  • Tranquility

    "Myself, partner and another couple who are good friends rented this charming, rustic home that was nestled in a forested area by a brook. The house had many windows, all overlooking the surrounding property, where one could watch the beautiful fall leaves drifting down and take in the sunlight filtering in through the trees. We had a lovely stay. The bedrooms were very comfortable and airy as was the living room and dining room areas and the kitchen was well-equipped for all of our preparation of meals. One of my personal pleasures was listening to the brook at night, which was a lullabye to me and I three nights of restful, uninterrupted sleep, which was a luxury to me. The surrounding area is quite breath-taking and the Audubon Center down the road from the house, has great nature trails and we went on a bird watching walk with the members there and they were very personable, informative, and accommodating and it was one of the highlights of the weekend. If you love nature and hiking and art, this is an ideal area. We look forward to staying in this country hide-away again in the near future."

  • Perfect place for a Family Rreunion

    "It would be hard to find a more lovely and historic setting to reunite 4 generations than this Connecticut home. From the moment you step out of your car you feel at home. The feeling continues as you move into Erle's magical house. The lovely entry, the delightful kitchen, looking towards the "Old Toy Factory" across the road, the large living room and the cozy den provide places for families to either be together or separate for reading and other activities. This property has a large yard with a river running through it and plenty of room to roam or just sit and enjoy the sounds and sights of the Connecticut country side. If you look into the history of the neighborhood you will discover even more things to make your stay memorable. Thank you Erle for providing such a wonderful place for our family reunion."

  • Great Location!

    "The location provided the opportunity to walk to the (free) Town Beach, many restaurants (Michael's Dairy for ice cream was fabulous), Dunkin Donuts, and the Eugene O'Neil house. We were close by car to Ocean Beach, Mystic Seaport, and many historic sites in New London. The owners very thoughtfully provided a free pass to Ocean Beach. The house itself suited our needs perfectly. The backyard accommodated 20 people for an informal luncheon and the front porch was ideal for quiet conversation. The eat in kitchen was a gathering spot every morning. We enjoyed the feeling of moving into "grandmother's house" with a good variety of books, games, and toys around for all ages. We were however, disappointed with a variety of housekeeping issues. The place had obviously not had a good thorough cleaning in quite a while. Cleaning supplies were not well organized, making it difficult for us to clean during our stay and at check out. It took a day of searching to find the cables for the DVD player. While we appreciate having basic condiments and supplies left from previous tenants (we ourselves left dish liquid for the next tenants), so much had been left in the cabinets and refrigerator it was difficult to find space for the food we had brought. Most of our food had to be left on the counter as there was no cabinet space available. Overall, the dust and cobwebs as well as other obvious issues, made it clear that the house had not been thoroughly cleaned before our arrival. In conclusion - we loved the location and ambiance of the house and would probably stay here again. We give it Five Stars for location and 3 1/2 Stars for Housekeeping."

  • 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."

Guilford Travel Tips

Get away with Guilford Rentals

The city of Guilford in southern Connecticut is the typical New England town. With a strong sense of community, cultural and historical preservation, the Guilford rentals nestled into the shoreline along the Long Island Sound and throughout the town are perfect for any vacation involving Connecticut travel. In fact, for those vacationers who are not staying in Guilford lodging already, it is a highly popular day trip destination.

History around Guilford Lodging

If you love touring old houses, book Guilford rentals. Along the beautiful town green in the center of town, you will see some of the most beautiful historic homes, quaint shopping strips, and churches. Connecticut travel is never complete without touring historic homes and there are five in Guilford, ranging from the 17th to 19th centuries. One you will not want to miss is the Henry Whitfield State Museum which is the oldest stone house in all of New England.

Spend Time in the Great Outdoors When You Book Guilford Rentals

Because Connecticut is such a beautiful state, when you book Guilford lodging, you really should plan to make time outside. The town is situated right along the coast and has two scenic highways--Scenic Route 146 and 77--for some really relaxing country drives. Guilford rentals are in the perfect location if you love to ride your bicycle, bird-watch, jog, stroll, or even hit the beach. Be sure to check out the WestWoods and Timberlands Trails.

Connecticut Travel for True Natural Beauty

Connecticut travel will allow you some of the most picturesque sights within New England. Because it is one of the oldest states, much of Guilford lodging is tucked right in between some of the most modern buildings as well as the oldest. You will find cemeteries with impressive and ancient headstones, Indian sites, American Revolution and Civil War memorials and monuments and so much more. You will really feel like you are stepping into another time in history.
