"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!"
