  • Really great house

    "A group of women stayed here for a Yale Divinity School reunion in October 2014. It was a beautiful house with plenty of parking and bedrooms. We enjoyed our stay and recommend the place for big groups. It has lots of bedrooms, a great family room, spacious kitchen and room to enjoy. The property owners and manager worked with us coming from all parts of the country. This was a comfortable house in a good location for us."

  • Son's wedding week

    "We had several family members in town for a 5 day reunion and our sons wedding. The house was comfortable, clean and had plenty of amenities. The playscape, kayaks, yard, river - all were used and enjoyed! One note of warning - don't try to kayak at low tide! There isn't enough water depth. But when the tide is in, it was great!"

  • Adorable Cottage

    "We were looking for a house rental because my son was graduating from the Coast Guard Academy. We saw pictures of this adorable cottage on VRBO and it looked like the perfect place for our needs - and it was! The view from the front porch is breathtaking. The house has all of the immenities needed. The neighborhood is beautiful. We are hoping to stay here again in 2016 when my younger son graduates from the Academy."

  • Exceptional Vacation Log Cabin

    "We had a wonderful stay at this house -- much more than a "cabin". The lay out worked so well for my parents to have their own space, while the grandkids and I had privacy as well. Comfy, well equipped home, with everything you need for a relaxing time w/nature. Plus, we had more than enough space to entertain the rest of our clan that lives in CT, ...w/ things to do for all ages. Know that this house has it's own pond with a small beach, ...so is not the same as a "lake front" vacation home. It offers solitude & quiet, and lots of space to take advantage of that. Or, you can leave the house and explore this beautiful area of CT. We'll be back!! Thank you for a wonderful place to relax! PS: My son did see a bear the 1st morning we were here! I suspect the activity here kept them away after that!"
