Wonderful gem!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage for bringing our daughter to college and then for some vacation time. It was seriously the most well-appointed kitchen of the many, many kitchens that we have rented! The outdoor shower was fantastic for cleaning up after a day at the beach, and we ended up using it on non-beach days too, it was so nice. The backyard felt very private, although we didn't spend much time there. The front porch was a great place to read in the evenings (and the wi-fi, cable, board games, and puzzles gave the older kids something to do in the evenings as well). There were three beaches within walking distance. The closest one was two blocks away but was a bit rocky during low tide for preference of my youngest. The largest one was close to Rocky Neck State Park and was great for playing on the sand bar and for hunting crabs and shells during low tide. We appreciated the beach gear, since we had flown in and obviously couldn't bring our chairs etc. We took one day trip to Mystic and one to New London; otherwise, we were at the beach! Peter and Pat were easy to work with and very accommodating, and having a next door contact for emergencies or quick questions was great as well. We would certainly love to stay with them next time we are in the area!

A top notch experience

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is pristine & well appointed. A 3 minute walk delivers you to a sandy beach with a tremendous view of the Bay. The entire area is as quiet as one might hope for when on vacation. Bicycling & walking within the area is safe and enjoyable. Kayaking is superb.

I don't think it would be possible to find nicer people then Peter & Pat to rent from. I recommend this without reservation or hesitation.

Felt like home, but BETTER

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this cottage for a week at the end of August, and totally loved it.

Right from the moment we walked into the cottage, we felt at home. Our hosts were extremely hospitable. They met us there and explain everything we would need to know. They even left us some surprise snacks, cookies and wine.

Everything you would need on vacation was here. The washer/dryer and outdoor shower were needed with three small kids. And there were knee boards and chairs there for us to borrow.

This wonderful home away from home is within walking distance to three beaches. The closest one is only two blocks away. My older boys enjoyed collecting shells and using their skim boards.

The one day that the weather did not cooperate, we decide to make the short 20 min drive to Mystic.

I would recommend Peter and Pat's cottage to anyone :)

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying at this property. The owners were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. There was a beautiful little child friendly beach a few minutes walk away. It was so nice we ended up spending most of our time on the beach or at the cottage. We also went to the local submarine museum, mystic seaport and mystic aquarium. All three were brilliant and our kids had a great time.

Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay in this very comfortable cottage. We are a family of 6 including 3 teenagers and found what we could easily describe as a home away from home. The area is idyllic. Quaint, picturesque vicinity; comfortable and cozy accommodations. The personal touches offered by the owners were exceptional. We stayed for a week and could easily have stayed much longer and still been quite comfortable. We enjoyed the local scenery from Niantic, New London, Mystic and Waterford as well as easy access to NYC and Boston. If we had more time we could have easily seen and done more. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay!
