  • Tranquility

    "Myself, partner and another couple who are good friends rented this charming, rustic home that was nestled in a forested area by a brook. The house had many windows, all overlooking the surrounding property, where one could watch the beautiful fall leaves drifting down and take in the sunlight filtering in through the trees. We had a lovely stay. The bedrooms were very comfortable and airy as was the living room and dining room areas and the kitchen was well-equipped for all of our preparation of meals. One of my personal pleasures was listening to the brook at night, which was a lullabye to me and I three nights of restful, uninterrupted sleep, which was a luxury to me. The surrounding area is quite breath-taking and the Audubon Center down the road from the house, has great nature trails and we went on a bird watching walk with the members there and they were very personable, informative, and accommodating and it was one of the highlights of the weekend. If you love nature and hiking and art, this is an ideal area. We look forward to staying in this country hide-away again in the near future."

  • Just amazing

    "We just finished an amazing week at this home. The house fit our needs perfectly with 3 sitting areas, enough bedrooms, grill and great kitchen space. Our favorite spots were the pool and sitting on the deck overlooking the inlet. It was so peacful watching the boats go by from the deck. We enjoyed the whole thing so much that we are looking to book the house again next summer!"

  • A Treasure Close To Home

    "Our stay at the marsh studio was truly a wonderful experience . . . one of our best vacations ever! We arrived in the rain and were so captivated by the contemporary design, sculptures and various works of art that we soon forgot about the rain. Ilsa and Bob are wonderful hosts. A bottle of wine, orange juice and the makings for coffee were very much appreciated. Their dog, Tilda, (a lab/something?? mix) was a fine greeter . . . energetic and loving and an added bonus for us. We decided to stay local this summer and were amazed at all there was to do in the Westbrook area. We saw a great concert at the Kate Theater in Old Saybrook and a few days later we went to the Goodspeed Opera House to see a wonderful musical. Both theaters are unique and conveniently located. The Chamard Winery in Clinton and lunch deckside overlooking the vineyards was great. We had a terrific waiter and the food was delicious. There are so many restaurants to choose from . . . The Boom at Pilots Point Marina has the view of the boats and the sunset, Lenny and Joe's was a favorite for eat in and take out. We love lobster so the Lobster Landing in Clinton was a great choice for hot lobster rolls and butter. For times when we wanted to stay put . . . the kitchen at the studio and outside grilling made dining in fun. West Beach was great for Barbara who LOVES the ocean and the fishing/crabbing and kayaking on the tidal river was Duncan's top of the list relaxing activities. Just sitting on the dock with a morning cup of coffee was so special. There was more that we did and much more to do next time and there will be a next time. Simply put, being there was WONDERFUL!!"

  • Plenty of space and wonderful owner

    "We had a family reunion this summer and very much enjoyed our time at the beach house. The house is spacious and we love the long dining table where all of us could sit together for a meal. The owner goes above and beyond to ensure you have everything you need (even when you forget something in the dryer :-).) She was very responsive to email and phone calls as we planned our trip. The town of Madison was great too. We had many walks into town to get food, browse in the cheese shop or most importantly get ice cream at Ashleys."
