  • Great Location!

    "The location provided the opportunity to walk to the (free) Town Beach, many restaurants (Michael's Dairy for ice cream was fabulous), Dunkin Donuts, and the Eugene O'Neil house. We were close by car to Ocean Beach, Mystic Seaport, and many historic sites in New London. The owners very thoughtfully provided a free pass to Ocean Beach. The house itself suited our needs perfectly. The backyard accommodated 20 people for an informal luncheon and the front porch was ideal for quiet conversation. The eat in kitchen was a gathering spot every morning. We enjoyed the feeling of moving into "grandmother's house" with a good variety of books, games, and toys around for all ages. We were however, disappointed with a variety of housekeeping issues. The place had obviously not had a good thorough cleaning in quite a while. Cleaning supplies were not well organized, making it difficult for us to clean during our stay and at check out. It took a day of searching to find the cables for the DVD player. While we appreciate having basic condiments and supplies left from previous tenants (we ourselves left dish liquid for the next tenants), so much had been left in the cabinets and refrigerator it was difficult to find space for the food we had brought. Most of our food had to be left on the counter as there was no cabinet space available. Overall, the dust and cobwebs as well as other obvious issues, made it clear that the house had not been thoroughly cleaned before our arrival. In conclusion - we loved the location and ambiance of the house and would probably stay here again. We give it Five Stars for location and 3 1/2 Stars for Housekeeping."

  • Sweet cottage in wonderful location

    "My husband, mother-in-law and I spent three weeks in this sweet cottage near the beach. We live in CT but I wanted to be closer to work in Madison for a few weeks, while being near the beach. The cottage is very clean and comfortable, with a perfect backyard for balmy evening cookouts. The best part of this cottage is the location, which is a block from the beach and near a river where we kayaked to a wildlife preserve. Ideal for cycling, kayaking, walking...an unusually beautiful location on the shoreline. We'll be going back next year for four weeks."

  • Short stay at Little House in the Big Woods!

    "Stayed here for 2 nights to attend family reunion nearby. This is a great little hideaway in the woods. Restored 200 year old house is quaint and cozy. We loved the historic feeling and solitude of the property. The drive down the lane to get here is breathtaking and beautiful. Would be nice to come back and explore the woods and pond as we did not have time. This is a great property to get away from the city noise and bury yourself in a good book! Owner Eliza very easy to reach and helpful with suggestions for dining etc in immediate area. Bathroom stocked with lovely toiletries and kitchen stocked nicely as well (although very small). Winery down the road a bit fun to visit. Would love to return when we have more time!"

  • Beautiful New Memories at Cedar Lake!

    "I met my future husband at Cedar Lake on Labor Day 1967 and we decided to visit that location again this year. It was worth the trip from Virginia. My husband was concerned that it may be a camp or rustic cottage before we got there, however, it is a truly comfortable house and it was PERFECT. The lake house has all the modern features and conveniences. Full size kitchen appliances including dishwasher and even a full size washer / dryer right off the kitchen. We had the luxury of a flat screen TV with Dish hookup and internet. I was able to enjoy the early morning sunrise from the enclosed sun porch while winning a bid on eBay. Things have really changed since 1967! Great parking, too. Private parking and enough for 4 cars in front of the garage, so guests were not having to park far away when they visited us on the holiday. And, oh yes, the owners are absolutely terrific and great to communicate with if you have any questions. We now have another beautiful New Memory of Cedar Lake. Thanks Helene!"
