"We spent 10 days in the Gardener's Apartment. When we arrived we found milk and juice in the frig, fruit on the table and rolls and cookies on the counter. The location is very convenient for seeing Bristol and the surrounding areas. The apartment is located between the two main north south streets of Bristol and just a block away from the bay and several nice restaurants. We found the furnishings of the house comfortable and as portrayed in the listing photos. We especially liked the TV room with its desk for setting up the computer. Everything worked and all items needed for our stay were there. The gardens, so tenderly cared for by Ed, were a delight and we enjoyed sitting on the patio in the evening shadows. ED and Raechel were great hosts. When they learned we were celebrating an anniversary, a congratulatory card and balloon appeared on our door step. It was easy for me to give it 5 stars and I wish I could give 10!"

"Came for a family wedding with a party of 8 and ended up falling in love with a home and the town of Bristol! The mushroom was in a magical setting surrounded by beautiful foliage. The house was very private and had everything you could need. Beds were very comfortable, plenty of towels, the fireplace was great for the one cold night we were there. Beautiful views from the house and backyard. The beach was amazing, we walked every morning each way and it was so peaceful. Lots of things for kids to do and explore, found lots of sea glass. The town of bristol was very close and was the perfect New England town. The Beehive cafe is a must!!! Owners were very helpful and easy to communicate with. We didn't want to leave, and will definitely be visiting again!!"

Wedding in Bristol? An excellent hotel alternative!
"We rented Steven's beautifully designed cottage instead of a hotel room for a family wedding. You'll have more space to relax than any hotel room. In addition to a kitchen, an outdoor shower, and indoor shower, you'll have a fabulous and relaxing outdoor deck. My husband enjoyed the big screen tv with all the channels to chose from. The internet was reliable and quick. Steven's sweet mom lives next store to the cottage and was so helpful with information about the cottage and the surrounding area. Steven was quick to respond to questions and details for the rental. The deposit was returned quickly. We were so happy to stay here, and have fond memories of our stay!"

"Stayed as a group of 9 in town for a wedding. The house could not have been more perfect. Ben was extremely attentive and easy to reach if need be. He made sure we knew we had what we needed for the weekend! The house has an incredible view. We could sit on that deck all day! Thank you Ben for helping to make our friends wedding that much more special. We can't wait to come back!"
