Guestbook comments from the owner

I received the check in the mail the other day, thanks!!! Last weekend was just ABSOLUTELY wonderful! Terrific people, delicious food, spirited dancing, and lovely weather :) Having the opportunity to stay at the creek house really just pulled it all together so we thank you profusely for that! I really can't think of anything that I would have changed. When I posed the question to some of the gang, there were a couple of rather tall fellows who jokingly brought attention to the low ceilings upstairs hahah but I think they will survive! Not to mention that I felt it offered quaint and charming character to the place anyways! Thanks again! We would and will definitely rent again.

Amazing outside, very rustic inside

  • 3 of 5

My family (6 adults, 3 kids - all under 6) spent a week at this beautiful property. We lucked out with the weather and that made our stay so much better. There is a beautiful yard, swing set, big porch with gorgeous view of the river, dock, boats and a small beach that was perfect for our little ones. The house has 5 bedrooms, (1 with twin bed, the room is so tiny!) and 2 bathrooms (both very small). The house is old, mostly clean. It was a little tight inside with all these people, and if it had rained more I think we would have gone stir-crazy. The house is rustic and TVs are ancient, and the beds are not comfortable. There are no frills here, but its cozy. The listing says there is air conditioning, but there were only 3 window units. The upstairs got warm at night, good thing we brought more fans to cool things down. The owners were very easy to contact, accommodating and very friendly. I would go back for the outside, but not the inside. Overall, it was good.

Charming, spacious, and affordable!

  • 5 of 5

Terrific rental property! We felt very fortunate to find a home to meet the needs our family: clean, comfortable beds for all, a well-stocked kitchen, space to eat and relax together as a family, quiet and picturesque surroundings, proximity to restaurants and shops, plus opportunities for outdoor fun and adventures. Angela made the rental process so easy and the cost was within reason. Our brood of 11 and our "grand" dog enjoyed every moment of our stay at the Creek House, making happy memories that will last a lifetime!

Perfect for a First Look and Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This home is an absolute gem! We stayed here for two very important events. We needed a beautiful setting for our Get Ready location and First Look before our wedding, and we needed a relaxing, spacious setting for a reunion of family members that hadn't seen each other is several years. The home was comfortable, clean, and well stocked. The bedrooms are decorated in cheerful themes, which were perfect for wedding day pics and video. The location is right on the river and away from the main road, but close to coffee and other shops and activities. The home was friendly for our seniors as the main level has a bedroom and bathroom, the porch is large (small steps up), and most of the yard around the home is walkable with a walker/limited ability. My family enjoyed fishing, the fire pit, the playground, and sitting on the porch relaxing. We felt like we were on vacation, but had all the comforts of home. Everyone wants to return! Thank you for allowing us to share your home, for it will always hold a very special place in our memories and hearts!

Perfect for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Seven adults and six kids had a wonderful time at the Creek House. There was plenty of room for all of us and the amenities were plentiful - stocked kitchen, games, books, movies, outside toys, swingsets and anything else you could possibly need! Big boys loved the crabbing under the bridge and even the 5 year old jumped off at high tide. We enjoyed our adventures to Rocky Neck, The Dinosaur Place in New London and Brownstone Exploration and Discovery Park. In spite of the heat, we enjoyed a couple of nights around the fire pit. The kayaks got a lot of use, including a sunrise trip which produced some great photos! The house was very clean and super comfortable. The owner was very accommodating. Enjoyed the binder in the house with information on area attractions and also the one with the history of the house - quite interesting. Highly recommend - hope it's still a rental for the next time we decide to get together in CT!!!!

Relaxing Retreat Setting

  • 4 of 5

Creek House provides basic, comfortable accommodations in an exceptional setting. Even though it is located in CT with a high population density, it feels as if you are off and away, with plenty of wild life around and beautiful views of the creek and estuary. This time we were able to kayak out to the ocean and even used the outdoor shower, but were spared the crushing overpopulated feel of being at the shore/beach.

Girls' Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We go somewhere new every year, and this year decided on Connecticut. With six of us, there were plenty of bedrooms and beds for each of us, and two full bathrooms. It was too cold for the outdoor shower, but that would also have been an option. The itself house is great. Love the style and the homey feel. The property was also nice, and we loved the views from the porch. Plenty to do in the area, too. Highly recommend this property.
