Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have found a more perfect place for having our family come together for our daughters wedding. The house is spacious and easy to relax in; having a bedroom with en suite bathroom on the first floor made it super easy for the grandparents to not have to climb stairs. The backyard is simply breathtaking, and made for a fantastic BBQ space. The owner was very helpful and could not have been nicer, she's maintained the house in great condition and all communications were prompt and straightforward. Without any hesitation we can say this experience exceeded our expectations and we're thankful for having found such a perfect place for us.

Spacious House

  • 5 of 5

This house has so much room. Our party had plenty of space to be able to either gather together or spread out. It had everything we needed and it was wonderful to have enough bedrooms with comfortable beds for everyone. Thank you very much Judith!

Fall Wedding Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights in this house with range of just four people up to eleven people overnight in the house during the period (12th individual could not join us due to hurricane hitting the gulf coast). Judith walked us through the mechanics of the house upon arrival to be sure we knew how things operated and that was very good. The living room was spacious enough for all us to gather together and and carry on conversations yet there were rooms plenty to separate off when required (one individual needed to take MBA on-line exam while on vacation). We put all the bedrooms to use and no complaints on beds. The one adult on the rollaway bed in the sitting area had the only complaint - but only needed that bed for one night. Location is close to Mystic and not far from the I-95 served us well for the various trips for rehersal / wedding / and following morning brunch at the Casino 35 minutes away. We stopped at a Costco in Medford before arriving at the house - but there is nearby shopping making that convenient as well. All in all very pleasant set up for the family of all adults that stayed at the house.

Enjoyable Stay

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay with the extended family. Comfortable and spacious home with all amenities. Large garden that the children loved to play in. Realise most people staying here would have a car, but without, it felt slightly remote from areas like Mystic, given our difficulty accessing Uber - should perhaps have signed up before we left.

Owner's Response: A lovely family that flew in from Scotland to attend their nieces wedding in Ledyard. I’m happyt they loved the house, were comfortable, and enjoyed their stay. This house is very conveniently located - 5 minute drive to Mystic, 3 minute drive to the Supermarket – 5 minute drive to Stonington Village – 10 minute drive to Westerly Rhode Island. However, it is not practical to stay anywhere in this area without a car. Most people rent a car at the airport and drive to the house. There is an Enterprise car rental in Mystic that will deliver a car right to the house. I believe this family chose not to rent a car while they were here since driving on the opposite side of the road, which they are used to at home in Scotland was outside their comfort zone. Cabs are available but not quick like in an urban area. We do have Uber, but you need to sign up prior to arrival. This made them feel somewhat hampered due to the lack of a car, and that is understandable. Thank you so much for choosing our house. If you return, I hope you can sort out the transportation before arriving. All my best wishes to you and your family!

Fantastic Property at a Super Affordable Rate!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this property and our experience! My family came together in Mystic for our youngest sister's wedding in May. We needed to find a place to accommodate 7 adults, 2 children and 1 6-month old baby. This place surpassed my entire family's expectations (not an easy feat).

There was so much room, we never felt cramped. The kitchen was nice and big. That was a big selling point, since this is where my family likes to gather. The rooms were large and comfy. My older sister and her family took over the master bedroom, which was perfect as it had the attached sitting room which gave them enough space to spread out. 3.5 bathrooms was AWESOME! We even had an extra bedroom, so my little sister could stay with us the night before her wedding.

This was really the first time in my adult life that my entire family, including the newer additions (i.e. spouses & kids), came together to "live" under one roof. Being able to spend that time with them really made the trip that much more special and memorable.

The surrounding landscape was great as well. We grilled on the BBQ, threw the football in the yard, and ran around with the kids. My little sister even took some of her pre-wedding photos on the grounds.

The owner was fantastic to work with as well. She quickly answered all my questions via email prior to booking the place. She was very accommodating on our check in day, as getting 10 people from all over the country together at a specific time is rather difficult. She was very clear and detail oriented when she took us through the house. And she was always responsive if I had any questions or needed anything. But once we checked in, she gave us our space to make ourselves at home.

This is my first VRBO-type experience and it was phenomenal. This place is great for a large group. If my family ever finds ourselves coming back to the area, we'll definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: I feel so fortunate to own this beautiful house. I work hard to maintain it and keep it up to expectations. I’m always grateful when the people who rent it appreciate it as much as I do, and it is a joy to share it with them. Families from all over the world have gathered in it and the house enjoys the good vibes they all leave behind – thank you!
