"Me and the family had a great time at the RED HOUSE. Great place for small kids to explore and be in a safe and friendly environment. The owners were a great host and had neat things at the cottage for us to do such as local puzzles, games, and more...we look forward to our next stay!!!"

"If you have a small family, look no further! This house was perfect for our family (2 adults/2 children). It was clean and had everything we needed. Also, the pictures are outdated, the kitchen has been upgraded and look likes the owners re-painted. There are bunk beds in the second bedroom as well as futon sofa which made the room more spacious. The beach is clean and only short walking distance from the house. There are lots to do in the area - mini golfing in Old Saybrook, Essex Steam train, great restaurants. Will definitely come back!"

"we had a great time. the property has a great patio with great views. the kayaking is terrific. teens would love the adventure. the lawn areas are very nice. air conditioning is good for hot days. good dining room. beds comfortable. kitchen needs more organization if you like to cook as we did. not enough mugs for coffee and glasses to drink. great parking spaces. casino, site seeing and groceries nearby. overall, a good place to rent."

"My boyfriend and I recently spent 4 wonderful days at Hatch Pond to celebrate my birthday and had the most lovely time. The Kent area is BEAUTIFUL! Everything was perfect and stress free and it was easy to get to from NYC. Tons of activities to keep us entertained like kayaking/canoeing on Hatch Pond and hiking on the Appalachian trail. The town of Kent is cute too and has shops and restaurants, but we really enjoyed just being in the cottage cooking, relaxing and unplugging from the world (though there is a TV with cable if you want!).
The cottage itself is great and well maintained--tons of modern fixtures, wifi, comfy beds and kitchen gadgets while still retaining a real country feel and charm. Even though it was summer it felt cool inside with the fans that we didn't even really use the window cooler. Huge bonus is the amazing garden that Michael, the owner, maintains. Nothing beats walking outside and picking some fresh basil right off the stalk and making a delicious pesto. Speaking of Michael, he is the best!!! He met us at the house, gave us the tour, told us about some of the local highlights and was there as needed. It's really obvious how much he loves the house and the Kent area, all of the great antiques lovingly displayed in the cottage are handpicked by him. You can even visit his antique shop The Bunkhouse to pick up a little treasure of your own to take home.
Overall, highly recommend this gem, would love to go back!"
