  • Peace, calm, serene, beauty, intoxicating views!! Spectacular place

    "I went there for a personal retreat. I chose the rental from the internet. As soon as I entered- I felt at home. It was the perfect place for my purpose. The house immediately welcomed me. It has such an at home cozy, inviting feel. The views of the water are mesmerizing and tranquil. The neighborhood is very quiet. This house is ever so spacious and well equipped. Nothing was left out. It is huge, having 3 floors and very spacious rooms. The floor to ceil windows in the Master - superb - watching the slow water movement under the moonlight at night - then waking up to the sun and water. What a way to go to bed each night and wake up each morning. There is a certain peacefulness about this house that is felt immediately and I relaxed right into it. The house is overly supplied with anything that you may need. Typically renting cottages annually- this was different. It was a house, as stated the owners care that the stay is perfect, very clean, well kept, beautiful furnishings, inside & out, private dock & beach - which btw was perfect even this time of year. Sliders from the LR right onto the deck. Maybe 15 steps down to the beach & dock. The water was so clear that I could see the bottom. Kathy & Andrew far exceed the normal owners. The communication before & during was prompt, personable, & thoughtful. As many rentals as I have done- I have never met owners who care so much that your time at their place exceeds your expectations. They have the perfect place for families, retreats, anything imaginable. I can't state enough how welcoming the house is. This is quite a unique place. The tranquility of the house, the views, etc allowed me the time I needed to "regroup" and regain my focus. I'm not sure my mission would have been so successful had I not been at this exact house. It is a must have for any purpose. Hoping to go back this summer with my family. I don't see how anyone can go here and not return. It is just that fabulous. Did I mention the tranquility, the views, the coziness, the owners, the welcome feel of the house?? I can say without a doubt I will be back. Thank you so much Kathy & Andrew. It was a pleasure."

  • So perfect!

    "Wow! Amazing house. So perfect. My extended family lives in CT and RI and we need a central place for "home base." This house was perfect for my husband and I, our daughter (20 months) and son (6 months). Could have held a lot more people. Porch is the best part! Great for cookouts and coffee watching the waves. The private beach was also incredible, at low tide you could walk out really far. The kids had a blast. Can't wait to book "our house" again for this year."

  • CT getaway

    "Just returned from a too short stay in this cozy cabin. Top of the line, all-around-want-for-nothing place to enjoy a fantastic view of the lake, cook a gourmet meal, lounge in front of the stone fireplace, read, bird watch, explore and hike nearby. Although we didn't actually get on or into the lake, we are dreaming about it in a return visit. Every detail is for comfort, convenience and enjoyment. You can feel the love and care that makes this a very special place. Some hikes: Mashamoquet Brook SP, Natchaug State Forest, Mansfield Hollow SP, Bafflin Sanctuary, Airline Trail, James L. Goodwin State Forest. This would be a great home base to explore Connecticut's quiet corner."
