Recent Connecticut reviews

  • A little slice of heaven

    "My family loved the 'cottage' on the water. Views from every window were fabulous. The location is private and quiet, and quite spectacular. We chose the location because it was half way for both of our adult children (NYC and Boston) who joined us on weekends. During the weekdays we went site seeing and visited nearby seaport towns along the Ct. coast. Shopping was fabulous at the outlet malls (less than 10 miles away). Old Saybrook is a quiet, less touristy town than some of its neighbors, but has great restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops, and a great yarn store! This is also a dog friendly town with several groomers if that service is needed. But, what we enjoyed most was just relaxing at the cottage, enjoying the sunrise and sunsets on the water, and talking long walks along the coast. It was just what we needed after a difficult 8 mos. deployed overseas. The cottage itself has a very nice, up-to-date renovated and well outfitted kitchen and renovated baths, and is comfortably and casually furnished. There were plenty of linens and towels. Cleaning supplies were available, as well as food staples left by previous tenants for use, and we left behind our unused items (ie coffee/tea etc.) for the next group. I would highly recommend this rental. (Time of year - early April)"

  • Very, very happy with this decision

    "This house was compact, clean, convenient - a delight in every way. We even managed okay with just one bath and seven people. Very near a great beach (short walking distance). And very convenient to the things we like to do as a family: Mystic Seaport; miniature golf at Saybrook Point; Gillette's Castle; Chester ferry; Essex steam train; Johnny Ad's restaurant in Old Saybrook - and especially the Deep River Fife & Drum Corps Muster on the 19th (always the 3rd Saturday in July). Grew up nearby but have lived in Texas for 20 years - and definitely will use this house as a great place for a "base of operations" when visiting the East or coming back again for the Muster."

  • 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!"
