  • Hospitality!!

    "My family greatly enjoyed our stay in Mystic. This home is bright, cheery and very comfortable. In addition to a great home in a great location, the owner is very easy to work with. There were many small details that made me feel more like a welcomed guest rather than just some other renter. Thank you for sharing your home and your hospitality."

  • Great family accommodation

    "Just returned from a lovely week in this Noank cottage. Views wonderful from both decks and we spent the week relaxing in the sunshine on these decks. Beds very comfortable and the cottage is well stocked with all the amenities you would need to make it feel like home from home. Great places to explore locally - noank village, public beach with weekly concerts, mystic village and stonington borough village. Communication from owners great. We hope to return at a future date."

  • Absolutely Perfect! 5 stars!!

    "What an amazing place CT is. If you're looking for an extended place to stay, Cozy Nest Cottages is the place to book. The owners are very polite and will help with any questions you have. They are located in East Lyme which makes it very easy to get where you are trying to go. I highly recommend staying here!!"

  • 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!"

Winter, spring, summer or fall -- the beauty of Connecticut’s landscapes never fades. Instead, they simply get transformed into a myriad of different and vibrant colors. During the winter months, the ski slopes are the main attraction and over weekends the resorts and towns become a hive of activity.

Between the hiking and mountain biking trails, country markets, antique shops, museums and back roads, there is something for every type of visitor to enjoy. The fall foliage each year brings a vibrant display of color to the landscapes. As the leaves turn all rusty hues, they create picture perfect moments. In the spring, once the snows have melted, the forests and valleys come alive with wildflowers and vibrant green hues. Connecticut is an all-season destination.

It hosts regular commercial flights on domestic carriers as well as private charter planes.
