"Our family of 5 plus doggie spent a glorious week here. What an amazing piece of property, and an equally amazing house. Everything was spotless. The kitchen was a delight, so much room. The house itself is very large, there are plenty of places to spread out and relax. The log cabin feel and décor makes you feel instantly welcome. The grounds are park-like, your own private oasis. The owners were very helpful, kind and relaxed people. We took advantage of all Granite Lodge had to offer - from the fire pit [s'mores!], grilling, hot tub and pool. What a pool it was! We have young kids, the pool at the shallowest is 18", and 12 feet at the deepest. Something for everyone. My kids lived in that pool. We even went fishing at the little pond at the entrance. While a bit precarious for little kids, we gave it a try anyway - and we caught some fish! There's a beast of a turtle that lives in the pond too, he came up to say hello. The kids were thrilled. There is space to run around, although we never used the soccer ball we brought with us, the pool was just too big of a temptation. We felt like we were far and away from civilization, but Branford and Guilford are just minutes away. We explored a little bit, there's peach picking, a winery, a fabulous playground at Jacob's Beach. Tried the Chowder Pot based on another's guest's review, it was dynamite and quite reasonable. If you brought all supplies with you, you wouldn't find a reason to leave. But there is a supermarket close by, plus loads of farmers' stands dotted along Route 1. What a beautiful area of Connecticut, we're so delighted we discovered it. Can't wait to come back. Thanks Barbara and Joe!"

"We spent a week here with our school-aged children (11, 10, 8) and had such a great time! The house was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed, including really handy tips on how to enjoy the home and the surrounding community. We took long bike rides on the Airline Trail, kayaked from Lollipop beach, had ice cream and lobster rolls at Harry's, and made smores at the firepit. Fun outings included the Mystic Aquarium and Seaport and a minor league baseball game (with fireworks!) in nearby Norwich. On our last day - July 4th - a parade of cars and kids on bicycles came through the lake community throwing candy at my thrilled kids. My 10 yr old exclaimed, "This may be the best vacation ever :-)" Thanks, John & Rita!!"

"Spent the week here in August and the place was perfect for us. We had the choice of crossing the street to a private beach, walking around the corner to the public beach or walking a little further north to a perfect little sandy beach. We had our three small grandchildren with us so the beach and ocean were all we needed to entertain them daily. There are also three restaurants and ice cream shops within walking distance. We had the use of two kayaks and four bikes which were an added bonus to renting this place. The downtown area of Milford is only a short drive away with some nice restaurants. We would definitely rent this place again."
