What makes this House unique
The view from the back of the house, our large tree and the incredible SUNSET CHECKS anytime its not raining makes this the perfect relaxation spot. I work full time, but feel like I am on vacation every day. Whether you want to just sit on the bench by the water, use the oversized hammock, sit on your covered patio, kayak or observe the water/sunset from the pool deck with your favorite beverage in your hand, this is a peaceful location just right for someone looking to relax.

Great weekend stay!
We just checked out after staying the weekend. The unit was exactly as described, clean, spacious and had a great view looking out into palmers cove. Pat did everything to make sure we had a pleasant stay. Highly recommended!
100% Satisfied! !!!!
100% Satisfied! !!! Great beautiful house, location to die for peaceful and serene . Could not be happier with our choice of location. Pat the owner was a great hostess and very helpful during our stay. We would definitely return in the future.
Wonderful home away from home, and wonderful stay!
It is quiet, peaceful, and beautiful here, especially gazing at the spectacular sunsets, listening to birdsong, and seeing the resident snowy egret come to roost on the big rock at water's edge. The property is lovingly landscaped too.
The living space is spacious, charming, immaculate, comfortable. And our hostess Pat thoughtfully provided every creature comfort, even toiletry items that perhaps we might have forgotten to pack.
We enjoyed relaxing by the crystal-clear pool and taking a daily dip. We used Pat's kayaks to paddle around the cove and even traveled to a nearby beach, where we stopped for a pleasant swim.
We enjoyed many nearby attractions and activities, such as Mystic Aquarium, the US Navy Submarine Museum, the Denison Nature Center, Olde Mistick Village, Foxwoods Casino, and Ocean Beach Park. Pat provided a helpful basket of info about local things to see and do, and also recommended some events that were happening nearby during our stay, like the Blessing of the Fleet parade and Tuesday night live music on the beach - just around the corner!
After so much fun, we dined like locals at outdoor marina-side lobster and clam shacks, followed by homemade ice cream; then, peaceful nights of great sleep on the very comfortable bed, with soft, gorgeous linens. What a perfect vacation!
Joanne and Jim, I am so pleased that your stay was all you had hoped for. It was truly a pleasure to have you grace my home with your presence and joyful energy....which matches the space itself so well!!!! Your caring attitude and respect for my home itself and the amenities available is greatly appreciated.
I love hosting people and making sure the experience matches expectations....AND its always EXTRA special when the space itself becomes part of the enjoyable vacation! It does my heart good to see others enjoying this special area as much as I do. Hoping to see you both back soon!
An ideal spot for true rest and relaxation
If one wants to experience a special place with true Southeastern Connecticut charm, Pat's spot on Palmer's Cove is the place! A charming setting right on an estuary off the Mystic River, morning breakfasts and evening cocktails are blessed with water views, soft sea breezes, and the occasional egret or heron, unimpeded with other guests or noisy elevators. Pat, our host, was attentive but not obtrusive, and has a wealth of local knowledge on beaches, restaurants, and sites. (Her pool was fun too!) Go and relax, enjoy, and refresh!
Enjoyable Respite along Palmers Cove
The owner, Pat is very gracious. She was respectful and responsive to our needs at all times... And the setting of the property is really lovely!! The property offers serenity on its covered patio area, the pool and deck, as well as the waterfront grounds bordering Palmers Cove. It is wonderfully located to easily embark on day trips exploring in and around the region. We enjoyed exploring the cove and coastal waters by kayak, sailing with Captain Darin on the Poet's Lounge around Fisher Island Sound, and traveling to Mystic and Block Island. The region has so much to offer. Pat offered wonderful suggestions in her welcome packet and never steered us wrong. We absolutely loved eating at Abbots for open air lobster, The Boathouse in Old Mystic Village and ordered yummy lunches to go from Mystic Market.
Initially, we were a bit surprised that the guest area's living space in this VRBO was so open to the owner's living area from the entryway, both visually and auditorially, without having a door of separation. We were a bit self conscious as it didn't feel completely private. We learned to adjust accordingly. It really is more like a beautiful bed and breakfast, where you have your own bedroom and bath and semi-private shared communal spaces, coupled with terrific amenities and a sweet hostess. We modified our "hang-out" places on the property to accommodate our need for greater personal space and had a marvelous time at the rental.
Temperatures were frequently in the upper eighties and nineties with high humidity during our stay. Pat offered AC, but we found the fans provided created enough relief for our comfort. We appreciated her kindness and courtesy. It was a wonderful vacation and we would definitely consider staying with her again!
Tranquil getaway with beautiful water view
This getaway trip was everything we hoped for! A lovely spot on the water, very quiet, and relaxing. As others said, Pat is a thoughtful, gracious host. We were delighted with our stay and will be back soon!
Seaport Museum, Nautilus Submarine Museum, Old Mystic Village, downtown Mystic with numerous galleries and shopping. Casinos within a 20 minute ride for those rainy days!
