Recent Connecticut reviews

  • Lovely accommodations

    "My husband and I just returned from our vacation in Connecticut, and I have nothing but good things to say about our experience. From the beginning, the owner was very pleasant and so easy to work with. I felt as though I had known her for a very long time. The property is beautiful, clean, and lacks for nothing. Our grandchildren visited and were pleasantly surprised to hear they were allowed to use the kayaks. I would, without a doubt, recommend this property to my friends and relatives."

  • Weekend Getaway

    "We really enjoyed the few days away at this cozy, quaint home in such a lovely spot. Just about1/2 a block from the beach, I spent time down by the water, we took long walks and enjoyed meandering through the town of Madison. Also enjoyed relaxing by the fire at night. Philippa was lovely and only a phonecall away if needed."

  • Idyllic, peaceful corner of CT

    "We spent 8 nights at this perfectly lovely cottage and could have stayed much longer, maybe a few months. It is in the most perfect location, a large private lot right on the Housatonic River. There is lots of room to sit outdoors and admire the scenic river or stay indoors in the very comfy living area. Although it was 90 degrees most days, I was eyeing the fireplace and wishing it were colder. The bedroom was spacious, the bed very comfortable and the bathroom huge, housing a very convenient washer and dryer. Everything was very clean and in perfect working order. Kitchen was small but absolutely fully stocked. The nicest aspect of this house, other than the privacy and peacefulness, was that it was clearly a working house that someone lives in regularly with everything anyone would need to get along. We loved it to death and hope to go back, this time with our bicycles, for another week in fall or spring. It is a very beautiful corner of CT."

  • Another Perfect Vacation at Capt'n Rick's!!

    "This is the second summer that we have booked The Captain's Cottage. Everything about this home is fantastic for a relaxing vacation. It's much more preferable than Cape Cod or Rhode Island....much less crowded and far more relaxed. Very close to attractions in Mystic: the aquarium, seaport and boat/fishing excursions. The Ct River area also has lots to offer. Restaurants are close by and serve terrific food. But, the reason we keep coming back is that this is the perfect vacation house for a large group of people of varying ages. The beach is absolutely beautiful. It is extremely well-groomed. It is not crowded. The beach is very delightful for the youngest vacationers and their parents. Gentle water to wade/in and a small rock wall to explore. Older kids will enjoy swimming to the dock. Importantly, the beach is only steps away from the house. The house is extremely spacious. It's nice to have space to be alone on vacation. The front porch has lots of room for entertaining. My brothers and sisters as well as their kids and my parents always make it down here for a day or two. The house has been upgraded nicely since our last stay in 2014. New appliances, new grill and new TVs. Lots of ocean air and sunshine! When I asked my kids and my sister's family where they wanted to go for vacation this year, everyone answered: "Captain Ricks!!" I love it here! I'm seriously thinking of retiring in the area. In the meantime, we'll be vacationing at the most comfortable house on the CT shoreline as often as we can. Thank you, Rick, for your great hospitality as well as another great vacation."
