"We spent a week at the Granite Lodge during our annual pilgrimage to Connecticut. Since we relocated to Michigan 12 years ago, we try to get back to Connecticut to visit family and friends every summer. In the past, we have always rented a cottage on the beach, but decided to try something different this year. We found that the Granite Lodge was an even better option than a beach cottage as it provided us with a lovely private retreat and our choice of several beaches close by. We absolutely loved the property as did everyone who joined us for a 30th birthday celebration for our daughter. The house is so warm and inviting with a magical feel. The gourmet kitchen is exquisite for both cooking and dining. The landscaping is brilliantly designed and the swimming pool is a masterpiece of craftsmanship. We also met the owners who were very nice and quite helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute we spent at the Granite Lodge and wished we could have stayed longer."

"First, this house is beautiful and perfectly located for a week at the beach. The owner met me when I arrived, gave me a tour of the house and reviewed the all of the essentials. The size of the house worked perfectly for my friends and family that came and went throughout the week. When we weren't at the beach, we were on the deck looking out at the ocean. Marvelous view. I would highly recommend this house and plan on returning next year."

"We enjoyed this beautiful home on the Connecticut shore for a week of family celebrations. It could not have been more perfect. Very convenient to Stonington, Mystic, Watch Hill carousel and the grocery store just down the road. We also catered a delicious birthday dinner locally, Gourmet Galley of North Stonington. Their home was wonderful for our celebration with all 10 of us together. Our grandchildren enjoyed the beach a bike ride or short walk from the house and the bunk room was great. Susan, thank you for helping us celebrate my 70 years. Jane"

"My Family & I (12 of us altogether - mix of little ones, teens and adults) were lucky enough to stay at Suzanne and Dan's place in New London in July 2015. Suzanne met us at the house to give the tour. It was perfect for ALL of us with PLENTY of room and privacy...similar to a mini hotel with all of our own family suites. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, utensils, etc., but if you needed anything, you could go 10 mins down the street to a shop & stop (open 24hrs). Because we were a large group, we cooked out on the grill EVERY NIGHT and had our dinner and drinks on the (very private) deck. I think this was my favorite time : ) chilling at the end of the day before heading down to Ocean beach (2 block walk) for the nightly events. The game room provided a ton of entertainment for the kids (all ages) every night. Mystic is so close (15mins) and for a more wavy beach, we ended up at Misquamicut RI Beach ($20/day) for boogy boarding. Highly recommend it, the only thing we couldn't find for the beach was a sun umbrella-they could have had one, but we didn't bug Suzanne or Dan for one. They had everything else though...towels, chairs, sunscreen, beach toys, etc.
This house is a 5 Star for us - it was perfect in so many ways. Great space, great location, great quiet, friendly neighborhood and neighbors. Someone in another post mentioned ants in the kitchen...yes, we saw a few around the water faucet, (my home is no different) but I don't believe it was about any food that was left-atleast not in our case...it certainly wasn't bothersome or an issue at all (2 or 3 the whole week).
We would DEFINITELY return back here for more morning/nightly walks on the beach, exploring more CT fun and just being able to relax in this wonderful home ; ) TY Suzanne and Dan for hosting our family in New London."
