  • Perfect setting for our Retreat!

    "My staff and I headed up to Mystic for our annual retreat in early September. Margaret was awesome in accommodating us on very late notice and was a pleasure to work with during the rental process. The house was just what we were looking for - its on Mason's Island which is extremely quiet and peaceful and within short access to everything including grocery stores, fish markets, restaurants and the marina. The deck is a tremendous feature and you could sit outside all day watching the boats and kayaks go by. The front of the house is ALL glass which lets in a ton of light, and the bedrooms and bathrooms were all clean and comfortable. We were within short driving distance to the Mystic Seaport, Aquarium AND Foxwoods casino! My staff and I are looking forward to returning next year and highly recommend this property to all!"

  • 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."

  • Another wonderful stay at the Captain's Cottage

    "This was our third stay at this great place and it just gets better and better. There were some additional kitchen items this year, not that we were really lacking in anything, which made things easier and more enjoyable. 10 thumbs up!!!"

  • The Best Deal in Ridgefield

    "I was pleasantly surprised to have all my expectations met or exceeded with my stay at George's converted barn. It is truly a "5 Star" property and I would highly recommend these accommodations to anyone planning on visiting the Ridgefield area. You literally need to do nothing more than show up and buy some groceries. We found this charming property to be the perfect place to lock ourselves away from the rest of the world for a little while and I have priceless memories of my stay here...thank you George!"

It hosts regular commercial flights on domestic carriers as well as private charter planes. Most people enjoy driving up to Connecticut because that way they can enjoy the beautiful countryside and scenery. Traveling by train is a convenient alternative as you do not have to hassle with traffic getting out of the cities.
