About the Property

House, 11 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 16-22)

For rent ( and for sale). The Thimble Island House - Once a hotel in the Thimble Islands built in 1846, now a beautifully restored 6,300 sq. ft. family home with 11 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms with large covered porch facing sunset views and a morning porch for sunrises. Water views from every window. Newly restored 2 story gourmet kitchen that looks out onto the morning porch and the water. Large dining room seating 16 or eat under the large Victorian covered porch. A large game room with pool table and ping pong. Library for reading. A large rolling grassy meadow for strolling leading to a private beach and dock. Craggy rocks for climbing.

Truly a place where time has stopped and full of peaceful energy and serenity - for family re-unions. Many have come here and found ideas for new beginnings, personal renewal, or simply partaking in wonderfully shared time with family members or associates.

The season is May through October -- beautiful in the spring, summery fun in the summer and autumn beauty and magic in the fall.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I was an entrepreneur in healthcare technology and now in education consulting with charter school. I love developing and restoring unique properties. The Thimble Islands are very unique. I have been an owner of my property since 1995. My extended family and friends have loved it all these years.

Why the Owner Chose Branford:
My parents found the Thimble Islands in the early 60's and we as children have very fond memories of the islands. I returned as an adult and after renting, purchased my 4 acre property on Pot Island in 1995. I have been there with my family every summer since. I also have for rent a smaller cottage with boathouse on the same property.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Being on the island provides spiritual renewal due to the magnificent views of water, land, and nature. The place has a Norman Rockwell feeling to it and where time has truly stopped and one can relax, read, socialize, cook, exercise, kayak, boat, swim, sail, fish, dance....and all without leaving the island.
