"My husband and I and our four sons wanted some real family time before half of the kids jetted off to college. We explored a number of properties in western Connecticut. The innkeeper for the Amselhaus was incredibly friendly and communicative from the very start and we felt welcome before we even walked in the door. Once there, we felt instantly at home. I can honestly say I have never stepped into a vacation rental and felt as instantly at home and comfortable. We stayed in the north house which was perfect for our family. There were fresh cookies for all of us, coffee for the making in the morning, all the kitchen items one would need as well as a book of information about where we could eat out and activities we could take part in in the area. We sat on the porch and watched the river, the kids played croquet and "chilled out" in the living room watching old Sponge Bob episodes in the evening. (We don't have cable TV at home so this was a treat for them....even the older ones.) Every part of the trip was made special by the accommodations. And the review written about the comfortable beds were right on. We slept in absolute comfort. We are all looking forward to coming back again and my husband and I are entertaining the idea of an anniversary trip for just the two of us.
There are many great activities to take part in including Kent Falls down the road and a mining museum. There are restaurants and even some that deliver to the Amselhaus.
If you are looking for a comfortable place to come with family or just for a couple, I can not rate this place more enthusiastically. My only fear is as word gets around about this gem, we wont be able to book it."

"We loved our vacation week in Clinton. The house was in a very quiet neighborhood with little traffic. It was a great neighborhood for walking and it was very easy to take our kayaks down to the beach and explore the area. People were extremely friendly. The second floor with the kitchen and open area was perfect for our family. We had plenty of room and loved sitting out on the upper deck, watching the kayaks and paddleboards in the inlet across from the house while eating our dinner or having cocktails. The kitchen had great appliances, plenty of dishes, glasses, and cookware, and a gas grill outdoors. Very convenient to the outlets, grocery stores, restaurants, and of course, Dunkin Donuts. We're looking forward to returning in the future. Reid was very responsive to my questions prior to our stay and very helpful. Overall, a great experience!"

"My family and I rented this cottage during Labor Day Weekend for a little get-together, and it was the perfect location! It's right on the beach, plenty of space. The cottage was clean and definitely had that feel as if it was "home." Neighbors were all very friendly. Wifi included, plenty of chairs inside and on the beach, including a picnic table. In addition to this being a great rental, Elly is a wonderful owner! Very accommodating, such as with parking spaces, and just for anything we needed or had questions about. It was also a pleasure meeting her husband! I highly recommend this cottage and working with Elly and her family!!! :)"

"We needed a house last minute, and when we called George he answered his phone and got us all set up. Then we loved it! George took care of our firewood (even though it was early in the season - us southerners weren't used to the chill) and made sure we had everything we needed. I ended up leaving a couple of items at the house, and he promptly mailed them to me. The house has no food items - so think about that when planning to cook - but the kitchen is neat and clean and well stocked with dishes/pots/etc. The town is beautiful - lots of lovely homes, a fun Main Street for shopping, etc. We loved the remodel on the farm house! So well done! We enjoyed easy day drives to Yale/New Haven and New York City."
