Overview

About the property

Comfortable, newer 3 bed/2 bath, steps from river and village, yet peaceful

This is a newer home built with a style that fits perfectly in its historic district neighborhood. Comfortable, yet not stuffy, it is very easy to kick back and relax here. You'll love the open front porch for catching sea breezes and relaxing in the afternoon and evening, and the screened rear porch makes a cozy, inviting spot for morning coffee and other meals. The home affords decent privacy on a quiet and beautiful residential street - and in an amazing location - that is, if you like pleasant waterfront walks to and from an active and charming New England maritime village!

Downstairs has an open plan featuring the granite/stainless kitchen, breakfast bar, dining and living areas. On the first floor there is also a full bath and a queen bedroom (rear house entrance only requires three steps from grade to first floor). Upstairs are another queen bedroom, a bedroom with two twin beds and another full bathroom with laundry area.

This home is great for boaters who want to do a little land-lubbing; people with luck good enough for the area's big casinos; families enjoying the local museums, aquarium, etc.; couples, friends and others traveling from the nearby cities of Boston, New York and beyond to savor the local charm; and for couples and families in Mystic for a wedding in the area's beautiful setting. We are open to academic rentals, as well, and will give a lower monthly rate for the longer term.

Stay with us and find your own reasons to love the home, the village of Mystic and all of Southeast Connecticut.

We look forward to hosting your stay!

About John Brice

This is our summer home and we are opening it up to rental Guests for the first time in fall 2014. We love it, so if you are not staying there, we will be!

Why John Brice chose Connecticut

We chose this property because of all the cultural and recreational amenities of southeast Connecticut, and Mystic in particular, as well as the broader region. We also do some boating in Mystic each summer.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location! Quiet and peaceful, yet with an easy, beautiful walk to the heart of the village of Mystic.

Charming home in great location. Very clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This was the 2nd time we stayed at this home with 2 young kids. They loved playing in the house as well as on the porch. Although it was a coldish weekend in May again it was a perfect place to stay. There's a nice playground nearby, a great toy store and book store so it was easy to fill our down time from the local attractions. The hosts left a welcome snack package for us and the kids which is a nice touch after spending a couple hours traveling.

Very cute little house near Mystic

We were there for a wedding and so didn't get to spend as much time as we would have liked around the house. Loved having coffee on the porch.
