  • Great weekend getaway

    "Very much enjoyed the property as a home base for a long weekend getaway. The house was clean and comfortable with its open floor plan, and we found everything we needed on hand. The dining area with windows and skylight was especially enjoyable and provided birdwatching with your morning coffee. The setting was charming as pictured with a lovely garden under the pines. The owner was very accommodating and was there to meet us for an early check in. Would stay again."

  • Great Location!

    "The location provided the opportunity to walk to the (free) Town Beach, many restaurants (Michael's Dairy for ice cream was fabulous), Dunkin Donuts, and the Eugene O'Neil house. We were close by car to Ocean Beach, Mystic Seaport, and many historic sites in New London. The owners very thoughtfully provided a free pass to Ocean Beach. The house itself suited our needs perfectly. The backyard accommodated 20 people for an informal luncheon and the front porch was ideal for quiet conversation. The eat in kitchen was a gathering spot every morning. We enjoyed the feeling of moving into "grandmother's house" with a good variety of books, games, and toys around for all ages. We were however, disappointed with a variety of housekeeping issues. The place had obviously not had a good thorough cleaning in quite a while. Cleaning supplies were not well organized, making it difficult for us to clean during our stay and at check out. It took a day of searching to find the cables for the DVD player. While we appreciate having basic condiments and supplies left from previous tenants (we ourselves left dish liquid for the next tenants), so much had been left in the cabinets and refrigerator it was difficult to find space for the food we had brought. Most of our food had to be left on the counter as there was no cabinet space available. Overall, the dust and cobwebs as well as other obvious issues, made it clear that the house had not been thoroughly cleaned before our arrival. In conclusion - we loved the location and ambiance of the house and would probably stay here again. We give it Five Stars for location and 3 1/2 Stars for Housekeeping."

  • 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!"

  • Another nice stay in Colebrook

    "The first time I stayed at this log cabin was last year for my 60th birthday during the worse storm CT has had in a long time. My family stayed and it was wonderful. After our stay in Feb. 2013, we all talked about going again in 2014. So we did. It was funny driving up the driveway with only a couple mounds of snow. We were so excited. Strangely, the Tuesday night we were there it snowed. Yes, snow on the ground and covering our cars. We just laughed. By the time we left, snow was gone. We had a lot of fun that week. It is such a comfortable place to stay. My son and his wife along with others went to visit a couple of wineries. We returned to Da Capo restaurant in Torrington which was not far from the cabin. Da Capo restaurant was SO good we went twice. Great family style option available. We had an Easter Egg Hunt for my two grandchildren and you might find a few eggs still there. It was fun sitting around, playing board games, relaxing and taking small walks or just enjoying the a nice fire in the evening. We sat by the pond and had a small fire. It was very comfortable, relaxing and we all enjoyed our time at the cabin. We just might go again next year."
