Property description

Five Bedroom Grand Victorian home nestled on a hill with spectacular views of Niantic bay and the Long Island Sound.

Area lends itself to excellent attractions such as Mohegan Sun, Foxwoods, mystic seaport, skiing, shopping outlets (Clinton crossings and tanger), restaurants, night life, New England scenic fall foliage and a short ride to the New London ferry (1 hour, 15 minutes to Long Island wine country).

Our home offers guests the opportunity to enjoy family reunions, anytime getaways, USCGA family visits and graduations, sabbaticals and a meditation holistic healing experience. This Victorian is an excellent setting for authors, poets, movie producers and film makers.

Fully furnished and freshly painted/decor house maintained immaculately. All beds separate to accommodate groups (2 cots available on premises).
