Great family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

My husband , twin teenagers, and I had a wonderful vacation in July 2009. The house was immaculate, charming, and cozy. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. I loved having my morning coffee on the deck and looking out at the water. Can't wait to come back!

Perfect Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great week in the Viola Cottage enjoying the beach, the fishing, and the great surrounding restaurants. The cottage is nicely furnished and everyone slept well with the sound of the water. This is a definite return vacation. Owners were very pleasant. Alice P.

Perfect beach house for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I and our two sons had a wonderful time here. The kids loved playing on the beach and it was perfect being able to sit on the balcony with our coffee and watch them. The cottage had all the amenities we needed to have a comfortable stay. We enjoyed Lobster Rolls from Lobster Landing (ordered out and brought them back to the beach house), perfect! The location is great, One day we walked through downtown Mystic (just a half hour away) and ate at Mystic Pizza and another day we drove into New Haven (again just a half hour drive) and toured Yale. On top of that Clinton had all the shops we needed.

Most of the time though we stayed in the cottage or on the beach, the weather was lovely and the beach house was bright and comfy. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

This is a wonderful property! House is perfectly maintained and decorated! The location is close to everything and yet right on the water. Couldn't have been happier for our mom's get away. Thank you Karl for a perfect weekend.

A lovely place to gather for the Yale commencement

  • 5 of 5

We found the Viola Cottage clean, attractively decorated and smack dab on Long Island Sound. There was nothing nicer than sitting on the deck drinking coffee in the morning or sharing wine and cheese in the evening. Wonderful birds:osprey, winter loons, American oystercatchers, brants, heron, and various types of sandpipers.

This May was way too cool for swimming or boating but between visits from friends and meals out in sweet Clinton, we had a wonderful time. It is a great place to walk and bike. It is 30-40 minutes from the cottage to the Yale campus so it was far enough to be outside of New Haven but close enough that we could get to the weekend events with no problem. We would recommend a family reunion renting all three cottages.

We were very lucky to have found this wonderful place via the Internet. We are grateful to Karl and Sharlene for their concern that we have a great vacation - which we did.


Le Petit Cafe in Branford - one of our best meals in years in a totally charming place.

Log Cabin in Clinton - a great hometown restaurant with huge portions and great flavors. Great service and a welcoming atmosphere

Westbrook Lobster - we ordered steamed lobster to go and ate it at the cottage. It was perfect, not dry or too wet. Just right - ready on time - and the people there were really nice.
