  • A Relaxing Shoreline Vacation.

    "Mary's home is lovely, clean, and comfortable! It has everything you need to whip up a delicious local seafood dinner, as well as plenty of linens, a washer and dryer, and a backyard where I ate breakfast every morning. The location is excellent for a shoreline getaway, quiet but with many nearby attractions. The Owenego Beach Club is about a half block away and offers reasonable casual waterfront dining....lobster roll anyone? There is also a lovely path along the Sound for strolling after dinner. You can walk down Linden Avenue and get to several beach options....pleasantly deserted during the week. Yes, the Thimble Islands cruise is a must.....local flavor, beautiful views. Mary's house has AC, but I was comfortable with all the windows open, enjoying the fresh breezes and scents of the nearby salt marshes, where osprey and other shore birds cavort. Mary is close by if needed, and quick to answer questions. She also provided me with a list of nearby restaurants and suggestions on seafood markets. The nearby shoreline towns are charming and worth a visit. Branford is hopping with breweries and restaurants, and do not miss my favorite shop, Taken for Granite in Stony Creek! Altogether a relaxing stay...would highly recommend!"

  • A joyful relaxing respite

    "The cottage is just the perfect place to stay for a relaxing, quiet retreat. We really enjoyed the indoor and outdoor space immensely. in the early evening we were able to sit and watch an osprey as it surveyed the landscape below from a tree on the edge of the property. We loved the marsh and water views. Made me pine of my younger days growing up back east. We will be back for sure. Thank you for a wonderful stay. The cottage is delightful!"

  • Wonderful Island Getaway Less than 2 Hours from NYC

    "My friends and I had a wonderful weekend at Tracy's beautiful home on the Thimble Islands, and we found Tracy to be a great, accommodating host. Located on Governor's Island, the home is nestled amongst a tight-knit community of cottages, and a stone's throw from the water. Just a 5 minute boat ride from the harbor in Branford, It is a beautiful place to spend a weekend truly away from it all. Note that the home has been standing for at least a hundred years, so you should expect a certain level of rustic island charm. But if you don't mind these quirks you're bound to have a lovely weekend and will leave feeling a great sense of remove from the pace of modern life."
