  • A magical Thanksgiving

    "My husband and I with three adultchildren and two partners, plus an adorable dog spent the Thanksgiving holiday at Granite Lodge in charming Guilford, CT. The spacious house was perfect for our Thanksgiving holiday, plenty of room to gather together and space for privacy. We absolutely loved the fabulous well-equipped kitchen with lots of counters to prepare food and visit. Hope Viviani was available and helpful with the very few questions we had about procedures. We all agreed that Granite Lodge provided the perfect setting for a splendid and memorable family gathering!"

  • Lovely family time

    "Despite some confusion over our arrival time all was fixed or compensated for. We had 5 children under the age of 8 including an infant and 7 adults...plenty of space. Two more children and another 2 adults came to just spend the day...it was lovely. The grill was not working but we loved the kitchen setup and dining areas. The hot tub was a big success and the shower in the master bathroom was wanted by everyone. Easy access to beach and park and local eateries as well as huge market. Property manager and owner very responsive to needs. Thank you for a wonderful family time."

  • Unplugged, But Not Remote

    "My husband and I needed to unplug. So, we spent the latter part of September at Ennis Cottage – a home-away-from home: comfy, cozy, clean, and well-equipped, cool during the hot spell, and warmed when weather turned cool. The bed, very important for my bad back, was totally comfortable and provided a really restful sleep. The cordial and conscientious owners provided a binder with answers to almost all the questions guests usually ask. Yet they were available to answer queries. A private beach across the street offered a super place to enjoy the fresh air, sunshine, and a great swim. Yet not far away was a wide selection of restaurants, plus great markets for fresh fish, meat and vegetables. Although we did check our e-mail daily, the tv remained untouched. So much to enjoy. The time flew, and it was hard to leave. Our thanks to the friendly and caring owners for doing everything to make us eager to return."

  • 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!"
