  • You're a Friend of the Family

    "My husband and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with a two-night stay at this wonderful cabin. Everything was clean and comfortable. Labels for light switches and notes were scattered throughout the cabin to make you feel right at home. Although we didn't cook at all, the kitchen was well stocked with the basics for anyone who would want to cook. Our bed was comfortable, and there were lots of blankets to keep us warm. The great room layout of kitchen with breakfast bar and living room with dining area was wonderful. TV with cable and a DVD player entertained us. We never got to the outdoor hot tub or the pool and air hockey tables in the basement—a shame. Unfortunately, it rained all day on the 17th, so we couldn't partake of outdoor activities. The pond and trampoline looked inviting for August, not November. It would be a super spot for a large family gathering. I would highly recommend this property, and I hope we make it back for another stay sometime. Thank you, we had a great time!"

  • Inviting, Spotless and Beautifully Decorated

    "We were so happy to have discovered this beautiful gem in the CT countryside! The home is lovely -- both inside and out. If fact, the listing photos do not really do it justice. This is a gorgeous old house, lovingly restored and decorated with obvious care and talent. It is also a very comfortable house. From the moment you enter the mud room (the most gorgeous mud room I've ever seen) till you sink into the sumptuous down-filled pillows on the family room sofa, you will feel totally pampered. The bathrooms and bedrooms include quality linens and towels, and the kitchen is well-equipped and spacious enough for several cooks. And the dining room... well, the dining room is simply breathtaking! Homeowner Sheila took the time to greet us on our arrival and show us the entire house, answering all of our questions and providing tips about where to eat out and what to see. My husband and I loved hiking down the surrounding country roads and at nearby Bee Brook, and exploring beautiful Litchfield. We visited White Flower Farms, The Glebe, and the Bellamy-Ferriday House. We wandered the shore of Lake Waramaug at dusk -- a beautiful sight indeed. And we may have over-indulged on the ice cream at Arethusa Farm and Dairy. :) If you love the comfort and beauty, antiques and the outdoors, gardens and historic architecture, this is definitely the place for you!"

  • wonderful getaway!

    "We stayed here with our kids and cousins. Such beautiful accommodations and the lake is great for swimming/ boating/ and relaxing. Make sure you stroll down the road to the local tavern/restaurant for an amazing dinner and drinks. Highly recommend staying at this great lake house!"

  • Beautiful home; beautiful views!

    "We are from Missouri and met a NY daughter and a Boston son at this home for Easter weekend. The house needs a house number on the mailbox but once you've found it, it's all easy and feels likes a world away even though it is just off the "highway" between Mystic and Stonington. All the rooms are large and all the bedrooms have beautiful views. Even the bunking room, which could sleep at least 8 in twin beds, has a view because there are gorgeous views from the front and the back of the property. The main room is a combination kitchen, dining, living room and could entertain a large number of people. All doors from this GREAT room open onto a wonderful deck and an outdoor fireplace. There is a staging room off the kitchen too with an extra dishwasher, which we used after Easter dinner - another plus. Susan was very helpful with recommendations for restaurants and we highly recommend Bravo Bravo as our favorite. Great drinks; great food; nice atmosphere; nice size. Much better than the popular oyster house across the street. We did both of the recommended hikes on Susan's list and loved them both. Very different too! We also bought seafood in Stonington and had the best chowder and scallops ever! It's low key here at this time of year. I'm sure it's quite busy in summer and Mystic is cute. There's one grocery store - but a pretty good one. Alcohol is not sold in grocery stores but there's a well-stocked liquor store a couple miles from the property. Relaxing. You might want to bring earplugs. We did go ahead and play with the thermostat just a bit because we thought the setting was too cool for us. The picturesque light house, viewable from the house in the sound, does have a regular warning horn and if you are a light sleeper, you might hear it at night without your plugs. Lovely, lovely place. So great that owners are sharing it! Thank you to Susan for generous hospitality!"
