  • Perfect marsh hideaway minutes from town!

    "Loved my time in the Zen Cottage. Beautiful sunrise and sunset views on the deck of the marsh to enjoy breakfast and dinner by. Comfortable beds, excellent for a great nights rest after having an active day of hiking the nearby trails in Branford. The kitchen is nicely stocked with everything you need to make a nice dinner. Luckily for me the osprey next just off in the marsh was home to a family of four, with two young ones ready to fledge in September. I was also greeted by a very friendly cat who ate breakfast and dinner with me on the back deck a number of times during my stay. I could not have asked for a more perfect place to stay for a vacation! I hope to return in the future! Having lived in New Haven for a number of years, the Branford area is a perfect retreat. Close enough to hop over to the New Haven green for any of the free summer concerts and a nice dinner. Visitors to the area I also recommend heading over to the Stony Creek section of Branford. You can take a nice walk along the Trolley Trail to see the Thimble Islands in the distance, fiddler crabs, egrets and osprey. In the small town of Stony Creek you can grab breakfast, lunch or dinner and sit outside and gaze at the boats coming in from the Thimbles. Tours of the Thimbles leave frequently every hour."

  • Peaceful getaway

    "My husband and I stayed here for a month, and loved every minute. The owners are accommodating and friendly. The decor is cozy, warm, and inviting. The kitchen is well stocked and fun to cook in. We grilled on the patio many times and cut fresh herbs from the little herb garden right outside the door. We spent a lot of time at Twin Lakes, only a five minute drive away. The gardens are fabulous and so well tended. I took many naps on the screened in porch and we ate many meals out there with friends. We also hosted a large dinner party and there was plenty of space for everyone. The cable and wifi were reliable and very useful. One of my favorite things was walking down to the neighboring farm stand for produce, eggs, and flowers. So charming and convenient! I would highly recommend this property!"

  • Wonderful Stay!

    "We were completely pleased with our stay. We wanted a place to celebrate the Christmas holiday near my elderly mom, with family members coming to stay together in the house. So we needed a place that would be special even when staying indoors a lot! It indeed was beautiful, spacious, comfortable, very clean, and we really enjoyed the colonial theme. And lovely to walk on the beach, cold though it was. The owners were very gracious and friendly."

  • Perfect

    "This house is perfect, perfect, perfect. beautiful house, could-not-be-beat location (directly in front of the beach), and completely easy to be in with a toddler -- nothing to break. We are very grateful we got to enjoy it."
