Recent Connecticut property reviews

  • Beautiful home; beautiful views!

    "We are from Missouri and met a NY daughter and a Boston son at this home for Easter weekend. The house needs a house number on the mailbox but once you've found it, it's all easy and feels likes a world away even though it is just off the "highway" between Mystic and Stonington. All the rooms are large and all the bedrooms have beautiful views. Even the bunking room, which could sleep at least 8 in twin beds, has a view because there are gorgeous views from the front and the back of the property. The main room is a combination kitchen, dining, living room and could entertain a large number of people. All doors from this GREAT room open onto a wonderful deck and an outdoor fireplace. There is a staging room off the kitchen too with an extra dishwasher, which we used after Easter dinner - another plus. Susan was very helpful with recommendations for restaurants and we highly recommend Bravo Bravo as our favorite. Great drinks; great food; nice atmosphere; nice size. Much better than the popular oyster house across the street. We did both of the recommended hikes on Susan's list and loved them both. Very different too! We also bought seafood in Stonington and had the best chowder and scallops ever! It's low key here at this time of year. I'm sure it's quite busy in summer and Mystic is cute. There's one grocery store - but a pretty good one. Alcohol is not sold in grocery stores but there's a well-stocked liquor store a couple miles from the property. Relaxing. You might want to bring earplugs. We did go ahead and play with the thermostat just a bit because we thought the setting was too cool for us. The picturesque light house, viewable from the house in the sound, does have a regular warning horn and if you are a light sleeper, you might hear it at night without your plugs. Lovely, lovely place. So great that owners are sharing it! Thank you to Susan for generous hospitality!"

  • Visiting from London

    "While we live in London now we wanted to come back to CT to visit family and friends. We found this adorable cottage on VRBO and were thrilled with all it had to offer. First, Rowayton is fabulous. With a short walk to the village and beach it offers a very relaxed, beach-side community feel. There are many wonderful restaurants in town and a convenient grocery store. The cottage allowed our family to enjoy our return in comfort and style. It was clean, comfortable, and charming. Every amenity was available. We had our friends come for cocktails one evening and then we all walked over to one of favorite restaurants. They actually didn't want to leave the cottage! The owner was so helpful and available for all inquires. Fresh cut flowers were displayed in the house! It was a real homecoming for us. We would highly recommend this beach bungalow for families visiting Rowayton."

  • Just Plain Perfect!!!

    "My wife and I rented this charming house as a base for our younger son's wedding activities in Noank and Groton Long Point. Staying with us were our older son, his wife, and his two children (ages five and seven). It was perfect! The description of the house is right on the button (see the other reviews). When we arrived, it was spotlessly clean and impeccably neat; and everything worked as it should. The house is very well appointed and the beds very comfortable indeed. The house is very conveniently located just a short walk from downtown Mystic, where we ate most of our non-wedding meals. The oysters at The Oyster Club were delicious (highly recommended), and I indulged myself with a pre-wedding shave (a real one!) and pedicure at The Salty Dog. Just a five-minute drive from Noank, a ten-minute drive from Groton Long Point made this house the location perfect. (A major grocery store was not too far away either.) The owners were a delight to work with. I recommend this property very highly."
