Why Richard Greer chose Old Saybrook

Lovely and pristine getaway, in a cherished family home for decades.

What makes this house unique

Our family fell in love with this beach front home because of its extraordinary views as well as the graceful floor plan, that is perfect for both entertaining a large group or cozy and alone. We have enjoyed many summers as well as holidays in this quiet and peaceful setting, relaxing to the sound of the waves breaking on the beach wall.

Great family reunion at The Gulls

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend The Gulls for your next stay in Old Saybrook. Everyone in our family of 8 found Richard’s home very comfortable & accommodating. We especially enjoyed watching the sun rise & sun set from the sunroom and sitting by the fireplace at night. The thoughtful fruit display upon our arrival was so very thoughtful & much appreciated. Thank you Richard for making our reunion a wonderful memory.

Winter stay

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay over the holidays. Richard was a wonderful host, the house was well equipped and warm and cozy! We loved the water views of sunrise and sunset! It was just the two of us but the house would be comfortable with a larger group too.

Gorgeous, spacious,ideally situated home with stunning views, and a perfect place for our family!!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place for our mother's 80th birthday celebration weekend over Thanksgiving and Richard's home was perfect. More lovely and welcoming than the photos, there was plenty of room to spread out and be together.The house was spotlessly clean, plenty of fresh towels, pillows, blankets and other bedding, and a wonderfully equipped spacious kitchen to cook together and hang out. We were a group of a grandmother, 3 teenagers, and 4 couples, (my sisters and our husbands). The house is furnished elegantly and comfortably, plenty of place to sit comfortably and watch the sunrise and sunset over the water from many windows in the home. we were welcomed by a lovely bowl of fruit, a bottle of wine and a welcome note, and the owner was available to answer questions by text during our stay. There are so many personal touches that make this an ideal spot, and we can't say enough positive things to convey how much we enjoyed being there. The interaction with the owner was extremely easy and friendly, and he made every effort to be helpful and accommodating. it's a gorgeous location and we hope to come up with a reason to go back soon. This is a wonderful value for the money, with everything in great condition. We have only the highest praise for Richard's home and plan to return!

Women's Weekend Wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

The home was much larger than I expected. The light was exceptional. It felt just like coming home. The owner was accommodating in every way. The view of the Sound was very much loved. The beds were extraordinarily comfortable.

Historic Old Saybrook where the Connecticut River meets the Long Island Sound is a classic New England sea side community and is well known for its abundance of stately shingled homes and historic districts. Conveniently located between Boston and New York city, Old Saybrook has long been a haven of summer retreat. The historical town center features charming shops and restaurants, several historic churches and most notably The Kate (the Katherine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center) which is famous for its theatrical productions, live music performances, and classic movie showings all year long.
