Perfect home for Spring & Summer and Fall vacations in the scenic countryside. Ideal for family reunions, college visits, just chilling out, Summer, Thanksgiving or Christmas weeks. Academic rentals. Our beautiful home is so relaxing, inspiring and restorative, we call it 'River Muse', in recognition of the vistas of our private pond, meadow and our 1,000 foot frontage on nationally recognized 'wild & scenic' Eight Mile River. Sitting on five acres, our home is private, yet accessible. Swim in our river, at nearby beaches and Uncas Lake. Fifteen minutes to Old Saybrook train station for visiting friends and easy access to I-95.
Newly rebuilt, 5,000 sq ft, shingle-style home offers large rooms, state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen open to dining area as well as wonderful outdoor deck, patio and lawn dining. Gas and charcoal grills.
Thanks to floor to ceiling windows and our sunny Southern exposure, you will feel as though you are living outside, even when you are inside this delightful home.
Sit on our 75 foot long deck and enjoy river views or walk in our meadow and around the pond to see all sorts of wildlife and fabulous birds. You will hear - and if you are lucky, you might spot - the silhouette of the resident night owl known as the Whip-poor-will. The pond features a sturdy dock and a rowboat and teems with bass and bluegills - perfect for teaching children catch-and-release fishing or frog and turtle spotting.
