Overview

About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 3 Baths

This family home is located in the desirable east end of Mason's Island. There are sweeping views of Long Island Sound, Enders Island and Fisher's Island. Sailboats and sea life abound. If inspired one can move from sitting on the deck to paddling a kayak in these protected waters in a matter of seconds. It takes about an hour to circumnavigate the island.

There is very nice swimming off the dock when the tide is not at its lowest and Williams Beach, great for small children is about a mile away. Enjoy the outdoor shower to rinse off the salt water after a swim.

The home is available to rent for several weeks in the summer and much of the off season. The spring and fall seasons on the water are spectacular. Celebrating Thanksgiving or Christmas in this home is very convenient for families spread across the northeast as the dining room table comfortably seats ten people. Snowy weekends in the winter besides being beautiful are particularly peaceful. For this reason many groups return year after year.

This house is ideal for for families who are interested in a relaxed setting for a vacation or long weekend or for old friends gathering to reconnect. The home is close to the Mystic Seaport Museum and the Mystic Aquarium, the casinos, wineries and the Rhode Island beaches. There are two golf courses with public access locally. Often ignored are the excellent fishing opportunities, both party boats and charters are available locally. Catches include fluke, striped bass, bluefish, sea bass but also tuna and shark for those willing to venture offshore.

This home is in a quiet, gated residential community/property association. This property association places considerable restrictions on those in the community and therefore those who rent. All need to respect land owner's privacy, personal property lines and sense of space. Our neighbors, most of whom are full time residents greatly value their privacy and the sense of serenity that embodies this community; it is important that we as owners respect our neighbor's desire to live in a tranquil setting. Finally, parking at the home is limited to 4 cars.

As mentioned previously there is a dock, guests desiring to bring a small boat will be considered. If guests have a larger boat (greater than 17 ft.) there are a number of local marinas that can provide a short term slip. While jet skis are not allowed two kayaks are available for renters to explore the shoreline and surrounding islands. Fishing from the kayaks (although not 'fishing kayaks') can be a thrill.

As there is no request for a security deposit and to insure the fit is good for the owner and renter alike, each prospective guest needs to be in touch with the owner by phone prior to securing a rental agreement.

Why Bill Bradford chose Connecticut

This home was purchased largely based on location, two hours from Boston, two and a half from NYC and one hour from Hartford-and on the water. Our family has routinely gathered for special events. Due to this central location travel is manageable even for a short term stay. The home has now moved on to generation two and continues to serve the original purpose, giving the family an easy place to congregate-in an idyllic spot. Although cold, winter weekends can be spectacular.

Even in the Rain...

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I have been fortunate enough to have enjoyed this Mason's Island Home over many Sunny Columbus Day Weekends. This year we had rain instead of sun but this gracious Home still provided the cozy, comfortable space for our Family to enjoy each other's company!

From the small to the tall, from the Sunday Brunch Chefs, to the Bridge players, there was a well equipped kitchen and a quiet corner to enjoy the game! Keeping up with the Baseball and Football games was also no problem with the two TVs! This Home kept us Comfortable

& Cozy! Plenty of Clean, Comfortable Space to be together or to take that afternoon nap!

However, even in the rain and wind, you are drawn to the ever changing vista, right outside your windows, wonderful to observe from within this sturdy Home!

No, we didn't get to take our Family Walk around Mason's Island but we enjoyed a Wonderful Weekend truly enjoying each others' company!

Everything about it was perfect. In a great location and spectacular views.. The 5 am morning sunrise will be forever instilled in our memories... The home is very comfortable, clean and up to date... we loved it and loved the grounds and hope to return... What a special weekend we had.... Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us...We look forward to coming back in the near future.... The McLaren Clan

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this comfortable, gracious home for the Columbus Day Weekend for a Family Reunion - Ten Adults & one Toddler. We had a Wonderful Time! The weather was October Perfect but this lovely home affords amenities, comfort and an incredible location and view! With four spacious, comfortable bedrooms & a full bathroom upstairs and the master ensuite downstairs, it is perfect for a large gathering! There is also a bathroom with a shower off the Den/TV room downstairs.

We have rented this home before and each time we rent, it truly is like "coming home!"

The home is always clean & welcoming with linens and towels provided. There are places to enjoy each others company - the wonderful dining room table- and places to sit and read or enjoy the ever changing view! I love the deck where you can enjoy the outdoors and again, that wonderful view of the ocean, sailboats and Ender's Island!

You are so close to Mystic and Stonington, should you be inclined to explore!

We also enjoyed many walks around Mason's Island as it is perfect for short or long walks! My daughter lives in NY and she took the train to Mystic and we picked her up at the nearby train station- so convenient!

We had a Perfect Weekend thanks in large part to this comfortable, gracious home!

It is truly our Favorite Vacation Home! Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to enjoy Your Family Home!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home from Bill to attend a wedding at Mason's Island Yacht Club which is just across the pond. We were there for 3 days and had 7 adults and 2 small children. The home could not have been better. Very spacious, wonderful views, great deck and waterfront- everything we could have wanted. We were not there 10 minutes before my grown daughters were on the water in the kayaks and my wife was swimming. Bill was wonderful to deal with and the instructions were spot on.

Our only regret was that we did not stay longer.

Thank you Bill for a wonderful home and a great vacation.

Rooms with a View!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home during the US Coast Guard Academy Commencement week. The ocean front property listing is situated on a quiet tree lined road and (great for walks), and feels quiet and remote while enabling one to easy access to Mystic and New London. The Home is very large, with lots of room for guests. The home is very clean, well maintained with a nice laundry room. It was amazing to wake up and see the ocean from the bedroom window every morning and the deck was great for morning coffee. Nearly every window (including the kitchen) has a beautiful view! I would definitely recommend this home for rental and would love to visit again.
