  • Great Stay!

    "My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights to attend a wedding at the Saybrook Point Inn, which was a quick 10 minute walk away. The owner was extremely responsive. The cottage is quaint, cutely decorated, and has everything you need for a great stay. There is a small deck which overlooks the large grassy lawn - a perfect space to soak up some sun. The yard is especially great for any four legged friends you bring along!"

  • Wonderful home, peaceful setting, amazing views

    "We have just returned from a week staying in this lakefront home and we can not say enough about our stay. The house has a casual, comfortable, lakeside cabin-feel, has wonderful views and is set just steps from the lake. It is a relaxed setting, comfortable for all-- our dog could not have been happier with the well-kept, fenced-in yard --- we are not sure who was happier during this trip-us, or our dog! It is difficult to find a spot like this-we will be back! Thank you for sharing your home with us!"

  • Exceeded My Expectations

    "If you're looking for a wonderful peaceful natural location to get away from the maddening world, this is it! I spent almost a week here the first week of July and didn't want to leave. The owners Bill and Joanna are welcoming gracious hosts and gave me great advice about restaurants and nearby activities. I enjoyed the Black Rabbit Grill so much I was in there almost every night for dinner. I had been looking at the photos and talking to the owner for quite awhile before deciding to book it and I am so glad I did! The internet photos are great, but the actual feel of the place once you arrive and settle in is so much better. I highly recommend it and I will certainly go back!"
