Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: When we bought our cottage on the CT shore in Guilford, I was determined to provide our guests with all the comforts of home, with nice bed linens, towels, dishes, kitchenware and table cloths. Those things matter to me and I'm sure they do to you, too. The living space is serene and cozy--but also a great place to entertain family and friends. There are kayaks and bikes that work! I want you to enjoy the cottage as much as we do! Judy Stoeven Davies
