About Hope Viviani
As a child every summer my family would vacation in a log cabin in the country. I have such wonderful memories of catching frogs and fireflies, swimming until goose bumps forced me out of the water and sitting around a fire toasting marshmallows, that when the opportunity came along for us to purchase our own log home nestled in the woods, my husband and I didn't have to think twice. At the time we were living on a parcel of land that was .10 of an acre. We were both looking for some privacy and as an avid gardener, I was excited about the opportunity to have room to really get my hands dirty. We purchased Granite Lodge and never looked back. The peace, serenity and joy it has brought us both can not be measured.
Hope Viviani purchased this House in 1989
Why Hope Viviani chose Guilford
We purchased Granite Lodge to live in as our primary home. I was employed in New Haven and my husband worked in the shoreline towns off of I95. Purchasing this property allowed us to have privacy, serenity and the home of our dreams with a commute of only 20 minutes. After upgrading, adding gardens and the pool friends and family started asking us if we would host their weddings, birthday parties and family reunions. Vacation requests followed shortly after and we began to use Granite Lodge as a vacation rental.
What makes this House unique
Granite Lodge is conveniently located just 20 minutes from the restaurants, museums, live theater and the many other cultural and family activities New Haven has to offer. Beach and boating are half that distance. Enjoy a Thimble Island cruise departing from neighboring Stony Creek or take a day trip to Mystic Aquarium or Mystic Seaport. Do you think you would like to try your hand at gambling? Both Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos are within driving distance and offer gambling and celebrity entertainment. A day spent on the historic Essex steam train and river boat will be enjoyed by all. If shopping makes you smile it's a 20 minute trip down the shoreline to the outlet stores of Clinton Crossing. If staying close to home is your preference, just down the road is the quaint and historical town of Guilford. It is a family friendly town with beaches, parks, playgrounds, historic houses to tour, fine restaurants and fairs and events on the green throughout the summer. At Granite Lodge its all in your own backyard.
