    "My husband and I are from East Windsor, CT. Last November we retired to Florida, knowing our daughter was to be married in South Windsor on September 6, 2014. With various friends and relatives coming for the wedding, we looked for a vacation rental that could accommodate not just us, but our other children, cousins and various friends on various nights. This property could not been more perfect. It is huge, with plenty of room to sleep a crowd! More than that though, it is a charming example of tasteful, high-end mid-century construction and decor which includes family photos that bring you back to to this family's life when the owners lived here years ago with their Mom and Dad. Little seems to have changed since the house was built in 1958, but that makes it all the more fantastic. I was immediately transported back to my childhood during the fifties and sixties. The kitchen is well equipped with retro yet fully functioning appliances including garbage disposal, double oven and dishwasher. There are four separate living spaces, some of which can double as sleeping quarters. Our family and our guests were enchanted by the beauty of this home, including the outdoor terrace, covered porch, stunning front entry, pastoral views and family treasures throughout. The dining room is nothing short of magnificent. The day after the wedding there were nine of us around the antique table having a family breakfast; and that beautiful table could have easily accommodated more. There are bikes and table games and a wonderful yard, all in a quiet country setting that also appears to be unchanged from years ago. I can't comment on the tv as we were all having too much fun to turn it on, but the wifi worked perfectly. My out-of-state company remarked repeatedly how awesome the house would be for a family reunion. We may follow up on that! As a last remark, the owner is pleasant and easy to work with. The day after we left she sent me an email stating she had already mailed us our security deposit. If you like humdrum hotel rooms that all look the same and provide the identical experience time after time, you probably should stick with that when visiting the Hartford area. However, if you want a truly memorable experience for you and your family, pass on hotel and go instead to Eve's Retreat! It is part comfy accommodation, part museum, and part nostalgic trip into the life of a family in an earlier time."

  • Perfect location for end-of-summer fun!

    "We had another week of vacation before Labor Day and didn't want to face a day-long drive up or down I-95 from NYC. Luckily, we stumbled upon this listing for Ennis Cottage and it was available! The beautiful cottage is immaculately kept and very comfortable with everything you need -- and just steps from the Long Island Sound. Ron and Bernie were incredibly welcoming to me, my husband, and my 4 year old, ready with beach toys, chairs, towels, and a wagon to help get our vacation started. We spent most of the time on the beach playing in the sand and water. Later in the week, we went to the outlets for school clothes, took a tour of the Thimble Islands, picked berries at a local farm, and went to a local carnival. We loved the lobster at Lenny's, long walks along the water, and exploring the lovely town of Branford."

  • Rooms with a View!

    "We rented this home during the US Coast Guard Academy Commencement week. The ocean front property listing is situated on a quiet tree lined road and (great for walks), and feels quiet and remote while enabling one to easy access to Mystic and New London. The Home is very large, with lots of room for guests. The home is very clean, well maintained with a nice laundry room. It was amazing to wake up and see the ocean from the bedroom window every morning and the deck was great for morning coffee. Nearly every window (including the kitchen) has a beautiful view! I would definitely recommend this home for rental and would love to visit again."
