casual kayaker or rough windy days. But there are many great places to kayak to for all skill levels. The coastline here is great to explore with 2 beautiful parks in the area one just a 10 min paddle (or bike ride), beaches, and you can also paddle as far as the Thimble Islands on a nice day. The house was perfect for us with plenty of bedrooms, and the two half baths plus nice shower accessed from the backyard. No TV was great, and nicely balanced by the rock solid WiFi connection. Kitchen had everything we needed and was a pleasure to cook in. Nice to have the 5 gallon drinking water supplies available. We swam both off the rocks and off the little beach just 4 doors down, where you could also keep kayaks if you prefer to launch from a beach. If you swim off the rocks it helps to use water shoes, as it's slippery. The screened porch is fantastic and we spent many a family night there having dinner and playing board games. The view across the bay is great, particularly around July 4th when lots of fireworks are viewable. Just loved it, and the owners were great too, very friendly and easy to work with. Highly recommended, we hope to come back!"

  • Great Weekend

    "This is the second time we stayed here. It is a wonderful home with quiet surroundings. The back deck is perfect for coffee in the morning or wine in the evening. There are two kayaks to enjoy from he back dock. We have already booked for a week next year. The Owner is great to deal with and very helpful. We highly recommend."
