About the Property

A chef's paradise!! Incredible new kitchen, 6 burner gas stove, 12 ft ceiling.

Year Round Destination
Massive renovation just completed Spring 2016 with new kitchen designed by a local architect and a professional chef. Everything you need to create incredible meals. This is a chef's dream kitchen that also has a constantly updated guide of where to get the absolute best ingredients. There is a seafood market that features local fish and shellfish less than a mile away.
There are 9 professionally decorated rooms, with new hardwood, tile, and plank flooring throughout. State-of-the-art electronics are constantly upgraded and maintained.

Every season here has its own sounds, views and activities that are truly unique. Set on Mason's Island in a wooded, gated community, easily accessed by a short causeway. Situated between the historic seaside villages of Mystic and Stonington. Ideal for walking, biking and sightseeing. An active osprey nest is just off the back yard. Close to Mystic Seaport and Aquarium, Foxwood Casino, beaches, Newport Mansions, Block Island Ferry and Amtrak. Enjoy farmers markets, art festivals, outstanding shopping, great restaurants and local seafood. A dock is available for your small boat. The glassed in sun porch is surrounded on three sides by water; Perfect for viewing the breathtaking sunsets and enjoying the ocean breezes. The waterside beauty can be enjoyed year round at this home.

Location: The house is located in a protected wetlands area with many old growth trees on the property. The house was carefully designed to fit into the surrounding environment. Egrets, osprey, deer turkeys, red fox, swans, and ducks are frequent visitors. There are seal sightings in the winter months. The sun room is surrounded on three sides by water and is a phenomenal spot to relax, read a book, or dine and watch the constant parade of boats going to Mystic Seaport and the marinas.

Walking, running, cycling: Mason's Island is ideal for outdoor activities. Limited traffic and wide paved roads are ideal for bicycles, walkers and runners. More serious cyclers go venture off the island to experience historic, beautiful scenery and a great mix of flat and hilly areas. There is a fully equipped bicycle shop only 1.6 miles away.

Dining: There are many restaurants in the area. Numerous restaurants are within 1.6 miles in Mystic and also in Stonington Village about 5 miles away. Stonington is a tiny picturesque colonial whaling village with narrow streets, stately houses and a choice of many very good restaurants as well as wonderful shops and ocean views, museums and historic walks.

Posted rates are approximate. The actual rate will depend on factors such as party size, pets, special accommodations etc.

The SERVICE FEE of $211 is automatically generated by HomeAway. If we accepted payments by credit card, HomeAway would charge you this in addition to the rental fee. Like many owners, you pay us directly, so the service fee is a part of the rental fee.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1942

About: ***** **** 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

Why Mystic, Stonington, CT, USA:
My grandparents built this house in 1942 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

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
