About Eric Weston

.

Eric Weston purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Eric Weston chose Connecticut

We purchased this home after looking in the area for a couple of years. We have family who spent time in the area over the years and summered here. Our private beach is one of the nicest in the area and also is usable during high tides which is not the case with all the beaches. There are various food establishments in close proximity.

What makes this cottage unique

The screened in porches, Private beach steps from the door and the shade provided by our "historical" Mulberry tree caught our attention and have since been a place to read, talk and just relax.

Beautiful home close to beach

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here for 2 months while on assignment as travel nurses. The house is well maintained and stocked with anything you may need. There is only a short walk to a private beach and it's located in a beautiful and safe area. The owner Eric stays in contact throughout your time and responds immediately to any questions. -Chelsey

My husband, daughter and I rented Eriks home for 21/2 weeks. Our son and his family live about 10 minutes away so it made it easy to visit back and forth. The location was excellent - close to the beach and many paths and roads for walking or jogging. Being that it was winter we didn't make use of the outdoor shower or swimming but I'm sure that would make the house even more enjoyable and would love to return in the summer. There is parking behind the house which can take 2 cars.

The house has 4 bedrooms with plenty of closet space. Again in the summer you could enjoy the 2 huge screened in front porch which is on the 2nd floor and the main floor. The main floor porch has a large table to enjoy eating outside. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, pots and pans that you might need and has a table which can easily seat 6 people. It has a wonderful fireplace that we used constantly. TV and stereo were there but we didn't use it and of course Wifi which we used constantly as we were working at times. Although the Erik and Barbara were not present they left us very clear

instructions that were sent to us ahead of time as well as instruction sheet printed out at the house. The instructions were not overwhelming - just practical things like garbage day, key location, instructions for the fireplace etc. Erik was always available if we had questions and responded to our text immediately.

We also had a small Christmas tree in the family room which really helped make our Christmas all that we wanted it to be.

Thank you Eric and Barbara for sharing your home with us. We hope to be back again.

Just Fine.

  • 3 of 5

This was a nice home that had everything needed for a weekend wedding at Buffalo Bay. The owner sought to offer assistance however necessary, though the property was overpriced for what you get, particularly given that we were charged for peak prices in late September.

Lovely Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many summers! Beginning in 1996. Each year our family has grown with weddings son in laws and grandchildren. We usually rent for 2 to 4 weeks depending on price and what vacation the kids can get. This house was lovely with a beautiful yard and outside shower. The cupboards were empty for our food stuff and there were plenty of pots and pans. The porch downstairs was perfect for outdoor meals or puzzles on the large round table. Upstairs porch is great for sleeping but it was way too humid while we were there! Maybe next year!! I met the neighbors right away and they are very nice. The beach is right down the street. You will need beach shoes for the beach and water. We found great restaurants "Moxie" Madison...Aspen Old Saybrook.. Pilots Point Westbrook and one our children gave us as a gift "Bar Bouchee" That was fabulous. We had a wonderful time. You will be very happy at this house and make some great memories!!
