Recent Connecticut reviews

  • Charming, relaxing, but limited beach amenities

    "We just spent 16 nights in this charming cottage. The photos and descriptions in the HomeAway/VRBO listing are accurate, and the owners have furnished the place very nicely. The patio is especially nice, for morning coffee and evening outdoor meals (with fresh herbs available in pots). The kitchen is very well stocked with pots, pans and everything you could possible need for cooking. The shed has lots of beach-related supplies. The WiFi is unusually fast, with download speeds of 27 Mbps. The neighborhood is great for walking and folks are friendly. There are a few negatives, however. Be aware that the cottage is in the Cedar Crest Association, not the Chapman Beach Association. You only have access to the Cedar Crest beach, which is approximately 35 steps wide and 9 steps deep, at mid-tide; in other words, it’s a very small beach space. We ended up going to the Hammonasset State Park beach, which is 12 miles away. We have an annual pass to the park, but if you don’t have the pass, it costs $9/day if you are a CT resident and $15/day if a non-resident ($13/$22 on weekends). Also, there is no gas grill, just the charcoal Weber version and the television is not HD and is pretty much basic cable, which is unusual for a rental at this price level. Overall, we had a fun and relaxing experience and the owners were easy to work with."

  • Marvelous Mystic Get-away

    "I have 5 sisters, each of us with individual needs and wants. We wanted to go somewhere close to drive too and shop and gamble all in one area. Mystic was our choice. Well this was a perfect set up for all of us. The elevator was a plus for my one sister who cannot really do stairs due to health issues. The kitchen was well equipped for the ones that enjoy cooking and the view was spectacular for those who enjoy looking at the seaport. The owner was very easy to talk to and very accommodating and always available. Every detail in this home was thought out, right down to the motion lights on all sets of stairs. Plenty of bathrooms, especially with 6 women in the house. Location also was a plus, very quiet and peaceful area."

  • Summer Vacation

    "Great time of year to visit Candlewood Lake. The private beach area was never busy and boating was pleasurably not hectic. I recommend a visit to Chicken Rock for a nice jump and the rope swing nearby. The house is in a quiet friendly neighborhood. Not luxurious, but definitely cozy!"

  • PERFECTION!

    "Our goal each year is to try a house on a lake in a different state. This place has changed a family tradition and we will be returning!!!..hopefully again and again! Perfectly relaxing, at times it was like we had the entire lake to ourselves. The house is cozy, had more than expected, cupboards so well stocked, and Carol is wonderful and more than accommodating! We couldnt have asked for a better week. Kids loved the boats, fishing, floating, swimming, and their own space on the top floor was awesome!! Wicked comfy king size bed too! Slept like a baby. Thanks so much, and see you next year!!"
