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 West Mystic
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.

This lovely house was perfect for long girls weekend
Beautiful home with everything we needed. Thank you! We enjoyed it and the lovely touches
Beautiful home, thoughtful details and very attentive owners!
The house is charming! An easy walk to town and all the shops and restaurants! Open floor plan and hardwood floors, comfortable beds and spacious rooms made for a wonderful 3 days in Mystic! The owners were also very attentive and quick to respond! I hope to come back and stay again when we come back to CT!!
Our family really enjoyed our time together in this house. Perfect for our family game nights and dinners. The terraced backyard is amazing - screened in porch - patio with grill - hammock - very pretty and relaxing space. We visited the Mystic Seaport Museum and Aquarium which we all enjoyed. A nice stroll to the Mystic River where we saw a rainbow; quick walk into town for delicious coffee and pastries at Sift as well as great restaurants and shops. We can't wait to go back.
Thanks for the review and we are so glad you enjoyed Mystic and the house! Please come back soon!
Memorable stay in Mystic!
The home is located on a quiet street within easy walking distance of central Mystic. The neighborhood is right out of a Norman Rockwell painting. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine as well as crackers & cheese spread in the refrigerator. The screen porch is a special feature. The owner promptly responded to a minor issue that came up. Our only concern was the lack of an access sidewalk, which was not a big problem.
Thank you for your honest feedback and positive review. We agree that a front walk from the driveway to the house is in order - right now it is just the grass of the front lawn. We expect to put a walk in by next season and hope you will return to try it out!
weekend in mystic
the house was very comfortable and easy access to town. Could walk almost anywhere. Short drive to wineries. Celebrated with all our children and grandchild my wifes birthday. Having a house so comfortable and well kept made it easy to just relax and enjoy each others company
Home away from Home in Mystic Connecticut.
We were so happy to be in Mystic Connecticut. We have never been there so the experience was fantastic. Our home away from home was just spectacular, we had all the comforts that you could think of. Every thing was at our fingertips. The rooms were so cozy and the street was from days of old. We hope to visit Mystic again and would be more than happy to return to our beautiful home away from home. John and Rita are the best hosts we have ever encountered. Thank you for making us feel like part of the family.
Walk to restaurants, shops and marinas. Mystic Seaport and Aquarium are directly across the tranquil yet interesting river.
