This home has a unique history of early Americana. The property was originally built in 1860 as a button factory. Early American fashions of the late 1700's to mid-1800's required many buttons on both male and female garments. Buttons were even essential to underwear, shoes, corsets and women's basque waist. Buttons of the time period were made of ivory, bone, shell, wood, stone, glass, whale bone or animal horn. This property was originally built as a factory, producing and selling buttons to clothiers of the Guilford and CT shoreline area. The colonial character of this property has been preserved, yet it features the modern conveniences you expect in a vacation home.
The price is right for this house! We ensure the property is clean, crisp, welcoming and affordable for guests.

About Yvette Fournier
Mother, Grandmother, wife, sister, friend,....Creative Spirit..Founder of Spaces of the Heart. This house has allowed me to keep building a Healing Art Center in Old Saybrook, Ct..Today would be Jason's 41st Birthday, Tragically his life was cut short almost 18 years ago. The loss of Jason was so devasting for me. I could hear Jason say, Mom just paint. I painted, I went back to Maui alone, I had to Heal from one of the most horrific times of my life. On the same day, two years later my Mother would die..I went back to Maui,where I had lived the last few months with Jason.I have never told the story, of the reason this house is all part of Spaces of the Heart. Please go to Spaces of the Heart....Love houses and finding treasures...This is my 10th year renting this home. Love to hear that people had a great time and enjoyed the space .I was born in Franklin, Ct and have had the opportunity to live in many amazing places on this planet. I seem to keep coming back to the Shoreline of Ct...Yvette 203-444-4477 http://spacesoftheheart.com/

Perfect for a weekend getaway!
The house was perfect for a weekend getaway. Convenient to New Haven and so close to the water!
charming! It was Guilford at its best!
It was the best place to be! The house had the features and the charms of what I liked about the new england area - and to get a chance to revisit the area and my family during the Christmas holidays. We don't have fireplaces in Florida at our homes, so being able to take pictures of the stockings hung on the mantel with a fire going was one of many memories. The house had many features - washer dryer range and dishwasher - the refrigerator was huge; the showers were nice and hot! and the grandkids loved having their own rooms --- upstairs!! not a thing you usually find in Florida! Very nice and close to the Green.
Thank you Darlene,
I am so happy you had snow on Christmas day and enjoyed the home.
Welcome back anytime.
Happy New Year,
Comfortable and cozy ....good location close to 'Green' ...within walking distance ....responsive owner....thank you for the hospitality!
Great spot for a group
We rented this home for a group of 8 people coming to CT for a wedding. We couldn't have picked a better spot. The sleeping arrangements were perfect and the location was convenient. We especially loved hanging out on the large deck. Thank you for a great stay!
What a great house in a neat town! Beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. Owner was very easy to work with and booking was a breeze. Definitely would stay here again! The dogs loved it too! Great location also.
Adorable country home
I stayed here with a large group of 9 people, and it was perfect. The home is very cozy, but spacious enough to fit everyone. The house was adorably decorated - I would stay here again!
