  • 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."

  • Good things come in small packages

    "This little 2 bedroom/1 bath cottage is in a perfect location if you are looking to relax and enjoy a gorgeous view of the lake. Though there are cottages and homes all around this lake we felt like we were almost the only ones there. The grandchildren enjoyed the kayaks and swimming every day. We enjoyed the huge and fully "furnished" deck, reading, playing games and just vegging out. Though the place is small it has everything you need. We only had to bring our clothes and some groceries. A new washer/dryer were being installed the day we left so that will make things even better!"

  • 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!!"

  • Peaceful and charming

    "We had a large group for Thanksgiving and the property was perfect. The kitchen had everything we needed, there was space for all, and the views were terrific. Given the weather, we most enjoying the large and festive living room fire place. The photos don't show the bathrooms, which were all very nice. The house is close to Mystic and the train station, and yet we felt like we were really away from it all because of the tranquil river setting. My son and his friends enjoyed canoeing, even though it was cold. I bundled up and enjoyed morning coffee on the deck. It's easy to imagine how nice this house would be in the summer. Paul was great to work with and the property was very well maintained. I hope to return soon!"
