Recent Connecticut reviews

  • A little slice of heaven

    "My family loved the 'cottage' on the water. Views from every window were fabulous. The location is private and quiet, and quite spectacular. We chose the location because it was half way for both of our adult children (NYC and Boston) who joined us on weekends. During the weekdays we went site seeing and visited nearby seaport towns along the Ct. coast. Shopping was fabulous at the outlet malls (less than 10 miles away). Old Saybrook is a quiet, less touristy town than some of its neighbors, but has great restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops, and a great yarn store! This is also a dog friendly town with several groomers if that service is needed. But, what we enjoyed most was just relaxing at the cottage, enjoying the sunrise and sunsets on the water, and talking long walks along the coast. It was just what we needed after a difficult 8 mos. deployed overseas. The cottage itself has a very nice, up-to-date renovated and well outfitted kitchen and renovated baths, and is comfortably and casually furnished. There were plenty of linens and towels. Cleaning supplies were available, as well as food staples left by previous tenants for use, and we left behind our unused items (ie coffee/tea etc.) for the next group. I would highly recommend this rental. (Time of year - early April)"

  • Spacious house in good location

    "We enjoyed our stay on Candlewood Lake while staying in this house. It is large enough to accommodate six to eight people. Our favorite room was the screened in porch which had a good view of the lake. The community beach is just a short walk from the house."

  • Idyllic

    "i·dyl·lic: extremely happy, peaceful, or picturesque. That's such a perfect word to describe our time in the Henkle House. Here's why: Location - the best thing about this place is the proximity to the beach. You are about 100 steps to the gate that gets you onto the private beach. The owner left us plenty of wrist bands that private beach goers must use. Ocean Beach Park is 25 ft to the right of the private beach so there is super easy access. Renovated house - the house has been recently renovated and belongs in the pages of a catalog. the owner went first class all the way - frontgate outdoor furniture, outdoor kitchen, pottery barn bedding, pier 1 accessories. I've never been in a rental that has been so carefully and beautifully decorated. So relaxing! Great for kids - Ocean Beach Park kept the kids easily entertained, cloudy or sunny. mini-golf, splash park, amusement rides, beach, playground, digging for crabs. At the end of each day, we stuck all five kids (mostly toddlers) upstairs to sleep on the 3rd floor. There was a TV in there so they could watch a movie at the end of the day and fall asleep. I honestly don't know why this area isn't jammed all summer long but I am grateful that it hasn't yet been discovered. This house was a perfect place for us - launching pad for Ocean Beach Park activities and relaxing for the granddad who preferred to read on the beautiful outdoor deck. We hope to come back for years to come."

  • Relaxation!

    "My sister and I needed a quite get-away from our busy lives. This location offered us quiet, beauty and a chance to relax and re-charge. It was perfect and we hope we can return again. The owner was very accommodating and friendly! We would recommend this cottage to others. Thank you!"
