A chef's paradise!! Incredible new kitchen, 6 burner gas stove, 12 ft ceiling.
***** **** My wife and I live out of state. We use the house when we can and eventually plan to retire here. Our dachshund is a devoted Steelers fan
Glori purchased this House in 1942
Why Glori chose Mystic
My grandparents built this house in 1946 when there were only a few people on the Island. They were able to get an absolutely ideal location. I have been coming here since the 1950s. We have continually updated the house and have had it professionally decorated. We don't put very much away, so our guests will feel that they are in a real home, not a rental
What makes this House unique
Everybody who walks into the house is taken by the views and the way that it fits naturally into the setting. It is very well decorated but has a relaxed feel that makes it very comfortable. The sounds of the water and wildlife are simply incredible. The coziness does not mean antiquated. The electronics are incredible and easy to use. Security is foremost with digital door locks, security system, driveway surveillance, smoke/carbon monoxide detectors, and thermostats are of which are integrated and computer controlled. Home theater, stereo, and internet are very reliable and easy to use. Very clear instructions cover all aspects of the house, and a large notebook contains an exhaustive compilation of things to do.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Great house in a perfect location.
Picturesque views and wonderful sunsets. Enjoyed our two week stay and took advantage of the fishing and kayaking off the backyard. Great kitchen and comfortable rooms. Highly recommend if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing vacation in a beautiful part of the CT shoreline.
Amazing rental worth a visit for any reason
We are a group of 5 sisters/best friends who have been taking a girls weekend for the past 15+ years. We graduated from an overnight at HOJO to a weekend away. We have stayed in many places but often come back to the mystic area as we enjoy it tremendously. This year I was able to find this home on Home Away. All of our trips to the area and we never knew Mason's Island existed. What a find. The location is between Mystic and Stonington for great shopping. Not enough can be said about the home itself. The house is huge with plenty of common rooms and more sleeping area than you need. The newly renovated kitchen is to die for, even if you don't cook like our group. It was a rainy chilly weekend but we just had to sit outside on the enclosed porch and enjoy the view. You feel like you are actually in the water. Everywhere we looked we found another treasure in this home that we had missed before. It is so peaceful and serene even the osprey didn't mind us checking them out. It was decided before we left that we would no longer look for a new place to go each year. We could not top this house, nor do we want to. Glori and Chuck are so helpful if you need them. We would all recommend this home to rent for a long weekend or week. I actually plan to bring my husband here for a weekend away for the two of us, then the girls will be back.
I can't say enough about this lovely home and location....the location on the water, the sunroom, the rooftop deck, lot's of room, secluded area yet so close to the Mystic and Stonington sights. My husband and I had such a wonderful week from sun up to sundown....the boats going in an out were fun to watch, lovely birds, beautiful sunsets and a feeling of being in the middle of a nature preserve. The owners were so helpful, everything they say about the house and tips to enjoy the area is spot on. The newly remodeled kitchen is a dream, yet so many good restaurants near by they are hard to resist. Everything you need in the house is provided, we wanted for nothing. Close to wineries too! This would be my first choice if I was going back to area again. Our adult children each joined us for an overnight and they loved it too!
Lovely Waterfront Home
My family stayed here for a niece's wedding -- perfect for us. We didn't have great weather but the house is so comfortable with so many different seating areas. My family then left and my suite mates from college arrived. Couldn't have been better. The kitchen us beautifully setup (not that we cooked much!). Didn't have to buy condiments, etc. Wine and cheese on the upper deck for sunset was spectacular. The views are terrific from many rooms.
The owners are terrific. They put lots of terrific info together on attractions, restaurants, etc. And they are very accessible.
The house description is very accurate. Everything is very clean. Beds, couches, chairs were all very comfortable. Honestly, this place couldn't have been better!!
This is an incredible property with wonderful owners.
The pictures show a great, inviting house and location. The reality is even better! The location is easy to find if you follow the directions. The house is wonderful! It is quite spacious, with many areas to relax and be mesmerized by the water. The views from inside and outside the house must be experienced to truly appreciate. We had great weather, so were able to utilize the outdoor seating often. The seating areas inside are numerous, you will never feel crowded here. The kitchen is fabulous! It is roomy with great updates and is well stocked with anything you might need. The bedrooms are spacious with very comfortable beds....you will get great sleep at night. The house has three full bathrooms and each shower has great water-pressure.
Wonderful people. Communication with the owners was fantastic. They sent information about the history of the house and its changes/updates (adds to the appreciation of the house), guidelines as to eating options (restaurants, take-out and grocery store options), suggestions of near-by attractions (though you may not want to leave the house once you arrive) and thorough instructions about everything in the house. You can feel the love they have for this house. Thank you to them for sharing this gem with us!
We look forward to renting this house again and do not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family who will give this house the appreciation and care it deserves.
Magnificent setting in a lovely home on the water
This property exceeded our expectations as it was nestled in a private location but was equipped with everything you could possibly want or need for a wonderful vacation on the Mystic river. The dock and the small private beach enabled you to go boating or swimming right from the house.
The owners were amazingly responsive to any communication and were absolutely delightful. There are actually two master bedroom suites with bathrooms that are both very spacious with plenty of room for clothing and accessories. The kitchen is equipped with absolutely anything a person could desire. It was recently renovated and is beautiful and functional. My family hopes to stay here next year as I am sure we could not possibly find a better home for our summer vacation in this area. Stoning ton and Mystic offer so much to do and yet when you are at this home you feel secluded in your own world enjoying the birds and all that surrounds you.
