About The Owner

I have lived in Mystic for 23 years and would love to help you plan your trip! I bought my house 2 years ago, it was one of the fastest purchases I have ever made...I just knew it was the right place! I love my home and its location. It is newly renovated and I have decorated it with lovely art and artifacts from my travels around the world. I plan on doing some traveling, which is why I am looking to rent my home when I am not in town. You won't be disappointed, it is a special place!

The Owner purchased this house in 2013

Why The Owner chose Connecticut

Aside from the coziness and cool decor, it has beautiful views of the Mystic River from the front porch, living room and master bedroom. The Mystic Seaport is across the street and you can watch historic sailboats being refurbished from the porch. Walking in town to shop or dine is an easy 5 min walk along the river. From town, you can access the scenic River Rd., known as a cycling, jogging and walking trail to locals. If you are more inclined to walking in the woods, The Pequotsepos Nature Center is about a 10 min walk away, which offers miles of walking trails, as does the Coogan Farm, a 10 min walk to the trailhead from my house, in the other direction.

What makes this house unique

You can walk from the Amtrak train station in Mystic to this house. It is about a 10 min walk. I supply bikes and kayaks. At the end of my street, one house away from mine, is a boat launch, where you can easily launch one of three kayaks (2 single and 1 double), and you can paddle up and down the Mystic River. You can even paddle downtown for lunch!

Wonderful Long Weekend in great house!

  • 5 of 5

A small group of classmates came together to celebrate a 40th Reunion. The house was perfect. It had everything we needed to truly enjoy the weekend. The location was perfect to walk everywhere, and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook fabulous meals -- including grilling burgers in the back. The view from the back cottage of the Mystic River is beautiful! And, the owner, Dana, was very responsive to any questions we had. It was a great weekend, largely due to accommodations.

Beautiful house in a fantastic location ... recommended

  • 5 of 5

This the final house we stayed in, on our tour of the North East corner of USA. The house had everything we needed and was ideally situated. It's a stones throw from the Mystic River and we made of use of the kayaks provided by the owner. Right next to Mystic Seaport, overlooking the restoration of the Mayflower II ... if you use the kayaks, you get a better view into the hanger where the ship is being worked on. The town of Mystic is lovely, with loads of shops and restaurants to look into.

Pluses and Minuse

  • 3 of 5

The location was excellent...within walking distance of Mystic Seaport and nearby eateries. The big downer was no air conditioning...had it been a really hot couple of days we'd have suffered. Bedroom fans helped but wouldn't have in hot weather. Really only sleeps five comfortably. All appliances worked well and there were sufficient dishes, sheets,and towels. While we didn't use them the three available Kayaks were available. The living room furniture was not particularly comfortable.
