"Just returned from a too short stay in this cozy cabin. Top of the line, all-around-want-for-nothing place to enjoy a fantastic view of the lake, cook a gourmet meal, lounge in front of the stone fireplace, read, bird watch, explore and hike nearby. Although we didn't actually get on or into the lake, we are dreaming about it in a return visit. Every detail is for comfort, convenience and enjoyment. You can feel the love and care that makes this a very special place. Some hikes: Mashamoquet Brook SP, Natchaug State Forest, Mansfield Hollow SP, Bafflin Sanctuary, Airline Trail, James L. Goodwin State Forest.
This would be a great home base to explore Connecticut's quiet corner."

"Ennis Cottage is a cozy, well maintained and clean cottage a few feet off of a scenic Branford Beach. The description would make it sound like the apartment is low on square footage, but it is surprisingly spacious (the bedroom/bathroom is small, the living room is large and kitchen well organized).
The beach is across the street, with a small walkway. There is a moderate sized lawn and gravel path around the house, which was great for us - our toddler could run around safely. The beach area is also fenced in, again making it a little less worrying that the baby would run onto the street.
The views from the beach is great, you see the smaller Thimble Islands and there is a small boat.
Note: You do need a car (or a bicycle) to get around Branford."

"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!"

"Our extended family rented this house again and truly had a fantastic time! The house fits all of us perfectly and the proximity to the beach is perfect! We even brought our jet skis this time and all the people at Hawk's Nest Beach were so helpful getting them into the water. We are really hoping to vacation here again in 2015."
