About Leona Rianhard
My husband and I are local business owners, married thirty years, with two wonderful children, and one wonderful son-in-law. We fell in love with this rental property years ago due to its family friendly "beach" ways. We live in the next town over and enjoy all outdoor activities, such as boating, jet-skiing, kayaking, fishing, hunting, skiing, and gardening. We all love to cook and be with family and friends. We believe travel is a great teacher and jump at the chance to explore new opportunities when we are not working.
Leona Rianhard purchased this House in 2013
Why Leona Rianhard chose Saybrook Manor
This property is ideally located steps to the beach and boat launch, with miles of connecting streets which are suitable for walking, running, or biking. Downtown Old Saybrook is a classic New England beach town just a bike ride away or a short ride in your car.
What makes this House unique
Ride a bike or take a walk along the many connecting streets or beaches at low tide. EASTERN SHORELINE, Conn. (WTNH) — From its quaint downtown areas to its picturesque beaches and plethora of attractions, the eastern part of Connecticut’s shoreline is being compared to the eastern end of Long Island.

Easy, breezy, wonderful beach house.
I can't say enough to describe how pleased I was with Leona - not only her wonderful beach house but Leona herself. What a wonderful experience she created for me and my 6 grandchildren. I was a bit apprehensive about bringing 6 children ranging in age from 6 to 16 to a rental property. But it was clear right from the start that Leona knows the beach house business. The house was set up to be both comfortable for beach-goers and attractive for a quiet glass of wine at the end of the day. The house was very well equipped and we wanted for nothing. The beds were comfy. There was an abundance of towels and beach goodies - chairs, umbrella, sand toys etc. There was a wonderful grill and we used it several times for lunch and dinner. And my older grandchildren loved having bikes to ride around the neighborhood. Of course, being able to walk out the door and have the beach 100 steps away was amazing. I am an early riser and took my coffee to the beach every morning to watch the world come alive. Another wonderful asset is that if you tire of the beach, there are a million things to do. I took my older grandchildren to the Goodspeed Opera House to see "Oliver." It was a treat for them and they loved it and didn't stop singing the songs for at least two days.. The younger crew I took on the Essex Steam Railroad and Boat ride. It was a huge hit.
I can't thank Leona enough not just for her house but for being so responsive to my questions. I would send a text and within minutes, she replied with all kinds of helpful information.
It was a great treat and I look forward to returning next Summer.
Nice house, open kitchen with dining room. Very nice porch. But there is only one bathroom and one of the rooms on the second floor doesn't have airconditioning. It get's really hot up there. A very nice house for a family with kids!
The cottage was definitely one of the best ... it was quiet, comfortable, and clean!
We loved staying so close to my sister-in-law in Saybrook because we were able to visit with family that came here from Australia. It was spacious enough to accommodate two of my daughters for 2 nights and my son and his girlfriend for the other 2 nights. The breeze coming from Long Island Sound kept us cool at night with little or no air conditioning. The neighborhood was so quaint, and I enjoyed using one of their bikes to explore the neighborhood. There was easy access to the beach, shopping areas, and restaurants. The cottage was so clean, and I particularly appreciated the owners providing many essentials such as bed linens, bath towels, kitchen towels, beach towels, and beach chairs ... it certainly made it easier for us to pack our car! We had a lovely week, and I would certainly stay there again ... our little vacation just went too fast! Donna L
The home was clean and modern!!
Everything was great, located within steps to the beach. The community was so friendly, even to renters. We highly recommend this property!!
Dear M and L,
Thank you for your kindness in your review, I know that you had a really busy week, as you were married last weekend, so I appreciate the time you spent to give a review. I would love to have a picture of you and L taken down at the pier at the end of the street. And, I just want to mention that your new husband was really nice and kind, and helpful when I brought you a few things. That means that you chose wisely and you should have a great marriage! Thank you for staying with us, another visitor from CA.-L
Great location, very close to the beach, house is decorated nicely. Outside shower is a plus, as is plenty of parking. Great yard for the kids to play ball. We love Old Saybrook, lots to do, great New England feel without the crowds of the Cape.
Great place to stay!
I loved the house and the location but it seemed the house had a lot of stuff falling apart. Towel racks would fall off the wall,cabinets wouldn't close, doors would creek a lot but overall we would stay again definitely!
Thank you for your review. We will have the towel rack fixed, as soon as we can, and appreciate the attention to this detail. We are glad you enjoyed the house and the location. We tried to be attentive to your needs and we felt the communication was excellent between the two parties. We strive to make the home as comfortable as possible knowing that the cottage is around 100 years old. That is part of the charm of a seaside rental. -Leona
