Recent Connecticut reviews

  • Beautiful home; beautiful views!

    "We are from Missouri and met a NY daughter and a Boston son at this home for Easter weekend. The house needs a house number on the mailbox but once you've found it, it's all easy and feels likes a world away even though it is just off the "highway" between Mystic and Stonington. All the rooms are large and all the bedrooms have beautiful views. Even the bunking room, which could sleep at least 8 in twin beds, has a view because there are gorgeous views from the front and the back of the property. The main room is a combination kitchen, dining, living room and could entertain a large number of people. All doors from this GREAT room open onto a wonderful deck and an outdoor fireplace. There is a staging room off the kitchen too with an extra dishwasher, which we used after Easter dinner - another plus. Susan was very helpful with recommendations for restaurants and we highly recommend Bravo Bravo as our favorite. Great drinks; great food; nice atmosphere; nice size. Much better than the popular oyster house across the street. We did both of the recommended hikes on Susan's list and loved them both. Very different too! We also bought seafood in Stonington and had the best chowder and scallops ever! It's low key here at this time of year. I'm sure it's quite busy in summer and Mystic is cute. There's one grocery store - but a pretty good one. Alcohol is not sold in grocery stores but there's a well-stocked liquor store a couple miles from the property. Relaxing. You might want to bring earplugs. We did go ahead and play with the thermostat just a bit because we thought the setting was too cool for us. The picturesque light house, viewable from the house in the sound, does have a regular warning horn and if you are a light sleeper, you might hear it at night without your plugs. Lovely, lovely place. So great that owners are sharing it! Thank you to Susan for generous hospitality!"

  • Great family summer beach rental

    "Very large, beautifully decorated and livable house with fabulous private yard and 2 block walk to Compo Beach. We stayed here for a week as our summer vacation out of NYC. There was enough space for both of our kids and our guests and their kids to all have their own rooms. Backyard was great for entertaining and playing with kids with grill, hammock, large trampoline... Awesome upstairs playroom filled with toys. Owner very friendly and accomodating, left details instructions and tips for things to do in the area."

  • Wonderful Weekend Stay

    "My husband and I stayed here with our 2 young boys while in Kent for a family wedding. We were very happy with the apartment - it was clean, well-stocked, roomy, comfortable and conveniently located. Everything from the towels to the appliances was of the highest quality - we will definitely book this apartment again when back in Kent!"
